Untitled...

On people seeing me and saying stuff like 'This babe sef, I only see you at parties/events' or 'Socialite'...
Kini big deal? I always respond with...'abeg which kain eye wey you carry to see me for this party na? No be your own eye...abi na video camera?'. The same way you see me at events, is the same way I am also seeing you at events and If you only see me at events, then that must mean that you kwa, you only be at events too. Abi you want to come to my job to see me between the hours of 9-5? Or you wanna come up to my crib to visit me? If you even have the privilege of running into me at events then thank your lucky stars and STFU. Haba!

Speaking of events sha...
I think I am all wedded out. If someone asks me 'whachy get up to in the summer of 2009?'...I'll include weddings as one of the main things that I got up to almost every weekend. Na wa o! And the thing be say, aint nothing new popping off at these weddings sef. It's like a different couple but the same ol' crowd.
Then again isn't that the story with this DMV area sef? Same ol' faces up in the social scenes; and there are always different circles but ultimately the same ol' folk.
I am about to cross out the 'bubbler' in my description and stick to catching up on episodes of Dexter on Showtime onDemand during my weekends. Psssssh...
I was talking to my fam and asked her how she found all that new stuff to do in the city that she moved to and she told me that she pretty much googled young professional events in her field/random clubs for things that she was interested in...e.g Book club etc etc and took it from there. I just might look into that, look for other things to get into.

Keeping in touch...
'This babe, no one hears from you o' or 'Na wa o, nobody knows what is going on with you'. These are some of the examples of comments that I get from 2 groups of people who I associate my 'childhood' type of memories with: My PH massive and my feddy girls. With the PH folk, it was more of a conscious decision to kinda sorta keep my distance; thanks to the fact that PH is and always was a small place so even abroad, news among us tends to travel fast + the recently discovered bishassedness amongst some of us, na im I come tok say abeg make I just dey maintain for my little corner o jare, you don't need to be in the loop about what is going on with me, just as I am really not in the loop about what is going on with you too!...I remember when one of our own was getting married and people in Jand were filling me about a wedding that was going on around my hood. Na so e be na, to your tents O Israel.
As for my feddy girls, I can't say that it was a conscious effort. I guess you can say that it just happened...Ha!
You know how we all graduated from high school and all promised to keep in touch, and yes for the first couple of months everyone called everyone else but somehow life happened and we fell off on our own ends. Even now in obodo oyibo, I can't say that I talk to anyone on a constant basis save for my MD massive + my heartbeat and my Galfriend. Everyone else na 'when I see you, we yarn' or 'Imma drop the random check up on you call every 3 months' and don't side eye me...I think it's an absolute 2 way street. It's not like anyone has been falling over theirselves to see how Mgbeks is doing either so it is what it is. And In the meantime...thank God for Facebook sha o. At least I know that folk are alive...

Bloggers out and about...
I met the oh so lovely CultureCynic on Friday night. Pretty coincidental stuff since i just threatened to pull her hair, If I ever met her...just a couple of days ago and yes, I made good on my threat. :-D
She had a very burriful smile (She hardly ever smiles in her pics so I couldn't tell before), and seemed sooo very nice. (*Ahem*, we all know what a winchy she really is) not to mention she can get down on the dance floor. I peeped her grooving major to some songs o...(Uh uh girl, I had my eye on you!). Twas absolutely fantabulous to meet you my dia. Next time I see you, I'm pulling more of that hair and highjacking you for the thrifting zones.
Also ran into Ag of SoulBoutique on Sarraday night as well. Not a first timer on this end but I st
ill dey send sharrouts. We have to discuss that bag of yours very soon o!

Bday coming up...
In less than 2 weeks, I will be a year older...(Shoutouts to all my LEOS). I've never really been a bday celebration person and I certainly never did anything major for those milestone bdays either, so ahem...nothing much will be popping off on this end for the bday either. And speaking of birthdays, am I like the only person who doesn't mind getting older? My friend says that '25' is her official age now even though her azz is not no darn 25. LOL...ah well, I am thankful for another (somewhat uneventful yet eventful) year that is almost gone.

I had some other yarniz but I don forget as per I was doing a million other things while typing this entry up + it's 12:30am so my azz had better hop into bed. On that note, good night blogsville. Enjoy the rest of your week...

A couple of my friends in the DC area also checks up on that Young Black Professional Site to see what's poppin' off in the area. They like it. Speed dating, haunted house, mingling on Spirit of Washington, etc. That sorta thing. They always invite me. I always decline. lol. Well, except for the Wine Festivals. ;o)

Lady X said...

I love Dexter!!!
I also don't like it when people say 'Ahn you've fashied me' or 'You haven't even called me' or some shit. Like you said it's a two way street! If I didn't call your ass why didn't you call mine!

I like to keep in touch with important people in my life :)
And I'm not even first or
second to comment...mtseww...one day one day!

Reverence said...

smh @ you and Jaycee, i thought we already established that our bdays are right after each other?


ok off to go nap. its raining and BEC is not the most unboring material

Tay-mee said...

Lol..ahn ahn people are funny oh, are we not at the same event together..nawa.

As per keeping in touch, I feel you!! There are some people I just "eliminate", plus I'm very bad at keeping in touch with people who are present in my life now sef, so for one primary school friend to be yarning me that I don't keep in touch, that one na serious waste of saliva.

Happy birthday in advance..let us know on the day oh, so that we know where the parry at!!

CultureCynic said...

hahahaha it was sooooooooooo cool to run into you....actually that venue is filled with NIgerians every friday, my friend DJ Chick (best DJ in DC btw) guaranteees them all the Dbanj and Makoossa they can handle, so tht means they COME every friday, actually it used to be on the 3rd floor (international nights) but they moved it to that Sauna of a first floor , it is like an Ariwa oven there.
