Back and Depressed

I've been seriously depressed since 5.30pm yesterday, that was the exact time I landed in Abuja after almost a week in Lagos. This past one month I had been lying to myself that I was already used to Abuja but after just 4 days back home I came back a wreck and I've had to adjust all over again.I miss,miss, miss the bf, for my sake I think he's going to have to move to Abuja just so I can have some sanity. But for the sake of being called to bar next year i'm going to have to cop on to myself and adjust.

Too knackered to write a good long post so I just wanna say happy birthday to the almighty bf, the LOML and the HTIL. Love you mwahhhhh!!!!!

This weekend Abuja's p is going to be amped to the nth degree, chiefrocker's extraordinaire; the Okpaleke's are turning up the entertainment level with "Play Sports Bar & Grill". Fashi all dem places, Play, 167Adetokunbo Ademola crescent Wuse II is going to be the spot. Its opening this Friday and as a result of its general fabulousness the Mtv Africa Music Awards pre-party is going to be held there.

As well as the Nigerian Fashion Awards on Thursday and the MAMA's on Saturday, Abuja is going to be flossing this weekend. But this blogger is not going to be here to see it, courtesy of a lecture free week coinciding with the bf's birthday (yaaay), I'm off to Lagos for the weekend. Peace!

Solange Knowles is amaayyyzing! if you've been hiding under a rock and haven't heard 'Sandcastle Disco', her 2nd single of her album SoL-AngeL and the Hadley Street Dreams, go and hustle a copy now or since we dont have Nu-metro anymore, tell your cousin in yankee to send you one. Or better yet, download it off limewire, ares or bearshare. I don't care what you do, just get it. Beyonce who?

Faces of NLS

Who said its all work and no play where a group of soon-to-be barrister's are concerned. After a grueling introductory week, we all let our collective weaves down and proceeded to have a good piss up [they had a good piss up, i don't drink so the extent of my inebriation was fanta related]. Oh yeah and happy birthday Nnamdi.

p.s. still rocking my black bandage

LINUS 4th NOVEMBER 2008 - 4th NOVEMBER 2008

I've never really being a skin person, its just that brown stuff that covers my whole body and protects my internal organs and stuff, right? I have friends who can't even remember the last time they saw their dressing tables because of all their Elizabeth Arden this and Clinique that, miracle night repair, microdermabrasion, revitalift etc, name it, they've got it. Not me though, i'm surprisingly low maintenance when it comes to skin and have stuck faithfully to my Olay for donkey years and this isn't Olay for anything special mind you, its just regular Olay lotion, a baby could even use it [ unlike some lotions I know that if a baby even smelled it, the poor infant would just keel over and die]. I don't even use a cleanser, facial wash, I've been so blessed I never thought all that gloop was necessary until now.

My nightmare began very inauspiciously one morning, I was making my bed in school when I spotted something that made my blood curdle in my veins, it was dreadful, with malevolent markings, red and black warpaint, something which any QC boarder would recognize, papa aka skirt and blouse, aka electric ant and it was headed straight for me, i grabbed the nearest weapon I could find [unfortunately my November Harper's Bazaar] and attacked the monster, when I was done killing it, I spotted another one but too late, it was already making tracks for the door, presumably to spread the word about the murder. I had seen the last of it, I thought.

A few days later, I made my usual early morning dash to Bwari from Abuja and because I was in a hurry I forgot to shake out my shirt before wearing it. I want to digress a bit here, I'm not untidy, i'm actually an extremely fastidious person but Bwari is INFESTED. Martha freakin Stewart would have problems here. Its not even mosquitoes we're dealing with, if it were just that, Raid and a good strong mosquito net would suffice, but these are carnivorous insects, some of them the size of baby rats each with a different agenda and a liking for a different body part. Some are neck insects, some legs, you get my drift. Some dont even bite they're just looking for accomodation and are perfectly happy to share your bed, follow you to the bathroom, eat your food and I swear even make up with you [ i saw one with a suspiciously smooth face and I swear it was my MAC studio fix that did it]. Anyhoo back to the point, I wore my shirt, folded the sleeves a la Kanye West and reached up behind me to put my hair in a pony tail when I felt a curious tingling in the crook of my arm, but i discounted it. 15 minutes later, I was in class and was admiring the precise way my sleeves were folded and how I could give Kanye a run for his money when I noticed a red patch on the inside of my elbow, I thought I had scratched myself somehow and just fashied it, but 2 hours later it started to hurt, I still ignored it.

Cut to a day later and my arm looked like something out of Dr. Who, nobody had to tell me it was papa. Of course everybody had their remedies, from toothpaste, to GV to urine, even S had, had a similar run in with them, I was not alone but being a firm believer in modern medicine I went to the hospital. As I write this my body is being pumped full of antibiotics, there is purple GV all over my arm and I had to fashion a makeshift bandage to cover my arm so i won't gross people out. Now I'm searching for some cover up, miracle night repair and the whole damn arsenal like crack. I would sell my LV Speedy to have a regular arm again, seriously.

I would like to use this medium to apologise to the family of the deceased electric ant [which i have named Linus, because I hate that name]. Please forgive me, don't send anybody else after me, I'm very sorry for killing Linus , if you can get your account details to me I would like to give you some finacial assistance. I know,no amount of money can replace him but maybe your own personal MAC studio fix, in NW45 perhaps?

YES WE CAN, AND WE DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barack Hussein Obama beat John McCain to become the 44th president of the United States of America. Correction, he effing slaughtered him with 339 electoral votes to McCain's 139 as of 6.15am.

History is so made, it hurts.

Bye haters!

November never used to be my favourite month, it barely even registered on my radar, i mean i'm born in July, I LOVE July. I always thought of November the way Jo March in 'Little Women' did, as the bleakest, darkest month, sort of a darkest before dawn month, you know heralding Christmas and all that. But lately I've been absolutely LOVING November and not just because a certain someone was born on the 25th, but also because it has a sort of pre-climatic feel to it. The weather starts to get colder, all of us Nigerians that like to pretend we're in yankee start layering and wearing jackets and boots. The fall fashions are gawjus, I mean f/w is my absolute favourite fashion season, its such a departure from the sickening pastels and candy colours of spring and summer. It has my two favourite zodiac signs Scorpio and Saggitarius [ i have no idea why i love them, they just seem way cooler than wimpy Cancer]. And last but not least my favourite [i'm overusing the word i know] literary character ever, I love her even more than Becky Bloomwood Brandon [ shocking Nkem, I know] , Wilhemina Winthrop Ikehorn Orsini Elliot from 'Scruples' was born on the 1st of November. Its no reason to love a month but trust me, I'm possessed like that.

November kicks ass.

Halloween for me was pretty uneventful, but honestly Nigerians are imaginative, I think the Halloween themed parties this year eclipsed any I've seen before. I mean Naija rocked it like it was going out of style, elaborate decorations and costumes and what not. We just have yankee fever, when America sneezes, Nigeria catches a cold. Does anybody even know when Sango was born sef? Even New Yam Festivals we've been celebrating for eons, apart from the obligatory stint on CNN via Inside Africa, it is virtually unrecognized beyond Nigeria. But anyway who gives a flying saucepan, Halloween is way more fun than any old yam festival.

Have been in Abuja for almost 3 weeks and i'm still trying to settle in, but i got a massive boost last night from the opening of a new juice bar. I'm not a health nut or anything, I mean I take my calories like a man or like a genetically blessed female who has remained a size 6 for her whole adult life no matter what crap she ingests. But i really like fruits, its shocking because my idea of something nutritious yet refreshing is Baskin Robbins Butter Pecan ice-cream. Anyway since i'm a lazy bitch the thought of peeling pineapples and oranges sends me into an absolute tizzy, so whenever I find freshly squezzed juice [ not that concentrated shit] or fruit smoothies, i can almost sell my black, patent leather Lanvin tote to get it [almost, but not quite].

Back to the point, last night MEGA JUICE opened for business in Abuja, located at the Farmer's Market in Maitama [so you know they'll never run out of fresh fruit] their smoothies are absolutely to die for, refreshing yet nutritious is not the word. I practically OD'd on their mango smoothie last night, amaaayyyyzing. I Endorse!
