"I like work. It fascinates me. I could sit down and watch it all day". Can't recall who quoted this originally but I sat and watched in the tv show host's (Funmi Iyanda, right of picture) study as she discussed work issues with her Personal Assistant, Funmi Akinsola.- Wednesday the 6th of December, 06.

Hey Laspapi,

Your post suggests that you have in awe of the woman. Miss Iyanda is a phenomenal woman though, totally understandable.

I wonder how it is being Funmi's PA,From what I see on screen she seems like a bloody perfectionist! Love her tho'.

mona, I'll search for other Arts events taking place in the Xmas period.

@anonymous 1: I have no idea how you arrived at the 'in awe' conclusion. Your post reminds me of the diverse workings of the human mind. Funmilola is a close friend of many years, no matter how phenomenal.

@anonymous 2: You appear to be a student of human nature. I know Funmi and her staff would laugh because you consider her a 'bloody perfectionist', but I know they'd be laughing because you're absolutely correct.
Glad you think well of her though, she works hard for that programme.

I refer to the two women in my comment. As you did in your post and response. No?

Anon 1- I think I should concede that ever since I saw the V-Monologues on stage in Nigeria, I've realised how little men know of the female personality. (you may google my review of that play as published in the Guardian newspapers)
