Ok, so i'm sitting in the office now. My younger brother bashed my bumper this morning, and so I had to take my car to the mechanic. Or rather, I had to call the guy to come pick the car up. God knows it's needs a mechanic's touch. These days, i dunno who's driving who...am I driving the car, or is she driving me? Oh yeah, it's a she. My car is a she - a babe. My laptop sef is a babe. But that's another discussion for another day.
In my intense boredom, i decided to continue reading my novel - Clash of Kings. Yeah, by the way, I've started reading novels again! :D You see, sometime ago, I noticed i've not read a single novel for close to 5 years! I mean, is my life so serious that i dont have time to travel into the world of fantasy, adventure, action horror and gore? (I left out sex deliberately). Don't get me wrong, i read oh. But i got so bogged down reading very serious books from Anthony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Jack Welch, Stephen Covey, etc. I have a long waiting list sef, on my bedside table and in my wardrobe - books I've bought but I'm yet to read. A waiting list of serious books. Mscheew. Anyways, I decided to venture back to reading novels, and I have not regretted it. Maybe the reason why I stopped reading novels, was because i discovered the immense value in reading all these serious books. And I'm a cronic overdoer. I like cake, so I eat it a lot. I like(d) novels, so I read them a lot. I discovered these serious books, so I read them a lot too. (I like girls, so I ...)
Anyways, (I've said too much of anyways.) Anyways...I told a certain friend of mine to give me a novel to read. That didnt turn out well. So one day, i decided to plunge in and start with George Martin's Game of Thrones series. It's been a blast! That guy's mind is something else, I tell you. You should see the battle scenes he paints. So graphic, and so alive! And his characters, OMG! They're like SO REAL! I swear, i can relate with Tyrion Lanister (the dwarf - for those of you who have seen the series), and some other pseudo-despicable characters in the book. I'd advise anyone to take the book and read. Give your mind a boost.
Anyways, (here it is again), I sat back to read my book, but the prints on my iPhone is kinda small so I couldnt read for long. I usually read on my iPad - much bigger screen. So I stopped reading, and decided to tweet. No tweet was coming to mind...of which, i think i've lost my twitter mojo. or maybe i've gotten too busy. Who gets too busy to tweet? Sometimes, I get thoughts floating all around my head, and I'm like 'Hmm...I should tweet that!', but I'm just too lazy to pick up the phone. Lol! Of which, someone should invent a tweet app that is installed in the brain! You think up a tweet, then you think 'tweet that!' and it gets tweeted! Just like that! Wait...does my writing this idea mean I have an automatic copyright? Just in case some thieving genius reads my blog in the shower and twists the story... Anyways, you head it here first!
But this is all a bloody digression. This is perhaps what happens when boredom takes over the mind of a young man and he attempts to quell it by writing. My initial discourse was to be on people who made my 2012. And I got the idea by some tweet I happened upon.
(of which, it's past seven, and this mechanic has not come with car. God punish devil).
So, I'll just reel out names of people who made my 2012, and why. Please note that this list is in no order, and it's by no means exhaustive. Remember, I'm bored, and I'm writing this because I forgot my iPad at home. I'm better off reading George Martin, than putting my random thoughts in paper.
Anyways (!!!)...that said, I'll start with Deji Adebusoye. He worked in P&G before he left to INSEAD for his MBA. I've waited for 5 mins in order to try and craft how/why he made my 2012. But I dont have the time, nor the intellectual stamina to try to attempt such a task. So, just take his name. Next, Ifedapo Adeleye. He lectures at the Lagos Business School. Then there's Kemi Ogunyemi, who also lectures at LBS. She selflessly help me in some project I worked on (you'll hear about that soon). She also has this different and inexplicable way of looking at things. Next is some fine baby like that. I wont mention her name. My interaction with her made me a better person. She works on a rig. Lol! (Just so you'd know yourself. And just so the rest of you won't think it's you. :p )
OK, so I just called the mechanic and he is close. Time to pack up and post this. I'll make this list longer, and post it later.
Kindly pardon all my typose jare. For those who frequent my blog frequently, (is that phrase even correct sef? Abeg who cares), you'll know that I'm always very careful with my spelling, puctuation, etc. But tonight...well...
Thanks for reading :)
Do Have a very Merry Christmas and God bless you!
