Congrats madam, its a .........


so my colleague's wife 'put to be bed ' on monday n we ve been popping mineral and fish roll like no 2mrw. the guy's so happy, he just dey call announce to everybody,  "iyawo mi ti bi mo"  (my wife has given birth), and naturally they ask him "ki lo bi??" (wetin she born??:) his reply... BIG BOY!!!  

eyin temi, which one be small boy again??? neways congrats to *juwon n his wife, hopefully i ll attend d iko-omo (naming ceremony)  Now to d koko and its a question, Why is it dat, as soon as u tell someone dat you or ur wife/ sister/mother have delivered a child, d next thing they ask is, BOY or GIRL???.  I highlighted the word 'naturally' (above) cos i 've  noticed we are all guilty of dis;   *coughs* abeg stop looking behind u jare, its you i'm talking to, or u wan talk say u neva ask b4?? :) 

i dont kno how it started or if its a general thing but i dont feel its proper, we hardly ask how d mother is faring, all we want 2 kno is obi'rin or oku'rin??. my colleague was so sure his wife was going to give birth to a boy, i asked him why he was so sure n if she had gone for scanning to check d sex of the child n he replied confidently, 'leave dat matter, i kno bcos na me put am dia' (aku'ko:)  so somehow i was hopeing/praying it wld be a girl *mischevious grin* weda him for deny am LOL  but the question remains, why do we......' i 've heard couples argue about who they want first, d woman go say na girl n d man go say na boy or vice versa *sigh*  i dont undastand it but i kno dat mine ll be 2 big boys psquare IJN :)

Congrats to blogville's latest mummy #youknoyasef and other mothers, may our children continue to put smiles on our faces (amen)

     Hv a blessed day'

PS: NITTY GRITTY shebi u asked for an update?? u've bn served :)

No' i am not Ibo, i'm Delta-Ibo


i heard a lady say on radio dis morning, n i said to dangote, 'Na so e dey take start', abi which one is delta ibo and original ibo again?  Look at wat is happening in cross river n some parts of Our country; when are we going to start seeing ourselves as one. Dis week, 13 containers of sophisticated arms and ammunitions was intercepted in Apapa port and pple are asking, who would want to carry out such dastardly act in nigeria. eyin temi, they r not ninjas o, they are humans (wat else can i call dem) like you and i, and yes na woman born dem, yet they wld see no qualms in taking another man's life *smh*  We've bn called terrorists in the past, WHAT will they call us now???  :(

talking of crossriver, i hv dis colleague in the office who bears a 'calabar' name,  d oda day i called her to come n see her Governor on tv; as soon as she saw it was godswill akpabio, she said in an icy tone, "Mbouk, i am not akwaibom o, i'm from cross river",   'Really, wats d difference?' i asked n she replied, "They have winch" (i kid not), 'Una nko, wetin una get?? i fired back, she just said "Mbuok" and walked away. LOL 

btw: Mbuok is not my real name o, it means PLEASE in calabar,  :)  
Moving along.....

so i visited ozaveshe's blog yesterday n saw condolence messages left there by some of us; i was touched but wondered what wld hv happened if ALL our comments needed the blog owner’s approval *sigh* dat means there would have been LOTS of messages awaiting His approval.

Some blogs have not been updated for more than 2yrs, it may be as a result of illness or worse, BUT they are still there unless someone else 'figures' the password and informs us; its much worse if the blogger went private' then How wld ANYONE know?????

When a blogger dies, in rare cases the family may know his/her blog's url and password, and decide to delete it or even leave it as a kind of remembrance But if they don’t know the url/password, the blog remains as it is; to be read by anyone until BLOGGER deletes it (which i dont tink is possible)

A 'Bloggers Register' wld have lots of advantages cos it wld help us keep tabs on ourselves, some might find it 'intrusive' and 'unnecessary' but who knows *sigh* Naijalines commented in my previous post dat If she expires, Ore (her son) is most likely to inform us; in as much as i wld dread reading dat or any post of that kind, its a FACT dat we can't blog forever..


*clears throat* Now to the main koko, below is a poll about the register; pls shine ya eyes n click on the appropriate button n lets take it 4rm there. Thanks  but remember 'One man -'One vote 


Wat do u tink of d 'Bloggers Register'
Great idea, lets give it a shot.


Not sure, some of 'us' still prefer being anonymous.



wetin consign me :)


















  
pollcode.com free polls

BEFORE I 4GET:  this is just a suggestion o, no book says i have to 'Organise and maintain the 'register', i think we'll hv to do another poll to nominate some 'tested /trusted' bloggers dat will pull it off, i on the oda hand will provide free entertainment; those in support say Aye!!:)



Njoy ur weekend!

...........A BLOGGER'S REGISTER?????

FOR LIFE??
I went on my blog rounds dis morn n read abt d death of one of our own its sad indeed. in my previous post i talked about the absence of some bloggers from blogville; i recall mentioning 50 of them but till date only four (4)  i.e ibiluv, afrobabe, temytayo and naughtyeyez hv responded, wat happened to the rest??? I also never knew ozaveshe until today tho i might hv stumbled on his blog in the past but i dont remember commenting on any of his posts (wish i had, cos  he sounded like a nice and FUNNY person) *sigh* May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss (ami

So i'm repeating the question, How can one kno all is well with a fellow blogger??. i know some of us have left 'blogger' for TWITTER (#youknoyasefs) while others might not hv anything to blog about (Afrobabe now refers to hersef as a Retired Blogger) na who do u sendoff??? *msheww* :)

Now theres d issue of anonymity, like i said some many of us cherish our cloak of mystery; i personally hv only spoken to one blogger since i started blogging n her name is #Standtall, so she can vouch dat  i'm real (as in i exist) n dat i'm a woman (from my voice) i tink she also knos my real name (standy no talk o :) tho we hvnt spoken in a longgggg time (when she start her waka-waka no pay travel) even dangote asks about her and fba from the stories i used to tell him abt our blogville.  i've never seen her but insha allah we go jam face to face on her or my child's iko-omo (naming ceremony) if she n hubby no se'kia (hurry up)

There are still lots of bloggers out there  i wld lv to talk to (or 'flash' and be 'flashed' in return) so wat do guys tink abt a Register????? sounds very primary school'ish abi? LOL i kno but how else can one kno. What do u think??????.



ps1: FBA' where r u??? :(((
ps2: wat happened to 9ja bloggers- reunion?  tot it was supposed to be like annually... not dat i wld show up tho  *wide grin*
ps3: somehow' somehow i dont feel like losing my anonymity too; o well :)

neways i heard He has being released; there's sumn strange about d sms  tho,  its sounds very incriminating but mumuish, i dont kno sha o;  a lot has bn said, is being said n ll be said But dis time i hope/ pray the culprits or Demons according to GEJ will be xposed n brought to book  (ami).

still praying for nigeria, dont kno wat 2011 holds for all of us; currently watching 'focus nigeria' with gbenga n he is interviewing some ex militants (they refer to dem selves as Generals)  n they r saying dat its not Mend, dat Mend have dia-armed' claiming the whole thing has a political undertone but God knows n sees All. it is well

Ehen' so bags of rice and wrapper  was shared in abuja last wk and yours truly was not given, I DEY VEX!!  but i hear say e no easy  na understatement, sum pple carry 2, some 5, some  very strong boiz even caryy reach 10 bags ' come dey re-sell am at cheapay amount *hiss*  i kukuma no go, but our cleaner dat went came back with lots of bruises and no rice *sigh* omotee how far, were u there???? *dodges blow* :)

PRESIDENTIAL HANDSHAKE!

Dats wat my customer traveled to ‘eagle square’ to get on Saturday sept 18 2010.  He locked his shop, gave his boys (apprentice) d day off, packed his fam in his golf n off they went to support jonathan/sambo. Met him by 7.30 pm (I rily needed to get dat wheel spanner) and jokingly asked him, how much Wat they gave him,  he replied…….. Presidential handshake; yesso he shook hands with Mr President; I don’t kno if its true sha' cos I didn’t see him anywhere near Gudluck b4 NEPA took light,  Did u see him??????  *grins*

I saw dbanj tho (was he paid?? e'lo?????? :p) heard Ali baba’s voice, saw many razz governors (xcept gov. saraki) jumping on stage, pledging/swearing dia support for jonathan; also saw  the Bruce brothers, Onyeka and somebody call my name…… showkey, didn’t see any nollywood actor sha. Was oshiomole there????? (don’t tink so too, but I bet he was watching on tv, lol)

Wondered wat IBB was doing dat day, Atiku nko??? Has he been cleared to contest??? Someone told me dat, Saraki, Dele-momodu n even our Ribadu had announced dia intentions to contest the presidential election. Read dat former aspirants like chris okotie and pat utomi are re-contesting n also ‘Sarah jubril’,  She is the 1st and only woman to aim for the presidency, Dis will be her 2 0r 3rd attempt sha; WOMEN she nids our support o, lol

Newayz the die is cast in PDP, cos its obviously Jonathan or IBB, so who ll it be??????? Oct 23rd will tell but b4 then**coughs**  ***coughs****

So, i was watching IBB's declaration on AIT, n saw one chick like dat with him, She was even standing on his right during his speech (who she be????)  lady or daughter???? (i just dey ask o :)

My joy is dat, there wasnt any casualty in the 2 rallies, and i pray/hope there wont be any in all the 67 presidential declaration rallies IJN (yesso 67 registered political parties ...no be small sumthing)

ps: voters registration  Nov 1st - 14th...... e go work???

mber months, sim-card registration n oda stories

like play'  like joke, 2010 is gradually coming to an end, 3 more months before 2011;  eyin temi, how una dey? its bn raining since last wk, cant wait for the sallah break o jare, enuf sleep and MEAT (ibiluv, mizcynic, n odas make una no dissappoint o, my e-mail hasnt changed, lol)  

The mber-months are finally here n na so eyes just dey chook;  pls be xtra careful and  security conscious; scammers, gbomo-gbomo(s) and one-chance are seriously on d prowl with new tactics, a colleague almost fell for dem, abeg make una shine una eyes o. May God protect us.

Talking of scammers, how una see dis  sim card -registration thing, is it Wise?? i mean' giving out all dos information about ursef to sumone you dont kno, i hv like  5 different lines (2 phones tho) n i'm xpected to register all of dem?? with all my contact information (n even pose for a snap shot) i still dont kno where it ll end up and who it ll end up with,  even the guys doing the reg, who sabi where n how dem pick dem  as in who r they working for  and how genuine r they *sigh*  i'm yet to register any of my lines sha, they say its for my own gud o but? (dont kno if it has a deadline sha, Have you registered urs??)

NO JONATHAN, DONT CONTEST!

HaBa!! d wahala don 2 much jare, everywhere na so so poster, 'support jonathan gudluck', 'gudluck 2011', 'jonathan support group',  'jonathan support rally'  and so on and so on, OGINNI??? if jona finally declare, contest n no win nko?? wetin go happen?  i say wetin go happen?? ECLIPSE???? d oda day it was 'Nig artistes for gudluck jonathan' asking him to contest say dem dey him back  (i still remember sum of dem saying same to soludo), now its the Nig chapter of the africa women in diaspora (OAWDN) threatening to go on sex strike if He doesn't declare his ambition to run for d 2011 presidential election by august 27, 2010'  see me see gbege o, wetin consign jona and una kini?? eniway i no believe dem sha, na STUNT! lol


BUT seriously,  kini big deal about jonathan contesting; 2mrw marks his 100 days in office n according to my scorecard  *shake head*  e get as e be, although 100 days is not enuf to perform the miracle(s) our country obviously needs, but the pressure for him to contest is sumn else (me sef don begin dey fear small) from the political killings to death threats, N87.7 billion for voters register to constitution amendment/re amendment, zoning to fake obituary death announcements abt OBJ to IBB recontesting, abi how una see am?


My message to Gudluck Ebere Azikiwe Jonathan is  'SHINE YA EYEZZZZZZZZZ!!'
it is well with Nigeria. 


Me i love my country, 
i love am pass egusi
everything e dey for nigeria,
make we join hands to make nigeria better.
