I've been forgetting to post my responses as being tagged by Ate Jonah and Frances. Sorry guys, I've been pretty preoccupied by my computer's lack of space. Everyday that I can sit in front of my pc, I upload my pics to photobucket just to free some space so that I could defrag it. It really, really needs to be. Aside from that, my scratch disk is full so I couldn't resize or edit pics of my Europe vacation with my Adobe-- which means it will still take time for me to put it up here. (Darn.)

While my pics upload (rather too slow for my liking), I go to the fanlistings of which I am listed and update my info regarding this new blog URL. I also made a new folder just for the fanlisting icons on my photobucket and that means the URL of the pics become different thus I had to update my old blog as well. -_-'

I've still got other responsibilities at home and outside-- though I'm not complaining, really. It's good to have these distractions. It takes my mind off other seemingly disturbing thoughts of my worries. Anyway, I better end this post. Either my internet connection's going bonkers on me or my recent set of pics are done uploading in photobucket. Gotta go. Sorry again.

More Than Just Painkillers

mood: really?
listening to: Billy S. - Skye Sweetnam

Look at an article I found:
Aspirin, the common painkiller already proven effective in reducing the risk of heart disease, may also help lower skin cancer risk according to Australian researchers.

A study of 273 people at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research found that regularly taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin could increase protection against skin cancer and sunspots.

Lead researcher David Whiteman said there was a significant difference in people who used aspirin.

"We found that people who used aspirin or non-steroidal drugs regularly - and that is two or more times a week, for at least five years - had a 63 percent reduced risk of squamous cell cancers of the skin."

A smaller analysis found people who took aspirin eight or more times a week for at least a year had a 90 percent reduction in risk.

Aspirin was also found to decrease the number of sunspots.

Aspirin type drugs shut down an enzyme known as cyclo-oxygenase, which allows some types of skin cancer to develop.

Dr. Whiteman said while the trial offered hope for new strategies in the fight against skin cancer, it did not mean people should start buying aspirin and taking it on a daily basis.

"The way to prevent skin cancer ... is to avoid noonday sunlight, schedule your exposures to morning and afternoon, use hats and sunscreen and that's the way to prevent skin cancer."

Found it here.

That Crooked Smile Bella Loves

I've been pretty addicted to the novel Twilight by Stephenie Meyer since my uncle bought the book for me when I was staying in Switzerland. (I could've bought the book way before that but it's always out of stock in the bookstores around here.) I've been interested about it for so long so when I read it, it's certainly very invigorating for me. LOL I suppose just like any girl who loves a mysterious and gorgeous guy, I somehow find myself falling in love with Edward Cullen. That and the fact that he's err.. inhuman. You see, it's been years since I'm trying to find a vampire romance novel that doesn't include too much umm how do I say this.. sexuality.. the morbid-ness (is that the correct term? .. morbidity?) amongst other things. Pardon me; I couldn't explain it in a more simple and blunt way. Anyway, I'm also not fond of those kinds of novels with middle-aged characters. No offense about that, really. I just enjoy reading characters that are close to my age range and even if I am getting older too fast (I'm turning 20 in August), I don't think I'd lose that interest in reading teen novels-- not that Twilight is only for teens coz it's not. Many adults and children read and enjoy it too, which proves just how appealing it is.
[Though thinking about it, Vampire Knight does come close to the kind of vampire romance/angst story I've been wanting. (I'm also heavily drawn to Zero so.. hehe) But still...]
So aside from liking Twilight coz the characters are teens, there's romance, sarcasm here and there (absolutely love the humor), and that character you can't help but love (*coughEdwardcough*), it also amazed me how Bella Swan is a lot like me. I swear. When I was reading the book (it's on Bella's POV), it's like reading something I've experienced/did/said or would have thought/done/said (sans the vampire encounters of course). It feels so great that I get to read a novel with a female character who is so much like me coz that way, I know I'm not the only one around who's *ahem* different. The result? Now, I'm officially addicted to it.

Chamie stayed with me for 3 days and 2 nights (sleep-over) starting the day after I came back home to the Philippines. I appreciate it since I really need someone around because my depressive tendencies were starting to slowly eat me again. So when I told her about Twilight, it seems she's interested in it too-- but she refuses to read the book ["That's the Twilight book? It's so thick!"]. She prefers to watch the movie. In our country, it opens in January 2009. Great. We get to live in suspence. I'm so excited that I watch the trailer and the video below over and over and over and over and ["Oh stop."] over and over again. LOL

Here's the other video with the scenes from the set of Twilight and some random interviews from the cast. Enjoy. =3

Home Sweet Home
Saturday, May 10, 2008 @ 9:36 AM

I finally got home last May 8th. I'm so tired. It's been a bit of frustrating trip. I'll post more entries later about what happened during my 3 weeks of hiatus-- with photos. I just haven't uploaded all the pictures yet (I think there's around 2000+ in total and probably only around 30 that I'll put up here.) Then I'll have to edit them because of the size and lighting. So yeah. I'll try to sleep now. I haven't enough sleep for four days and I didn't sleep last night.. up to this morning. My poor eyes.

Laterz.

That's How You Know

listening to: That's How You Know - Amy Adams and Marlon Saunders



For some reason, this movie cracks me up. <3 Patrick Dempsey
"He knows this song too?"
"I've never heard this song."
"I don't dance. And I really don't sing."
XD
"What are you crazy? They're birds. They don't know where she lives."

How does she know you love her?
How does she know she's yours?

How does she know that you love her?

How do you show her you love her?

How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?
How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you love her?
How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?

It's not enough to take the one you love for granted
You must remind her, or she'll be inclined to say...
"How do I know he loves me?"
(How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you love her?)
"How do I know he's mine?"
(How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?)

Well does he leave a little note to tell you you are on his mind?
Send you yellow flowers when the sky is grey? Heyy!
He'll find a new way to show you, a little bit everyday
That's how you know, that's how you know!
He's your love...

You've got to show her you need her
Don't treat her like a mind reader
Each day do something to need her
To believe you love her

Everybody wants to live happily ever after
Everybody wants to know their true love is true...
How do you know he loves you?
(How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you need her?)
How do you know he's yours?
(How does she know that you really, really, truely-)

Well does he take you out dancin' just so he can hold you close?
Dedicate a song with words in
Just for you? Ohhh!

He'll find his own way to tell you
With the little things he'll do
That's how you know
That's how you know!

He's your love
He's your love...

That's how you know
(la la la la la la la la)
He loves you
(la la la la la la la la)
That's how you know
(la la la la la la la la)
It's true
(la la la la la)

Because he'll wear your favorite color
Just so he can match your eyes
Rent a private picnic
By the fires glow-oohh!

His heart will be yours forever
Something everyday will show
That's how you know
(That's how you know)
That's how you know
(That's how you know)
That's how you know!

He's your love...

That's how she knows that you love her
That's how you show her you love her

That's how you know...
That's how you know...
He's your love...
