100th post

My long suffering BV'S who love me no matter what.
Abi I dey tell lie?
No abi!
Oya come and collect hugs and kisses.
Muah! Muah! Muah!
Love you guys a lot.
P.S! Those kisses were for una cheeks oh.
Anyone who raised his/her lips is on his/her own. Lol.

 Ehn/ehn! Before we get to the business of the day, how did you spend Valentines day?And where are my presents? I thought you guys liked me ehnn?
That Saturday,I went down my street oh and out of laziness i decided to take a cab home even though i could have just strolled down. Just N20 cab for you to know how short the distance was. That was how i entered one 419 cab oh or should i say cab with 419 guys inside.
You know those cabs where everyone inside is in on the scam?
Barely had i entered that the driver and a passenger started talking about lots of money in the booth of the car and how they needed to verify it.

I didnt wait to hear more lest they kuku decide to kidnap me.
God Forbid! Kia!kia! i got down oh and raced to my house.
In short that was how i spent my Valentines day at home.
I wasn't even interested in leaving the house again. Biko!i still dey too young.
But i know you guys had more fun than me sha!

Soooooooooooooooo! Today is blogger and BV Esther's Birthday. She said she is 456 years old but she looks 18 to me.
So guys let's wish her a happy birthday.
Happy Birthday sweetheart!

My wish for you is that all your dreams (especially those big big ones that you can't even say out loud) come true.
Love you and thanks for all your support.

(If she hadn't been so impatient to come and see this world and drink free breast milk we could have been birthday mates) .lol.
Ok! I am exaggerating. More than a week separates us.
Nevertheless we March babies rock. 15th March loading..

I am so excited.
This is the 100th post for this blog.
Yay! I am officially a blogger now.
 And I am glad I didn't rush into arriving at this 100th post threshold. It sort of has more meaning for me sha.
And its all thanks to you! Yes you! Why are you looking back nah?
Its you now! No one but you. My loyal BVs who are the real MVP'S.
This blog has come such a long way from the 4 pageviews and one comment( almost always Harper) days. The day i mentioned it to  Vira she laughed and laughed.
But seriously!i have never been a page view freak. So far someone is turning up,i am good.

So lets have a little Blog report( i feel like a M.D giving annual report to the shareholders).
This blog's most viewed posts are ;



One odd thing that i have noticed since starting this blog is that the posts with the most comments/views aren't necessarily the ones you work on the most.
It's just something i have noticed.
Sometimes, some posts just strike a chord for some reason.
We have had the most page views from people in;

Lets gist.

    Just how sinful is a box of chocolates? You may never know until the doctor asks you to shed a few pounds and you end up sneaking a piece into your mouth. Guilty pleasures are things we enjoy and consider pleasurable despite feeling guilt; This guilt is often because of fear of others discovering our lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, rather than moral guilt. There are things we do but don't talk to anyone about. If we really like doing something, we shouldn't feel guilty about it right? So what are yours? Here are five guilty pleasures a lot of us indulge in: READ MORE 5 GUILTY PLEASURES

    1. Babe!its due mostly to lack of time.
      Not time to write but time to be in the zone and write properly. I don't like writing rushed/forced posts or posts that don't sound like me.

      Hmm! V got to read that chocolate post.

  2. Congrats on your 100th post darling- can I say that I'm a massive fan?

      I will soon start making your comments into posts. Ok I am kidding.
      Ehn ehn!Let me not lie,i didn't hear anything. I did notice from your blog that something was wrong sha. I guess I just thot you two will sort it out.
      Yeah! That post! For obvious reasons it isn't my best,but it was cathartic for me.
      It helped me move on and all the feelings it evoked are almost over.
      Thanks Duru. I am proud of you too.
      For your lack of pride,and just for being you.
      For all the washing. Thanks.
      Knowing you as a BV was great but connecting with you as a person was one of the high points of 2014. Sometimes I think it was divinely orchestrated for stuff like that to bring us close.
      And Amen.

The woman came up a story about millions of naira she stole from her abusive husband...driver decides to save her only if she agrees to share the money with him... driver asks the three passengers at the back (including me) who wants part of the share...Moby ran out of the cab and even asks for a refund of her fare...i cant come and die in Lagos na...hahaha... Congratulations huni....

      I got home and was like I should have even talked and pointed out how daft the story was.
      My mum was like that would have been worse because once you talk you get hypnotized.
