Yess o! Tolantino is BACK! I came off the rig about a week ago. I have spent the last seven days enjoying the feel of my apartment, kitchen, my bed and appreciating not being on the rig. Lol! It feels really good to be back. The human mind is truly awesome. It has the ability of overcoming experiences and shoving it to a compartment of the brain where everything that happened has a magical way of being insignificant. You quickly start to look forward to your next experience and the vicious cycle just continues. Lol.. To God be the glory my people
While I was in my self-induced blog-exile, I was multiple tagged. So I guess I have to confess. The only thing is that this blog is not anonymous so I will not be sharing any nasty dirry secrets.. My momma and poppa might just be reading.
1.) Whenever I snore while sleeping, I usually hear the sound (in my sleep) and hence quickly re-adjust my sleeping position. Even I don’t know how I do it. I know I’m supposed to be sleeping but these ears of mine seem to have a life of their own. I am a very light sleeper which takes me to my second quirk:
2.) I sleep with a frown on my face and I wake up with a frown. Lol! This is not a very pretty sight. Due to the fact that I am always semi conscious when I sleep, I tend to be irritated by any little sound I hear. E.g my flatmate’s mobile phone ringing in her room, the neighbor’s door bell amongst a host of other things. I know these things will disturb me when I set my head on my pillow so I am already pissed by the time I go off to sleep. When my sleep is eventually disturbed, I wake up with an even bigger frown. I should seriously invest in some heavy duty ear plugs..
3.) I have a massive scar on my right leg from my thigh to the lower leg. Wait till you hear how I got the scar… the five claws of a wild monkey! (I am not lying) I was attacked at the age of 3 in my own father’s house in
4.) I keep my hair afro natural because I strongly and firmly believe that if the good lord has blessed the other races with nice silky hair and they are able to wear their God given natural hair, then the black man should also be able to do the same without the need to suffer under the intense pain of soda filled chemicals which are used to burn our scalps and destroy the composition of our hair. Right from childhood, we are made to feel as though our hair is “Bad” and the long straight silky hair is “good”. I choose to blame the media and all these other hair companies. The other races have millions of products to keep their hair nice, shiny and straight. Why don’t these same companies come up with ideas on how to keep the afro hair ‘gorgeous, shiny and kinky”. Phew! I really do feel strongly about this but at the end of the day.. to each his own
5.) I am assuming everyone here knows how to eat tangerines… except me. I chew on them, suck out the juice but then cannot swallow the insides.. I just cant bring myself to do it! Eww..
6.) I am currently crushing on what could possible be the nicest mannered male on the surface of this earth. He is the perfect gentleman and oh…. Wait for the best part.. “I don’t think he has a clue!” (sniff sniff)I don’t know if this is a quirk but heck.. I couldn’t come up with something better.
So there you have it..I have given you your quirks so make una agree me rest.
I feel like jumping on a plane to go shopping in the
