Why can't They Just Get Along

Howdy folks, just had to throw that in cos am from H-town, Texas babayyyyyy and just came back from Nashville, TN which is the home of cowboys and country music.

Anyway hope I won't be crucified with my tantrums today 'cos it has to do with why women just can’t get along and even live together. Studies have pretty much concluded that women always have problems with each other cos women are very much competitive amongst each other and cos of raging hormones as well.(God help you to cross a woman been hormonally disarranged by menstrual cramps)

I have twin sisters and I always notice the competition amongst them while growing up, although the Kehinde is more competitive though and the Taiwo is laid back and does not like wahala.

Coming back to what prompted this chit chat, I was a little late for my flight down here on Thursday and could not check my bag in, so I had to carry it on with my laptop bag which actually was a pain, but thank God I only have a travel pack lotion, deodorant spray and a small Eau de toilette in the bag. So I had to run with both bags to the terminal and made it into the plane. I got to my seat and the lady thatz suppose to be seating beside was having a throw down with the lady seating right behind me, cos the lady behind me was trying to tell her to put her laptop bag under the seat in front of her so that she can have enough space to put her carry on bag. The lady seating beside me was not giddy with that idea and thatz where the wahala started o. I tried talking to both of them but I finally rest my case cos they indirectly told me to shut my trap, cos they got this. Anyway I finally agree to let the woman beside me put her laptop bag under the seat in front of me and I just thank God that I found a spot to put my bag upfront before I got to the seat, cos am sure both of them would have turn on me if I as much talk about putting my bag up there. Well they kept referring to each other all through the flight o.

Make sure you watch the video O!!!

So folks what is your own view about why women can’t as much has get along?

Cancer News From Johns Hopkins

This is News update from John Hopkins Hospital. It is a good


Cancer update -- Johns Hopkins -- Cancer News from Johns Hopkins:

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins a nd how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave

using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics

releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex

or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only

without the dioxin.

So such things as frozen dinners, instant ramen noodles and soups,

etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over! foods to be cooked in the microwave.

As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.

Cover food with a paper towel instead.

So folks am wishing you a lovely week ‘cos as of right now we are having an ice sleet or ice storm down here o.

Why can't women get along?
Hmmmm I don't know...but I guess we are not as tolerant as guys, and we get easily irritated.
Nothwithstanding, we still have stress free ladies :-)

LOL @ the proverbs.

As the saying goes, one of the best things about being a man is that you can walk into a party, meet someone wearing exactly the same tuxedo or dressed far better than you are and still become best friends.

I made the switch to Pyrex and ceramic ages ago. Thanks for the headsup.

women are special. They are indeed somthing else, but you know what, guys wont have us any different. So how have you been. All this travelling. Did you say that you were moving to Florida. Which one is Nashville, or is there a lady friend there?? - See how I missed your birthday sorry..abeg..

As usual your jokes are hysterical. Have a blessed week.

Wow @ the cancer newsletter. This world just gets worse each and every day. Very soon we won't be able to eat coz something in the food will melt in our bodies and will react with something in the stomach or blah blah not a doctor so excuse my illiteracy.

I do believe women find it hard to work together or eve live together in some instances. Completion is the key factor.

Hows Tampa?

I don't know what it is..maybe the hormones lol. See how wicked naija lady drivers can be! Once they see a woman behind the wheels they start to form 'I can drive better than you'. Its really quite annoying cos I'm nicer to ladies than danfo drivers loll. And don't let me start on some chicks from my sec school, you'd say hi and they would do that cross eyed, 'are you talking to me?' look. The same girls that used to steal your water from your flask! After experiences like that I guess girls start becoming more cautious of other girls and it creates this evil cycle.

Its really amazing and I don't get it can never be explained

So my number is nought-9-nought-dozen-dozen-dozen. Who remembers that joke.

Women can't get along bcos they have insecurity issues and and an amazing apetite for drama.

At Tuesday, January 23, 2007 12:53:00 PM, Blogger beautyinbaltimore said...

Women don't get along because we are very competive with each other for the attention of men. When men are not around some women behave a bit better.
I heard about the plastic issue somewhere before. I think I need to make some changes.
