Blogville IDOLS + Update

BLOGVILLE R U READY?
BLOGVILLE IDOLS COMING SOON


check pink-satin's blog or 9jaopeke's blog for more details. Also, the blogville idols website is here.

TO people who found my raw-pepper eating habits that i talked about in the last post funny / weird, you guys never jam! it is sweet, and it is very healthy! thank u LB, i was starting to feel like the only weirdo here who ate raw red pepper.
Meanwhile you guys know the wristwatch i said i got as BOGOF, when I went to buy my mum her birthday present, after I put the post up, like some 30 minutes after, me still rawking my wristwatch walked past my mother and the following conversation ensued:

Mama Mimi: Mimi, come here
Mimi: Mother, wetin?
Mama Mimi: I said come closer
Mimi: (seeing her eyes on my hand thinking oh men) mummy what now?
Mama Mimi: Let me see your wrist watch
Mimi: Why now?
Mama Mimi: I like it ni
Mimi: Mummy how can you like this funky wristwatch. I bought you a classy one and I purposely picked out this one for myself with the hope that it will be too funky for you
Mama Mimi: its not funky at all o. In fact I prefer it to the one you gave me yesterday. remove it, let me see
Mimi: grumbling, I remove it and hand it over
Mama Mimi: (wears it) it is fine o. see
Mimi: mummy it was on my hand, I saw it. In fact i saw it thats why I picked it for myself!
Mama Mimi: I like this one now, I like it a lot o.
Mimi : still grumbling, ok you can have it
Mama Mimi: ehn?????! are you serious? (like that wasnt what she was aiming for before)
Mimi: Yes!
Mama Mimi: Ose my dear. thats two wristwatches for my birthday. Thank you. I like it. See how fine it is?

I just turned round and walked in the other direction. She really didnt have to rub it in my face, did she?


Meanwhile I met one human on the bus today. Some men approach women like interviews. Thats how I got on a bus on my way to work. I got to the upper deck and sat down. This guy started to stare with his mouth wide open. After a few seconds the guy came over and introduced himself o.

'My name is XXXX, I work for XXXX and I have a BSc in marketing , I graduated from University of Lagos but I am now doing my masters at XXXX in International somethin somethin somethin'

All this while , I had my mp3 player in my ear. The guy didn't even care that I wasn't paying attention. He just continued to talk. I am serious if I was looking to hire someone for a job, I will hire him because he was just marketing himself!!

'I am from a family of.... My parents are in ..... my siblings are all here in the UK and we're all independent. I'm a very busy man. I dont have time for rubbish and I dont do fraud, in essence what I am trying to say is, I have the means to take care of you'

Wow! this man was proper telling me history. I wanted to laugh but I couldnt. Some other people were looking like is this guy serious. lol. It was funny. The way and rate at which he was spilling out info without me uttering anything ... It just got me wondering how guys approach women differently. Anyway gist for another day. Hows everyone? Check out the blogville idols thing.


L8RZ,

LOL! Your mum knows what is good, she has great taste! I can feel your pain though. For me, if it is not my mum, then it is my sisters or my cousins eyeing my stuff...

LOL at the random dude spelling out his CV for you on a bus! What was he thinking?

Oh BTW, I eat raw pepper too: it is yummy in salads and wraps...
