This blog is a very tiny window into my blogging life. A narrow, frosted window; the kind you usually see at the dentist's office to shield from view the impending torture slowly deviating toward your mouth.

Unfortunately, most of my blogging content is too personal to put up publicly, and I feel bad because 99.9% of the people I mention it to won't ever have access to it. So I made a public blog. It has resulted in the debacle that is this account - a superficial outpouring in humorously obscure, skewed ways.

Well, hello there, Bobbi Brown:

Nothing really in the Bobbi Brown product line has ever really caught my attention.

Until now:

Mind you, that's US pricing. I'm really interested in picking this up if the color payoff is as good, with high pigmentation. I'm not normally a very big fan of matte colors, as I usually stray to the veluxe or more buttery felt textures. Hmmm...

Of all the things you showed me, this was by far the coolest:

Life goes on.

Siphonophore indeed.

Okay, bye now.


Flames to dust,
Lovers to friends,
Why do all good things come to an end?

Then, there was one.

Joyeux Noel, mon cherie amour.

Merry Christmas! Here's a nice festive look to compliment, well, my awesome fantastic dress. Bryan's was having a "Buy One Dress, Get One Dress Free" sale, so SCORE. (The economy must really be shitty if BRYAN'S is having that kind of sale. Then again, I went home the same night after buying two dresses and found out on Digg that in the US, there's a "Buy One Car, Get One Car Free!" sale. Like, fuck, let's go buy a car.)

I'm afraid my flash kept washing out the color for the close ups, and it never did capture the glitter very well (or at all). Enjoy, and hope you had a good one.

- MAC Face and Body Foundation
- MAC Studio Fix Foundation

Apply Face and Body, then lightly dust over with Studio Fix to seal.

- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- MAC Moss Scape paint pot
- MAC Nylon eyeshadow
- MAC Juxt eyeshadow
- MAC Humid eyeshadow
- MAC Swimming eyeshadow
- MAC Antique Green pigment (LE)
- MAC Reflects Antique Gold glitter (LE)
- Mascara: Lancome Definicils
- Liner: L'Oreal Carbon Black Liquid Liner

Spread Moss Scape paint pot all over the area of the lid where you want the color. Spread UDPP all over the area without the paint pot (ie: the brow highlight area). I didn't want the color to go so high, so I limited the area to the lid because frick, that paint pot can really stick if you don't watch where you put it. Apply Nylon into the inner crease of the eye, and although I'm not a big fan of putting the eyeshadow on the lower lash line, it generally has a nice effect if it blends into the inner eye. Spread Antique Green all over the rest of the paint pot-ted area, working from the outside toward the in. With a fluffier brush (I generally use one good for blending), apply Juxt on the middle lid, starting from farther away and working inward. Blend in Humid into the outer crease for dimension and depth, lightening the darker shadow with some Swimming.

Because I wanted the Antique Green to retain most of its color, I mostly stayed away from actual lid area and concentrated on the surrounding region.

Spread Retro-Spark all over the upper brow for a highlight, blending the green color softly into it. Highlight cheeks and upper brow with glitter.

Create a small liner wing with liquid eyeliner, then curl and apply mascara.

- MAC Dainty (LE) on top of MAC Plum Foolery to dim it down.

- MAC Ample Pink topped with MAC Love Nectar.

Bush is a Ninja

Did you know George W. Bush is actually a ninja? If you saw the Iraqi Shoe Attacks Bush videos that went viral on the net... uh, yesterday(?), then yes. Bush may have been a shitty president, but no one can now deny that he is actually a ninja in his spare time.

On another note, of all the things a person could do with their spare time...

The difference between the clothing I spent <$5 versus the clothing I spent >$150 on?

Nothing really.

Both categories were probably manufactured by Asians with some sort of similar ancestry toward me, get thrown into the laundry hamper regardless, and get stepped on by my dog without any thought.

Hell & Finals

I was reading Lori's blog, and found this. The inner nerd in myself also finds great pleasure in the combination of scientific bull shit combined with religious jargon:

Dr. Schambaugh, of the University of Oklahoma School of Chemical Engineering, Final Exam question for May of 1997. Dr. Schambaugh is known for asking questions such as, "why do airplanes fly?" on his final exams. His one and only final exam question in May 1997 for his Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer II class was: "Is hell exothermic or endothermic? Support your answer with proof."

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:

"First, We postulate that if souls exist, then they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving? I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it will not leave.

Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for souls entering hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, then you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and souls go to hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change in volume in hell. Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant. Two options exist:

1. If hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter hell, then the temperature and pressure in hell will increase until all hell breaks loose.
2. If hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until hell freezes over.

So which is it? If we accept the quote given to me by Theresa Manyan during Freshman year, "that it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you" and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then Option 2 cannot be true...Thus, hell is exothermic."

The student, Tim Graham, got the only A.

And speaking about finals and souls, Nursing has drained my life. I've technically only got two finals, but the clinical portion is a whole exam in itself. Tomorrow's my lab final (the one that got canceled in October) and I've barely dented the required material. I did pretty well, I think, on the final I wrote this morning, so I'm still in okay studying mode -- but I'm really restless. I gotta huddle in recluse somewhere and finally play more than the three hours I've invested into Mirror's Edge because the antsy anticipation is killing me.

I can't wait till the break starts. I can finally start working out again (I haven't since clinical started -- 7 weeks ago) and be progressively on the way to complaining about almost-getting butch arms (I'm far far from attaining that status, despite what comes out of my mouth). And my video games. And my books. Oh man, I can't wait till tomorrow is over...

James Bond incites strange thoughts...

I'm always a big fan of the movies and books that, despite the fiction based background it becomes set in, it always parallels real life and emotion in some sort of way. I love the story has a moral that you can ground into your personal philosophy, or at least one that you can contemplate over and decide whether or not it is applicable in any way, shape or form in which you live your life.

There's a part of me that abhors Disney to a point (maybe there was a reason I didn't watch a lot of those cartoons as a kid) because of this. Disney is so full of crap sometimes. I much prefer Japanese anime in terms of the story lines they deliver -- they're much more life applicable most of the time (because well, you can only dig around Bleach for so many morals before you're pulling them out of your ass).

Take for example The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. What a marvelous ending. Not the happily ever after, but the sad truth that life doesn't magic into being what you wish could come true. That while extenuating circumstances do exist, there's no fairy godmother that's going to make you a Swarovski-envying diamond ballgown.

Considering how optimistic I usually am in terms of life, I guess its a surprising contrast to see that I love the tragic ending. The endings where someone dies. Where there is betrayal. Where there is the self-sacrificing virtuous person that fucks up everyone else's happy ending thinking that they're doing the right thing, but in reality, because they died, they've doomed everyone they're leaving behind to a semi-miserable existence because they can't live without her/him. Those fucked up endings? Absolutely love them.

I believe the person that you believe you will fall in love with in your mind truly exists somewhere in this world -- but the likelihood of you ever finding them is nil to none. However, have hope. Because while I believe that certain someone exists somewhere, a person is always compatible with many others.

However, I believe in working for love. I believe that relationships are something that you have to fight to keep, to maintain. The reason I love the Kushiel Legacy series so much is because this is a relationship that gets thrown through the fucking hardest of all freaking trials physically, and doesn't break. But when they're put through the emotional turbine, the couple shatters. But then they work to make it through it all, because despite all their differences ideologically, life wise, and everything else, they truly love each other in spite of it all and try to make it work. I won't say much on it considering I've convinced a few people on my F-list to read it soon, but it truly is an amazing trial of lives to read.

I took a lot away from it, and believe me, the fact that its fiction takes nothing away from its amazing parallels to human relationships.


How this relates to James Bond:

Vesper is someone he finally took a chance on and decided to love, giving her what he regarded as "what was left of his soul," considering his line of work had most likely wreaked havoc on what he considered a strong moral conscience. However, he believes she betrays him to the bad guys by giving them the $150 million that he won, and consequently, she ends up dying by choice after locking herself in an elevator and drowning to her doom.

Considering James Bond had just retired for her, and wanted to possibly spend the remainder of his life with her, he got severely fucked over in the head because:

a) he is a playboy, and actually taking the time to love someone probably didn't come easy to him.
b) of all the ways to ever be betrayed, it was to the terrorists over $150 million.
c) he probably has never taken that chance on anyone before, and will probably never again.

THEN he found out she didn't really betray him, but actually negotiated his safety when they got kidnapped and he got stripped and hit repeatedly in the balls with an iron ball.

So she wilingly went with him after all that, after him telling her that he "loved her," and willingly took the remainder of his soul, and effectively, with her death, killed that remaining part of him as well.

Poor guy.

I think that's why I liked this Casino Royale/Quantum of Solace series so much. Because at the end of it all, the reality of it all hits much harder at home than if they had just gotten their happily ever after.

Did you pass? - Idiot Test

Edit 1:
OH MAN, Emiel,
You win for the most failed.

In my attempt...

In my attempt to make a more public blog with senseless drivel, I've lost the content value that my other blogs usually hold. You know, with information that would rather make a person contemplate than mindlessly click into videos online. It's strangely unsatisfying, as I've always been a person that would like to make a person think and reflect upon their own life.

Unfortunately, I usually use myself as the main example, which is usually the reason why its not included in this blog.

Enough said:


My words have literally left me now.

It feels strange.

I don't think I've ever lost my voice before.

It brings me to imagine what it would be like to be mute.

The sound of my own breathy, raw, low and cracking voice startles me.

Oh my effing... One Man, One Cup?

Oh man. Oh MAN. OH MAN.




Uhhhh... don't click this link.

I clicked it, but I'm all for the "all knowledge is worth having" tidbit of life.

I mean, I've watched all of Two Girls, One Cup.

But coming from a nursing perspective, oh goshjsdhfjkshdgjklhsjkag.

I'll give you the title of this little number:

One Man, One Cup

That should be good enough warning.

Strange fetishes in the world...

You know, I've taken HECOL 211 - Human Sexuality. I've been exposed to some pretty freakin' interesting fetishes some people have (like, we watched this "documentary" (read: semi-porno) about this one guy had a rubber fetish - like, tires probably turned him on and in order to get off or anything, the woman had to be wrapped in a industrial rubber suit that prevented electricity from zapping her to death).

I've seen the 10+ peircings on men's penises, more holes than I want to see in the labia of females, and a clitoris with a giant diamond stud (of all the ones I've seen, that would have had to be a bitch to get because all the clitoris is, is a giant freakin' bundle of nerves). Only in pictures, mind you, but its enough to get the gears working.

There are some strange fetishes out there, but like, whatever. I don't judge (much). You like what you like, it's something that's personal to you.

But seriously this made me LOL:

Can you IMAGINE the dirty talk associated with this?

"Oh baby, let me raise my arm and show you a treasure trail you've never even thought of."

Games on my Wish List:

Man, school's a bitch. I haven't sat down and played a video game since before I left for the Philippines, which was in July. Then I came back two days before school started, and that's the end of that story. My PS3 and XBox 360 have just been sitting there as a big fat waste of money.

Here's a list of games that have been filtering in the back of my mind for a while, but I probably won't even be able to sit down and play with them until the break.

  1. Final Fantasy XIII
  2. Final Fantasy Versus XIII
  3. Little Big Planet has recently entered my radar, but I'm more intigued by the concept more than anything.
  4. Prince of Persia
  5. Street Fighter IV
  6. Kingdom Hearts 358/2

Kim (formerly Tim) Petras

Think she's hot? Yeah, well, frick man, so do I.

Say hello to Kim Petras, formerly Tim Petras, a German teenager who is an aspiring pop artist.

Petras is well-known for having undergone male to female gender transitioning from an early age. In 2008 she was signed to Joyce Records and released online her first single "Last Forever" which became popular on YouTube and Myspace with her songs being listened to 60,000 and 46,000 times respectively. (

Listening to her songs on Myspace (, I think they're shit, but it's amazing to see just how far hormone therapy has come. I mean, look at how absolutely terrific she looks. if I hadn't seen this:

And consquently was intrigued enough to google it, I wouldn't have thought much on her had I passed her picture on the 'net.

Hey guys. So I really want to change my hairstyle - what do you guys think? I'm leaning toward number three, but leave a comment and tell me what you think. I was thinking about going extremely short (almost bob-like), but I always end up missing my long hair every time I cut it, so I'm definitely going to keep some major length.

No worries -- I realize they're all super Asian, but you know, I'm sticking with what looks good.

And to all those readers (/coughcreepers) that read this and make comments about it to me in real life, I'll see you lovelies on Friday.






Here are the most recent pictures of me. I look like this (I'm the Asian one, for the record):

My hair is really long now, so I've taken to just shoving it behind a headband on a normal day. Example:

MAC Monogram Luxe Launch

MAC has been having all these launches planned that I read the info for, and I'm not really all that gung-ho about. With the release of the Holiday 2008 collection, I was severely disappointed with everything but one lipgloss set, and a couple of the eyeshadow palates. /disgruntled look.

And yes, I'm blogging about makeup. I've probably spent a good $1000+ so far in the last year and a half on MAC. When my collection seems decent (Temptalia owns us all by far), I'll make a collection post. If some person out there can make a thousand and one posts about Nike shoes, I can blog about makeup.

I for one, am finally excited. It's probably because it's gold themed. =) Pictures from Temptalia.
