Iraqi Bloggers

I stumbled upon this blog today and found other interesting ones...
I think it's nice to be able to read directly from people in Iraq about what they're doing
so if you click on the word "blog" and look on the right-side panel...scroll down a bit...you'll see different blogs from people there...

I enjoyed this one in particular: Iraqi Wife ...it's the only one I really read...she also has links to other iraqi bloggers...

I mean this is as authentic as it gets...people living in the midst of it all. I read a letter on one of the sites....We sit here in our houses...watching the news...it doesnt seem real sometimes...it only takes a finger to change the channels...but these people are living everyday...every minute...
That letter could be the last the guy writes...the last time they hear from him.....you can only live for the moment...I read the letter and realized I was reading history...as in these are the things that get archived...

i felt something trickle down my cheeks...didnt even know i was crying


****
Just read that Hamas is giving up the soldier....I was watching the news...and I heard they were warning Israel...but Im like you're the one that went looking for trouble first, now you cant take the heat and want to issue warnings...Israel dont play that nonsense...anyone seen Munich? I went to see it after movie hopping from Derailed but my friend had to leave so I bought the DVD but Im yet to watch it....

but with everything going on...I was thinking we're about to start a 3rd world war....

who's safe?

Dear Ms. Davis

Girl.....GURL......gahhrrrrrllll

I want to let you know that you're always in my thoughts
Everyone has their situation and Im not going to preach about things getting better but you know they will...you can quote the bible for your ownself
I just want you to know that if you need me to cry for you...or with you, then I will
If you want me to get in my car and scream your frustrations out for you, then I will

I want to make everything better but I understand everyone has their own walk they must do. Im not going to say I understand your situation because I dont get the full impact of it. Just like I have my situation and you dont get the full impact of it. It's the way it is. We each only fully understand our "own" situation no matter what someone else says

I want you to smile and be happy always...even though that may not "always" happen

When you need someone to lean on, then I'll be there to the best of my capabilities. I will work with you and take you as far as I know how. Im only human so everything wont be "perfect".

Things are going well. Im in a weird place right now as well. When I wake up...I just want to lay in the bed. In the darkness. Letting thoughts go back and forth. Im not going to volunteer hours at work for a while

I almost lost if yesterday with my laptop. Now it's running slow but I guess I have to learn to be patient. I was on the verge of getting a new one when I went to bestbuy...but you know me...I have to do at least a month's research before I buy anything. Goodnews though. I found my highschool friend through myspace yesterday. Im finding a bunch of my friends which is nice. So that lifted my spirits a little bit. Im trying to find things now to find joy in.

I was upset yesterday and when I get upset I start to think about ALOT of things. I thought about my dad, my mom, my sister, my step-mom...of the battle I've dealt with just to get to where I am today...God is great...if for nothing...Just the fact that Im not in a mental institution because I couldnt handle the stress that came by way through the years...God is on His Throne for you too

In life you just have to keep moving on because life keeps moving whether you decide to continue the journey or not

So sister-friend...Let's continue to move together and encourage each other
Im hoping you're one of my "lifetime" friends...
well...you know you're going to be in my wedding...whenever that is...dont worry you'll get a year notice

Im glad L found you...glad you went to the post office the other day. God knows when to send people your way you know...to ease a little bit of what's going on. Im still wondering about "him"...silly of me I know. But I cant help it. When I dont know something, it's so easy to obssess about it you know...

oh...I recorded my poem on CD...found a way to save it and burn it. Im going to do some of the others I did before... Create a whole album of it. I really should look into being a music producer or something...

....one more thing.....Girl you know you gotta Woosah all that w/Tiff...she's not the devil but sometimes he uses people to get to you.....her more than most...but still...I'm always rooting for the underdog...so just be patient with her

I love you....Happy Birthday.
I'll have to take you to lunch/dinner.....maybe I'll make you some fried plantains since you love them...
it'll have to be one weekend....maybe this one...

AAAaaaaaaaarrrrggghhhhhHHHH

windows refused to load on my laptop today
I didnt want to frustrate myself
I couldnt find my XP pro CD so i decided to get the Toshiba Recovery CD which requires I delete all my files and start over
So I've lost all my pictures....all my music...AGAIN
I didnt want to get frustrated. I wanted to go to BestBuy before coming home but I came home first instead from work. I decided that I would just go out and buy a new laptop..I just cannot handle the stress of trying to figure out the system
I'll have to get another one...I mean how many times do i have to BUY music from Itunes...all my pictures...my mom, my dad....everything is gone
*hiss*
well at least Im back online...and I have to start the process of updating EVERYTHING....
every year it seems I always have some kind of PC issue...I mean that's why I bought this laptop last year...I couldnt be bothered with my other computer....

I should have saved all my music...well whatever...It's done is done...no use crying over spilt milk...first my car...then my laptop....

So right now Im taking deep breaths...
Im not very happy about this...so Im venting by blogging when all I feel like doing is smashing the laptop to pieces....maybe getting a bat and hitting the **** out of it...I feel like I have to physically release...

okay.....breathe in....breathe out....

utter nonsense

I'll just go to bestbuy....see if there's some new laptop i can get today cuz im not feeling this toshiba at all....my cousin was like...get toshiba...hp sucks...well TOSHIBA FREAKING SUCKS...all computers suck suck suck suck suck suck suck...you feel me?


oh shit....i just remembered....ALL MY SAVED instant messenger conversations.....all the documents...my sister's pictures...my mom's logos that I created

where the H is that freaking CD

These EYES of mine....

[sound on]
Look into my eyes and tell me what it is you see in me
Would you look into my eyes?
Look into my eyes and tell me what it is you see in me
Could you tell me what you see?
[sound off] - Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony


Ur DiamondHawk!!!

I have a routine
I wake up naturally around 4am
Watch the early morning news on ABC or is it NBC...I cant remember...but they do this thing w/the BBC where they count how many buses go by as the guy from london is updating them on recent news...i like doing it with them...a little off i know but that's me
so back to my routine...
Check my email, pay bills if I just got paid, check my account to see what charges came through and what's posted. I automatically log on to MSN IM and Yahoo Messenger. Most of the people (family mostly) that I chat with are in europe/nigeria so this is the oppurtunity I use to chat with them.

So I'm getting ready for work and my cousin Ayo is telling me about another cousin getting married in Kent. So of course I have to ask...does he have a WEBSITE? He doesnt know but he gives me my cousin's email address. Anyways I go do the mundane things I have to do and come back into my room to see if Ayo posted anything and that's when I saw it

UR DIAMONDHAWK!!!

you know the first thing we're inclined to do is tell the truth. so i said "Yeah" then added a question mark when I thought about it

My heart caught in my chest. I started to think about all the things that I'd been typing. You see the person that sent me that message, I look at him like a brother. I love him and his family and if he didnt know that...well now YOU DO! Hmm....did I note anything that I wouldnt want my "brother" to see? I couldnt help but laugh through my nervousness...

Kai...I've been caught...

I tried to do boldface for him
"Im supposed to be Diamondhawk....NO YOU'RE WRONG"
and all he does is laugh

I asked him...What's up with all these accusations this early morning...

He said Im going to your page RIGHT NOW

NO....no no no....nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......WAIT

too late

I asked him how he recognized me...he said my eyes...

MY EYES? WHAT ABOUT MY EYES....they're sexy, captivating, they pull you in...oh yeah...THOOOSSSEEE eyes... :-)

oh hell no partner the picture is going off OFF off...he said not to worry....
NOT TO WORRY?
how can this be INCOGNITO if people are going around identifying others by different body parts...

hmmmmm?

Bloodshed in Ogudu

God I just want to thank you for my life and everything that you've done to keep me safe from harm. I shall live and not die in Jesus' Name...my friends and family shall live and not die in Jesus' Name...Amen

I tried to call Bob today...and I couldnt get through. With me I start to freak out when I cant get in touch with anyone with all the millions of phones each person carries. My mind starts to wander and sometimes depending on its path, tears will form as I offer a prayer and try to be positive.

Bob went with his mom to the Nepa office to settle a bill. Nepa (the electric company in nigeria) was outrageously billing them for an unoccupied apartment that they lease out. The manager wasnt there so Bob left his mom there to go to work. His mom called him but he ignored the call. His dad called him and he answered. His dad sounded frantic asking him where he was. He calmly replied that he was on his way to work.

Turns out that Zenith Bank was robbed. The bank was directly opposite the Nepa office.These robbers shot people dead and left many injured. They shot two security guards, the bank manager and a customer. Accordingly to my source, there was a pool of blood all over the bank. The robbers hijacked a bus to go to the bank and shot the driver of the bus. They were shooting every where. Even Bob's brother Doyen, who goes to a school nearby claims to have heard the shots. These people walked to a getaway speedboat which was about 1km away from the crime. They shot people as they were WALKING to the getaway boat..people playing soccer, an okada man...In all this, there was no police, they werent caught....All this took place like 10 mins after Bob left the NEPA office. And of course the police show up AFTER THE FREAKING FACT. Im not even sure if they being there would have helped matters.

I mean they got what they wanted and callously took the lives of many away. WHY?

May God punish them. May they never know one moment of peace until they atone for their misdeeds. May mayhem/confusion/doubt/mistrust reign in their midst. Whatever they stole, will not do good for them. May they choke on the blood of the people they killed to committ their evil act.

God...you keep showing me reasons that I should be thankful. Im sorry God that Im not everything that I know I should be and Im not doing everything that I should be but I just want to take the time out to thank you. You're better to me than Ive been to myself. So many mere misses and people say it's luck but God I know that it is You that has intervened every single time. Thank you for not letting me die that day on the bridge. Thank you that my brakes work when I think Im a Nascar driver. Thank you for granting me wisdom and the intellect to dissect situations to my benefit. Thank you for granting me your spirit. God that helps me be more discerning. I love you God. There is none like you and all I can say is Thank you Father.

(singing...thank you jesus, thank you my lord. Whatever I am now it is by your grace. Many are dying, many are perishing whatever (wherever) I am now it is by your grace)

The Lake House

I went to the movies today after work and saw the Lake House starring Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. It is a great romantic movie. Im going to drag all my friends and see it over and over again and when the DVD comes out I'll be the first in line to buy it and watch it over and over again. This movie is along the lines of the Notebook and Sweet Home Alabama. I actually had the Notebook for a while. A friend of mine recommended it to me and I figured for a guy to recommend a supposedly "romantic" movie, it must have been good so I got it last year and didnt watch it until MD came to my place and watched it. She told me about it so I finally took time out to see it this year. The Notebook is the reason I keep a box of Kleenex handy.

Studies have actually shown that your hormone level is altered when you watch a romantic movie. It can boost progesterone levels more than 10 percent, bringing couples closer together. A little romance never hurt nobody. My intro to romance...was started by my cousin. She introduced me to romance novels when I was 11 or 12. Actually I seized a book from her and took it with me to england on holiday and ended up reading the book and now, romance novels have become a constant in my place of living. I like to read...I read a book a day...well not really but when I buy a book I love, I typically start and finish it the same day and then run out and buy the sequel if it exists or is available...so Im constantly in the bookstore buying and buying...one of the reasons I volunteer so much of my time at work.

One thing that people (my mom and sister most especially) make clear to me is that romance novels are unrealistic but take a step back and think...are they really? OK...they are...but all Im tryna say is....Im sure that somewhere in this world a man is sweeping a lady off her feet and someone in her relationship/marriage believes she's in heaven on earth. Yeah I know it promotes sex before marriage...but you know the underlying essence of the story is not about the sex although it helps turn the pages...it's really about the journey to finding "the One"...

God said "All things are possible if you ONLY believe"...well I believe my man can and will sweep me off my feet and carry me into the sunset...well not exactly. What I do believe is that I will have a man that my love will be renewed for, with each thought, each look, with each second that ticks by...and that same feeling with be reciprocated...and enveloped with respect, mutual understanding.....interspersed with minor arguments/difference of opinions so life is not so boring

Actually I wanted to write about The Lake House, what is all this nonsense...

Im not going to spoil it for people who havent seen it...although Im one of those people that likes to know the end of a movie. Even when I buy a romance novel, I go right to the end of the book...if I dont like the ending...it goes back on the shelf

No grotesque groping of body parts or stupid lines declaring undying love that they should have realised even before the script was written...none of that...The Lake House is pure fantasy that you wish could be reality.Im not a real movie critic and cannot use words that I need a dictionary to find the meaning for to help you understand the essence of the movie. All I know is that it's a great movie and I enjoyed it. It left me feeling all warm and fuzzy...wouldnt have minded having a certain someone's arm aroound me while I watching it. I think it's a great date movie or a great girls night out movie

so go see it....

Im yet to see X-Men...but I'll make the time. I heard it was great

wedding website update

www.rhynaandbj.com

my friends are always wondering how i come up with these sites...
Well something weird happened with this particular site which I got from the groom's brother.

I got a call from a client and who was it on the phone?
the BRIDE on the website...I mean...how bizarre is that. I've never met her or the groom...never spoken to her and all of a sudden she said her name and Im in my head im like "I know you"..."I was just looking at your pictures hours before". I wonder if she knew, if she would have felt violated in some way. I mean strangers stalking your website...

Well since the wedding is in ATL, I'll be attending...the brother said I could
come...so I'll be there with my entourage. But I dont know who gave him permission to invite people...I mean to my knowledge he's not putting money down for food and all that.
Reminds me of my brother. Every year, we had a party for his birthday and WHY? because the boy would take it upon himself to invite people even though he was told there wouldnt be a party. We'd be chilling in the house and all of a sudden, people start arriving at the house dressed up with gifts. I've always thought he was spoiled...that is until he went to Mayflower...that school is no joke. My mom went to visit him and came back crying. Needless to say soon after that trip he was shipped off to the states.

Anyways, back to my original train of thought: My friend told me something a few weeks back...she CRASHED a wedding?
I've never heard of anyone going to a wedding on his/her own without being invited or going with someone that was invited. She got dressed in trad and went with a friend....WITH A FRIEND!!! I was so shocked. I just cant do that... this is the wedding she crashed. She just went to the website, got the details and WENT. Talk about being bold. I couldnt do anything but laugh when she told me....I mean how do you respond to something like that

She reasoned that she knew people that knew the couple but those people that she knew that had been invited for some reason or other werent able to go. So she figured, if they were, she'd have followed...so why not go...hmmm...I just CANNOT do that. She had fun. The place was crowded. I mean someone took it upon herself to make sure she and her friend got a seat...i mean went all out to get space....if only they knew

well we're all six degrees away from knowing ourselves...with the web, it's more like a click away. I got an email the other day and saw Donnie McClurkin's name next to mine...he has aol and I added him to my buddy list. I just havent had the courage to say hello yet but I know when he's online and what not...he leaves detailed away messages such as "I'll be in XYZ and blah blah blah"

Well right now we're eagerly awaiting di and dee to update their site with their wedding pictures. I was talking to Banke who has basically been stalking their site...she's like "how long is the honeymoon now?"....ah ah...they just got married like last week...give them time...I'd actually forgotton all about the site but now that she's brought it to my attention, I'll be sure to check it for any updates...

A little humor: I resign

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities
of an 8-year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and
make ripples with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms are better than money because
you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade
stand with my friends on a hot summer day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple.

When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables,
and nursery rhymes,

but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what
you didn't know and you didn't care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should

make you worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair.

That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is possible.

I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and
be overly excited by the little things again.

I want to live simple again.

I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news,

how to survive more days in the month than there is
money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip,

illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind
word, truth, justice, peace, dreams,

the imagination, mankind, and making angels
in the snow.

So...here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit
cards and all my responsibility.

I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to
catch me first, 'cause,

"Tag! You're it."

Music I'm Feeling: The Promise

I found myself on David and Bisola's wedding website today. I was looking through their engagement and wedding pictures...the people and the pictures are beautiful...
For some reason I turned my volume up and I heard this song
I knew who it was immediately

Her voice is unique. I remember her for the early 80s when my elder sister used to play her every morning. It was that memory and the songs that prompted me to go searching for her CD about a year ago. I remember back then I wasnt sure if she was a man or a woman...but one thing is for sure, her music has depth

This particular song transports me to long, cool summer days...
The days that you can approach with mild abandon
giggling and spinning around until u collapse beneath the shade of a tree
and then you can close your eyes with a deep sigh and dream...
smiling your way till the sun goes down, a gentle breeze caressing you
well it is what i imagine i'd like to be doing listening to this song
It's delivery has a calming effect on me...wanting everything to go in slow motion

lol
what am i ranting about...it's just a song right? no biggie
hmmm...well the power of music

as the track plays, i find myself harmonizing along with her...
Tracy Chapman is truly a great and true artist who probably doesnt get the recognition that's due her

One of my favorite tracks by her is Baby can I hold you

If you've never heard of her, then click on the link and you'll see what im talking about...she's one person that appeals to everyone no matter what genre of music you're into...

Anyways, if you look through the wedding pictures, the first track that plays while scrolling through the pictures is The Promise...below are the words...I'll try to get a link thru my audioblog



If you wait for me then I'll come for you
Although I've traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart
If you think of me If you miss me once in awhile
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
If you dream of me like I dream of you
In a place that's warm and dark
In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
I've longed for you and I have desired
To see your face your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
I've longed for you and I have desired
To see your face, your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
Please say you'll be waiting

Together again
It would feel so good to be
In your arms
Where all my journeys end
If you can make a promise If it's one that you can keep, I vow to come for you
If you wait for me and say you'll hold
A place for me in your heart.

Getting to know me...

was wondering what meme means...
saw this on Olawunmi's blog and he decided to tag everyone....AT LAST...someone has tagged me...yeah i know he tagged everyone reading it...but I choose to believe it is a personal invitation...LOL....and so as not to deny such a wonderfully issued request....

1. If you could be doing what you really want to be doing for a living, what would it be?
fashion designer extraordinaire....create magic for people's bodies...that would be just great...to be able to transform anyone into anything using my imagination

2. If you could slap the shit out of any famous person, alive or dead, who would it be?
Hitler because of the horror's of Nazi Germany...Im not sure a slap would do it
Baba Sege...I believe his record speaks for itself

3. What's the dumbest decision you've made in the past 5 years?
I honestly wish I'd majored in something else while in College...so...I guess listening to my college advisor instead of following my heart

4. Give up one for a year: (good) sex or (good) music.
well since i've technically never had sex giving it up wouldnt be an issue...cant do without music...just cant...

5. Dudes, would you rather have a big dick or a great sense of humor? Ladies, nice tits & azz or common sense?
well for the right price, you can get an attractive enough attacker and defender but you CANNOT buy common sense...so that would be my pick

6. So you've been invited to an all expense paid Blogger Prom in The Bahamas. You're sitting at the bar on the beach. Which blogger do you want to join you for hours of good conversation?
well I dont read that many blogs so I guess I dont have much to choose from...I like low...we've talked but never met...what better place to meet than the bahamas...I like dilichi as well, something quite refreshing about her...
I think it'd be nice to hang with Olawunmi but...

7. Which blogger would you most like to cuddle with on the beach? (and don't defer to your current significant other either. Infidelity won't count against you. Duh.)
---

8. You're going on a 5 hour road trip...which 5 CDs do you bring?
Well I usually make a mixed CD...depends if Im feeling holy....or wanting to get crunk...
whatever's hot for the moment....it's just a 5hr trip....on second thot, if it takes more than 3.5hrs to get there by road, then I'll be flying

9. Would you rather bury your children young or have your children bury you young?
None of the above thank you very much...Me and my children shall live to see the third generation...AMEN

10. What's your biggest insecurity?
that my best and who I am wont ever be enough...

11.What's the first blog you read every day...or however often you read them?
varies but I (& my coworkers) mostly read Olawunmi's because he typically has the most entertaining/thought provoking entries and then Nyjaguy...Im hoping he'll reveal something so that I can figure out exactly where or who he is...I know he's in Georgia...so if anyone has any info...pass it on... :-)

12. When's the last time you peed your pants?
I remember I was in school...about 7yrs old...i just could not hold it...I made up some story about falling into a basin of water...I wonder now if that story washed...

13. Which was better, your first kiss or your first pay check?
hmmmm....I mean for years, I watched TV and saw how passionate everyone would be getting when they kissed right? did it happen to me? NO...why wasnt I tearing off my clothes and utterly breathless...if anything the kiss took me my surprise...it was in megaplaza...and he just reached over while we were going through some CDs and kissed me...infront of his friends and stuff...utterly disappointed.....and you know I didnt think I knew how to kiss right so I started recruiting people to teach me ...

anyways my first paycheck for sure...

14. Do you have kids? Want kids?
Not yet...But I definitely want them within the sanctity of my matrimonial home...im thinking 6 but it's entirely negotiable...I'd like to adopt as well

15. You get dropped off at home after the office holiday party by your bitch azz boss that you can't effing stand...you exit the car and he peels out, runs a red light at your corner and rolls up an unsuspecting midget. The next day the midget watch groups are on TV outraged at the heartless hit and run, and are calling for any witnesses to please come fwd...that half dead midget has a family at home waiting on Christmas presents. Would you take $1000 hush money? $500? $100? A six pack?
a measley $1k? Im pretty sure the reward money for any information would be greater...My satisfaction would come from watching the boss squirm for a couple of days before turning him/her in

16. Live the rest of your life without your eyebrows or your fingernails?
living w/o eyebrows is doable...I'll just draw them on whenever the need arises

17. What makes you angry?
Injustice...might have something to do with me being a libra

18. What makes you horny?
OH NOOOOOOOOOO......I dont even want to get started.
I remember this one time at work, I cooked for this guy...we were swapping our recipes...and he cooked for me...so I was leaving work and he was walking me down to his car to give me the meal he'd cooked for me...and all of a sudden all I could think about was him pinning me to the wall, his hands....
the curse of reading romance novels I guess

19. What makes you nervous?
well job wise....being summoned by someone with greater authority and I dont know why...

20. What makes you smile?
putting people in their place...
my little cousins/nieces/nephews....
looking at pictures of my boyfriend...remembering different parts of our conversations
something that tickles me though...and I just saw it is why Im writing about it...is the TV commercial where the doctor advises before taking viagra be sure you're strong enough to have sex....

Im not so sure im interested in doing another of this meme thing...it's too time consuming...like an online-reinvented "slum" book....or maybe im just tired...

A little humor

An Igbo man went to the holy land and he visited the sea of Galilee. When asked to take a boat,he asked how much? $500 said the boatman. 'Chineke', screamed the igbo man 'no wonder Jesus walked on water!'

Collide


The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Don't stop here
I lost my place
I'm close behind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to ryhme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide
