Meals: The Case for Breakfast

This morning I woke up with a craving to eat eba with vegetable soup. Since the soup was available I indulged myself and enjoyed my meal. Yes, I ate eba for breakfast! Strange as it might seem for some people it’s a fancy that occurs once in a while and when it does, I give in to it. With a …

Pretty Please

Sometimes it’s difficult to get the woolgathering over and locate a focus for my weekly column. Today I find this challenge looming and with each click of the keyboard I’m closer to finding the centre of this piece. Almost an entire paragraph and still not closer though…it’s more fun this way although I’m sure some people won’t agree with me. …

Of Writers and Books

I’m a writer and a darned good one! I get better with each passing day and although I sometimes don’t write like I should (budding writers, please don’t follow this bad habit) I have a plan to change. So what brought this on? I hear you asking. Today’s Friday and until a few minutes ago I didn’t have the foggiest …

Censorship

Who in the world heads the Nigerian video censors board? I ask because something’s totally off about what they permit in the cinemas. For who in the world would ban Half of a Yellow Sun (for reasons best known to them) but let Fifty Shades of Grey go scot free without even a squeak? Or did I miss something and …

What’s love got to do with it? – 2

It’s Friday the thirteenth and from what horror flicks have taught us…something bad is sure to happen! Thank goodness I’m not a fan of that genre (well apart from A nightmare on Elm Street that became more comedic with each successive part) and not a believer in the number 13 as unlucky, more so when it’s paired with Friday. It’s …

What’s love got to do with it?

Valentine’s Day this year (at least in Nigeria) has had a major twist added to it. Like we all know this is election year and one of most crucial offices will be spoken for that day. The electorate has been called upon to choose between love and civic responsibility. Not much of a choice, me thinks, but I’m sure there …

Simple Instructions 3

It seems there’s simply no getting away from instructions. I’ve shared my thoughts and more on this here in 2011 and 2012 respectively! Once again I’m compelled to air my opinion on how some of us (yours truly included) follow both stated i.e. obvious guidelines for various tasks and how we choose to flout them…often to personal detriment. Instructions could …

Many Things

Once again I’m back to the blank white screen and the challenge of publishing my weekly Friday column…I LOVE IT! I’m so happy to be able to once more share my thoughts with you and also read yours too. So much has already happened this year and since the year just started there’s still so much ahead. From all the …

Little Things Count

2015 is here and boy have I begun to learn some major lessons! The most interesting one (so far) has to do with my blog. It’s a pretty important one too because it demonstrates how much we cannot afford to overlook the seemingly ‘small’ things. Anyway, as you probably know I’ve been having issues with logging into and consequently publishing …

2014 Curtain Call

This is the second to the last day of 2014 and there’s still much to be done. I know I’m not the only one thinking this but I’m sure that others share it too. For me the fact that I’ve been unable to publish regularly is a dilemma I’m trying to unravel. Interestingly enough I’ve been unable to log in …
