Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Today started off great! The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer is phenomenal. I am too excited for the next movie now.

It seems they haven’t left out too many scenes, and I hope they execute everything right. I’m might excited for the 7 potters scene although the upcoming death of two characters in that scene really makes me tear up. Well, the whole concept of the first part of the end of an epic story makes me tear up.

On other things, there’s something that is bothering me deeply, but of course I cannot act on it, not anymore. So now all I can do is pray. But if you’re reading this, I just want you to know that I’m still here. I’m always here.

Random blurts of emotion

I really amaze myself sometimes with how I can update my blog when all I do all day is sit on the bed and read books or go on tumblr.

I think I’ve mentioned it in one of my posts before, that I’ve been quite anti-social. I’m still trying to decide whether I’m the Socially Lazy Sloth or the Socially Awkward Penguin. I like penguins a lot though, so maybe I’ll stick to the latter.

I have this talent of losing friends because of how excessively clingy I am and I really hate it but I can’t avoid it. Most especially now when I am so far away from them that whenever I get to talk to them I spew out incoherent statements and sometimes come out as desperate for attention. At least I think I do.

Tumblr and Memes

Lately, I’ve been spending my time on Tumblr. It is much more addicting than Facebook is. Although I use my Tumblr to blog at times, I often use to express random spasms of emotion and my obsessions (such as Harry Potter, A Very Potter Musical, and – as of late – Hunger Games).

I’ve stumbled upon rather interesting time consumers while “resting”, and I decided to make a blog on my top ten favorite memes:

10.  Sassy Gay Friend

Sassy Gay Friend started as a series of Youtube videos that involved a sassy gay friend giving advice to Shakespearean characters (and Eve) about to take their lives. This eventually was turned into a meme that has its own Tumblr page.


9. Cannot Unsee (and its variants)

Cannot unsee is basically a meme that points out obvious similarities between two objects and/or people that would not be seen if they were not juxtaposed. Two of the websites I frequent are cannotunsee.net and totallylookslike.com (owned by the cheezburger network)

8. Your Argument is Invalid

The phrase “your argument is invalid” has been used in real life as a retort during debates when there are fallacious claims in one’s argument. In the interwebs, it is applied usually to odd or unusual images that are posted online. I actually find it difficult to explain, but maybe the pictures can explain themselves:

7. High Expectations Asian Father

I know this sounds racist, but it is just so funny. It even has its own tumblr page (which I follow, of course).

6. Haters Gonna Hate

This is simply a picture of a person in a very confident pose with the words “haters gonna hate”. I look at those pictures to constantly remind myself that, indeed, haters gonna hate.


(I had to include this because Emma is gorgeous. Agree? Y/Y?)

Off-shoots:

5. Sad Keanu

Sad Keanu was the product of a picture of Keanu Reeves eating alone on a bench looking glum and very creative people who began photoshopping him into different scenarios. There is a collection of picture over at tumblr.

4. LOLCats

The internet is made of two things: Cats and GIRLs (Guys in real life). I think the latter can be argued, but the former is an agreed on fact. The internet is made of cats. Visit here for more.

3. Time of the Month Tiger

This is a new favorite of mine but I think it has really proved its potential to be funny not only for girls who know how horrible it is to experience that time of the month but for guys who have female friends. The tumblr can be viewed here. Warning, it verges on TMI.

2.  LeoStrut

This was inspired by one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s scenes in Inception where he struts. His face in the pose makes this a WIN.

1. GraphJam

Finally, GraphJam. It puts concepts usually references of pop culture into graphs. It’s as simple as that. I know it’s really nerdy/geeky but I think people who know me well enough know I am nerdy and geeky.

More can be viewed at GraphJam.com

But of course, the most amazing meme has got to be THIS. It is simply CLASSIC, and never fails to make me smile.

And yes, I have this much free time.

Social Network Hiatus

I realized how addicted to twitter and facebook I have been. Even if I have already deactivated my facebook account, I find myself typing “facebook.com” on the url box. Sometimes I end up on the homepage without realizing what happened. Is this facebook withdrawal? Well, I managed to do one month the last time, so I think I can try for longer.

The same goes for twitter. Sadly there’s no deactivate function for twitter, so I just try to avoid it – just in case I actually wanted to return. I’m close to uninstalling my TweetDeck too. Don’t ask me why. I just feel so anti-social lately. I’ve been invisibile on YM for a while as well.

Meh. Well I don’t know if this is just a phase, but I’m trying to look at the bright side of things. I could focus on writing full sentences and paragraphs like while I blog, and I will be forced to participate in activities that don’t involve my laptop and an internet connection.

I’d like to see how this goes.

Harry Potter and the gift of site.

I haven’t updated for a week. It was a very busy week for me, and I’m happy now that I’ve been able to complete two missions within this week! First is the Harry Potter Re-read and Re-watch mission. I’ve finally watched and read all the books and movies (currently out). I now have mixed emotions towards the next Harry Potter movies. I’m sad because my childhood is coming to a close, but i’m so excited, it’s probably the first time I wished I could get my hands on a bootleg copy of the movies.

I’m not happy with how the last movies have been, especially Order of the Phoenix, but if David Yates does book 7 right, I will forgive his mistakes. (Haha

The other mission was the website Henry, Jonathan, Kath, Justin, and Tam were working on for the BERday babies. I was very much overwhelmed by the responses of my beloved friends. I’m happy that they loved it!!!

Here’s the link : http://dormersoftheoc.x10.bz

Anyway, I now have something to preoccupy me after those two missions are done, but  I think this mission will be taking much more of my time. Yay!

Sugar high and blogging

I haven’t had any sleep because I’m so excited for what will happen today. A month long worth of work will finally be culminated hopefully later! Right now I’m just high on sugar and I’m really hyper!

Anyway, after this project, I plan to go on a semi-hiatus from the internet. I plan on not touching any social networking site and just update this blog so that I get my fix of virtual ranting. It’s almost winter so it would be like hibernating. It would be nice to be away from everything for longer than  2 weeks. I haven’t decided on YM yet, though. Bahala na. Haha

Anyway, today is my good, great friend Kinah Silverio’s birthday. Yay! We’re the same age! Finally!! I don’t feel old anymore 🙂 I miss you kins. Mwah!
