I'm backatcha!

...or whatever it is that 9ice was trying to say.
Speaking of 9ice, his Gongo Aso album is straight fire! My faves on that album are: Gongo Aso (Duhhhh), Kasa Final and Street Credibility but practically every track is hot! Check it out....

Ok, I have done my good deed aka free promo for the day.

Now on to the heart of the marra!

Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico was amazing. Absolutely amazing. I had a really good time with the small group of people that I went with. No drama, attitudes or foolishness from anyone (and you know that is a huge deal when you're on vacay)...we really got to do a lot of sight seeing, partying, laying by the beach...Oh I rocked my 2 piece o! I didn't exactly make the beach body plan work but you know me! I still made it, errrmm....chopulating that good ol' 'rican food, broke my strip club virginity but the strippers were hella dry looking with their boobless, nyashless selves, and matter of fact, one of the clubs that we went to had hired male strippers...apparently it was some sort of ladies night and boy o boy, my eyes saw all sorts of stuvvings o. I mean, all in all...I had a FAB time. Infact I'm inspired to go on vacay every year so make I start my little travel fund for the '09.
On my way back, I had a 4 hour layover in Miami so I got a chance to leave the airport and go down to South Beach and chilled for 2 hours or so doing nothing in particular, just people watching and window shopping. I've always wanted to go to Miami/Orlando so at least I can say that I kinda sorta been in Miami but I'm planning a real trip soon.

Sorry sha, I absolutely suck when it comes to taking pics...I don't even know why I own a camera so no pics.

Naija Movies
In a previous post where I commented about watching Naija movies, I noticed that Miss NDQ made a comment 'bout how I should mail some to her. My sister, don't tell me you aint never heard of Please say you
But on the realz, what is going on in Nollywood? I mean what is really hood in the Nollay? Na so I come break my 2 month hiatus enter Onlinenigeria the other day and what did I see? A movie titled 'Beyonce and Rihanna' in a fit of serious amusement, I tok say make I chook eye watch small ting. Na so I come notice say Oga Jim Iyke dey play the main character and ooh ooh $1 for anyone who can guess what his name was?
Jay-Z of course!
*Blank stare*
Nollywood, we need to do BETTER! And that's all I'm gonna say on this issue (for now)

In regards to my most recent post, who tok say na single blues? Abeg stop am o...we go fight! I no fit comment again without some pipu concluding say me sef wan marry but I never find hubby? Afronuts na you o...I go beat you!

In regards to commenting within your comment box, how do you do it? And I have to give props to NDQ for this one because she always replies commenters in her comment box. I know this 'cos I go back to read what she said to me...LOL. And chick be having like 100 comments...I hail you o!
So my blog pipu, make I ask na...if you make a comment and the blog owner doesn't reply to your comment in his/her comment box, do you consider this to be rude? Just curious...

Peace and Love.

Nkeiruka has just updated her relationship status on Facebook... MARRIED, ENGAGED or MARRIED WITH ONE BOMBOY ON THE WAY.

Cat damn!

I mean I just logged onto FB and the thing just assailed me left, right and center. If it aint a relationship status update, it's a new photo album showcasing the wonderful details of the wedding day/honeymoon.
And I'm like huh? *Blank stare*

My brain just can't put it together. I swear it can't. For one, it's like ok we are young babes still in our prime. I thought we were gonna wait till we were getting closer to 30 and all partied out before we decide to settle down. (Umm but apparently, it seems like that's just me..LOL).
And I've known most of these chicks for a good minute/have history with them and this lil brain of mine can't imagine them in the wife/mother role.

I mean, half of these babes went to boarding school with me; We knelt on the same lawn for 8 hours, scrubbed the same toilets and campaigned for the same prefect positions in SS3. And now they married? Ok brain..process. process. process.

The other half partied with me; We wore our pum pump shorts and felt cute, went to the same reunions and really did lift up our hands and scream 'baaalllinnggg' in the club. And now they are breast feeding little bomboy while their hubbies look on lovingly. Brain, imma need you to start working hard now.

Or maybe it's just extra strange to me because we aint even 26 yet. Because you see, when I was younger and I thought about brain always jumped to an age > 26. Now I am older, and my brain still jumps to an age > 26. I guess some things don't change.

But, I'm learning that everyone is different and different strokes definitely work for different folks.

I am no where near married, not even remotely thinking of it at this point, do not see it in my short term future (read 2 years or so), and I swear my main concerns now are who to forward my resume to and what color of shoes to wear to work tomorrow. LMAO....priorities sha!!!

And on the other hand, Nkeiru baby is probably ready and has been ready for a minute, can't wait to settle and start doing the motherhood and wifey thing.

Definitely different strokes for different folks.

So, I'm gonna recover from this mini shock at how everyone is growing up and not the lirru babes we used to be. I'm gonna try to separate who we are now from who we used to be and not exclaim 'Yekpa' next time I see a FB status update and immediately of how the bride-to-be/bride and I used to scrub the red house toilets every saturday morning. I will try not to think of how we were at every bubbling party that was thrown and how we met up at the reunion in '04 and partied till the sun came up. That was then, this is now.

But as for me? For now, I'll be content with being the wedding guest who posts up by the open bar, chopulates all the wedding food and flirts with the groomsmen. My state of mind is still 'Girls just wanna have fun' and I'm content with doing just that so there will be no status updates from this end anytime soon.


P.S:- Can I just say that I LOVE you guys? I read your well wishes and I was truly touched. Thank you! :D... My tooth is almost healed and I get to take my stitches out tomorrow.
