Totally off topic, one of my homeboys is on a quest to find a girlfriend in 30 days (no idea why). He's a fine boy (naija fine boy I hope that isn't, 6ft 3 inches (or something in that vicinity), and lives in NY. All suggestions welcome.
Mrs Nanny has finally exited the building, no replacement yet but still looking...

Kpuff Milestone/Mrs Nanny/Equal Opportunity Employment

Kpuff went to a daycare/creche/playgroup (depending on what part of the world you're in) today for the first time in her life, it was actually more difficult than I thought it would be. I picked her up 2 hours earlier than I was supposed

Going to the creche wasn't planned, Mrs. Nanny hasn't shown up for work for 2 straight days and hasn't called either. I'm not even angry cause there's no point, I'll just pay her off whenever she decides to show up.

LM, I called the agency you recommended for a replacement yesterday but Mrs C. is out of the country so her assistant Joan is working on it, I'll let you guys know how it goes. Speaking of which when I called and was going over my criteria with them, they wanted to know if I had preference for any specific ethnicity. I always feel uncomfortable when I'm asked this, I'm scared someone is going to pop out of somewhere and call me seriously, why should it make a difference?

I find it weird that people put their age, sex, local government area and marital status and God knows what else on their resumes, I mean for most jobs all that information is completely irrelevant. Plus, it definitely leads to discriminatory hiring practices.


Yesterday I noticed a new word was added to Kpuff kpuff's ever expanding 5 coherent word vocabulary. Introducing, "rah rah" ==

Have any of you guys got tickets to the ThisDay music festival yet? I just called someone who works at a GTB on allen and he said they haven't the tickets yet, huh? isn't this event supposed to be this weekend?. Anyway naija for you.

I have been down with a terrible cold so I didn't do much this weekend, went to News Cafe on Sunday for drinks though with Mr. it was ok, but the smoke in there was killing me. I swear they need to ban smoking indoors like they do in NY, it's just crazy.

Kpuff kpuff is finally saying mama in reference to me (siiiiigh), and she says it in this really tush oyinboyish way


So recently I've been thinking of moving out of Nigeria again...(gasp!!!), just thinking ok? I know I was so excited to move here, and I'm still excited to be here, but the security issues just kill me, I mean nothing has happened to me and my family, but it's just scary, I swear I am so nervous every time I have to drive out by myself, I've gotten used to the aggressive driving, but every time I see brake lights ahead, or I see someone reversing I freeze and wonder if I should be reversing too. What kind of sufferhead is this?
