20 Random Facts About Me Tag

Yo yo Double D's

*did I explain what Double D's stands for? DD = Dakara Dahlings! And also boobage*

The lovely Ifenyiwa (of Love, Ifeyinwa and Ajali, which just won Best Made in Nigeria Product of the Year) tagged me 2 months ago in the 20 Random Facts About Me. And now, I'm finally getting around to it :D. So get ready, grab some popcorn and a fruity cocktail/mocktail, put on your sunglasses and be amazed......... at how boring I am/can be.


  1. I "like" crying. That is, I don't shy away from crying (DUH, no surprise - after crying because Cakes took my engagement ring, remember?). But I think sometimes, I create the opportunities for crying bouts. For instance, on Monday, I saw The Time Traveler's Wife scheduled to show. I've cried every single time I watched that film, and of course I auto-scheduled it. And yes, I started crying from halfway through the movie, and it was steady tears for 15 minutes towards the end. Yes, I went to work with swollen eyes on Tuesday.
  2. I don't like powdered milk. God made milk in liquid form. Don't destroy His creation.
  3. I like being short but it makes me happy when I see shorter people like Lola and Ebun.
  4. I can't wrap my mind around living in Nigeria permanently.
  5. If I could travel and live in hotels for a living, I would do it in a heartbeat!
  6. I think I would be a very good voice-over artist, a good TV presenter, and a great actress.
  7. I have my dad's nails shape... :(
  8. I practice twerking in my office restroom. And in my bedroom. And on the couch. And I wish I could do what Amber Rose did!!! (check her Instagram)
  9. I've read a number of books this year. All of them, trashy romance novels because they were free on iTunes bookstore :p
  10. 95% of the time, I can't hear or make out lyrics of a song. The beat or melody always overshadow the lyrics. 
  11. I wear glasses even though it's just one eye that's slightly bad.
  12. I asked my mum and sister how to boil an egg this year, then I Googled and Youtubed it! *hides face* In my defense, I don't cook things that I don't eat. Yes, it's selfish. No, I haven't gotten over that selfishness yet.
  13. I can eat 2 meals without drinking water. It's a very bad habit and tomorrow I'll be wondering why I don't have smooth skin *rolls eyes*
  14. I enjoy watching musicals :)
  15. I can be very paranoid! This morning I was about to make my cup of coffee and the thought has been going through my mind that coffee stains teeth and I'm 1 million percent sure my teeth are yellow right now :(
  16. I've been feeling nostalgic about my wedding and been looking through the pictures this whole week! I'm sure I'll put up more pictures from the wedding on our anniversary. 
  17. I don't watch news anymore. There's too much trouble and sadness in the world, and it really depresses me, so instead of watching and crying everyday, I'd rather watch E or Comedy Central.
  18. I have black spots on my tongue. As far as I know, I've always had them. I used to tell people I burned myself with hot food. 
  19. Speaking of hot food, I DON'T LIKE hot food!!!
  20. I can stand and walk with my feet inverted - as in with my toes pointing directly towards each other. 

Hmm, who to nominate now... 

FUNMI REESE - because I like her blog, and she only just started but has quite a following!!!
STYLEFASH - because she's missing in action and that's not fair to her readers
EBUNITE - because she doesn't think she's interesting and that's a blawdy lie, if I ever heard one.
SISI YEMMIE - because I don't think she's done one and it'd be interesting to see what she writes.


Have a nice weekend errbawdy!
