Discoveries 101

I am on a roll!!!!!!

About 3hours after I started my day yesterday, I received an email notifying me of a scholarship I got against next year for ………..


I am giddy with excitement. This is particularly because I have a huge list of projected expenses for the next academic year. Who says God doesn’t work miracles?! I am a living example.

I was with my friend who loves to piss me off sometimes by the way. So in his usual manner, just to piss me off, he googled Nigeria and here is one of what we found:
 Isn't this just a joke as well as annoying? I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing. Plus isn't something like this supposed to be politically and socially incorrect? *SMH*

Also, I was reading my campus published daily. I saw some information on it that got my mouth to open and stay open on its own accord. So I researched it and perhaps I am just a little slow on matters like this but here's what I found:
 This a screen-shot from the Red Cross website and it was in the newspaper verbatim.

I mean, I can give my eyes and kidney and fingers and the overgrown nail on my big toe when I die, but my blood can’t be useful while I am still alive. Perhaps they should spend more money on research to find a machine to detect this type of HIV instead of spending money on stupid studies of the correlations between a person’s name and destiny. mcheewww. 

None of the above stories is an April Fool joke.

I repeat None of the above stories is an April Fool joke.


Much as I would have loved to punk YY today, he has pled, groveled, pled again and bribed against my doing so. But because I can as well as I am an evil witch, I will anyway…:D

Happy New Month My People, May Your Dreams Come True.

    Re: Nigeria's bad press...I dont really see this ending anytime soon because our so called representatives i.e. Nigerian embassies, ambassadors etc never ever respond to such slights.

    If a newspaper or reputable website insults an Arab, European etc country you will have the ambassadors demanding an apology *hisssss*

    @ Nigeria's description, Omoregee took the words right out of my mouth.

  10. Evil witch, please, don't be evil today. Congrats on your scholarship

    That Nigerian joke is not even funny. Very dry and insulting.

    First time I got to know about that blood thing was when my husband tried to donate blood in the U.S. and they refused to take his blood. I was shocked!

  15. Happy new month to you dear, and congrats on the scholarship! That's great news indeed.

    As for giving blood, I've heard of that before too. Na so...

  16. YAY for the scholarship! What a great way to start the month!! Congratulations!!

    That Nigerian factory thingy isn't funny @ all...but it makes the writer sound stupid, so all's fair.

    The blood donation status is same here in the UK...my hubby was told he couldn't donate cos of malaria parasites or something like that...

  19. Thanks so much people. I was so excited about the scholarship but was even more excited to come here, blog about it and read your comments. Thanks a bunch.
