Happy Valentines Day / Singles Awareness Day! \o/

I am one of the people on my team who was blogging even before the IBM CSC assignment to Nigeria, so I have to say that not every single blog entry will always be work-related to the project. Sometimes I just wanna have some fun on my blog post too!

So in that spirit, I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day to those in relationships! To us single people, I wish you a Happy Singles Awareness Day! It is that one day of the year when the world wants to remind the single people that if only we tried a little harder, we too could spend money having to buy chocolates, stuffed animals, teddy bears, clothing, or other items to demonstrate our affection.

This Valentines Day I have 2 special beings in my life: David and Gordon. They are the geckos that live in my hotel room. In normal circumstances I would hate having them around, but actually they are awesome roommates so far. They like to eat mosquitoes so they are instantly my friends. David is clearly the more awesome of the two (don’t tell Gordon) as he sees fit to explore the entire hotel and return back to my room and generally takes the watch above my bed as ultimate protector. Gordon on the other hand, generally lives behind the painting in my room. He darts out every now and then, says something that sounds like “nurp nurp” (I respond in kind), and then he goes back behind the painting. What I don’t like is that Gordon “sings” at 05.30 in the morning. Well even with non-human roommates, compromises must be made…
