…And yes, I know I spelled her name as Funmi (instead of Funmie) in the tag. I can’t be bothered to change the tag in all the posts with her name, so her tag will have to remain as Funmi.
Styling & Profiling: Funmie
November 15, 2009 by 30 Comments
I talk about Funmie a lot here. Funmie this. Funmie that. By the way, she’s the one who insists that her name be spelled with an e – Funmie instead of Funmi. She thinks it’s special that way. I guess it is. I’m styling and profiling her because I realize that each time I mention her name, I don’t have any single post to link her name to. For first time readers, they might want to know who the heck Funmie is and why her name appears so many times on Verastic dot com.
I met Funmie in 2002. Since then, it’s seemed like we have gotten closer by the minute. We have a lot in common. Too many sad, unfortunate things in common. But it has helped build our character. Of course, there are also those moments that we think or say the same thing at the same time. Spooky. I’m trying hard not to make her big head swell – the head is really big already – but this babe is more than words can say. She’s so giving, so generous, so nice, and so flippin’ annoying because of that. I hate that she can be so — so — what’s the word? Passive?? I hate it.
Her niceness overwhelms me sometimes – and not in a good way. I just want to scream. The way I’m sounding, you’ll think I’m one fierce, no-nonsense girl, but that’s hardly the case. Or maybe it’s the case. I’m not even sure about myself. I think I’m an under cover fierce babe. I usually start off smiling and pretending to be nice. But I digress…
Funmie is my self-hired administrative assistant. Yes, she employed herself as my administrative assistant, and so far, I’m not quite sure how I feel about her job performance. I still end up doing what I want her to do, and she claims it’s my fault because I’m supposed to send her reminders. Seriously???
I have to commend Funmie though. She is my biggest [female] fan. (We’ll get to the biggest male fan later). I cannot even believe I have a friend who is this excited and interested in me. She reads every single blog post. She’s even subscribed to it. She listens LIVE to every single radio show. The only time she did not call in was the weekend she was seriously ill, but even then, she still listened to it LIVE. When she was very busy helping a friend cook, she still listened via phone and called in. The chic just surprises me.
She’s done a lot more actually. But these will have to suffice for now. I often fantasize about the day I’ll have some money, take her shopping, and totally blow her mind. Enjoy the pictures.
If I lay my hands on that red belt, it’s mine forever.
Only Funmie can tell you what she was doing to that Christmas light decoration (Oh, my goodness! Can’t believe it’s already almost a year since we took this picture).
But this is her true color right here …. the crazy girl you hear shouting on Verastically Speakin Talk Radio.
