Today ooooo

Hi all,

Friends, lovers and bloggers. I am sick! My weight loss program has been derailed by yours truly before it even started. Made meat pies yesterday and had some. Hmmm.... I went for a walk in the cold this morning even with my sore throat. I think that should count for something. I am aiming to be 157lbs by Saturday.

I got a job yesterday as a mental health associate at a  behavioral health center. I like euphemisms. The lady who interviewed me said they needed more pple like me. Okay o.  I'm just happy it's not an $8 an hr job. I think i should be more appreciative and thank God but i was kind of sad yesterday. They had a variety fest on saturday at my school and i saw pictures of my classmates dressed in their costumes or whatever. It made me sad sha, but i got over it. No use being sad for too long cos it's not going to change anything.

Even with my bastardly sore throat, i have a craving for fried yams......... and egg stew. It's going to be 8 yrs this yr, yet it feels like i left Nigeria yesterday. Time is flying faster than i would like.

Question of the day. What does being cultured mean to u? Someone told me i wasn't cultured today and i felt very insulted. Never mind, he said he was joking. I didn't find it funny and i am still pissed at him. When person too play, na the result be this.

    Cultured? What did you do and which culture are we talking about? American, Nigerian, European?

    A French will say an African is uncultured for using hands to eat, the Chinese will say the English are uncultured for eating with metal and the Aborigines will say the American is uncultured for not living close to nature.
