Entry #70 – Reconnect me!

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!’ 😀
