Just Damn Moody

“All my life I had to fight. I had to fight my daddy. I had to fight my brothers. I had to fight my cousins and my uncles. A girl child ain’t safe in a family of men. But I never thought I’d have to fight in my own house. She let out her breath. I loves Harpo, she say. God knows I do. But I’ll kill him dead before I let him beat me.”
Alice Walker, The Color Purple

When i was reciting those famous words this morning, it had nothing to do with a family feud. The pain in my shoulders was begging for me to stop the torture but knowing this was the last day before the start of the “week of feasting” or “belly busting week” i had to endure it. The plank pose felt a lot tougher this time due to the heat and the sweat dripping down my face was getting into my eyes, stinging like hell. I swore i could hear Oprah’s voice in the background. Although the tv was on, Miss Winfrey was relaxed and just doing her thing interviewing First Lady Michelle Obama. Maybe i was been moody because of the fear of sabotaging my great efforts but in my head that angry face of Sophia kept popping out screaming to stop crying like a baby because there are worse things that can happen to a girl. There is always January to counteract what all that glorious food had done to our glorious hips and it’s not the end of the world. Unless you are watching those countless videos and photos out of Aleppo and wondering “God, what the hell…?.” i’m saying a little prayer this whole month especially to those innocent children, can’t imagine it, the loss of a childhood is a sin. Oh! I’m so moody right now, i think i will leave it at that and go read others posts.

Enjoy Christmas Everyone.

Daily Prompt: Folly

via Daily Prompt: Folly



While yahoo was sleeping, something took place in their house that you would not expect to happen to a house with so much to lose. While they were dozing off billions of sensitive information was stolen right from under their noses. Nothing was broken, no one got murdered. They found the door ajar and it was not a one day job, but the hackers kept coming back for more without being found out, that is how easy it was for them. The messages sent out to subscribers to change passwords and look out for any funny activities around their emails came too late. The most upsetting thing was to learn that all these folly happened three years ago and they felt generous enough to only inform people about it now. They are reassuring people that no financial information and banking details was compromised as they keep these separate from the hacked system that stores personal information including names, email addresses and security questions. I don’t know what beside corruption and causing misery do these people intent to do with my information but in the hands of hackers i know personal information is like gold and it needs the utmost care to keep it safe.
