Argh!

I was going to make this so much more elaborate, but I've failed. All my mandarin and arabic-speaking friends are unavailable, so I'm having to reveal it to you in the form of a riddle on this website, actually, this post. Let's see how smart you guys are!

nice one...

You are going to the world cup.

You better put yourself in hiding now, some people are going to try to find you and get those tickets.. Newcross is only at the end of the Eastern line you know (lol)

Nkem said...

:) I haven't got tickets. I'm going to "work"!

You are about to buy new set of African print shirts! Is that right? I know you have passion for them. Am I right???

Monef said...

Well, it definitely says you are going to the world cup!
You are going to be covering it, for who???
Spill all now, I command you!

You're going to the world cup and here was i thinking you'd won the lottery. Anyways i suppose it must be really exciting stuff you being into footbal(bored yawn !!!!!!!)and all. Now if you'd won the lottery i would have had to jazz you.

Nkem said...

A World Cup ticket is actually worth more than a lottery ticket righ now. Besides, if I won the lottery I wouldn't tell anyone, I'd just move quietly to Monaco, and tell you guys I was a cleaner for Prince Rainier:)

I'm going to be working for a company which has the broadcasting rights for Africa! I will be presenting a daily magazine show, or summat like that. I'll find out the details soon enough.

Anonymous, have you got a Manchurian Candidate type bug in my brain? You're spying on my brain, you evil genius you! Mwahahaha! Yep, I'm about to order some. Any designers want their clothes broadcast to millions?

Ok, I knew you were going to the World Cup, but I can't decipher this thing. I'm SMART, I AM!!! Tell me how it works.......

Nkem said...

Soul, I'd give you a "shout out" if I could bring myself to be razz enough. How about some Schwarzwald Kuchen?

Now I wouldn’t typically label myself a player hater, but by Jove do I hate u right now. Do you even like football? Congratulations though. U reporting on general news or just the football matches? You did the African nations cup as well didn’t you? Ah…there’s a pattern emerging here. Can I be your friend?
I’m a dab hand at all things laundry related…I’ll scrub the prints out of your African shirts…commmoooonnnnn!

Nkem said...

Come come Ai'Hammed! No need for the hateration :-) I like my football, but I'm not addicted ( I grew out of it). I used to be addicted, and in fact I got into journalism because of football. I read something by the Telegraph football writer, Henry Winter, in which he slagged off African football, and that was what made me start writing. People used to say that my future wife would be a football widow, and I had many years' worth of World Soccer (not sure where they are now). At the time, I'd read the match report of the same football match in all the newspapers. Yep, I was hooked alright. It might interest you to check out my first ever blog...

Soul said...
