You often hear various versions of this line in movies and read it in romance novels and love stores: Little girls hope for true love and dream of their wedding day as they pair their Barbies and with their Ken dolls.
Increased power demands have brought about a higher frequency of blackouts and power shortages in many countries. I groan inwardly each time the lights go out because I can’t, for the life of me, remember where I stashed my flashlights.
Okay, so they’re not really going to another planet for a mission. But in the pretend world that most young boys and girls make up while they’re playing with their minifigs, these three special LEGO dudes might as well be.
I usually have my headphones plugged into my ears because it helps take the edge off my day. It doesn’t always help with my productivity though, so I usually go music-less during work and just indulge myself at night.
I’ve never been a huge fan of museums. They’re places chock full of priceless works of art and pieces, I know, but I’m a huge fan of interaction, and that’s not something you can really do in most cases, otherwise security will come stomping their way to you.
It’s been a while since I went down over to the local arcade, but I went crazy with the racing games the last time I was there. I’m a really bad driver, so crashing and veering off the road without any real consequences was a welcome change for me.
Guys are difficult to target when it comes to ads. One of the best ways to get their attention is to plaster a really pretty (or sexy) woman beside the target product, but sometimes, even that doesn’t work.
If you ask me, the mouse is definitely something I can’t live without. Sure, the touchpad on my laptop is enough for my needs sometimes, but I need my USB mouse to be able to drag and drop things with ease.
I think music is a great outlet to release pent-up emotions, be it the good kind or the bad kind. It doesn’t really matter if you’re not very musically inclined or can’t carry a tune; I mean, it’s got to be better than throwing a tantrum or breaking stuff, right?
The last time I sharpened a pencil was when I took my licensure examination to become a Chemical Engineer. Before that, however, the last time I probably sharpened and used pencils on a regular basis was in third grade, before we made the switch to ballpoint pens.
I know it’s not the first time I’ve said this, but I really admire steampunk artists and designers who come up with such ingenious yet fully-functional creations.
Case in point? This Steampunk plasma speaker that produces sound because of a small electrical discharge inside a glass tube.
I’ve always wanted to rage at someone and tell them to eat lead. Okay, so that might just be in my wildest dreams, because I don’t think I can pull something like that off – unless, of course, I actually had these gold Jell-o bullets in my arsenal.
For some reason, I always associate email with “You’ve Got Mail,” that old nineties movie that starred Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Their romance was totally based on their virtual and online conversations, and I always remember that little old ding (or was it more like a chime sounding out?)
I carry a small bottle of Eye-Mo in my handbag wherever I go, just in case my eyes begin to feel dry while I’m out at work or doing errands. I once ran out of Eye Mo and literally pinched myself so hard, just so I could cry some tears and bring back some moisture into them.
I recently stumbled upon a photo album on Facebook about a whole bunch of kids from the University I went to planking all over the campus. The planking photos were amusing, to say the least, and I wasted around a half hour browsing through the entire album.
