May be I have got this wrong? It seems when you see two girls moving closely
together, one is a stunner and the other is her sidekick? Is it some inner need
by the sidekick to associate with a more perfect "figure" (figuratively
speaking) and hopefully some of the shine would rub off on her? Or is it just
that 2 beautiful girls would naturally drift apart due to the innate desire to
be the only belle of the ball?|
Please correct me if I have got the wrong end of the stick ...
Proverbs 16:3 says "commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be
Why didn't it say the opposite i.e., "commit thy thoughts unto the
LORD, and thy works shall be established."? Because that would have implied a
lazy man can fold his hands (just pray to God that's all!) and thy works
(clothing, money, food, cars, etc) shall come into being! Oops, not with this GOD
- you gotta work, then he will give you grace in excess (Psalm 23:5b - "thou
anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over") And if you are throughly
willing to work, that is some form of humbleness so, James 4:6b - "Wherefore he
saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble")
Save Oh Father

747 ... booooorrrriiiiing!
A colleague asked another colleague in the office why he was "O'n boyin be 747".
He meant why was he smiling to himself. The Yoruba phrase above is a play on the
Boeing 747 to something like "smiling like a 747"|
The bus driver
Yesterday on my way to Marina I boarded a bus half filled with guys and the news
I saw the previous night crossed my mind. It was about the "one chance" buses. I
took care to sit close to the door, but after a while having told myself that I
am a son of the King and that it is unlikely for "them" to operate in V/I
together with the benign look of the driver I relaxed a little. Just in front of
the Silverbird emporium, a taxi-cab pulled away from the curb and we nearly ran
into him. The busdriver stepped on hi brakes, pull up beside the taxi and said "Oloshi.
Armed robber!" One of the passengers in the bus added to the taxidriver "Baba,
eti ya were sir o!"|
Well, I got to my destination, called the man only to discover he wasn't back in
the office. I jumped on a bike to CMS to board a bus going back to V/I. This
time I sat in front next to the driver and as soon as he started the bus, I
noticed there was something familiar about him - he looked like the same driver
that drove the bus I took to CMS. I looked back at the "conductor" but I wasn't
so sure about him. The next minute a bus went into reverse ahead of us and
nearly backed into "our" bus. The driver shouted "Oloshi! Armed robber" -
well I had my answer :-)
There is not one perfect person on earth - no, not one. But there are a few
people walking the earth that are close enough. One such person got married last
weekend. This is saying congratulations to the latest couple in town - the "Sonaikes".
May God bless the union in all the ways only He can. Hidden riches of secret
places and secret riches of hidden places may he grant the couple aplenty.
And following Mr Albert Campion's lead (in "The Question Mark"), I will
now cross the madam's name off my private list entitled "Elegant Young Persons
Whom I Ought to Take to Lunch" and write it neatly at the top of my "People I
Must Send Christmas Cards to" folder.
There is a bank a couple of blocks away from my house, and every morning
while walking to the main road to catch a bike to work, I have to pass
the car drivers of the bank by the road. It seems they are always discussing
about their "conquests" or some girl that is still proving hard to get. I
mean these are married men with kids at home! I was going to quickly
condemn them, but soon realised that it wasn't much better where I work.
It seems all men are born equal when it comes to certain things. We are all
men of impure thoughts with evil intent seeking naive conquests.|
This morning . . .
It was one of those mornings. I was woken up by my Uncle at 7:30am - it seems
his Windows desktop (mot his MAC Mini or his Windows lappy) had decided to
start Bluescreening (If you use Windows and you don't know what a BOD is, you
don't wanna find out - it also means you must be a very lightweight user -
probably just playing solitaire and minesweeper on the thing - good for you.
Ok, with time against me, I fixed the BOD problem only to be remember that I
was supposed to help my aunt hotsync her Sony Clie to her laptop. In between
brushing my teeth, taking my bath, and dressing up I did the sync and was only 4 minutes late to work -
how about that for performance? It's a KPA issue!|
The exam . . .
The venue for the exam was quite far. I hitched a ride
and that still took some time. Finally, I was close
enough. I got off and then legged it through some
brambles, and trees to the venue. The venue was one of
those tiered rooms like the typical University lecture
room. We settled down and after a while the exam started
- it was an hour long exam. It was then I discovered
that I didn't not have any answer booklet on my desk. I
rushed to the back to get another seat. The desk also
did not have any answer booklet. I noticed an answer
booklet on the next desk that had already been used -
and was about 3 pages full. That's highly unlikely,
unless the owner came in with some "chips.". I rushed
down to the front again, and sat beside someone who was
busy sleeping! No answer booklet on that desk either.
Turned and tried to shake the guy awake and discovered
that it was Kenneth (a consultant from an application
development company I knew!) I rushed to another desk
and finally found a usable answer booklet. I opened it
and was about to start work when my boss called (phone)
. . . and woke up.
It was about 6:50am, I tried to make my voice sound
clear so that he wouldn't guess that I was still asleep.
"Hello Tunde. The customer just called me now. Make sure
you get to the office early today and stay on top of the
situation. I will be late to the office. Please keep me
posted. . . . "
I had a good mind to tell him that I was in the office
until 10pm the previous night, but I didn't say
anything. He was right as usual: "only result is
rewarded; effort is not"
The CEO Roadshow . . .
As I watched people rushing to get to the venue before
the stated time, it dawned on me that if people feared
God just half as much as they feared men, this world
would be a much better place. It appears the problem is
not that people do not fear God; It's much deeper than
that. If people truly believe that God exist and that He
is all-seeing and all-knowing, then many of the things
we do that are against the laws of men and/or God
wouldn't get done. Yes, we all confess with our mouth
that we believe in God, but do we really truly deeply
believe? No, I guess not.
Good food can Kill . . .
I came across a lady walking along the road today and
the only thing that came to my mind was "good food can

How to Know a Nigerian . . . a.ka. Nigerians can't sing
Airport Immigration Dept.
Custom Officer (CO): Mr. Ajanlekoko, we have reason to
believe that you are not really a Nigerian even though
it appears that the passport you have in your possession
Person: Haba, I am a Nigerian to the core
CO - in order not to delay you too much, we will just
make you take a very simple test which works all the
time. Please sing the National Anthem
Person - Arise O ... (he proceeded to sing the
national anthem without missing a note or word)
CO - I can see you know the . . . .
Person - (cutting in) Please I haven't finished. Let me
sing the original version too.
CO - you know that one too?
Person - yes (very proud of himself)
CO - there is no need. You did very well with the "new"
version. I am afraid we know for sure now that you are
not a Nigerian.
Person - how can you say that?
CO - 2 good reasons. You are not up to 40 years of age,
more important, you know the national anthem in full by
CO - no true Nigerian nowadays can get past the 3rd line
of the first stanza.

I set to thinking what it was that made me do the
