I have been very lazy...but I had quite an eventful week... I had the flu and had to stay home for 2 days, which was probably given to me by my friend who is sleeping in my living room now.... I began my Dutch classes, and yeah things have just been moving slow and steady..
When I was playing around on the internet, I found a very interesting post. Apparently the Nigerian Police force arrested a goat on charges of armed robbery. Ok I know some of you wont believe me, and as such I will post the link. I laughed my head off so much....ok heres the gist...the goat was brought to the cops by members of a vigilante group..apparently they chased two armed robbers who wanted to escape in a mazda. The first dude escaped, the second put his back to the wall, and morphed into a goat a la harry potter style...lol..anyways, enough of that...Here's the link..

On the vigilante issue, there's a scary video which some of my facebook friends keep posting...which sickens me..the video shows the lynching of a suspected armed robber on the streets of Lagos, and for those new to it, the lynching involves putting a rubber tyre round the persons neck, dousing the person with petrol, and setting it all ablaze...I saw this shit once when coming back from university back in naija and it still gives me the creeps thinking about it...someone actually stood through it and videoed it all, and guys are posting it all over facebook...what kind of image are we trying to sell of our nation? Yeah I know our police system is messed up...i.e check out the goat issue, but cmon no one is entitled to judge anyone like that....and those guys burning people would go back to their respective churches and mosques and then wonder why their lives aren't moving...its so sad really. No one deserves to die like that...no matter their crime...let God judge em, after all, the bible does say "Vengeance is mine..I will repay"...anyways God dey.
I managed to find the website which pissed off badderchic...wonder why we in naija love to copy the wrong things....its a naija version of "Gossip girl" and they specialize in publicizing whos sleeping with whom, how many times, where, how, etc, of some so called "Big boys" and "Big girls"...I wonder how or what qualifies them to be called that (big boys and girls)..but seriously, how people want to live their lives is their biz..lets focus on more positive things.
Guys, I am off to bed...cheers!
Oh yeah I found a redeemed church in my area...so thats taken care of the spiritual side!....lol...and the pastor and wife seem to like me...at least we get to speak yoruba to each other..lol...
