I am awake...finally! I have some "home work" for my job that I need to get done and I have touched nothing yet! It's a huge pile of papers and ...woe is me....I am really intimidated just looking at the content!
So Zim gets to vote.... who wants to bet Mugabe wins??? LOL...I would like to hope there will be no rigging...but what the heck...that would be useless.
Also in the news-- Dith Prahn died. You know him... that journalist from Cambodia that survived the Khmer rouge era and was the center of the 'killing fields' film? If you haven't seen the film I would highly recommend it. It's thought provoking and just shows what happens when people think they are in charge of the world and all who live in it.
If anyone out there is still doubting the recession, I have news for you. They just laid off 50 people where I work, and they have another 50 people to go or something like that. Also 3 people that I know have been laid off. One is lucky enough that they will pay her for another 4 months while she looks for another job which was awfully kind of them I think. Gosh! I really miss the days gas was a dollar!
Ummm...yeah it looks like it's April already...and nope...still haven't done my taxes! Who is surprised by the that? Procrastinator queen has done it again!
Oh and another thing before I forget! Why are a lot of Zambian "elite" so damned proud of the fact that they can not write or read their language? or even speak it for that matter? I find that so retarded!!! They use it like a badge of honor "Oh I can not read in that language" yet you read plenty 'well' in Ebonics and have the accent down packed! Somebody was trying to write something in Bemba today...and my goodness I was distraught when I saw the spellings! I am not the worlds best bemba speller...and for that reason I have a Bemba dictionary so I can either look up word use or spellings. Okay, so my thing is...and this goes for everyone in the world... if you're not proud of your culture who will be??? Same as if you're not proud of yourself...who will be???
Lol...look at this conversation between my friend and her 5 year old. My friend had just finished chastising her 5 year old and the child starts crying:-
Mother:- why are you crying?
5 year old :- because I want daddy
Mother:- daddy is at work, what do you want him?
5 year old:- Because I'm having A BAD DAY! (drama!)
LOL....I laughed so hard...a 5 year old having bad day?????

All I have done this week is eat, eat and eat!!! Monday, I went out with friends for dinner, then wednesday we had a farewell dinner for a co-worker--and as usual I had people shocked with the size of my cleavage:-) Women all react the same when they see it and men aren't brave enough to comment.
I even ate breakfast twice in one day because I had people buying me breakfast and lunches...:-) dude!! The food this week was better than last week, which is awesome! The best thing that I ate this week would have to be the huge chocolate chocolate chip and fudge cookie:-) ummmm!!
Then Friday I went out for Peggy's B'day dinner at the new Sushi Hana location on falls road. Quite frankly I liked it better than the other location: it's classier, and has more free parking....The food is the same which is a plus, but my favorite waitress is at the other location--which is of course a minus:-)
I spent most of my weekend in D.C. (are you really surprised?) Saturday, we went shopping to leesburg pike, and then we went out to Juste Lounge again--this time to experience the saturday night mingle/ international night thing. I quite liked it. I danced none stop...then when I was doing the dutty wine--my hair piece fell of!!! That was a major Kodak moment:-)lololol!!!! I sinply picked it up and re-adjusted my look!!! Dust yourself off andf try again;-) My leg muscles really hurt, and I think I drank too much...okay I know I drank too much! The last few weeks though I haven't had any wine!!! Can you believe that??? It's been hard liquor on the weekends only and no wine...such a sad day in nenaland. This one dude bought us drinks and then breakfast, then he drove us home...he's in the navy--maybe that's why he has manners, I don't know:-)
We got home at almost 5am, and little miss sunshine (that's me!), was awake by 8am and ready to get going for a fun day in D.C. Now those two little french chicks are too dar gon slow!!! I woke them up early, but they weren't ready till like 2pm or so:-) Then the walking began.....oooohhh Lawwwd! I think we did 5 K with hang overs and just plain tiredness.
We went for the cherry blossom festival and and just had a fun time listening to music, walking around and striking poses...:-)
The day came to an end when we found out that apple in montgomery mall is out of iPhones and so is AT&T!!!!! How gay is that???? The frenchies are trying to buy two to take home with them and the store has no idea when they will restock.
Lawd have mercy...I am so tired! I need to get my behind in bed and will continue this session tomorrow. Ahhh...the life of a social butterfly never seems to have a dull moment:-)

After our little dinning episode, we went out to 'Juste Lounge' for their sex in the city Fridays (pictures will also be available at http://www.justelounge.com/ at some point in the week)...aaaahhhh the life of a celebrity! *hair toss*. We had a great time! There weren't too many people because I suspect most people go to juste lounge on Saturday's for their International night. I plan on doing one of those at some point and will let you know the verdict. I was impressed with the group of people there any way because although there weren't a lot of us, it was quite lively and everyone got up and danced...and best of all several men bought our drinks! Those are the signs of an excellent bar/ club in my opinion. It wasn't sweaty and full of kids... it wasn't rowdy either, Just a bunch of people looking to unwind and have a few laughs with friends. Yeah European Kids though drink as much as they smoke I think... coz those little un's I went with weren't shy to lift a glass. We went from Vodka and redbull to margarita's to Tequila... we were just randomly naming drinks when someone asked if they could refill our glasses:-)
They had a Macy's flower show which was really cool this weekend end. It was also fun to watch real shoppers shop till they drop:-) Oh and we took a picture with spider man, and went into the barbie house:-) too cool man! too cool.
I was supposed to be co-driving home---wait a minute! how come gas heading towards new york city was only $3.07????? And we're like 10 cents over and more?? who does Sunoco know to get great low rates in those cities??? Shouldn't they cost more? Any way, I was supposed to be co-driving, but lack of sleep was causing me to hallucinate...we left NYC at almost mid-night and I was half asleep and seeing buses and people where they weren't ..lol...so I knew not to touch that wheel:-) I kept sort of awake by talking the whole way because everyone in the back was asleep and I didn't want our kind chauffeur to fall asleep too:-) I slept till something like 9am because my mummy called me then. I tried to sleep later...but oh well. Hunger called and I responded:-) Then here I am....
Happy Easter...and I hope you had a great weekend--lotsa luv...me:-)

I am not going to get on you for ethics and blah blah because we've got the ever-so-moral- never-get-laid republicans (yeah right!) to do all that.
All I wanna know is....dude...why didn't you call me?????? You were right around the corner spending $80 000... you shoulda let a sista know!!! For my half price 'she don't have to know special'... nobody would have found out about us!!! I don't keep lists and I am not in the habit of lewinsky-ing my dresses. I would have been totally discreet for the price!
Double damn! You shoulda called a sista dude! I coulda used that money!!!

- You made fun of that person at work
- You didn't help that beggar on the street
- You were too damned lazy today man!
- That thing that you did--ummm honey chile that weren't too cool aiight?
Then I would write back and say:
"My dearest God, I am sorry for mistakes I made and this is how I will rectify my error in judgement
- I will try to understand the person at work a little better and help them change a little so I am not tempted to laugh at them. They may mock me and smack me for what I will say, and I am prepared to bare that cross.
- I will go back to that street corner and look for that beggar... chances are he's still waiting on me to come back.
- I will spend all day cleaning the house tomorrow and do most of the laundry tonight
- I know it weren't cool. I take full responsibility for my action and will await your letter of punishment suggestions.

I am making Nena's not-so-famous ribs today, so I am really looking forward to lunch oh and I have cheesecake too that I need to take care of:-) I am pretending to celebrate cousin M's birthday which was yesterday *happy birthday mama!*... So really in general, I have been celebrating since yesterday...lol
Yesterday was Gabriella's birthday celebration as well...now don't ask me how I got caught up in cooking a HUGE pot of Nshima for the party... and now i feel like I have semi carpal tunnel... dude, I never cook that much nshima! There was so much food though...big sashilad vegetables and another pot of what looked like Katapa...(I should be more observant), then there was fresh tilapia, chicken, sausages, fried rice...ect...you know how we roll zed style:-)
After the pwando...(which I didn't intend to stay there that long for but had to wait for Vicky--who is perpetually late!), I went to Dinner with friends, then we went to coldstone creamery for ice-cream...which I don't understand because we were drinking wine:-), then I went dancing and woke up with serious munchies!!!
Yesterday was also Johnny and Vicky's anniversary...so congrats to you guys....:-) Mwabombeni!!!!
Oh and highlight of the week:- The Joint Commission on accreditation of health care were visiting our hospital this past week and anyone who knows the importance of this visit knows it was no fun tip-toeing about the building and hoping not to run into any of the evaluators!!! We were on extra good behaviour and it was well worth it because guess what??? They found ZERO issues with my hospital...and only 3% of hospital's in the United States of America ever get zero dings!!! So that is quite an accomplishment for the facility and I am proud to be working there! The evaluators where especially impressed with my department... so double joy on my part:-)
Then Thursday night...I suddenly got the urge to write at 11pm...of all the things in the world!!! I had been listening to my baby daddy #5 John Legend...and he inspired me! Can I just tell you that I'm like totally in love with John Legend???? He used to be baby daddy number 6, but he's been promoted... so the list now reads:
- My real Mr Darcy:-)
- Mr. After 5...!!! one day i'll get over it...lol!!
- Mwenge:-) a.k.a bashi Junior!!!
- tie between Denzel Washington and George Clooney
- John Legend.... (she don't have to know!)
- L.L cool J
- Ne-yo (my sexy love!)
- Collin firth
- Salman Khan
I was thinking that if one were to write a book about me, it would be entitled 'She danced unshackled'. It just seems fitting:-)...
any way it's chow time!!!
