ranting (ii)

actually nothing to rant about.
just in the mood.

just joined a company that is current almost bankrupt. (Or so the management says)
they are planning a mass 'sacking' excercise, just when I stroll in.

it had better be a joke oh.

domestic issues abound. me and my siblings are probably giving my folks serious headaches.
my kids had better be good.

New job, new town, new life

New everything.
My life is new. At least, to some extent.

I have met someone I want to spend the rest of my life with
At last.
Details later

ranting (i)

Relocated a little while ago to Port Harcourt from Lagos.
Got here and the mess is even more noticeable because it is a smaller town with so much money.
Roads are tiny, not seen power in my new apartment in days, (can you believe its actually worse than Lagos?) militants here, there and everywhere (not seen any, though)

Couldn't care less at first. As far as I was concerned, who the heck was the governor of the state anyways? Who cares?
Until I saw my pay slip and the huge chunk that statetax took off!
A whopping 22%!
Some a**hole has a lot of explaining to do as to what is happening to my money!
Good grief!@?!
Who is the freaking governor and where does he live?

blogs, blogs, blogs

strange that I look forward to reading other peoples' blogs but do not bother updating mine
what are you waiting for?

Naija 4 life

I love my country, I no go lie
Na inside am, I go live and die
I love my country, I no go lie
Na me and 'im go yab till I die'

Not quite sure why this came to mind now (some old folk song from way back), because I'm not sure I really feel that way now!
Believe me, I love Naija, but there are sometimes I feel like tearing my hair out at the potentials we have and how we are just crawling.....

I just made an 'investment' (I choose/decieve myself to call it that, no blame me. Forget Rich Dad, Poor Dad - the guy no be Naija guy) on a state of the art home entertainment system. I bought an Samsung LCD tv (my parents should not hear this) to replace my 25 inch Samsung CRT. Wired my LG 5.1 surround sound system. Setup my new Playstation 3, my slightly older Xbox 360, and real older Playstation 2 to the tv and amplifier. Purchased 2 PS3 games and even went as far as buying a HDMI and optical cable for the connections.
Non of these are made in Nigeria.

Took me a whole Saturday morning to get the connections right.
All this happened about 2 weeks ago.
Guess what?
I havent played the games or rocked the 1080i functionality of the TV as I write this.

NEPA!!! (Never Expect Power Always)
Or is it PHCN now? (Pls Hold Candle Now!)

There has been no power supply to power these equipment.
Jeez! Seems we have run out of water in the dam (again) and there is no gas to supply the power plants!
Light comes on by 7am - on my way to work, and goes by 6pm - on my way back from work.
The rest of the night, I'm on my own. Except of course I have the now basic household appliance of a power generator.
I don't.

the objective of this rant is that all the stuff mentioned above is for sale.
And for very cheap too.

Any takers?

P.S. Naija is what Nigerian's fondly call our country

Love To Lead

Stumbled on this Toshiba blog this morning.

Vote for me on Love To Lead

Interesting topics come up weekly.

Read my response to one and vote for me to win a laptop - wishful thinking.

Darn, time does fly.
Actually thought to do a better job of blogging last year. Sigh. Never did.
Right now, supposedly at work doing some serious work....... blogging.

I have just been inspired about love and life by Ugo. One of my oldest friend.
Will fill you in on it later.
