:::: INTERMISSION ::::

Hey Inkers, 

This is the first time I'll make  a non Ink post.. but hey. Maybe it might be the last.
I just wanted to update y'all on whats happening and  yea... bond with all 35 of you and the many Anonym(i)? lol.

Sooo... I know some of you already want to chop my head because of my lack of timely updates. Well things have been a bit up and down for me. But is it not God? I'm gonna be alllllrraaiighhh!!!!

That being said...Oya! Let us sit down and talk.

Ok...how about we decide a REASONABLE schedule for deliverance. Let us ease Neefemi and Ene them of thier anxiety attacks hahaha (I love u guyss!! Thanks soo much). Please refer to the poll on the side and if you have extra comments just drop em off here... Im also thinking in the event a websiode is not delivered timely. we can just have a "Teaser" session.....I would do an example of a teaser session so you can see what I mean. Basically it wont be REALLY part of the story... but it would still be connected. Its a mini webisode.

Other than that hope you guys are all doing great in blogville so far. Thank you all for the support over the last season and for most of this one. I really appreciate it.


Ok vote o.. let us know how we can get this ball rolling. Arinze them are waiting. *wink wink*


PS: I just finished reading half a yellow Sun guys! MMMEEENNNN see book! It was sooo entertaining. Like I wanna go to Nsukka now and stroke Richards hair. LMAO! (For those who have read it) But yeas... My next stop is 'Say you're one of them' Anyone read this book yet? Personal review.. but please no.. exposing of details.. Help a sister enjoy the book ko.

Alrighty.. Thanks soooo much again. I love you guys you give me reason to live and enjoy this alternate world I created with these characters.... its a comfortable get away... :) especially when drama is lacking in this one hahah...
Ok OK OK.. Im going.. Byee!

Sugarking, you missed! Better check upon them sharp sharp! You Spilt Ink people no try sha... I was gonna go for weekly so you won't burn out but the people have spoken. Twice a week it is!

I'm disappointed there wasn't an option for "weekly with regular length webisodes", but I get it, you have a real life, it's cool.

"Say you're one of them" is not as exciting or fulfilling of a read as "Half of a Yellow Sun", mostly because they are short stories (some longer than others, which I found annoying) and the stories never really resolve. Some of them are really heartbreaking so make sure you're mentally prepared. Nevertheless, it's a good read and good exposure to other African cultures.

If you DO like short stories, you should pick up Adichie's other book "The Thing Around Your Neck" - 12 short stories. Excellent read.

I voted for weekly and short. I prefer that than waiting two weeks. Sometimes the long ones make me want to skip. Well done!
Myne Whitman said…
BTW, I just remembered I did not list this in the sidebar at Naija Stories, will go and do that now.

I also voted bi-weekly. I think I can wait 2 weeks for regular length webisodes. You should read "Purple Hibiscus", it is a really great book. I have also read "The Thing Around Your Neck" and it is really good. Please when is the next real episode coming. I am going through withdrawal here.

S2. W19 - We need to Talk

I had booked marked 1 page so far. And that was because I felt I was being too picky. It was called Adonai. I almost didn't find it as it wasn't on the first few pages of the google search term, but somehow for some odd reason I had clicked through 5 ages of google results and somehow Adonai had jumped at me. I loved their slogan. "When there's no where else to go" It was simple but strong. Their website was very simple but I could tell it was professionally done. It wasn't a random person with no experience whatsoever in web design that decided to piece together a site, this was well thought out. Their choice of words, their images...Very marketable.
So far with everything I had read, I was impressed. Felt almost as though there were talking to me specifically. So I had bookmarked it. I was going to marinate on this a bit longer. I needed to anyways. 
My bladder started complaining again. These two creatures wont kill me o! Every time they wan wee wee.  I put m…

S2. W18 - Sticky.

So we stood outside the door. Photo in hand... and shock on our faces. I was numb. No.. no... not numb...I was feeling very besides myself. Yale put her arm around me.. "We are blocking the entrance...lets go the car.." Seems she had come through... well then again it would be easy for her to snap back. She doesn't have two human beings growing inside of her. She led me to the car.
"So....." Suni sat there like a statue her hands limp on her laps. "Suni?" I smacked her hand. "SUNI!"
"Yea...?" her response was so slow. She turned to me... "What?"
"Well....?" My eyes asked the rest of the million questions I had in my head. What was she going to do? How was this going to work out? One is overwhelming but two? like two babies..? Ah.
"Yale... you're asking the wrong person"
"Should we call your mom?"
She looked at me like I had just suggested I run her over with the car. "For what?"

S2. W17 - Alternative Options

I swear I feel my tummy grew overnight. I'm barely over 3 months and I feel like I'm 6 months far along. I struggled to fit into my mini-maternity pants. They were so cute. They were meant to be for mothers between 1 - 3 months. But no not me. I already started missing my pre-preggo frame. My  ultrasound appointment was at 9:30 and it was 9:12. I had ONLY just finished putting on these freaking pants. I looked like a pregnant goat. I was  SOO showing. Like.. forget XXL sweaters or hobo shirts... my FACE alone was a dead giveaway.  Porky.
*Sigh* No time to sulk. I grabbed my keys and dipped. Yale was linking up with me there and we all know how she gets when shes made to wait. We were going to see baby today! She was excited, I was cranky. Tired maybe. But yes... no going late.

"Arinze!"
"What have I done now?"
"You owe me TIME... we haven't seen since plus I need someone to talk to."
*Sigh*....…
