Another Month Bites The Dust........

Someone please tell me how we got to the end of the month already. I remember April fool’s day like it was yesterday. Being in the real world really does suck up ones’ life.

Had an uneventful Saturday.
I got robbed whilst I was fixing my tyre at the vulcanizer. Right under my nose, my bag was stolen from my car. It sucked! And I was really upset. Thank God I had my phone, Ipod and car keys in my pocket. As far as replacements go, everything can be replaced; I was most upset about my Juicy C Shades! And my newly acquired make up- it’s all gone! * sob sob. 
Oh well……………... 

The Mister and cousin showed up after my frantic phone call- My cousin hugged me and the Mister gave me the stare. I know, I know, I get the stare all the time- he warns me about things like this and I never listen. Lesson learned now! Thank God he had my laptop bag- I would have literally lost it if my laptop was taken * just the thought of it gives me shivers. Take everything, but don’t take my gadgets.

And so I sulked yesterday away. Slept a lot- which was good. I was in a much better mood by evening. Watched the Mister play his video games one right after the other, and it had me wondering why women complained when their men played games. I mean- he is in the house, right? Isn’t that where you want him? To be honest, The Mister feels a bit uncomfortable sometimes when I am around and he feels like gaming (worried that it might look like his attention is elsewhere instead of with me) I on the other hand can’t be bothered. I enjoy watching him play, and I play a few myself even though most times I suck, especially at the racing games, as for first person shooters I simply do not attempt. He derives joy and pleasure from watching me crash the cars (He’s just jealous because my driving in real life is awesome and I can't replicate that in games). 

I have 3 weddings to attend next month- the remaining single girls in my office decided to get hitched and so the rest of the office keeps teasing me. I laugh and tell them, fear not, for one beautiful Tuesday, I shall walk into the office married- yep. I’ll get married on a Monday, because I can.

I have a French test in a couple of minutes, I didn’t study! I’ll probably boycott the test or copy my boss.

Au reviour......And a little food for thought.

Smaragd said...

mchew, maybe not, forgot about the evil approval thingy that i'm equally guilty of owning.

pele about ur stolen bag! that bloody sux! all ur make-up? that would hurt me o, thankfully ur gagdgets are safe.

lol @ Mister's stare.

i love watching guys play viedo games and i love to play too. u are right, at least he's there.

I soooo suck @ anything that involves driving cars, even GTAIV BUT not at Burnout! Freaksho taught me well. lol

Smaragd said...

p.s

I was just saying thesame thing about this year to someone ystday! where the heck is it running to, this 2009?

NaijaBabe said...

I know...you are quite right?
He is in the house where you want him, thats all that matters. He can game away for all I care o

~Sirius~ said...

@ Smaragd...Comment moderation sucks, but you are 1st my dear.
I still haven't gotten over my bag.

Burnout ROCKS!!!!! Road rage is my thing......I live for take downs. The Mister taught me well. It's freaky, because I have to switch mode when I hit the road right after playing. I have to constantly remind myself, this is real and not burnout.....LoL
Freaksho, your tutor ey?.....why am I not suprised

@ Naijabab....alas! I am not alone.

CaramelD said...

Stupid robbers!!!! Mschhhhhhewwwww!

Ndo.

Aha, wedding season has started for me too oh! I trust you to do undercover wedding, anyway try it and feel my wrath!!!

CaramelD said...

PS French test?? Why??

Freaksho said...

i love the way this post became about videogames.
sorry to hear you got jacked. may i suggest you equip your car with TrunkMonkey. it might be relatively pricey, but well worth it. a google search should set you straight.
@smaragd. good to see you remember your training, young padawan...

mizchif said...

Pele about ur bag, i'd have been seriously miffed too.

lol @ u getting married on a monday, i'd like to hear what your mum would have to say about that!

Rose said...

Sorry on Getting Robbed
...The months are indeed rolling by at an alarming Speed...We may awake one morning to find ourselves in 2010...LOL!

You want to get Hitched on a Monday...?What excuse would you give for skipping work...Some co-workers are quite nosy...and are guaranteed to fish you out soon enough...Lol...

Uzezi said...

i sympathize wt u on the loss. pele. u go replace everything soon in Jesus name. u r lucky ur laptop wasn't there. and yes, it is a fast year.

~Sirius~ said...

@ Caramel.Sweetheart thanks.....You and I both know undercover it shall be. Inner cucus only......As per French, my company has a lot of international dealings and branches in French speaking countries, so it's complusary for all staff to take in house french classes (even our CEO)..Ce la vie.

@ Freaksho....Thanks man. I'll get the TrunkMonkey when I upgrade my whip....'lil favour? Will you be kind enough to teach me FPS? Smaragd sounds like she learnt quite a lot.

@ Mizchief.....Thanks Dear........As for my mum, she'll probably be the one to facilitate such.

@ Rose......I so agree with you, it's frightening!

@ Uzezi........ehn, you have no idea how thankful I am. It could have been worse I keep telling myself, much worse.

You shouldn't have given that thought, cuz now I'm going to think about it!...lol.. Sorry about your things being stolen. Thank goodness they can be replaced and your laptop?? I'm shivering too!...whew!

~Sirius~ said...

@ Gee.....*sob sob...they were off the hook. I'm sads...luckily I have a different pair, so until I replace them, i'll just have to make do with one. French- is compulsary @ work.

@ Cerberus .....It's called comment moderation. lol. Teach her well, You have no idea how happy I am that I still have those.

@ Bumight....I sure can feel it! lol...aaah, if my phone had gone.....I'd have been inconsolable (although it'll be an opportunity to spoil myself with a new toy)

@ BSNC...Still thankful about that. Not worried about getting married, worried that I don't want a wedding at all- and I can't see that happening, or at least a very small one....

@ O.N.A Thanks....I will eventually

@ Bibi..LOL, I try so hard not to think about it. In fact I have totally refused to use another bag.

@ Naked Soul.....thanks....I know, I just believe each year is shorter somehow.

@ MizC....aah, *hiss ...Don't mind them, awon oloshi........*hiss God will catch them. 'tis really annoying.

@ Omo Oba..Thanks.....Walking into the month of May with arms open wide....expecting double for all my trouble.

@ Bob-Ij....Thanks Sweetie.....think about it, seriously.....he he he.

RocNaija said...

Sorry about your bag.. I do that stare quite well, as well..
Only I throw in a couple of choicy expletives.. as the spirit leads..

Afrobabe said...

Wow, thank God ur phone and ipod were not in the bag...the phone especially...



lmao @ copying from ur boss...u no serious..

I personnaly love playing games so it's not a problem for me and yes, i'd rather have him at home ignoring me than outside ignoring and cheating on me!!!

SHE said...

Sorry about your bag.

them video games? I dont like!

LIL WOMAN said...

Thank God your gadgets werent stolen! there is nothing as horrible as losing one's phone...how do you get all your numbers back?....and so i am happy that your phone is safe.

Wedding on Monday, why? Isnt monday a boring day to tie the knot? i take it u want a very small wedding...goodluck with that...are your parents British? cos how do you explain to the typical naija parents that u want your wedding on a Monday, when you know that a lot of their friends and relatives wont be able to make it cos of work?

Tigeress said...

sorry about ur bag being stolen. That must really suck! But as u said it can all be replaced. thank God for ur life.

Rita said...

My dearest, the good thing is that month end means money in the bank but how we got there this fast, I do not know...

Sorry about the robbery incident. You will get everything you lost in more and better fold than u can imagine...

I used to tell my younger sister that marriage can happen just like that. She did not believe me until it happened to her...so not to worry, your turn will surely come

How did the french test go?

Buttercup said...

Writefreak said...

Awwww sorry about getting robbed!

I agree with you...my Mr reads a lot of times but i don't mind...we take breaks and do stuff with each other..it's a lot better than having him walk out the door!

And i can't play video games to save my life!
