can you spot a liar?

According to Blogthings, I definitely can!

You Can Definitely Spot a Liar

Maybe you have good instincts. Or maybe you just have a lot of experience with liars.

Either way, it's pretty hard for someone to pull a fast one on you. You're like a human lie detector.

Hmm.. maybe this is just because I'm a paranoid freak, or have become jaded over time. Either way, one thing's for sure - I can definitely smell a fake or a wannabe a mile away.

And that first time we met? If I wasn't being chatty, I was sizing you up.

song of the week: back to the 101

Photo: Courtesy of colour_it_in

Albert Hammond, Jr. is the rhythm and sometimes lead guitarist for indie rock band, The Strokes. He is also a solo musician, just having released two albums: Yours to Keep in 2006 and ¿Como Te Llama? this year.

Plus, he's currently dating "the fashion industry's next supermodel," Agyness Deyn. Music and fashion - how cliché.

So anyway, Back to the 101 is from his first album, Yours to Keep.

Though it took me by surprise,
One by one I realized,
There was something I could do

"I lost my way.",
That's what she said,
Back to the 101,
If we don't know,
Somewhere to go,
Back to the 101,

I never said to feel relaxed,
I never said to love me back,
What was I next to you?

In my mind it all goes back,
Lost control of what I had,
All my thoughts left one by one,

"I lost my way."
That's what she said,
Back to the 101,
Back to the one,
I never won,
Back to the 101,

I count the one,
I count the one,
I count the one oh one,

I know (I count the one),
I lost (I count the one),
My way (I count the one oh one),

This time (I count the one),
We'll find (I count the one),
A place (I count the one oh one),

I know (I count the one),
I lost (I count the one),
My way (I count the one oh one),

This time (I count the one),
We'll find (I count the one),
A place (I count the one oh one).

back when he was little..

I was over at Allan's place some weekends ago when I discovered his toddler pictures. It really is true, he did look like a girl when he was little. See for yourself! lol

He's the one in yellow. The boy beside him is his cousin, Alvin.

The poor thing couldn't hold his pee anymore hahaha

On his cousin's shoulders (I forgot the name). And what do you know, he has that exact same shirt, even now that he's about 10 times bigger! Vintage shades from his mom.

He once told me that when he was little, his mom's friends often mistake him for a girl. I didn't really believe him until I saw these pics. lol

What can I say? I've always had a thing for boys who look like girls. :D

Anyway, let's take a short break for a dNeero survey.

Stay tuned for more dNeero conversations!

the dark knight drinking game

Photo: Courtesy of PJ Lighthouse

Inspired by Tom Coffee's post, I decided to make another version of the drinking game, but this time, using the movie hailed as the best comic book adaptation, EVER.

So, here are the rules: When The Dark Knight DVD is released, immediately get a copy and stock up on your favorite alcoholic drink. When you get back to your home/apartment, prepare those drinks beside you, pop in that DVD, sit on the couch, and then...

Take one shot for each time a Batman-clad character appears onscreen.

Take one shot for each instance The Joker licks his lips. Must be that "hypo-allergenic" lipstick, dammit.

Take one shot for each time Harvey Dent tosses a coin. Take another shot when the coin lands heads up.

Take one shot for each person killed. Take another shot if there more than 5 people killed at the same time.

Take one shot for each time Batman speaks in that annoying voice. Didn't Batman ever learn any manners? When in the movies, no loud whispering, please!

Take one shot for each time something gets blown up, explodes, or crashes down. Because that's what a superhero flick is for, right?

Take one shot for each time Rachel Dawes stares at you with those blank, vacant eyes. Blessed be to Nolan for finally killing her off.

When the movie ends, you could already be on the floor, incoherent and cross-eyed, or you could be in your garage, tinkering with your car to see if a Batpod could possibly be lodged somewhere within it.

Let me know how you turn out.

Disclaimer: The government recommends drinking moderately. So whatever happens to you after the movie, I didn't have anything to do with it.

password fatigue

Image: Courtesy of vera on the verge

In the May 2008 issue of Reader's Digest, the Word of the Year committee from Macquarie Dictionary added password fatigue in its roster of new words.

In Word Spy, password fatigue is defined as "mental exhaustion and frustration caused by having to remember a large number of passwords."

Fortunately for me, my other phone, the ancient, trusty Nokia 6260, has an application requiring a password to access it. I use this app to store my usernames and passwords for various online accounts, ranging from the workplace passwords to Facebook accounts.

But then, I got to thinking: What if I lose this phone? I know this is a very old phone, and I doubt some loser would try to steal it, but ever since that iPod incident, I can't be so sure.

So what I do now to manage my myriad passwords is store all my usernames and passwords for all the online accounts I have, save it in a passworded-document, and attach this document in my Google mail. I then save this e-mail as a Draft (I don't send it to anybody, of course).

This way, I only need to remember two passwords: one for the Google mail, and one to open the document I stored in the Drafts section in my Google mail.

How about you? How do you manage password fatigue?
