I've been out of sorts of late and not in a hey-i-had-too-many-jagerbombs kind of way though.
My wires are well and truly crossed and frustrating the hell out of me.
Ever wanted something of the romantic nature to happen so bad because it makes sense in your head, the person makes lots of sense, the two of you together makes loads of sense...you've thought it through and you can't find anything wrong...
That your heart refuses to pitch up for the party!
Come on! Seriously!?
I'm too old to be a dophamine junkie, really i am! I'm too old to be making pheromone based decisions...my head and I agree on these two points.
Sadly, my heart aint having it and insists on foiling my very pragmatic plans. I think years of subsisting off the like of Mills and Boon and all other chick-lit is coming back to haunt me. I've successfully brainwashed my heart into believing that knights in shining armour come in a specific way and now i'm losing out on all the very eligible but unconventional prince charmings because of it.
I want this to a go a certain way so bad and it's not *hmmph*
Maybe i'm trying to hard...okay i know I am trying too hard, but gosh darn it (yes, i do say that in real life) that's only because i know how the flip-side of this romantic coin goes and it's not pretty.
Now trying to get my head and my heart to agree on something or rather someone...now that i would like to see!
Until then, if you see a big fat caucasian baby flying around with weapons of mass romanticisms, please tell him he's long overdue a visit to Vim's side of town!
Agony Aunt styled advice is more than welcome :-)
Finally!!!: A whole 70 days after he kicked the proverbial bucket, a consensus was reached by MJ's family on where to lay him to rest...for good.
I doubt i'm alone in thinking that the length of time it took for them to handle logistics was ridiculous and disrespectful!
Hopefully now he'll get the rest he deserves, and about time too!
A lot of people also felt that the Nigerian community was unecessarily stereotyped and intentionally portrayed negatively in the flick...
For a movie i haven't gotten around to watching, i feel like i know a bit too much now!
All in all, this movie may be a million dollar hit across the pond, but sadly, a "prophet" will rarely receive the recognition he wants or requires in his own land.
If you've watched District 9, holla in the comments and give me your take on it!
