Here is my new toy

Some months ago, an arrogant (and dare I say, asshole) blogger whom I am loathe to name once referred to yours truly as “that unemployed blogger”. I’ve been waiting for the right time to buy this so when I was at Gurney Plaza on Sunday (and it so happens that on the same day, my old Nokia 1110 failed on me), I decided to snap this up at RM1.3K + RM99 for the 1GB miniSD flash card.

Now here is my new toy.

I don’t think “unemployed” people can afford this tool anyway. So here’s my middle finger showing at that aforementioned blogger whom I am loathe to name. Hah!

    1. Well I guess we can’t stop ppl from critizing us bloggers who make a living online. Just be patient. It is not good scolding ppl. Just my 2 cents!

    2. I’m new here, and here’s a little about me. I’m a 24 year old attractive woman who is active duty military (home-ported) and new here so I am on a light schedule 2 days work 2 days off etc etc. So I am home a great deal of time, and when I am not I am only 2 miles away from our home.

      My husband is 26 years old and is a retired army vet who sustained injuries causeing him to be medically disabled, he isnt in a wheelchair or anything, he’s physically capable of doing things just his medical problems ake it nearly impossible to sustain a traditional civilian job so he is at home.

      When we were dating, before we were married he had no addictions, he had an xbox and rarely used it, maybe he’d get onlineto play with friends he knew IRL from time to time but it was nothing major and I considered that normal. Now he has “friends” he made while playing the game and acts as if they “depend” on him to play with them to level up or whatever.

      Recently, he bought the COD MW3 game and it feels like thats all she wrote. He no longer/rarely calls/texts me while I’m on duty at work. And when I’m home he’ll get on there and 4 or more hours will go by leaving me to feel as if I shouldnt have come home in the first place. We’ll be watching a movie on netflix or hulu and he’ll say something like “oh so and so’s on” like he wants to stop what we’re doing and do that.

      I feel like I’m here in real life so I should be more important. I’m hurt, I feel ignored and discarded as he is also increasingly moody if I ask him to do something non-game related. I’m hoping this is just a phase, like a new toy thing children go through because I have no idea what to do if it lasts. Please offer any advice possible and if your SO went through this game or something similar how long did it last?

    3. Hello. I just bought a Fresh Air Globe. I really like it but I’m not very fond of the fragrance drops it came with. The drops are oil based. Can I use a drop of my own fragrance oil? The directions don’t say I can’t. I don’t think it will cause harm but I don’t want to break my new toy. Thank you.

    4. The film dub feat releases here (New Zealand) on Feb 18. I am just a little curious about what will happen when the first movie ends. I would be very surprised if there was no intermission. But I am still asking if there is one. And are there any ads before the two movies? I thought that there would not be but the page of info for my cinema says that Toy Story 1 is 4 mins longer than on dvd (including credits) and that Toy Story 2 is 10 mins longer. http://www.readingcinemas.co.n.....8;title=3D Toy Story and Toy Story 2 – Double Feature!
      It originally said that the dub feat would be 177 mins and then said 200 mins and you can see for yourself what it says now. So for those of you who saw it when it came out in America. I have 3 questions. How long is the intermission and is there one or not? Are there ads before the 2 movies? And where abouts in the dub feat is the 5 min clip of Toy Story 3?

    5. I’m 14 and my sister is 12, the youngest in the family, and has an iPod, a phone with a plan, a laptop and gets the money she wants when she asks for it and is now yelling at my mother for an iphone exclaiming that “you have a lot of money in your bank!” – I have had the same nokia for a few years now as it is all i need
      Just 2 weeks ago my mother was going through her credit card transaction history and found that someone took 300 dollars out on the day that my sister took my mother’s card to the shopping centre…
      We found out a little later on that she used 375 dollars on things she doesn’t need!
      No one will tell me what she bought with most of it ($300), but I found some reciepts under my bed (we share the same room) that have a $40 jacket, $15 mascara, $20 for 2 iPod covers and then all of a sudden she came home with brand new Vans shoes saying that “my friend bought them but they didnt fit her so she gave them to me”
      I was wondering, why would her friend buy brand new $90 Vans that dont fit her and rather than returning them, give it away? She’s also come home with brand new jumpers and leggings everyday…
      The only punishment she was given for the $375 was 1 week during the holidays being grounded and no laptop or phone privileges – this hadn’t changed a thing

      Other than the money problem, she’s completely unorganised and messy! Sharing a room with her sucks as its a tiny room – she throws her blankets and covers on the floor when she wakes up, she keeps wrappers and tissues all on the ground as well as her clothes – and everytime something gets lost or something happens to her stuff, I’m the one to blame, as if I have taken it or hidden it
      My mum is always upset that she spends money and won’t clean her room
      She’s not thankful for anything – my mother makes her food and gives it to her as she just sits back on her laptop, she also cleans her room for her and my sister does not care at all

      I think this might be bad friendship influences as she is always going out to her friends houses and even these little underage club things at 12!
      We live in this little derro kind of area and so the kids here really arent good at all, thats why I go to a school in the city but anyway, how can she learn that this is bad? Advice please
      Forgot:
      she also goes to macdonalds or KFC all the time wasting money,
      for instance, the day before we found out about the $300 thing, she had gone to mcdonalds with her friend spending $15 for lunch – later that night we drive back so she can buy a $5 cheeseburger
      I don’t think she understands, our family barely has any money – my mother has stopped working because she is in pain and my dad is working 1 full time job going back and forth to the city and 2 other minimal jobs just to pay for everything
      @Alyssa: thanks for your answer, i think our siblings are almost the same! :-p the invisible line thing was funny but i don’t think theres anything of hers that i’d want haha
      Oh and also, around the start of the year she had a load of money, and would tell my mother that she owes her $40 – when all this money she has is from her … then not too long ago she left a note to dad with a $50 note saying “I heard you don’t have much money so here is $50”
      My mother and I were wondering where she would even get that money

    6. Should I maybe let her pick out a special bone too? Or maybe get some special soft food to mix in with her kibble?

      Or just letting her go in and pick out a tennis ball should that be enough for my New Years Girl.

      Her 3 favorite things in the world are Tennis Balls, Bones, and food.

      My puppy isnt a puppy anymore..she is officially an adult (well as of tomorrow)

    9. I have face major problem with my blog that it was not spam and blogger take my blog as spam….Can any one help me to recover my blog back.

    10. Hi I am trying to preview articles from blogger on a separate site, where the most recent article would show up and could link to the blog itself. I have googled enough and read about rss. I can code html, xml etc. I would really appreciate any help

    11. I have a (almost) four year old chocolate labrador, female, and she is the sweetest dog I have ever met and very well trained. We just got a male yellow labrador yesterday, he is eight weeks old, and our older female was happy about him being around until she realized he was here to stay. This morning she was growling at him and a little while ago, he came up to her to play with his new toy (I got my female a new toy as well) and she bit him, not enough to draw blood but he was whimpering. She has never been aggressive before towards anyone or anything. We have all been paying them attention equally and giving our older dog special attention. Our puppy wants more to do with our dog than he does us, honestly. Up until she snapped at him he had been following her around and trying to play and cuddle with her. Is there anything we can do to help her warm up to puppy? Or any advice on her bad behavior?
      I’m not saying that the puppy doesn’t pay attention to me or the rest of the family, he’s constantly trying to climb all over me and following me around.

    12. I have 4 children ages 2 months 4,6,8 and this year unfortunately Iwill not be able to provide them with gifts due to a series of tragic events. Our home burnt down 2 weeks ago and I couldn’t afford renters insurance so I lost everything right now my children and I are staying in some shabby motel off of the highway you know where the truckers stop for rest this is the worst holidays my children and I have ever experienced. I guess we will be here for a while until we get placed. I would just like to try to make the best of there holidays I am not begging!!

    13. Thirty thousand feet above the ground, soaring over the clouds, I was beginning on a journey of which most people dream a lifetime. I was a five-year-old child; my family and I were moving half way across the world to Italy. My father was in the Air Force traveling to his next duty station. My family and I were excited to be traveling to a world so different from anything we had ever known. We had arrived open-eyed and ready to explore everything we could find. We spent the next four years in this manner, traveling from one foreign city, one country, to the next. The language and culture had become our own. My brother, sister, and I knew more about this “foreign” country than the one in which we were born. Our journey, far from completion, was changing course. Soon, we were back above the clouds embarking on a new expedition. We were moving home. A home we had never seen, a country we barely remembered.
      Pensacola, Florida, seemed like an entirely different world. When the plane landed, my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins were waiting. They had changed so much from the faces I remembered. Before I knew it, we had started traveling deeper and deeper into this unfamiliar place. The cars, the roads, the buildings all were different. The place we knew was nothing like the one where we had just arrived. The car ride was altogether a new experience; I could not figure out why it took so long to reach our new home. In Italy, the cities were condensed; wherever we needed to go was just a short walk away. Here in this new country, it seemed we had to drive for hours before we reached our destination. I did not see any of the sights I was used to seeing. Everywhere I turned, there was a fast food restaurant, where you did not even have to get out of your car to eat dinner. The shopping seemed different as well. We had known small family owned shops, and here it looked like anything you could imagine was in huge warehouse buildings. Finally, we arrived at my grandparents’ house. We spent the next few days visiting with our family.
      My family lived an entirely different life than any I had seen. In Italy, our friends and family, Giorgio and Antoinette, owned a small family restaurant. Antoinette cooked everything from scratch, Giorgio was the local bartender, and their children were just as involved, learning the ropes for their future restaurant. My family, on the other hand, seemed to work apart from each other. My cousins were learning their own ways and taking a different path than their parents. The two families although similar in structure were completely different in function.
      During the time we spent with my family, I noticed more differences between the way they lived and the way the Italians lived. The lifestyles where different even in the way they related to friends and family. I remembered that in Italy the social get-togethers revolved around family and friends. To the Italians there was very little distinction between these two. I am sure everyone at some point in their lives has heard of the quote, “ Welcome to the family!” usually uttered by a dark haired, smiling man. During my families time in Italy this was exactly how we were treated the moment we stepped foot in the country. In America, I was expecting the same trust between people. Later, I realized the reason that there was a lack of immediate trust. In America, because of the fast paced lifestyles and the way the culture has evolved, people have placed a natural guard between each other. This sparked a new fascination, from this moment on, I was dedicated to explore and I did just that, pointing out the distinctions along the way.
      Traveling this new city was puzzling to me as a child; I could not find any parks to visit, or castles to explore. Instead, the city soared miles into the sky, and highways extended everywhere. People were going from one shopping center to another; everywhere I turned, I could find a new toy or gadget being advertised. This experience, although confusing, was more interesting than even the biggest castle I could have found. With every corner, every new sight I became obsessed with pointing out the unusual. I found my own personal storybook, and with each page, something changed. My mother noticed this fascination, and started taking us on trips throughout the city teaching us the local history and explaining why this world was so different from the one in which we were raised.
      Eventually, this too became second nature. Our home was no longer foreign; the shock of a new culture did not seem so difficult to understand. Still, I never forgot that feeling, the first time I saw a new culture, and the first time I was able to recognize the differences in lifestyles. I never forgot nor will I forget the storybook life. Through the years after this, my family and I moved to over five states and visited more than half the country. Each time we stepped into a new city, I immediately began to look around, analyzing

    14. Just because it isnt recongnized with the AKC doesnt mean they arent a breed. There are plenty of breeds that the AKC hasnt recognized because they are new or they havent been shown tons of interest here in the USA. & If people agree that the mini aussie is in fact a breed, why not the toy? I understand some people seem to think that you’d have to introduce smaller breeds with the mini to get a toy, but this isnt true for all toys. To me, that just shows irresponsible dog breeding. I guess my point is that no, I didn’t “waste my money” on my toy aussie. Toy aussies do have an oraganization to be registered with, & are working hard to become part of the AKC. As far as for the people who think that I need to “get rid of” or “not even bother” breeding these wonderful little dogs, I’d say stop being ignorant & realize these dogs are a breed, and are not “mutts”.

    15. I am now divorced and had a blog with my ex-husband under his email. I have asked him multiple times to remove it and he has refused – I am assuming just to annoy me. Is there anyway to get blogger to remove it?

    16. Ebay just isn’t cutting it these days for me, so I thought I would post here for some new ideas. I have a tremendous amount of complete action figure sets from star wars.(every episode ever made) Over 100 rare and retired Beanie Babies, Starting lineup collections including Derek Jeter and other big names. I am too old to hang on to these items and I would like to get a decent return from them. Where is the best place to do that?

    17. What is the difference between a Toy Schnauzer and a Miniature Schnauzer? I’m assuming they are the same. I never heard the term, “Toy Schnauzer”, until recently.

    18. A boy shoves his stuffed toy zebra down a frictionless chute, starting at a height of 1.61 m above the bottom of the chute and with an initial speed of 1.69 m/s. The toy animal emerges horizontally from the bottom of the chute and continues sliding along a horizontal surface with coefficient of kinetic friction 0.297. How far from the bottom of the chute does the toy zebra come to rest? Take g = 9.81 m/s2.

    19. This was a building toy, kind of like construx, but more basic. It had these colored plastic tubes of different lengths and colors (I sometimes used the red ones as straws) and they were connected by these white plastic pieces that had 2, 3 or 4 prongs. I can remember being able to build a train out of them. If you know the name of the toy or what company created it, that would be awesome. Thank you.

    20. My daughter wants a airbrush tattoo toy so she can do her own tattoo. Please a washable one for my sake. Thank you.
