YALE LOSES TEMPER WITH KULUTEMPA

Congratulations Singto!!!!

My darling Singto aka Kulutempa is finally getting kicked out of Yale. Hooray!! You Go Girl. You are officially smart. Bet you didn't think 2 years would go by so fast. Unfortunately I can't be there for all the festivities. Ndidi and Des and everybody else who's going, ya'll need to take mad pictures and call me to tell me all about it. LUV YOU HON!!! CONGRATS AGAIN!!!



Meanwhile I am in Abuja once again. This time for the inauguration events. I was at some TOTALLY ND RADICALLY boring dinner Sunday night. The president was there with Yardy and Goody (trying to find some funky names for them before somebody comes up with something razz like Baba or Oby!?!) and even Shaggy (former president Shagari). It was surreal. As in I was finally able to see these cats that I have been reading about for ages in text books and newspapers. They were LIVE AND DIRECT... Hair, eyes, nose and fingernails. I came so close that I over heard them debating what to do next, whether to go and have proper dinner at someone's house or where to hang out. Basically a 'WHERE THE HELL'S THE AFTER PARTY DAMMIT' kinda conversation. At moments like that you tend to forget how much you dislike these guys for their poor leadership and misgovernment and become what a fan is to a rockstar. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to psyche myself out of my daze and back to paparazzi mode that I MISSED MY MONEY SHOT. May be next time, but here's Shaggy up close.

And here's me with the lovely and ageless Onyeka Onwenu. Isn't she just so cute and adorable.


Being the nosey amebo that I am, I am observing all the political animals of our country jockey for and contemplate positions in the new government. It just reminds me of a hollywood casting call. Each individual, an actor coveting a particular role. Plug in the right names and you have a full credit roll that rivals a blockbuster hit. The scenario is even complete with a casting couch in front of Baba's office. It's interesting to watch, listen and take all in. Some Deep stuvvs. No wonder some appointments just don't add up sometimes, and you just wonder. Anyways while I am here I too might as well join the band wagon...abi no be so. Shiiiiioooooo!!! The position me I want is official PRESIDENTIAL TOWN CRIER and Singto since you are now jobless, I will then hire you as my Senior Special Adviser to the Presidential Town Crier. Sheerruuup my friend, do you know the salary comes in 6 figures and a dollar sign. Lol.

Addy, I see that you're doing great!...keep knocking on doors until you break that glass ceiling. Mehn, me sef I hate that word 'baba', sounds like OBJ is someone's popsy. Yardy, Goody and Shaggy are real good comical names... loving it!

Could not stand your guts but I am really as in HEXTREEMLY excited you are in the corridors of power so now you can see how things work. It is also pleasing you can be honest and see these guys for who they really are behind closed doors and not the beasts they are portrayed as. Not excusing anyones behavior but most of these old papi luwe's are not bad (in person) and I love how you brought the essence of their WHERE THE PARTY AT to life. I am glad you werent? in attendance though, that one fit land another blog away away. Also pleased that you see how you must join if you can't beat them down.

We should get closer to our politicians so we can see how their puny minds work so we can map out ways to make things better and make better things. How do they say it ? Kill em with kindness.
And by the side Onyeka looks like ya husiband. eek! lol

Monef said...

Thanks for sharing that lovely photo of you and Ms Onwenu...you both look glorious. I so love the names you gave our rockstar leaders - Shaggy and Yardy...I was telling everyone over the weekend, that I can't get used to President Yar'Adua...but I think Prezie Yardie will do it for me...the only way I can retain some sanity in this nonsense is to poke a little fun at it (no disrespect meant)

Tutsy said...

A hearty congratulations to Our very own Kulutempa....i love her blog....quite a talent.
