Drowning In Peppermint Oil

I woke up early determined to go and get a mobile phone sim card (I hate feeling out of touch) I would have got one the day before but it was Sunday and practically everything was shut. While I was getting ready I heard a knock on my door. Wearing my headscarf I flung the door open to find a man standing there. His name was Jay. He was American, originally from Trinidad and had just arrived. He introduced himself as staying in the room opposite. After the formalities he left and then I went and asked the lady downstairs how I could identify a cab as I hadn’t seen any that I could pick out as cabs day before.

Goat Roti and Shark n Bake On My First Day In Tobago

After watching the BET music awards on the TV until late late night. I woke up about 5 am and finished reading Kola Boof’s autobiography. I swear I would not have been able to rest until I finished it (it was that gripping) so it was a good job that I did so as soon as I got there. I love Kola Boof…She may come across radical but her observations are SPOT ON! I love the way that she doesn’t mince her words and is so raw with it.

Arriving In Tobago To Find My Luggage Missing

Delayed for 3 hours and finally lift off. The plane soared and I willed my body to a state of unfeeling (MY state of unfeeling as I rarely dream, which would be some kind of feeling) called sleep. And will it I did to forget the bone penetrating cold air that was working its way to my core. A cheap ticket… no blanket, certainly worth the trade off but I cursed myself for allowing myself to suffer in this way by not bringing my own blanket.

Are Abusive Parents The Cause Of Childhood Obesity?

Overfeeding children is being likened to starving children. To an extent that is true as both have negative consequences but the difference is that parents who overfeed their children have different intentions to those that starve their children’s. Food is used as a treat, lack of food a punishment. Many parents think that they are showing their love by overfeeding their children. Although I was never fat as a kid and it wasn’t unhealthy stuff she would do it with my mother was definitely a “feeder.”

Caught Red-Handed With An Out Of Date Travelcard

I got to the station this morning and since I have been late to work 50 percent of the time in the past month, I made the conscious decision not to queue for a ticket as it would have resulted in me missing the train and making me late again. I got on the train with my out of date ticket, hoping I could just flash my old one to get through, or even better flash nothing if there were no inspectors and then just buy a new valid one in the station.

Cookie Monster On Crack

On my way to a friend’s house from work I bucked up on a weirdo at the train station. The platform was bustling with people and Deebo starts making a scene. Yes this dude looked something like Deebo. For those that don’t know the black guy in the picture below is Deebo. He was a character in the film Friday

I Hate Shopping

I tried to go shopping today. I say tried because my attempt was highly unsuccessful. I tell you I hate shopping. I got hot, took off my scarf, then got cold, so put it back on and then started sweating like a pig. All in the name of trying to pick up a few clothes this is what I had to go through. The lights in these stores are so bright and hot. They give me migraines and make me want to throw up.

When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong – The Sensimilla Saga

I took the spliff and took two pulls on it. Almost immediately I felt drowsy and I hate feeling drowsy, unless I’m ready to sleep. Something about watching Chrystal smoke and get high made me just want some. I was bored. It had been so long. I must have forgotten that I don’t even like the high that weed gives. Not long after my two pulls Chrystal’s phone rang. Keep in mind that this was about about 10/11pm. It was one of the guys we had met about a week earlier at a bar. At the time that we had met them there were two of them and two of us so we hung out with them for a couple hours and then exchanged numbers.

Caught Weeding Our Stay On Good Luck Road Comes To An End

She didn’t wait for an answer to one question before asking the next. When I said that I was staying there she flipped out and then hung up. Tamara had been listening to the whole exchanged and we were stunned into silence. We figured out that it was his fiancée because the pastor had called regarding, “their meeting.” She wasn’t just a girlfriend they were actually engaged to be married and that was the first we had heard of her.

Stop Eating My Plantain You Greedy Bitches

The girls we met in the sports shop that day in Landover mall were called Josephine and Courtney. While we didn’t see Courtney again, Josephine became a permanent fixture for the rest of our time there. The day after meeting Jospehine, Henry went to work without dropping us off at the mall on his way. The routine was broken… The bastard had left us in his house in the sticks to fend for ourselves, and we sure did fend..
