Army chasing greens chasing sushi

I start each day by watching world briefing on the BBC. They have the most interesting features. BBC is also my prime source of unbiased news about the post-election violence in my country. I don't talk about that much on blogit, because I come here to get away from the pain and the hurt. Political... Sign in to see full entry.

Are blondes really dumb?

Or for that matter, are the Irish? Are the French born chefs? Are Germans genetically stingy? Do the British lack emotions? Do all Japanese like sushi? Do all Chinese eat 'noondles and lice?' The interesting thing about stereotypes is how true they are. But why are they so accurate? I refuse to... Sign in to see full entry.

Who says flowers are romantic?

Symbolism is a very interesting thing. And TV makes it worse. I heard someone make an interesting point once. Christians wear crosses as a sign of their faith because Jesus died on a cross. So if He had been shot, or executed by lethal injection or the electric chair, would we be wearing those... Sign in to see full entry.

Why do we drum our fingers in traffic jams?

Why do we break things when we’re angry? Why do we hug pillows when we’re down? Why do we wear red on valentine's day? Why do we drink chicken soup for colds? I’m still ranting about the influence of media. Yesterday I was moody, so I hugged a book and went for a long walk. But then I asked myself,... Sign in to see full entry.

There's a difference between Mr Right and Mr Perfect

The latter doesn’t exist. We all grow up with the image of the perefect lover. Tall dark, handsome. Great cook, curves to kill. Loving, caring, muscled like Schwartzenegger. Knight in shining armour, fairy princess. Reality check. there is no perfect human being except Jesus Christ. And he didn’t... Sign in to see full entry.

The seven year itch

The point in your marriage where you feel enough is enough. You suddenly have ‘irreconcilable differences’ There’s one at four years too. In Hollywood it comes at 11 months mostly, or at 24 four hours in Vegas, when the booze wears off. Oyunga Pala once said “How can you claim to love one person for... Sign in to see full entry.

Should you fight for the person you love?

I’m not talking about standing up to people who don’t like your lover. I’m talking about fighting a rival. All the movie cliches go on about that. If someone is after your man, you should make sure you keep him and all that. But is that for real? Can you make somebody love you? You can do the things... Sign in to see full entry.

Does true love exist?

My friend Ray says love and truth can't be mutually exclusive, because to keep love alive, lies have to be told. I look at many relationships, many marriages, and realise that many times, it's a sham. Few people marry for love. And marriages based on love don't last. 'Happy' mariages are mostly just...

Of Mars and Venus

If yes means no, and no means yes, then the best way to get rid of an annoying stalker is to accept them, yes? And if the cookie-jar theory holds true, then the best way to get someone’s attention is to ignore them, no? Male-female interaction is tricky. Hence the cliche “Men are from Mars, women...

Men are hunters and women are...gatherers?

I heard that quote on Isidingo, and it got me thinking. At the end of the day, despite feminism, liberalism, and all the other -isms, the average man still prefers to catch his own meat. Never mind that once they catch it, they take a bite, get bored, and look for new prey. As one man said on Nini’s... Sign in to see full entry.
