Saturday started on a very funny note.
I woke up startled!
It must have been a bad dream, but can't quite place my hands on what made that happen.
I was up all night, or for most of it, thanks to the heat.
Not having clothes on didn't make it any easier. And NEPA, they are better off not existing.

This follows Dolce and Gabbana's comments on same sex marriage and IVF for which they received a backlash.
See ad campaign below and be the judge;
In a letter sent by the latter's lawyers, they had the following to say;
"Our client is the publisher of the Daily Times, Weekend Times, Sunday Times and Business Times amongst other newspapers and special publication.
I had been standing in a mall queue, waiting to pay for picked items when I caught a glimpse of her.
Bimpe had sure changed in the over 7months since I last saw her. Why I never took her serious then left me in regret.
7 months ago: Was it the oil stain on her shirt?
Was it her terrible makeup?
Was it the fact that she laughed in a weird way?
Had I known.
Little things turn me off, but her glow sure left "junior" with a smile.
"Itodo, it's been a while, you ok?"
All I could do was smile. Bimpe, oh Bimpe!
Why didn't I love you when you begged me to?
Now she's engaged to someone, there's not a chance for me.

Read notable quotes from her below;
1. "Everybody is staying there for eight years. Now it's our turn. We must complete our eight years. It is a constitution of this country. We will complete our two tenure and hand over.
2. "I am a peaceful person and I preach peace anywhere I go. They are looking for fight, they are looking for war. They are troublesome people. That is why they went and take expired drugs.
3. "Now they are crying. They are the people stoning people and nobody talk. They are dragging stadium but me I am ready to go to the street and do my campaign.
4."They were there years back. They have nothing to offer. Ask them what they offered to us when they were there. They were in Aso Rock before, what did they forget in Aso Rock they want to go and take. Days are gone when old people will continue to dominate us".
Did you listen to her speech? Feel free to add more.

The PDP Governors Forum Meeting held in Lagos today, and yes it was broadcast live. Twitter was abuzz with live tweets as always, and I had to go on my knees praying for electricity to be restored (as always), so I could watch proceedings (and judge first hand).
While I prayed, waited and followed happenings, speeches and rants on twitter, I couldn't help but wonder how Lagos has suddenly become a Mecca of some sort for political events. And wasn't this the first time the meeting was broadcast LIVE? I stand corrected.
Oya NEPA don bring light, make I watch.
And there I sat, LIVE tweeting like my life depended on it. As much as it was fun, and unrewarding for me, it was easy to understand and see desperation in their eyes. This was an effort at setting things right. There was nothing left unsaid.
The whole time, rival party, APC, got free advert placements from governors, as they were blamed for even power outage during the event.
OH! That's the much entry this page can take. Please search #PDPGovernorsForum on twitter for more tweets if you missed out.
"Hi, my name is Aisha (not real name), and you just sent your number on facebook."
Then my voice deepens, as it always would when there was a lady on the other side of the phone. Trying to sound all relaxed even though I was overly excited, I listened to all she had to say. But what caught me was the fact that she had a crush me, and wasn't shy to tell. As much as I felt same way, one of us being the fool was more than enough. I was just gonna play calm and act like I was doing her a favor (or wasn't I?).
I had stumbled on her profile via a mutual friend's, and I did the only reasonable thing at the time, *Retweet a Tweet*. That gets all the attention one would ever ask.
Two days later, she was in my DM with a "Hello", and the next five had her on the telephone.
We spoke for over an hour, and you would have taught we were friends a long time. Such charm.
I was happy to get involved. What was there to lose?
What was on her avi (display picture), turned out to be an entirely different person, or was I dreaming?
We had agreed to meet at a lounge, the privacy was needed, and it was close to my office.
I walked in at 6:13pm, after an unsuccessful scan of the area, I had to ring her.
"Bae where are you, just wave or something".
What waved back was like something out a horror movie;
And worse? She was "Monochrome"! White on the face, black on the legs.
My expectations? Crumbled!!!
I was sad.
5 minutes later, I faked a call with my boss, and had to leave.
5 seconds later, my twitter account had no knowledge of her.

My laptop had been acting funny for a long time. Didn't quite bother me because it was inherited. And when I decided to get it fixed? The stress and trouble in-between would have been better avoided by getting a new one.
It started with a trip to Abuja's version of. "Computer Village", which wasn't really helpful, as I lost a shoe in the process, and came out looking like I had just finished from some farm.
Then referrals took me to Emab (where I almost lost my life once), which turned out to be helpful, or so I thought.
"Oga this battery na original o. You no see the carton? No be China". Those guys are skilled in sugar-coating words.
Like a brainwashed human, I went ahead to pay. Excited I had left procrastinating and managed to get a much needed item, till I got home...
