…or is it Ada and Eve now?
I have always preferred the same old story…you know the same one you know where boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy tells girl, girl likes boy too, they both get married, kiss and have a truck load of kids and live happily ever after. Pretty sure God approves of that too…cause he did put Eve in the garden with Adam and told them to be fruitful and multiply and just look at the world today! lol
So it really does break my heart to see what’s going on right now, right underneath our noses. This, if you didn’t already know must definitely be the end of the world, what with the declaration of gay status by hundreds of people all over the world especially in the Western climes.
Interestingly, same-sex marriage is now officially illegal in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Although I find the concept of gay marriage utterly disgusting (yes, UTTERLY DISGUSTING), one thing that we must all realize is that events are not just happening. There is a relentless march by the world’s most powerful towards a New World Order (“Novus Ordo Seclorum”), one in whicheverything anti-religion (including homosexuality) would not only be accepted but widely acclaimed. It’s a crazy twist but it’s happening -all in preparation for the One-Eyed (which is by the way a topic for another day).
In a world where there is so much HYPOCRISY, there couldn’t have been a better time. Well done, Nigerian senators, now can we discuss a better anti-corruption bill, please?
God help us.
The winter months are almost here and it’s time to stack up on all the cloth layering!!! So for all the girls out there who like me love to look good without doing away with the the “functionality”, these outfits could be of great help. It would work also for those of us expecting the harmattan.
Now that the weather has changed and fall is here (with winter soon to come), it’s time to retire the shorts and sundresses and embrace cold weather fashion.
Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you need to resort to leggings and oversized “college” sweatshirts! Read on for easy tips on how to look chic for class while staying warm in fall and winter.
Tips on Dressing for Cold Weather
- Layers are your new best friend. Most buildings on campus will try to overcompensate for the chilly weather outside by cranking up the heat inside. It’s a nice gesture, but if you’re not wearing layers, you can end up sweating through your classes. Layering in a casual way is easy: start with a tank or tee, add a cardigan or sweater, and top it off with another jacket, scarf, and/or hat (depending on how cold it is outside). You’ll still look cute and will be comfortable no matter where you go.
- Make scarves and hats your signature accessories. I started my love affair with scarves a few years ago, and I haven’t been able to give them up since. They come in literally thousands of shapes, colors, and patterns, and instantly add excitement and warmth to any outfit. Hats are another great option to keep your ears warm and cover up any bad hair days you may have.
- Invest in a great pair of boots. This is especially important if you live somewhere where winter brings lots of snow and ice. A truly great pair of boots will keep your feet warm and match with a lot of different outfits you already have. Whether you like desert boots, riding boots, or an edgier option, find a pair you love and wear them with everything.
- Pants are not the only option. Dresses and skirts are still definitely options when the weather turns colder. As long as you pair them with tights (sweater tights are particularly warm) you can stay true to your personal style without freezing.
Honestly, I didn’t think I would ever have to say anything on this issue at all…after all Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela were both here before me but then here I am typing. Like isn’t this the 21st century already? We need to wake some people up, they’ve been sleeping way too long and courtesy of them some really nasty things are happening….a little something called “racism.”
So I thought of how I could in my own little way try and curb this disgusting issue and I thought to write an open letter to all the racists out there reading this. Please read, then show your other racist friends, thank you! 🙂
I wish you didn’t have to feel so bad about yourself so much so that you try to make other people feel like the problem is with them…when it’s not. Please be reminded that this whole thingy is soooo yesterday and for the much older folk, I mean it’s a thing of the past. You do realize that this is the 21st century, don’t you? Wonder why anyone would love to live in the stone age now…what with all the technological advancements…quite a pity and if you are one of such persons, you really are pathetic! Anyways, I hope you do have a change of heart cause life really is sweeter from a non-sadistic point of view. Everyone should be proud of who they are and should not be bullied for it.
I pray you retrace your steps before you get your ass kicked! 🙂
+ I just couldn’t resist flaunting this beauty….. 😉
….because I am fearfully and wonderfully made and Iam proudly Nigerian!!! whoop whoop!!!
“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
My fellow Nigerians and the rest of the World at large, I present to you the acting chairman of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorede, a native of Adamawa State.
He was the Director of Operations upon his appointment as the acting chairman (please note that he has served in this same capacity before now).
I am hoping that things would turn around for the better under his leadership.
This award category is for the person with the most expensive poop…and the winner is *drumroll* Baba Suwe, whose poop is worth a whooping 25million naira!!!
Yes, it is indeed victory galore for the ace comedian as a court has ruled that the NDLEA pay the veteran 25 really big ones in compensation according to the Vanguard Nigeria.
Congratulations Baba Suwe!
My advice: Don’t get yourself in this kind of shit again! 😉
I believe that by now news has made the rounds of Farida Waziri, sacked EFCC’s boss removal. What is new however is that she claims she heard of her dismissal over the television just like millions of other Nigerians meaning she hasn’t received any formal indication pertaining to it. Hear her, ” I have not gotten any fact. I only heard it over the television and I have nothing to say.” That was her reply to a journalist inquiring on her position regarding the whole issue.
I have to say, its a pity, for me at least because I had so much faith in that woman (like I do in countless others) and like so many other Nigerians, I still await a formal address on this from Mr. President.
What has been made public however is that her removal came as a result of her shoddy handling of former Delta State governor, James Ibori’s case (when would this guy finally get out of the news headlines?? jeeeeeze!!!) whose acquittal by a court was not contested by an appeal from the EFCC. Also her lack of tact in steering the EFCC’s affairs and also the loss of goodwill from the international community on her account were some of the reasons given.
It would however interest you to know that the person at the helm of affairs now at the EFCC in acting position, is one Mr.Ibrahim Lamorede, an officer in the Nigerian Police Force (hmmmmmmmm) and until Waziri’s removal was the Director of Operations there. I guess we should be thrilled that he has also served in this same capacity before Waziri’s appointment in 2008 by the late President Yar’Adua (talk about us moving in circles, if you say we aren’t going back).
I can only hope and pray like the true patriotic Naija girl that I am (apologies to aunt Dora ) that this change would turn out to be a good thing for Nigeria. Someone should please remind Mr. President of the promise he made to allow Nigerian women to be actively involved in the revolution of change sweeping across the nation. (pardon me if I sound a little feminist but it is about time they did something about that 33% thingy they were making noise about!)
…..and to aunt Farida, I can only wish the best in whatever she decides to do after now.
