lol @ baba suwe making u laugh...the guy is hilarious, I don't blame u!

Wole Soyinka fan!

Read "the Hardy boys" too...(but it just couldn't be compared to the Nancy Drew files)...

laspapi said...

jc,
I see Baba Suwe on 'Africa Magic' and I can't change channels. It's the way he uses words.

Yeah! Soyinka for ever.

I read some Nancy Drew too but it's girl stuff, don't you think?
A bit like Agatha Christie's characters, Hercules Poirot and Miss Marples.

Omohemi Benson said...

This tag thing wey u con tag me so?
Ok,I will do it.

We share a mutual hatred for the Nigerian police.

Thanks for stopping by.

laspapi said...

Thanks nilla.
When I hear 'Hunter', I change the lyrics to suit a guy singing ..."If you were a queen up there on your throne, would you be wise enough to let me go?"
I think it matches my life.

@ anon- yeah, V, you made me give it up.

@ omohemi- Nigerians are of one mind in their opinion of the police.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

I love martin lawrence and saturday night live... mad tv does it for me almost everytime.. miss swan is just a character!!! I haven't had to deal with the Nigerian police so i have nothing to say.. or the Canadian police come to think of it.. i guess i should count myself lucky.lol.. i don't like algebra.. all that geometry crap... but calculus rocks!!! I adore Dido.. one of my favorite lines in a song ever "I never want to be so afraid to fail that I don't even try" are from her song Life for Rent... she's magic! I love to learn french(which i really should know seeing as Canada's bilingual and all that)... love orange juice... but cranberry juice even betta!fantastic writeup... i loved it!
