The Tag and other things...........

First things first, let me deal with this tag from Mocha...........


1)WE HAVE TO POST THESE RULES BEFORE WE GIVE YOU THE FACTS.

2)PLAYERS START WITH 8 RANDOM FACTS/HABITS ABOUT THEMSELVES.

3)PEOPLE WHO ARE TAGGED NEED TO WRITE THEIR OWN BLOG AND THEIR 8 THINGS AND POST THESE.

4) AT THE END OF YOUR BLOG POST, YOU NEED TO CHOOSE 8 PEOPLE TO GET TAGGED AND LIST THEIR NAMES (Scared yet…..you better be!)

5)DON’T FORGET TO LEAVE THEM A COMMENT TELLING THEM THEY ARE TAGGED, AND TO READ YOUR BLOG



I have done two posts with 50 random facts but let me think of a few...

1. Due to working my current job in customer service, I have developed a new found dislike for white people. Yes, because that's most of the people I deal with and I must say they are the most spoilt, crass and rudest people I have come across. No wonder no-one else in the world doesn't like them. Oh and I also think that the idiot who came up with the phrase "the customer is always right" should be taken into a dark alley, ass raped and shot in the back of the head.

2. I know this will earn me alot of flack but I'm going to say it anyway. Due to personal preference and seeing all the drama that goes on in inter-Kenyan dating here in the States, I don't see myself dating a Kenyan chic in the States in the near future.

3. Despite being here several years I have never warmed up to American football and Baseball. The start stop nature of American sports does nothing for me, I like games that flow.

4. I feel nothing for porn. You watch one and you've watched them all! The only thing that changes is numbers, colors, genders and the holes being used.

5. I think I may have watched too much "Will and Grace" because the first year I was here there was Coming out day when gay and lesbian folk go out in public share their predi I mean orientation, and the first thing I thought when I looked at their table was; " damn those are some ugly and frumpy gays! Where were you when the style was being doled out?"
Well I now know that they too come in all shapes and colors!

6. Most people bore me. This doesnt mean that I am more interesting than most people but just that I have a very short attention span so someone has to be really interesting or at least useful for me to consider keeping them in my life, that is why I have far more acquaintances than I do friends.

7. Just because I am soft spoken people think I am a push over, I may not always fight you up front but I do take my time and plan sweet revenge and pay back. Plus unlike most people I dont carry bile and let it burn away at me, I just put it in my pending list and go on with my life till the chance comes round to get my own back. Life is too short to mess up with grudges and worry.

8. I think most of you old reader read my post about my beloved dog that I had to give away and saw the picture that I posted on my blog. Well that picture was one of the straws that broke the camel's back as regards the last chic I was dating, you see there was this time we were to give each other gifts, so I got her some tasteful gifts. What she did in turn was find the picture of my beloved dog, I had left it in a book I lent her and she decided to draw a picture of the dog for me as a gift. You see looking at that picture depresses me, but no she decided to draw an A1 size picture and give it to me as a gift. When she gave me that picture I gave a performance that would have put an Oscar winner to shame but when I got home that picture was put far far away and Operation Flush began that very day!
Lesson Of The Day : Don't mess with a man and the memory of his four legged best friend!

So whom am I tagging?
1. Mimitu
2. Archer
3. Nick
4. 3 types of crazy
5. Gishungwa
6. KIPUSA

Yeah I have been gone so long I can only think of 6 names and not 8.

Is it me or is power some sort of elixir for long life? I was reading one of the papers online and I was shocked to see Baba Moi still up and down in the public lime light. There are people who were born and have had kids when this man was in power. I guess I need to start drinking mursik and eating whatever it is that he eats to stay on form.

I am sure most of you have read this story, I see it is also featuring in the local dailies in Kenya. Let's look at the right thing for all the wrong reasons, first things first our compatriots from Central Province were not behind it. Second, people always say Kenyans are slow and that is why our West African brodas always get ahead; I guess we are catching up. But on the other hand most of the accused worked in nursing homes, so I guess most people back home know that Kenyans in the States aren't living the good life but doing back breaking menial jobs to make ends meet! East or West, home is best!

Time to get back to the grindstone! Ciao people!

Number 8 intrigues me. Reminds me of a scene in The Shield..a girl...the side of a wooden shack...see the picture? :-)

Aco: I'm with you on Numero 3: The dramas is unbelievable even with Vijanas.I slowly went back to the Kenyan scene sometime this spring oh thinking that perhaps I'm just dissing wakenya for nothing but the drama I have encountered has left a scar sijui whether I will have the courage again maybe only while in Kenya. I had no idea there is so much dramas in this part of the world . But with other vijanas from wherever it is so easy, no siasa nyingi.

On Numero 1: Woii I have a love and hate realtionship with Mzungu here in the US and that line is so thin leaning towards the hate.

Aco... just wait till you deal with Kenyan customers...

Erm, you do realise that customer service in the USA is FAR better than what you will get in Kenya?

Sigh... those crooks will tarnish prospects for many, many Kenyans in the USA esp in Missouri.

Well, now we know where some of the remittances sent to Kenya came from!

thia is just plain malice- atii I am tagged AGAIN!!! Sii I out the "T" in tagged. Been there done that, worn the t-shirt running aropund in it. Ama you wat another 8? There is naada.

AT NUMBER ONE- although I can see where you are coming from with that one. I think that people can be difficult but this is even made more difficult (is that english) by a difference in values,ethics.And it really doesn't help that wazungu can be "not the brightest" of people.But I have maximum respect for anyone who works in customer service. I hold you with deep regard. It takes some strenth, discipline, patience to NOT tell people to go jump- I could not for the life of me do that job. I deal with people and sometimes when I am not up to playing nice I will not hesitate to let you know.

Atii Customer is always right- then I am left.
