Another rainy day....


I swear i am at my most unproductive in the rainy season. Its really dark here and its threatening to pour. Not just drizzle lightly but its going to come down and i find myself smiling and sighing deeply. And i catch myself thinking about the weirdest things:
  • How do you measure a woman's worth? Is it really wrong of me to be so judgemental about a lot of these near naked women that are parading the streets of Lagos now all in the name of fashion? Is it wrong for me to somehow believe that they are debasing and de-valuing themselves and womanhood by letting every single thing show? Sexy and sensual i understand but i am truly disturbed by this new trend..
  • As liberal and open as i am, i am still very much a traditional woman
  • Listening to Heather Headley's In my Mind and reminding myself of how much i like her voice
  • I want to be at home right now
  • Foot massage - who shall i convince to rub my feet?
  • What shall i do for my birthday?
  • *Sigh*
  • Love letters on victorian style stationary
  • My trousers are quite long - or am i really short?
  • OOOOH - Lyfe Jennings just came on singing Must be Nice and i want to sing out loud
  • I think its time to braid my hair again
  • Bring on the rain - more and more rain
  • I think i need help. I have a meeting in 10 mins but i think they will get stuck in traffic but that's not an excuse. Shouldnt i have printed out the MOU and stuff?
  • I am pretty
  • My phone hasnt rung all day. Is it working?

I need to stop this foolishness and try and get some work done. Help me!

christ.. i was just singing along to heather headleys in my mind with my girls last weekend on our way to a party and we just thought this is one of the sexiest sort of subtle stalkerish anthems we know...

cant wait to come to lagos and see this for myself oh.. cos apparently the naija i left is not the same as the one i'll be coming back to...

my legs are long and i wear 'long heels' so my legs just look so much longerrr when i wear long trousers(lol... enough longs in that sentence?) i dont like braiding my hair at all(i mean single braids... i do that like once in 2 years)... i'm a weave kinda girl.. well mostly i do a weave in the back and single braids in the front... but thats the extent of my patience.. i mean when you have a big head like man.. you cant be sitting on ur ass allday especially not if you'd want to braids really tiny... lol(i just called myself a big head.. dang!)

In a complete aside, your comment about needing a foot massage reminds me about the Eddie Murphy film Boomerang (strange how the mind works) where Eddie's xter seemed to have a foot fetish.

Anyway, don't you find a foot massage a very intimate thing? Only to be shared with a significant other?

i feel the same about the issue of some women's decorum or lack of it.
i believe, those gals have being deceived to think prancing about half naked is sexy and fashionable/trendy ironically the men they're trying to hook see it as "hawking their wares" there's mucha diff between sexy and slutty.
anyhow,enjoy the rain and get some work done o
