List of 5

Boy Oh Boy don't we hate them tags. I've tried avoiding them by being in an infinite state of 'pax' but that trick aint working! Now, I've gotten tagged by none other than Stunuh Jay. She is a dear friend of mine...whom I've known since way back when she was just Jay.So I will indulge in, hopefully, my last tag-there should be some law out there about tags!!!!!!! Howver i've done the tag with my own ka-twist!

5worst Movies:
>Drop Dead Gorgeous
>Joshua Tree
>Burn Hollywood Burn

5progs i'd watch all over again
>Beverly Hills90210
>Knots Landing and Dallas
>Fresh Prince Of Bell Air
>Lois and Clark:The new adventures of Superman

5tears from Movie Scenes:
>The Champ:when his papa got killed in the boxing game...torrents I'm tellin u...wailing harder than Travolta in that Oprah Ladder49 special
>A scene from a Naional Geographic when some poachers were chasing a herd of elephants and shot one mama-elephant. The herd kept on running and lil baby elephant looked behind and so her mama had fallen. She went back and started nudging her with her small trunk to get up. Woiye and the poor thing went behind her mama and stated to push her up with so much urgency...she tried pushing from different angles...but mama was never gonna wake up again. So she tried and tried and decided to just sit next to her....(who are we kidding try 5more tears!!!!)
>After the Promise. As Mark Hammon was trying to make do...his kids were all taken by the social service and ended up mentally retarded...
>Em hallmark movies e.g For the Love of Aaron. They should come with Viewer Discretion Advisement..'...the following movie could make a sissy out of you-be warned!!!!'
>arent those enough examples for a guy!

5killer couch potato food combinations:
-Hot sausages and Milk
-Cold Nyam Chom. I'm talking about meat that has atleast spend a night in the fridge and eating it cold like that. The fat is usually even sweeter. Bones easier to strip...Couple that with Pick N Peel Apple Juice or Del Monte Mango Juice and you have it made!!!!! Boy oh Boy!!!
-Take a bowl and mix Chevra/crisps/popcorn/njugu's/all kinda snack u can ...then add a couch and remote control...Am not a chocolate kinda person: but big screen theatre has never been right without macademia nuts..or toblerone! kit kat...
-Chilli and everything that goes with. Try it with popcorn, crisps and hotdogs!
-all out buffet! You've been spending entire morning watchin movies and realise're getting hungry so you collect pieces of breakfast and lunch and left over dinner...

4songs for the moment:
>Let me hold you: Bow Wow(formerly lil) and Omarion
>Please:Toni Braxton. Listen to them violins and watch the video
>Don't Cha:Pussy Cats something group...its has a funky beat. "dont u wish your girlfriend was a freak like me...don't cha..."
>Drama, Love and Lationships:Babyface

5things i'd be caught dead in:
>them pointy mocassin like shoes which are also called D.C's or D.O'S shoes
>muscle tops ( i forget the correct term) and speedos
>sports uniform playing an actual sport

5amusing school moments:
>remember crashing a packet of chips into smaller pieces so that there was more to share?
>remember fierce material rivalry and ridicule?
-LOL @u if u had a youth pen!
-LOL @u if ur mama believed knitted sweaters were better than store bought!
-LOL @u if ur juice bottle didn't cool juice till the afternoon or eraser erase pen marks or u had diamond pencils and coloring pencils or didn't have a bensia pencil...
-LOL @u if ur shorts were patched up in the ass and you're bata prefects had been re-soled!
-LOL @u if ur sporting bata bullets instead of high tops on closing day!

>remember building Fort Knox with 5Atlases while doing an exam so that no one could copy from you?
>remember snapping your fingers screaming "teacher me, teacher me, teacher me..." what was the big deal anyway? You'd still get it wrong and remain standing the whole lesson long!
>remember there used to be a survey for some kind of public health and we'd be asked to bring in a stool sample! There was this girl who brought a stool sample that was GREEN in COLOR!!!! Woe unto you fair- traumatised-parasite infested-clueless girl!!!!!

5amusing things in University:
>In first year out of like 40 assignments and practicals i dubbed 38! Nothing to be proud off but hey...survival was survival!
>Dubbing had been perfected to a tee! One would collect other's assignments...photocopy them...return originals to owners and then compile a master piece. Which at the end, the lecturer would even think others copied from you and not the other way around!
>There was this chick called Moraa. We didn't even know who she was but we had all photocopied her notes. She attended all classes, had a very beautiful if she got one equation wrong or spelling wrong we all went down with her!
>Skiving was survival. You'd skive classes to go have fun! You'd skive classes to read for tests and exams. You'd skive to catch up on skived classes...heck once we skived to go play scrabble...
>that we actually passed!

4unfinished blogger business:
-collabo with Milo and Kymmbr
-Return of Lequita and Akiey relationship drama
-Beginning of BigBlogger
-Unfinished war with the BluePoet and a certain Wedding coming up to Mshairi. Now my question is isnce Blue is obsessed with blue and Mshairi obsessed with purple...Will their kid be Indigo?

This is funny nephew however, you are such a cry baby:) Having said that, something got into my eyes while watching the Champ...

Why are people bashing the colour indigo? It is a cool colour, not as cool as purple but cool nevertheless:)

P.s.Here I was thinking the war was over now that Blue may perhaps become your uncle. You have to make a deal with me - it is either the two of you continue with your, I dare say, silly, never ending war OR there will be NO wedding. I am not making threats however, here's to hoping you and Blue are listening and of course, the choice is yours:)

Super fine post Nick!
Unfinished blogger business: Am waiting to see what once-up-on-a-time akiey's Lequita has in store,lol!
Hey, Nick & Stunuh Jay have put miles on their friendship. Care to elaborate here before I even dare reveal about my fellow clone Irena? :)

"After the Promise", great Tv movie & yes, sad what they did to Hammond's kids. Dunia ina mambo. Didn't KBC show that movie like 7326 times on various Moi Days? Can't complain though.

5 Progs: for me throw in 'Martin' & you've made yourself a friend for life. I hope Irena, is done wiping her tears of laughter from watching too much Martin,lol!
-Chevra/crisps/popcorn/njugus mix. U make me miss sharing that with my siblings over home movies mazee!
-Please:Toni Braxton, nimekubali bila kupinga.Superb song & instrumentals!
Anything Bow Wow, liked the kid since he was little growing up. Very talented & being an artiste from my home state, will support him all the way:) Heard the one with Ciara?
-With you on pointed shoes. Everybody knows I will start a world war if made to wear those jiggers!

speaking about skiving when i was in uni there was a lecturer who would take roll call while looking at the list the whole time so what would happen is that 10 jamaas would skive and leave their jamaa.What this one dude would do was to change places and pitch of voice during the roll call 10 times!Ama during those 2 hour lectures where there was a half way break it was common for the class to be half full after the break.Oh for the good old days!

Skiving in campus is one thing that happens too much. There was this chick
who happened to have never attended the clas and on the CAT day she asked the real lecturer who the lecturer was.
