My Calabar Carnival Experience

I was invited to Calabar by members of the Carnival Calabar organising committee as a Judge for the main Carnival which took place on Sunday Dec 27th 2009 in Calabar, Cross River State. There were 37 judges in all, drawn from various states of the country and from different professions. There was an ex University Vice Chancellor, professors, lecturers, lawyers, journalists, art enthusiasts etc. And I was amongst them...I feel too honoured.

It was my first time in the State and I had the most amazing time.

At the stadium with Kevin (BB 4 winner) and other carnival judges and friends

MI and a few other Nigerian artistes performed at the Stadium on Saturday Dec 26th but I was only able to catch MI's show which was incredible. He performed with Ice Prince and Kevin, BB4 winner.

I took some pictures with my camera...very amateurish but enjoy...:-)  

Governors of Cross River State and Rivers State arriving the carnival. We shared thesame boot so I was able to take close up pix of them.

My night out...

I went out yesterday evening with a few friends and I had a blast. Took some pictures. Check it out...

If you look closely at this picture, you will see a dark spot on my right leg. Remember when I told you guys I fell in a gutter and bruised my leg? Well that's the scar there. I've tried to bleach it out to no avail. So whenever I wear anything short I use foundation to hide the spot ...but sometimes I forget...like yesterday...:-). If you know how I can get rid of this dark spot...please share.

Finally changed my hairstyle after wearing the long curly hair for over three months...lol. This is the second time (I think) this year I'm wearing my hair short. Give me the long weaves any day..:-)

The way I was posing you'd think I was in a mall in LA or something..lol

At the car park...ready to leave.

By the way, you guys like my dress? Someone said something about it looking childish...
Dress your age Linda!!!
Whatever!!! lol
I wanted to look casual, trendy and chic. Did I get it right?

My sex-maniac husband

I got an email from a reader of this blog. She wants your advice for an usual problem. She's married to a man whom she says loves to have sex...A LOT! She says to put emphasis on A LOT!

I never hear this kind wahala before o... lol. (Not funny I apologise :-))

Anyway, she said when she used to live in Nigeria with her husband, she'd leave home to go visit her mother for days mostly to escape his sexual demands (which she says is driving her to insanity) then they relocated to the UK and now she has nowhere to run to.

She writes "He wants it every time, morning, afternoon and night. Just whenever we are alone. The nights are the worst for me. He could go on and on all night long. He can't seem to control his urges and he's never satisfied. What do I do? The situation is making me so unhappy"

I'm not married so I really can't give any advice. If you have any words for our dear wife, please share. She really would appreciate it.

Tiger Woods is athlete of the decade

Even after a shocking sex scandal that tarnished Tiger Woods image, it was tough to ignore what he achieved on the golf course. He won 64 times around the world, including 12 majors, and hoisted a trophy on every continent golf is played. Woods was selected Wednesday as the Athlete of the Decade.

Top 6 athletes of the decade in their particular order...

1. Tiger Woods (Gulf)
2. Lance Armstrong (Cycling)
3. Roger Federer (Tennis)
4. Michael Phelps (Swimming)
5. Tom Brady (NFL)
6. Usain Bolt (Sprinter)

Good for Tiger.

Kidnapper's price list...lol

Just for laughs...lol.

RIP Caroline Johnson

I just got the news today from her husband, Tony Johnson, that Caroline Johnson, the lady with leukaemia you all heard about, has passed on. She died yesterday evening in a Lagos hospital.

After all the suffering, she still died. Why? I'm stunned beyond words.

She fought so hard to stay alive. But God knows best.

May her soul rest in peace. Amen.

My new sports car

Part one!
I have a car. A nice one. I never planned on buying another one. What do I need two cars for eh? :-). But then a few weeks back a friend of mine said to me 'the way you drive Linda, you need a sports car!'. (I like to drive fast...safe...but fast!). I remember saying 'if only I could afford one'.

Then last week he told me about a sports car for sale. He said you need to see it. I said what's the point, I probably can't afford it. He said this car is cute and not very expensive, just check it out.

So I went to see it. Drove it. Loved it. Realised I could afford it. And bought it. :-)!

Part two!
I took it home. My father liked it. My brother fell madly in love with it.
My sisters were like, you bought another car because???
One of them said 'What you need is a man Linda...not a car!"
Whatever bitch...lol!
My mum hasn't said anything yet. She just gives me this 'look'.
She'll get over it...:-)

Check out my tokunbo cute sports car...lol

And that ass hair of mine. 22 inches of 100% Brazilian human hair. I bought this hair in September (quite expensive) and I remember telling them at the salon that I will wear my money out of the hair. So it's been same hair, different styles, for the last three months - three more months to go. Yeah I roll like that... lol.

Blowing you guys a kiss...mwah, mwah mwah!!!

And that's me (below) last night. I attended a friend's bar opening at Victoria Island. A new place called Rehab on Ajose Adeogun Str. But this pic was taken at the Silverbird Galleria...

For some reason I always include black in my ensemble...I love black...bite me...:-)
Linda is cute huh?
Cheers people!
