Tags and Hugs

Before I begin, I want to say thanks to my 'brethren' who keep on checking up on me. I really, really, really appreciate this. Love to you all.

While I have been 'absent', My dear powerhouse Simply Mee gave me an award. Thank you my sister.

I'm sure you guys know the love I have for this woman so I will not bore you with the respect I have for this woman. Let me just say I have the utmost respect for her because she is not afraid to say 'This is me...No sugar coating...No Effizy.....No Pretence !!' Love it !!

Anyway, the award requires me to......
#1 Post the rules
#2 Post 11 things about myself.
#3 Answer the questions that my tagger posted for me
#4 Create 11 questions, then choose 11 people and tag them to answer your questions.
#5 Remember to let them know you tagged them.
#6 No tag backs.
#7 Let the tagger know when you answered their questions.

11 Things about myself:
- I prefer the company of very old and very young people. They are less judgmental and appreciate life more
- I find men easier to deal with
- I am really mischievous and I constantly find humour in most situations, Indeed, I believe I have a resident comedian in my head LOL
- I cant stand lateness especially when it is habitual
- I am really organised
- I dont like doing things half heartedly. I believe that if you are going to do something, do it properly......always give your all
- I cannot stand liars
- I cannot stand people who flaunt their wealth or status
- I avoid judging people because I know I am flawed
- I love to dance
- I feel younger now than I felt when I was 21

Here are my answers to my sister's questions:
1)What hairstyle are you currently rocking?.......At the moment, its pulled back in a little bun. My hair is natural but I use weave-on from time to time. 
2)How long did you spend in primary school?.....I spent six years
3)What is your naughtiest moment ?......I have soooo many. Okay, here's one: when I was little, I loved to outwit my mum. One Christmas eve, me and my sisters wanted some of the fried meat and my mum refused. We stole some and hid it in our hair. LOL Please dont judge me! LOL 

Heres another - My dad didnt like us drinking fizzy drinks but I often took sprite or seven up and poured it into a cup ...and had it on the dinning table with my meal. My dad never knew! LOL
4)How do you express your anger?.......I go really quiet because I avoid speaking in anger. It also allows me think how best to deal with the issue. 
5)What would you spend your last penny on?......A good meal and a good book 
6)When was the last time you treated yourself to a niceeeeeee warm food?...Today. I made nice pepper soup with catfish and chicken. We had it with pounded yam! :)
7) Who was the last person you said  "I love you " to? ........My sons as they left for bed a minute ago.
8) What is your favourite take away dish?.......I have to choose Nigerian: Suya and Foreign: Chinese - Mixed seafood (scallops, mussels, prawns, squid in oyster sauce) and egg fried rice. Tooooo good.
9) How do you eat in public, spoon, knife, fork or hands, loud, quiet, slow, fast etc?....Knife and fork. Really slow because I'm often talking to someone....LOL 
10)Do you polish your shoes? ....Definitely. I like to be 'on point' LOL
11)What are your thoughts on after Life
?....As a Catholic, we believe in Heaven as the ultimate destination after death. However, I do believe there have been instances of reincarnation and that the world is full of unexplained mysteries. For example I have had dreams that have seen the future. The only way to find out what is on the 'other side' is to die. I rather not..... so, I feel we should be kind to each other because nobody really knows for certain what happens when we die.  

That's done !!

Unfortunately, I cant tag anyone because I think practically everyone has done this. Hope you dont mind.

Instead, could I please ask readers to respond to this:
List Three things that you like about yourself........and Three things you dont.

See you soon.... I promise to post on Monday.

  9. Your answer to question number two is hilarious! Meat in ur hair? Lwkmd
    Things I like about myself; my disposition, my ability to make people laugh, my pink gums.
    Dislikes about myself; I react too quickly when I am upset, my extra large hips and the texture of my hair.

    1. *Smile* @ 'my pink gums' They must look really healthy!!
      *Shock* at 'dislike extra large hips'...I dont think you realise the 'fixed assets' you are carrying LOL
      Haba..please oh. Those are beauties
      Thanks for dropping by

    2. *covers face* people always say that but one of the cons is that i don't have a perfect dress or a suit size and that, is very frustrating!!!!

  10. & she's back. Welcome back NIL. Missed you much. I intended to tag you too *pout* anyways, love your answers.

    Things I love: my free spirit, courage & ability to laugh @ anything including myself.
    Things I dislike: my impatience & restlessness

    @Atoskin, u dislike ur extra large hips ke? C dis babe o

    1. Thanks dearie
      Please dont pout oh. Abeg LOL
      Loving your ability to laugh at yourself. Me too!
      I dont think you should dislike your can be a catalyst for action.
      RE: Atoskin....abi? LOL
      Hope all is well with you

    2. @ toin: sadly i do, it just makes certain things difficult!

  11. Good to see you're back!

    3 things I like about myself:
    1. my penchant for hard work;
    2. my ability to withstand social/peer pressure;
    3. my ability to endure and suffer long (even though I typically would prefer luxury and bliss and not be a "sufferhead", but I don see life!)

    3 things I don't like about myself:
    1. impatience (Father, deliver me from this vice);
    2. perfectionism, a.k.a. OCD (I need to learn that I can function in an untidy house; that the heavens won't collapse if mistakes happen in life...)
    3. feeding my family but not always remembering to eat enough as I should, which makes it difficult to achieve the voluptuousness I have always craved as a child :) On the flip side, oyibos think my body is cool (which tells you the society needs help!)

    1. I'm loving your ability to withstand peer pressure....A rare quality
      LOL @ ability to suffer long. That is deeeeep! :)

      I like the things you mentioned as 'dislikes'
      I'm with you re: No 2
      Definitely not with you re: No 3. I am over voluptuous LOL
      Yes oh..these oyinbo get issues sha....but the truth is that your frame means you are quite healthy.
      Hope all is well with you

  12. Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! Happy to read from you again!
    Thanks for posting again.

    3 things I like about myself:
    - Don't know how to nurse grudges
    - Make friends easily
    - Knows how to dance

    3 things I don't like:
    - Could be lazy and easily overwhelmed with details
    - Sleep late everytime :-( (It's 1am already)
    - Keeping in touch

    1. Thanks Michael
      Hope all is well with you
      I love that you make friends easily...That is not an easy skill

      I feel you re: 'overwhelmed with details'

    3 things I like about myself:
    a.I'm confident and positive, I dont believe anything is too difficult/tasking or impossible.
    b.I dont need anyone to make me happy, my humour veins are always in overdrive, even when it seems things arent going as planned
    c.My body - everything's in the right proportion teheheh

    3 things I dont like:

    b.The switch to shy-mode everytime I have to eat in public!
    c.Lastly, i think im becoming too independent!

    1. The boys dey kampe my sistah.
      How far?
      I love your humour and positive body image. Mwahh

      *scratching my head* re 'too independent'
