What makes a noob?

The following are words I read from a magazine I just read:

Do you feel insulted when someone calls you a noob? Well, suffer no more and grab a copy of the following game guides that will surely hone your skills to be a master of your own craft.

I couldn’t disagree more.

I say, the fact that one will “grab a copy” and read any such books is exactly what will make one a complete noob.

Reading about games doesn’t make you master of it. Playing those games will.

Oh, I should say, it’s not a gaming magazine so…

Cat Days: Some observations from the first 24 hours

Yesterday afternoon, I took two kittens from my sister’s place and brought them back here in my place.

I thought I knew enough about cats but, apparently, there were a few things I was yet to learn and I’m quite sure there are a lot more things I could learn about them.

I wasn’t even half-way to my place when I learned the first thing about Tiger and Lynx.

  • Cats mostly take care of themselves. Unlike dogs, they clean themselves up and they clean up after themselves.
  • Cats become familiar with whatever it is you transported them in. I tried to make a new place for them when we arrived but they still went back to their box, anyway. They don’t sleep there, though.
  • Cats like to sleep in just enough places then they huddle together. They slept in the distance between their box and the new one. It’s got some sort of roof because I used the flap of their box as a bridge and they sleep under that bridge.
  • Cats know how to keep their environment clean. I woke up really early this morning to too much light from outside my room and to my cats. I was still sound asleep while they were already playing around. Then, they realized they still had some food left over from last night so they decided to have their first breakfast.After that, Tiger started clawing away at my sandals. I thought the cat was just playing with the rubber. It was only when Tiger started clawing at the concrete when I realized what the cat was actually doing: Tiger was trying to dig, getting ready to take a dump.

    I was so certain because I’ve seen cats do it before. And I realized I was yet to get the litter box prepared. (It was already late in the afternoon so…) I was too late to realize what Tiger was doing so I was too late when I came back. It was done.

    Not a good picture, I know, but dogs won’t even dig.

  • Cats a picky when it comes to eating. Not the food but where the food is. They seem to not eat anything that has gone out of the plate, so to speak.
  • Kittens handle separation well. I thought they’d be mewling all night like their mother did when the litter before this one was sent away. They didn’t. Then again, it probably helped that I brought two with me instead of just one. I thought one would need another to play with so I decided to bring two.
  • Cats like being together. Lynx has jumped to my bed already but Tiger seems to be the weaker jumper and couldn’t make. I had to help it up because… I just… Well, the cat was trying to jump up to the bed but just couldn’t!

That’s quite a few already and that’s before the first 24 hours is even over but I know for sure that as these Cat Days go on, I am bound to learn a lot more about them.

They love my bed. I will have to secure my bed. For now, they can stay.

This is why I stay until the credits are done rolling

They put extras way beyond the end of the movie.

Care to hazard a guess which movie these ones came from?

New Album: The Truth About Love

It’s P!nk‘s The Truth About Love.

P!nk, The Truth About Love, cover

I admit, the album was released over a year ago already. So, it’s not very new. But, it’s new to my library so, it new!

I kinda got the wrong album, though. I wanted the one with F*ng Perfect in it but this isn’t the one, apparently. I was in a hurry, so…

Can’t say I hate it, though. Mistake wasn’t so huge. I like it. After all, it didn’t get positive reviews and so many accolades for nothing. So, it’s still a good one.

I really, really, really liked Try and wanted to get it so, I guess, I’m still good.

Oh oh

Ever wonder about what he’s doing?
How it all turned to lies?
Sometimes I think that it’s better to never ask why

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Eh, eh, eh

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy?
Even when it’s not right

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Ever worry that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you’re out there doing what you’re doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by, by, by?

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

What’s not to like, right?

I must say this, though. After listening to some tracks, I feel like I will have to remove this album from my library. I’m just… A bit sensitive about language.

Drop me a line if you want it and I’ll point you to the right place.
