Nothing Really

My attempts to get a Kencell, Celtel, Zain, ooh it's now Airtel were just thwarted by some gal at the customer care. She kinda reminds me of customer i do not care, the Indians are here with the money. I have heard something about Indians, and most of it not good, really. It's about the bottom line. Money. In not Out.
Anyway, there is this thing. The  dynamic duo that is Maina and Kingangi have been asked to clean up their show..Imagine. How now? Radiotherapy should last forever.
It's easier to listen to others scandal and sing heathen, when you are not thinking of yourself. 
Most of us have secrets that we will take to the grave. These peculiar Kenyans take them to the airwaves. Much fun we have. Every morning. And now, we will have to contend with mmomonyoko wa udongo,
Same as busted. Honestly, i never intended to be a fan of busted. I never listened to it on Easy FM. Just like the way i have never read The Star. The cool peeps @Twitterverse advise, it's now the cool thing to read. Maybe/not. Smart People Read the Star, but do Smart People Write The Star? Maybe they should give me a free copy. Then i shall determine.
Anyway, Nairobi is changing;
The cool superhighway. Marvelous. Have you seen the way those Chinese are demolishing the hills. Awesome. I am told guys come from Tanzania for a tour of the Superhighway. Like Nairobi is so cool. Really, it's like NewYork to those peeps.
There are two things intended to bring Nairobians closer. Tusker Project Fame and Churchill Live. In all honesty, these two have refused to deliver this season. I don't know about everyone else, but they no longer tune with what i was used to. Or maybe i am growing old.

When Ladies and Gentlemen argue

I have learnt something from Busted. Last week, an unlikely thing happen. There was infidelity in the house of the Lady and gentleman at the Club.

That when they argue;

They call the 'other' Harlot.

Who has the time to remember the name harlot? Jesus. Sounds like from a shakespeare play.

When the mwananchi argue, they say 'malaya'

They ask for the 'wronged' for civility.

The wronged one says 'i have no time for civility' while exercising severe restraint.

The mwananchi lays all for everyone to hear.

The Lady asks him not to shame her in front of her friends. That being the main thing.

The mwananchi woman asks "why do you do this to me, after 3 children". It's the finances here.

Where do you fall?

Nairobian cycle 1

That just sounded like amphibian. Anyway my attempts to do anything rhyming backfired a long time ago. So here i am. Attempting all over again.

Anyway with a huge (assuming it is) pen the President signed into law some Bill called the Alcoholic Drinks Control Act

And just like that a whole culture change occurred.

You see when you become a Nairobian, there is a greater chance that maximum bonding time with the children happens on Sunday. Picture this. The father is working all through the week. Saturday he goes out with the boys till some weird hours of the morning.

On Sunday he attends the hangover mass (aka 12 o'clock) at the pestering of wifey.

Upon the last grace, he packs his people to the next restaurant/pub.

Whereupon they get entertainment. So the father cures his hangover by taking just one more. And the children ask for soda and chips. Really, don't these things grow old?

And the tois jump onto some thing called a bouncing castle and get their faces painted.

And then;

There is the dancing competition.

The children outshine each other.

No idea on where they get the skills but gyrate they do.

Then one day. No children in the pub.

Dear President, don't you see you have just killed family recreation time?
