My Connection to fame

drum roll jokes. I feel like I should be in a magazine with the title "Who wore it better?"

Nah I think Gabrielle Union and I look equally as nice! Thanks Sis for pointing it out to me!

Eating Healthier on a Lighter Note

Hi all!

This is going to be a quick one! My week has been so so not too busy yet not too free! But tonight I get to go on a mysterious date with my Mr. and he refuses to let me know what it is we are going to see/view.

Talking about him! He loves this awesome stew called "Designer Stew" "Aya Mase" or just plain old "Mama Put Stew" I make it every now and then, but my sister and cousin make a more banging version of it! plus they enjoy doing it most times :( lol! I cook for all of you who think I don't. I do! and when I do it's always delicious! The Aya Mase stew is delcious especially when made hot, unfortunately I am cutting down on it this year because it is made with a killer oil! Palm Oil. And Loads of it for that matter!

So he is craving it and sends me a message at work! (we communicate a lot through our work e-mails during the week :) ) Read the short request, my response and then his response!


me too and you know what I smell with it! bad health habits with the palm oil in it! You shld eat that only 2wice a year and you have surely exceeded that 2wice!!! What ever happened to you eating good honey!


Mr. is in Blue

I found it funny and thought I would share BTW

Healthy Habits

It's the weekend and I am cleaning my house!!! Atlanta finally blesses us with nice warm weather today compared to the other frightfully cold days!

And as I took a break from cleaning to check my mail this morning I stumbled on this issue on health...(On yahoo) called Protect Your Heart At Every Age. They break it down according to the different decades of a woman's life span; starting from 20 till 50. And it got me thinking that I should properly start being extra conscious! It freaked me out just a little too because some of the signs at the different ages were very much like some of the signs I have seen in the women of my family. In this fast, technology based world we live in, it is so easy not to see these symptoms and also to be a victim of Heart Disease!

An example from the first decade (20) presented is

In Your 20s

Stub Out a Social Smoking Habit Smoking is enemy number one when it comes to heart disease, and even just a few cigarettes can do damage: New research from McGill University in Montreal found that smoking just one cigarette a day stiffens your arteries by a whopping 25 percent. Plus, smoking erases the hormonal advantage you have from estrogen, which can leave you vulnerable to a heart attack before menopause, explains Dr. Bonow.

Now, you know how you feel good with yourself right of the bat when you know you do not fall in a category! whew! I was delighted! yes! At least I do not smoke...but so many of these young children do??? and I wonder what do they find tasty in that stick? And to make it worse they endanger us folks who do not want to smoke by puffing right in our faces! People, I am not against people who smoke but the habit! Do you but please don't endanger our lives!

The lists of ways to prevent and symptoms of certain activities goes on and is very insightful indeed! Please take the time to read and take note, you may probably prolong your life in the process!

So from today, I am going to try my best to avoid things and activities that would make me more prone to such diseases. In other words I will maintain healthy Habits!

Cheating the Norm now?

Why do men cheat? Hell Why do women cheat? I believe it is important to realize that both sexes are capable of cheating! But the question remains why? And I am aware that this is one of those topics that may have been exhausted but still I wonder.

The pleasure? (because boy is it temporary) I just don't understand and this is not coming from a woman that has been cheated on. I see it very predominant in the Nigerian culture now (well all over the world really but I am only capable of analyzing the nigerian culture because that's where I am from) Call me Biased...Whatever.

It's disappointing to see a mid-aged man and his wife with a family that seems so perfect, only to find out that the man spends all the money on an outside fellow while he neglects his family. The neglect that makes me even more upset is that that results to him spending lesser time on engaging in valuable activities with his family like traveling with, education of, exploring with, adventure with and developing his family.

Arghhhh I could go on and on! but I'll stop here for now! I'll let you all give your opinions on this much talked about topic!


Ahhh! I want to go and show of my wrist watch in Nigeria! All my friends are wearing it now, I'll look at it and then take of my eye! Now I have bought my own so I can place my hand like this! (making a hand movement that shows of his watch)

Inside the movement! You see inside the movement!

My dad is hilarious! lately I do not know! He gets so excited when he gets one of his new items! So the latest one is his wrist watch, my bad (what! God-forbid I forget to mention the make) it's the Girard Perregaux Watch! His latest item. He is so excited about it!

Zebra Escapes!

In my comfy sitting room at the moment and I have not moved from my spot on the couch for the past 2 hours! I kid you not! Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice have got me hooked on thursdays 9pm-11pm. The funny thing is my neck aches from the position I have it in and my head hurts from being in front of the screen for so long. But! No I refuse to move or even change the position just a little, lest I lose the little bit of comfort or ease I have on this sofa!

Any hoos! TGIF!

Weird Breaking news! Only in Atlanta does a Zebra escape (Hence the Title) from where you might ask? (me I do not know o!) only to be on the loose on the highway! I am shocked. Later these Oyinbos will be asking us if I have seen a lion, talkless of a Zebra! At least we do not have them roaming our "expressways" lol

What Luck!

In an attempt to start blogging again, I find that my old blog is no longer available! Talk about having a motivation! Now I am forced to start from scratch...Oh Well They say New Year! New Beginnings! (Come to think about it, do they?) Well maybe it's new beginnings indeed!

I'll begin by reintroducing myself again! My name is well topsylavy (I can't reveal who am I kidding, I am sure everyone and anyone that knows me may recall my blog name) for now I'll continue as topsylavy! I really have no structure for this blog yet so let's see how the third time at maintaining a blog goes! Well that's that! And I know y'all are thinking come on? is that an introduction...well...I am bad at introductions and I feel you will get to know me as I continue to ramble on this blog! fingers crossed!

So! Yeah! to this blog in 2010! Cheers! I should be back with another post tonight on 100 things that describe me ( I nicked that off another blog I have enjoyed reading in the past 2 days! Just dicovered it...dn't ask how. I can not get enough of this blog! Low's Mental Floss where have you been all my life! and to think this blog stopped being updated in 2007! I still love it though! )

Till then!
