LETS RANDOM


Yea, i know lol

My brother in-law made that. Future husband please take note. Thank you lol (a girl can dream right)
So 5weeks of sleep was bliss (did I just rhyme? ok now) I read a lot of books and saw lots of movies (before nko). I almost didn’t forgive my bil for making me watch “Sucker Punch”, but the image of his culinary skills melted my beef. It didn’t help that I saw “I do, I did” and “500 days of Summer” on the same night. To think I didn't sleep until 4am just because of these terrible movies and do you know what was worse? I could not rant at anyone because everyone else was sleeping! Something I should have been doing myself. That morning, my 1 year old niece promptly woke me up at 6am.

Angel: (do not let the pet name fool you, that child is totally mini-me) Antoin (that’s me in case you’re wondering), wake up. Shand up. Open e door. Leggo oushide.

And I dare not go back to the room to sleep. SMH. Things we do for love. I actually enjoyed playing ‘mommy’ to my nieces although they are such a handful. I totally understand the reason Prim-Not is slim. I miss them so much already. By the way, I had no idea kids consumed that much tea. Darn!

So i started my reading with An Echo in the Darkness by Francine Rivers. That was my Xmas present to me. Someone gave me A Voice in the Wind and I desperately wanted to know what happened to Hadassah. The big book of Ifs 123 by Evelyn McFarlane & James Saywell is another amazing and thought provoking book that I came across. The book made me THINK. I’m going to be asking some questions from that book and I hope you can honestly answer them.

I am currently on Jackie Collins’ Poor Little Bitch Girl. I loved the Santangelo series but I hadn’t read Jackie in ages. This brings me to the story of one of my new found friends. He saw me with the book and mentioned that he had not read novels in over a decade. We were chatting much later about the wonder of books and he sent me this:
O_O James Hardley Chase? Romance? Ok o
In a totally unrelated matter, is it weird that I’m following Kola Boof on twitter? Prim seems to think i’m crazy *shrugs*


I found this amazing card that Prim gave me when I was like 8 or 9. I absolutely love it. I laughed soo hard and almost peed my pants. I remember she always bought me something for my birthday. Always. She always took her “big sister” duties seriously. She wrote: From Big Sister To Little Toin :-)
From Big Siser
So cute. I love Prim but this Toin aint so little anymore
And at the back of the card she wrote: 2good 2 4get = 8me not lmao
I was going to post the following as my favourite holiday song but it skipped my mind in December but I’m going to share anyway.

Went to the store, sat on Santa's laps
Asked him to bring my friends all kinds of crap
He said all you need is to write them a song
You haven't heard it yet so don't try to sing along
Don't sing along

Monica Monica, have a happy Hannuka
Saw Santa Clause, he said hello to Ross
& please tell Joey, xmas will be snowy
Rachel & Chandler...@@#$U@&*$&%@*&&(Y$Y&T$^@

Happy holidays everybody (This song was done by Phoebe in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Yu gotta love Phoebe)

I’ll be back.

  3. Seriously random things :-D. That card esp Prim's handwritten note is really cute. James Hardely Chase novels had some form of romance in it if i remember correctly *scratching my head*. :-).. I also love the Hadassah Series. Francine is an amazing writer.

    1. Thanx luv. Tot the card was cute too and to think she's just a few years older. the "big sis" and "lil toin" keeps cracking me up

      Chase is not about romance jor. It's like saying you watch James Bond cos you like Romance. Chase was all about action. I'm guessing the guy never read any. He probably judged the book by the cover literally. There was usually a sexy girl in lingerie holding a gun on the cover

    2. U knw as much as I liked reading,I never read any hardley chase because I judged the poor books by their cover...itwaz recently someone told me it wasn't a romantic collection but action. Ofcourse ma mouth made a perfect O in surprise.

  16. Aww, cute card. I haven't read a Jackie Collins since I was in secondary school. Wow, she still writes?? Is the Francine Rivers book good? How do you like it? I've only read one of her books - Redeeming Love, which is absolutely one of the best books I have ever read, possibly top 2 even, if I think about it.

    1. Jackie is same ol. Kinda predictable tho:-) Francine is gooooood! The book was set in the period after the death of Jesus but you can soo relate. You'll love it. I need to look for Redeeming Love

  17. Oh my goodness! The first thing you hit me with was Amala and Ewedu WITH Gbegiri ... Why, oh why?! Future husband better take note! I literally burst out laughing at "Leggo Oushide." I have never read James Hardley Chase, so I can't comment on your friend's blunder, but men, you have been busy with all that reading. And the card? You've kept that since you were 8? Talk about archives! 8me not? Laughing in pidgin ...

    James Hadley Chase..emotionally exhausting? get me outta here! the guy don fall him own hand.

    p.s. Glad to find someone else who thinks 500 days of summer was crappy. You wouldnt thinkso if you read the reviews.

    1. 500 days of summer, I hate that movie. I almost even punched somebody after I watched it sef, cos the person thought I was being unnecessarily.....*****.... for not liking it. She thought it was a good and romantic movie.....
      I am even barfing a little thinking about it!
      I couldnt even understand what they were trying to glorify (summer's character). And that last scene with the Autumn girl? It did it for me...I was ready to hunt down the director and give him a slap for good measure.....what stupid cheesiness?!!!!


      Wooosah, HoneyDame, Woosah!

      Delete
    2. @Ginger, ah, someone finally gets my Chase-guy's goof. The guy no try at all.

      @Honey, i totally felt the same or worse sef. The most irritating thing was i couldn't really fast forward cos of the "day 1/day 200" thing. That Autumn thing was truly cheesy. As for hunting down the director, i really wanted to do that after watching "i do, i did"

  26. Its so cute how Prim put extra efforts in writing those short forms!

  27. The card is so cute :)
    And I remember that amala on twitter, so it was even your bro in law? Sigh HE needs to top all of that, he better come fast o so he can start brushing up the part he needs to :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I honestly cannot tell what kind of dish that is in the picture. Looks like a sandwich of some sort?

    Hahahaha @ I could not rant at anyone because everyone else was sleeping!

    Jackie Collins is one paid white woman when it comes to novels. I've never read any of her books but judging from the enormous amount of book sales over the years I can tell that she is PAID.

    ReplyDelete
  29. First of all, a guy cooked that? Jeez, I need me one of those...What???!!!
    That's sexy in a guy oooo... the food looks to-die-for...talk about a neat package of a man..lol

    Plus the images up there are hilarious...Good stuff!!!

    Oh yeah, you gotta love Phoebe...Ahem..*singing in my tone-deaf voice* ''Christmas will be snooooowwwwwyyyyyyyy...Nooo don't sing along'' Lol
