Random Thoughts Circulating My Brain

Have you ever eaten half cooked jollof rice out of a mug? It’s amazing I tell you! When I cook jollof rice, I have a habit of eating it while it’s still cooking. Once it’s fully cooked, I lose interest in it. The other day I was standing by my hob eating half cooked rice from the pot when I looked up and spotted a mug I almost never use. Without thinking, I reached for it and filled it with rice. Jollof rice has never tasted better. If you don’t believe me, try it.

Spitting. If you’re going to spit, make sure it’s in a sink and I cannot see you. I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE SPIT ON THE STREETS. It is the single most disgusting thing ever. I cannot stand it. It is rude, vile and revolting. This morning as I was walking to my local train station a guy walking towards me spat on the side walk, the same stretch of side walk I was about to walk on. I had to cross the street. Disgusting I tell you, DISGUSTING!

Khloe and Lamar. I’m not a fan of reality TV but I love watching Khloe and Lamar on E! They make me want to fall in love. They are so cute together and what they have seems genuine. It’s a little bizarre marrying someone three months into a relationship but hey, why hang about if you know what you want?! Fingers crossed they’ll stay married as long as they’re both alive but it’s Hollywood, you can’t put your faith in anything that land produces.

Carrie Grant. Carrie Grant of David and Carrie Grant of Fame Academy of The One Show of Vocal Coaches to British Pop Stars. I heard and watched Carrie preach a sermon at my second church (don’t ask) on Sunday and I fell in love with her. I can’t remember the last time I heard a sermon that was so inspiring, real and unreligious. She talked about grace and loving unconditionally and it was awesome. The next time you see her on TV, know that she’s not just a pretty face. Sadly, the sermon isn’t on the church’s website but watch out, I’ll be posting a blog on it on Waila Waits.  

My sofa cover. The thing has been begging to be washed for the last year. Once upon a time it was red but now it’s red, brown and black with splashes of white here and there. I keep saying I’ll strip the cover and take it to the dry cleaners but I haven’t gotten round to it. It’s gotten so bad that I now put a throw over it when I have people coming over. The thing is an embarrassment. Maybe I should just go to Ikea and buy a new cover. That way I’ll save myself the hassle of washing the something and perhaps I can get a different colour to give the flat a makeover of sorts. I wonder how long it will take me to drag my lazy self to Ikea. I’ll keep you posted.

My birthday is less than a month away! I’m not sure why I’m excited seeing as I never celebrate the day. I’m too lazy to plan anything and my friends have given up on trying to excite me. I’m one of the least excitable people on this planet. I really must change. Anyway, I’d like presents this year. There are MANY things I want so please look out for my birthday wish list. Be generous.  The good lord will reward your generosity!
