It's June... thank God!! For my first June Post, I've decided to catch this 7even things meme bug which has been going around blogville...Yeah, I know I've not been tagged, but who cares??? I don't!

1. I studied Geology in the University... Yeah... that's my brand of science... I like all them talk of liquid Gold!!! Talk about seismic interpretation, petrophysical evaluation, etc and you'll certainly get me interested!

2. I'm extremely secretive.... tell me something you'd like to be kept under wraps and even my hubby wouldn't hear it... a lot of my friends trust me with things they would tell no other!

3. On the contrary, I detest talking about my very personal life to all and sundry... I hardly even discuss it with family! maybe that's why I find it difficult to go the whole hog with blogging! I like to seperate blogging from my real life although sometimes the two interwine when someone who knows me discovers my blog!!! Everything for me is on a need-to-know basis and you don't need to know!

4. I am proud of where I'm from...I am from NYEMONI, i.e. Abonnema, one of the small Islands that make up the Kalabari kingdom...That's where I got the name of my blog from...I love my people, the language and the food...NYEMONI 4 lyfe!

5. I dislike the sports golf and cricket.... I think they're painstakingly boring!!! Too long! A friend has explained the rudiments of golf to me before so I understand it a bit more but I refuse to give it a chance to grow on me!!

6. I'm an information junkie... I like to know a bit of everything!!! I love to watch TV shows like "The Weakest link" and "Who wants to be a millionaire" so I can test my general knowledge.....

7. Photography is an untapped hobby of mine.... I would like to delve into it soon!!!

P.S
I hereby tag the 7even peeps underlisted:
april, mimi, pamela, solomonsydelle, jaja, believer and beyond... Get to it guys! End of!

You're like the 3rd Abonnema person I'm meeting on blogger, so nice to add u to my list! :)

April said...

Interesting...I'll get to doing this meme asap!:->

Btw, I absolutely adore the name Nyemoni. It's interesting that it's the name of a place, but can it also be a person's name too (or not)? It's lovely.

Hello Gal

I've been reading all the nice things on ur blog .....not bad at all. Ur quite a writer but truth be told, I'm not into this You tube & bloggn stuff. Frankly the internet can be a waste of time. It has killed the good old virtues of reading and the great out-doors. But it is nice to see you guys are exchanging ideas and building internet friendships.

This is Moni's sis and I would like to say thanks to u all for all ur kind tots and prayers. I pray God holds you all in the palm of His hands and above all grant you all ur hearts desires in Jesus name. Peace in Iraq, Nigeria and Somalia.

SET said...

THX, HOW ARE YOU? ANYWAYS ONE THING I WONDER WHY DO WE EVEN TELL PEOPLE WHEN WE WANT CERTAIN THINGS TO BE KEPT A SECRET.

IJEOMA said...

Geology.. interesting sha

talking about secretive... i am the same way too...although a lot of people would define me as open.. I potray that outwardly, but inside mehn.. a lot dey..

Believer said...

Hi sis, will get to it as soon as possible. Meanwhile, how are you doing? Hope great! I think i keep a lot of stuff inside as well anyways have a blessed week.

Uzo said...

Interesting...Photography? Very nice....Geology?

Definitely full of interesting facts

Nyemoni said...

@ ~mimi~ Yes I've seen your tag o! No way! Nyemoni isn't my name o! I 'borrowed' it...

@ יש(Yosh) That's Hebrew innit? So you have an Abonnema friend? Good! And who r the other 2 bloggers??

@ April, It could be someone's name, although I do not know anyone by that name... Nyemoni means "Covet your own"

@ Teesay! *I'm doing a jig* Yay! Nice that you could stop by...I feel you on the internet thing.. it's really killed the reading culture and more and more people favour it over and above the great outdoors fun.. well what can I say?
This is the age of the internet and of course the internet has its benefits. It would be ideal to use the net for whatever purpose we want but it's becoming increasingly difficult to draw the line..thanks for your prayers! On behalf of my blogfam, we appreciate!

@ pamela, no wahala... the name `moni is growing on me....I'll look out for yours...

@ set... I'm good thanks! Didn't you know? sometimes it's like you just want to burst when you keep something inside... you just want to let it out- yet it's supposed to be classified... it's the way of the workld... that's why people go see shrinks... to let it all out!

@ ije, we're quite alike in that regard... outwardly open but very secretive... lol!

@ believer, thanks for stopping by and it would be nice to read from you!

@ uzo.. interesting? lol..yeah, I've always been interested in photography and yes... I am indeed a geologist

Vera Ikeji said...

Very interesting 7even things. Me,i dont tknow how to keep a secret that doesnt affect me. I will tell a close someone not to tell anyone, and he may tell someone not to tel anyone and so on.lol But seriously,if it doesn't affect me directly,dont tell me cos, i will tell someone close to me atleast.

Vera Ikeji said...

Yep, i will tell some very close to me cos we are VERY close.Lol. I don't talk about my private life either, cos that's what it is. Private. I like getting info, not gossip,but i like to educate myself in all ranifications cos i have a younger sister who is 'Miss know it all',lol. She knows so much and always wants to test ur knowledge on general stuff.

LM said...

Ur love for knowledge is what has kept you so well-informed and enriched your blog. It is also makes an individual a pleasure to discuss with.

Keep it up! Belated congrats to your sis on the birth of her son.

Nyemoni said...

@ vera Thank you for warning me!!! And I was going to let you in on a very big secret!! LOL! Anyway, we can't all be the same...

I have got into trouble with my friends for being too secretive...let's say friend 1 says to me, "Don't tell anyone o! Bla bal bla..." I say OK, no wahala.. I zip my mouth shut and then later friend 2 comes to me saying, "Have you heard? friend 1 said bla bla bla...don't tell her I told you o" and I say OK. Friend 3 also comes in later and says the same and as usual, I zip it..Later on, we're all just chilling with other friends (say 4 and 5) and friend 1 having probably decided she wants to let every one in on her secret says, "Do you guys know what? Bla bla bla..... as is my nature, I go like "really?" as if I'm hearing for the first time and friend 1 goes, "ah ah now...but I told you on the day it happened now? You were the first person I told!" Geez! My friends 2 and 3 always come back to me sayin "and you were acting like you didn't know when I told you.. Itrust you but you don't trust me..!" Gawd!

@ Im, serious I thought about you today! Where have you been?? Please start your blog soon!! Thanks for the good wishes to my sis!

chidi said...

Ugo Daniels said...

Geology's good. Never could get theu all da -strosphere jargons (my paddy in 9ja did it).

Oh! Moni, please you should lyk it, it's fun in a strange way. It's all about precision and timing.

I also love news generally. I would sit in front of the Telly watching a resun of da news i've seen previously, hoing for an adiitional information..lol!

Linda Ikeji said...

Nyemoni said...

@ chidi... lol...the Kalabari's are in the south-south of Nigeria, we are from Rivers state..

@ ugo yeah, geology! Atmosphere lithosphere, biosphere, lol! You really seem like the type who'd like the news...

@ linda.. You're not the only one o!! Nyemoni is the old name of my village, it's now called Abonnema...

pamelastitch said...

The shopaholic. said...

Abonnema peeps are cool in my book. I grew up in Rivers State so I am somewhat familiar with the LGA's.
Wow, Geology..that's Interesting. You are even cooler. :)

SET said...

LOL AND THE SHRINKS HAVE THE BEST STORIES FOR THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. LOL

Nyemoni said...

@ pamela, wow...you were supposed to do it on your page so other peeps would comment!! I'm still waiting for it on your page, but I love dodo and eggs as well!!!
And I liked it when you said "i am one of those easy going people that are quite hard to find BUT do not take advantage of it.
" It's good to tell it like it is sometimes!!!!!!!!

@ shopaholic, you lived in PH?No kidding! I'm cool eh? Thanks, I'm flattered! :-) LOL

@ sebah... the shrinks had better make sure they do not tell it to someone who will let their patients know or else they'd be sued for breach of ethics!

pamelastitch said...
