Been tagged by Mental and Gay Nairobi Man. Here are my 6 weird ones.


  1. Post six weird facts/habits about yourself. These cannot be used against you later on.
  2. At the bottom name the six people you will tag next.
  3. Leave them a comment to let them know they’ve been tagged and to read your blog.

I never taste my food whilst cooking. I feel that tasting while cooking is like watching your christmas gift being wrapped and then expecting to retain the same surprise once you open despite knowing what it is already!

I cannot stand other hands stirring food that I'm preparing when it's in the process of simmering or stewing. Get you nasty hands of my creation ama just wait until it's on the table! (you said weird right?)

If sharing a bed with someone I always sleep furthest from the door. Have no idea why but has to do something with being the last one to be attacked by a visiting ghost

Have a crazy thing/obsession with Cadbury's Fudge and Crunchie. Maybe it's because it's hard to find out here and regardless I always find myself at this store buying Crunchie bars by the tons despite the outright daylight robbery of the price. Been known to eat fudge bars for breakfast

I suffer from the "I-have-nothing-to-wear" syndrome despite having a closet full of clothes (ok I think that one might be a bit universal)

Cannot stand to hear French or Spanish spoken in an American accent. It irritates the hell out of me!

That's it done!

Tagging: Labelle, Valedon, ..jamaapoa.., Kiplagat, Mrembo, kamikittens

Paternity Test

After reading M's post I couldn't help but envision this scene..... All characters in this scene are fictitious and the author is not responsible for the readers conclusion(s).

(Enter Maury Povich with paternity test in brown/yellow envelope. On the couch sitting nervously to the left of Emille are yours truly Marie W. and Winnie M.. To the right General Roocey and offspring. Maury opens the envelope and the audience holds their breath. Pin drop silence abounds as Maury pulls out the paternity results....)

Maury: Now Emille, we are here to determine whether Winnie is your daughter are you prepared to hear the results of the paternity test?

Emille: zzzzzz.....(drool dripping on his Polo golf shirt)

Maury: Emille??? Emille. How about you General? What do you think the paternity results will reveal?

G. Roocey: (incoherent mumbling)'s the press that is trying to damage the First family which is mainly baba pookie, myself, La-won, Pookie and Sha-Qwanda. Peace up! O-town down!

Emille: ..zzzz...

Maury: Well before I read the results can we have a side by side picture of Emille and Winnie for the audience to see?

(Picture put up and audience oohs and aahs then heckles)

Marie: Even you can see the ears are alike and the eyes are similar....

(General is so offended that she jumps on the cameraman and slaps him and then races to attack Marie, bodyguards jump on stage to seperate the two women)

Marie: (Removing Maasai Market earrings and shedding off shoes) Wacha akuje hapa nimfundishe adabu! Pumbavu wewe!

(Audience excited at the probability of a fight start chanting fight! fight!)

G. Roocey: (foaming at the mouth and being held back by bodyguards as wig partially becomes lopsided) Adabu ni wewe na nyani wako! (Is taken back to her seat and she promptly orders offspring to move their chairs as far away from Marie's side. Offspring carry Emille plus chair to further corner)

Maury: Well here we go. Are you ready for the results? Well Emille (who ng'orotas and starts sucking thumb) The DNA test results show that you _______ (reader allowed to put are or are not in this space) the father of one Winnie M.

G. Roocey or Marie: (Running off stage into back room crying hysterically) I know he is/not the father! He is/notthe father! (Maury follows to console)

(Audience boos looseress and heckles remaining offspring off the stage. Meanwhile on Stage 2 Jerry Springer prepares to interview 2 Arsemenians and Winnie M heads into make up before being ushered into Jerry's show)

Work or World Cup?

I hate to be a derailer lakini I had to do something about watching a few matches since my kaboss was not going to give me a whole month off just to watch the world cup. Therefore, I bring you live streaming of the World Cup. You have to download a zip file and then fuata instructions. Might be more of an advantage for those of you in the US. You didn't get it from me! Makofi to Nobel's comment on this blog, it opened the flood gates! Guess, I tried BBC but it won't allow users out of the UK to watch live streaming.

American Presenters on World Cup...Sijui Niseme...

Talk about flavorless presentation. Really, do they have to shamelessly plug Team USA and its players in every single match? Inclusive of basketball references? Aaaaargghhhh! I'd rather watch the matches on the Hispanic channels. Even if you don't understand Spanish, the style of presenting is more captivating and you don't hear about Team Mexico or Ecuador or Paraguay plugged in at totally unnecessary moments.

P.S - Thanks to Ivory Coast for raising my blood pressure drastically!

Honda Commercial...Creativity

Got this in my inbox yesterday and thought it pretty cool. Make sure you view the commercial (name of the site not withstanding) . Those of you in the UK you might have seen it......

This is pretty cool. Read first. Read before you watch. Read the story, and then hit the link to see the commercial. There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it. The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole thing up again. The crew spent weeks shooting night and day. By the time it was over, they were ready to change professions. The film cost six million dollars and took three months to complete including full engineering of the sequence. In addition, it is two minutes long so every time Honda airs the film on British television, they're shelling out enough dough to keep any one of us in clover for a lifetime. However, it is fast becoming the most downloaded advertisement in Internet history. Honda executives figure the ad will soon pay for itself simply in "free viewings" (Honda isn't paying a dime to have you watch this commercial!).
When the ad was pitched to senior executives, they signed off on it immediately without any hesitation - including the costs. There are six and only six hand-made Honda Accords in the world. To the horror of Honda engineers, the filmmakers disassembled two of them to make the film. Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and complete Honda Accord) is parts from those two cars. The voiceover is Garrison Keillor. When the ad was shown to Honda executives, they liked it and commented on how amazing computer graphics have gotten. They fell off their chairs when they found out it was for real. Oh, and about those funky windshield wipers. On the new Accords, the windshield wipers have water sensors and are designed to start doing their thing automatically as soon as they become wet. It looks a bit weird in the commercial.
