The 14 for 14 Challenge: The T.Notes' Blog Sniffer alerts - Nazzy's soundless voice


This is where i admit that finding new bloggers particularly herein on blogger can be likened to "finding a fart in a sandstorm".

I have typically low attention span, an annoying penchant for fine syntax, a stupid fetish for words and phrases that slide fluidly into each other, like a certain silk-laced pink chemise hanging loose after a few naughty glasses, and stolen chardonnay kisses with intermitent drunken laughter on a random London night...

Nazzy's soundless voice is a relatively new page i've been reading lately. I found her blog via the comment sections on freaksho's blog. In my opinion, anybody who comments on freaksho has an idea of the minimum requirements of a good blog, like an uncommon novel that captivates your attention, perched infront of a roaring fireplace, with a certain pair of long pale legs across your midsection, the kind of eternal moments of which holidays are made of, and of which our Nigerian parents are quick to forbid....

What are your thoughts on interracial relationships? Yay or nay?

The stark reality of good blogging is that, it takes an awful lot of effort to creatively weave your thoughts into a good post. Infact the best posts are often borne out of quiet late night hours which get harder to sacrifice - as we all know. And it's a co-dependent cycle of writers and readers, i.e bloggers often write for like-minded bloggers. Heaven forbid one solitary good blogger stuck in a lone nightmare of tabloid pages and unfeeling religious diaries...#shivers.

What are your thoughts on this new wave of 'every blog is a celebrity newsfeed'?

I like to think that my 14 for 14 Challenge is a noble contribution to the longetivity of this blogsvilla. Plus, it takes some pretty good effort to find these blogs! So after all my blabbing is said and done, you need to click here, visit Nazzy's page, drop a friendly hello, and maybe even do the unthinkable - i.e, follow the blog?!!!

After all is done and done, you need the next blogger as much as the next blogger needs you. actual defination of a new blog are blogs under a year old, but once in a while, for inclusion sake, i might just drop a lazy T.Note for the slightly older blogs. And since i am well familiar with all the faces behind those blogs, i think i might just do a comical diss and review session for those ones - after a few tipsy glasses to locate my funny bones!

Okie doks, that's my February 14 for 14 Challenge all sorted, now back to the bee'z-nizz!


Intro: The 14-for-14 challange by Janyl. (Click here to familiarize yourelf with the '14 for 14 challenge')

I recently accepted this challenge to go on a quest searching for brand new blogs...with the bull-headed conviction that all creativty is not lost within the nigeria-blogsphere. And also desperate to prove that, contrary to recently popular opinion, not all of the new blog pages are uninteresting (to put it mildly). This is my second post as regards that journey.

My life on a chess board

I love the Financial markets in NY.
Especially the analysts who sit behind the scenes, making the magic happen.
I like to imagine that we are like some covert high intelligence squad,
recruited to anticipate a million market activity scenerios and work out how our clients should react in real time.

If obama sneezes,  we know how that seemingly insignificant action  will affect Microsoft prices,
And we react immediately, like bham!

But here's the problem point, according to my doctor:

You need to be able to disengage financial markets from real life!
You play your life like an unnecessarily complicated chess board!
You expect that everybody is involved in a high stake gamble which you compulsorily feel the need to win.

So you read in between every idle word,
Analyze every meaningless intention,
You give people's intelligence far more credibility than is required!
When infact,  people are just...very simple people.
Often without formular, or trendlines,
They are just...people being people.

But nothing is random with you.
So your brain is on overdrive 120% of the time.

Once in a while,  you need go into your mind and shut down your overactive imagination.
Just shut it down like an overworked industrial machine
and let there be utter silence in your mind.
Otherwise, i promise you,  you're going to end up as a fruit cake one day.

I never really liked the guy.
His checkered purple shoe laces never match his belt.
And the way he tinkers with his belt buckle suggest some level of sexual frustration
which isn't healthy for his age anyways.
Dude might bucker up under a ditsy twenty year old and cheap viagra someday.

Telling me I overanalyze everything!
You should grow up in Nig. and don't over analyze - see how long you'll survive!

If his life was a stock option, I wouldn't bet half of my dog's lunch on his prospects.
And I think HR is wasting company money on all these stupid monday
lunch times sessions.

Briefly moving on....where my Ghanain folks at! Deenta, N&Lee, Kojo - I see you doing that church clap biz in there!...This has been my office 'boss-mode' theme song this week. And gosh, i love being black!

Ever feel like you worry too much and then worry about how you worry too much about worrying in the first place?
Strengths that are annoying weaknesses all at the same time.....
