BLOG wedding

So now there is going to be a blog wedding. The Blue Poet has proposed to Ms Mshairi. I wonder if Blue knew what "makelele" and furore he would generate from his simple statement.

Our weddings are usually very formal and fussy affairs (to my mind) and the prospective groom has to appease so many relatives - aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, grand parents, in-laws and several family members who rejoice in creating chaos. And chaos is what this blog wedding becoming, with everyone putting in their 0.50p worth of comments.

Among the loudest protesters of this wedding are Mama Junkyard and Nick: they don't like the way Blue proposed, they want to see the engagment ring and know the size of the dowry (bride price). When MJY and Nick got married they did not tell anyone, including and especially the family. Suddenly there were new links - wifey and blog husband - on their blogspots, a done deal. No comments allowed. It was a bush wedding (or ohiki wa mabebeini)

Meanwhile back to the proposal. It is clear to me that this was a well-thought out strategy on Blue's part. While waging the war on Nick, he saw the vast numbers of supporters on his enemy's side and has decided to join the winning family. Numbers do count. He is insuring that for whatever reason, he will always this large (and growing) family on his side. GOOD STRATEGY BLUE.

LOL - now you too sound divided, on one hand you are telling Blue off for his 'shady' proposal and not seeking family approval and on the other commending him for the 'smoove' move into the family mould.

Poor sod, that Blue is, has he any idea what he is getting himself into? If I were Mshairi, I would whisk him off and keep him for myself (Ok, I am not trying to get myself a one-way ticket off the family fold :)

Cant wait to see how this unfolds LOL

I'm just waiting for the ka-rice and stew at the reception that I want to gate-crash like a fly in ointment...

I also hope they write customized vows as those will be a sight to behold.

Lakini Blue should reveal what the mahari will be! Even as an outsider, romantic poetry won't cut it!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have taken much thought in what I started and I feel that I owe NO apologies! Where I come from we first propose to the damsel and then we seek FAMILY approval! Would I not be foolish to propose and the fair lady turns me down!

I AM into Mshairi and she means the world to me- she has indicated that she is considering my proposal VERY seriously!

@ Family members- I appreciate all of your concern for the fantastic lady that you have in your midst- the minute she says YES- I will show my true colours(kao ones). I will bring my wazees and please be informed- I AM well prepared- I gots COWS CAMELS MBURIS HORSES BUFFALO etc. ' mutinginina ngombe na mburu cikua- nu tundu uthoni ndutangatagagwo na umuhaka ndimuhe gitiio- ndmuthaithatha mutikahikii.

Guess: I am not being divided - I think she whispered. He is being smoove, check the comments on the mahari. What I question is the proposal - out there in the blog world - whats up with that? Like you say, he should have just whisked her off. Waiting too

Mshairi: those who sit in the sidelines see much!!

Milionaire: Can you imagine what the poets will write as their vows?

Nick my dear: If I start on the wrongness of what the pair of you do, it will be a blog war that will divide the family so, let's just say karibu to the family and know that you have a lot to make up for.

Bwana Blue: Thank you for explaining to us how the Kaos propose. Of course I know you will provide for Mshairi. I read somewhere that you have bought a small country for her and the national colours are purples and lilacs. You have also decreed that no snakes and creepy insects are allowed in the nation.

I was just commending you on the move - smoove or otherwise. Granted, the lady in question is a true catch.

Maybe this should be in Blue's posting on the proposal which I heard was not a stand alone proposal but mixed with other kathalikas or was it in the comments section. Blue big mistake as you are dissing the family at least me, get us or me on your side and you will not have to deliver on those broken promises which you are making left,right and centre. Heshima which you don't seem to have in abundance will be your downfall. I am not sitting on any fence on this one as always I am with Nephew Nick let us show your "uncle" the door until he crawls across the Sahara for lovely Mshairi's hand. Blue wapi ndege yako? I am sure you know Mshairi spurned a possible suitor who had offered one of those as part of the deal. We are now talking Executive jet before you start throwing proposals all over the place. Mshairi you keep thinking about this proposal when you know that there are too many against who are not saying anything.
