Just found an interesting article about Graphology, a study of people’s handwriting. Probably it might sound as hokey as Zodiac reading, but I find this one somewhat accurate, at least to me. I’ve also observed my friends’ handwriting and compare it, and so far it’s proven believable, although not 100% accurate. If you want to see what your handwriting says about your personality, read the article here. 🙂
Well, one of my other blogs is malfunctioning. I dedicated that blog for news in my phone cards collection, but since that hobby is put on hold, that blog has been on temporary abandonment. Well, it’s not that I wasn’t trying to update that blog at all, but that blog has been having a lot of problem for few months. I even complained about it on this blog. So few weeks ago I noticed that it was fixed, but somehow my blog isn’t there anymore. Whenever I try to go to my blog (phonecardscollector.outblogger.com), it directs me to the homepage of the blog (outblogger.com). The funny thing is that I can still login and see all my posts, but when I visit the site, it just doesn’t seem to exist.
So, I decided to abandon that blog for good. I was just cleaning up all the links that I made to that blog, and that included the one from my webpage. Well, since I logged into my geocities, I decided to update that page, and I even added 2 pages! Now, I’m in a dilemma whether if I’m going to make a new blog on wordpress to replace that blog. But the thing is I’ve used phonecardscollector domain on wordpress on this blog. 😕 I could register a new blog (maybe PeterIsTVaddict.wordpress.com) and export all the content of this blog to the new blog, and import the content of that broken blog to this blog. Hmm, but that’s just too much work, and I’m lazy 😆
So anyway, I’m so glad with the response that I’ve been getting regarding the Hulu Award. I’m so honored to be one of the panelists and I couldn’t be happier with all the comments you left to help me decide on the nominees. I promise, I’ll post the new categories to be judged every week, so you can also give your opinion on which shows deserve the award.
So this week, I had a pile of things to do at work, 20 pages of draft due this week, and finals are coming closer, making me hardly have time to breathe. Thank goodness that there’s nothing much on TV (no more The Mole and I survived Japanese show), that’s an extra 2 hours for me to do something else. But I can’t wait until this weekend, where I can catch up with everything I miss (on TV of course), and next week I’ll have a week off from one of my job because my boss is going out of town. Yay!
So, I’ve been planning to take a few weeks off from work in the end of summer (after this quarter is over), to take a vacation somewhere. I’ll get into that more next week, when I have more time to blog 😉 I don’t even have time to moderate the comments, I’ll do that next week too. Until then, cya.
Well, technically it has started few hours ago, but since I just finished watching the ceremony, it’s officially started now for me 😛 I missed the first 1.5 hour (so I missed the ancient China part and many beautiful chinese girls dancing 😦 ). Anyway, from the portion that I saw, the ceremony was breath-takingly superb. They really take full advantage of the stadium (that’s specially designed for this event), the lightning, the customs, and the performers to make a great show.
Just a side note, from the number of fireworks used in the ceremony, it’s no wonder that the city is full of smog. I mean seriously, fireworks are bad for atmosphere and toxic to living being. And when used excessively, the danger multiples. Yes, I know they are pretty and spectacular, but they are a threat to the environment. 🙄 I’m not an environmental activist, but I am aware and have some knowledge about what is bad for our planet.
Okay, I’ll rest my case about fireworks now. So back to the topic: the Olympic Games 2008 has officially started! 🙂 Let the games begin and may the best players win! 😀
Well, not actually breaking away (I still love watching tv). But I’m thinking that if my TV is broken beyond repair, maybe it’s time to throw it out and cut my cable bill. Thinking about calling my cable company and say I want out makes me grin so wide my cheek hurts. 😆 I’m thinking to just watch TV online, since I’m on broadband anyway (why waste the bandwith I pay, right?)
I’ve been watching online TV a couple of times, usually on the official network websites like abc.com and usanetwork.com. They have full episodes of the shows and the latest ones too – and thankfully my favorite shows are in both networks. But some of the tv websites just don’t even provide online videos, let alone a full episode. So what a man to do if he doesn’t have a tv and cable connection? Find another alternative 😛 Last night, I found one or two great websites that provide links to some shows (some new and some old), which is nice. If anyone interested, just let me know, I’ll be glad to share the links with you. 🙂
Well, as for now, I’m gonna watch yesterday’s Monk and Psych on usanetwork.com 😉
So, I just changed the tagline of my blog from “Peter’s Phone Cards Collection & General Blog” to just lines. [Edit note: I actually changed to just “Peter’s Blog,” but then when I previewed it, I realized that it’s the same as the title of the blog.]
The reason for that is pretty obvious, I don’t want to make this blog my phone card blog (I already have a blog for that), and currently I’m inactive in collecting. I really appreciate other phone cards collectors that visit this blog and leave their comments. I’m still interested in phone cards, but I’m not buying or swapping anymore, and I never intend to sell any of my collections. If you read my phone cards blog, other than being busy, that other blog host has some kind of problems. Sometimes it takes a while just to log in, sometimes I just couldn’t log in at all. So with minimal time that I have to blog, especially about phone cards, I never have a chance to write anything there for the last few weeks.
Anyway, so this blog have a new name. I hope you enjoy reading my blog 🙂
