I must say kfc isn't that nice in America, at least compared to the UK.

Given you are in Chicago you should try out Chic-fil-a. It's really nice and a lot better than kfc.

Food

I'm rearing to go to the popular eateries like kfc, McDonald, Burger King, etc etc
(Yup, I love food like that) grin grin

Respect is reciprocal..... If our fatherland no give we the citizens respect then how are we going to respect her? Just saying though
B4bestbrain:
Nice post ni.
You are really a funny person.
What i enjoyed most is thé simplicity and real nature of your writeup. Being thé real you and not trying to be whom you are not.

NB- please let us learn to accord our fatherland her due respect irrespecting of whatsoever and try not to generalize an issue just because of few people. Thanks.

Settling in


As a fairly good-looking fella, when i went to church last Sunday, i was getting lots of stares from the females. grin grin


ha! where do i start from?? so much has happened this week.
=============================================================================

the weather has gone from bad to worse; my cousins who have been warning us about how cold chicago gets werent joking at all. If someone had told me that you would not feel the warmth of the sun even when its up there shinning down at you, I wouldnt have believed. grin

Some days back, i woke up around 8:00am (or so), peeked out the window, saw the sun up and blazing. It snowed the night before and I thought it would be nice to open up the garage door and shovel the driveway while wearing just my boxer shorts and one polo grin grin grin grin grin

kai! As I opened up the garage door, the cold hit me like a trailer! in my haste to run back inside, i even left the garage door open. grin grin
had to go back inside and dress like an eskimo for the task at hand.


================================================================================

the other day, I, my siblings and my cousins went sight-seeing. towards the evening, we drove past one nice neighborhood where almost all the houses were beautifully decorated with christmas lights. I was just thinking in my mind that these people dont know what to use money for grin grin

na wahala. I pay 171 dollars per semester for using the facility and I wish I can go there
more frequently.
Well, depending on your genes and eating habits, you can manage weight issues. Avoid eating
dinner after 8pm and eat small meals multiple times a day. Seems you are having fun, please
enjoy the moment. Life is too short. Your thread is very entertaining.

And as a handsome guy. .. and all the babes eyes on you in church... didn't you flash your Techno and have them forming line to drop their contact digits?... you can't be stuck at home... these babes can show you around. ........ and more!
