Demonoid Invitation Codes Up for Grabs

Just got lucky! After weeks of searching for that dang invitation code from Demonoid, the other day I finally got one that's working! Yipee yay! So what's the hype, you ask. Demonoid closed their registration some time ago and new members can only sign up if they have an invitation code, which are given by those who already have Demonoid accounts. So the quest for that code became a rat race and I swear I just whooped with joy when I finally got hold of one.

So where are the stupid invitation codes, you b*tch! It's what led us to this stupid page in the first place. Okay, relax. Breathe a little. As I said, I JUST signed up, so no invitation codes would appear on my control panel, YET. It says there that "Invitation codes are limited based on time since last creation and other factors". I wonder what other factors are that. I am guessing one factor is ratio (uploaded against downloaded), so I am seeding new torrents like a maniac here so I could get those elusive codes for ya all. Okay, not exactly YOU ALL, just the few lucky souls who gets to be chosen as THE LUCKY ONES.

As I said, the moment those codes appear on my panel, I'd give it away in a jiffy. So what do I suggest you do? Leave a comment, as that will be the basis of who I give those codes to. Alright? I'm thinking of feeding the number of comments to, and type in the number of codes I have available for giveaway, to be fair. Just be patient, as these codes are really hard to come by. But, you never know. You might just get as lucky as I was the other day. The comment box is waiting for you :)

Edit: A lot of you have been asking. WTF is Demonoid. Okay, it was stupid of me to assume y'all know WTH I was talking about since the places that I frequent in the web have heard about it and are clamoring to get into it. Anyways, since I am not good at explaining things, I'll let Wikipedia do the job:

Demonoid is a website and BitTorrent tracker created by an anonymous Serbian known only by the pseudonym "Deimos". The website indexes torrents uploaded by its members. Membership is required to download torrent files older than a few days. Registration is opened periodically when resources permit due to large server size. Users have the ability to create a limited number of invitation codes to send to others during closed registration periods.

So there. :)

Ever Felt Un-sexy?

I just did. And coming from someone who's been comfortable with being slim all my life, that's scary. I don't know. I guess it's because nobody's been making me feel like I am the most desirable woman on earth lately. Hubby's the only one who can make me feel that, and although we talk from time to time, there's been no mention of US in our conversations. Just Svet, Svet, Svet. Not that I mind. I love talking about our child with him, updating him of her latest delightful antics.

So there I was, feeling like an old, undesirable hag and I just have to tell you, it is not the most pleasant feeling in the world. I HAD to do something about it. With the computer as my ally, I surfed for sometime, looking for articles to, you know, boost my esteem a bit. After a while, I thought, why not buy myself something to MAKE me feel sexy? I think I deserved it, after all. And just in case hubby decides to come back earlier than promised. *wink*

I have been forever wanting something that looks like what Elisha Cuthbert wore in one of her sexy pictures posted online, something see-through but leaves something for the imagination. I of course searched for discounted lingerie, being the cheapskate that I am. Tee hee. I was unsure if I could find something that I liked at a cheap price, when I landed at Sexy Depot and found this perfect tunic style top much like that of Elisha's.

I loved it at first sight, so after checking to see if they accept Paypal, which they do, I decided to checkout the item at once. Now I am just waiting for my order to be sent to a friend to the United States, so she can send send it to me later. It was a fast and easy shopping experience, frankly, and I could not ask for more. Save for more discounted lingerie. Hee hee.

Sniff, sniff...

Am I really deserving of all these awards? You people make me feel special, really. I had just posted three last time and here I am again posting another two. My blog will be full of awards posts by the time you are all through with me. Hehe. Not that I'm complaining. In fact, I immensely enjoy doing this, it helps me connect with blog friends more closely and reveal stuff about me that I would otherwise have no excuse of revealing. Harr!

Anyways, Rosemarie down at her super red blog was given the birthday wish award and thoughtfully passed it on to me. Even though my birthday is still months away (July 26, make a note of that. Tee hee), this would be a good chance to post my birthday wish list *hint, hint*, as the rules go like this:

1. Make a list of what you want on your birthday...
2. The list should be 15 numbers
3. Post the image of this award in your posting
4. Give it to 10 friends of yours.

Fifteen wishes? That's generous! Can I make it twenty? No? *pouts* Okay, so here they are. I wish:

1. Hubby decides to come back home earlier than he promised.
2. Everyone I love to have good health.
3. For more sources of income from the internet so I can help my entire family.
4. To find more blog friends.
5. To enroll in an online class to learn web design.
6. For Svet to finally have longer hair.
7. For the wooden computer table with mahogany woodgrain laminate finish I saw at a local Save on Surplus Store.
8. For a Bloom Fresco Loft Highchair in Rosy Pink with Black Base for Svet..
9. For an LG Turbo Wonder WF-T7012EN Fully Automatic Washing Machine.
10. For a Macbook.
11. For a PlayStation 3 80GB.
12. For a Samsung LN52A630 52-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV.
13. For a pink Fujifilm Finepix Z20fd 10MP Digital Camera.
14. For the book Sheila Levine is Dead and Living in New York, as I lost my precious copy of that.
15. And of course, world peace. *grins*

It becomes readily obvious that I am an worker because I get ideas of what I want from there. Tee hee. Anyways, I want to pass it on to the following dear people: Polly of Angels in my Garden, Clarisse of Coffee, Anyone?, Cookie of Cookie's Corner, Nadine of Color Me Rainbow, Ayien of Naomineiya, Kristine of the Kuting Chronicles, Pin of Pin's Thoughts, Badet of Everything Nice!, Mommy J of Pinay WAHM and finally, Phoebe of The Baby in Between.

Now for the second award. This was passed on to me by Polly of Angels in my Garden, who was sweet enough to think of giving me this. Anyways, the rules for recipients of the Triple Awards are as follows:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude. (If you don't have 10, it doesn't really matter.)
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

In turn, I am giving this to Gelene of Sexychiicq, Gin of e-Pamilya, Pehpot of Make or Break, Bhoyet of Super Gulaman, Lizzie of LittleLizWorld and Procne of License to Trespass. Just ran out of friends again. Sheesh. Tee hee. Anyways, I want to post so many things here but until I remember some of them, they will have to wait. Have a happy weekend everyone! :)

I'm (Sort Of) Back!

I took it as a sign that I badly needed to get out of my depressing hole when I was given blog awards by four friends in a span of two weeks. After the last one informed me that I received yet another one, I felt guilty. Yes, you readers make me feel guilty of not updating my blog. Perhaps you really do love me. And I SO appreciate the fact that some of you took the time out to send a word or two of encouragement and support during these times that I feel most vulnerable. That being said, these are the blog awards that was thrown my way while I was inside my shell:

The Blog Love Award, given to me by Mommy May, who has just given birth to the cute Ernest Jéan Nicholas, is first in line, since it was given to me two weeks ago. So here are the rules:

1. Put the logo in your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who shared it with you.
3. Pass this award to your Blog Lover Friends
4. Add your link to the list of participants below
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Now I am passing it on to these people, who love to blog as well, and deserve this award much more than I do: Sterndal (love your new blog, dearie), Fedhz (thanks for dropping by lately, your blog is really informative.), Phoebe (thanks for linking me in your blog, sis!) and Man (you love to blog, so you are an easy choice for a recipient.*wink*)

Blog Lovers: 1.Soul Anchor 2.Cookie’s Corner 3.Life is Good and Beautiful 4.DANAH - The Dawn That Shines 5.THE WORLD AROUND ME 6. Maria 7. Carnation…because life is beautiful 8. Handsome Little Nicholas 9. Random WAHM Thoughts 10. YOU! Next…

I have also been tagged by Manuel of the outrageously orange blog. He is the reason why I started loving the color orange (I actually have an orange desktop wallpaper right now and planning to paint my nails with the same color. *grins*). I have received a similar award before, although this one does not come with a badge of some sort, and besides it's only asking for six random things about me, so wth. I'd be glad to reveal six other stuff about me, whether you like it or not. But I won't be passing this along to six people, just three, and they are: Pehpot (i'm sorry i haven't been able to chat. i'm still sorting my thoughts out.), Juliana (hi love! thanks for the drop-by) and Tetcha (your questions are always welcome.). Okay, so here goes six stuff about yours truly:

1. I am a cry baby. I am always the first to cry in any situation that gives an excuse for crying.

2. I unmix mixed nuts. I know they're supposed to be eaten as is, but I cannot resist segregating them and eating the ones with the most number in their group first, down to the least. It's an OCD, I know.

3. The last time I went to a movie theater was six years ago, to watch Jeepers Creepers with a guy friend. I'd rather watch flicks in the comforts of my own home than hear strangers at the movie house deliver a blow-by-blow account of what's happening on screen.

4. I snore when I'm dead tired. My mom even recorded it once, and gleefully shares it to anyone who'd listen.

5. I am getting addicted to digital scrapbooking. I have been preoccupied with it in the last few days and find solace in doing it.

6. I live in a cold place, and it gets colder everyday. I used to not mind the cold. But now is a different story. I'll go into the details later.

Last award is the Honest Scrap Award, given to me by Aria and Pehpot. You guys think I'm honest? Tee hee. Anyways, the rules are to list ten honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep! and pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap. I think I qualify for the last four letters of the award (crap. harrr.). Ten honest things? You want honest? I'll give you honest.

1. I have been a terrible daughter last year, and I seriously hope that I will be able to make it right this time.

2. I am the worst person on earth because I said the most hurtful things to hubby last January 9, things that I am not proud of admitting that I said, but did.

3. I am a terrible wife, because I failed to see that hubby has been good to me all the while, and he is not all that I accused him of.

4. I am not half as responsible as you people think I am. These past few days have made me realize that.

5. I could not have survived this episode if not for Svetlana. She has been my constant source of strength, making me laugh and smile so often with her newly learned things.

6. I've been having a hell of a hard time playing full time mom to my daughter and part time writer while keeping house all at the same time. I'm not in a position to complain, as I brought this upon myself, but I know with this I'll become a stronger person.

7. I'd give up everything just to have hubby back. But I know that we need to both learn to grow up, before he comes back home. So that when he does, it'll be for good. I don't know when will that time come, but I know, I KNOW, that it would come.

8. They say you never miss the water until it's gone. I miss my water so bad.

9. I cry silently at night, every night since January 9.

10. I was crying while I was doing these ten items.

So there. That's two birds in one stone. An update from me and passing on a blog award. By the way, I'll just be passing on this award to one person, and that is Melanie from Life in Bellevue, who is a constant presence in my blog, throwing warm and encouraging words towards my way. Dearie, you are a love, and I really, really appreciate you for that. Whew. This post is long. But it was worth it. I got everything off my chest. That's a very heavy load off back. I am just glad that hubby and I talk once in a while now, and even if we are not (yet) talking about us and about what happened, we talk, and that's what matters.

A Serious Post

I missed this blog. I just didn't realize how much until I started typing the title of this blog post. I missed spewing my usual sarcastic lines, but my need to blog about my life was bridled by stuff that happened to me this week. I know I have let down some of you. Yes, a public apology is deserved by my friend Pehpot because I promised to make a button for her site but the night that I was supposed to make it, something happened. Now I won't go into any details right now because I still need some time for myself before I could muster enough courage to spill it all out.

See, I'm having a rather VERY Uma Thurman moment right now. Look up the movie Prime, it's the part near the end. If you've seen the movie, I guess you'd pretty much have an idea what hell I am going through right now, but for those of you who have not seen it, I suggest you do, or wait for an update from me. I don't know when will I have the strength... I hate to leave you guys hanging, but I really should stop now as I don't think tears on my keyboard would be a good thing if I want this keyboard to last.

Why I'm Thankful I'm a WAHM

Received this in my email late last night and I thought I'd share it with you guys. I was able to relate to EACH and EVERY item on the list, and I know many of you work in an office (or used to), so I think this would be worth wasting two minutes of your time.


Rule 1. - The Boss is always right.

Rule 2. - If the Boss is wrong, see rule 1.

Rule 3. - Those who work get more work. Others get pay, perks, and promotions.

Rule 4. - Ph.D. stands for "Pull Him Down". The more intelligent a person, the more hardworking a person, the more committed a person; the more number of persons are engaged in pulling that person down.

Rule 5. - If you are good, you will get all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it.

Rule 6. - When the Bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.

Rule 7. - It doesn't matter what you do, it only matters what you say you've done and what you are going to do.

Rule 8. - A pat on the back is only a few centimeters from a kick in the butt.

Rule 9. - Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

Rule 10. - The more crap you put up with, the more crap you are going to get.

Rule 11. - If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.

Rule 12. - When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.

Rule 13. - Following the rules will not get the job done.

Rule 14. - If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.

Rule 15. - Everything can be filed under "Miscellaneous" .

Rule 16. - No matter how much you do, you never do enough.

Rule 17. - You can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work you are supposed to be doing.

Rule 18. - In order to get a promotion, you need not necessarily know your job.

Rule 19. - In order to get a promotion, you only need to pretend that you know your job.

Rule 20. - The last person that quit or was fired will be held responsible for everything that goes wrong.

Number 12 is a favorite. Haha! Have a good weekend everyone! Enjoy your days without a boss. Hehehe.

As Promised

I just have to point out that I am beginning to acquire this habit of posting entries at godforsaken hours and I seriously don't know why. I was making this huge list of the hundreds of e-books that I own, out of pure OC-ness. I am not finished yet, mind you. I have not even scratched the surface, and my fingers are already hurting from too much contact with the keyboard. Oh well, this is exercise. I hope to increase my typing speed anyway, so.

Before my first shot at being a tourist guide of my own blog was cut (mercifully, you say. And I hear you) short by Svet's excellent imitation of an ambulance siren, I was pointing out to you, my beloved readers, the little changes that I made in my blog. I have a WHERE I EARN widget now, for the purpose of sharing my money-making (however little) activities in the Internet. I have plans of discussing all of them them in a separate post but those are just plans, so. I hope I could finish my e-book organization hype before the week ends so I can do that. My ever loyal reader wanted a tutorial (I felt like I am GrandMaster of all GPT sites) and since I am kind and all, I'd do it. I just don't know when. Hehe.

I also moved around my Adsense boxes and changed them to the biggest rectagular sizes as well as chose to blend them with my template so that you people will start clicking at the ads and not just focus on what I write in here. Imagine a writer like me asking to not mind what I write, just click on the damn ads! I think it actually worked, because I checked my Adsense stats today and some of you actually clicked on the ads. Suckers. Haha! Okay, I take that back. I would not want to piss you off and have you deliberately ignore my ads.

Now what else..I changed the MEET THE WAHM header a bit too. Added some random stuff about me and deleted phrases which I think is not helping boost my site views at all. Except for the moron thing, I think more people were hooked here because of that. Hehe. Changed the links below the headers too. Removed those that are not in my priority list anymore and added a new one. Moved some of the widgets around and put externally hosted images below the page so my blog will load a wee bit faster. Anyway, I really don't think it worked, but I gotta do something for the sake of scratching the itch, you know.

The number of blog listings button ballooned to like thrice its original number because I desperately wanted to get approved by one of my earning sites but I can only be accepted if I have a Google PageRank of more than 0. I was zero several days back (Yeah, I know. Loser, huh?) but went up to three after I went on a blog listing spree the other night. I know it doesn't look good having so much buttons but it got me approved, so what the heck. Anything for that extra income. Haarr!!

I likewise checked each and everyone of the blog listing sites that I linked back to in order to see if I am still listed. Some seems to have removed me or forgotten to include me in their list so I removed their buttons in my blog as well. An eye for an eye. But those sites I genuinely liked I gave the benefit of the doubt and e-mailed to let them know that my blog is not listed in their site. Also placed a separate space for those who grabbed my button which is why they have their own buttons placed on my page so that I might entice others to do the same. That is, I HOPE I might *hint, hint*.

Do I really have to point out every little change that I made last night? That is your question. My answer is NO, I didn't have to do it but I wanted to bore you while adding one post to my blog, so there. I think I'm about to pass out from sleepiness now. So pardon the grammatical and spelling errors as I don't have the zest left to proofread anymore. G'nyt!

The Itch

For those of you who have been reading my blog since day one, you would certainly NOT fail to notice my penchant for changing my site template every now and then. I was actually quite surprised myself when a couple of weeks have passed and I have not decided to redo my blog's look. I would have been celebrating my new found discipline at keeping to one design had it not been for my blog hopping activity today which landed me to several delicious blog template sites. I swear I am THE Rebecca Bloomwood* of blog templates.

Anyways, one of my New Year's resolution must be to keep my blog design for AT LEAST two months before doing an overhaul again, because discipline won over my itching to hit that lovely blue Edit HTML link. I swear those templates were screaming at me when I was browsing them.


They chant over and over in my head. Or maybe it's not really that I already have discipline when it comes to the issue. I think it's more of laziness, as it is already two in the morning here and I should have been snoring four hours ago.

But of course, when I have an itch, I just HAVE TO scratch it, even JUUUST a teensy weensy bit. So I did some minor changes to the layout instead. To your right (I am self-appointed tourist guide to my blog now), you can see I've put up a link list of what keeps me busy day in and day out sitting in front of my slowly deteriorating computer. Ooops. My tourist guide career ends early because Svet is now howling like a banshee. Did I just hear sighs of relief? Hah! Just wait till tomorrow, you.

*Just in case you're wondering who Rebecca Bloomwood is, get out of your hole and read Sophie Kinsella's books, for the love of Adam and Eve.

Frequent Visitors/Top Entrecard Droppers of December

A New Year. I should start it by thanking the people who have constantly showed support by reading what I type in here almost religiously, so frequent that stifling a yawn has been a mastered art for them. Hehe. There's my ever loyal friend, Pehpot who, I am confident, has read every single one of my posts (because she is a fan of Svet. tee hee), and who is only rivaled by Honie when it comes to commenting. Sterndal should also be mentioned, being always a welcome name in my chatbox. She is always dropping by to make her presence known and leave nice messages.

Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing (yet) who visits my site through LinkReferral, and there are so many of them! I honestly think they constitute like 50% of my visitors. And then there are also the Entrecard droppers. I would just like to thank the following Entrecard users who dropped their card here at RandomWAHMThoughts the most last December:

Filipino Zinergy

Ruth's Creations

Pensive Thoughts


Work at Home Mom Revolution



Crimson Heavens

Thomas Web Links

Chic & Sassy Designs

I think that's about it. If you have been a constant visitor and I failed to mention you in this post, please feel free to hurl your meanest curse at me for being such a forgetful A-hole. But to all you guys who have visited my site, really, you are a love.

Wrapping 2008 Up

I think this would be the ideal first post for the new year. How have I been this past year, you ask. Well, for starters, I have not exactly been an angel this year. I'm bitchy and paranoid most of the 365 days that passed. But please know that I was only pushed by circumstances to be that way. Did I just saw you sneer? Tee hee. Seriously, my heart and soul screams for me to be good, but alas, not many of the things that happened to me this year allowed me to do that, considering that last year was supposed to be a favorable year for me (I was born Year of the Rat).

BUT, there's a big but here. Although I would have been the last in the list of the candidates for Nicest Person of 2008, I still got my fair share of blessings. My daughter Svet is one. Born May of 2008, she was my biggest gift I got last year, arguably the greatest I have or will ever get. Then I got this work at home job which is a great opportunity for someone who hates to leave her child everyday (in order to become the slave of some stupid jerk) as much as I do. Then my mom has been incredibly patient with my attitude problem this year, proving over and over again how amazingly lucky I am to have her as a mother. She's turning 47 three days from now, btw, and I am still in the process of wracking my muddled brain for something suitable to give her. Yes, I know. I am the worst daughter ever.

Come to think of it, I might not be half as unlucky last year as I first thought. I mean, I know there are people who have fared worse last 2008 than I have. Okay, now I am feeling guilty. Not such a good thing to feel on the first day of a fresh new year. I think I'll just focus on three wonderful celebrations today: my dad's 52nd birthday, my daughter's 8th month here on earth, and the first day of 2009 which signals that I have been given by God yet another year to enjoy life. And that I intend to do. Life is short, after all. One can't have too many precious memories to make with one's family, agree?

Thanks for taking time to read all my ramblings. You know I will continue doing this unless Congress passes a law prohibiting bloggers to publish nonsense. But even then I'll still find a way to write my thoughts down. I will be unstoppable. Haarr!!! I hope you all have a great start to a new year! Happy 2009 everyone! Greetings from Kaye, Paul and Svet :)
