emma; only girl in the world

Turn The Page

Since Idol season is over (for me), I've decided to change layouts/moodtheme/icons/userinfo. The thing is, I'm really interested in switching styles, but I happen to suck at trying to figure out how to make the sidebar in flexible squares work out.


Alas, I failed in that area. No worries though, I've always been drawn to the simplicity of The Boxer. One day, I shall conquer that crazy layout. In the meantime, I shall indulge myself and my current obsession with Daniel Henney and Spring Waltz. I'm back to episode 4 again, except this time, I am armed with SUBTITLES! Definitely so much better. I have yet to fix my icons and the userinfo, but all in good time.

I watched The Da Vinci Code movie last weekend and contrary to what all the critics have to say, I actually liked it. I wouldn't pay to watch it again in the cinema, but I would definitley buy it on DVD. I have to say at first i was against Tom Hanks playing Langdon, but throughout the movie, he definitely proved why he got the role.

Then again, I'm no critic, so I'm so easy to please.

5 Days till _lexizzle comes home!!!

Seriously, I didn't even think he would be able to come home thanks to the hullaballo at JetStar. Thank goodness that's over.

And a HUMONGOUS thanks to Niq and Tita Letty for the autographed-books-to-be. I am a HUGE Meg Cabot fan and I read her blog religiously. And apparently, she was at the same Book Fair that Niq was in. So gorgeous cousin actually gets autographed books for me!!! Sweeet!!!!

Squee!!! ♥

Try Harder Next Time, Brit

I have to admit that at one point in my life, I actually adored Britney Spears. Recently though, things have been a little iffy around her. For me, it all started when she broke up with Justin Timberlake. Seriously, after that, I just lost it. Then she married Jason Alexander, divorced him and actually married K-Fed and had a baby, and now is pregnant again. Collapse )

I for one, know I can't be a mom. Today, I went with my little siblings to go buy their school shoes. I actually liked buying school shoes when I had to. Yes, there isn't much variety when it comes to black leather shoes with a heel that can't go past 1 inch (thanks to "strict" high school rules), but I really had fun. I don't think my siblings were quite the same.

Props to my mom for actually being really patient with them. The shoe is either too small, too big, or the style doesn't suit them. I don't blame them for being picky though -- you might as well buy something you like. I just can't handle having to do that every single year. I just have no patience for it. And kids = patience.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Britney (though being really tortured by the press), shouldn't take things too hard. Yeah, she needs to improve, but it'll take time. It is her first baby after all. I'm not defending her, I guess I just feel for her. Good luck on the second kid though. By then, she won't have any more excuses for dropping her baby. Till Britney's next frontpage.
