SN Break: Day 5

[tweetmeme source=”Joliea” only_single=false]

So yesterday was way too packed for me to do anything and thus the post today! Yippie!

I made it! Well, there is still like another two days left hehe,… so am gonna have to wait.

Since this is going to be the last day I actually make a post, I feel good. As in, I managed to stay without tweeting or facebooking for all that time! Haha! Now the big hurdle would be the weekend for now, and if I ever decided to do a full month! Anyway, I don’t even know why am saying it as if its so difficult not to be connected! Its like its a taboo or something. Its not. Maybe yea, am missed by some, but am so so sure that its just a few. Haha! Prove me wrong!

This weekend is packed. I have work to do on Saturday and am planning to go watch a movie at Prestige on the same day. My Sunday is also booked 😦 as in seriously, don’t even ask me when I ever take a break because I have no answer to that. Its only God who knows why I don’t still have burn out! Ha!

I gats no cravings as of now, maybe a piece of nicely fried chicken coated with bread crumbs could do, plus some finger licking pizza and a glass of fruit shake. But… thats waaaay beyond my budget! Unless you’re offering to buy me! 😀

I guess now I see how beneficial/not beneficial the social networking sites are. For me, they keep me in touch with people. And I presume this is the case for most (if not all) people too. Considering the hectic schedules most of us have, sometimes it feels good to connect with your friends while still putting food on the table, and not making sure its the bill you’re footing #ifyouknowhatimean! I can see it now. I did see it before, but I have found myself in a sort of a rut when I wanted to share something I couldn’t, I wanted to make a short rant somewhere I couldn’t, I wished to ask someone something or people to help me with something and I knew I’d get feedback quicker considering the immence wealth of knowledge that exists in the Twittersphere! (yea, am calling y’all tweeps smarties!)

So thats it so far.

SN Break: Day Three

[tweetmeme source=”Joliea” only_single=false]

So far so good. I have had some slip ups here and there… main one being that since I considered fb messages as valid, I’d get veered into checking my notifications. #notgood! So I worked on that and now I can say am only looking at the messages and only those that require my action. #Dedication!

I heard about the Kenya Film Festival and I was kinda sorta excited. Why? I like movies. I don’t like like them, but I do like them (ignore me!). So I want to visit Prestive Silverbird Cinemas on Sunday (I will be free then) and see what movies they have that day. It hopefully will be fun 🙂

And something else I noticed, how come there are like ten million games and shinda this, win that and ninininis??? Kwani?? Oh, I heard they made it easier to have those. So now there is a boom? Okay fine. But me I can’t pay 25 bob or whatever to enrich someone else! I don’t care what someone tells me but that’s gambling. Period. Soon enough you find you’ve spent about 10K (on the lower side) and lo and behold that dude who sent like err… ONE text shindaz the sijui Vitz. Now why would they pick the kadudu? Haha! When I heard “Kiss my Vitz” I LOLed mpaka the LOL was complaining (ignore me..)!! As in kwani they kosad anaa idea?? Who the eff thought of that? Am sure someone somewhere really thinks thats something catchy.. err duuh! NOO!! LOL!! Then the mother of all eff ups >> KTN bring sijui what show jana (Tuesday night) sijui “Text WIN” bla bla bla fishcake! Nonsense! Mschew!! (in true Naija fashion) What nonsense is this-o? Have they lost their mind?? Chineke! And it went on for like an hour! Mamamia! Am done. Nimeacha kupiga kelele.

Oh and speaking of jana, as I was watching “Nairobi Law” I couldn’t help thinking of oh how much I’d tweet how I hate how sijui who said what in what manner and I didn’t like it because that’s not the way I felt they should have said it… (did I make sense there?? Ignore me!)

Back to the title of the post. I can do it! I can actually stay without tweeting/fakebooking…etcetera!!! Wow! Am proud of meself 😀


Aah... thats better! Keep the change!


Buuuut…. before I pen err… blogg…errr… type off (gorrit right?), have y’all heard about this Tatu City? Eh!! ebu just

SN Break: Day Two

[tweetmeme source=”Joliea” only_single=false]


SN stands for “Social Networking”. Thus the title. “SN Break – Social Networking Break: Day One.” How has it been so far? Don’t expect this post to be cute and clean!

For one, I still can’t believe that I can’t go into twitter! It’s that bad!

At least, I am getting some work done. But I must admit, I do miss my twitter and facebook. Oh, speaking of which, am koseaing kidogo coz am going into my facebook inbox. But thats only because I also use my inbox for some work purposes. Anyway, am sure someone is saying “enhe…and how are we sure you won’t look elsewhere?” Yea. I admit there is no telling how. But am testing my resilience. So far so good.

(side note: No Digsby for Ubuntu Mac OS? 😦 )

Things are okay, did I mention withdrawal symptoms? And the fact that I feel that urge to “retweet” something so so nice I’ve read but I can’t since the ONLY update that will appear in my accounts will be these posts from the blog!? HUH!

Lakini lets see how it goes. Things will get better (I hope!).

A WEEK off Twitter & FB: Can I Hack It?

[tweetmeme source=”Joliea” only_single=false]

My Beloved Friends,

I have decided to go on a short sabbatical. Yes. You heard me right. I have decided to take a ONE WEEK break from all form of social networks except for blogging and email. That means that for the next one week,



But not to worry. I shall be okay. Its only one week right?

Why am I doing this? Its an experiment. But I shall tell you more soon.

The question is, Can I Hack It? I guess we’ll have to wait and see 😉

Oh wait, seeing that its still experimental, I may slip up and post something w/o remembering my sabbatical status. (which reminds me, that word ain’t the right one to use….) So kindly ran me a red light and stop me at my tracks! 😀

Love U all!

Windows is so so weird!!!

[tweetmeme source=”Joliea” only_single=false]

A year ago when I joined this organization, I was introduced to Ubuntu. I’d seen it before, in cyber cafes especially, but never really understood how itoperated. Back then, Ubuntu was oh so weird! I was so so used to Windows. The blues, the clarity, the interface… so so much. Then I started using Ubuntu. My oh my, it was kinda hard adjusting to the different interface (that’s the word right? I ain’t no techie!) that it had. The Open Office idea… just the look made me just wonder in amazement. I was told it was organisational policy to use FOSS: Free and Open Source Software. Now that was news for me. What the eff is FOSS? Lemme google it.

Free and open source software (F/OSS, FOSS) or free/libre/open source software (FLOSS) is software that is liberally licensed to grant the right of users to use, study, change, and improve its design through the availability of its source code. This approach has gained both momentum and acceptance as the potential benefits have been increasingly recognized by both individuals and corporate players.

In the context of free and open source software, free refers to the freedom to copy and re-use the software, rather than to the price of the software. The Free Software Foundation, an organization that advocates the free software model, suggests that, to understand the concept, one should “think of free as in free speech, not as in free beer”.


Fascinating! Free software! Yay! I being that tech-ish person was elated. I started exploring. I started discovering. I started liking it!

Nowadays am so so used to ubuntu that anytime i use windows i feel weird. The look, feel, interface, all feels weird to me. Its so interesting! Now they have windows 7. Did you know that i can spit in Gate’s face by a few clicks? I can make my ubuntu look & feel like windows 7! Infact, that’s what i did! While some people might think that its actually fuelling the expensive and popular windows but IMO its a slap in his face like *nye nye nye! we can be better!* LOL!

Anyway, for me, i am now Ubuntu all the way! I am now using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. There is already Ubuntu 10.10 which was released on 10.10.10! Oh, and just ask some tweeps (for thy twirradict) and you’ll know I ain’t alone 🙂

Don’t be fooled, I repeat, I ain’t no techie!

Monday Rant!

[tweetmeme source=”Joliea” only_single=false]

I’m thinking of starting a tradition. But am never good with those (even my written english can be oh so pathetic at times … pathetic… don think of Ian puleez!) so I won’t bother. But I have, haven’t I? Oh bear with me wont you!

Monday Blues! Most mondays are a drag for most people. Why? Lemme c how many reasons I can come up with.

  1. They had a blast over the weekend and now they’re hangied.
  2. They had a blast over the weekend and now they regret why Monday came to spoil it all.
  3. They had a nasty weekend and now they have to go to work.
  4. They had a really good weekend and woke up high spirited but then sijui some mat drama messed it all up.
  5. They had a nasty weekend then to top it all off they didn’t have power Monday morning, didn’t fua clothes, don’t have fresh clothes or underwear and woke up late! Daeng!

Basically, we go through these stuff every now and then and it doesn’t have to be Monday mornings but why the eff does it have to always happen on a Monday???

Anyway, so lemme rant some more… hence the title “Monday Rants”

Any lady out there bought them darn expensive and overly advertised Kiwi Smiling Feet? Amazing huh? NOT!! They’re pathetic! (ian what did u do to me!?) As in really!! Okay, I know the gel heel cushion will work because they just go underneath but the rest are just a rip off! Those strap thingys make ur shoe too tight, those heel liners don’t even stick… does any of their product work? Really? Am so so pissed! So so effing mad! (@gotissuez asked me to do this & there is a post there.)

My rant dismissed.

Thank God Its Furahiday!!!

Damn its been one hell of a week! Just look at the time this post was carved out!! Phew! I swear, am gonna insist on EARNING my keep! As in literally! Hooh!! Sawa. Al not rant. Anyways, the past week has been great. It is the second week since I moved from crazy Thika Rd to Ngong Rd and so far so good. 🙂 Am glad that I now pay Ksh.30 to work as I get excercise from walking from Prestige to my office (around Yaya) by force. I used to pay Ksh.80 so am saving about 50bob *yay* am an economist!

Other than that, I forever am grateful for all the good things that my Creator is doing for me 😀

On this weekend…

This weekend I think I will be going for a Cook-Out organized by the good people @FluidTees! I shall also be going to Tusker Project Fame thanks to @OfficialTPF4 who were kind enough to give me two tickets to attend the Sato show *maexcitos!!!*

I expect Sunday to be lazy lazy lazy! 😀

I soo crave…

Niiiice Milkshake…I have simple cravings 😉

I just wish…

…that we as Kenyans open up our eyes and see the bigger picture. WE are the employers of em bastard silly 222 peeps filling up spaces in Parliament. WE put them there. So its WE who are going to decide whether we wanna keep them there or not. This storo of us complaining kila mara must stop. WE should do something about it. ITS UP TO US!

Inspiration for the week…

African women in general need to know that it’s OK for them to be the way they are – to see the way they are as a strength, and to be liberated from fear and from silence.
