Versatile and Stylish Blogger.

Versatile and Stylish? Wow! Imagine my utmost surprise and delight when I received this award from Tetekai. It's my first blog award and I'm so excited and grateful that someone finds my blog deserving of such an award. Thank you, Tetekai.

According to the rules of this award I'm to do the following:
1.Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know that they have won

So, let's get on with it already, shall we?
1. I'm addicted to the print and electronic media. I read books, magazines, journals, comics and ebooks. I spend hours researching on and downloading free ebooks on the internet. Thank God for fast internet on the wireless modems.

2. I am a passionate romantic. I'm sure you can tell from the poems I write. :-) Skewed towards one direction eh... It's either flirtatious or sweet.

3. I love music of all genres but I think my favorite three would be R&B, Soul and Contemporary Gospel. I also love to sing and write my own songs from time to time. I always thank God for my Ipod; can't imagine moving on the treadmill for 50 minutes without it... :-)

4. I believe God created me to do phenomenal things in this world and I'm intent on fulfilling this prophecy.

5. When I'm extremely pissed, I smile. Yep! that's anger management for you. Crazy eh?

6. I'm fun to hang out with. Spend 5 minutes with me and I can assure you that 3 out of the 5 minutes would be spent on laughing so hard and the remaining 2 on catching your breath... :-)

7. I believe that you are beautiful when you believe it. I look at myself in the mirror every morning, smile and say.. You look good. :-)

Now, you have 7 things about me, now I have to award 15 other bloggers... That's kinda hard so I'm gonna give to those I can. The award goes to:

There! You are one of my versatile and stylish bloggers....

The Names Parents Give.....

Sometimes we hear unique names that beg the question, "Why would anyone want to name his/her child by that name?" When you are looking for copywriting material, being inquisitive is inevitable.

Last week as I was heading out of the office, I heard the graphic designer teasing the receptionist. Since we all love worrying the sweet lady, I inquired about the teasing topic. "Do you know the name of Faustina's (the receptionist) son? I was like Kwabena. Then the graphic designer goes like "his middle name".

It was then that I realised it would be something unique so I urged her on. Then it came. Wait for it.... Please be patient now... Habakkuk. Haba-what?  Of all the simple names in the Bible, it had to be this one?

I now call her Mama Haba... Haba is short for Habakkuk.

Bra Reconstruction...

Yesterday as my colleagues and I were going home from work, our eyes beheld an interesting sight. A woman, who felt the lights in her house were insufficient to aid her project, decided to sit close to the road and.... wait for it..... sew her brassiere.

Seriously? And the interesting thing was that the bra was black, and the thread she was using to sew the tear was light blue... Undergarments eh? Nsem wo Ghana.


Have a lovely weekend.
