since i've been gone

Blog readers forgive me, its been 46 days …Wow 46!!! Yeah 46 days since my last post… I could blame it on the fact that I have been engrossed in this whirlwind romance with this billionaire’s son who is half Vietnamese and half Zimbabwean…with curly brown hair and a tattoo that reads ‘rebel without a cause’ on his neck and who loves to stay in bed all day with me eating grapes while we watch seinfield or the fact that I have been in some 3rd world country building houses in their villages with no access to the internet…..but those will be lies and all liars go to hell….so why don’t I just tell yall the truth … the truth is..well i have no excuse…. Er well maybe I have… u see a lot of people read my blog now..well a lot of people have always read my blog but right now its more than usual *cough* twitter folks*cough* and I used to write a lot of personal stuff before…so u see…. Too many people reading ur shit and u r not anonymous..it can cause all kinds of quanta… there is also the pressure to be funny.. I know I am humourous and shit but I am not ur personal clown or court jester…don’t expect me to make u laugh everytime, sometimes I just wanna blog about my day or something serious. Most readers think blogging is a competition… no siree… “oh dis blog is sweeter, has more comments…” all well and good… but blogging to me is just letting everything I have inside …letting it all out… you don’t have to approve it…its different things to different people though. Of course I give it my humourous spin every now and then….so I have made up my mind to blog whatever, even if its not funny…the people who will read will read and that is fine by me…plus I miss writing…..
So no, I haven’t been gallivanting with some rich arrogant sod with a sixpack and curly brown hair neither have I been “Angelina-joleing“ it somewhere in Africa.. I've just been sitting home, couch potatoe mode, waiting to start a new job…Yeah I left my old job…for reasons best known to me…I just thought hey! Its time to move on….its all about moving on and moving up isn’t it? It was a fab year and a half….So … MTV was absolutely amazing…the people were fab…lotsa experiences, learnt a lot…..there was always food..always!!!!….and laughter and sarcasm and wit…and all those other good amazing stuff…. A wonderful wonderful experience I must say.
So while I wait to start my new job I am basically jobless..living with my oh so annoying brother…basically I am the housegirl I just don know it yet… it did hit me though that day I was mopping and singing slave songs…I think I tweeted about it… iv been cooking meals I didn’t even know I had in me, like shouldn’t I be saving all my kitchen skills for the ever elusive “one”.... my brother should go and marry jare… but alas I am his slave and I do whatever he wants lest I find my bag and “baggages” outside the gate when I come back from an outing in a ragolis carton…oh the horror!
So yeah its basically sitting home, tweeting my life away, watching series after series and wolfing down snack after snack..i really need to go on a diet or something…the devil’s been doing the dougie in my mind…giving me some very unbloggable ideas….. “no I will not catch a rat and roast it over the fire to quell my boredom” …u see every now and then I have to say things like to that to myself so I don’t fall into the devil’s trap…. “no I wont masturbate to a picture of the rock” ….”no I wont dress up like a dude and sing yippie yayoo yippee yayee wanna rock ur body baby…in front of the mirror”…..and no no no ”I wont tell the gateman to come and take pictures of me” ….sheesh the things the devil puts in my mind…… being idle is not fresh I must say.
So yeah what else has happened…hmmn I think I went on my first proper date *giggles like a school girl*….yeah! nothing really just a date….. ive been on dates before(or so I thought) horrible horrible dates, this one time the dude brought a chess board…on a friggin date…and many other horrible incidents that will not be blogged about….but this was just really erm different…. Oh yeah Cafelicious is an awesome place for a date by the way. No I wasn’t paid for that plug..hehe
So yeah we bonded over ice-cream, it took forever for the food to arrive though but that was because they were preparing it so its fresh and hot when u get it…but it just gave us time to talk and all….and boy did we talk… like I am a sucker anyday for someone with a sense of humour and a nice personality…id rather have that over looks…. U can look like Tyson beckford but if u have the personality of a cutting comb I don’t want none of that …..i wasn’t caught up with…..“oh he’s looking at my breasts, bloody pervert” ..even though he might have been hehe ….but there was just none of that "artificialness"….no awkward silence with me thinking “what am I gonna say now…omigosh he’ll think I am boring” …I just knew everything was going fine and we were enjoying each other’s company . It just flowed, wit ,sarcasm, a sense of humour and the meal….oh yeah the meal was like the cherry on top… on point actually… the atmosphere of Cafelicious is fab…we were on this long fluffy couch with throw pillows and they were playing soul music..like what’s better than that…. I had a nice date…my best yet and that’s all… amebos! Hehehehe

I'm not sure but I think this is the first time I'm actually reading a full post on your blog although I read the stuff you've done with my guys. I've gotta say I absolutely loved all you said...especially the issue of blogging. God knows there are days I just feel like saying wassup to peeps who read my blog and just tell them some of the myriad things going through my head. I've made a decision to, and it's really nice to see that someone else feels that way too...Good stuff Laide.

New job??

hey....where are we moving too!!!

Gee...I've been reading your stuff from zanga until now- (Zanga right?) Long before I knew what blogging was.

I know what you mean when your blog becomes "a blog to look out for/ celebrity blog" and you're expected to entertain your readers........but alas the real reason we blog always comes back to us.

I see you complaining about your numerous haters on twitter.....hehehe

Okeoghene said...

When you post you really do a good job it and I feel you on entertaining the people who read your work. All the same, blogging is not a competition* i like that*. All the best on your new job.
