I get amused when people tag me. Seeing as I’m the Queen of TMI [I am working hard to relinquish my Queendom of technobofia], I can’t think what anyone would want to know that I haven’t already told them. 🙂

So. For Mo. 10 true things about myself. I’m at a point where I’m bored of being ‘deep’, so I shall try to keep it light.

1. I like mirrors. No, scratch that. I love mirrors. And the room I’m staying in has lots of them. Hence, right now, I feel fat and ugly.

2. I’m 5 feet 5-and-a-half inches tall. That’s taller than all the men I’ve ever worked with. My company has a thing for short men. Go figure. And most men in Dar look up to me, in more ways than one. 😉

3. I was at the kiosk outside the hotel jana buying oranges, and I saw a weighing scale where I could check my weight for a sock. [That’s like 5 bob Kenyan]. So I did. 69 kg. I’m so upset that I totally missed the cue to giggle. I feel fat and ugly.

4. I’m at a workshop with lots of good food. I’m trying to ration myself, but they have this banana cake and custard and chocolate bitings and croissants and french toast and…well, i feel fat and ugly.

5. I went to the office yesterday to get some files out of my computer. My workmates were all snapping at me coz i’m in a fancy hotel and they’re not. I’ve been away 2 days. They all commented on my weight. Hence I feel fat and ugly.

6. There’s this Indian manager at the hotel who is always smiling and looking at me like that. I like being looked at like that. But I really wish he was someone else. Plus, I am having my worst bad-hair week in yonks, and I feel fat and ugly. Hence, I cannot understand why said Indian keeps looking at me like that. Puzzled is me.

7. I’m trying to get over this one guy. It’s hard. He’s everything I ever wanted, and it’s hard to recover from that. I’m scared I won’t meet anyone who’ll measure up. It’s so easy to like this guy. I’m afraid to let him go, but I have no choice. Help!

8. Last night my fellow workshoppers ordered chinese rice, thai egg fu yong, buttered chicken rolls and kachumbari [and they were furious when they got salad instead .] Me, I ordered a beef burger. What.

9. I need to join a gym. I feel fat and ugly.

10. I like mild heavy metal. Yes, I am aware that there is no such thing. Doesn’t mean I can’t like it.

I tag KK, because he is one of my favourite people, one of the most gifted writers I know, and because for some strange reason, he enjoys being tagged. There you go Love. **tap tap** You’re it.

  1. I tagged you but you already did yours! I should have been here before that. Good read though


  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  3. Hey there terrific website! Does running a blog like this take a great deal
    of work? I’ve absolutely no knowledge of coding however I
    was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if
    you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off subject but I simply wanted to ask.
    Many thanks!

  4. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually
    something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try
    to get the hang of it!

  5. Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all people you actually know what you are talking approximately!

    hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out
    where u got this from. many thanks

  7. What i do not realize is in fact how you’re not actually a lot more neatly-preferred than you may be
    right now. You are very intelligent. You already know thus considerably on the subject of this matter, produced
    me individually believe it from a lot of numerous angles.
    Its like women and men aren’t involved until it is one thing to do with Girl
    gaga! Your personal stuffs nice. All the time handle
    it up!

  8. You could definitely see your skills within the work you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe.
