I missed the online world

After a few days without internet connection...I'M BACK and bloggin'.

Ilang araw lang akong nawala ang dami nang nangyari. Ang daming bagong balita!!! Feeling ko huling-huli na ko. I need to be updated. Lost na ko.

- After days and days of transporting our things to our house, finally, natapos na.
- Pero kahit tapos na ang paglilipat, ang dami pa ring dapat gawin at ayusin.
- Kanina bumili na ko ng libro. *&(^*%& ANG MAHAL!!! Sa mga nabili ko kanina, 1 lang ang below 100. May kulang pa kong dalawang libro (na parehas para sa Computer class) na bibilin ko naman bukas.
- Nagpaparinigan pala si Willie Revillame at si Joey de Leon. Ang masasabi ko lang, may oral diarrhea talaga si Joey at tingin ko hindi na yun "magagamot".
- Tungkol naman sa previous entry ko...Justin is THE man. He's so hot. He's so talented. Hahaha! Dapat i-clone na sya. Hahaha!

Cavemen, baby!

Study: Chick Magnets Today Look Like Cavemen
By Jeanna Bryner, LiveScience Staff Writer
posted: 22 August 2007 09:17 am ET

Guys with bulldog-like faces have been chick magnets throughout human evolutionary history.

A recent study of the skulls of human ancestors and modern humans finds that women, and thereby, evolution, selected for males with relatively short upper faces. The region between the brow and the upper-lip is scrunched proportionately to the overall size of their heads.

Among the men who fit the bill: Will Smith and Brad Pitt.

You can read the rest here.

Natawa na lang ako sa study na ito. Kaya mga boys, magunahan na kayong magmukhang cavemen! Hehehe! Kidding!

It's time for an upgrade!

Ang tagal ko rin atang di nakapag-post. Hahaha! Ang ganda ng title ng entry ko!

  • Folklorama 2007

    Nakapunta kami sa Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Philippines (2 pavilions), at Japan.
    Pinakacool = Brazil
    Pinakamasarap ang pagkain = Spain (Masarap ang luto ng kung sino man ang nagprepare
    Pinakamaganda = Philippines (Seryoso! Walang bias! Iba yung approach nila.)
    Pinakaenergetic = Mexico

    Pero lahat nakakaenjoy! Masaya! Next year uli!

  • UM-Sigaw's Halo-halo Special

    Busy, busy, busy! Parang hindi nauubos ang mga dapat gawin. Hindi ko pa napapaprint ang posters. Er, wala pang final na poster design. Wala pa ring funds. Pero keri pa rin! Tuloy lang ang trabaho! Aja!

  • Moving out

    Nakakapagod. Ang sakit ng arms ko sa kakapintura. Kaya rin busy-busy dahil nga marami-rami rin ang inaasikaso kasabay ng paglilipat (concert!).

    Yes! May raket tomorrow. Haha! It should've started today but I felt sick this morning. I don't know why. Must have been due to my abnormal sleeping pattern. Boo.

    My eyes are hurting but I'm still in front of my laptop most of the time. Walang magawa . Sana nag-school na lang ako hanggang August. Ayos lang kahit walang bakasyon kesa naman hindi productive. (Having a job is really not my priority no? Hahaha!)

    Better sleep now. I have to wake up at 4.

    Something that will make your eyes roll

    The former transportation commissioner of Minnesota said that most states are having problems in building safe bridges because of the lack of funding.


    What the F?

    It's the United States! The MOST powerful country! How can they not have funds for building safe, efficient bridges when they have money for war?

    This is scary. Seriously. If the US does not have funds to build safe infrastractures, how much more those poor, developing nations? Tsk, tsk.

    "Miskol" ang nanalong salita ng taon sa Sawikaan 2007. Si Adrian Remodo, propesor sa Ateneo de Naga, and nagnominate at nagpresent ng salitang ito. Ang Miskol ay nanggaling sa "Missed Call" na usong-uso sa mga Pinoy na gustong mangamusta pero nagtitipid.

    Nakanood ako ng Sawikaan noong 2005. Ang nanalong salita noon ay Huweteng. Na-miss ko tuloy yung mga pinupuntahan naming mga presentasyon sa klase ni Mam Gaying. Na-miss ko yung Bulwagang Rizal. Na-miss ko UP.

    Naalala ko pa yung bilin na Mam Gaying sa akin na wag ko daw kakalimutan ang mga tinuro nya at gawin ko daw proud ang UP. :( Sad.

    Warhol: Larger than Life at the WAG

    Waaah! THIS IS EXCITING!!! And I thought they wouldn't have a MAJOR exhibition this year!


    October 5, 2007 to January 6, 2008

    Andy Warhol will literally be making the WAG POP this Fall in our season's feature exhibition, Warhol: Larger than Life.

    Credited as one of the major artistic innovators of the 20th century, Warhol's fame spread well beyond painting and printmaking. Filmmaker, sculptor, author, collector, publisher, provocateur, music producer, celebrity—Warhol understood and negotiated the ride of fame, a sophisticated arbiter and manipulator of popular culture and fashion.

    Warhol: Larger than Life examines the entirety of the artist's career. Its Larger than Life focus considers three main issues: the elevation of everyday subject matter to the sphere of "fine art," the celebration of celebrities and their larger than life existences, and finally, the creation of Andy Warhol—his metamorphosis from Andrew Warhola, a sickly young boy from a poor neighbourhood in depression-era Pittsburgh to the New York. trendsetter. Of interest to Canadian audiences, the exhibition also explores Warhol's contact with this country, be it in terms of events, exhibitions, celebrities, or controversy.
