Home sweet home

I'm back in Lagos, it feels like I have been away so much longer than two months. Theres never electricity during the day but PHCN (Power Holding Company of Nigeria) decides not to hold on to the power during the evenng and the nights so I can't complain, at least the diesel consumption is reduced.

Olawunmi's party was fun...and I met bloggers who didn't introduce themselves as bloggers.....so sneeeaakkkyyy lol. It was nice to meet you guys regardless :). Next time I'll know though. You know who you are! It was nice to meet you too Ronti.

This weekend is the Thisday show, I will try to give you guys a blow by blow account if I go. Let me go before PHCN decides they don't want to be so generous this morning..our UPS has seen better days.

My question for today is....why are all the men engaged lol? This trend is worrying.

Dimples said...

LOL...Good to know u had a safe trip...and is having loads of fun..well less the electricty...

Lovely as usual seeing u over the weekend...fine babe TMinx..anyways to the question @ hand....don't know..but isn't that better than their old ways of being single/married and jumping from one chic to another....so that means the word "COMMITMENT" is ringing in their ears now.

Most of them r not really engaged they just say it 2 feel among.

A Kel called Wonder ...... said...

Welcome back. Any more beach partiees?

I was at a fab wedding last weekend and yep all where engaged or married, my friend was wondering same too. I guess the non engaged ones were not just her type! Maybe.

~Mimi~ said...

because its that time to get engaged in this generation...so everyone is getting hooked...

grab your copy nowwwwwww! LAWLIN

AbujaBabe said...

Glad your Back In Lagos safe and sound :)

lol @ all the men are engaged

Ciao..xx

Miss Opeke said...

All men may be hooked but life is a competition...I am not going to break a home to get a man but I will surely get the man that is meant for me...
When it is time for you to settle down, you will start seeing the unengaged one...in fact, it is them that will be looking for you...

Bluntremi said...

I am sure naija is happy tpo have you back as well!!!
You look BEAUTIFUL!!!
I read the true life article and couldn't be more thrilled for you!! Who knows what will come of it!!
I am sorry that I havent visited in awhile...its been hectic to say the least!!!

zaiprincesa said...

showtie, be happy and grateful if they even admit that they are "engaged"...most of the ones i meet claim they r "single" until they are actually married, engaged or not.
Have fun in Lagos...

Ugo Daniels said...

Quest: why are all the 'eligible' men engaged?

Ans: cos the earliest dog eats the fattest bone.

Tihehehehehe(evil laughter)

Mr.Fineboy said...

LOL...all the men are engaged? Is that right???? Hope you're having fun in Lagos...damn i wish I was there.

Bijimi said...

Hi,
Stumbled on your profile in a mag yesterday...(made do a classic double take!)
not all of us are engaged but the real question i want u & yr fellow females to respond to is: if u meet a normal guy, he says the right things, gentleman, agrees no wed no bed & all...would u believe him & give him an opportunity to be?...cause it seems y'all made up your minds that normal blokes r extinct!

princess said...

I have been asking the same question o! All the eligible bros are all hooked.
U are lucky at least you get to enjoy power at night. I dont rememember the last time PHCN flashed light in my house. Its crazy!
have fun o jare.

Miss Opeke said...

Make sure u eat enuf Pounded yam, Amala and all the heavy 9ja dishes but don't overeat sha...At least, you are home were everyone really cares about you...

uknaija said...

Enjoy Naija- at least engagement no be marriage :-)

Ms.Minx said...

Hey, welcome back, girly :).
And count ur PHCN blessings o, they're withholding ALL the power, ALL the time in my 'hood, lol.
See u @ the ThisDay thingy, hopefully!!

Noni Moss said...

Loll - the party was hella fun. Are you back permanently or just for a holiday?

As for the men - at least you meet some over there - in London, there are no men - engaged or otherwise!

Writefreak said...

Hi, haven't you seen the DSTV advert of Men in Trees? Men are like parking spaces, the good ones are all taken!!!

atinuke said...

Yup, all the men are definitely hooked. It's like a "commitment bug" going around or something.

Good to have you home!
