Lazy Lazy Me

Joe Normal
13 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 34% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions. You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.

I'd say there's a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.


If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback!

Also, you might want to check out some of my other tests if you're interested in any of the following:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Professional Wrestling

Love & Sexuality

Blogger - Helloooo~~ Anyone~~~~???

While reading this blog, found this song. Don't know if anyone will actually come here and read this and listen to it. Anyway, here it goes.
This band from UK makes it,

powered by ODEO


I started a blog which nobody read.
When I went to work I blogged there instead.
I started a blog which nobody viewed it might be in cash but topics include....
George bush is a evil moron
What's the story with revolving doors.
I am in love with the girl that doesn't know I exist.
Nobody hates preppies any more.

- Musical Interlude -

I started a blog. But nobody came.
No issues were raised. No comments were made.
I started a blog which nobody read.
I'll admit it wasn't that great. But if you must know here is what is said...
100 of my favourite albums.
200 people I can't take.
400 movies I would like to recommend.
10 celebrities, four of whom I might assassinate.

- Musical Interlude -

I started a blog. I sent you the link.
I wanted the world to know what I think.
I started a blog but when I read yours it made me forget what I had started mine for.

Jeff Cheung - Be Your Man (Mandarin)

While reading some blog during work time, (yes, I spent about 8 hours a day to read blogs all over the world.) (what 8 hours? you don't work 8 hours a day. =_=) I read about this song. So first thing to do after work, I found this song and listen to it. OMG, it's really touching and no wonder it's called the "the most romantic marriage proposal song of year 2006". Since I heard that there is a MV (Music Video) for it, so I go over to YOUTUBE and look for it. Here it goes:

If you don't understand Mandarin, too bad. I tried to make a translation of the lyrics, but I don't know how to translate the 2nd line. Oh well. Anyone wanna give it a try? (I did give it a try, but it sound so ridiculous, so...)

Sunshine Girls - Cloudy day today?!

Just heard this on the news while driving to work today, that the Sunshine girls usually appear in the newspaper, the "Toronto Sun", is covered by an Ad today. The company said it's just a glitch that the Sunshine girls picture got replaced by an Ad. But the rumors are saying that the Sunshine Girls are gone for good. No reason were given.
Sunshine girls has been inside every copy of Toronto Sun for the past 35 years. If this is the first time that the Sunshine girl is out, I'm sure it's a day to remember. Even if this is really a glitch and Sunshine girls will come back tomorrow, today's paper still worth a note in the books. Especially today is a cloudy day.
(It's too bad that our office doesn't have a copy of Toronto Sun.)
(I checked on Toronto Sun's website and the Sunshine girl for "Today" isn't really that good.)

Tubing? Are you trying to Kill yourself!?

Going to camping this weekend. Should be fun, and relax. But the sky are still grey as if it's gonna rain again. PLEASE~ Don't rain please~

Beside the normal things to do. (I thought we don't really do stuff.) My friend told me we are going to do "Tubing". As usual I didn't look at the web link he provided, I went on Google and try to see what it is. Ha?! How come the first few results are all from Government or some News saying Tubing is dangerous?! Wait, I thought this camping trip was to relax and help me gain more experience on Lazyness. I didn't know I have to risk my life for it. WHAT?! It'll be pulled by a motorized boat? Extreme Sports!!! HA?! It goes up and down too??? OMG~

(Well, I never like to do any water sports anyway. Why? Because I don't really know how to swim. It's not like I will scream or goes crazy once I fall into the water. But I'm not those who can swim freely and worry free. Sounds kind of it?)

Well, the scariest of all is "you should only goes as high as you willing to fall." I don't wanna die. Not that I'm afraid of height, but let's not try something that might involve me falling...ok? How about we try something else? Let's get a fishing license, and go fishing for fun sounds really good for me now. =_= We don't have to do some extreme sports when we are not ready. The more I read about this, I found a picture of the actual thing. (See below) Damn, it's even more extreme than wakeboard. FINE, how about we do some water skiing and we call it a deal? :)

Now that's really extreme isn't it? So I decided to talk to my friend and see if I can change his mind about this. To my surprise, he replied "What?! It's nothing, I tried it before and it's really safe." HELLO?! SAFE?! I'm having a hard time to even say it's not dangerous, and you call it safe? Are you out of your mind? Ok, I click on the link as he saying how it's safe and such and how someone got injured last time...Fine, let's see how it will make me feel safer. O

k...So this is the tubing we are gonna do? What happen to the other one? But after all, it's still a water sport, should still take full cautions when we do this.

(It took me 32 minutes to write this blog, while at work.)

ICQ, the forgotten.

When was the last time you use ICQ? I guess alot of people are like me, haven't use it for over a year. (or more?) last version I used was 4.0? Hated the lite version. Those Xtra stuff were so annoying. Now it's 5.1 (just updated it) and the Xtra thing is IN and don't seems to be allow you to remove it. Oh well, may be I will try find out how to remove it or at least get it out of my sight.

Well, I have total number of 368 contacts. Wow, that's alot (to me, I know someone who has over 1000 and had to open a new account just to sort out the people on the list.) It's true that I don't talk to all of them often enough. But at least when I was active in various stages of my life, I did talk to most of people on the list...most of them daily, and some less often was only because we are in different time zone(s).

Talk about time zone(s). I remember that I used to live by the GMT+8 to GMT+12, always chatting with people in that time zone, while I'm living in the GMT-5 time zone. Yes, from 13-17 hours difference than a normal person would live by here in GMT-5. Pretty crazy huh? That's how I wasted my life...hahaha...

Back to ICQ. I was once very proud of my user number, since it's so easy to remember. (ok ok, it's only easy for ME to remember, don't think anyone else really cares~) I even tried to contact the phone company to see if I can get my user number to be my phone number. Too bad they don't allow you to choose your own number (well...not all 7 digit). And I don't want to pay $30 a month to get a 1-800 number (or 1-899 nowadays?). So that's just a dream until they starts to use the same first 3 digit code in phone list...when will that be? (rumors about you can transfer your cell phone numbers between companies sometime this winter, well, rumors...)

Ok, really back to ICQ. Why does it crash so often? It actually crash more than windows itself. Well, I don't know, they usually dies together, so I can't really tell which one is the murder here in this murder/suicide case. (or it's a gang war? But I'm not the cop, I don't want them dead!)
Did ICQ ever have any major improvement to it's core? I mean, their search for user still sucks.
And for some reason, it doesn't stay connected very well. While everything else works fine, ICQ will drops out of connection and die. (Well, hangs there forever means dead to me, don't you think?)

Support for Chinese. Most of the time during chat is alright. But on everything else it doesn't work all the time. And usually when you really wanted it to work, it fails. (ain't everything else in life are like that too?) I guess I better stop picking on it's fault, after all, ICQ is a chat program(??) and if does that well, that's enough.

Oh, if you are one of those people who still use (or only use) ICQ as your main communication program with your friends and family, you can ignore this.

Still "Public Service"...

Well, the Ad above still showing some Public Service Announcement. But finally it's in English now. And I guess the reason for it showing some PSA instead of some money making Ads, was simply because my blog entries has nothing "sell".
I should update my blog with something that can generate some money, doesn't matter how little it is. (Well, if I can get like $100 a month that would be great, but unless I have a few thousands viewer per day, that's just a dream.)
(To some, it may not be a dream, because their blog has 15000+ viewer per day. So even with $0.01 per 100 view, they would still make more than $40 a month.)

Blogger at work - Picture storage

I was working on this blog last night and testing with functions at the beta blogger. As you can see I can now make my Title appear in the "case" it should.
Other than that, I still can't get the google Adsense thing to work. well, at least not on the main page. If you goes into the entry, the Ad on the top would work in English. But the one on main page just won't budge, it has to stay with the chinese trivial questions. may be I have to reset my Adsense thing? I don't know. Good to know that the one on the bottom of the page works fine.
Then I move on to work on my other blog some place else. In that blog, I posted 2 entries and worked on a third. Also tested a little on Flickr.
I realize that Blogger doesn't have it's own picture storage space (or does it?) and Flickr is actually a Yahoo! company. Does google has their own storage space? Or is there any good FREE sites that offer more than 20MB bandwidth? (not that I'll use it up anytime soon, but if I can have more choice, why not?)

what makes you think I speak / write Chinese?

Gosh, this Adsense thing is really getting on to my nerves...(??is that right??)
I don't think anyone can find a word of Chinese on this blog now, well, at least not the public can see! So why would this Adsense thing keeps on giving me Chinese Ad? I'm not expecting it would give me anything really related to the blog entries here. (only 1 English entry.) but it should show me a basic / default / sample Ad that is totally in English, Right?
but no, I don't get that and I just keeps on getting this Google search ad, a "fun" trivial(??) question...STOP IT! I don't want it...damn...

you may say that if your setup has chinese, it could be the reason why you get that Chinese trivial question. but NO! in preview / setting screen, the Ad above the blog entry would be an english Ad with info about apartment. Everything works except the content...

oh's 2:52pm now, better go back to work (REALLY) and continue this blog thing tonight.

Blogger sucks (or is it "just" me?)

I found out when comparing Blogger to other Blog service that I am using right now, Blogger is not doing so well. (then again, it could be me. Probably because I didn't spent any time on "discovering" what Blogger has to offer.)

#1, I still can't get it to link up this blog to my G-mail account. so everytime I login now, I have to login to both to see if I can get it to work but as usual, it won't work. I don't know if it's the problem of this stupid machine I'm having at work (P-III running NT4) or it's just that I did something wrong on link-up the accounts.

#2, I don't like the fact that each time I post a new entry, I have to manually update the whole blog. My Gosh! Do I have to put a stamp on it and mail it out? geez. can't you update it by yourself?

#3, everytime I'm in settings, I have to "open" a new window to just look at my Blog. and when I'm in my blog, I can't login directly(no login box), I have to go to the main page to do that. Is there a easier way? =_=

#4, oh yeah, almost forgot, I probably wouldn't use a english title for my blog if I didn't HAVE to. As you can see that my english isn't any where near "fair", may be just a little bit better than some ESL student. (may be I always will be an ESL person, come to think of it, YES! I'm an ESL person.) the reason why I use engish for title is because if I put a Chinese title, the page won't load at all for some people or it will load whenever it feels like to on most machine. (doesn't matter you use Chinese version of XP or you using plain old english XP.)

#5, more about that title, I did put in "Canchi" as title before, but it will only shows up as "CANCHI". what is the point of having Upper-case and Lower-case? If I wanted to use ALL UPPER-CASE LETTER, I CAN PRESS THE "CAPS LOCK" KEY AND TYPE IT LIKE THAT! but that is not good for the eyes and I don't like the looks of it. can someone do something about it? while "you" at it, please make everything uni-code, so I can use Chinese (or some other language when I feel like to) as title.

#6, the comment entering page, why can't it be in the same page as the blog entry? it's not that hard to have a javascript editing box (or some other tech. thingy) in the same page sitting there ready for people to enter comment, RIGHT? Actually in the "new" page you can see the blog entry and other comment(s) that are already in there for this entry, while you type your own little comment. so put that in the original page is just a few clicks away, right?

(oh my god, it goes on and on...)
#7, is there really a number 7? I don't know, can't really spent too much time at work to blog. I have already spent the whole morning on viewing blogs. and now is 1:43pm. I should get back to work (or more web-surfing).

if I do have time or remember, I will come back to and type a chinese version of this. Because the chinese IME always makes noise when it prompt me for list of words or error. and it's on "System Speaker"!!! (how many years I haven't heard any "noise" from the system speaker?)
so if I go full speed to type something in Chinese, people (I guess only my boss would worry) would think that my system is going to explode or something. Since I work at the airport, let's not do that during September. (can someone please tell me how to stop the internal speaker? I don't really want to open the case to "unplug" it, but if it's the only way to go...)

by the time I finish, it's already 2:02pm.

Canchi or Canchichi

No, this post isn't really about my internet-name.
As pervious post, I was think of my username and it took me ages to find out the password. Once I'm in, I started to think why would I use "" instead of ""
so I tried and type in the "canchi", and as I expected, the name is in use.
Fine. As I'm about to leave (there isn't much to see there anyway.), I notice the date of the entry and BOOM. They had it on the same day as my blog's first entry?! (deleted, but I do remember it.) And they also haven't update it since?!
Well, can't do anything about that. I guess I just have to stick with this.
