iGoogle is made of WIN.

Monday, June 25th, 2007

If you haven’t tried iGoogle yet, you should. Aside from the practical, useful and informative stuff, here are pretty good reasons to try it out:

CLICK to see full size

This is so worth it, I have my daily dose of comedy, LOLcats, and CHUCK NORRIS. That should be reason enough for everything! Chuck Norris is THE reason, I should end this post at that.

ROFL okay but seriously, it’s pretty convenient. Aside from these fun stuff, I’ve got a tab for current events and stuff (CNN, TIME, ESPN, Movies and Top Stories), and I’ve got the main tab for the practical stuff like a clock, calendar, a post-it thingy and a Wikipedia search form. There are a lot more gadgets for it, but I haven’t really gone through them. I even have a daily puppy picture in my main tab, just for fun. :)

And another thing I really love about it is that if you pick a theme, it changes with the time of day. In my screenshot, it’s bright coz it’s daytime here. At sunset it changes to an orange-pink color, and at night it’s a nice night scape. Awesome.

Google seems to be doing everything right hmm?

Makes You Wonder…

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

…what kind of world we live in, when you see things like this:

I’m not entirely sure what to think of this sign. I don’t have any article to back this up, unfortunately, so I offer no explanation on why such a sign even exists. Maybe, if you ever find yourself in a situation where people are trying to send you to some torture chamber (Do they still exist?!), you could always get yourself a wheelchair?

I have no idea haha. At the very least, they’re considerate.

Tickle Me Freud

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

Found this funny little thing heheh. It’s “Tickle Me Freud”, if you squeeze his foot he’ll give out a belly laugh for a full 10 seconds. LOL. Yeah he can come up with pretty complex theories, he can probably own you in scrabble too, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a sense of humor ;) So whenever you feel stressed, tickle the philosophical old man. Haha!

Click Click

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Haha good stuff. It isn’t possible to think of any better reason to get your own apparent. This reason > all.

Kidding aside though, I personally can’t stand that clicking sound. I feel like the whole universe is being thrown off-balance whenever I hear it. Maybe it’s the obsessive-compulsive side of me. Or maybe because it’s�really just irritating. Haha. Poor fan.

It’s all fun and games till you fan dies on you, and you have to suffer in heat before going out to get a new one. Rofl.

Trashcat

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

LOL! I’m trying to figure out how the rest of that cat’s body is�crammed in there. Also I wonder if it went in there on its own or if it was stuffed in.

Anyways these cat�image macros�are really amusing. They’re called “LOL Cats” apparently, there was an article on Yahoo about this recently. And they’re very popular in image boards. But unlike normal image macros, people actually spend time to manipulate stuff, like make their cats pose, wear stuff, eat stuff, etc etc. Like this one haha. Some people have way too much time on their hands.�Fortunately for the rest of us, it makes for good entertainment haha.

Personally though, I’m not a cat person. I mean, I think they’re cute, but I wouldn’t get one for a pet. I just can’t live with the idea that there are some times when they don’t wanna be disturbed. :<

Completely unnecessary…

Thursday, June 7th, 2007

…but cute nonetheless. Well I got a new 8GB iPod Nano (my 2GB one died) and was looking around for random iPod stuff when I stumbled on this little critter.

It’s the iDog! Well if you plug it in your iPod and you have your genre tags right, this should be fun.

Apparently he reacts to the genre, like if you have rock music on he becomes rebellious, pop & rnb makes him happy, dance music makes him excitable. Then sometimes it could request for certain genres, at least I think that’s how it goes. Pretty cute eh? There are 3 different “personalities” and 8 different moods. I hope I got that right. LOL. This is the type of thing I could actually consider getting for my Pod. Because…it’s fun.

The Kitty Could Save Your Life

Wednesday, June 6th, 2007

Sorry for the blurry image, I just had to share this. Lol. I’ve been stumbling on some funny image macros recently. The guy in the picture is a Korean singer I think, coz I found it on a Korean�music forum thingie. Hahaha still. Take it.

I wonder if I should try making my own image macros. Could be fun. :D

Tickets

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Went to the movies with some friends, and a weird thing happened. We bought the tickets a few hours early, and we were even joking around when we were deciding who should keep the tickets, because we all didn’t feel comfortable about keeping them. We were saying that it would be funny if we actually lost the tickets after all that fuss. Of course back then it was a joke. Hours later when it was time to watch, we actually LOST THE TICKETS. Hahaha can you believe it..

So we ended up buying again. Actually the guy who lost the tickets bought for us again, made me feel kinda bad because there were 3 of us, and it’s like he paid for the movie 4x the regular ticket price. The movie was Shrek 3 btw. Honestly I liked Shrek 2 better, but it’s still good. I love that line at the end when Arty says “The only person standing in your way…is you.” and then the guys wanna beat that one guy up LOL (highlight it to read, if you’ve already seen the movie).

Well that’s all, just thought I’d share heheh.
