A to Z of Me

Those who know me know that I dont like talking about myself. I can talk about what I do/did/done but rarely about myself. My mother says mo d'inu - cant say it in English - but like won ni lati te ikun e ki oro to j'ade (they have to press my stomach to get words out of me).

My father said I had the mentality of a secret agent. Blame him. From a very early age, I had read all the Ian Fleming, Arthur Conan Doyle, James Hadley Chase, Nick Carter, Alistair Maclean, Mario Puzo and others in his library and I almost always identified with the bad guys. I called myself The Dark Agent. In fact at some point, my favorite quote was "If I told you that, I would have to kill you". I actually said that to my Dad. Walahi.

I stole this A-Z meme from Mrs. Somebody's blog. Well I guess it was a tag. I think we are alike as I seem to agree with some of her answers (except the ekpang nkukwo bit). I will try to answer the ones I can. So listen very carefully, I shall say this only once...

Accent: None. (Have been accused of all sorts of things over this. Once detained at the Togolese border for 'NOT talking like a Nigerian')

Booze: Strong H2O - does that count? I drink it everyday.

Chore I Hate: Cant really think of one.

Dogs/Cats: Cats

Essential electronics: Laptop, phone.

Favourite Perfume: Davidoff Cool Water

Gold/Silver: Gold

Hometown: Lagos

Insomnia: Sometimes

Job title: Business Development Manager

Kids: 1 son

Living arrangements: Flat

Most admired trait: Smile

Number of sexual partners: Currently?.....One.

Overnight hospital stays: Yes

Phobia: Brokaphobia

Quote: "Dieu est donc moi suis""GOD is therefore I am" - Me

Religion: Eckankar

Siblings: 5 (3 brothers, 2 sisters )

Time I usually awake: About 5 a.m

Unusual talent: I can break anything down to the basics. I hardly ever forget names.

Vegetable I refuse to eat: Cant think of any.

Worst habit: Procrastination, biting and chewing my finger nails

X-rays: Several

Yummy foods I make: Coconut rice, Ewa agonyin, Moi-moi

Zodiac sign: Leo (28th July)

Now that you know ALL about me, I guess I have to kill you.

Dark Agent. Out.

You think we are alike??? I can be weird like that.I'm not who people think I am.If you think I'm good,You just may not know I could be as bad as they come.And when I mean BAD,I don't mean,Killing folks BAD or evil BAD.I can be as BAD as BAD.
I could be BAD.I'm tired of blogging about weight loss.I want to bring out the BAD side of Mrs S.The side Ubong Da wants to read about.

stAt All: Many thanx for stopping by. I am in Ibadan right now and cant really write much. Will update as soon as i am back to base.
@Mrs S.- 'Now Class, raise up your hand if you want to see the BAAAAD side of Mrs. S?' 'I, Sir' (Both hands raised).

@Andy - One particular Togolese Immigration guy took an interest in my case and wont let me go o. He said I dont look like and dont 'talk' like a Nigerian. We later realised that to him I looked like an Igbo man but didnt talk like an Igbo man and that was a time when Igbo guys took over Lome.
Depending on where I go in Nigeria, people have called me Igbo, Calabar, Idoma, Tiv, Urhobo even though I be quarter-cast Yoruba man.

@CWB - You will teach me how you do it o! Such rapidity in updating.

@Catwalq - Nuff said Sis. Will check it out.

@Atutupoyoyo - Many thanx for stopping by.

@Badderchic - You don well now to dey call person Albino Agent abi? Many thanx.
