Rundown



I'm soo pissed, yesterday I typed an ab fab post [if I do say so myself] and after all the wahala and slow internet and uploading pictures, I clicked on 'publish post' and the damn Starcomms decided to go off at that point, so obviously connection was lost. Still thinking I was dealing with sane people and blogger would have automatically saved the unpublished post, I went to drafts and there was NADA, ZILCH!! I could have shit a brick! I was so mad! So this is gonna be rather rag-tag, because I cant be bothered to type everything I put in yesterday, it was a masterpiece *sob*.

Finished court attachment today, YAAY! No more Federal High Court, Ikoyi, not like it was such a bad experience but I have permanent Louis Vuitton luggage under my eyes as a result of waking up at 5am everyday to begin the slog to the island and as the group leader [yezzir], 3rd World P had to be there first, as in I was practically unlocking Courtroom 2 and who says lightning doesnt strike twice? I was already cool with the idea of being GL for court attachment, then the lists for Law Firm attachment are released and guess who is once again wearing the f*****g crown? Me, me, me, me! You coulda knocked me over with a damn feather. The deal is its the worst job being GL because you cant miss a single day, you cant say, pop off to the Galleria for a quick movie on your lunch break or while away time ogling clothes at the Deola Sagoe showroom. Nah blad, you have to be around, every hour on the hour being a general dogsbody while the members of your group swan back into the office or courtroom after seeing Wolverine and buying Ostrich leather Deola Sagoe belts!!!! No beef, I'm just saying. Anyhoo on a general note, it was sorta fun and I met a lot of cool, funny people, emphasis on the funny [you know yourself], making me crack up while I'm sitting right in front of the Judge and there's a drug trafficker in the dock.



The Federal High Court of Nigeria, holden at Lagos


It doesnt show up too good in this picture but I tried out Kemberleys concealer trick for eyebrows this morning and I just have to say, give the babe lighter! It was like magic, it looked seriously groomed, even though I've been giving Ugly Betty a run for her money for a bit. I endorse!

Oh yeah and the best thing about the hellish drive from Ikeja to Ikoyi everyday? Manny!!! EWELE!! He's the new Cool FM presenter that took over from Dan Foster and he's the absolute highest! He's my new fave person!
*An Aside* My gbegborun friend Henri aka 'Christiana Amanpour' dropped one gbosa that Dan Foster's been deported from Nig back to the US [ironic I know, deported to yankee] Anyhoo as the gist goes, y'all know he left the cool station and set up shop on his own with Inspiration FM, so supposedly the Cool FM bosses were sorta peeved and shopped him to Immigration that the dude didnt have complete papers. So not cool[pun intended], if anyone knows wassup, get back to me aight?

Shout outs to my Queen Bitch cuz Udoka who abandoned us in the Association of Single Bigz Girlz and got married a coupla weeks ago; and


Mr and Mrs Nonso Nwizu

My baybee Mielle, one of my PIC's and a founding member of Ladies Confidential [more of that in the future] who turned the big 25 this week. Happy birthday boo, lor you!


Nneks! Nneks! Neks!

'now owu no dey blow me, I'm fully signed to Mo'hits'..... If you dont know who that is,m you're a dullin sturvs of the highest order.
Whats my name - W Cizzy!!!
Whats the producers name - Na Don Jazzy!!
Which label - Mo'hits, you already know this/ you already know this/ say we no be novice.......
I could go on and on, seriously go cop that 'From Mushin 2 Mo'hits' by Wande Coal, maddest Nig album ever, too frickin messy!!

Spotted uber photographer/songwriter/singer and all round Naija celebrity T.Y.Bello and she's so shy, which is weird considering her line of work. And yes, Eremz, that is her real hair.



Finally saw the kain Wolverine this week and all I can say is Ryan Reynolds should be brought before Amadioha in Arochukwu for murdering my beloved language like that, he shoulda at least made an effort, Ibo is not that hard, there are even tapes and stuff you can use to learn it and get the intonation right. Even their translations were effed and the image of Lagos, looked more like New Delhi to me. All in all I loved Wolvie, Hugh Jackman is a totty to the power of 10! As in that guy had muscles where I didnt know you could get muscles, HOTT!! is not the word, SMOKING!! is still not the word, there isnt a word to describe him. Seriously guys take note, all y'all want your girls to look like supermodels, you better go and ask Hugh Jackman what protein shake he's been taking and order yourself some.


P Dizzy, with an Ibo language tape we saw at a mall in Dubai, thought it was hella funny. There was even a Yoruba one

As usual the great Federal Republic of Nigeria continued to show us that we're a third world country, no matter what. Theres been scarcity of petrol for almost a month now, in a country thats the 6th largest exporter of petroleum products! Its like the Middle East having scarcity of sand or something, its so ridiculous. I've had to learn how to hustle with the best of them and line up for fuel and thank Jehovah that I'm not ugly because I've turned into a champion flirter these few weeks, chatting up a storm with pump attendants and shining my 32 in filling stations across Lagos just to get ahead of the queues. *hiss* I tire jare.


Conoil Station, Lagos-Ibadan expressway , took this on my way to court this morning, lucky I didnt get killed cos I was driving.

I'm out baybeez! p.s. if anyone mentions Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea or Barcelona near me again, you're guaranteed a foot up your a**. Believe that!

  3. @Ada, merci cheri., the other one was classic, I still dont know how it happened. Being on top is not all its cracked up to be mayne, lol. They did speak Ibo, go see it, apart from the language mangling, its a terrific movie and theres always Hugh 'eye candy' Jackman.

  5. That dress is cute and the sash just it gave the extra edge. Love it!

    You know, there are more Ibos in Dubai than say people from other Nigerian tribes. I guess the Ibo CD is there to help prospective employers learn more about their employees.

    Courtrooms= boring. One of the numerous reasons why I decided I'm not going to practice (or go through another academic hell in the form of NLS)

  24. @Roc, that's because you're not a chick. If you knew what I was talking about, there'd be cause for concern. As for WC, if he doesnt win, who else can? There's no Nig album of that standard out now, I"d have gone for MI but I think he won it last year. I wanna follow am die!!! lol
