Posted by modoathii in anniversary, happy first, links fest.

The date: September 15th 2006

It was a lazy afternoon when I got a forward from some forwarder that contained a hilarious story from a certain Kenyan Chick who had angushad vibe about a guide to Kenya and sheng. I was curious to check who this KC be. There was a strange link which I followed after a lot of CSI Thompson (where I used to work) and voila…

Some chick with a hilarious blog!

From her blog I got links to other bloggers who I then followed the whole afternoon. (mdosi asisome hii…nitafutwa…wait, i already left that place so siezi futwa). Only to discover a whole new village called blogosphere.

By end of day, I had already amuad…blogging I will blog.

It was a ‘vice’ I had said I won’t be sucked in, considering, I hated comps, I hated cybers (still do), I hated anything net…little did I know. I had known about blogging for like months before, but her blog and blogosphere really shikad me..and I was hooked.

So I took a deep breath…opened blogspot since that was the biggest then, and away we went…


Name: Modoathii…a corruption of dooaz. I attribute it to my pal kitambo kule CCL. It sounded funky and I needed an undercover name…

Content: I had no idea what the content would be. But I knew it would be, had to be Madness. I amuad I wouldn’t get personal on my blog. Just unleash total madness. And where best to unleash madness than on a couch…a psychiatrist’s couch.

Blogname: The couch

Link: madcouch.blogspot.com….kumbe couch had been tumiwad by one couch ‘tato. Naivete thinking whichever name I chose would be readily available. so niakongeza quite appropriately ‘mad’.

Post one: the day i discovered the couch was my buddy done under a huge amount of alcohol (vodo of cos). I had no idea what to write and I actually let my fingers do the walking and the vodo the talking.

First Visitor: Iwaya…and his quote, which I remember, not word for word, (I’m not a nerd) but I’ll quote him “For many reasons i have been looking forward with anticipation to more entries, are you gonna leave me hanging?”

And he gave me psych! And I didn’t leave him hanging. Thanks man!

Of course my other was the “couch ‘tato” himself, plus kina Princess, Gish, Uaridi, and EGM (tulitoana mbali Gish na EGM). And these 6 plus my first anonymous character walinikaribisha na…the rest…look under library section….HISTORY!…it is.

I’ve shared my madness and Marto’s much to the appreciation of all of you. Who I’ve come to know and respect madly along this interesting journey.
