#30day Writing Challenge

Okay, I know. I know. Just bear with me. So Cherrywine tagged me in a tweet about this 30day writing challenge by a writer Nicole Blades. Nicole Blades suggests writing for 30 minutes non-stop without editing. It's about commitment and consistency. For those who need it, she will tweet out a 1-word prompt every morning on Twitter and you can write your hearts out. I'm not sure about doing Twitter every morning for the word prompt so I might be using another prompt for mine. I found this on google which i think could be useful too so....

I don't know how this would go yet but lets see. I don't want to overthink it so I won't find an excuse not to do it.

So all ye runaway blogger can join in too. I know I'm starting late but here we go

I'll be back

P.S: Are y'all reading Atilola's Journey to Marriage series? You aren't? Oh, you really should.

So this is going to be a very random post. I know I owe you big, but let me just do this for now, okay? Thank you.
Peek-a-boo :D
So have y'all heard? Single Nigerian is now a Married Nigerian!! And yep, we turnt up!!!! It felt so cool and weird, like I was giving my brother out to my sister (Don't ask. I know it sounds incestuous, but leave it yeah). To think I was sorta kinda there when it started :D Love still exists people. I even found me a cute puppy at the wedding lool. I gave the toast and totally disgraced myself. Again, don't ask. So here's wishing my Friends like family/blood a fantastic married life.

So y'all remember my lover from the "love found me" post? Yeah, I saw him again. I went shopping with a friend at a mall and was waiting in the car when I noticed some guy just leaving the mall with shopping bags. He was staring at me. Each time we had eye contact, I'll notice the guy staring. So I smiled awkwardly in that "guy you're staring" way (because I figured I looked familiar or something). That was how he went "Toooiiiinnn"

I was so shocked because for the life of me, I could not remember who he was. He then went "oh, you don't remember me. How will you? When you no longer pick my calls"

I have to confess here that I'm really bad with calls. I know. I know. My mom raised me better, but please manage me. I'm working on it.

Anyway, I apologised and asked again where we met and that was when he mentioned his name. William McCrazy. Of course! He had grown a beard, probably trying some #BeardGang stizz. After realisation dawned, I legit told him "Ah, yooouuuuuu! Of course I won't pick your calls"
I was with a friend who reads my blog (so he already knew about the guy) and that one just started laughing. I had to harass the McCrazy like guy, why did you do me like that? McCrazy had the guts to tell me it was "love". Please no. Keep your something. I don't want that kind of love, thank you.

He called much later, I didn't pick then he sent an SMS saying he was just checking up. Yeah, thanks, but no thanks.

So y'all know John Legend is my bae right? Well, I found another bae and it's Chrissy Teigan. Bring on the threesome! Whooop! I know, I know. I beef her yada yada but you know how there's a thin line between love and hate, well, that line got obliterated in our case. I truly and madly love her. You can blame Lip Sync Battle for this love. And it does help that she has nice breasticles you know. Y'all know breasticles make me happy, doncha? Wait, you didn't? Oh well, now you do *batts lashes*
My new loverrrr
So Happy new year! (dodges shoe)
I think the Igbo's have a saying about the time a person wakes up being the person's morning or something like that so yea, happy new year. Please don't bite me.

The show of love I get on this blog is unreal. This week, I have been badgered from so many angles to blog, it's crazy. Rockstar, you know you're first on the list. This lady begged, cajoled, threatened and darn near dragged me by my chicken hair  (I kid, I kid, but she's mean when she wants to be). Girl, I'm sorry and I promise to try to do better. Luanna, Duru, This Lagos girl, Sykik, Rhapsody, Kelsey, oh, the list is long.

I won't promise to be regular but I can promise that I'll always be back as long as I'm breathing.  I miss this space and I super duper miss you guys. Love you guys.

P.S: Beautiful, did you post something? Cos I saw your new post, rushed to read, but you apparently took it down. Stop teasing girl and come back.
P.P.S: A lot about my life is changing I think, but a lot is remaining same too. I don't know if that made sense.
P.P.P.S: I took a month-long vacation last month, so I don't have any leave days left. Cry with me :(
P.P.P.P.S: That month-long vacation did wonders for my body o! Goodness, several parts of my anatomy have increased and lets just say "Amen" for me. Sykik, I might be leaving you in the club soon mama.

So I'm back, I'm here, I'm taking over. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I'm as clean as ever...
These are not my nieces but they could be. If only twins stayed this way. But no, they'll destroy your stuff and talk back. Sigh
I just went back a couple of decades with that song. My old-age is showing; let me tuck it in properly. So how have you all been. I didn't want to leave 2015 without posting something this December so let's see, who shall I blog about....

So, let me gist you about my twin nieces; Tim and Kim. Those girls are 4 going on 30! Double Trouble is what I call them. They are way too smart and sassy but I love them. I have another one who has been re-named Benadryl by HoneyDame (don't ask!) who climbs everything with such passion. I would share pictures but my brother would kill me so I'll save them for now. I might share later though.

This could easily be Benadryl
Or this
So back to the twins. I think they should get a reality show of their own. Things those kids say make me go O_O.

Chronicles of Prim and her twin daughters
Take One
Tim: Mummy I want pissa (pizza), I want pissa, I want pissa (in a whining voice)
Prim: Tim, if you say that one more time I'll park this car and come round and flog you.

30seconds later
Kim: Mummy, what "park" mean?
Prim: It means I'll stop the car
Kim: Right here mummy? and then we stay here? forever and ever? on the roadside?
Prim: (in my head) girl shut up. I'm trying to instill discipline here

Take Two 
Prim: Bo aso e Kim, what does that mean Kim?
Kim: Hum remove your clothes
Prim: Wow how did you know that?
Kim: By thinking

Take Three
Tim: (crying) mummy I bit my tongue
Prim: Sorry baby, how did that happen
Tim: I used my teeth

Take Four
Kim: I want bread and butter to take to school for lunch
Prim: Do your class mates bring bread and butter to school?
Kim: No
Prim: No, you can't take bread and butter to school
Kim: But Mommy, nobody brings dodo too (like, what's your point mommy)

Kim is the ultimate Diva. All she wants now is to be 5years old. She thinks 5 means adulthood. She tells Tim all the time that if she doesn't eat well, she'll stay 4 looool.

So when I say I don't want twins, I know what I'm saying. I'd rather one trouble at a time. Double trouble ain't my thing.

Kids have been so irresistible to me lately though. I just love their innocence. Too adorable. My ovaries have been jumping upandan anyhow but all I need to calm them is to remember something my nieces say or do and I'm all fixed lol.

Hope you guys are preparing for an amazing Xmas. I have no plans yet so if you don't mind feeding me on Christmas, holler!

It has been a really long year but I'll be back soon :)

Let's Marvin Gaye and get it on...

You've got the healing that i want. Just like they say it in the song, till the dawn, lets Marvin Gaye and get it on ...

This Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth feat. Meghan Trainor song has been giving me life. I just loveeet! So how have you all been. I'm fine. Life is happening as usual. More drama everyday; sometimes more than I can handle but er well. We already know drama follows me around so no biggie. I'm not sharing the latest episode in the series of my life that I have titled, Dear Lord, Why Me? Y'all not ready for it. (Honeydame, CoyIntrovert and SingleNigerian, please leave this one alone)

Nails on fleek :D
First things first, my nails are back!!! You think we're here to play? After everything I've been through this year, please I had to invoke all the powers that be to bless my nails and it happened.
When they ask if you got your nails fixed and it's all yours ...*moonwalks*

Second, are you people not honestly shopping on So you are and I have not earned anything through you? You people play too much. What do you think the banners up top and on the sides are for? Please click click click away and purchase. Use my link and make me some money please. This your baby girl needs to feed to keep body and soul together. I'm not thirsting after glass house yet but a nice house would do. Atilola, come and try Konga so you can compare with Jumia. Thanks in advance. And If I eventually buy my own glass house, I'll give y'all a room each too. You might need to share though. Maybe Atoskin can share with HD and we'll name that the Room of Hips or Hippy Room. See, even my joke is dry. This is not a joking stuvvv. Epp me plis. Epp me. I'm suvvring.

I guess we can all agree that I'm not dead. *Side eyes* TLG and Honeydame. My life is just going through some changes. You can follow @toinlicious for more of my deliciousness.

So to the real reason I'm back here. The wonderful Lola of Rose of Sharon tagged me in this Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award and I had to come out of hibernation. Thanks so much Lola. Lola is the lovely author of Twenty Nine. You can check out her other books on Okadabooks.

4.                  Nominate five blogs; Okay
5.                  Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer. Alright

1. What is your biggest pet peeve? I honestly don't know, it depends on where, when, who, what and how. I have a long list. From people who drive slow on the fast lane, to people who stay on your lane and refuse to move when the traffic light goes green because they are not exactly going your way but stupidly blocks you, to those who pick their nose and flick it. Biggest though? I don't know. If I like you, some of these things might not even bother me except that snot flick.

2. What does your last text message say? MO: Why were you calling me at 6:58am?

3. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and coke? Which do you prefer? I can't tell the difference and give me water. I can't believe my relationship with berryblast is over and I'm not even sad. What is this life? A rotten pot of beans I tell you.

4. Make a confession about anything.  There is this 22million naira house that I'm thirsting after. I need money!!!

5. Name one item on your bucket list. To live alone in another country

6. If you were another person, would you make friends with yourself? Hell yeah! Have you met me? You obviously haven't because if you have, you'll definitely know. I'm amazing. I know my vain is showing but I'm not tucking it in. I'm that fabulous and cute and nice and my heart? Too large for its own good. Let's not forget my smile too.

7. What is your secret weapon to lure the oppoiste sex, boyfriend, husband, potential? I'm not luring anybody abeg. Did you not read about My lover? I didn't even have to do nothing and he wanted to die on top the matter.

8. What do you want to know about the future? Did I eventually kill my brother or did he kill me? I need to know this. Oh wait, or what colour did I paint my 22milion naira house :D

9. What would you change about your experience in secondary school? Honestly, nothing. I had the best and most unserious time of my life there lol. Traumatising for my family especially my dad and my sister, Prim-not though, seeing as Prim-not was the model daughter hehehe

10. Scary movies or happy endings? Happy endings. I'm a sucker for them

I'm nominating:
This Lagos Girl (see, i told you i wasn't dead)
Lara (Can you put me in your luggage and take me traveling with you? I don't weigh much)
Atilola (All in good time babe, all in good time)
Duru  (I know the award is for sisters but this boy is around ladies all the time so *shrug*)
