I haven’t updated this blog in exactly a week!! *gasp*
I’m one of those people who roll my eyes whenever I’m on a blog and the owner is apologizing for being away/too busy/whatever else to post new content; only to inevitably disappear again. I mean, what’s the point? You know you’re going to disappear again so…… Ha ha.
I don’t want that to become the story of me and this blog – going off, coming back, apologizing, and inevitably going off again – No! Let’s not do that here! I promised not to allow myself become a slave to this though, in that I’d be feeling bad/guilty when I haven’t updated. I love to talk/share, it’s the reason I even thought to start this journey in the first place, so trust me, if I have stuff to share, I will; but I also have days when I don’t utter a word to nobody at all. It’s just life. Sometimes, the inspiration is just not there and you’re sort of moping through the day and those days are all a major/legitimate part of my story so….. Anyways, if you ever refresh this page and nothing new pops up, it’s just for the simple fact that I have nothing new to share. When I do have though, you sef go know – 3 posts per day on some days, nothing at all on other days. I have no schedule; I just want this to be as organic as possible.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day. And social media was agog with the “my mum is the best” type epistles; all good. My Facebook/twitter/instagram feeds were popping with pictures of mums looking like sisters/girlfriends and it was all very lovely. But as with every year on the Nigerian side of the interwebs this happens [this tweet sums it up perfectly]
I literally guffawed when I saw it because it was spot on!
“ahn ahn, how many mother’s days are there in year?”, “ehn, Mothers are the best, they deserve all the love every day of the year sef”, “What about single fathers who hold it down” “If it’s paining you that people are posting about Mother’s day, log out, it’s not our fault if your mother is horrible”
Hahahahahahahhaahahaha. Gosh gotta love us.
Personally, I think it’s great that we appreciate our mums and all but if your mum isn’t on any of these social networks and/or isn’t following you, I hope that after you’re done waxing lyrical on the internet, you’d actually remember to pick up the phone and call her and tell her all those lovely things. And maybe send her a lovely present if you can. If not…… Scoreline: 0
My mum is not on any social media network so I rang her; but my sister is and I made sure to celebrate her with posts on all my social media pages because she will actually see it, and I also called her. It is her very first mother’s day and she didn’t even know it was mother’s day. Typical. My sister is the baby of the family and therefore has all that typical last born behavior but motherhood is really changing her and it’s just amazing to see her growth now as someone’s mummy. I’m so thankful to her for giving us Iveren, my beautiful niece. Iveren is such a happy baby, always laughing and playing, no fuss at all. Just look at! Too precious!
Happy mother’s day to my mum, my sister and to all the mums out there. You guys are super heroes and I pray God empowers you daily to continue being awesome.
Do you watch/follow House of cards? [ATTENTION: This part may/may not contain spoilers]
I’m not even sure what constitutes spoilers these days as people are so sensitive, lol. I think that there should be a statute of limitation for spoiler vexing, like if you’re an avid follower of a show and an episode has aired, you lose the right to shout woe after one week of its debut. #MyRules
You can be talking about a show that aired like one year ago and somebody will scream spoiler! I usually reply with LOSER! Ha ha. Gerrout. Also, what exactly is a spoiler? If I’m not letting in on a significant plotline, why oh why are you in my ears vexing? It’s almost like these days, just a mere mention of the name of the series/movie will inevitably have someone shouting SPOLIER at you. Let’s all relax.
Anyways, here’s my House of Cards Season 3 review in 2 words – IT DRAGS!!!
This season should be named the Doug Stamper Show, TF?! I was so bored! I watched the entire seasons 1 & 2 in a day and it served from the very first episode! With Season 3 though, I’d sometimes pause it mid episode to sleep. Yes, that bad!!! However I managed to hang in there and by episode 9 into 10 it starts to pick up momentum. I’d tell you this, the only reason I stuck with it till that far into the season was purely for old time’s sake. Like I wasn’t gon’ fall my nigga Frank’s hand; his deliciously devious self deserves better. But I’m telling them not to try this nonsense with Season 4 abeg, I got things to do!
This season though, Petrov is the real MVP. Dude is one rude muthafucker in his funny way of speaking even when he’s being serious. And he’s so shady. The real slim shady. The McDaddy of Shade School.
Can we talk about Claire Underwood real quick? Ice Queen! I do not feel any atom of sympathy for her, it’s too late in the game to start trying to renegotiate dynamics. The train done left the station. Sorry ma’am! You made that bed, you gon’ lie in it whether it’s too warm or not. Madam First lady knew exactly what she signed up for with Mr. I-Shit-On-Your-Head, ergo, she’s lost the right to start trying to act fresh all of a sudden. I was so annoyed by her antics, Ice Queen started melting, wo! Stay out of the kitchen if it’s too hot but don’t interrupt the chef.
One thing though – Claire’s fashunz is too bunz! She’s a beautiful woman, epitomizes grace, and oozes class and elegance. She walks like she’s gliding… and she’s aging so well. just beautiful!
That scene in the women’s bathroom though? WOW!!!!!
I found myself getting quite intrigued by Meechum; even though he barely said four words all season. I feel like he’ll probably get a bigger part as the show progresses. I cared none for Tom Yates, his intentions seemed off to me from the jump and I generally don’t like people who try to psycho-analyse everyone and everything. Plus he’s a sour loser and he put those ideas into Claire’s head so… bye!
I have no doubt in my mind that the devil’s spawn – Frank J Underwood – will swing this minor setback like a pro and bounce back stronger. In Frank we trust. #OneNationUnderwood
