INTERRUPTION

GUESS WHAT I FOUND ON MY BED AFTER WORK


OMG!!!! Pardon the interuption of FELABRATION but I just have to share with ya'll this marvellous moment in the week. They come rarely so I have to bask in this one. So since I saw this TMX on TV me too had been itching for and secretly desiring one but my rational side has been like WTF do you want with a toy...AGBAYA!!. But every once in a while I would go and see the clip on YouTube to get some good 'laff' on more like to justify for myself that I really should bone up and get one. y justification was that I could save it for my first child, afterall will a toy like this come out again. Interestingly we were reporting on it for the newscast some time last week or two about how stores were limiting one purchase per perosn. I had to make calls to see if I could get permission to send a photographer to go into one of the stores. So I used style to find out where the TMX's were and how much, but lo and behold, the whole of Santa Maria was out of TMX's. Next shipment would not be for another week. Thhe thing vex me small. Meanwhile my newest roommate (this is how you know ppl that are wise) apparently bought like 3 or 4 at regular price from Walmart. How about she sold them on E-Bay for close to $200 each. So yesterday night we had guests over and we were just randomly discussing Xmas wish list(only in our house do guests do the cooking...me and Bach live on Banquet Frozen Dinner..we take turns to stuck up). As I was just yapping on and on and running my mouth about all the things that were on my wish list that I wanted and was dreaming about i.e the Canon GL-2 Camcorder, the EOS 350D camera, the Toshiba A100 Satellite laptop, the Christian Louboutin shoes, a red Porsche 911 4s Cabriolet (na beans) and of course the TMX Elmo which had just made it to the list and is obviously the only thing I can afford at $40. I was just going on about how I was going t get one just so that I can tickle it and laugh every morning, especially as Santa Maria is just dry and I had an off-color day at work that yesterday. I even had to text and call Kulutempa to vent about it (since I can't blog about it). Anyways how about I just walked into my room from work and saw some box on my bed. Omo, FEAR GRIP ME!!! I look the box well well, I come carry had for breast dey look the box like say na spirit. There was a note that read 'Halloween Gift--Jean'. OMG!!! I was like this better not be a bad joke. I went to her room and was like 'Jean!?! What is that on my bead?' and she was like , 'That's for you, I had an extra one.' OOOOHHHH GGGOOOOODDDDD!!! I started jumping like a little kid trying not to let tear rundown my eyes. I was about to have an Oprah moment. In my head I was thinking 'Ok Adaure, don't start crying because she will think you are a weirdo.' Then I tried opening the box and Elmo's voice came ringing through 'Uh Uh Uh..no peaking'.....ARRRGGGGHHHHH!!! I wanted to die. I hugged her like 4 times and I am still grinning from ear to ear. Guess who will be going to work with me tomorrow. ELMO!!! HA HA HA HA!!! If anybody just tries me, I will turn to ELMO and laugh it off. Lol. Anyways I just had to relay how happy that moment was. There are truly people who are very selfless and actually listen to the cares of other people. She could easily have sold it on Ebay for another $200 but she gave it to me because she knew it would make me happy. A genuine expression of kindness that I will endeavor to pass on to another fellow human being. My ELMO shall now have a special name 'Elemochigbue' which literally means 'Look and Laugh Die'. We can go with 'Ele' for short (pronounced 'A-Lay'). It shall be like a puppy to me but without the poop part. I wonder if there is a way to customize a TMX Elmo to laugh and talk in Igbo. Hmh....I wonder. Meanwhile who else has an ELMO? And who is JEALOUS of ADDY right about now.... Hee Hee!!



By the way, I slept through my FIRST EARTHQUAKE last night. A magnitude 1.5 and it happened around midnight. I guess I was having a very sweet dream that I didn't wake up at all.

Meanwhile, this 'bad skin' of mine will soon cause something. So the other day I happened upon a blog that Bella ahd linked o. Something 'juicy'. The blogger wrote something on how she was dealing with adult acne and was eating aloe vera and it was working. Now I have heard that before. My friend who goes to Grailand used to eat aloe vera like it was mango, and her skin is like a baby's bottom. Smooth and fresh. I even drank a gallon of aloe juice one time for curing my acne. I also use dto break off the leaves from Desmina's Aloe plant that she used to decorate the house to rub on my face. So seeing this again and it being a time when I was really having a major break out and chaffing because of the retin a treatment, I decided to try this recommendation. WHhy did yours truly go to 'WalMarket' to go and buy an Aloe plant for dinner. I got all excited and proceeded to part the broken leaf in two right down the middle. I scraped out the 'gelly' and 'slimy' inside and put it in my mouth in order to swallow. That was a big mistake. The nastiest thing ever. My pallete was not having it at all and it was not agreeing with my taste buds. Before I knew it, I was puking majorly in the bathroom. Oh God!!! I could see the delicious steak and corn that I had eaten for lunch just go down the drain. I was upset oh. Doyou know how much wastage that it. Luckily for me I had not had dinner so I was able to replenish what I had lost. So the moral of my story, for anyone who is attempting to eat ALoe Vera, BIKO no try am. I have done teh experiment for you so it is not neccessary anymore. Just stick to rubbing it on your face and skin-problem area. By the grace of God one day one day I will have skin like 'Beyonce' and will be glowing like 'Gloria'. Lol

ADD: Awwwww MEEEENNNN STOOOPPPP....... I am having a crazily fabulous day. John Legend's album dropped yesterday. Can you imagine that I forgot. How about I just got that in my email (sorry folks can't share, go buy your copy so me and jonhy can put food on the table). YES!!! ADDY IS HAVING THE BEST WEEK EVER!!!!! First Elmo now JL. Also got the Resonance Album mailed to me last week. I am killing that song LeeLee. The Igbo lyrics aka 'akwa uwa' is just too 'rad'. Thanks anonymous sources. Here's a toast to all the anonymous sources that be giving hook ups ;)

ok, so i went to watch the youtube video of the bloody elmo, and i did laugh out loud. HOWEVER that doesn't mean i'm going back on our discussion last night; you're still a loser for wanting one! surely after the third tickle, you'll be so over elmo?! after seeing that dog, though, i can just imagine how much fun it'd be to have an elmo if you had a dog that was confused about whether or not it was real and then proceeded to ENTER elmo with playful gusto! now THAT would be funny

I know o, the igbo on that Resonance album rocks. It's a nice album. It's about time they did some funky igbo gospel.
I'm probably one of the very very few igbo people that feels this way, but I'm not into all dem 'Aka Jehovah' and 'Akanchawa' and all those ones, especially when they now leave the igbo and start singing 'yorubas are calling o se, hausas are calling nagode'. I know people love it madly but it makes me roll my eyes.
So more power to Resonance... now all that's left is an igbo gospel highlife (a la Bright Chimezie, or even better Oliver de Coque, or even better Osita Osadebe) kinda thing.

Addy,
Have u tried some mary kay? For real tha thing works for acne skin. Ask a consultant for the basic set for acne and stick with it like religiously and omo i promise u will see the results. I can give u a marykay consultant website to order from. It works adaure try it cos i had acne worse that yours and people cannot blieve my sking now. i JUST tell em good ol mary kay.
I am also not a fan of agatha moses hated that cd, but i like the akanchawa song even though the cd was kinda...... We need some real igbo gig. Stick with igbo allthru or yoruba all thru or hausa all thru. That's my 2cents.
Congrats on ur elmo. Dont see myself getting on sha but it;s kinda cute. Me i would rather spend 40 bucks on a good book(i know am boring)Sometimes we need a good laff.
Good job addy
