One of the biggest downsides of being in Saudi Arabia is that there are no updated Cinemas in the area. There is one cinema here that is walking distance from my house, but it shows really old movies. It really frustrates me since I won’t be watching the Harry Potter movie until December 2, which is around two weeks from the official release date.

I have decided not to go on Tumblr before I watch it. I won’t want to spoil myself. My mom told me to download a bad torrent copy of it but it won’t be the same. I’m so annoyed. But what annoyed me more is that my mom called me a brat when I explained to her that I’m a big fan. I honestly tried my best to take it well. Being a brat would mean me not talking to my parents until they can either let me go back to the Philippines early or drive me to Bahrain as soon as we can.

I was merely explaining why (1) I won’t download the ugly version from torrent – as she told me to do in the mean time and (2) why I said I would not go online to the sites I regularly go to for two weeks.

Oh, if only I could drive myself to Bahrain. Maybe I can wear a wig and a fake mustache so I can actually do that.

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.
