Hey all

How's the week going? Hope the weekend went well.
Mine was activity packed. Had to attend a conference Thursday-Saturday. Lots of talk, talk, and more talk. It went well though. Made new friends and strengthened some old ones.

Sunday was my niece birthday. She turned 8 (can't believe she's 8 already). Its seems like yesterday when i held her in my arms and now she's beginning to dab my lipsticks on and play dress-up with my clothes.
Her name is Rukky (full name is Oghenerukeme-means God has given me or God's gift to me).

There's some form of strange flu going round in Lagos. Almost everybody i know has either catarrh or cough or both. Almost escaped it but my chest feels kinda funny.  My siblings are not left out too, Rukky's mum had a mild fever so she was banned from the kitchen-related activities. 

We had a small get-together for the birthday gal and cos i'm the most fit person around i was the cook, photographer, DJ and MC. Fortunately, it was just about 10 kids that came visiting so it wasn't stressful.

Ms Busy Bee

I am really thrilled another Friday is here again, now i'm confirming some form of trend. Sincerely hope "The Lazy Me" is not becoming a more dorminant personality. I'm particularly looking forward to this weekend cos i intend to stay on the bed till about 9:30am, i only get that luxury once in a while.

I've been meaning to drop a post here for a while but i always turn up with the excuse that i am very busy. To some friends i may sound like a broken record, i even sound like a broken record to myself.
Why didn't you call me? I've been busy
Why didn't you do this? I've been busy
Have you eaten? No, I've been busy
You've had that book for ages when will you finish reading it? I've been busy.
We've not see you in ages!  So sorry I've been busy
Haba! I'm not the only adult working, tis just poor time planning, plain and simple.
So making a firm resolution before going to bed to write out daily To-do list for the next day(and stick to it).
Today i resolve to change. Starting from now. Thank you, thank you very much, enough of the applause.

Lots of people have mentioned that when you're about to get married you'll get very interesting admirers (serious toasters). I'm always quick to say "Abeg! na today men dey toast! I know what i want and no amount of temptation can influence me".
Darling dearest is one of the best things in my life, he's my best friend and we talk about almost everything. My stance hasn't changed but i know that men get very attracted to happy and contented ladies and sometimes they want to tap from that happiness bug.

Last weekend, a close married friend called and she kept asking " What's the gist? Give me names of all the exciting men calling now" Not you too, i thought.
I've met so many willing attractive men in the past. Usually i'm sloooow  in developing emotional feelings. That doesn't mean i'm not passionate, just that over the years I've learnt to keep my overactive imagination and hormones in check.

So couple of days back, i got my first temptation. He's single, tall, dark and handsome....hehehehe. Una wan hear story abi?
We had a long conversation and i discovered we had some things in common. It was nice just chatting and he asked for a date; dinner or perhaps a drink. I had to immediately let him know i'm engaged and won't want him to misunderstand my friendly attitude.
Thought that was going through my mind was will i willingly permit darling dearest to go on a date with a very attractive friend in the name of friendship. If they're old friends, no problem. If its a work date, no problem. But if it can't be defined then best to be cautious.

In situations like this, is it best to 'gist  about other toasters' to one's partner?
Personally i feel too much emphasis shouldn't be placed on other toasters because your partner may either get jealous and a little insecure. But on the flip side, talking about it may nip the bud at any treacherous feelings.

Why does female/male seem more appealing when they're taken?

I was just wondering if there are people who still think in their mother's tongues. I was thinking yesterday when i realized that i was thinking in English. Some years ago i used to think in 'pidgin'. Wonder what language will be next, maybe French! So tell me, in what language do you think?
