Pop Idols Kenya

So tomorrow i take my baby sister for auditions for Pop Idols. I have to say that i admire her courage to do this, and the least i can do is to make sure she is there on time and looks hot! We spent hours coming up with that outfit that is not too tacky nor too bland. I had the shoes picked out, a new pair of fuck me boots I HAD to buy last week, never knowing when they will come in handy. Definitely not on location! Hard to describe them. They look like a blend of the boot with the laces, the one with the buckles and the one with the stiletto heels.

Picture that!

It's now 11.56am, she has just gone to bed with after a practice session on the song she is going tomorrow, and i seriously trying to play Simon Cowell. Talking of Simon, I saw this week ago, never thought I'd actually get to share it!!

How utterly insensitive!

Back to my sisters outfit... we then settled on a clinging blue halter neck dress - like the one below, without the flowing skirt- clinging and short! and she went off to bed happily.

I'm feeling like a very good big sister...

I'll tell you more about it when i get back..Gotta run!

A weekend of funnies

I have nothing planned this weekend, and experience has taught me that those are the best weekends when everything just happens...like last weekend when three of my friends ended in my house... and that was one of the most fantastic weekends ever!!

Just to start you off on your weekend, have a look at what made me smile today...

I now know why she is smiling...

And for very intellectual questions...

If you ever got lost on your intergalactic travels...

Funny pictures

And lastly, in case you ever wondered what Spidey does in his spare time...to keep fit maybe..
And in the privacy of his bedroom, in front of his mirror...

What Do Women Want?

A question I'm sure all men have but no one to answer it. I'm not going to offer you answers, sorry, I'm just asking the question also. I talked to a pal of mine today after a long time, lets call her Mari. Mari has been trying to dump her boyfriend for a few months now. reason? He is not ambitious for her liking. Well, he works hard, he has an okay job but he is comfortable with that. And worse, he lives like pauper. He store away all his money - for the future he says. That doesn't work for my pal Mari, as she says she is alive now, the huger chunk of that money should be used now. It sounded like a petty thing to me until I realized that she had told me that on more than five occasions.

She does not have a job and they have a mutual agreement in which he supports her financially at times. She does not want him to use that money on her, she wants him to invest it, put it towards an income generating project that she will see results from. That does not seem to be going through his head. It is so bad that he has opted to live in shady part of town just to save the money - he living at the bare minimumest

So she gave up and decided to dump him. But he is sweet and kind and she feels guilty about leaving him. Mari ignores him for a while and until he gets the gist.

Now, she is regretting her decision. Why? because the world out there is harsh for her and she thinks about him, to quote her, 'First thing when i wake up, last thing before I fall asleep, and all the time in between'

What I'm i supposed to tell her? You asked for it? Go back and compromise? Hold on, the waves of missing him will pass and soon you will find the one?

My Addiction

My friends will tell you that if I had one wish, it would be to make David Shore and Hugh Laurie live longer. You wanna know why?

House: Hello, sick people and their loved ones! In the interest of saving time and avoiding a lot of boring chitchat later, I'm Doctor Gregory House; you can call me "Greg." I'm one of three doctors staffing this clinic this morning. This ray of sunshine is Doctor Lisa Cuddy. Doctor Cuddy runs this whole hospital, so unfortunately she's much too busy to deal with you. I am a board certified diagnostician with a double specialty of infectious disease and nephrology. I am also the only doctor currently employed at this hospital who is forced to be here against his will. That is true, isn't it? But not to worry, because for most of you, this job could be done by a monkey with a bottle of Motrin. Speaking of which, if you're particularly annoying, you may see me reach for this: this is Vicodin. It's mine! You can't have any! And no, I do not have a pain management problem, I have a pain problem... but who knows? Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm too stoned to tell. So, who wants me?

Cameron: Is that the woman you use to live with?
House: No, that's her Indian name.

"...there's no I in 'team'. There is a me, though, if you jumble it up."

House: “Are you a fan of symmetry?”
Young Doctor: “Sure.”
House: “Weird, because your eyes are lopsided. And by eyes I mean breasts.”

Dr. Eric Foreman: Chase, stop.
Dr. Robert Chase: [stops]
Dr. Gregory House: How'd you get him trained so fast? Electronic collar? Got dog treats in your pocket?

"There is not a thin line between love and hate. There is --- in fact --- a Great Wall of China with armed sentries posted every 20 feet between love and hate."

I think you get it now. And i hope you agree that I need therapy (and the Complete Season 4 DVD, complete with Extras). I found this treatment...

My beautiful country

Once in a while, when such images hit me,

The beauty blows me socks off, takes my breath away...

Leaves me awestruck...

Who died and made them God?

I came across this somewhere.....

And I'm not gonna rant about the so called Christians. Once, when I read the bible, i learnt that Jesus taught to love the sinners and not to judge as they (Christians) shall also be judged. There was also something about casting the first stone if you are free of blemish, to which the bible says that 'All have sinned and come short of the glory of God' that rendering all mankind blemished!

Shame on them!

So, my curiosity drove me to do a little research on them. Wow! i was unprepared for what I found out. Apparently, the WBC is a hate group as per the Southern Poverty Law Center and monitored by the Anti-Defamation League. Way to go, church. Surest way to heaven!

This 'church' that should be preaching love runs a couple of hate websites like - God hates fags and God hates America, and God hates many other countries...and periodically posts Picketing Schedules.

What a waste of time!

Problems solved.. for women!!

One of the perks of writing articles is in the research part of it, well and the money. And today i had a fun topic to write about...Surfers. Not internet junkies, but wave riding, shark wrestling maniacs. It's mazing what you end up with with a few clicks of the mouse... and sometimes i cant help but to fantasize how utterly grand life would be if some of these things were actually true...This is what I came across:
So next time you wanna get away from it all...call me, I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a website...
