10 Things You Can Learn From A Nigerian - From the Atlanta Post

It goes without saying: Nigerians are plentiful. In fact, one in five Africans is Nigerian and they certainly represent throughout the Diaspora.  Much of the time, however, the over 150 million Nigerians in the world are unfairly associated with 419 email scams.  More often than not, Nigerians are contributing to the international business and cultural landscape in a major and legitimate way.  One stereotype that is true is that Nigerians are some of the hardest working people on the planet and they have the accolades to show for it.

From Us Magazine

The 29-year-old singer is pregnant with her first child, the new Us Weekly reports.
Despite the happy news, no one was more surprised than the singer herself.

"B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn't ready to be a mother just yet," says a source of the singer, who married rapper Jay-Z in 2008. "She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again."

Still, another insider says that the singer, who is in her first trimester, realizes that "this is a gift from God and she's so happy."
Friends of the couple are already expressing their well-wishes for the parents-to-be.

These two actually make love?
Great news. Congrats to them!

Brandy says she hasn't had sex in almost six years

In a recent interview,

Brandy admitted she hadn't been intimate with a man for six years.

"I haven't been with a man seriously and in love in six years. And, honestly, I tend to abstain if I'm not in a relationship," Brandy says.

Although it hasn't actually been a full six years, the singer says, "It's been a long time. We're talking years."

Brandy has tried getting back in the dating game, though. "I actually went on a blind date a couple months ago that was very interesting but nothing serious."

There was a time when Brandy had a thing for rapper Flo Rida. "I was very interested in him. I mean, how can you not be -- he's very attractive. But there was just something about us that didn't click."
I feel a little better. I thought I was the only weird woman in the world...:-)

End of the Earth Postponed - The Mayan Prophecy

Having already foreseen world war 1 and the 2006 Asian Tsunami, a few people took seriously the Mayan Prophecy that the world will end in 2012.

Well it's a good news/bad news situation for believers in the 2012 Mayan apocalypse. The good news is that the Mayan "Long Count" calendar may not end on Dec. 21, 2012 (and, by extension, the world may not end along with it). The bad news for prophecy believers? If the calendar doesn't end in December 2012, no one knows when it actually will - or if it has already.

Paranormal Activity 2 out this weekend

Oh dear Lord, help me. The first one gave me nightmares. After watching it, I couldn't sleep alone anymore for a long while. And now another one? *cry*.
I'm crying because I know I'll def watch this second one...another series of nightmares begin!

Anyway, It's opening this Friday. And like before, the film's studio, Paramount Pictures, is releasing very little information about what's in this new movie. But a few little Easter eggs have surfaced that hint at the amped-up creepiness in this second installment.The original teaser trailer showed very little from the new movie other than the appearance of a shadowy figure in the doorway of a baby's nursery. But if you pause it and look closely, you'll spot a buried secret: the crib is empty, but you can see a reflection of the baby in the mirror.

Oh no, why another one? The first one was by far the scariest horror movie I've ever watched!
What did you think of the first movie?
