Pupils Boycott Weevil-Infested Meal

I found this piece on Joyfm’s website. The article brought back fond memories of my rather forgettable stay in boarding school. I remember with a slight grimace the number of times I had to pick or spit out a weevil after eating ”yoo kE gari kE red red” ( beans with fried ripe plantains for those not in the know).

Is this is pure coincidence or do Catholic schools add weevils to their meals as a source of protein for the otherwise malnourished Ghanaian student. Just saying 🙂

Video of the Day – ” Tecktonic Dance”

I got introduced to this dance by a little French friend of mine ( no not my gun:-) scarface reference…anyway) Pretty smooth dancing style perfect for our white cousins

‘Britain’s Got Talent ‘ UPDATE

I was pleasantly surprised by the show and a bit numbed by the concept however; winning a competition to get an audience with the Queen just didnt go down well with my anti-class alter ego . May be I would have a different view of things hadI grown up in Britain. But thats  in another life 🙂
As expected, the turnout was huge ( not American Idolesque mind you, smaller country:)but the hardwork of sifting and sieving through the human rubish present  must have been monumental.  So after the elimination round where those who couldnt manage to cross that faint line that separates  weirdness  and weird talent, fell by the way side or on this ocassion were ‘X’ed off stage in front of millions . Feel your pain guys especially when you told your ex you were going to be famous after you win the show.
In the end I was pissed because the people I was rooting for lost (Susan and Flawless) .But truth be told I kind of had a sneaky feeling that Flawless werent going to win especially when they were up against a rival dance group with the more pleasing and less cocky name Diversity. Coincidence that the public went for a more embrassing name or they were just better dancers? Better dancers i dont know about that , but with the cute kids and flawless performance Diversity deserved to win. For once Flawless werent so flawless.They just didnt put on a performance worthy of a grand final . [ main problem : shoddy and over-elaborate choreography]

Ooh Susie Susie Susie. I feel for the old gal. Coming from her little corner somewhere in Britain to snatch the hearts of thousands in the process building massive good will and a solid momentum to win the  competition only to fail at the final hurdle. No wonder she ended up seeking medical help of a psychiatric nature ( apparently she’s out as I type these here words) She could have done with more rouge on the cheeks; showbiz is lets face it, about looks and charm so  in the end the more dazzling competitor won.

Football: Man Utd Knocked Out Of FA CUP

Ooh what a fucking disaster. Personally I didnt get to watch the match live because of work but managed to get commentary from BBC, on the patched-up radio I had nearby.

The first 120mins went by like a flash, except for the fact THAT WE WERE ROBBED OF A CLEAR PENALTY IN DAYLIGHT. So without any goals takin the game went into penalties. But then I hoped against all hope that Ben Foster, our dimunitive England team aspiring goalie, would come to our rescue. But instead it was the American goal keeper ,Tim Howard who i still think we sold at the wrong time; ends up saving two penalties so even though Tim Cahil blazed his effort over the crossbar Everton came away winners with a 4-2 scoreline.

Why oh why did Fergie field so young a squad… yes we have a lot of important matches coming up but he could have fielded the fringe players instead and not the youngsters. Surely a great manager like Fergie wasnt expecting Macheda to repeat his wonder goal scoring spree…. huff. What I didnt expect from him however was to join Arsene Wenger in blaming the pitch for not winning.

So bad judgement and cruel referreeing has stolen our chance of winning the cup because we all know that we could beat Chelsea should we have met them in the finals.

Video of the day: Anais – ”Mon Coeur”

I just love, love, loooove this girl. Enjoy this clip.

A.L Kennedy

For the past couple of weeks i have been reading with great interest and enthusiasm, the blog entries on and of the Scottish writer A.L Kennedy on the Guardian website.

For some reason I can’t explain, I find that her prose writing style and just her writing in general, tends to appeal to me a great deal. May be its the gloom that just wraps around you when you read about her suffering from back pains, a secluded life and her unabashed admission of having sex once every five years. I must confess that I am not the avid reader I should be since I have very lofty ambitions of becoming a writer ( which she advices against, naturally. No writer would wish for anyone other than themselves to go through the pain writing involves; fiction writing at least) since reading and writing, for me at least go hand in hand. According to her, taking the bold and foolish decision to become a full time writer ,ie earning a living through words should only come as a last resort of sorts. It is too much of a sacrifice learning the craft and after years of trial and error, solitude and mental torture finally be confident enough to type your first sentence.

Anyway,I am yet to read any of her short stories or novels for that matter but I have a feeling that I will greatly enjoy my reading when I finally do. She isnt main stream like John Grisham and Danielle Steele so it’s hard getting her books locally.

But in the mean time you can watch her talk about her latest book, ‘ DAY’, in the video below.
