Happens to the best of us!!

Thanks to Jny23 for waking me up from my sweet slumber.....I was enjoying it so much that I completely forgot about my blog family and duties. I wish it was that enjoyable, truth is like Chantal, I somehow forgot my password and even recovering it was tossed aside.




What's new?

Lots of stuff actually. In short I'll say I've been there and done that.


Migrating to my new portable powerhouse left me with nothing to do but play all those games I so wanted to but was limited with graphics.


Ah yes, I winding up my first sem of college...Oh my what a wonderful and beautiful place to be...All the long hours class laboring and bonitiful chics and guys. My school have pple from almost every corner of the world and I'll admit that my favs are the hybrids...A mixture of Brazil-Indian hair with African booty and Latino skin....wow!!


Btwn Someone please share the link for the node six blogs....I also gave up trying to get it.


How I've so missed you guys!!


Nice to be back tho!!

...If she's not sleeping with you

Hello's

Like they say all good things come to an end, I split up with her (not Eve) and was thrown back into the single and seriously searching league and met up with some of the guys who have been there for quite a while. We did share knowledge which I will share in this post.

If a girl is into you, she's sleeping with you and if after 1 month or 2 months at the very out side she's not sleeping with you, hmmm heheheeh She does not like you.

The Trick is to spot this girl early, such that you don't want to waste the 1-7 weeks waiting to find out it's never going to happen.

So here's some science on how to spot this girl

A girl will never sleep with you

1. If she calls you cuddly or dependable

2. pops a zit in front of you

3. Her name is Amber or Christine

4. Takes a dump in your bathroom

5. Takes home left over's on dates one, two or three

It's not scientific but am just saying, you've been warned

Success in the hunt

To Keep or Not to Keep

"Yes, I will remove it" I respond with no passion

For the 4th time the past week I've told my mum those words whenever she see me and brings up the topic on my beard and how horrible it makes me look which got me wondering

Is facial hair on guys that bad?

As a teenager, I used to admire the older guys' beards because the looked really so cool and made them look wise. The admiration was so great to such an extent once at school with a couple of friends raided the chemistry lab in quest of sliver nitrate which brought promise of a mushrooming beard when applied only once.

To date am not sure who brought such a crazy idea but all I can say was it never did work and no one got even a single strand of academic fiber. It might have probably been we followed the instructions wrongly but a few years later it turned out the timing was wrong and we were not yet of a worthy age for the fibers.

Now, I have a couple of my own fiber's, they just grow quickly and whenever I go to the barber, the lines are very discouraging and yet a brother is so tired from building the nation. I only worked my electric razor once but preferred if someone else did the job for me while I sat back relaxed comfortably on the chair.

Am certainly at loss on what to do. My wise mum says I'll get more points with the ladies If I spared some time to take care of them fiber's but am not yet the type to give in 30mins - an hour of shaving and I had my barber work on them about 5.5 weeks back.

I've hahad talk about doing what you want/love but what about what the people think/say?

So ladies how do you like dude's facial hair shaggy and wild, empty or neatly trimmed?

block

Hellos's

The past 4 days have passed and am not even finished with one post. I have about 6 drafts and I now believe the blocks have moved in permanently.


How was every one's weekend??


Enjoy the rest of the week

What I've Done?

Am at that phase where I only get about 4hrs of bed rest. Am not complaining about it, am already used to the patter by now but it means I get so little time to update my posts let alone catch up with what every one is up to.

A recent survey I took on face book says my stress level is @ 97% despite trying it several more times, I could not get the number lower. It went on further to say I should manage my time bulungi...Only if whoever made that quiz could take up my shoes.

If you do not believe, here is a printout of my results. Interesting stuff I must admit


Like the say such things do not last for long, Am rushing up with stuff such that I can enjoy later on. At least that's my plan. Everything seams set for me and I have no deadlines as yet.

The Eve story should come up on my next post, which will be this weekend. For the moment am off to think out ways of maximising and managing my time well.

How are the rest of y'all?

4th of July!!!

One thing is certain, the Americans are terribly proud and maximise on fun during the 4th of July holiday....Believe me up till about 8pm that glorious day, I did not know it was all about their independence till I curiously asked a Hispanic bystander why he was yelling he loves America so much.

"We get to party all night and a beautiful display of fireworks" was his jolly reply before disappearing into the passing chanting crowd without satisfying my curiosity.

My new made friend Eve(another story), who convinced me to join in the celebrations finally told me it was really all about the American independence...

I was so tipsy all my photo shots came out hazy but the beautiful almost 40 min display was spectacular and just like sex, much better live than from some display on T.V

Here is my best standing some where on 40th St.



The rest of the night I spent dancing away drinking and puffing away at Cuban hand made Cigars, needless to say, having plastic really made the night sweeter.

Music and Ngoni

I like Ngoni. Ngoni the band which is mainly some two dudes, mostly because the way they sing somehow makes me laugh and cheers up. Am not yet aware if they have a PAM award or someother award because apparently am not the number one fan.

I watched the Video they made with Desire over the weekend and was very amused the whole way...of cource being in Uganda, they can be forgiven for being so monotonous and using only one scene in a group of malwa and a weirdly dressed lawyer.

Here is the Video am trying to yipe about,Pls note: It might not get any award

video

Between I think they are making some mob dime, the lawyer guy has turned out to be such a fatso and his face was like he'd been in some bar fight. At this rate I should try singing too...Any one know someone who can turn my croaking voice into dimes??

But seriously, someone should show that Ngoni dude where the gym is before he fails to stand up and dance in his next song

Desire as usual was being her hot self.

Cheers!!

Photography

Recently, I was enjoying the April Issue of National geographic and was impressed with the stories and the photographs Illustrated.

So captivated was I that I've taken a liking to searching for and enjoying more of such photos. I was lucky enough and one of my friends who happens to have a serous camera and eye for nature shared with me this link

Here is a link to some of his collection. If you love photography and hope to onetime pursue freelance photojournalism, this could be a place to start

http://www.flickr.com/photos/myblessing/

Which other photo sources can you share?

What's your current passion?

Switchfoot Love

Over the weekend, I reconnected with my top most band switch foot. Their latest album "The Best Yet" a collection of their top songs from past albums is just too Ballistic. It does lack a few personal faves like 'Sooner or Later (Soren's Song)' & 'Adding To The Noise' but I also feel in love with 'Concrete Girl' and 'Gone' which have been inspiring and added me some more ounces of a positive attitude.

I thought I'd share the lyrics of 'Gone" which has so far been played 214 times from Saturday.

If you love the Windows Media Player, like me, and have internet connectivity when listening to music, I recommend some cool plug in called lyrics plugin Every thing about it is on the link that follows. http://www.lyricsplugin.com

Hope you are also blown away like me!!

Gone
Switchfoot

She told him she'd rather fix her makeup
than try and fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling
even with the cell phone gone.

She told him that she believes in living
bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards
And upside down.

Don't say so long, and throw yourself wrong.
Don't spin today away, 'cause today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
Just try and prove me wrong and
pretend like you're immortal.

She said, he said, live like no tomorrow
Everyday we borrow brings us
one step closer to the edge. Infinity.
Where's your treasure, where's your hope
if you get the world and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like she's immortal.

Don't say so long, you're not that far gone.
This could be your big chance to make-up
Today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
The world keeps spinning on
You're going, going
Gone, like summer break is gone,
Like Saturday is gone
Just try and prove me wrong and
pretend like you're immortal (you're immortal)
You're immortal (you're immortal)

Ha-ah

We are not infinite
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate
We are so confident in our accomplishments.
Look at our decadence.

Gone, like Frank Sinatra, like Elvis and his mom,
Like Al Pacino's cash, nothing lasts in this life.
My High School dreams are gone,
my childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesn't last for long.

Life is more than money, time was never money.
Time was never cash, life is still more than girls.
Life is more than hundred dollar bills and roto-tom fills.
Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills,
All the riches of the kings end up in wills
We've got information in the information age
but do we know what life is outside of our convenient Lexus cages?

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every moment that we borrow brings us closer
to a God who's not short of cash
Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked.
Life is still worth living, Life is still worth living.
Life is more than you are.

What Should I Say?

For Today's post

So I decided to get a Job for the summer. Only three days and I hate it (Am so good at whining much better than Erique), mostly because I do not get breaks to catch up on my blog family. I'll not even start on the commute, but I travel more than work.


I'll see how long I can stick up before laying down the work uniform


Happy Easter folks!!!


Yes I'll be @ work

The Kiss Test

"How To Tell If She’s Ready To Be Kissed"

I used to have no idea if a woman was ready to be kissed.

I could be sitting there talking to her, thinking to myself “Wow, her lips really look nice...” but I didn't know what to do next. This would often leave me kissless, and many times kissless for good, as I didn't get another chance.

Here's what I do now:

If I've been talking to a girl, and I want to know if she's ready to be kissed, I'll reach over and touch her hair while we're talking and make a comment about it. I'll say "Your hair looks so soft" and just touch the tips of it.

If she smiles and likes this, I'll reach back over and start stroking it again, but this time I also glance down at her lips and back up to her eyes a couple of times. If she lets me keep touching her hair, I know that she's ready to be kissed.


I only Wonder, does this really work? Ladies!

Desire

This post is about Ugandan female artists. It is my answer to the question, who would you date? or as Glenn Quagmire would ask, "which one would you wanton"? or simply put whose your biggest crush?


This did not require much thought on my side when it was randomly spat on me by one of my pals.
She was in red when I first laid eyes on her and not only her voice but moves stole my heart. It was at that Brick&Lace show when she passed by me and smelt like a hot chic is supposed to smell. I was surprised when minutes later she was on stage doing her stuff and just like that I was crushed.


Long story short, here are her pictures and if you believe the red pepper, you're a moron.

Here she is Enjoy!!

Back into Slavary

On top of blogcks, a new hectic schedule is keeping me away from my blog family. How I dearly miss those days of freedom.


Yes I finally finished my chill pills and actually went out to work...So far the first week has given me reason to long for a weekend and TGIF. Due to a certain lousy company policy, I can't even blog about my work.


With this experience, I've come to realise that most of our precious time is actually spent working. In a way we are slaves to our jobs sometimes considering them above family and friends.


On a sad note, it's a shame it seams I won't be joining any of those college girls on spring break


Y'all have a great weekend!

For All The Single Ladies

I've had the block for a while now and much to my dislike, it seams am getting used to it hanging around me like some shadow.

Today I had to share this picture I got from face-book, I did not only laugh but agree with the message.

Please, don't Let this be you!

PS: Am single again and searching..........

Vindicated

Vindicated
Dashboard Confessional


Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in
So, mesmerizing,and so hypnotizing,
I am captivated,I am

Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
Swear I knew it all along
And I am flawed, but I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

So clear
Like the diamond in your ring
Cut to mirror your intention
Oversized and overwhelmed
The shine of which has caught my eye
And rendered me
So isolated,and so motivated
I am certain now that I am

Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
Swear I knew it all along
And I am flawed, but I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

So turn
up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment fall forever

Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I'll be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip against the current
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip away

Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
Swear I knew it all along
And I am flawed, but I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

Slight hope
dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption...

Beautiful Women

As far back as I can remember, I've always had a great passion for collecting and keeping stuff. Not just any stuff but things that amaze and leave me in awe.

I still remember my first attempt at collecting. They were these cute little baby mice I'd got while playing in the chicken house. One look at them and I knew they had to be mine for keeps. I immediately took them away and placed them in one of my school shoes. Soon, my mum was surprised to see the interest the cat had taken in my shoes and there was no way I could explain the cotton wool neatly placed in the shoe. Long story short, I got beaten and the cat enjoyed the mice.

This did not deter me from my collection craze and over the years, I collected lots of stuff from random weird metallic objects by the roadside to bullets and grenade shells from some old battle field not very far away from where I used to live as a toddler. Actually, I still have all the old Ugandan paper currency ever used since independence tucked away somewhere in an old wallet with me but left my coin collection of world currency in the hands of my brother who is not as enthusiastic as me in keeping stuff.

By the beginning of 2008, I had a new idea for a collection. I'd collect all pictures of any beauty my eyes or hands could cross. Things rather went smoothly for me in the start because after sharing my idea with a few friends, It was an instant hit and they were more than willing to support me in this venture pouring in pictures of any girls they thought had to be included.

Each picture would have 40 seconds to impress and make it to the collection otherwise it would end up in the second look folder. Not every picture brought in made it to my B list. Pics had to be of female, 17-30 years, Ugandan, little or no make up, No photoshop-ing, and nude pics. Marital status was not an issue at all.

For example, Hot as they are, these ladies stolen from somewhere in the inter webs & shown below would not make it to my collection



Some of the pictures would come from party/club shots, flicker, Hi5 and face book, yeah whenever they are weddings and girls night's out, you are bound to get lots of free pictures of beauties at your disposal readily posted on the net whatever your lens could not get.

It's a shame that I did not make a back up of my ladies collection (+ other stuff) when I moved to New York and yet I left my laptop behind thus, can not show a sample of some of the girls that made it. However, today while looking at some old email looking for a particular mail from an old friend, I saw an attachment targeted for my beauty list and the memories flowed back. One of the pictures had Racheal K and if I recall well, she was booed out of the list in further consultations.

The spirit has come back again! Am reopening the Pearl of Africa Beauties collection. There is no hidden agenda with the relaunch just some hope that one day I can be able to share my collection of some of Uganda's finest with the world. I already have almost 5 pictures on the new B list and even though I could go through the laborious process of combing through thousands of pictures on face book & my space (read the privacy policies) looking for outstanding comments, It would create some kinda bias so I'd appreciate to get some help from the blog sphere community.

So when you see that photo that deserves recognition and would do the world an injustice not to be in the B collection, holla at a brother. If you happen to be the type to walk around with a lens, make sure to get a shot if you see an aww aww.

I did get some more inspiration from this 640pixels site as I was waling through the inter webs. Brothers and some sister's would appreciate these portraits


Have a Splendid Week

Weekend Moods?

This Thursday was the graduation ceremony for the internship I recently completed. I must confess that generally, going for graduation ceremonies to me is like being told to dig and plant potatoes from dawn till dusk.

I've been to a few grad ceremonies and I often wonder what the point of sitting through the entire ordeal is. Not that am condemning them all entirely but why would there be need for a graduation ceremony for someone completing Nursery and Primary school.

Back to mine, although I was a bit late , It was good to see my peers and say final byes and best luck wishes. It was a bit shocking that I had to wait such a long time for my mum and sister to get ready. The event was at Midday and by 11 they had still not got their act together. I was done in less than 10 minutes. The big question for me is WHY DO LADIES TAKE A HUMONGOUS AMOUNT OF TIME GETTING READY FOR OCCASIONS?

There is nothing much to write about the ceremony. Saying that I enjoyed it would be an absolute lie. I did take some pictures but I liked this most....

Yay!!! that's me with the mountain dew can, but what I liked about this is that sculpture piece...I do like Art.

It's Friday!! and although this whole week has been like a weekend for me, am glad I can finally focus, pop the corn and settle down to complete some movies have waited patiently. In case you're wondering, this will be my movie marathon
  • Gothic
  • Eagle Eye
  • Hannibal
  • Hannibal Rising
  • Babylon A.D
  • City of Ember
  • Tropic Thunder
  • Perfume - The Story of a Murderer
  • 18Year Old Virgin
  • Igor
I still miss one movie to complete the list any recommendation?

What y'all be up to?


Great Weekend!!

My Neighborhood.

The View from my window sucks and anyhow, I rarely look out the window.
These pictures are some of my neighborhood surroundings I captured when I went out walking this afternoon in the cold sun.


As seen there is nothing much to do in such a quiet neighborhood. Fishing and Swimming in the bay is not allowed mbu because of national security. It's not such a great idea living near an international airport worse still if it's JFK but am getting used to the kick of it.

Life was more noisy, social and easier in this place, I'll always call home. There was always pig and kigele nearby. This is the only picture I could savage of the old place.

Games, Games and More Games

Its exactly one week since I laid down my tools and signed out of my internship. No I did not quit or get fired, the period just came to it's intended stop and I found my self free from any commitment or work.

What did I do with all the free time?
Unfortunately for me, I did not plan for what to do after I finished my Internship. The work and travel was just too stressing that I thought I'd get a short break before thinking about what to do to bring in some shs

The past one week has been rather too short. When you find yourself free, somehow the time you hoped to gain somehow get consumed. I thought was going to watch some of the movies I'd rented some time back but what I ended up doing did not give me chance to catch up on digital media. Yes am a PC

I luckily got for my self one of the most talked about games on market, Call of Duty - World at War, which has got me hooked like some drug.

The game is 100% addictive. I've never known myself to be a war person and used not to crave the Rambo, Chuck Norris and other war movies that seamed to dominate the Kibanda's and home theater but from level one I could not stop and found my self playing way into the night trying to finish the missions and advance.

It also has a multi-player mod that you could connect online and play with various people from allover the world which I've not yet had chance to utilise given my early experience in war affairs.

So far this is much better than the GTA IV that had some how become idle on my disk....

As seen, I did not step out of the house for a moment and did not have any blog post except this one to say Call of Duty Rocks..I'd recommend it for passing time enjoyably and getting some of that anger, adrenaline or what ever else gets at you out

V.Day weekend

I'd already had my day planned out for this lover's day. Being single, this was rather simple and uncomplicated seeing that I had no one to impress except myself -A rather easy feat I can accomplish with a blindfold and both hands tied.

I donned on a lime-green sweat shirt, my mum once bought for me after being span that green was my best color, and went off to the nearest Cinema from home which some 45 mins away by bus. I'd got tickets for Pink Panther 2 but later on changed my mind and went in for Taken. Much as I love Inspector Clouseau (Steve Martin), I thought a more macho movie like Taken would fit the occasion more and how right was I.

The Movie was totally awesome. It's been quite a while since I've watched an action movie I've greatly appreciated, well since body of lies, but back to Taken, there was quite a number of single-ish ladies in the room and the one I sat next to was some hot thing.

She's the reason I'll have to re-watch movie because when I said my hellos and allowed to share my popcorn, it was like she'd not come for the movie or had watched it before. Poor girl, some how I lost her number there was no way I could tell her sorry I can't take you home with me for at least another 2 years when maybe am ready to lose it.

Good News(At least for comic freaks):I did also see in the Cinema ads that finally Watch Men will be in theater's this March and only then will I feel inclined to again spend $8 for a movie ticket.

I spent almost my whole Sunday randomly. I got an unlimited one day card and took the train aimlessly. Somehow I ended up in Brooklyn and spent sometime window shopping. I even entered one of the closing Circuit City stores and was amazed and how people where fighting for stuff. Apparently because it's closing shop, all goods must go and thus will be sold at throw away prices.

If you want to sell stuff quick, just put up a closing soon sign, selling stuff at throw away claim, reduce the item amount very slightly and watch your stuff fly off the shelf. After over an hour in the store there was nothing that caught my eye. However in some other small time store, they had this point and shoot I could not resist it was about $240 and the sales guy had made me think leaving the store without it would be like throwing away a dream. In an attempt to search my pocket for money which I knew was not there thus escaping the purchase, I got my debit card in the shirt pocket. I was almost a week away from asking for a replacement card after searching for it in vain previously but the joy of seeing it made me the proud owner of a Casio EX-Z1200(in picture)

I foresee a spicier blog

PG 13! Say What, Say What

I recently upgraded my o.s to 64bit Vista Ultimate, threw in an anti virus internet suite that is agreed by many to be one of the best and activated the parental control

I was very amused and surprised when I could not open one of my favorite blogs and her story is here. This is evidence that she sure deserves an award for the sexiest Ugandan blog if it's content could make the internet security software horny.

The real story
Apparently, Kaspersky did a quick heuristic analysis of all the posts in the blog and thought that the materials contained might not be conducive for the young ones and further exposure to the contents may lead to premarital babies and as such should be rated and blocked.

What else it reported I will not write down to avoid my blog getting in bad books but all those sexy pictures, virgins and baby father's are some of the 65% unsuitable content on Cheri's blog.

This was very funny and I had a good laugh but I had to kill off the parental control even though it was at the lowest of levels.

I love the blogs unrated withall the pornographic and erotic material so keep em coming.

Surviving V-Day Alone

For some of us, this Valentines will probably mean nothing more than a normal casual day especially when you have no significant better half or missing rib to max with.

Valentine’s Day has turned out as a special day to mostly celebrate romantic relationships. However the truth is much as you try to ignore all the Love around you, you can’t help but fill empty and bored while everyone else is having a blast.

So here’s a list of my 14 ideas which I’ll share with my fellow single thugs and ladies, who've not made any reservations for that day.

1. Dress up in a completely different theme. The traditional color for this day is red and black. Be different and fish out those yellow, green, lime and the other colors from you wardrobe you’d not normally be found wearing. This will certainly set you apart from the crowd.

2. Call up those other single homies and(or) pals. You are not alone, am sure scrolling through your phone book, you can come up with at least 3 friends who are also alone. They’ll be more than happy to get out of there misery and join you on a rampage of the town. So go ahead and holler at you peeps and invite them out on a singles night out.

3. Do not call any of your family member’s. Sure much as you might want to deceive yourself and believe that this day is all about love, calling your mum or dad to say that you love them and that they are your Valentine is a disappointment to the old folk. They’ll really feel sad that there beloved daughter or son could not think of any other person except them. So do not subject them to this pain rather let them assume that you are having a blast and fun time out there with your better half.

4. Indulge yourself in what you desire most. Hit that pork joint and ask for 5kg’s all for yourself. There is no greater satisfaction that having a great treat for you. If you are the sweet tooth type, get all the chocolates and candy you can afford and go spoil yourself. eating a whole bucket of ice cream would cool a lot of things for you.

5. Rent a movie or go out to watch one. Round up some of your single friends for a movie night on this day. Do not make yourselves more miserable by watching the romantic type movies, rather make the theme strictly horror, thriller or comedy and you’ll be surprised at how much you’ll forget about being alone.

6. Read a story book/novel. I do not have much to add here, being not so much of an ardent reader, will keep me away from recommending any material for valentine. On second though reading might be too demanding and stressful rather, instead look out for one of those free food and drink events. Many people desire a wedding on Feb 14th so on this given day, they'll be over 100 receptions for you to freely make an appearance and enjoy to your fullest and no this is not considered gatecrashing but a necessary voluntary service that the hosts usually expect.

7. Play a game. Now with the numerous games out there, one can never run out of an idea for a game. Monopoly would be a good choice if some friends are coming over with bottles and brown paper bags, almost everyone has a pack of playing cards which come in handy for such days. Playing PC games also makes that time run so there is really much to choose from if you'll be gaming.

8. Go to work. Feb 14th is considered a national holiday and this might just be the right time to finish off a deal you’d been putting off. Look around for people who are in need of babysitting service and make your day busy while earning.

9. Do a selfless thing. For example, go for a charitable event. It would not only be a great cause and satisfaction to go for a soup kitchen or visit the sick in hospital to encourage and pray for them but also get points for your self along the way.

10. Bath. You might also consider taking that long needed bubble bath, while other people are busy getting dirty and spoiling their bodies, the 2 hours in the bath will leave you sparkling clean for a week, A good thing for the thugs.

11.Mischief. It might not be a good thing but when you are really, really still miserable; doing some mischief might be some kinda fun. Go to a place where they are couples and make a scene. Also prank calling the police, a restaurant or other busy place might not be the best idea but it’s completely understandable if you find yourself doing this.

12. Clean up your room. This is not a viable option for all but for the few who only get in to sleep and throw stuff around, this free time might actually give you a chance to stay in and do some house cleaning. You’ll certainly gain more than twice in health, spending money and finally finding that lost important piece of stuff.

13. Go enjoy with the bed. You do not have to be the lazy type, as most people would think rather this is also a wonderful opportunity to catch up with sleep. Nothing beats an early start to bed where you can dream away your sorrow and loneliness.

14. Take a risk. If all can’t work, contact that person you’ve had your eye on for sometime and you’ve not yet made any move even though you know they are single. Make up some excuse of wanting some company and talk them out of whatever they are doing to have just 30 minutes of anything that you cook up. Never know this might be the chance you finally hook up.

Happy Valentines!

A Waste of Time

We've all sat down and watched a movie till the end and then asked ourselves what have I been watching? how come I did not pass out and doze?

Well the last movie I watched gave me this kind of feeling. It was an Anime and if you have not yet heard about my love for anime, now you can and I'll let it be known that I'd steal to watch them.

So I download this anime movie from amazon to let pass time, I donno why I even choose it in the first place from all the other animation movies but I think it must have been it's price which was so affordable that I did not bother to wonder why it was that cheap.

The movie am talking about has the great and mighty (to some) Samuel L. Jackson. Somehow, I've failed to appreciate this guy's movies ever since his scene in Coming to America...and if you can recommend any movie you liked with this dude as the main character, I'll pay handsomely.

Back to the story, the culprit movie was Afro Samurai - Resurrection. It's about some,......I do not even want to bother taking about it just do a google search if you want to know what it's about.

After the movie, I thought whoever made it must have totally been nuts. Making an African(American) a Samurai warrior does not do any justice to the black man. It's just like trying to make an elephant mate with a chicken and some things just never click.

I warn you, if you do go ahead to watch, be prepared to get waste your money, time and finally bored. It's a movie to put if you want to revenge on a friend for making you feel bad once upon a time.

For all Anime Lovers Resident Evil IV a must watch -well If you don't mind some gross stuff.

Am currently reading Douglas Adam's HHGTTG a very interesting read especially on the bus where it's o.k to burst out laughing. Am fighting off the temptation to watch the movie, which has DJ Honda a.k.a Mos Def, whom I already like, cast as Ford Prefect. I've stolen a few peeks at some bits of the movie and although a 2005 movie, I'd definitely recommend it for anyone who wants a fun movie night.

Winding off, I only have less than 2 days of my internship and I've only learnt about 6 Chinese words, shame I'll be moving on but I so much need a small break from work..every one deserves a vacation once in a while -Right?

Am Well!

They say, the seconds before you die, your whole life flashes in front of you. well a least that's how most books and movies put it.

The past few hours on my sick bed were filled with memories of my childhood and and sometimes a dark cloud seamed to hover over me, I would then quickly open my eyes expecting to see a dark hooded figure with a rather long shiny sickle except he was not going to harvest any grain crop.

This figure was always not there and this would make me calm again. Yes you see I believe that the grim reaper really does exist and when I told my sister about my bad dreams/hallucinations she mentioned that it was just the pain mixing up my cerebrum and making me experience what most people would call near death experiences and thinking about it, I've had quite a number of them.

Am also a firm believer in self healing and allowing the body regenerate itself and fight off any infection so despite all the pleas and begging from close ones about going to the hospital for treatment, my inner self refused and only accepted to take a couple of advil's and take solitude in my room and meditate/pray.

Well I did get up on Tuesday feeling perfectly normal. Whatever was bothering me is completely gone and seams for a long time. I did not have to go see any Doctor and am glad I stood my ground. Although it feels like a month, it's only for 72 hours that I felt really sick.

If you believe in yourself and trust God then He'll always be there to see you through the hard times and I give him credit for making me well again.

Thanks for all the prayers and encouragement...and yes no worries I'll still proberbly be going for a full physical some time soon just to make sure am still in good shape.

For the moment am taking regular exercise and rest more seriously.

It Sucks

My whole weekend was wasted nursing some illness that came so suddenly and vigorously.

It's quite a shame that my long awaited chill weekend was filled with pain..pain allover my head to such an extent I thought it would explode.

I hate hospitals and doctor's(not the person) that's why it was out of the question...

I was secretly wishing it was Malaria, it would be very easy to self diagnose and my body reacts rather well with a little help from the single dose Metakelfin, but for the moment I'll try to wait and fight off whatever is causing the headache, there is even no fever or weakness

Eventually the pain forced me to take some pain killers(with scary possible side-effects) and hopefully they work....I still do kinda feel crappy.

I have no idea whatever I have but hope I get better to avoid that visit to doctor.

Have a great week!

Driving...Part 1

Everyone expects me to be able to drive myself by now but alas I still do not know how to help myself in case you gave me your car keys. It's so bad that I can't even manage an automatic which people say drives it's self, of course I do not believe this because I remember once siting in my neighbour's automatic for almost 30 mins and the thing did not even move an inch despite all the honking I did.

So this morning when I found myself at the DMV offices, I felt I should try out the theory test for my permit. This was so abrupt and I was inclined to take the test as a first step to overcoming my driving phobia.

I swear the test was not even that long or difficult but what do those road signs actually meant? I once did SST and road signs where such a walk over. who does not know what a zebra crossing is and that red on the traffic light means stop?

In the end, my test results could not qualify me for the next step -getting a learner's driving permit. I was not really so disappointed at least I passed 14 questions and the consolation I have is I'd not really planned to do the test and it just happened simultaneously.

The American signs are somehow different from the normal ones am used to, wait, I don't even remember seeing or noticing any road signs during some of my rides in Kampala (being interested in).

I was given a book to go and read such that I can educate myself more about the road system and then come back for the test. I'll look at that book some time when am read to go start learning till then, driving is not a priority at the moment.

Props for those who have obtained their driving license, it's actually not easy like I'd thought.

How do you people manage driving? How did you win over the fears?

TGIF

It's that Last day of the month, and a Friday, everyone should be looking forward to some serious fun this weekend.

Unfortunately for some of us, the pay comes in bi-weekly and the next pay check is another week away. There goes my Friday plans where I was hoping to hit the streets of Manhattan for some inspiration and maybe even watch Underworld3 - Rise of the Lycans which is so cool and deserves a re-watch on big screen.

I did not know this before coming to NY but Friday is a much respected day this side, they do not mind if you dress down to work which means you can pull out those jeans, tees and sneakers to go with to work. Even cooler, you only do half day. Now who am I to disobey such?

It has been such a hectic week for me and there is not much for me to do today(read I don't feel like working), and I'd not even planned to write what you've just read. My intended post was imagined on the bus but somehow it vanished just like that.

So I'll spend Friday evening looking for my debit card which is somehow lost in the mess that my room has become and then go swimming in ice water with other crazy guys on Saturday. I do wish some PIG would somehow fit in there but I've not yet seen one of those places with that specialty.

What does one do in NY on a boring Friday?

This weekend is a long one. What will you be doing with that cash?

Marriage? No ways

This morning, I was chatting with a friend of mine who recently got married and I was complementing him on how lucky he was to be enjoying all the benefits of marriage.

He sent me an email which I just had to share with all the single guys and those who are looking forward to making those vows. Beware......

Marriage is not a word. It's a sentence (a life sentence)

Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her masters.

A married life is full of excitement and frustrations. In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the NEIGHBOURS listen.

Getting married is very much like going to the restaurant with friends. You order what you want, and when you see what the other fellow has...you wish you had ordered that instead.

There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced!

Love is one long sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock.

When a newly married man looks happy, we know why. But when a 10-year married man looks happy, we wonder, why?

When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

Marriage is a man and woman become one. The trouble starts when they try to decide which one.

At a cocktail party, one woman said to another...AREN'T YOU WEARING YOUR RING ON THE WRONG FINGER? The other replied, YES, I AM, I MARRIED THE WRONG MAN.

A Man is incomplete until he gets married, then he is finished.

It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up with the same boss.

When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can only be sure of one thing -Either the car is new or the wife is.


Disclaimer. This is just to make you laugh, marriage can be a good thing if u MAKE IT.
STILL UNMARRIED? Do not be that scared. Marriage is better than waking up next to an empty pillow

Obama Inauguration

Today is a beautiful and historical day not only for me but millions of others who've been dreaming with King.

This is a day that makes America different from any other modern nation. For the 1st time in the American History, and the 43rd time in their history, the power of the Presidency will be passed to a multi-racial black man peacefully, respectfully and full of hope for a better change.

Here is the Man of the day stepping into currently the hardest Job in the world


Certainly, I strongly believe that "our man" President Barack Obama has it within his power and his skills to lead the American Nation to prosperity and growth

Am so inspired and encouraged by the events around me and I make a call, "Let's Make History" together and keep working knowing that, in the end, hard work and dreams always pay off.

Of Bus Rides

I have never had such a super fast week before, only just yesterday it was Sunday and to think it's already Saturday amazes me. This obviously implies that I've been super busy and almost forgot I had my virtual life and blog to catch up with...

Whatever I was doing the rest of those days, I can't write about because it's way too much and would eventually turn out lengthy and boring but to continue with my post,

I take on average 4hrs going to and fro work using the bus. Using the subway would increase the trip by another two hours. Yes It's that far and no matter what magic, I always have to use at least two buses. It's so hectic that I wanted to quit the first week I'd started work but seeing my internship ends in Feb, I decided to persevere with hope of getting used to the distance.

Of late, the trip has become more treacherous. With the temperatures in negatives, It's not funky waiting for the bus. With the current rate I spend a minimum of $20/ week for fare, the recent plans for a price increase have me on my knees for a disaster in these plans. You see, there are no these things of secretly signaling to the conductor in case you are hard up, wait there is even no conductor just some mean metallic thing that chews up your quarters without any remorse. I suddenly miss those taxi touts that would make your day calling you boss and escort you to your ride like some VIP, not forgetting the driver who'll go through hell to beat the Jam and get where you want.

These bus things are just not nice. They are not as plentiful as the kla kamunye's and If you miss one bus, be sure of a long wait for the next one. They are so mean and won't pick or let you off at any point unless it's the designated bus stop. The kamunye driver will pick you at any point of the road and even leave you at the kasasiro as requested all you have to do is say the magic words.

Am still to get used to this commuting system. One culture in particular is the bus-subway reading club which given my bus hours, I've not yet subscribed to..I just don't see myself drawing out a book and then reading away like my life depended on the contents -Tht's what those book worm people do and they are not a lively bunch.

So the bus rides leaves me nothing to do except to sometimes node away to my zicky and eavesdrop on the neighbors. The stories in the bus are too hilarious and some shocking. Some people are just not bothered about washing their dirty stuff in public, but I'll stick to the rule, what happens in the bus stays in the bus otherwise these would have been a renewable source of k.b and gossip to keep bullocks at bay.

A great place to also make plans and think about random stuff is yes the bus. Trust there is no other place I can get chance to reflect and think about how my stuff is flowing, which move I should make or what my next post should be about. I've created thousands of fantasies and posts during the journeys but like they say good things don't last, they all evaporate away when I step out of the bus into the cruel, bitter cold.

Masoawo!! Oh crap! all the stares from other passengers make me feel like some kind of nut job. Thinking about Kamunye's must h've made me forget to instead push the stop request button, but am not the only one at this stop and I quickly jump off to rush home before the stares kill me.

PS: This is not a complaint or an advert

Run Away Words

I have Bullocks.

Most of you might know it as bloggers' block. This I came up with from actress Sandra Bullock who I so much loath but the bloggers' block is stolen from writer's block that effects writers. Since am currently not a writer, I can easily replace that bit was with bloggers'.


After the new year, there has been lots of stuff and some exciting drama in my life and I've seen things that are worth sharing and talking about.
As such, I should have tons to write about and update my readers but whenever I sit down to start writing, nothing comes out and all the words evaporate my mind faster than you could say post.


So just to say until I can catch up with those run away words, I'll be looking around for some drug to help in this area.


Have a Great Week!!
