Not Much Drama
So the first show was basically an introduction to the girls. Not much going on dramatically. Well except that this Monique girl is trying a bit too hard to be the bitch in the house. I hope Tyra catches on and cuts her before she can say A in ANTM. Another theme that will be big and probably bore me is the pretty-ethnic-girl-who-does-know-she-is-beautiful. Anchal is cute but she ain't no Aisharawa Rai so they need to chill with the ogling abeg. Our twirling twins were back for a short while and I was just at that BelAge hotel this summer. Anyways I can't type too much. I have to go to bed early because have to be up at 4am to drive to LA to take care of some 'immigration' matters. Can you imagine that the devil tried to usurp the situation and it almost got cancelled. But you know, where there is a will, there is a way and God found a way to make it happen. I will have to drive back tomorrow night since I have to work on Friday. Can't take too many days off man, Christmas is coming and we have to buy ticket. Anyways as you are saying your prayers tonight, please pray for my 'immigration matter' . And no it is not a job interview for all the 'amebos' that be snooping around and trying to decode Adaure's business.
One problem however, WHERE THE HELL WILL I WATCH OPRAH TOMORROW. JOHN LEGEND WILL BE ON THE SHOW AND ADDY CANNOT MISS IT FOR THE WORLD. Anyways I will fill you in on my adventures. Oh by the way, how about Addy played Super Hero and Super nanny for a hot minute today. Can you imagine how careless some parents can be with their children. So my apartment complex is gated right and as I was coming back home from work, I saw these to kids, a 5 year old and his perhaps almost 2 year old baby brother playing at the gate and running in between as cars were passing. Turns out they were trying to go out of the gate. Anyways I drove up right on time to see them escape through the gate. The two year old running towards the main road. Omo my head shacked oh considering all the children that had been run over the past few weeks. Anyways I stopped my car and like a true Nigerian started yelling at them. "What are you doing here? Where is your mother?". The 5 year old started telling me some story and then I was like OK I'm going to open the gate so walk back into the complex. He agreed, but the baby was more interested in my car and running towards me. SO I had to get out and pick him up, meanwhile the 5 year old was standing in between the moving gates and trying to be superman and hold them from locking. This is a high powered iron gate. You should have seen the way I yelled at him. Luckily another driver was coming so he opened the gate and I went in and told the boy to hold his baby brother and wait for me to bring the car in. As in you never know who would call 911 and say they saw a black woman putting the white baby in her car in an apparent attempt at kidnapping. Please O. Anyways I drove in and told the boy to hold his brother and show me where their house is. Just as I started turning I see this woman lumbering towards and calling the kids. In my best imitation of an angry black woman with a southern accent, I yell at the lady "Ma'am, are these your children? Why would you let them out of your sight to walk into traffic? If you can't keep them safe, there are other women who gladly will?" I probably should not have said the last bit but I was so very upset. And she was so lackadaisical about getting the kid. Instead of carrying the baby off, she held his hand and was like 'c'mon, c'mon' in baby steps. Anyways she apparently was not going to open her mouth to say anything in her defense because she knew she was guilty, but the least she could have said was thank you. Trust Addy to remind her in the most curt of ways. I was like "Can you at least say thank you?" she did and I replied in sarcasm "You are welcome." Lol.. I swear man, I needed that drama. The picture that I can't get out of my head though was the cute black air force guy who opened the gate. He saw me in my most vulnerable moment...actually showing love and care to children. AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!! I know I am going to pay for that slip up if he sees me again. Hopefully he's single sha but I doubt it. Those military guy can marry like it is going out of style. Anyways I am looking forward to this weekend. That's because I just got my free copies of Chimamanda Adichie's Half of A Yellow Sun and W.J Richardson's The Ghost of Emmet Till. That 'Chichi's' book looks very intimidating oh, all 434 pages of it. I am sure I can be done with it if I spend Saturday and Sunday reading. That's all for now sha, will bring you more gist later. Peace and love in the middle east (Speaking of which, did you guys see how Hugo Chavez lambasted George Bush at the UN meeting by calling him the devil and practically doing the 'stations of the cross' while at it. It is serious. What do you guys think about it and the situation with the Pope which doesn't seem to be letting up. Even one Muslim group in Nigeria has chimed in. I am surprised that some nut head in Jos has not stirred up a religious riot yet, or have I spoken too soon)
