Evolution of dance

Migs shared this YouTube video. It's very entertaining!

Presenting: the Evolution of Dance by
Inspirational Comedian, Juddson Laiply

then I guess Mr. Bean just couldn't take it when somebody else has the spotlight!

then an animation...I don't really get why they posted is as "evolution of dance". Cute nonetheless!

And then there was WoW

I feel cool and geeky

Try this. Type in Google search "insert xml column"

You'll get
you see that first link? That's mine :D

If you're wondering what kind of geekiness I was in when I inquired in the Microsoft Forums, here's the link:

I was asking why I couldn't provide a schema in the XML data that I was inserting in my XML column. The problem was that my schema properties (the target namespace) was not set correctly. Stupid little oyen....

I like the art, it's the kind of art that I somehow find myself at peace with. However, sadly it's not original. It looks mainstream. Something similar but noticeable original is from Avid :D He wrote-draw the most beautiful book I've ever laid my eyes on :D It's entitled/cover
Read the Book!

You'll <3 it I PROMISE!

Yahoo! Messenger

I like Yahoo! Messenger. It's the very first application I used to chat. I didn't go through the MIRC phase, sorry. But I did have YM way before may high school classmates had one, which was kind of sad since I can chat but I had no one to chat with. (Hello, chatrooms!)

As long as I have internet access, I am almost (98% of the time) online in YM. I used it so often that I get excited when there are Beta releases. Usually, the Beta releases aren't so bad. They only have a few glitches that you can live with until the final release is made. However, YM Vista is an exception.

In YM Vista's Feedback form, they ask what is the rate of you recommending the application to a friend. I give it a 2 out of 10. Pretty low? Well, aside from its cool facade, it lacks functionality. It is still very unstable not to mention cumbersome (I don't know why everything is so big o.o I can adjust the list view but I can't adjust the size of the window frames!)

I hate it when the chat window screen wobbles when I type my message. WTF is up with that? Did they do that on purpose? Was that supposed to be cute? That was annoying and it hurts my eyes. I almost dread the time when someone would message me because that means I'd a mini-headache when I chat back.

Next, why can't I find the archives? Is it there? Or didn't they install it on purpose? That's a very important feature. Whatever will I do when I realize that I can actually blackmail because of a small chat we had??
After some time (I actually wanted to get the YM Vista experience so I stuck with it for a while), I was ready to go back to the old version then I found this :D YM9 Beta!

Download YM9 (Beta)

It has the same funky YM Vista look but it didn't lose any of the old features. It is also more compact. This is my first day in trying it out and I am currently happy with it. I'll let you know when I encounter any irritating problems with it.

I got this link from Loki. This is even better than the How to be emo clip

We were having so much fun with our dorwings that we all craved for a good dessert. And we all know that Burgoo CAN serve good dessert. That's why we shared their humongous Raspberry Cheesecake


Raspberry Cheesecake, After

This reminded me of the steak dinner we had a week ago. I took a picture (I like making other people envious of what I ate).

Maddox's Fashion Tips for Women

I just read Maddox's (not most) recent article regarding his fashion tips for women. It was sensible. It was funny of course but what was even more funny is that it actually and seriously made sense.

* Crocs look like shit and they make your feet smell.
You have to admit that this is true. I can't imagine how someone's feet would smell after walking around in crocs for a whole day. And they truly CANNOT complement anything you're wearing. Compare these
against THESE
Now THAT's a cool shoe. It has purpose and it has style. And yep, that's what I'm wearing.

What happens when it rains?! you ask. Don't be stupid. I live in the Philippines. I won't wear these beautiful shoes in the rain. Duh. I wear may "rain shoes". I bought my pair for Php200 - then I got another pair for free. Oh yeah! 2 Pairs of rain shoes for Php200. And they're not so bad.
But they're not that brand. Those are too expensive. They actually look like a pirate of one of those expensive plastic sandals, I forgot the brand. I'd let you know when I see it in the mall, and I might just post a picture.

Moving on

*Red lipstick makes you look like a clown
I do not agree with that statement. Even if I don't own a red lipstick because the color looks hideous ON ME. I am in awe at people who DO pull them off. (Please ask your mother if the color looks good on you, don't test drive it in the mall - yes, your mother will tell you the truth).

However, I do agree that there are a ridiculous bunch of lip colors in the market. A big chunk of those LOOK THE SAME TO ME! Just because they have different color names, doesn't make them different in color. I guess that's why I actually enjoy shopping for make up in Penshoppe. They have two cheek tint colors: pink and violet. See? Nothing vague about those colors right? (You see, pink looks good for people with white or yellow skin, violet looks better on darker skin tones).

*You are not a Cuban dictator
I agree. You are NOT a Cuban dictator so stop wearing Fidel Castro hats. Actually, stop wearing hats when you don't need them. They don't look cool. They hide your face. If THAT is actually your intention, wear a paper bag over your head, that's more effective. And besides, your head smells awful after a couple of hours (reminder, I live in the Philippines, a tropic country).

Oh and there is another ridiculous thing about these hat-wearers. They hate it when you touch their hair when they take their hats off. WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THAT? You'd wear your hat again anyway, so why not let us touch it? It looks funny after you've worn your hat for so long, OF COURSE we'd be curious how it feels. We're thinking that it's stiff, like you put on gel or something, and we want to test that inference. Or maybe you KNOW your head stinks and that's why you don't want us to touch it. Hmmm... that makes sense. Disgusting... but sensible.

*Self-aggrandizing "hottie" shirts make you look like a bitch
Yep, they do. If you're hot and you TELL the world about it, it makes you less hot. Why not let other people judge? If you are, then you ARE. If you're NOT, a shirt wouldn't make you one. Get it??

*This [flowing blouse] makes you look pregnant
That is one fashion tip I would have to trash. Girls KNOW where the style came from, we actually know that pregnant women used to be the only ones who wore them. We KNOW why we like them. They DO hide our figure. THAT'S THE POINT. Hiding one's figure has two effects: (1) If you have a non-model-like tummy, you get to conceal it, and (2) If you do have a good figure, it would still SHOW through the loose blouse. It even makes you look sexier because it SUGGESTS a good figure --> and letting your audience IMAGINE what's underneath gives you the sexy aura.

We know that tight fitting shirts are good. But for us who don't have those model-tummies, we try to avoid them. They're not the comfortable. You could only imagine. If you can't try one on.


I am a Thong, what kind of swimsuit are you?

You are a Thong

You are daring and outrageous.

You love attention in almost any form, and you'll do a lot to get noticed.

You are proud of your body. You work hard to look good.

Swimsuit season is your favorite time of the year. It gives you a chance to show off your assets!

Negative Calorie Soup Recipe

This recipe for Negative Calorie Soup, by Hahnemann University Hospital Diet.

6 onions
2 green peppers
2 cans whole or crushed tomatoes
1 head cabbage
1 large bunch celery
2 pkg. dry onion soup mix

Cut vegetables into medium size pieces, add soup mix and cover with water. Cook on high for 10 minutes, then lower heat and simmer until vegetables are tender.

Eat as much soup each day as you want. The more you eat the more you lose.

Word Trip: "Ligtening" vs "Lightning"

Saw this

from a hilarious YouTube video,

which got me curious if "lightening" and "lightning" were similar to "color" and "colour", "grey" and "gray".

When I Wiki-ed "lightening", I was directed to the Lightning page. But being a scientist, I needed to check my guess at least one more time. So I checked the Wiktionary,

1. Present participle of lighten.

And for a more solid evidence that "lightening" was not used properly,

I hope you were ENLIGHTENED lol

One of the saddest days in my life

Can you see what I'm going through here?

And if that's not enough

Web designers should really be careful on how they phrase their messages. They just might hurt people!

I got this from MyBlogLog's Friender service.

Have an emo day!

Look what I have in my aquarium


Some people think fish are boring. This one looks quite interesting to me...

I took this using my Olympus 1030 (yeah, I'm bragging). I dipped it in a glass of water then asked my friend to pose .

I suddenly have the urge to go swimming :D

How to

I was about to search for a "how to sql xml" on Google Search then the following popped out. I'm not sure how Google Search decides which phrases to suggest but I'm guessing that they're the top phrases with the most queries.

I just had to see what the search would yield.
