2007 is here at long last! Its that time of the year again. Yes - you guessed right! The time for making all those New Year Resolutions. Fitness DVD's, Weight Loss aids and props adverts - the whole works are being unleashed on us TV viewers. Its as if its only in January these things get sold and we are bombarded with every Tom, Dick & Harry's Exercise & Fitness DVD who tell us how they dropped 10 dress sizes simply by dancing to the Video. Yeah Right!! You forgot to mention that hidden band round ur oesophagus too. We the populace are such suckers and fall for all these celebrity gimmicks daily. How many have made new year resolutions? Its always the usual isnt it? Lose Weight, Join the Gym and attend regularly, Pray more, read my bible more et al. This year, I have purposely not made any New Year resolutions. I have always abandoned my previous new year resolutions after one month. This year, I'm just taking it as it comes. No need making resolutions that I know I wont stick to that will be chucked away by the end of January. Lets just see how this year goes eh? LOL!! I need some dumbells though. Its amazing how they arent in stock or available in the stores the rest of the year but somehow always manage to appear on the shelves in full force every January!! Well, I'd better get them before they perform their dissapearing act off the shelves again.
New Years Day was fun for me and hubby. Though we didnt go out to see the New Year's Parade, We drove out to Slough and visited some of our relatives. The drive out was fun and the roads were free of all traffic. The loving and attention we got (and gave also) was nice. Lots of food - Ofe Nsala (In calabar we called it Afia Efere or White Soup) and Pounded Yam, Jollof Rice, Chicken, Salad, pudding, wine, shandy and then sat and gisted, got to know each other better, took pictures and then watched some movies afterwards. *Sigh* Thank God for loving relatives. God Bless them real good. We certainly have to retaliate soon.
I was at Victoria Station today and saw this lovely 'mannequin' advertising holidays at BA.com. On a closer look, I discovered she wasnt a mannequin after all. She was a model simply earning a day's pay sitting on her deck chair on the beach - at the station of course!!
What luck!! I
wouldnt mind a job like that!! "Sit down on the beach and get paid to be ogled at." Only snag is I'm sure she would have been bored to death as her 'newspaper' had little or nothing to keep her busy. She's simply starring at the beach and wishing she was there too or maybe she's thinking of the easy pay she'd get at the end of the day? I'm not too sure which one.
A New Year treat - Check out the Anandu/Amamize wedding. It was WOW!! But be warned!! There are about 200 pictures in the album so set the slideshow to 'fast' mode when viewing them!! Congratulations to the newly wedded couple. May there be the sound of pitter patter of little feet in your household in 9months time. (smile) The bride is so pretty and her sisters are WOW!! As for the groom - oh la la!! But I shall not talk about another woman's husband. LOL!! He has been caught already. There are more babes in that household where the bride came from so NaijaBloke (and all ye single men out there) - this year a babe must 'catch' you so please head on there and check them out. LOL!!!
Yeah!!! Celebrity Big Brother is here!!! Jermaine Jackson got into the house with 10 other celebrities. Its going to be fun watching them all. He seemed a little bit reserved when meeting the other housemates. There are so many musicians or rather former musicians that have gone into the house this year. Almost everyone of the new housemates seems to have been in some band or had a hit single at one time or the other. So people if I dont post too regularly, you know what I'm doing - watching the housemates! LOL!! Dont mind me. Desperate Housewives too is back with a bang!! January is good to me!!!
I got a call today from my agency telling me about 2 job offers which may be available for me. Its so refreshing to get a call from this agency at long last!! I had actually thought they had removed me from their list and forgotten all about me. I've been looking for a better position with a new firm away from my current job. I'll call them tomorrow to get more details. 2007 may you bring loads more of of these sort of offers where they came from. Amen!!
