Rita vs Lorin: Compare & Contrast
I have a confession to make. I don’t follow politics, don’t follow being my loose term for “I know jackshit about it.” I thought it would be something I’d get an interest for growing older, the way vegetables become more palatable when we mature. Unfortunately, I still prefer chicken nuggets over ampalaya and I now get into daily fights with my younger brothers every 6.30 pm, they want to watch...
The Cost Of Mistrust
I saw this super cute laptop sleeve eons ago featured on Geeksugar. I wanted to buy it, but I hesitated (I probably had just splurged on a gadget or something). I put it off my mind for some time and when I finally decided to buy it, I had a difficult time finding it. So much so that I bought 3 different envelope looking laptop sleeves to compensate. When I finally found it, I happily...
Fuck you very, very much, CSS
I just wanted two goddam things: 1. a damned “Tweet this” button on my blog. 2. a Facebook “Like” this button on my blog. I waded through a bajillion how-to sites that all read like goddam Greek to me. It took me two freaking hours for a dim, flickering light of understanding to dawn on me, an SOS SMS to a friend (which also read Greek to me), a creation of a dummy...
What else do you want to know? Where my G-spot is?– First time client (never met yet) called me today: Client: Are you Chinese? Me: No. Client: Ha? (disappointed) Client: How old are you? Me: 28. Client: Are you single or married? Me: Single. Client: Uso na talaga yan, ano? (Being single at your age is in vogue, no?) *grits teeth* All of her...
Went a little, lot apeshit over Hello Kitty stickers at Fully Booked today. I did try to edit out some when I got to the counter, but only ended up removing one sheet, so I told myself “ah, screw it” and got all the sheets I wanted. I’m now looking for spaces to go sticker happy.
Cum As You Are (or Cum As You Please)
Dear New Magazine Girl, Blame it on my dirty, dirty mind, but of all the words to abbreviate when texting, please don’t let it be the word “come”. Because when you ask me whether I can “cum”, these are the responses that I want to type in reply to your innocuous question: 1. Can I cum? With the proper stimulation (perhaps preceded with a gift bearing the...
I’ve got Tumblr on my mind too much.– Yesterday at the makeup room: Ara: Girl! I love your Tumblr! It’s so you!!! Me: (trying to recall my theme) Wow, thanks! Ara: it’s so girly! Mine’s just a plain black. Me: (she has Tumblr too? It was a good thing I waited for her to finish before asking for her URL...
The best part of every Friday
Dear @shondarhimes, You make my Fridays awesome (I live on a different time zone). It’s always been my tradition to watch Grey’s while my browser is opened to the writers’ blog, which I try to read slowly and savor like candy that I can only have once a week. You guys rock. Love, Fangirl Tatin
Blogging from the iPad
Can the iPad be a handy gadget for bloggers? With these apps, the answer is hell, yeah. Here’s how I blog on an iPad from Tumblr and the tools I use. 1. Since Tumblr doesn’t have an app for iPad yet (only for iPhone) and even then its app does not support multiple uploading of photos in one post, I post from Tumblr’s site using a good ol’ web browser. The text...
Slept at 6 am finishing an article and was feeling out of sorts today until this box of goodies arrived for me. It’s here at last! My iPad camera kit. (BTW, this whole Tumblr post was done exclusively from the iPad, from uploading photos right down to the text, woot!) My Hard Candy Sleek Skin case for iPad (in pink of course) arrived too. At last, my iPad is naked no more! ...
I can't stop thinking about it.
…and the obsession begins. Rationalization # 1: it’s like you like designer handbags, except gadgets. Rationalization # 2: who says you can have only one laptop anyway? Rationalization # 3: Look how pretty!
Dammit, dammit, dammit! I wonder if anyone’d be willing to buy my old one despite it having my name etched on the surface? This is just conjecture, don’t worry. But, dammit.
The Indelible Test
I got home today at 6 am, and when my image of waiting to vote (like waiting at a doctor’s office, where the only hassle is the waiting) was laughingly debunked by Pammy, Jill, Ram & Giff (“Gaga, tatayo ka sa pila sa init, no!”), I was almost not going to go through with it. I had no sleep and there was no way I was going to stand under the beating sun to jostle around with...
Holy TonyMoly Beauty, Batman!
Over dinner tonight, Lele arrived with goodies from her recent Korean trip. When she handed me a little pot with a black lid, I thought it was gel eyeliner, I was, after all only just complimenting her on her new navy eyeliner. I tore the seal and eagerly unscrewed the lid to see what color I got, and was taken aback when all I saw was a clear, thick gel that almost resembled clear Jell-O. I...
I love notebooks. I love them so much that at any given time, I have around five different ones in my bag, all with a different “purpose” (when really I just want to carry them all), and I have a million more lying around the house, all with a few pages of writing on them before I move on to the next notebook. They’re my favorite thing to buy when traveling, when browsing at...
True Bloody Goodness
Finally, my first iBooks purchase (am still trying to get used to the fact that I can use my iTunes credits to buy books because once I do, this is gonna cost me). I was waiting for it at the Kindle store but oddly enough it wasn’t available yet. I also checked Barnes and Noble and they were selling it for $12.99 (whuuut!?) and I got it from the iBookstore for the sweet, sweet price of...
Tough Time at Toby's
Over dinner one night, Lele was telling us about how helpful her mini-stepper was and how it could be bought at Toby’s for a reasonable price. When I saw Pammy and Jill’s cute, jelly blue version last Saturday, I finally decided to get one myself. I went to the Park Square branch of Toby’s and asked the guy to bring one out for me. I went to the cashier and handed my BPI...
We are the champions, my friend
When you are feeling all sluggish and ho-hum today, let this thought of the day carry your sleepy burden and power you on like a box of (Grrrr-eat!) Frosties. When you are champion, you are never fail. Bow.
Anyone who’s been following me on Twitter must’ve been sick of my constant tweeting about the iPad. This is a long overdue review/post about it, and you can blame it all on my iPad, fondly named padbunny to round up my bunny-named devices (e.g. 1st gen iPhone = luvbunny, iPhone 3G = buhbunny, etc etc). Anyway, I’ve had padbunny for exactly three weeks now and I can honestly...
(Bordeaux, 2008, where even the ordinary things brimmed with character.) Test posting with a photo via the iPad. I’m using HTML to link a photo from Flickr. Here’s hoping an app for iPad comes out, pronto. (Hint, hint, Tumblr).
