Life’s getting better, isn’t it?

And thanks to TL Anj for this sweet temptation: cinnamon rolls with butterscotch toppings. It’s not my comfort food but I appreciate the thought. People around me are so nice so there are still lots of things to be thankful about. Yes, the feeling of loss will always be there but I am still happy because those things have already served their purpose. Sometimes, things don’t turn out the way we want them to be, but still… everything happens for a reason. I may keep asking why, plus other questions in the back of my head and a feeling of remorse… but as time goes by, I will find the answers.

Professionally Slashed!

I thought it was over… but after cleaning up my room and arranging some stuff, I’ve seen my slashed bag again – unusable. I just purchased it last October of this year and I love this one so much but there’s nothing more I can do about it. Grrrrr!


I know uploading these pictures will keep reminding me about this misfortune but I want this to be a warning as well to everyone who drops by here.

I have so much more to say about my impotent fury and worsening sentiments but Lala negates everything. Stay tuned and get acquainted with my new kid!

It’s All About The Sentimental Value…

To be honest, I don’t know how to start this post. I am depressed, hopeless and sad. My Christmas did not turn out good, well… it was the worst and I don’t want to go into details. The second blow just happened earlier on our way to a birthday party. My bag got slashed and my phone and coin purse were stolen. It’s the same old feeling of losing items with great sentimental value… that familiar strong surge of emotions… That phone is not much of cash worth, that’s N3100 but it played a very important role in my current relationship, not just as a tool of communication but as a proof of our undying passion. That phone is a digital journal of my love life. I don’t want to go over the same litany again… notes, messages, notes, messages, notes, messages and all. I don’t want to, but I can’t help it. No words can comfort my aching heart. Nothing can make me feel better. No one.

Does God know the sandwich effect, too? I guess so. If He doesn’t want me to be lonely, then what do these things mean?! Gosh, I am not questioning the one above, my faith can’t be shattered. It’s just the turn of events leads me to hatred against mankind. I wanna curse those bad guys to death. This is not the first time that it happened to me. I lost my ASUS phone the same way on that same place. I am lucky though, I did not encounter those criminals face to face. I am always carrying a knife anyway.

Oh, the sandwich effect? Just before this incident, I was so happy for getting the first item on my Christmas Wishlist – laptop. Then boom! I lost the precious phone. Plus almost two thousand pesos of cash and USB drive on my coin purse. Ouch. Lesson learned. Coin purse is strictly for coins. Solely. Exclusively. I was having the most depressing moments of my life. I celebrated Christmas away from home, first Christmas without grandma, no grand celebration, no drinking of beers, no parties, just heartaches, headaches, nausea and more. Trust me, it’s the worst. And maybe, just maybe, the teddy bear I just received today is the consolation for all these negative feelings. *sigh* Extreme happiness then extreme loneliness then a little happiness. Nothing has been neutralized.

That’s the most I can share. There’s more but I ought to tell it only to someone.

They’re all gone… I’ll get used to it… but it will take time. T_T

By the way, I have uploaded the images of my “professionally-slashed” bag here.

HTML Codes To Show HTML Codes

Sounds crazy? Yeah, redundant but you probably know what I’m talking about. It actually took me a little bit longer to show the HTML codes on the “Grab A Badge” coding without using text area functions. Finally, I was able to figure out that you have to change “<" with "&lt;" and ">” with “&gt;”.

While posting a blog entry under the Edit HTML view, instead of typing:
<a href=”http://www.wordyliz.com/”>Spread the W.O.R.D</a>

code it like this:
&lt;a href=”http://www.wordyliz.com/”&gt;Spread the W.O.R.D</a&gt;

To make it easier for you, you may use QUICK ESCAPE TOOL to automatically do the conversion.

After:

Blogkori suggested adding this code on the main layout just before ]]>:

pre
{
background:#efefef;
border:1px solid #A6B0BF;
font-size:120%;
line-height:100%;
overflow:auto;
padding:10px;
color:#000000 }
pre:hover {
border:1px solid #efefef;
}
code {
font-size:120%;
text-align:left;
margin:0;padding:0;
color: #000000;}
.clear { clear:both;
overflow:hidden;
}

But since I don’t like semi-textarea appearance (with scrollbars), I just ignored it. This makes use of <pre> and </pre>.

You may also ask how to make &gt; appear on this post. Simple, since it would be converted back to >, use amp; instead of & in &gt;.

HTML Color Codes: Match It With Your Theme!

Nothing is more appealing than a well-balanced color combination and an organized layout. Pale hues and bright colors should be taken into consideration prior to each use. Yes, simplicity is the key, but being a little mindful and artistic by mixing and matching color codes and names can enhance your blog’s appearance… as in big time! Looks count so feed your visitor’s imagination with a relaxing atmosphere or exciting scenes through a dynamic color scheme. Let us start with the links.

This is the part of HTML codes you have to edit on your Blogger’s Layout Pane:


Change them into the colors of your choice. You may refer to this HTML Color Codes and Names when modifying them.


There’s a complete color code chart that you can use but the link colors for this blog fall under this spectrum. My all time favorite: HOT PINK!

rgb(255, 102, 102) = #F660AB = hot pink


And here’s an interactive way of choosing LINK COLORS: (Layout>Font and Colors)


Let those colors do the trick to create a wonderful sight… rather, site. Keep blogging!
