I just realized I started my blog exactly 1yr ago.Cant believe it's already a year,seems like I just started.

I remembered that faithful day at work,bored as hell and I decided to start doing a random search on google and I got directed to blogsville by mistake,cos I cant even remember what I searched for.I read a couple of blogs and decided to start my own blog that same day.You can view my first post HERE ,which by the way did not get a comment till June,2006.

My second post was on the 5th of May,2006,followed by my third post on 16th of May,2006 and that was when I got my first comment on my blog,which was by the one and only Original Iya Ijebu turned Tushed Lagos Girl.Buki thanks for starting the long string of comments on my blog and I also thank everybody that has visited my blog and has been leaving comments,appreciate it.

Like the saying goes "You meet people everyday and everywhere you go,but you only remember the ones that made an impact somewhat or somehow within you".I have learnt a lot of things from people I met through this blog which has helped me one way or the other to deal with life and some other aspects of life.From people sharing their experiences about issues,events etc has helped in a way or two and also always make me give thanks in all situations that I find myself.I just learnt how to cook Okassi and Ogbonna soup from blog friends.

Miguel I threw it down like I promise you o,this women aint got nuthn on us when it comes to holding t down in the Kitchen.I bet Ironchef is getting scared of getting a run for his money.LOL.

Check out my Okassi soup

Check out the Okassi soup with it;s soulmate,pounded yam

I really appreciate everybody that has visited my blog,with or without leaving a comment,cos your comments make me look forward to check my blog everytime and most of them actually make me laugh when am even in a bad mood.

Anyway the party is going down @ "CLUB DRINK@HOME"address is "25 BUY YA OWN BEER RD, YAOWNCHOPS TX 00419" with "DJ HOPE U HAVE A RADIO" in da house ....LOL

Wanted to blog about something else but I guess I needed to write something about my blogniversary.Anyway before I forget,if you guys did not follow the Latest "Survivor Nigeria" AKA "GUILDER ULTIMATE SEARCH" that just ended,my guy Hector Jobarteh won the money and the Car prize.

You guys have a wonderful rest of the week and here is a joke for you guys


A man dies and goes to hell. There he finds that there is a different hell for each country and decides he will pick the least painful to spend his eternity. He goes to a German hell and asks, what do they do here? He is told, first they put you in an electric chair for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the German devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day.

The man does not like the sound of that at all so he moves on. He checks out the U.S. and Russian hell and many others. He discovers that they are similar to the German hell.

Then he comes to the Nigerian hell and finds that there is a long line of people waiting to get in. Amazed, he asks, What do they do here?
He is told, first they put you in an electric chair for an hour, and they then lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. The Nigerian devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day. But that is really the same as all the other hells, so why are there so many people waiting to get in? asks the man.

Because there is never electricity, so the chair does not work. The nails were paid for in naira but never supplied because of shortage of raw materials, so the bed is comfortable to sleep on. And the Nigerian devil used to be a civil servant so, he comes in signs the time and goes back home for private business.

Fathers Knows Best

A young boy had just gotten his driver's license and inquired of his father, if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said he'd make a deal with his son. "You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we'll talk about the car."

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, "Son, I've been real proud. You brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm real disappointed you haven't gotten your hair cut."

The young man paused a moment then said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and there's even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair."

To this his father replied, "Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?"

Congratulations on your blogniversary ... I'm new to it but loving what I'm seeing so far!!!
