Hilarious. I see you still live up to your 'Overwhelmed' name.

Your friend anonymous is back again :D. I don't ever take off the image verificaion on my site. The minute I do that, I get about a hundred comments [I'm not joking] from bots.

It seems they're just waiting.

Don't feel to bad about not knowing the brand of PC you use. I couldn't care less about mine -- it just needs to work.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@yankeenaijachick: Thanks luv

@Icy: lol… thanks… but I hope you don’t think you’ve gotten out of doing it oh!

@Azuka: lol@ living up to my overwhelmed name… I wasn’t even aware I did that!... I bloody hate doing comment verifications that’s the only reason I don’t put it up on my blog… cos a lot of times I cant see the words properly then I have to keep re-entering until I get it… soo soo annoying.. but why they gotta keep doing the same thing over and over again?!?!?

Me I refuse 2 be tagged o! My name is not there, so even though I may have danced 2 thriller and konko below and i know the words 2 mary has a little lamb, I did not see "Vera" there, so I as far as I'm concerned, I have not been tagged!

Is it true that Sponge Bob is gay?

TP said...

No oh… I never even watched a full episode of that show in my life… but now I’m gonna start watching out for some characteristics… lol… but isn’t that wrong somehow… checking the sexual orientation of a cartoon character?!?!?!
