Daddy Found My Blog & I’m thankful

So yes u read me right – my dad found my blog – o my days I nearly shit for pant, when I got the text in the morning, telling me he found it and liked it except I shouldn't talk so much about my future, after which he proceeds to back it up with scriptural verses( which I haven't read still, please don't tell him, lol)- but as a big girl now, I handled it well – I just told him he is not allowed to read it ever again – knowing my dad, that's just story – the man is so funny, he likes that I can write about any topic and he goes "o my friend who is a writer said to send him some of what you have done, for a possible position" lol – he is cool people for real – I actually closed the blog for like a day, cos I didn't know what to do (did anyone notice?) but I realized knowing my dad, he already read all 50+ posts before sending the text, so nothing to hide – so he gets to read about everything I write if he so chooses from sex, to politics, to sports, relationships, anything personal or otherwise, even when it's about him. I love my dad, what can I say?

Btw, I am so sorry for not putting up a post since Monday, popsy found the blog on Tuesday I think, I closed it that day, and was going to post sumn once my holidays started on Thursday but just got really busy. Men, Houston can suck u dry o, every other day there is a wedding, baby shower, birthday something, I tell u I am going to sit my butt home by force or by fire this month of December coming, I already feel like I am known and u know ur girl don't do that – I like being behind the scenes – speaking of which one old man, I swear he is old enuff to be my dad was trying to chat me up yesterday (actually followed me to the bathroom), can u imagine? Then he is going to say can you hug me please? I'm like sorry sir but no – as in hey I wanted to die though, cos some old women and men were passing by greeting him & looking at me – more reason for me to sit my butt home in Dec. men…plus its cold in this zones men, really thought it will still be sunny until at least January – and tell me y, mosquitoes keep feasting on my body from my face to feet everywhere(bf mum says it's something about me being portable & having sweet blood) men ko funny jo

So I really hate to hear "Boyfriend is not husband" or vice versa – like for real what does that mean? Does that give me a right to go take another girls man, cos I think he is not the man for me? – I get the whole "don't put all your eggs in one basket bit" believe me I know(but that's story for another time) but I just think that's a selfish, and stupid thing to say or principle to live by – but what I like about life is that karma is a bitch, that goes hard – enuff said

So my Naija and Yankee folks, how was your long holiday? Hope you enjoyed it & all – mine was busy attending functions I had no business attending really – but I also volunteered, which was pretty cool, and hung out with my boy – Mr. Banko – from Canada, and with limlim, who came in from school in Indiana- so that was nice and some good good food (I will tell you that my tummy is swollen, although that seems to have been the case for about a month now, but u will probably tell me I have body image issues) – nways in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I have to share with you the reasons I am thankful – and I hope you really took the time to do that – I think Nigeria needs to create such a day, things might make a difference in that country as such – so here we go in no particular order

I'm Thankful

I'm so thankful for God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, I could not even tell you where my life will be otherwise & I pray you all know him personally, especially those of you that don't know him now

I'm thankful for the air I breathe, that I can walk, type, see even if it's with glasses, that I am just 5'2 and look 16 still, for a face that can let my do any hairstyle, for my swollen tummy even with all the workout and eating right

I'm thankful for the love of family, even through it all, he has kept us happy and healthy and keeps providing for us, for a job and for me being able to give of my very own first paycheck(pls remember always to give your tithe and your first fruit-which is the complete first paycheck)

I'm thankful for the best friends anyone could ever wish for – if it were a contest I can promise you that I would win hands down, cos I have ride & die friends – I would name names but no space – they know themselves, I try to tell them how much they mean to me frequently – but regardless I love you always

I'm thankful for blogsville – you could never know what you mean to me, your support, your feedback- Myne, Mr Jegede, Roc, Cerebrus, Tisha, Tricia, Bagucci, David, Sugarking, Fabulola, all the anonymous– ok, this won't work – I couldn't name you all, esp cos there are some of you who never comment but I know are steady reading – I'm so thankful to God for you

I'm thankful that I take the bus to work, that I always have food to eat, that I haven't collected my degree yet & was able to still work, that I am done with school, that I'm in Houston, that I can't go to Naija this xmas, for long natural nails and nice legs

I'm thankful for each of my siblings, they are the reason I strive to be the very best, and for the best mother in the world hands down, and my very funny daddy - that I am single still and not lonely, that I haven't done the do for almost a year now, that my "assets" have grown, that I can never find clothes for my weirdly shaped body

I'm thankful cos I have no reason to be in the hospital ever, and not had to see the dentist for a while, that Arsenal & Giants are my teams even though they occasionally suck, for my love of shoes, for the ability to tweet (allowing me to say some major random ish) and even more so for blackberry, for humor group and the Christian group on there

I'm thankful for my extended family, for past and present teachers & mentors, past & present churches and pastors, for everyone I have ever met, for Music (which I think he specially created because of me), for older friends and new friends who have taken to me and been very supportive & encouraging and helpful, for skype and the internet in general- and so many things I am sure I am forgetting

I am just so thankful & filled with joy & peace – my parents knew what there were doing when they named me with names that all have joy in it – cos I am truly blessed & happy and I sincerely wish you all the same – the kind of joy that removes all kinds of sorrow & tears

Nways with that said – wishing you all a very F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S week ahead, one without no stress and only testimonies – I will be doing a whole special on one particular artist tomorrow – so please come back – although I suspect it will be late- PEACE

p.s I Love you
