Sweet valley high

GREY'S ANATOMY UPDATE-I cant believe they've dropped Washington,i am going to miss his character.He was good with Christina, and their relationship was one of my favourite things about the show.Guess his apologies were in vain.

Racism-this form/excuse is too crazy,a nigerian guy in belgium was refused a job apparently because of a "racist" dog.Na wah o,using dog as an excuse now,that's a new one.

Oh my,i can't believe i came across this book again.These books got me into trouble in school so many times,started with Sweet valley kids,Sweet valley twins then Sweet valley high and of course Sweet Valley University.We were not satisfied with reading them at home but during classes, pretending we were reading the class text with the novel placed inside.Trust some girls, because of the craze they usually make sure they have the latest ones just to be the center of attention.I wonder how we passed our exams then,we were not passing textbooks round the class but sweet valley series.I even watched the the tv adaptation,my favourite character was Elizabeth,the level-headed twin and i was always rooting for her and Todd.
I wont forget the day the biology teacher caught me,she actually tore the book right in front of me, i was almost in tears-the book wasn't even mine.Did we learn?nope, we continued but picked partners in crimes to be on the look-out if a teacher is staring for too long.Memories........Before Mills and Boons,there was Sweet Valley!

Sister Sledge - Frankie


Rant-See how my dry throat wanted to disgrace me on the train this morning,anybody that has been on the train b4 9 in the morning,know how the thing is as packed as a tin of sardine.Have you ever had this dryness in your throat that you need to cough properly to clear it?That's how this stupid thing started,i was still playing chic clearing my throat quietly,for where,this thing hooked me so much that my eyes were watering.I just covered my mouth and coughed well,you shld have seen the people by my side shifting slyly,who send them ,do they want me to choke here.haba.

Random thot-Did Edie really commit suicide on desperate housewives or are they playing games with us, i would have thot she was stronger than that.

BB Update-Emily and Shabnam are up for eviction, i think Shabnam will be the one to go but who knows with the british public.News flash-Emily has left the building,she was removed from the house because she said: "Are you pushing it out, you nigger?" to Charley.What is it with confinement bringing out racist tendencies in people.Same thing with Jade on celebrity big brother.Although Charley didn't really think there was much to it,she felt she didn't mean it to be offensive.So on that basis there will be no eviction this week.

Footie-England played Estonia and it ended 3-0,goals by Cole,Crouch and Owen.David played really well despite struggling after twisting an ankle,pity he is going to the US to play "Soccer",but with the money involved who can resist.
-Nigeria still lead the way in their Group despite their surprise{not really when it comes to super(?!) eagles} 2-1 loss in Uganda in the 2008 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

As for that BB show , i'v made up my mind to stay clear of meaningless t.v shows. As in seriously are there rily 3 jobless old women on it? cos am not sure if my eyes were playing tricks on me. I saw them on yesterday and i changed the channel asap. Wharahell!!!!!

Nice post.

Pele about ya throat o. I bet it was a very embarrassing moment for you.

Emily seriously messed up. That was so uncalled for. Shabnam was favored to walk. And i like dat Emily previously...wtf!!! Anyways, good riddance to bad rubbish

As per naija, i stopped watching their matches long time ago. I have better things to do with my time.

classybabe said...
