It’s Day 1 after the ‘shoenapping’ saga and I have had a relatively stress-free day. Subscribers to the Zain telecommunication network in Nigeria would have had a rude awakening yesterday as the fifth in a series of transitions took place. Zain has metamorphosisized from Econet to VMobile to Celtel to Zain and now…wait for it…Bharti Airtel! Virtually all Zain subscribers had no reception/signal for close to 3hrs this morning and then the welcome messages from Airtel started swarming into cellphones across the country, including mine.
For 3hrs nobody could reach me. I couldn’t make any outgoing calls either. I actually felt…disconnected, vulnerable, lonely, neglected, bitter…no wait, bitter? thats a relapse from my runaway shoes. Honestly I’m fine…I’m obviously just living among a den of thieves. Back to what I was saying – I felt left out. To make matters worse I forgot my Facebook password. I must have tried up to 20 times but I eventually had to reset my password, which was much harder than extracting water from stone. No FB updates, no BB messages, no network for calls, no one knows whether I’m alive! Sure feels good now being plugged back into the ‘Matrix’. I’m back baby!!!
In other news, The Crazy Nigerian has moved up from 9th to 3rd position in Google’s Page ranking (Yaaaay!!!).But like Ludacris I’m gonna ‘scheme scheme plot plot…I’m coming for that number 1 spot!’ 😀
I love having you around Jollof, but you seriously need to cut the charger cord. Get out a piece of paper and a pen, write a letter and get back to basics.
But, don’t stay away too long, I’d start to miss you all over again. ;P
Although, I have a confession to make. I woke up yesterday morning, kids had left for school, husband gone to work, and I headed for my laptop. WHICH WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.
I had a fit, storming around the house, looking for it, cursing the self-absorbed, disobedient child who would DARE think to take my laptop to school, and then I stopped and screamed in my own head “WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO ALL DAY WITHOUT MY LAPTOP???”
And then I realized that it was sitting right there on the stool.
Thank God you found your laptop! Your blog would’ve started to develop cobwebs like mine did. Believe it or not, this reply is being sent from my WordPress for Blackberry application. My laptop is getting a lil’ jealous. The idea of letter-writing is appealing but mind you my handwriting has gotten worse over the years. I doubt you can read what I can only describe as ‘Chicken Scratch Marks’!
