The Elevens Tag

I was tagged!! A 'lil bit excited sha because it is my first. I've been putting it off for a while, because I don't have enough people to tag. But I noticed other bloggers who were tagged, tagged less than eleven people, because most bloggers have done this tag anyways.

So first off, I'll say thank you to Daughter of Her King and The Relentless Builder for tagging me on this.

Now to the rules;

1.  Post rules
2.  Post 11 random things about yourself
3.  Answer questions posted by the person who tagged you

1) I looove being alone. I love my company and I talk to myself a lot (don't worry, I'm not crazy)

2) I am the only girl among two boys

3) I suspect I definitely have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). As I grow older the less severe it is, but when I was younger I always had to touch EVERYTHING!! I came across 4 times. My dad caught me one day and I was so embarrassed. I still have other weird compulsions

Question from TRB

1) Would you describe yourself as fashion-conscious?
   Absolutely not! But I love dressing well and picking very classy pieces. As long as I don't look dowdy. I don't even know all those Designer names

2)Name one song you can never forget and why
  A King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall (KWAM) 1 song that has some lyrics that go "fatty bombom o, fatty bombom o.......shokologobangoshe", something like that. I just liked it when I was small o. I don't even know where I heard it because that kind of song would never have played in my house and when I was about 5, I was singing it out loud in my family's compound in the village during Christmas. When my dad heard me singing the song, he went ballistic and said I must never sing it in my life AGAIN!!. I was embarrassed because he shouted at me in the midst of a lot of people. I was a very sensitive child.

3)What physical feature would you like to change?
  Perfectly happy with how I look. In fact I think I am one of the most beautiful people ever created..notbeingproud... I thank God for the way I look. I won't mind wider hips

4) Three words that other people use to describe you
   Weird, quiet, unfriendly

5)Three words that you use to describe yourself
   Intelligent, deep, funny

6)Pen (Biro) or pencil? Which do you prefer, and why?
   Pen. Pencil marks are too dull and don't leave vivid memories

7)Do you have a favorite fragrance (perfume, body spray, etc).  If yes, what is it called?
   No. Just obtain anything I see on my mum's dressing table

8)What are your pet peeves (Name three at most)
   dirt, noise, body odour

9)Do you like children? Why or why not?
   I like them when all they do is sleep (it can be really nice watching them), coo and smile. But when they get noisy and bratty they can be a pain. I can't wait to have one of my own

10)What's the name of the last book you read?
   The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives

11)What's the name of your favorite author?
   Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie a.k.a Agadi Nwanyi (igbo phrase that means 'old woman'- i just like the way it sounds. That's what her sister calls her because of her 'deep wisdom'..hmm)

    - LDP

  5. @ Seyefunmie. i‘m glad i was the first person o. You are very welcome. Your blog‘s beautiful. Thanks for following :)

  6. @ LDP. don‘t mind me joor...i don‘t need them. it‘s just that my petite figure gets to me sometimes. but i like myself like that o.
    “extremely quiet“ among most people, but like the few friends i have, when you get to know me, you know better. as for the unfriendly thing, i just don‘t make friends that easily, buh i don‘t fink i‘m unfriendly like most people presume.

  7. Awwww...... You know I have not even checked my blog, just came here to check for updates and I did enjoy ur post. Thanks for the tag :) would def get to it soon!

  8. Hi!... and I thought you didn‘t want it o since you did not come since all these joking.
    I‘m glad you enjoyed it and you are welcome. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Will be expecting your answers on your blog!

  9. Nice to meet you. You sound like someone I know :)

  10. It‘s my Really? I wonder who that is.

  11. I finally got to read this, and I feel like I got to know you better (You're welcome, by the way)

    Minister of Health? Dreams can come true. When it happens, I'll remember this post.

    I'm not fashion conscious either. I wear what looks good on me.

    Oh my goodness, that "Shokologobangoshe" song, I used to sing it too, when I was younger. Along with some other songs I am not too proud to admit I sang.

    Your pencil v. biro response is remarkable actually. I so wasn't expecting that, as per linking biro/pen marks to vivid memories. Of course, water can destroy both, but that's another story.

    Perfume on your mum's dressing table ... LOL! So down to earth.

    And finally, the comment on children. I heartily concur. I can't stand rude, disobedient children. My cane won't be far away at all.

    I enjoyed reading this!

  12. glad you enjoyed reading it.

    Yeah when I become the Minister of Health, we will remember this!

    Yeah, you actually don't seem fashion conscious..
    I thought only few people knew that song..that song ehn..

    Thank you, thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. Very much appreciated.


Feel free to leave a comment. You can't tell how much that encourages me :)
