My good and faithful Silifatu

Hello folks, how've you been? Nothing much to blog about. This is as random as it gets here, 'cos i'll be jumping from topic to topic so please bear with me. I watched Deja Vu last nite, the one with Denzel Washington. That movie was weird, talk about people operating in the past and future. Can't wait until i go to NY, so excited. I've managed to increase the number of those of us meeting up. Abbey, u better show up. I did something silly within the space of 3 days i went shopping and i'm ashamed to say how much i spent. I'm so so broke it ain't funny. This Christmas, i didn't shop for anyone but myself. I can't believe it still. Sorry fellas, especially ma famille 'cos y'all are getting no Christmas presents from me. I'll pray for you at least that's more than whatever gift i may give u. Even Kesto, my NY toaster (remember him?) asked me what i wanted for Christmas. I'm like nothing 'cos i'd feel bad if i don't get him som'n in return. He's like that doesn't matter. Hmm... How can i start collecting gifts from him, then after he'd start yarning me some cock 'n bull.

Yesterday morning, my first boyfriend ever called me from Nigeria. Talk about a serious surprise o. I was shocked. As in, he remembered me after so long, hmmm... Nice dude he is, but that's a closed chapter. Funny thing is that we never broke up "officially" but things just fizzled out between us. Hearing his cool and calm voice again, gave my mind the liberty to drift away but there's no way anything can develop betwen us, 'cos we're just on 2 different paths. I should blog about him someday. D another of my friends/ toaster/ brother in Christ (lol) from my uni days in Nigeria called me the same day also. Wetin na? Not that i'm doing shakara or anything, but why is it that those i'm feeling like OF (yeah his name just had to come up), are not the ones calling? Midnight gister also called me this week, that reminds me i need to return his call. Wharrisgoingon? Do i smell holiday romance in the air? Hmmm...

As i was going to the mall today, that's how my Silifa started overheating. At first, i thot 'twas the smoke from the exhaust of the car ahead of me. Then i started smelling smoke. I quickly pulled into the Wendy's parking lot. Turned off the engine, opened the hood and the radiator cover. The radiator was empty as in no water, not even a drop! Last time i put water in was the beginning of summer, actually end of April/ early May. I sha begged 'em for water and poured it in, the thing was bubbling like crazy and foaming. After about 10 minutes, the water settled and evaporated almost immediately. I even had to pray at a point o, 'cos this pouring water and it evaporating business went on after 6 attempts of filling it up with water. I don't take care of my dear Silifa. Once i start Silifa and she moves, i'm good to go. I don't check anything. Matter of fact, my registration expired in November. Gotta renew that, before my enemy gets into police yawa.

One would think i'd have learned by now how to treat Silifa right, but no. Last year the same overheating problem happened. It got so bad that the lid had expanded 'n exploded (i think) and flew off. So i was driving Silifa without the radiator cover. Silifa has been so good to me, but i never treat her right. Hopefully, she won't get my a** stranded one day. Did i tell u guys i even broke the passenger side mirror? I brushed past someone's car and broke it. That day i really did have a lot on my mind. Silifa has been amputated seriously, but she still moves.

Anyways, if i don't blog before Christmas and New year, have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed new year. By the way, my birthday is January 9 so i'm expecting my presents in the mail y'all.
