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