Funny list though, some are funny but true but some... hmmm...

Enjoy your weekend.

Seattle is actually a very nice place. I fell in love with the area last year and I just knew I had to move back here permanently. The companies out here also pay very well..I think I may have narrowed down the companies you're talking to if they're "internet" related. Best of Luck o! Keep us updated :)

One Reason to Date Naija or African Women:
Because we don't expect you to be able to fix the car when it breaks down or the washing machine when it stalls. No such pressure. We understand that you might be an engineer, but you only do paper work. For everything else there's Fatai the "fokanisa" and Gbenga the Electrician.

My apologies if your name is Fatai or Gbenga.
