By their Questions You shall know Them

My people,
How are you are? I am good!! Had a looong restful weekend thank you very much. Even went to the Notting Hill Carnival in London. Pictures coming up.
Cherrychatter, Toinlicious, Lady Ngo and MsTizzle, Biko Dalu for tagging me in the Elevenses. 
I'm sorry it took me so long to get round to answering your questions. Better late than never right??

Cherrychatter, Talk Radio Host – Love and Other Drugs
What is the one thing that frightens you the most? Dying without achieving all the things on my bucket list.
What song would you describe as your ‘theme song’ ie a song that best describes you or how you feel about yourself or certain issues? Video by Indie Arie. Listen to it here

Kim Kardashian,  the entire Jersey shore cast ( if they were formed into one body with a medusa head of all the cast members) and Nene Leakes; if you had one bullet, who would you shoot? pls include the Geordie Shore cast...smh. Could i line up the heads and shoot them all ala Angelina Jolie in Wanted? 
What was the last most outrageous purchase you made? This pair of sandals. Cost only 5Euros but my feet feel like a million dollars in them.
Is it best to have loved and lost or is it best to not love at all giving the possibility of heart break? Give reasons. Best to have loved even if you lose it. "It is the unalienable right of every human to experience love once in their lifetime" Ginger :)
Tattoos or piercings. Which do you prefer and why? Tattoos. They are artsy at least compared to making holes in my body
Who do you love the most, your brother or your boyfriend? (If married, replace with husband) See me see trouble! Which kin question be this? Filial and eros? Not comparable.  Can’t choose, sorry.
Is revenge ever justified? Give reasons. Yes, it eases the hurt and makes forgiving easier J. Also some people only learn by being taught a lesson. 
Is religion an important consideration in a relationship? Give reasons. Yes. It is important that a couple can pray as a unit for themselves and their family. I see my parents and I want that.
If you were president for a day, what is the first thing you would do? I’ll pull a Jerry Rawlings! Can I just call a meeting of all PDP politicians and lock them in and tell Nigerians to tell me what to do to them. Then pick a suggestion through random number generation. 
What is your first memory of being aware of/attracted to someone of the opposite sex? Hahaha. At my eldest sister’s wedding. My 7yr old self was quite appreciative of the page boys J. I thought they were the cutest boys I’d ever seen in their suits and all.


Toinlicious – Madame Ghandi – Vice President, Philosophers for a Better Earth
What’s the one question you would ask God if you could: Was gender inequality part of your grand plan for man?
What’s your most embarrassing moment: The Sunday my heel broke as I was catwalking to the altar to receive communion. I refused to turn back to my seat (devil is a liar) but I had to limp back in all my finery.
If you could change one thing in the world now what will it be: Ban Porn
If you could say one thing to the current pope what would it be: "His Holiness, I think you should have a rethink about contraception". Like seriously. Billings method in 2012?
What’s the one thing you wish you could ‘un-invent’ right now and why: Cigarettes. Its demerits are bigger than whatever warm feeling smokers claim it gives.
What’s the most terrifying moment of your life: The Waiting as our next door neighbors were robbed by over 10 armed men for over 3hrs. The gun shots, the shouting, we thought we’ll be next.. I remember my sister poured her red varnish on 2 sanitary towels and said we would pretend we were having our period to deter them from rape. Scary times!!
If you were to be recognized by posterity for one thing what would you like to be known for: Giving voice to the voiceless. 
What color best describes you? I am iridescent!
If you could commit one crime and wouldn't be caught, what crime would you commit: Plant a listening device in Obama’s bedroom. Yes I want to be a voyeur of PO-FLO-TUS conversations.  
If you had to name one lesson of love that took you longest to learn, what would it be and why: That the heart loves where it chooses and it may not always be right so you gotta let your head help you!!!
If you could be guaranteed one thing besides money, what would you want: A perfect family

    1. The visual of a Madame Ghandi is someone like her husband right? dont worry, this is a reinvention. You are the new face of Ghandi!

      My dear scary doesnt half describe it. I didnt even think of pee. We were just praying. Our neighbours upstairs who were peeping into the compound had two shots fired into their window cause the thieves saw them.
      The joker was that they only got N200 from the house. (No i didnt forget a zero. Two hundred naira!!)
