Hello TInseltown

I decided to put this blog out to pasture and whine about tinsel and everything Nigerian tv on a new blog. The things I have To say just don't fit here. So this is bye.

TV Guide

So everyday something silly happens or I come across something weird and think I should blog about that,but I never do. It just feels like so much wahala to actually turn on the laptop. Unfortunately I find I almost always think that when I see nonsense on TV. I think i watch way too much tv, even my father-in-law yabbed me last weekend that I seemed to be watching much more of the nickelodeon than my son, just because I was singing the Power Rangers theme song(ok, I am ashamed of myself) But please who else is watching Tinsel with me o? While most of the characters have always been a bit.. too much, Salewe I don't get. And the fine smallie 'they' are wasting on her. hmmm. It's sad that for a Nigerian show the best actor is Ghanaian. I like Gideon too,although his wardrobe like most things in Tinsel does not match his status.

Nigerian girl raped on video

Frank played truant from work today to take me go kart racing. Driving is the only time I listen to the radio and I came across a lady talking and crying on a radio station, I didn't know what the topic was but her choice of words made me think rape. She was talking about being a mother and how she hoped the boys would be brought to justice. Anyway I got home, and with some words on google found links to a video of a young girl being raped by 5 guys. No I do not have a link, I didn't even want to watch it. Blogs like Linda Ikeji's had a lot of information and featured the angry comments of disgusted and disillusioned Nigerians afraid that nothing will come of the digital cry out and the prerequisite idiots who wonder aloud what the girl did to the guys before she was raped. hmmm.. Sad. Right now the only hope i have about this case is from the woman on the radio saying (honorable) Abike Dabiri and Funmi Iyanda have decided to look into the matter because the truth is the men will not. The rape allegedly took place in ABSU(Abia State University, Uturu) and the vice chancellor's statement is that there is no way this happened in his school. It doesn't matter where this happened, rape and beastiality is not just a Nigerian thing, humans are cruel everywhere. It's also sad that the boys one of whom is a fourth year law student, felt confident enough to video their actions in THESE times and let it get viral. I hope their stupidity takes a big chunk of their asses.

Where do I even start. It's been for ever.
But I've decided to come back to blogging. its been.. definitively more than a minute.
Things have changed since my last posts.
I've moved back to Nigeria and now have two kids, so definitely see life from a different perspective. and er.. no. just because I have kids now doesn't make this a mummy blog. I do not intend to tell you how lovely my children are(the lovliest) or how my son said the cutest thing the other day(he really did)or about the cutest pink and brown baby shoes my daughter wore last Saturday.(I swear they were the cutest.)

So why am I back?
I read a couple of my old posts,it was funny remembering where I was at different points in my life and I figured it would be a good idea to have somewhere I can go a-ranting again. It would be nice to have somewhere where I can talk to other people about Louis Theroux's 'Law and Disorder' in Lagos or bitch about Asa's new sellout videos.
So i'm back for real this time and will try to post regularly

rio carnival

and now- the good stuff

just found out one of these chics hopes to set a record for plastic surgeries dancing before thundering drummers in a tribute to the first wave of Japanese immigration to Brazil 100 years ago. I don't think it's this one though.

The 36-year-old star Angela Bismarchi — who had her eyelids surgically altered to look Asian. Wearing little more than silver body paint and black feathered wings, underwent her 42nd cosmetic surgery last week, as she closes in on the Guinness World Record of 47 procedures, held by an American.

Femme says Well done! More grease to all your body parts.

because we dont mind other points of views.

rio carnival in santa teresa and botafogo, Nigeria vs. Ghana and...

So Afrobabe has been on my case- its not like i have forgotton blogosphere, i was tagged to do the 7 weired things post by Nneoma and gueirre.... i started but cant think of any more.

carnival started yesterday. finally brasilians are winning me over. its just one big party. imagine the whole of lagos in a drunken haze, dancing on the streets , wierd costumes, and believe me i have seen enough breasts on display to make babies understand those things make adults happy too.

this isnt the main carnival o, just a street party.

a woman was throwing down biscuits and chocolates to the delighted crowd

thats me. i and frank lagging behind with his friends ahead and you bet your ass he is wearing a t. shirt. it was a long walk down santa terésa which is on a hill.

so 7 wierd things about me( i stopped at 3 though)

  1. for a nigerian, i always think about the negatives first. you know how people dont want to think of bad things, or say 'God forbid' first as if that cancells it out? i dont understand this. like once i was like -'' dady u need to take a new portrait picture because when u die we need to have a picture of u to use for the funeral.

  2. i have a thing for bad smells. i always want to know where they come from. Sorry but i wont elaborate.

  3. my other thing is finger nails. im very vain about my nails. i really have nice nails(not the clawy type), just really nice french manicure-ish nails. i think my emotions are connected to my nails, if i break a nail, i wonder whats wrong in my life? as i child, i used to make other children line up and i'd clean thier nails. I HATE DIRTY NAILS. Now i only have frank's nails to clean( we have agreed i cant do it in public any more, no matter how much it irks me.)

I am about to post this but the Nigeria - Ghana match has started. we know we are @#$% ups but who knows?

Yesterday was Iyemanja's day too and like one or two people noted, true true na mammy water. i wanted to see the ceremony but we couldnt get back to copacabana beach in time.

Its my birthday tomorrow so yay!!

just remebered one more wierd thing.

4. I poo poo only once a week.

thats a nice way to end the post i think.

Afrobabe- hope you are happy now ?
