B’Day Celebration.

I finally made the trip to the cinema to catch the third and final instalment to the Iron Man franchise over the weekend. I’m not sure if I should say it was better than anticipated or a bit of a downer so I refuse to pick it apart because I am a serious fan of Tony Stark. It was amazing, regardless of the plot. The action and the technology was beyond expected and very delightful. Tears rushed to my eyes when the final credits rolled. I can’t believe it is the end of Robert Downey Jr’s run as Iron Man. I hope he does Avengers 2.

Meal before the pizza with friends

 A lot of people assume I’m into romantic comedies for my love of novels but those movies don’t do it for me. Adrenaline pumping, action movies make my blood flow like no man’s business. I read for the pleasure a story gives my heart not my blood. Believe it or not, I would never ever go to the cinema to watch a romantic comedy, not out of my own pocket. I just love Superheroes and movies out of comic books, that’s all. Now, how about Fast6 next? Huh?
I had to extend the birthday celebrations later on because one of my girls was out of the city and didn’t want to watch the movie alone. It is nice doing stuff with friends especially ones you haven’t seen in a long time. Catching up made for a fantastic time. Sometimes, you need not do a lot to connect and make memories. It is the little things that count.

Last day as a blonde
Speaking of friends, I think the past week was for them or one of them. I thank God for the luck I had in seeing my bff not only once but twice on separate and unexpected days. We didn’t get to talk because of pressing matters but it was good seeing her after too long. Seeing her, however briefly on both days made me happy.

Village belle as of Sunday

Hmmm…after running around as a blonde for a few months, I took my hair out. I’m now rocking my God given afro for now. I missed the feel of the breeze on my scalp. Besides, I want to wear my newest hair accessories without a weave or extensions and I have to think about what I want to do with my hair next.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
