Thank God Its Furahiday!

I am excited about…

YESTERDAY ROCKED!!! Ok noooot that much. Wamathai Exclusive was a blast! Fewer peeps, still kinda noisy, wondered why, enjoyed the music, the poetry was outta this world, kudos to “Man like Njoro” (or what was it?) I laughed mpaka am so sure @Amasy could see my last tooth :D. Then there was this dude from KU (can’t remember the name) who also cracked us up with his remix of several songs! I think he did like ten songs in one all stringed together in a very very funny way! Haha…am rubbing it in for all who missed it (hate me! :D)

That was jana. Super cool. Now I think the next event would be 31st August at Club Soundd.

Today I’m feeling…

Lazy Lazy. As in this #KenyaDecides and #KenyaDecided mood. Tis great me thinks. And we should all celebrate in our own ways. We have come a long way and me thinks we made the right decision. Its now for us to come together (and become watermelons!) and make a difference. Make it work. Make the new Kenya 2.0 work for us!

On this weekend…

I’m attending a party of a friend, I have work to do, (imagine!!) and then REST! Some well deserved…

TGIF!!! Thank God Its Furahiday!

I am excited about…

Several things. But for this bit, its the “Wamathai Exclusive” spoken word event. Can’t be more happier! Can’t wait! Hope to enjoy myself though since the last one was err…ish ish.

Today I am feeling…

Quite elated I must say. The office has virtually no one in, peeps are at the WAREMBO NI YES Rally or something else. At least I know that half the women are there hehe…a good initiative indeed. And I’m wearing green in solidarity! YAY!

The ngoma that’s kicking right now…

Rihanna – Te Amo <– Aki ya nani that song really! No, no words for it. Makes you wanna…ahem! You should watch it! Listening won’t do, WATCH IT. And I know its the men who will be drooling like dawgs they are LOL! Ahem!

On this weekend…

Gosh! Do I ever rest? I have some work to do Sato morning, then a session with Tazim Elkington (one amazing woman…gonna witness more awesomeness!) then if time allows imma go for anaa poetry gig. Sunday’s probably gonna be anaa #LazySunday just lounging away @ home and cursing at whoever has my micry err relaxing the day away. Or something else…who knows?

I am soooo craving…

Mmmmh! (darn cursed weather! NKT!)

I just wish that…

I wasn’t sitting where I’m sitting now 😦 Such a bad station. As in its stark right at the corridor and thus whoever passes can see what am doing. Considering my multitasking abilities and incessant refusal to stick to just one thing at a go for longer than 30minutes, I just hate it when its like all the time my bosses pass by and look at my comp they see a browser open. And what do you think they’re gonna be thinking? You guessed it. Darn it!

I really hope…

That when peeps vote on August 4th, THERE WILL BE NO VIOLENCE. #ThatIsAll.

I was inspired by…

Several posts done by Kawi. Honestly, she just made like two or three posts that left me thinking, “Kumbe am not the only one?” Go ahead, look at her work. Tis good. I have also been inspired by this friend of mine who has a kid, didn’t go through high school and now is a motivational speaker! I mean, he earns like twice the much I make! Na vile nilijicharaza high school! Tsk Tsk! Bravo to him 🙂

Have a super fragalistic friday y’all! 😀


[tweetmeme source=”joliea” only_single=false]

the other friday i was out with friends and i got home late. now when i say late i do mean late!

i got home at 3am!

is that too late? should i be scared? should i be more careful? my mom is very concerned. its in her nature though. i love her so her views really are important. but i always think…its a friday and a lot of peeps are out at night. so is it safer? am curious. i live along thika road so i alight on the way (kindly don’t mention where exactly if you know). and where i alight has security right at the entrance by the road plus the security guards have dogs. so…is it safer? should i be worried?

i personally don’t mind..but i do get scared. very scared.

just a thought.


Me I Think I Love Writing!

[tweetmeme source=”joliea” only_single=false]

Its almost 9.00 am in the morning and I am now back to work and very happy that I’m back. In my head is recurrent images of that night that I got drunk for the first time. Its funny by the way, I am gonna give a brief peek into what I did that night but then you will see how its tied to the title of my post.

So Friday 30th night (to Saturday 1st early morning) will go down in my history books as the first time I deliberately got drunk! The first time I ever got drunk I was like 8 yo and it wasn’t deliberate so that doesn’t count. I loved the excitement. I loved every bit of it that went down. I had like three margaritas, a mohito(sp), two black ice, a shot of Sambuca and finally a yellow cocktail who’s name I cant remember since by then I was just too wasted. And I wasn’t alone! I was with my pals and the place I went at least I had people I knew.

I am pretty sure that there has never ever been another day that I have danced like that ever! See how stressed that sentence is? I bet most of you think I am either naïve or simply young. Well, I am young yes, but naïve? No. I knew exactly what I was getting myself into. I had to experience this so called drunkenness that almost 90% of Nairobi is obsessed with! I simply had to know why the eff everyone loves getting drunk. I personally don’t think its worth it and I mean that in every sense! Basically one of the things that puts me off is the amount of money I will be prolly be flushing down my throat. And thats why I’d be very happy with my Alvaros, Novidas and Sodas thank you very much!

In the end, I proved a point. That I could get drunk and live to remember it. Maybe I didn’t black out but I guess thats too bad because I don’t see a repeat of that happening any time soon! Why? Because my values haven’t changed. I still think that overindulgence is nothing but a waste of money and a threat to my ‘perfect’ body! But hey! If drinking is your thing, and you got the money, go ahead. Be my guest!


So back to why my post is titled as is. You know, I wonder if I can remember why I titled it that way. I guess am still kinda hangovered! Haha!

Have a sober week now wont you!

Me I Don’t Go Out

[tweetmeme source=”joliea” only_single=false]

Yea, its true. Well, not that much anyway. Why? I have no frigging idea! Maybe its the fact that I am such an economist! Very much. I am really obsessed with how much I spend on anything. Even when I’m supposed to be having fun! It can be frustrating at times because then it means that instead on focusing on having fun I am focusing on hown much that fun is making a dent on my bank account! It makes me hate myself sometimes because it means I don’t have so much fun as id want to…though I don’t even know how much fun I wanna have because the last time I was out was, in simple terms, tenee!!!

But I wanna change, slightly. I wanna start going out more. I wanna be able to go out and have fun like my friends and not worry too much about how much is going down the drain of my throat! I wonder if thats even concievable! The thought of gobbling down drinks and entry fees without even stopping for a while to think about the consequences!

I grew up very saintly. Really, I did. By saintly I mean, I never did drugs, I never did alcohol, that is, too much of it. I was part of C.U.(Christian Union) all the way from primo. I was indeed saintly. And it went on when I came out of high school. Up to now, I don’t see why people drink a lot. In the first place I find beer to taste terribly awful yuuck even!!! I have never understood how people can drain like a whole crate of that into their system #nooffence people!

When I do go out, I usually have like one or two drinks and never more than that. I’m a girl and when you’re taking stuff like pretty blacky or royal red, you tend get drunk quite fast. And as far as I can remember, I have never gotten drunk, i.e. when am this older. The last time I got really drunk was when I was in 5th Grade and was at a get-together of sorts where my older cousin spiked my fanta with safari cane! It was horrible! I immediately got drunk and started wailing to my mom about feeling dizzy and laughing while at it. I fell on the stairs way too many times and finally blacked out in the living room infront of everyone while I was replaying my famous poem that made me number one in a recent competition! You simply had to be there! I still don’t know how I can remember all that!!

Anywhoo, you get the gist. Drinking ain’t my thing. And I know someone will tell me how oh, you don’t have to drink when you go out and bla bla bla…oh come on! Who believes that!!!

All I can say for now is that when my time comes, you will not recognize me!
