I wish I knew about this before I agreed with that contract. You know what I mean right? That contract that you can't cancel for two years? And if you do, you pay a significant amount becuase its a penalty.. And I just purchased that 5 months ago. Talk about getting disappointed. I could have been paying a lot less for my connection right now. I could have spent the money that I would have saved on some new shoes or something. Anyway, I'm writing about Charter now because I'm hoping people won't make the same mistake I did or regret that you didn't find a better deal sooner.
Charter High-Speed® Internet only cost $19.99 a month for 6 months. You read that right..! I could have also got that 3 for 1 payment thing like Verizon FIOS and Optimum Online because Charter also offers that. You get Charter Digital Home™, High-Speed Internet, and Charter Telephone® at $99.97/mo. for 12 months. Now that's a deal..! But there's a catch. The catch is, you can win 1 of 30 laptops when you purchase one of their deals. Well, its actually a catch for us, the costumers. That's right! On their Charter Laptop-a-Day Giveaway, 30 HP Compaq Presario C770US Laptops are up for grabs. And did I mention that after you purchase you will automatically be given a FREE Shell gift card..How's that for a catch?
The first winner will be announced on September 1st, with one winner a day for the rest of the month. So what are you waiting for..? If you're still using a connection that doesn't do your PC justice, then trying out Charter is the way to go.
I don't know if this is what Manny really needs. A fight with Oscar who is taller and bigger and has about a 5"-6" reach advantage. Even though Oscar is older and is towards the end of his career, he is not a knock out waiting to happen, not even close. Oscar fought some of the hardest hitting fighters in world. Oscar went toe to toe with Felix Trinidad and Shane Mosley and he didn't even get seriously hurt. Manny’s power won’t be the same at 147 as it was at 135. Sure, Manny has his advantages like his younger age and Oscar even admitted that Manny is faster than him but I think Oscar is a wily veteran.
I'm still looking forward to a good fight. I'm still picking Manny to win but this fight will probably be one of the toughest test. Manny deserves credit for taking on the challenge that Oscar would not and that is "ducking" WBA welterweight champion Antonio Margarito. Manny has so many physical disadvantages, but he took the fight regardless. Did Manny take this fight because of "Chachingggg..?" I don't know. Maybe...
Oscar on the other hand said that his competitive juices was flowing and made him decide to try to make the bout because “When people started saying, "Manny can beat you," and "Manny can knock you out," and especially when Freddie Roach started saying "Oscar can’t pull the trigger," or "Manny Pacquiao, the fighter I train, can beat you, it started to become a challenge to me,” De La Hoya said. “Now, it’s very personal, especially when Manny Pacquiao beat all the legendary Mexican fighters from Mexico. To me, it’s a challenge.."
"People are talking that Manny Pacquiao can beat me. Well, we’ll see Dec. 6.”
We'll see Oscar...
I can't really give a "look" to a woman because of two things: first, I'm not good looking and second, I'm not good looking. If I do give a woman a look, I'm sure it will come out creepy or weird or just plain "eeewww.." And women will probably just laugh at me. If I were a Brad Pitt or a Tom Cruise, then giving a "look" would make the ladies squeal and faint instead of shriek and laugh. That being said, I do have another side of me that can probably make women go "aawwwwwwww....how cute". I'll just show them my cute face like this...
Ooops! wrong photo..., I meant like this...
Cute huh..?! And when the ladies say that "aaaawwwwww.....", then that means I have their attention. And so they would look at me with a BIG SMILE with their eyes grown wide. So, there's nothing left to do but give a big smile back to them..like this..
After I've done and accomplished those..I'm also pretty sure that the ladies would be all over me. They will be offering me drinks and will be talking to me. I'm sure they will be dancing with me too.. like this..
Dancing with someone is the most non-verbal and non-obvious flirting you can do. But if you want to try your verbal flirting skills, you should first try it out at Ultimate Flirting Championship which is a really fun game and it is created by Extreme Style by VO5.
In the filming of World War Two picture "Valkyrie" in Berlin last year, twelve movie extras were injured on August 19, 2007. A side panel of a period German army truck burst open as it drove around a corner in central Berlin. They suffered broken bones, cuts and bruises and are now seeking damages from Tom Cruise and his production company. How much are they asking for..? $11 million...Yaiks..!
A lawyer for the extras told Reuters Television on Tuesday that witness statements indicated the truck's side panel had not been properly secured.
"Valkyrie" by the way is named after the codename for a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler concocted by senior German military officers during World War Two. Cruise plays ringleader Claus von Stauffenberg.
This is probably why the film's original release date was postponed to December 26 from July 4 this year. Probably not a good movie to watch for the holidays. But who knows, If its a really good movie, it won't matter when the movie is released.
Chef Tafari Campbell from Maryland created this scrumptious and delicious recipe. Just seeing a photo of it makes me hungry. The dish that I think is the best and voted for is called Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots.
In the site, www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com, There were a number of chefs from different parts of the country in which they had a cook off. They had to be creative becuase they had to cook using some mystery ingredients like for example Southwest Airline Peanuts or select brews from Michelob Brewing Co. And then it was narrowed down to five chefs and then we get to vote which one we think is the best. Actually I had a hard time deciding which one to vote for because everything just looked so good. There's Colorado Striped Bass Panzanella by Chef Paul Anders from Colorado, which I think is a really close second. There's also Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet by Chef Brian Landry from Louisiana. Of all the foods, I love sea foods the best. I have previously posted about my favorite food and mentioned that I would rather eat seafood than anything else. The only thing I would change about all of these recipes is that I would add more seafood. I would add lobster tails, jumbo shrimps, scallops and etc. It would probably compromise the taste because of overloaded seafood meat, that's maybe why I'm not a chef because I would just stuff my face with all of the seafood meat that I can get.
Visit the site and vote for your favorite recipe or you download the recipes and cook it yourself and taste how good it is. I've only tried one of these recipes but I kind of screwed it up. I'm not exactly a chef because the only thing I know how to cook is fried stuff..hehehe..! Even when I screwed up the recipe that I tried, it was still good enough...how much more if it was actually cooked and made well. But of course, none of the food you cook will taste great if its not made with fresh ingredients. So stop by your local market and get the freshest produce or seafood available.
Here's the recipe.

I love what makes us Filipinos Unique..=)
One of the worst one-liners we have all heard is.. "You know what looks good on me..? YOU..!" Yaiks..!! Talk about one of the worst pick-up lines ever. It makes me cringe when ever I hear that..and it's hard to imagine someone saying that line now a days but believe it or not, someone said that to a really gorgeous woman in a bar that we went to a few months back. Well, the guy was obviously drunk but still, being drunk is no excuse to saying that. The only Victory Hair he'll get is if that lady beat the crap out of him and started slapping him and pulling his hair. He would be getting a LOSER'S HAIR for that matter. I can't imagine myself saying that really lame line..not even if someone paid me..!
To that guy who said that or to some people who needs some practice on those one-liners and to those who want to get a Victory Hair, check out this game created by Extreme Style by VO5 called the Ultimate Flirting Championship. Like I've said in my previous post, you play with actual people. You get some real reactions. I have never laughed so hard when playing a game. When you read the lines that people will say in that game, I'm sure you'll be laughing and saying "Oh my god!" at the same time. But that's OK, people can't see you or see the person saying those lines..so it's all good..just pure fun.
Meet Leryn Franco.
This Olympian is not only a Javelin thrower, but also a hottie. She is a sexy catwalk and photographic model. Although she didn't fair too well in the Olympics, she definitely got some attention. The first time I saw her was in the opening ceremony in Beijing. I thought, "Ooh, who was that..? She's gorgeous.." Well, now I know that I wasn't the only one who noticed her but so did thousands of people who saw her beauty....Hot or not? You be the judge...
The guy is just one that simply puts you in awe. He just game us all something to cheer about whether you're from the United States or not. Getting 8 gold medals in one Olympics is just mind boggling.
There are athletes who will never qualify to be an Olympian. There are Olympians who will never win a medal. There are Olympian medal winners who has never won a gold medal. There are countries who have never won a gold medal. There are Olympic champions. There are Olympic champions who have won multi gold medals..But there is one Olympic champion who has won 14 total gold medals. There is only one Olympic champion who has won 8 gold medals in the same Olympics.
That right there, just puts everything in perspective on how good this guy is and what he has achieved. One that will definitely stand the test of time.
I really didn't know if this one liner would work because its from a movie that caused some controversy but hey, its just the line. So, I tried this line on a game that I have played before..its called Ultimate Flirting Championship. This game was created by Extreme Style by VO5, and I have to tell you, its a pretty creative game and pretty creative idea. If you haven't played this game, you should. This is so much fun because you get to play or FLIRT with actual people. So I tried this line, "I wish I knew how to quit you..." And believe it or not this one liner is a good one. I got some good reactions and responses from it. Do you know what this line is from..? I'll just keep you guessing.
If this line doesn't get you a Victory Hair, I don't know what will..but keep in mind, it only works if you use it in the right way, you can't just blurt it out and expect a lady or a man to be "googoogaagaa" on you..
Play the Ultimate Flirting Championship and see what kind of responses you get. Try out your one liners or famous lines from a movie. If you get a compliment, I'm sure you'll be smiling all day. If it doesn't, then you'll know what not to say in front of real people..right? This game is definitely fun. You never know what that other person will say.
I first heard this song in a Broadway show in New York called Aida. The lyrics is sad. What the song is about is kind of cruel if something like that could happen to some people or somebody but I like it..maybe because I can relate to it. What I have experienced didn't exactly happen like the lyrics in the song but it surely felt that way..like time was cut much too short. It felt like someone up there was being cruel and we were just part of his experiment or it was supposed to happen because we were being tested and what happened, happened for a reason and it was supposed to make me, her or us stronger...but you realy can't help but wonder...Why..?
The particular lines that strike me the most is in bold letters.
Written in the Stars
Composed by: Elton John and Tim Rice
I am here to tell you we can never meet again
Simple really, isn't it, a word or two and then
A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when
You think of me or speak of me or wonder what befell
The someone you once loved so long ago so well
Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by
You don't have to ask me and I need not reply
Every moment of my life from now until I die
I will think or dream of you and fail to understand
How a perfect love can be confounded out of hand
Is it written in the stars
Are we paying for some crime
Is that all that we are good for
Just a stretch of mortal time
Is this God's experiment
In which we have no say
In which we're given paradise
But only for a day
Nothing can be altered, there is nothing to decide
No escape, no change of heart, no anyplace to hide
You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned
What it is to be in love and have that love returned
I definitely think that teachers, especially in the public schools, are underpaid. I'm not a teacher but I feel that they deserve much more. Considering what they have to put up with in public schools, they not only teach but they are also like the second parents. I have a very high respect for teachers who do actually teach and care about students. However, not all teachers are heroes. Some of them don't really care. Unfortunately, I had the displeasure of being a part of a class who is being "taught" by really horrible teachers.
Without teachers, I don't know where we would all be. That's why I consider teachers one of our modern day heroes. They deserve more..both in respect and salary.
I don't really know you..
You don't really know me
I have never even met you
but for a moment,
you made me smile..
For a moment,
you made me think
how happy my life would be
if I had you..
I just read something from you
I know emails may not mean much to you
but for me,
you filled my heart with emotions
even though it was just for a moment..
for that moment,
you made me happy..

After losing to the Angels again today with the score of 3-2, the Yankees find themselves 8 games behind the division leaders Tampa Bay Rays and 4 games behind second place Boston Red Sox.
Here's my question, why did they trade Kyle Farnsworth..?? They were on such a roll right after the All Star break. The Bullpen was pitching lights out. They were winning. But they traded one of their good closers for another catcher Ivan Rodriguez for Farnsworth. Molina was doing a great job catching for the Yanks, so why get another one? Now the Yanks' bullpen has been shaky to say the least. They lost to the Angels on a tied game in the 9th inning. Who lost the game? the bullpen. That's the exact same thing that happened the previous game against the same team. The bullpen just fell apart. It was a close game until the bullpen gave up 8 runs... 8 RUNS in the 8th inning....sigh.....enough rambling about the Yanks.
They might not make it to the playoffs....
“Eat what you want and lose weight!”
“Lose thirty pounds in thirty days!”
“Finally, a diet that really works!”
“Lose one jean size every seven days!”
“Top three fat burners revealed”
“Ten minutes to a tighter tummy!”
Unfortunately, those statements are untrue. The truth is, if a person wants to lose weight, he/she needs to work out more than what is advertised.
A 30 minute of walk doesn't mean you burned the calories of the brownie that you ate. People have these myth that if they walk for 30 minutes, they burned most of the calories that they gained when they ate something that is fattening. Everybody wishes that all of those statements that you read above is that simple to accomplish.
My advice is, make time to work out. If you have time to surf through the Internet, watch TV or talk on the phone, chances are you can have time to work out. If you are not an active person or play sports for example, then you need to work out to get your metabolism going. Yes, it means you have to sacrifice some of your TV staring and your mouse-clicking to make changes in your body. Because at this day and industrial age, everything has been made to make our lives simpler. Well, here is the effect of that..where people not doing enough naturally physically to maintain a good health..and that's why you need to make time to work out.
From the start, China was blazing. They came out with the enthusiasm and fire and excitement that made the first and second quarter of the ball game really interesting and fun to watch but towards the second half, the United States was just too much for China. Too much talent on the floor and the US clamped down on defense.
In the first half of the game, China was hitting a lot of their three point shots but the second half was almost the complete opposite. Great effort for China, but unfortunately their effort was well short of even making it close towards the end of the game. Dwane Wade led the United States with 19 points followed by LeBron James with 18. Up next for the USA is Angola....Hhhmmmmmm...anyone smelling an upset..?
First game on the men's basketball will be the USA against the host country of the Summer Olympics, China. This should be interesting. Chinese are very big basketball fans. They love their center superstar Yao Ming. In my opinion, this game would be like being in a gold medal game and a good "measuring stick" so to speak, for the Chinese National Team. For the Americans, on the other hand, the pressure is on to not lose the first game in their so called "Road to Redemption" in the Olympics.
What would it mean if the United States loses to China? It would definitely be a big boost of confidence for not only the Chinese team but for the entire country. Although it would only be the first game for the US, if they lost, it would be a real blow to their confidence coming into the Olympics. It would a game that they would love to take back and play it again...but of course this is just all speculation...I can't wait for this game.
The Mac man dies at age of 50 due to a condition called sarcoidosis. I just heard the news on TV.. and I'm shocked..! I'm a Bernie Mac fan. Incase you don't know him, he was the black guy in the movie Transformers. He was also in Oceans 11,12,13 and Charlies Angels just to name a few. But he is best known for his ability to make people laugh. A great comedian....I thought he was recovering from that illness since it was reported on Friday.....but now he's dead...Wow...I'm just stunned....RIP Mr. Mac...
My condolence to the Mac Family...
Make god laugh up there will yah...
For some reason I feel like crap today. I feel like not doing anything. I don't feel like going to work. I don't feel like talking to anyone. Maybe I'm currently depressed..If I am depressed, I don't really know why. Maybe I really am depressed. Last night I was watching Everybody Loves Raymond, but never laughed, didn't even smile....I usually laugh, not just laugh but laugh out loud even though the shows are reruns. So there really is something bothering me..
My life is full of disappointments. I don't usually write personal stuff online because guys/men don't really write about how they feel but I don't know...I just have this urge to get these "crap" inside me, out...
Also last night, a few barkadas (meaning good friends) from home sent me text messages, saying that they are going to have a get together and just hang out..maybe have a couple of drinks..I miss those simple things. How I wish I was there. Their text is probably what made me cheer up and smile a little bit. Here's my roaming number..09204401711..send me a text, hit me up or whatever..Just want to have someone to talk to..
Maybe life here is getting to me..I wanna go home..!
Thanks social spark for giving me the opportunity to earn some extra income. But that's not the reason why I made this post. I made this post to thank social spark because I met someone here. Someone who I like talking to. Someone who I'm looking forward to when I open the emails...I'm actually more thankful now that I signed up. Who ever that someone is, thanks for your emails and for your friendship....
Nothing is more popular now a days than online gaming. Why would like to play by yourself if you can play against people around the world? That's definitely more exciting and much more challenging than playing your 8 year old little brother or cousin. For all of you football fans around the world, or soccer fans here in America, this is what you want. If you're a gaming fan too, The football superstars Academy is now open for registration. This game is designed by people who love football/soccer for people who love football/soccer.
I wasn't really a football or soccer fan until I played a video game of it..because playing the actual game is just too much for me. I would love to be a an International Football Star but chances of that happening is next to none. However, in this upcoming virtual game, I think I can be...Even though its just on a video game.
By downloading the game later this year, you can explore the football/soccer game for free. Of course the game wouldn't be fun if you, the gamer, didn't know what to do or how to play it. So, they have provided us with full training instructions. You can't claim that you are the best if you play with just people around you right? So get in the game, and get hooked.
Almost everyone who has watched the movie said it was great. Heath Ledger did such a great Joker that people loved to hate him and felt pity for him at the same time. Batman on the other hand, was talking like he had sore throat. Why is that?? Asked my sister who watched The Dark Knight a few days ago. My cousin, who I talked to on our recent family reunion said, "I liked the movie but the way Batman talked was annoying..I kind of ruined it..".
I haven't seen the movie yet so I can't comment on what they said but based on the previous Batman movie, Batman Begins, I have already noticed that voice thing. I don't know, maybe its worse in this new movie...
