Buzugee/Nairaland, So I Want To Talk About Living Abroad by isalegan2: 9:24pm On Jan 22, 2011
This is a general thread to continue our discussion re: America, Life Abroad, whether Buzugee is a misogynist or simply looking out for the womenfolk, etc.

This should get you started.  I have to go but will add to this when I return.  Meanwhile, it's your show, Badagry. cheesy Go on and elaborate.

buzugee:

i totally feel your pain bro. i currently live in america and it is an extremely stressful country. very harsh place to live. wouldnt wish it on my enemy.

buzugee:

so OP do not listen to any of these armchair psychoanalysts, psychologists, psychiatrists, mind benders and pseudo-soothsayers. go in search of your happiness in nigeria BUT PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE do not leave america until you have enough money to buy a small house for yourself in nigeria. dunno what house prices are like in nigeria but i am assuming you should be able to get a bungalow for 40 thousand dollars. so try to make some more money. do overtime or whatever it takes to get that money. then go off in search of your happiness.

buzugee:

best ever advice yet. and the person is a 'she' ? please dont spend your fertile and beautiful years in misery in america like so many nigerian women do. before they know it they are over 30, angry, no longer attractive, husbandless and irate in america. i see em in chicago all the time  grin grin grin grin

isale_gan2:

Buzugee or Badagry or whatever you call yourself. tongue I'm gonna rake you over the coals for your not-so-subtle misogynistic "utterances" one day when I'm feeling up to kicking some butt, ok? We'll meet again. wink

buzugee:

lmao you know my intention was not to be misogynistic. i am speaking from experience. i have family members who are female in exactly the same predicament. middle aged, no kids, living alone, in america, and not too happy but dont want to go to nigeria for fear of the unknown. (extended not nuclear family)

elaborate kini ? grin grin

Badagry,

Don't make me reach into this computer O.  I'll grab your neck with one hand and slap your face off with the other! cheesy Capisce?!

In this thread:

- We will delve into the challenges of living abroad - foreign affairs wink

- We shall provide therapy and support to our fellow Naijas abroad

- We shall attempt to answer general foreign affairs questions from all Naijas or send them somewhere else, preferably to the Romance secction - hehehehe

- We shall give advice on anything and everything to those Naijas living abroad or with family abroad

- We will tackle the age-old question, "what is the meaning of life and what is my purpose in the world?"  Or better still, "which came first, the chicken or the egg?"

- Using your very eloquent and timely presentation, we shall see if you and I can combine our resources and form an entity (be it charitable, for-profit, educational) that will bring together expatriate Naija bachelorettes with Naija bachelors looking to emigrate to Europe or the Americas. * This idea only occurred to me when I saw the below:
buzugee:

all my big sisters friends after years of not finding hubby in england all moved to nigeria in their late thirties. today they all live in lekki and victoria island with their husbands in big houses and 1 or 2 kids. their british 'glow' brought the men to their milkshake as soon as they landed in naija  grin grin
my milkshake brings the boys to the yard  grin

- I also wish to extend my very analytical and problem-solving mind to help Badagry; I see he is world-weary:
i currently live in america and it is an extremely stressful country. very harsh place to live. wouldnt wish it on my enemy.
 

If you fight me on this, Badagry, I will simply change the name and take away your 15 minutes of NL fame. 

* We will not be doing this; I am not a pi-mp.  I can't speak for Badagry though.

Fields Of Gold, original by Sting
This version re-arranged and sung by Eva Cassidy

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze awhile
Among the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

People get ready, original by Curtis Mayfield
Rearranged and sung by Eva Cassidy

People get ready, there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear diesels are hummin'
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

People get ready for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and board 'em
There's room for all, not the loved and lost.

Now there ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who's hard on mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances are thinner
'Cause there's no hiding place from the Kingdom's storm

Oh people get ready, there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear diesels hummin'
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

I'm getting ready
I am ready yeah
Oh, I'm getting ready
I am ready yeah

Today in America:

All the U.S. morning news shows are saying Oprah's (this month's big publicity stunt is that she's) got a secret to reveal.  Today, I guess.   

Who gives a crap?  Is she finally going to confirm?:
- No one knows who her real daddy is cos . . .  lipsrsealed
- That she's a semi-literate heifer who wouldn't know a good book if it fell on her head; Book Club ko Meat Club ni
- That . . . .

Okay, I'll be nice.  I'm not on the Oprah parade.  'Tis all a bunch of hype.
Re: Buzugee/Nairaland, So I Want To Talk About Living Abroad by fstranger1: 4:37pm On Jan 24, 2011
You ve got something against Oprah?

So as not to derail: WHats the point of this thread again?
Re: Buzugee/Nairaland, So I Want To Talk About Living Abroad by isalegan2: 5:01pm On Jan 24, 2011
Whatever.  What do you want?  Do you not like my thread?

Oops.  Forgot the  smiley

P.S. Stranger, did you like any of the songs?  Do you know anything about Eva Cassidy?  I'm sure there is one very important thing about her you should already know if you searched on her at all.

This thread is already derailed. Talk about anything you want.  I'm gonna let it evolve into my general/all-purpose thread.  I don't care to talk about Oprah - posted it cos it was the 1st "news story" I saw this morning.

How have you been the last couple of days?  How was your weekend?  How's your life abroad? (on-topic for foreign affairs.)  cool

awww, so obvious that fstranger has a thing for Isale_gan grin grin Isale, treat my little brother right, occassionaly you might feel the need to pour hot grit on his kikini lol. fight against that urge.

@Isale_

Where in abroad are you?

And I'm looking to move up north (i.e maine, NY, NJ, etc) in a few (very few) months. . . . for jobs and schooling. What type of challenges should I be looking forward to?

I.e, environmental challenges, services, job search, the people etc.


No no, unlike buzugee, am not looking for romance. . . . married, 6 kids.

Your little brother is a terror.  This is what he said before, and I'm not gonna let him forget it.  I think it was all a joke though, poor lad.  smiley

I sense a coup here

Anyway, it is with joy and warm heart that I announce to every one on NL that I just closed the deal on Isale_gan2. I have just booked my ticket to Isale Eko to see her parents and in due time we will announce our engagement programme.

PS: I here by declare that all statement made in this post are true complete and correct to the best of my knowledge, and no other person may communicate, directly or indirectly, with my Isale_gan2 without  my permission.

Georgia.

I know.  With Ileke, she's either 23 or 33 or 43/44.  Then she calls you her little bro.  Leaves me befuddled cos I'm hoping you're much older than that.

Did you really finish college in 2007?  That's USA right? 

P.S. That would mean you're under 30. Don't tell me. sad
Re: Buzugee/Nairaland, So I Want To Talk About Living Abroad by fstranger1: 3:44am On Jan 25, 2011
What does this look to you?

22 or 44?

I will take it down as soon as you are done analyzing it:

Ileke,
Have you heard of Eva Cassidy before? If not, click on "Fields of Gold" or "People Get Ready" YouTube links. Great Singer. I've known of her for a decade. Interesting.
