I am hosting me and some!

I have an e-book book online under the name Vera Ozomma-Jonn. The title is ‘In blood and soul’.  It is a collection of five short stories. In blood and soul is one of the stories in the collection. It is an African tale of two sisters. The other stories in it are Perfect stranger, April fool, I and Myself and White Land.

Click here to read a preview of the book.

A friend of mine who is an upcoming hip hop artiste shot this video a few weeks ago. 

The single off PhatBone Ijaya's debut album Klaustrophobia, 'Monjawonlaya' is produced by Dhecade and is currently enjoying air play on Hitv, Tv Continental, Galaxy and Soundcity. 

Check these out guys and tell me what you think.

Love you all.

Things a girl should do if she aint already doing them.

Dance: Okay, you might not have the time nor the energy and you might not even know how to dance. Who said you should dance where people would see you? Just do it when you have the time and energy. It is great exercise and if you can’t really dance, you would be the one laughing at yourself. I do that.

Get a foot massage: You can pay for it or get someone close to massage your feet. It takes all the stress away.

Learn a new thing every month: Anything that makes you feel good. From cuisine to martial arts.

Frown less: We all hate wrinkles and baby, frowning brings them.

Surprise people once in a while: For example, If you wear make up all the time, show up somewhere without the usual ‘look’. Maybe light and barely there makeup.

Do something exciting once in a while.

Support a worthy cause.

Have yourselves a wonderful weekend ahead.

Weird times in a girl’s life.

When she falls into a gutter on a busy road with more than 50 people starring

I went to a salon to have my hair retouched. The salon was not too far from my home. When I was done, I walked to the bus stop and when I wanted to cross a big, stinking gutter to go and take a bike, fiam! My leg just decided to have a life of its own and failed me. I think my slippers contributed to the whole thing.

My hands were on the ground, the money in my hand was everywhere and my BlackBerry bounced severally before it came to a halt. And my more than half my feet was in this disgusting pool of Lagos nonsense. I think I was in shock for about 30 secs.

The thing with this kind of awkward situation is that there is nothing you can do to make it better. So when it happened, I just picked myself up. A guy was on my case telling me to wash my legs with satchet [pure] water. I did but he wouldn’t shut up.

‘Wash it well well aunty. This one na virus o!’ ‘Buy more water now’
Oh God! Why me?

I washed and washed my leg, got tired after buying about six satchets of water and walked to a bike stand. People stared at me but I walked confidently like nothing happened. I have seen a gorgeously dressed lady fall on her butt. Wrong shoes I think. She did the unthinkable. She began to cry! A grown ass woman began to cry in public because she fell down. She wasn’t wounded or anything. Just grossly embarrassed.

Anyway, I took a bike home. I was already tugging at the jeans when my sister opened the door for me and I told her the story in the most dramatic way. I put the kettle on and later spent close to an hour in the bathroom scrubbing the hell out of myself with hot water and three kinds of antiseptic soap.

The weirdest things happen even to the most fabulous people (y’all join me as I fan myself). Just don’t lose yourself or forget who you are.

Did I add that this happened to me yesterday?

Stay cool folks. No matter what!
