- Hollie Steel, so very adorable! I absolutely love how Simon was probably thinking. "Is this it?, hoover over the buzzer button, then she starts singing!". Oh, in this episode as well there the 4th judge who is only there for a fraction of a second before producers thought it made the show more complicated or something like that. :)
- Good Evans , how cute is that? A family singing group. And the twins are so adorable! Maybe I am slightly biased, any cute kids can win me over anytime.
- Flawless and Diversity , both dancing groups. Looking at their hit counts on their Youtube page, I suppose you could guess that they are rather good.
- And then there was this other 14 (?) year old kid who also sang rather nicely, but... nah, not really my cup of tea.

I am such a vainpot. :) But that picture is rockin' awesome.
Well, I am just finding reasons to procrastinate really. Math and Chemistry is stressing me out to the max. I feel like if I were to die tomorrow, it would be from all the stress. And my nerves. Oh god, my nerves are amazing...
And, it doesn't help that I am hungry for some sushi and I am on my mood swings again. Damned hormones. If tomorrow headlines is IB student stabs Chemistry book till it was 1982378923847 million pieces, that would be me.
Exams are so close. Yet, here I am.
Staring into the computer screen.
Webpages have never been this interesting before! and why are they all appearing now?!
Why did I not see them before!
Take for example,
Interesting stuff, who wouldn't want to know what are the 10 things Microsoft would not tell you about the XBOX.
Then I read about the Alexa web-rankings. So, basically in about 5 years time, if I am still into the whole blogging scene. I might make it up their list. :)
Then there is the whole 32 things (or whatever) an Apple user should know about the Apple Corporation. Well, basically things I have already been briefed by all the Apple Fanboy's and Girls, I call my Mac-fied friends.
Then there is the Snorgtee's quotes I like reading. Funny!
Almost like one of my all time favorite quote with George.
George : Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.
Lisa : That doesn't mean you need to go show her yours!
Then I also learnt that hamsters eat their own babies if they are not healthy or is sick. Why?!?! So sad. Right, and I was planning on getting one. But they too, poop. Superficial I know.
What other rant can I bore you with? I can bore you with some of the more emolicious poems I wrote some time ago. Some from way back in 2006 or something. :). This one was written waaaaaaayyyy back. I think the reason for all this poems and a softer side of me, is so I can finally get closure. So, I can put the past slightly behind and move forward. Perhaps?
Again, do not assume. So weird to read this poems again, it makes me think that I must be like some weird ass depressed kid or something. Haha!
What if lines were drawn?
But you crossed the line?
Did you know?
Or was it not known?
What if feelings got hurt?
Emotions got stirred,
But you still make mine seem so insignificant.
What if I had things to say,
But my words could never form a sentence?
How am I to tell you?
What would I say?
What if I knew I am living in a delusion?
Would it matter that this is all part of my creation?
All that is left
Are words unspoken.
And feelings left hidden.
What if you didnt know?
Would that matter to you?
What am I to you?
What if you didn´t know?
Would it still matter to you?
Does it still matter?

- Susan Boyle, Youtube video. Obviously almost everybody has seen this video clip. Apparently it is soon to be one of the most viewed Youtube video ever, taking over Avril Lavine's, Girlfriend. Of course it is by no doubt her singing was just incredible! and she obviously has got that certain charm with her. Almost like William Hung or Paul Potts really.
- Miss California's answer to Perez Hiltons question on Miss America. Apparently it is the first time ever that there was serious boo-ing from the audience once the pageant was done, and of course people just went crazy after hearing how she did not think it was all right for same sex marriage to be legalized. Of course this is like such a heated topic as it is and now that she said that, its almost unheard off for pageant people. Personally, I am a bit in between myself. As long as someone is happy, do whatever makes them happy right. So, I am all for same sex marriage, people should be allowed to choose!, but shouldn't she be allowed to voice her opinions too?, good or bad?. I am thinking its really about HOW she put her words that questionable. If only she put in in a better form. And, I suppose its nice to know her real view's on things before being crowned or anything.
- Malaysian Dreamgirls, right. This has to be THE MOST OVERLY DRAMATIC show ever. (And Yes, caps all intended) I don't know if I am proud to see them make a fool of themselves, and in all honesty this year's contestants are really not all that awesome. All they ever care for is drama, and more drama. I can almost say there is more drama in this show then there ever was in Gossip Girl. In fact, this is like the epitome of the Big Brother show about what would happen when you put 12 girls under the same roof for 1 month (?). Effing hilarious.

Cafe's visited lately.
Boy and I have been to a couple more cafe's lately, and here are some that are worth mentioning.
I wonder if I keep this up for another... 2 years, would I eventually generate enough publicity to be able to get my coffee breaks funded by Google or Nuffnang :)
Right now it really seems like Google Adsense is the one generating most money compared to Nuffnang ads. Wicked.
I think you would definitely hear me talk about this cafe a little bit. It has to be one of the better cafe's that I have visited. It is situated at the end of the Kongens Parken, right opposite Jan Thomas's Studio in Parkveien. It is really hard to miss if your going that general direction. Boy and I just happen to stumble upon it while he was going to pick up his bike from the bike store in Oslo.
*(Which would be my next rant some other time, the "other" side of Oslo, not known but offers amazing things. They have got Oasis, Coast and Warehouse all in one row-ish!)
Anyways, back to Åpent Bakeri. The entire bakery has got glass windows and walls, and therefore the name. Åpent (Open). D-oh :). They have got some of the best Hot Chocolate yet, and the prices were not that outrageous.
I paid (I think) 28 NOK for a cup of Hot Chocolate and what's awesome about it is that I think this has to be the first time in Norway that the Hot Chocolate was one that was made out of melted chunks of dark cocoa on a warm foamy milky mixture. Namnammy.
And, you cannot help but to notice the ever famous Studio opposite you, and maybe if your in luck, you could also get a glance some famous people getting their hair fixed or even better you get to see famous people with horrible hair day, so we all know they are humans too. Maybe the King goes there too, whatdoyouthink? :)
Kafe Brenneriet (?), Aker Brygge
The ever famous Kafé Brenneriet. To be honest, it was just so-so for my cup of cocoa, wasn't like over the top good or anything to be honest, though one of the better cups I have had, that I have to admit.
And as I was saying, I think my standards are getting too high and I am starting to expect a bit too much. Is that a bad thing? :)
Though, with that being said. It could also perhaps be because I was sitting right next to the toilet, and therefore part of the time I was sitting hoping, wishing no one opens the toilet door so it hits me right in my back, so my judgement of this could be slightly biased and therefore unfair. Heh.
Pikene på hjørnet, Lillestrøm
I have yet to try out the 'sister café', Pikene på torvet. This one is by the train station, on the other side of Lillestrøm.
Lets make this short : If ever you are there, order their brownie!
Its so effing good. Warm brownie with a scoop of cold vanilla ice-cream on the side, its so good. What more can you want?
Have I mentioned how good it was already? :)
Might be slightly on the pricey-er side, 49 NOK (or something about that) for a small piece of brownie and one scoop of vanilla ice cream but absolutely worth every cent. Pure indulgence. Namnammy.
Right, that was about it I guess, I think I shall leave out the bar we visited with Sharanna and Robin and Thomas since I did not have any coffee there and all I did was sit in freezing cold weather.
**Ignore the previous post, it was written out of instinct and has absolutely no value what-so-ever. Not like this is going to be any different but here are some questions I ponder about in the past 5 minutes. Feel free to answer them if you have any smart guesses or educated guesses. And please, don't harp on the whole "Google it" thinggymajig. If I had internet, I would have done that long ago. :)
Question 1 : Have you watched the Miss California USA's answer to Perez Hilton's question?, what did you think? *coughidiotcough*
Question 2 : What is a Packet Data?, and do I want it for my phone?
Question 3 : Where is all the Malaysian bloggers hate site disappear too?
Question 4 : Why did I not follow the Pirate Bay story closer?
Question 5 : Boy, when can I play with my Spore game again?
Question 6 : What happened to all the hyped up-ed stories of last year, like Madeline McCain, and Josef Fritzl and etc. Why nothing on the news anymore?
Question 7 : Why is Math so useless to me?, why am I so hopeless in Math today? (Pfft, like that doesn't happen everyday). Sines and cosines are just confusing.
Question 8 : Why is there a age limit to enter some restaurants and pubs on weekends?, 'Younger people' need to have a drink too you know!
Question 9 : Should I just go to sleep already?
Bah, sleep first. Last question answered...
***Ironic how I am also typing this from Garcon with Boy. They now put up some new gazebo things so you can sit outside and soak up the sun :)
Here am I,utterly bored and uninspired to do more Chemistry, though I know I shouldn't feel this way. Anyways, as I was listening to John Mayer's, Say from his album Continuum. I realized, its been ages since I read the dictionary and therefore I should do some Dictionary reading of some new words that I see ever so frequently but have never really known what they meant from my iTunes library (be it song titles, albums, or genre) and search them up. Like did you know that Celtic can be pronounced both with a S sound and K sound!
And, how poem can be pronounce the way I pronounced it before!|ˈpōəm; ˈpōim; pōm|, so I was right after all. Hrmph!
Though now I know that my pronunciation of flour is wrong. It is pronounced |ˈflou(ə)r| and "The spelling flower remained in use alongside flour until the early 19th cent."
Oh, and vase can be pronounced as |vās; vāz; väz|, so everyone is most probably right. So is many other words I am sure.
And here is the wild-card word, electricity |ilekˈtrisitē; ˌēlek-|
*My other plan was to actually make a thesaurus on some of my favorite songs. You would be surprised at how funny things are when thesaurus is applied! (Maybe that would be prefect for my next blog). I am sure you all have tried that before. I remember mine being hilarious!
So, here are my list of a few words, perhaps it could help in some essay writing for like... never. Oh, and I am getting really good at reading the pronunciations of things. A couple of years ago, reading how to pronounce thing to me was like what eff is this crap?, its not even letters or words! -__-
*All dictionary searches are from the Apple dictionary thinggymajig.
From John Mayer's Album
a continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not perceptibly different from each other, although the extremes are quite distinct
From Belle and Sebastian Song
each of the twelve chief disciples of Jesus Christ. (Oh, I knew that one)
But here is the interesting fact,
The twelve Apostles were Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James (the Less), Judas (or Thaddaeus), Simon, and Judas Iscariot. After the suicide of Judas Iscariot his place was taken by Matthias.
Ok, I came to realization how boring that was. Apparently, besides one or two artist who uses bombastic words, most of the playlist songs are actually quite understandable. And the only one's I do not understand happens to either be African, Celtic, Irish, etc. And I expect to not know what they mean for a while to come, for example, The Rankin Family's Oganaich An Or-Fhuilt Bhuide / Am Braighe. Try pronouncing that!, and then if your not like a Celtic speaker, I am sure you are not saying it right anyways. :)
Anyways, I think I should keep to my initial plans to play with Thesaurus. You know how "mushy songs" are so cliché, haven't you wondered what if they were written by some thesaurus masters, what it would be like.
** Songs playing on shuffle mode.
John Mayer, Your Body Is A Wonderland.
"Skin like porcelain, one pair of candy-lips and bubblegum talk"
Translate : epidermis, solitary matching set of bonbon edge with bubblegum chat.
Ice on the Wing, Nada Surf
"Baby, ice is growing on the wings"
Translate : Infant, icicles resting on the pinion
Stay, Michelle Featherstone
"If I build a wall, a hundred feet tall, would that keep you in"
Translate : On the condition that I construct a barrier, a hundred feet large, would that retain you inside. (Okay, this song doesn't sound bad at all after translation )
*** A new realization : Maybe it isn't all that funny after all. Wait, I will find some funny one and publish it. Oh well, I did still learn some new words! :)
