Cake topper galore

I love weddings, not really because of the mushy love feelings or even the fact two sensible people are throwing away their lives, but because of the hilarity that comes with it. And now this will make me even want to go to weddings more;

Weird facts you don’t want to know but I’ll tell you anyway.

The chains of marriage…

Marriage is the death bed where happiness goes to die. I know for most people this is not true. I have seen happy marriages but again I have seen HORRIBLE HORRIBLE marriages. And since am a pessimist I will focus on the bad rather than the good. I have seen a man try to run over his wife with a car simply because she decided to leave him and his abusive ways. I have seen women who stay even though their husbands are abusive, contribute in no way to the household but still expects to eat and have a roof over their heads. I’ve seen people stuck in marriages where they are cheated on and treated like dirt but still don’t take the initiative to leave. So really is companionship that important that I forget am a human being with rights and not a punching bag for an idiot?

Bride price or Ownership…

If at one point in your life you were ever in a business class, you would know the meaning of price but in layman terms, it is simply the amount given as payment for something on sale. And if you buy something doesn’t it mean you own it in one way or another? So really, by making a man, or woman in some parts of the world, pay dowry aren’t you giving him ownership and all the rights that go with it?

In Africa, dowry is like an ultimate law that can’t be broken. It is so intense that in some communities, failure to pay it and if by sheer bad luck your wife dies, they will not let you bury her but say you don’t have that right. It has become a way of cheating your spouse out of his money. I know of a lady who went to her Dad to say that the hubby’s family was so rich that he should request a 100  camels but tell them to sell the camels and bring the money cause he doesn’t have a farm to keep them. Do you know how much 100 camels are worth? I don’t know either 😛 but lets just say the Dad made millions from them.

I think its an outdated practice that really should have stopped with our ancestors! This is what breeds wife beaters, cause of thoughts like I own you and thus I could do whatever I want. And this is not even a theory anymore, I talked to an educated man with a really good job and in a position of influence and he told me that, “Beating my wife is not wrong, am just disciplining her!” And people have the nerve to ask me why I don’t think marriage is in the cards for me.

So really, by us continuing this custom of a bride price, aren’t we saying women are commodities just like a can of coke, to be used and disposed of when we are empty?

It’s over!!!!!

After 4 years at the University, I can finally see the end to all the studying, exams, assignments and lectures. 4 years of my life for a piece of paper that ascertains that I am qualified for an office job that will be bore me out of mind. 4 years of classes, running after lecturers, overnight studying and “tear my hair out” exam stress. IT IS FINALLY OVER! Just have to keep it up for 4 more weeks and hope the lectures give me good grades to not mess up my GPA. Am graduating, Am graduating, Am graduating! (that is me singing and dancing in excitement 😀 ). I tried on that graduation gown, and doesn’t it remind you of Harry Porter. I felt like a wizard almost took it home with me. AND my year book photo.. OMG my face looks so fat!! Anyway AM DONE!! and that is all that matters.

Purple Monday…

Painting Monday blues, purple. Couldn’t be red, Its Monday!

I see dead people…

So I watched Jurassic World last weekend and extreme stupid people exist! After just 5 mins into the movie, in my head all i was hearing was the kid from The sixth sense saying,”I see dead people.”

dead-people

When they introduced the creepy white dinosaur, I heard the Red Queen from resident evil saying,” You are all going to die down here”.

Red_Queen

Basically the whole movie was a re-run of old movies in my head and comments like “stupid people”. Seriously you survive Jurassic park then you decide to make another park. STUPID PEOPLE!! And is it just me or are kids creepy!

Jurassic world…

Ok for me when you say dinosaurs, I squeal in my little girl excited voice. So when they said they making another Jurassic park of course I had to watch it. Yes, I was late in watching since I watched it this weekend but still it was kinda awesome. However, I have some complains.

  1. Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, in the whole movie was in heels and didn’t even twist an ankle, at least get a black eye from falling or even lose a shoe. Unrealistic much!
  2. Who in their right mind will make a carnivorous animal that can camouflage? That thing will give me nightmares forever!
  3. And most serious OFFENSE, a whole movie with Chris Pratt in the jungle and he didn’t take his shirt off!! Poor disappointed ladies everywhere.

It had it’s strong points as well:

  1. Chris Pratt. No description necessary.
  2. A lot of people getting eaten.

Basically, it had the makings of an awesome movie and it did not disappoint!

Flu season??

PigFluCartoonWhile people are enjoying summer I think its winter here in Kenya. I live near the equator you would think it would be warm year round but you would be wrong. I am freezing and have a flu that could lead me to being quarantined, if my brother knew how to get a hold of CDC. I am not fit for human interactions. So until I say bye bye Flu, this is my form of communication. Woohoo loner!!!
