Yahoo? Blogspot?

Is there something wrong with Yahoo site? I can't seem to connect to the said site. I also tried checking on my blogger site, I can't connect to it but I was able to log on to blogger and type this message. Weird.

Well I guess I just have to wate for it to "come back" again because our local subscriber here in the province that they've been encountering the same problem since 10 am this morning and they were informed that it had something to do with the quake in Taiwan. Funny because I was still using those sites 'till 1 pm today. Whatever.

I'll wait then.

My Mobile

Mom bought dad and I a mobile phone. Dad got a Sony Ericsson P990i and I have the P910i. If you click above (P990i) and below (P910i) image it will link you directly to GSMArena where you can find it's features. P990i is a 3G phone unlike P910i. I am happy with my new mobile phone.
I already downloaded some applications over the internet for my phone like Hand Day 2005, Mobipocket Reader and Blackberry. I had so much fun exploring the phone and personalizing it. There's so much more that I have to know about this unit. After installing the PC Suite in my computer I discovered more about the phone. I think it will take me a little while before I fully familiarize with this phone.

There are a lot of applications out there that I could install my P910i like screep capture, themes (I need theme editor so if you have one please send me one), and a lot more.

Well, that's for now. I'll go back in exploring the phone now.

Harriet Klausner

Here's an article that I'd like to share from Time Magazine by Lev Grossman:

Without the web, Harriet Klausner would be just an ordinary human being with an extraordinary talent. Instead she is one of the world's most prolific and influential book reviewers. At 54, Klausner, a former librarian from Georgia, has posted more book reviews on than any other user—12,896, as of this writing, almost twice as many as her nearest competitor. That's a book a day for 35 years.

Klausner isn't paid to do this. She's just, as she puts it, "a freaky kind of speed-reader." In elementary school, her teacher was shocked when Klausner handed in a 31⁄2-hour reading-comprehension test in less than an hour. Now she goes through four to six books a day. "It's incomprehensible to me that most people read only one book a week," she says. "I don't understand how anyone can read that slow."

Klausner is part of a quiet revolution in the way American taste gets made. The influence of newspaper and magazine critics is on the wane. People don't care to be lectured by professionals on what they should read or listen to or see. They're increasingly likely to pay attention to amateur online reviewers, bloggers and Amazon critics like Klausner. Online critics have a kind of just-plain-folks authenticity that the professionals just can't match. They're not fancy. They don't have an agenda. They just read for fun, the way you do. Publishers treat Klausner as a pro, sending her free books—50 a week—in hopes of getting her attention. Like any other good critic, Klausner has her share of enemies. "Harriet, please get a life," someone begged her on a message board, "and leave us poor Amazon customers alone."

Klausner is a bookworm, but she's no snob. She likes genre fiction: romance, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, horror. One of Klausner's lifetime goals—as yet unfulfilled—is to read every vampire book ever published. "I love vampires and werewolves and demons," she says. "Maybe I like being spooked." Maybe she's a little bit superhuman herself.

I'm Going Home

I'll be going home tomorrow. My flight is at 4:20 am via Cebu Pacific Air. Upon arriving the Davao international airport, I'll go straight to the bus terminal. I may be arriving Kidapawan at about 9:00 or 10:00 am. I'm so excited to go home. There's no place like home.

I've been unproductive for about a week now. There seems to be so much going on. The brewing war b/n humans and not-so-humans in the office, the confusion amongst the artists, the lack of feedback from my groupmates, the very painstakingly difficult job training I've been having, almost lack of sleep, emotional turmoil, weight issue, and so much more. I wanted to break free but I can't cause everythings must be dealt with - fast. I can't focus on one because everything needs so much attention. Waaaahhhhh. I'm running out of cash (I think nothing's left of me, hmmm). It's official I'm poor and almost exhausted. Thanks to God, whenever I close my eyes it seems that He tells me that I can do it. I hope so and I know that even if I've been calling for His aid almost every minute He doesn't got tired of me. So, Oh, what I'm still doing here. Bye for now, got loads of stuff to do.
