What to do

I have thought of situations and how to solve them.

somebody has borrowed your favourite book and you have no any intentions of loaning it to them because the last time you gave them something they never returned.
Just tell them that the book is at home and you will bring it the next day, for the next one week keep forgetting . They will get the hint but won't hate you for it because the only one to fault here is your bad memory.

Your girlfriend has caught you pants down with the girl next door.
pretend nothing has happened and do not follow her even when she seethingly walks out screaming its over and do not even try to communicate or say sorry.
Reason; She will now start to wonder if the girl next door has taken over her place and come running asking if anything is wrong. To which you must have a ready answer.

You have lost somebody's expensive book and you have no money to replace it.
Tell them you are going to replace it as soon as possible when a cheque you have been waiting for is cleared. Buy time but keep promising that way they will realize your good intentions to replace it.

To end a fling

Simple, try taking it to the next level.

any more....

Ever gone to shop for goods in some markets like Gikomba you find a long list of people all waiting to sell the damn thing that you are looking for and at last you end up paying bloated prices.The thing a different person shows you what it is you are looking for, somebody else tells you the price and then you pay some other person.At the end of the day you pay for the goods and you pay the broker.Where did the concept of brokering come from and why can't i wish it away?

imagine me a poet

i saw this article(comments section can't seem to link it) about love and i thought i could be a love poet , don't laugh at my poem it is my first so moments spare me sawa.

I dream of love like this
Where I will wake up with you by my side
When every day will be a day to look forward,
To your loving arms and smile
I will be by your side to love and cherish forever.

One day I will be yours
When we shall watch the sun as it sets
And wake up to an early sunrise
You by my side
When my soul will be your soul
When your soul will be my soul
Because I will be from your flesh.

One day you shall be mine
All mine to cherish
Everyday will be a day to celebrate
Our love for each other
And I will love you forever

Kenyan Artistes

Ogopa Boys and girls-criticized for the kapuka beat, the Ogopa crew have managed to keep their presence in the Kenyan music market. E-sir was the greatest musician that came out of that stable. Their future is not very stable in the Kenyan market as evidenced by the CHAT awards held sometimes back. Of course if they can get more talent like Jerry Jo they much just go somewhere, who says kapuka won't sell

Calif Stable - I recognize their ability to churn lewd lyrics, Nonini , Jua Kali Rat a Rat, Pilipili, Flexx. If you like being naughty their lyrics are very theatrical. How do you explain
“Nashindwa nizame wapi , nyundo yangu sasa itauma wapi, sijui niachilie cheza nalo mpaka aseme jina zote ninalo— sijui niseme sijui niseme not sure if those are correct lyrics about it goes something like that.

Though they are not party songs unlike kapuka you cannot ignore their presence in the market, actually I can say I appreciate the Calif beat than the so obvious Kapuka beat.

Underground Artistes
What comes out of these artistes? No idea.

what is in a name

Really what is in a name? When i was in high school i had to lie my name was Tess or some other name to jamaaz, did it really matter what my name was. Back then,i thought it was cheap for me to tell a jamaa what was my real name before we even knew each other well.I'm sure many guys did that in High School.

When i go to the chat rooms i look for some funny name and not my name, so what would it matter if i used my real name.Chances are that i'm not even that known by anyone in that chat room that they would identify me if i used my real name. So i ask my self why is it really that i don't use my real name all the time especially to people i don't know. Even now i still find myself telling somebody i'm Susan especially if i'm not interested further in the person. Does it really matter to me that maybe Susan is busy telling somebody else that they are Silvana. Really what is in a name.

Kikuyu bashing

Should I apologize for being a Kikuyu woman
I was talking to some guys some time and at one time they made a reference to the way Kikuyu women look. Wella, I know we are not God’s gift to mankind read men, and not all Kikuyu women have that look which most girls of other tribes love to bash Kikuyu women about like my friend above but all the same is there any reason why anyone would want to make you feel that mother nature had them as favourites when designing them.
I’m quite tired of Kikuyu women bashing.

Law Male?

Carol Smart's (a feminist writer)article on the Man of Law, says that the Law is Male and that Male is white,it really got me thinking ,i could actually say Law is Male as to whether that Male is white is for another day.

Why is it that once a widow marries again the estate of the late husband ceases to devolve around her.This quote would make any woman cringe from Williams Commentaries on the Laws of England.
"By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in law that is, the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband: under whose wing, protection, and cover, she performs every thing; and is therefore called in our law-french a feme-covert; is said to be covert-baron, or under the protection and influence of her husband, her baron, or lord; and her condition during her marriage is called her coverture"
Is Law Male

what are we up to?

weekend super, just a few things to laugh and be happy about like a First lady disrupting a bash for a world bank representative i will not bitch about Lucy all i'm suggesting is that she needs to be confined promptly! i think this country has become short of stories so mama lucy has to keep entertaining us voila!
She has given us reason to talk about her the whole week , you know like the Wambui -Mbugua story when she married a jamaa fit to be her grandson, and you get the whole nation to talk about the same thing at the same time, such moments are rare. Meanwhile we forget that Biwot wants to join Govt and some LDP are not happy about it who cares all we want to talk about is Lucy and her latest stunts you know like walking around to all the News rooms at night, i was almost forced to think that she is a night runner, no she is not, she is just unhappy that some mistress is getting airtime in the news for giving out 10M and you know what she has to get her attention, you see we have already forgotten Wambui gave Othaya hospital 10M haven't we.
You know i love Wambui, even after she was denounced by the Prezzo, she took her body guards and walked around shoppin, actions speak louder than words, hell hath no fury like a woman denounced by a man and more if that man happens to be a prezzo.
This is not saga i want to end quickly two women, one man and the man is president.
