Its that time again, Iâ€™m house-sitting in Bugolobi and as such I wonâ€™t have very regular posts. This time round, I am not blessed with a TV so huge you can play table tennis on its screen, but what I do have is a wireless internet connection with no computer. Itâ€™s like that line in that song by that woman who says its like rain on your wedding dayâ€¦its like inter-nets, with no com-puter.
I also happen to have DSTV which I utilize for work. Everyone else watches TV to unwind, but not I. I do it so I can earn a salary.
IDOL AND DISODERLY
Idols, also known as that show where people go to sing and stuff, is coming to an end. Coming up is Big Brother Africa 3. The show that saw Tanzania in bed with Angola and Nigeria.
It goes without saying that I am really psyched for this thing. Its not even the whole prospect of viewing â€œpublic displays of romantic actionâ€, but the fact that it is multi dimensional. Something is always happening. Or someone.
And thereâ€™s always someone we figure we are better than. It wasnâ€™t quite the same with the Idols experience coz the lads and lasses there-on have better singing voices than I do, which is not saying much.
HERBS AND SPICES
I was asked recently whether I have had the opportunity to smoke weed beforeâ€¦yes. Ages ago. And it made me paranoid, walking around telling people to stop looking at me like I was high. They werenâ€™t looking at me. Hell, not even in my general direction. I take solace in the knowledge in knowing someone else was higher than I and propositioned a lady twice thinking heâ€™d landed on two different peopleâ€¦
â€œmadam, how much? What? THREE THOUSAND? Keep your ****!â€ individual proceeds to stagger a bit, turn around and (meeting the same lady again) asks, â€œmadam, let me give you two thousand five hundred for a quickieâ€¦â€
HOW HIGH ARE YOUâ€¦ HI, HOW ARE YOU
I went for comedy night recently after vowing not to and had myself a grand olâ€™ time. The problem is, I donâ€™t know whether it was because I was drinking quite a bitâ€¦ oh and I met some dude that was on the prowl for some â€œfine laydeez over hurrâ€â€¦ Told him heâ€™d probably get himself some if he made sure no one caught on that he was from around â€œherrrâ€™â€¦fo shoâ€™!
I watched WANTED the other day and I gotta admit, I was impressed with how mature weâ€™ve gotten as a cinema going er, as cinema-goers. Seriously. Any one that has watched this movie will agree with me, it is so full of it, in the old days people would stand up and clap every so often (LOSERS ALL!), however every so often people would just look on, staring in aweâ€¦ to borrow a word, with â€œeye-gasmsâ€..but no claps. Impressive shit really.
â€¦and I be here saying I am unemployed
I was on phone with a pal when the issue of my house-sitting came up, says she, â€œI didnâ€™t know you did that, you should have sat for me when I was awayâ€¦â€ Say I, â€œ I only do plush places..â€ Says sheâ€¦ well, you know what you said
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Allow me to introduce yâ€™all to. . .this blog
I watched Speed Racer, finally! The reason I was watching it in the first place is because it is from those brothers that decided, â€œscrew physics, a guy can dodge bullets with his mindâ€¦â€ The movie plays out like an advert for paintâ€¦or a device for torturing epileptic insurgents in Iraq.
