Me & MeMe's....

Warning : Long Post Alert!

Well, well, well……. yours truly ~Sirius~

Yes me…..Sirius,

I’ve been honoured by two different bloggers, Tigeress and BSNC.

Yes, two of them at the same time, with the Honest Scrap Award. Only me (The rest of you don’t hate…..*evil grin, he he he). Appreciate.

My Thank you Speech- I have Out Sourced to Caramel D, she seems to have had enough practice. What say ye Ms D?

And so:-

1.You must brag about it
2.You must include the name of the blogger who bestowed the award on you and link back to the blogger
3.You must choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends (lol).
4.Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
5.List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

I find meme’s hard, but Seeing as I have completed tasks 1 and 2, I shall go ahead and list some honest things about me (Tigeress wants to know more about Sirius)

Be Warned: This specie is quite rare….so here are some honest things about me.

1.   My love for God has no boundaries………….none what so ever. I’m blessed with the gift of faith…’s really, really deep. 

2.   I find it really amusing that I can’t get angry……I don’t know what it feels like to be angry, the closest I’ve ever come to getting angry was when someone ( I don’t talk to) said stuff about me that wasn’t true. (I wanted to bitch slap her face- but my Momma taught me better than that…….so like I always do, I waited for the truth to do the bitch slapping- which of course it did eventually, seeing as nothing is ever hidden under the sun *hiss)

Naturally, I get upset from time to time and after a couple of minutes or hours it fizzles out. Sometimes I try to induce the anger by replaying hurtful words said to me and hurtful things done to me…..but then I start laughing, *disturbing I know- I guess my firm belief in “everybody’s human” has a lot to do with it.

I never get it when people lose it and lash out and say all sorts of “Nansense”. Things they end up regretting. Beats me. 

3.   ~Sirius~ is as stubborn AS A……(complete as you wish), yet quiet- how does that work?  most times I just enjoy it, my way or the high way- it’s up to you. Most people that know me don’t bother anymore. I argue with certain people like there's no tomorrow, and I always seem to have an answer for everything. 

4.   CTU (though it no longer exists) has nothing on me! ~Sirius~ at all times is wired up. My earphones are my adult umbilical cords, can’t survive without them- Music and me. My handbag consists of gadgets, wires and enough cables to blow up blogsville. And oh- my Vicky’s lip gloss. 

5.   My instincts and sixth sense scare the living daylight out of me! It’s so bad that sometimes I think I have super powers- LOL, I kid I kid! to be honest, it freaks me out, especially where matters of the heart are concerned.

6.   I HATE being shouted on. I HATE IT, I HATE IT, I HATE IT!!!! 

7.   I’m one hell of a puzzle… answer is ever right. I cannot be decoded. I react in the least expected ways for any given scenario. 

8.   I am one of the shyest humans to face the planet earth, yet this sexy 5’7” chica happens to be a show stopper- the good part is people just stare and wonder, and I get away easily behind my mean walk, sunglasses and earphones

9.   Most 1st impressions about me are the extreme opposite of who I actually am. In fact a friend said to me “You defy everything you stand for” I’m perceived to be a fragile spoilt snob whose nose is in the air. First of all, Fragile and Sirius don’t go together, I’m a little bit spoilt….yes I am, but my nose is definitely not in the air. Is it my fault God created me a hot goddess. * hiss

10.        Minus the issue of body weight going up and down……I love my body. I call it “The Beach Body” My carefully and wonderfully made- voluptuous- in- the- right-places of a body is quite a work of art- best features are my brown eyes… should see them at sun set. (Don’t be jealous)

11.        I am an Island. I love my world, I love my solitude, can’t be bothered to go out partying, make new friends, meet people- it’s just darn stressful! My fashion magazines, the internet-Blogspot to be exact, facebook- what’s that?, music and  food!!!! keep me going.

12.        ~Sirius~ is NOT a jovial person. She’s Very laid back, calm, collected, listens and observes, a nice to meet you too kind of person, quiet & reserved, but  somehow, whatever environment I find myself, the “it” peeps want a part of me, and this has been the trend from primary school up until the office. So I am the one person you can’t say "show me your friends or the people you hang with and I’d show you who you are."

And now we have: 11 Radom things

Minus the fact that I am a well known Shopaholic.

1.   I drive like a mad man……he he he. It’s the need for speed.

2.   I would love to fly planes…….

3.   I have FBI/CSI skills, they come naturally.

4.   I don’t want a wedding, I just want to be married

5.   Somehow I always end up in the lime light- I don’t fight it anymore, I just ignore.

6.   I suffer a mini…….. ok that’s a lie, just over a mini OCD when it comes to the state of my car and room- NO BAGS ON THE BED PLEASE!

7.   Sadly, I have won a beauty contest- and she’s shy.

8.   I laugh at nearly everything- it can be very annoying

9.   I wish I own a silver Magnum- just so I can clean it, shine it, and look at it everyday

10.  Dita Von Teese is my fashion icon- And to think she doesn’t own a pair of jeans

11. “The Truth” and I are best of friends, no matter how bitter it is. I’d rather know than live in a lie.


This is just a piece of me, reading this will not give you a full insight. I hereby tag Caramel D, LGSmargard, LoliaBaroque, ExSchoolNerd and Cerubus (M, O and MY respectively)

PS: Thank guys for all the comments in my last post. You all know you rock!

Trains, Thoughts, Trials & Thanks

I have one more day left and my holiday is over. On the train today, whilst on my way to visit an old family friend that I haven't seen in a while. I realized that there's just something about sitting in trains......the mind can't help but wander, and so I find my thoughts drifting away.

My first name means "God's Jewel"- I like to tell people it means "God's Precious Jewel" because that's how I see myself. From my gibberish post you could tell I had a lot on my mind.
I gained 4kg from sitting at home for 3 weeks waiting to collect my darn NYSC certificate! My dad was going through one of the toughest times ever and I watched my mum breakdown slowly as I became her mum, My so-called-job was acting up, my well deserved trip was looking bleek........hence the saying, it never rains, it pours, and in all of my 99 problems a "man" wasn't one this time.....LOL, in fact he was the only light left in my world.

And so I went to blogspot as i usually do, but this time for uplifting.

ShaCrown had just put up a post saying in everything give thanks- right, I thought- How apt?
I took it as a sign and acted on it, as I was doing that, I remembered a sermon by Bishop Noel Jones (He's awesome by the way) and in it he said to us- God says that we should ask for ALL things, not just 1,2 or 3 but all- Naturally, I have a hard time asking for things, so I carry this attitude to God, but not this time, And so I told God today I'm going to be greedy and ask you for everything and wait for them to happen.

It's so obvious when God does His things, He uses you to show off ,and the end product shows it all. He definitely doesn't share His glory.
Not only did I get a promotion, my salary is quite a take home for a fresher in these credit crunching times, My mum called me as I was loosing my mind in clothes and my feet in shoes (On my well deserved holiday btw- *sigh, there's nothing like shop therapy, it's a Must Do)and it was my dad at the other end of the phone!!! He was ok and everything was sorted out.

So here I am at the end of my holiday (2 or more kg lighter, after 2 weeks of sauntering in and out of the shops and not eating rice everyday!!) Overwhelmed by what God did for me. Words can not describe my gratitude, I am so thankful to Him and I promised to share this with you He has shown me that, indeed I am "His Precious Jewel"......... so are you.

And my dear friend sends me a text saying she has just burnt my food!!!!.................Afro!!!! Why now??

I really can't wait to be Home, but I am going to miss the Caramel .......

Confessions Of A Shopaholic

Rewind 2:45am 7th March
Eyes wide awake, Insomnia has hit me like never before. My body is knackered and suffering exhaustion, seeing as I have been on clockwork mode for the past 3 days without proper rest...and yet, here I am wishing for daylight so I can lose my mind in the midst of all Fashion has to offer me: - To think I actually believed nothing excites me.......

Rewind 9:00am 7th March
1st stop.........the bra shop, to get proper fitting....and boy did I get the shock of my life.......The results should excite me, but no it didn't, it actually upset my mood.
I dive into the deep end.......8 Lasenza's later I'm feeling all good with myself  J
Next Stop........The West End!

Rewind 11:23pm 7th March
1 suitcase full, a couple of missed trains and buses, a freezing butt with sore hands & feet, this dame still has her game, but all I need right now is sleeeeep

Today 20:00pm
With half a suitcase more.......At this rate I might have to cargo more than one suitcase.........Gosh....There are just so many things to buy! I'm drooling over my new collection of shoes......I think I need help here, 11 pairs and counting....with a more than a week to go.......I'm off to bed right now.....It's me and Westfields Tomorrow.

I thank God I don't live in this city......
Little does my bestmate know, but I am dragging her along with me come her day off!

Oh no, I can tell this is a very muddled up post, More like a diary entry…..might not make sense to anyone but me.

·       * Long Exhale…….. I have officially served my country and I can say it was quite an experience; I’ve never wanted something to be over so bad…..So bad that when I was handed the flipping piece of paper (The Certificate that is) I looked at it and said “Is this it?” ………Really? ………….All that hassle for this? I thank God for seeing me through this “ordeal”- as I would like to call it, and be warned  NYSC truly means Now Your Suffering Continues………..It’s a colossal waste of time, and I’m glad it’s over for good! I would miss CD days though, it's the only official excuse to work four times a week.....*sigh

*Longer exhale……… got a lot going on around me…….. a lot on my mind, enough things to demoralize me and my state of mind, yet I am far from being demoralized (dunno why- ok I know why), a bit worried- this I cannot help, seeing as it is human nature, but then again worrying doesn’t change anything, and for the 1st time in my life I am letting myself share all of this with a very good friend of mine. I never share- I’m usually an All-in-one Package kind of person, I Do EVERYTHING for myself by myself, but this time I just can’t help it………….it feels like all the things weighing me down get dumped at the sight of my friend J, It’s amazing…… so amazing that I feel at peace in the midst of madness …….and that just makes me HaPpY.

I was meant to share a quote based on my current state of affairs but Funms beat me to it…..So here, I’ll share this with you guys and I’m sure at least one person will use this as the missing piece to whatever puzzle they are trying to solve in their lives right now.

I turned the page too......and it's Awesome!!!!..................Now I have to learn not to keep going back.

PS: NYSC is my achievement for the month of February.......yay!
All those born in March, where the Party at?!
