It’s Friday… yay!

Friday is said to have gotten its name from the old English word: Frīġedæġ, which means: Day of Frige.

This, of course, is according to Wikipedia. And it further says that Friday is associated, in many cultures, with the goddess of Venus.

For some countries, where Monday is conventionally held as the first day of the week, Friday is the fifth day of the week. For Sunday-first countries, it is the sixth day of the week. For workweek and weekend countries, it is also the first day of the weekend.

Whatever position it holds within the week or weekend, Friday is, and may I add nowadays, a day of the week many look forward to. Whether formal office workers, business owners or working from home, many people generally see Friday as the “bringer of good tidings.”

Of course, not Friday the 13th. But that’s talk for another day.

Friday has the traditional, and world accepted, Thank-God-It’s-Friday mark. Of course, for some people, it’s Thank-Goodness-It’s-Friday.

Again, whatever it’s called, TGIF is a big day everyone looks forward to. I read, and only this morning, that TGIF was originated by an undergrad student somewhere in the USA.
I didn’t, and don’t intend to, investigate its verity. It’s negligent fact, in my opinion… at the moment 😊.

What is key is that in 1996, R.Kelly helped spread the TGIF spirit with his song: Thank God It’s Friday. And that Friday, a day most “sane” people look forward to, everyone leaves their place of work, or place of no-work, in the festive spirit of gaiety and keeps that spirit up until they stagger into their beds at 3.a.m. on Saturday morning…

For people with the YOLO spirit, of course.

So… Today is Friday. It’s Thank God It’s Friday. TGIF. And wherever you are, whatever you are doing… hopefully not committing a crime…

Just lift up your spirit, get buoyed up, prepare for 5p.m., or maybe it’s 6 or 7p.m. for you, time doesn’t matter, just get in the mood and get ready to celebrate Friday… in a happy, crime-free, hurt-no-one (including yourself) way.

Enjoy your Friday, folks.

#TM ready to rock 💃

Remarkable Monday

Sometimes, we get worried about what we are doing here on earth?

Does it happen to you?

It happens to me… more often than it should be, I sometimes think  🙂

But the thing is we are all here for specific purposes. There’s a place for me and there’s a place for you. There’s a need for you and there’s a need for you. There’s this one thing each one of us is meant to do. One thing with our name solely inscribed on it.

Hiya, good people. Happy New Week to y’all. I call this Remarkable Monday. And I’m thinking of this John Green quote:

“What’s the point of being alive

If you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?”

Makes you think, huh?

While we start off this new week, let’s make the choice to do something remarkable every day.

Cheers  😀


Raining Tuesday

Hiya folks.

Gosh, it’s raining cats, dogs and sinkers over here in PH. What’s the weather like on your end? The rain a blessing or a what-da-heck-is-this? Lol   😆

Well, whatever it is, just remember, tough times don’t last, but tough people do. And I know I got tough folks here  😉

Hey Iyke, saw you’re back. Hope you’re tons tons better. God’s divine health upon you… and us all.

Y’all have a good day now  😀

And oh, OMTAF is bound to be late today. No power and it’s raining… can’t say when they’ll restore the light. But keep your fingers clicking-ready and your romantic hearts reading-ready  😉

Cheers and kisses  🙂

Spice up your weekend

Hey, folks, it’s another Friday, another first day of the weekend and I want us spicing up our weekend this weekend  😀

How’s the week been for everyone, huh? Had some good days in there? I hope you did. I sort of had blessings pouring in from right, left… and centre. Life’s good and God is always good.

Now, let’s talk sex. This morning, I want us talking “how to keep him/her interested and intrigued” with a few tips. A quick recall that these tips are for married couples and for adult men and women who have made the choice to responsibly have a sexual relationship. Responsibility is key as far as sex is concerned. We’ve established that on our “Sexonsibility” talk, right?

So, you have your partner (man or woman) and things are going all right, okay, just fine… but that spark is dwindling. You just can’t feel it anymore. There’s no sizzle, no sparkle, no fiery kisses, no smouldering eye contacts and wild-wild sex nights anymore. The whole thing’s gone blah.

Thrilling Tuesday

One of my best animation movies of all time is The Lion King. Like I watched this movie, on DVD, back to back, all two and half parts. Amazing movie, amazing voice cast and definitely amazing crew to put out that amazing movie  😀

It’s raining here in Port Harcourt… well, maybe not all of Port Harcourt  🙄 but right here where I am, it is raining. That’s no biggie, we are in the season for it. But rain apart, or with it, I consider today a thrilling Tuesday. I am excited and frankly, I don’t know why. I only know, TM’s getting her groove back… yay! I feel good and I want to keep feeling good. I want to feel better than good. Is that even possible?  😯

But above all, I want to know who I am. I am going to be forty soon… okay, duh, everyone in the whole wide world knows that, I’ve been chirping about it. But it’s big for me. It’s a new beginning. A new life. I want a new life. I need a new life. All my life, I’ve been living less than me. Less than who I am. I want that to change. And I’ve been working towards that change. Doing a countdown on Facebook towards my big day… my day of rebirth.

Sometimes, life steals away who we are from us. Sometimes, people snatch away who we are from us. Sometimes, we forget who we are.

This morning, today, Mufasa, the Lion King, has a word for you: “Never Forget Who You Are.”

That is very important, that we never forget who we are. And if after reading this you start to wonder: “Who am I?” Don’t panic! Many of us don’t know, and it’s okay, and not too late. As of now, begin discover who you are. Learn about you. And when you find you, love you, appreciate you, and be you.

It’s Tuesday and here in my side of the garden city, it’s raining. What’s happening with you?

Oh and P.S. … One More Time… And Forever will come in late today. It will be here, but late. Keep an eye out. Cheers

I got a testimony

Happy Sunday, y’all.

I just want to testify.

You know, many times, we think we can only testify when something “big” has happened in our lives. Like we bought a brand new car, like we are pregnant with a baby after TTC for five years, like we finally got engaged at 34 and after a zillion disappointments, like we got that big contract, got a promotion, got a new job, got healed of cancer, fibroid… and all of that.

For us, as Christians, those are recognizable miracle. Awesome miracles. Testifiable miracles. And when we hear such testimonies, we wow and clap and make that joyful noise to the Lord.

And all of that is good.

He did it, so give Him the glory.

But that is not all He’s done. The “big” things are not all He does. The “significantly visible” things are not all He’s doing.  He does the small things too. He does the unseen things too. And those “small” and “unseen” things are the greater miracles.

Sleepy Saturday

The alarm clock rang. She flung out a hand and punched it shut. A clang announced its fall. She grumped, sniffed and rolled on her left side. The piggy little noises resumed again.

It was sleepy Saturday and her plans were… no plans!

Hiya, peeps, it’s Saturday and I am calling it: sleepy Saturday. I got one plan and that is: put up my feet… well, right after I’m done with today’s episode of Ndubuisi and have it posted  🙄

But you… what’s your Saturday plan? Who had a mega Friday night last night? Anyone still hungover?  😮

Who’s going to remain under the covers all day long and let the world sweep by in slow, rhythmic streams, huh?

Wishing you a super great Saturday and remember:

Cheers  🙂
