The sweet flesh of this fruit

“According to Caribbean folk wisdom (especially in Jamaica), girls learn the art of kissing by eating the sweet flesh of this fruit, also it is said that if a girl finds two seeds then they’ll have twins”

Taken from Wikipedia

Side Note:
I don’t want twins by now I could have sextuplets if that was true. Thanks God it is just folk wisdom.

Belated Gift.

Some months ago I started making plushies and cushions just for the fun of it and to see if I could make some hand sewing of my own. I discovered that yeah I could do that. I kept making some until the month of april that I made a piggy. After that I stop.

On July my sister had her birthday and I started making her a cushion but never finished it cause I didn't had time. That week I also went on vacation and I couldn't take the materials with me to finish it. Later on I regretted that big time and wish I did took them with me.

I think I will start doing them again since I just finally got to finish the Paypal account issue I had to resolved. I spent $13 dollars on new felt [saw many colors and got them cause some are hard to find later on]. I hope that you get to see more of my inventions and boredom momentums.

Here is the cushion I made for my sister as a birthday gift. A belated one but still it is a gift. I have to explain that the design are composed by the letter "Y" since her name starts with that. Then you have a flower on the corner there and some dots around it.

Things I Learned: September 2008

The month of September have been good, bad and well many things. Here I will share the "highlights" of the things I learned these past few days.
  1. Remember that the people that follow you on Google Reader arent able to see or notice if you made changes on your blog. [@mrcos thanks for this side note]. Therefore you should somehow inform them about the changes you made in order to be appreciated.
  2. Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers are great. At least the Grilled Basil Chicken and the Grilled Chicken Marinara are awesome. I even ate the broccoli and I didn't ate broccoli before in my life.
  3. Drinking water does help on diets a lot. I finally got on one and it is working so far. All thanks to the water and the commitment to it. Eat healthy and some exercise should do the trick for what you need.
  4. Drinking water will also make you go more frequently to the bathroom. Now you know.
  5. I don't like to work alone the whole week. Still it is good cause it lets me blog and surf on the net as long as I want to since I'm using my laptop at work there is no problem.
  6. Pay attention to the weather . Some might worry more of a hurricane but forget the damn tropical storms.  Which with some rain could be even worst. Note: Puerto Rico pay attention to this one.
  7. It's cool to have secret or personal conversations with hidden messages that only the parts involved knows what the hell it is all about. Lovely and interesting. 
  8. If you asked for the cards/coupon for the Digital TV transition issue in 2009 before june you are literally fucked up if you live in Puerto Rico. We have two in our house but the stores here couldn't afford the demand of the product so now the cards expired and we can't use it. Thank you mega-stores. [if someone knows about this please do leave comment I want to use at least one of the cards].
  9. The Instinct phone for Sprint seems cool but is too darn expensive. $99 a month? Hell no thank you. Shall go with Rumor, Palm or Blackberry instead. 
  10. You have to learn when to say no, when to stop and when to say yes. You can't go on saying everything at the same time. You and the people around you will get confused and that WILL bring you trouble.Thrust me on this one.
  11. Blip.fm is AWESOME!!! It is like twitter but for music and it does update automatically to twitter when you post it. Have found great music to share with other DJs. Yes you get to be called a DJ on Blip.fm since you are the one choosing the songs to  be played on your station. People gives you props when they like your tunes. Listen to my Station.
  12. If at the place that you work you have to sign in with a firm the hours/days that you work. DO it. if you don't you wont get paid. Luckily for me I am getting paid double this week cause I forget to put my working days/hours on the signing sheet. So I will have two checks this weekend. YEY!
  13. Discovered a few new music for me: Alpha, Chikinki, Trentemoller, Royksopp, Nouvelle Vague, Bread, IMonster and Emiliana Torrini.
  14. Also Re-Discovered some music for example didnt knew Rolling Stones had answers to my questions like You can't always get what you want and Complicated.
  15. Jason Mraz from now on will have a special place in my life with every time I listen to this I will remember good things in my life You and I Both and Plane.
  16. Wilson Pickett is a singer. Don't ask he just sings. What he sings well check it out [link]. He was like James Brown clone [ha ha]
  17. Sometimes you connect with some people to a point you never ever expected. This might give you an insight of what you are really capable to do and accept from others and yourself. Just remember that you will always learn something.
  18. Friendship before flesh. ALWAYS!!!!
  19. I miss the rainy days of last week. Really bad.

After the end.

Before the end I was happy
Before the end I had no doubt.
Now I have nothing 
After the end.


An appearance... where...?

I am certainly happy to find out by my Flickr Stats that there is people using my art on their blogs or web pages. As silly as it sounds I didn't knew we had stats count there. [Ha ha!]

Makes me feel better to see that people can relate to what you do and feel. Most of them have no idea of what I was going thru or why those things were made or inspired by still they choose it to represent their feelings. That is one of the amazing things of art. That things can have millions of meanings from people to people. Still with all those differences it pulls us together.

Thanks to all of them for enjoying my works that much to put them to represent your writings/articles and whatever you used it for it is all good. Thanks also for linking back the works that speak great things of you guys.

In the shadows with you

I am starting to like Alpha very much. I think the band have been way too much underestimated or forgotten for way too much time. This song even when the name is Elvis I just cant get over the song.

Sometimes we talk and mess up things. Then you have songs like this one that says everything that you might need to say. In a good simple way it haves all you keep for yourself. Splendid music and lyric. Just check this lyrics. When you have something like this there is nothing else need to be said. You just need to listen and say whatever... fuck the world. I have to confess that I myself can't ever say fuck the world in this matter cause my world does matters to me.

Look into the dark night
I’m dancing in the shadows with you
There’s a world waiting out there for us to see
...
And beneath the starlit blanket
Dreams are made of solid gold
I just wanna be the one to hold you there
When you’re cold

With so many pictures on the walls
Of five billion minds
We just need to take them out sometime
Y’know and start living the good times
...
Decent dreams and pictures make you airborne
When you close your eyes

That’s why i wanna fly with you tonight
No one else, no one else can make the flight like you
So I wanna fly with you tonight
And no one there, oh lord oh lord (?)

I’m obviously indebted to you
By the way you make me feel
Ice cold warm heart
Is always gonna be able to turn a dream to real
I say
I’m touching all horizons with you
I got my sights on solid gold
I feel superhuman baby
Y’know like the way the marvel make man feel in their shows
Now check out what my mind say
Check out what my words say
Check out all my actions
I just want your satisfaction because

Youknow cause I wanna fly with you tonight
Oh no one else, no one else can make the flight like you
So i wanna fly, oh, with you tonight
And make dreams, make a dreams a real life
I can oh

You got to take my hand lady
Oh yeah
Then you’ll understand what i’m saying
And you know we gonna find the ideal destination
I say I say
I, I wanna fly with you tonight

Firefly... music to what?

Firefly. That is the real name of a song that I have on my music list every were but it doesn't have that title. When I downloaded the file the title said music to f**k to [read the bottom of page] I was like impressed by the name so I downloaded it. After obtaining the song and listening to it I have to say that the title is justified.

The song is so soothing, mellow and tripy. Totally takes you on this unique trip thru emotions, feelings and desires. After seeking for some time I found some info pointing to Portishead cause it also said it was from them. That fact was weird in a way cause it could sound some how like them but the voice doesn't fit with them. I gave up on the music creator hunting. Yesterday I looked up for it and heard it. Told myself I have to find how sings the damn song cause it cant be Portishead and the title can't be music to f**k to.

I just remembered the part were the singer says  "-I walk the way the wind blows" so i did a lyric search and "-Eureka!" I found out the info. The band is Alpha [they are from the Bristol, UK circa 90's] and are from the same period of Portishead and Massive Attack reason why it was labeled under them. The song name is Firefly not music to f**k to thanks God. I also finally read the whole lyric which is amazing.

It was originally released in 1997 in the cd Come from heaven. The original version is very different from the version that I heard still it is good the voice is the same mellow tranquil voice. The voice of the song is provided by Martin Barnard. Later in 1998 they release the cd Pepper: Remixes and Rare Tracks which contain the version that most every body loves named Firefly [Reciever Remix] with the same guy singing. The re-mixer name is well Reciever [go figure] he works in other tracks with Alpha too.

Yes I did my homework, thank you.

I will Fix You.

Every time I listen to the song Fix You I end up crying. I just love the way it takes over me. Breaking me up while listening to it. And people still don't believe in the power of music and a good writing. The lyric is so amazing on its own by herself that is impressive. I have been there far too long. Still I don't get over this phase of trying to fix myself and I just can't. That is what makes me cry all the time when alone. Alone I break. I might seem tough to some people but i am not even strong. I sometimes wish I could run and don't stop running. Other days I wish I could cry a river and by doing so everything would go away. But no nothing happens, nothing works. Meh!

It should be illegal to write a song this good. It should be. I always liked Coldplay but with this one they nearly kill me. Then you see the video he stars walking around randomly then you get to see him face this crowd in a concert with all this lights and the people screaming. The feelings get all fucked up when this one comes up in my Zune. Besides Today is raining since early in the afternoon. Cloudy all day. Just the perfect timing to come up and push the human button in me. Reminds me that I am still alive that I still have a heart and a soul. That I can't do things by myself and that I need people to help me on the healing/fixing issue.

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Alone I break trying to fix myself. I just need someone to tell me I will fix you. Would you fix me?

Weekly Report: 14 - 20 Sep 2008

Diet Weekly Report: 14 - 20 Sep 2008

Like I said on the post The thing with diets I am going to post here my weekly report on this matter. 

I started with 215 pounds and this week I lost 3.8 pounds. It might not be a lot for you guys but for me it is huge. Meaning that if I stick to the plan I can loose about 5 pounds a week and therefore loose 20 pounds a month. That would be awesomely great. My final goal for now is to reach the 165 pounds.

Sticking to water have helped a lot. Drank 232 .oz . I will try to get close to the 400 .oz a week. I still need to start the 30-45 minutes walks. I might start that tomorrow. That might help me even more to stay on the right track. My weekly reports are from Sunday to Saturday. So far it have been easy to keep track of everything and I hope it stays that way for a long time so that I wont be attacked on XMas season. HA!!

I have a profile page [ImReavel] at the SparkPeople page so you go visit and also check there the fitness and food charts. If you are planning on getting fit for whatever reason I do recommend you the page. Great people and easy to use. You just have to commit to it and be honest when you fill the blanks provided.

Weekly Stats:
Weight: 211.5
Lost: 3.08 #
Calories: 8,305
Water: 232 .oz [29 vasos 8 .oz]
Exercise: none [jaja]

Anyways here are the charts:

Like if I am someone else.

I should have done this post earlier. I fear it could come out wrong so I stepped back from the laptop and here I am. Still figuring out how to see clearly they way things work. I might know too much information and use it in my favor, but what for. Right? I am figuring this out. I am sorry for what I have done. It is time to abort all this before it could get all wrong. 

Every time this phrase makes more sense: 
" I learned there are some things that are better left unshared and unsaid but oh! How do those things better left unshared and unsaid can hurt us! "
Didn't belive that simple words said out of the blue could carry such a heavy statement. So true, so damn true. I have a headache since this morning. My morning didn't start well at all either. The boss didn't paid me. Will have to wait for next week to get paid. My water drinking habit almost died today. I want to drink something else. To be honest. Completely honest I have been going to work but I haven't done a thing from work. I stay in front of the laptop staring at it. Like waiting for some answer of an unknown question.

Shit! I feel like crying still no tears come out. Always the same story. Can't show the feeling. I have to stop playing the game. Cause this isn't a game it is life. People that could get more affected. Happiness can be found in a moment and can be lost in a second. Therefore I am here to build towards my own happiness I want others to find theirs and keep life they way it is. I can't change what doesn't want to be change.

All this makes no sense I know but I had to write this down. I don't know what I am doing what is driving me to do this. Sure thing it is not love. It is solitude that once again drag me to another of her games. Simple as that. Loneliness, time, procrastination, and a heart that wants to heal and listen to what others have to say. Always a learning experience and this is my second test. I wont fail I wont get people carried away. To whom it might concern I might be or sound over dramatic.  But when you have so things that say warning. Just stop what you are doing read the sign and back off.  

Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

Tough, you think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I...that's alright
We're the same soul
I don't need...I don't need to hear you say
That if we weren't so alike
You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk
I'm sick of it all
Can - you - hear - me - when - I -
Sing, you're the reason I sing
You're the reason why the opera is in me...

Where are we now?
I've still got to let you know
A house still doesn't make a home
Don't leave me here alone...

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
Sometimes you can't make it
The best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Totally Absolut

[click image for full view] 
I used to collect bottles of many kinds. They had to be different, have a special thing on it. Anything that called my attention would make it to my collection. I had to stop since I had like two boxes of them. All empty bottles.

Absolut Vodka bottle is one of those bottles that I never got to add to my collection. I always wanted one. I always loved their bottle and their ad campaigns. They always go the extra limit. Using all art in all its expresion to represent its greatness. Always clever, always simple and always avant garde.

Last year they came out with the Absolut 100. This new vodka is 50% alcohol and will surely give you a kick when you drink it. Like i said they always have this great concepts for their products. This time they went even further. They just made the bottle black with silver typos/lettering which is a great combination always. They also made a video which is very well made. Great music and animations.

The animations are part of an exclusive event campaign developed by K-MB and NoMoreSleep. Animation by Timo Boese/Lowerground and David Kamp made the sound (presentation edit version). The clip is shown nationwide in Germany at the launchevents on various formats (screens, displays, beamer, pinball machines, etc.) It is all black and white showing messages made with typos, silhouettes of people doing different activities, having fun enjoy their lives.

The thing with diets.

I have just started some kind of diet. Nothing fancy nothing hard to do. I just eat less and drink water. Last time I went to the doctor she said I had to quit sodas or I would get my kidneys all fucked up. So after that speech I think it was time for me to do something.

I also feel more tired. I have gained like 20# that I thought I never could but emotions and things get on the way. I don't eat that much but what I eat doesnt get burned or goes away it just build up more and more making me heavier. I remember that I could walk long distance I still can but I am really feeling the weight now. To buy clothing is another story. Sometimes you get so frustrated that it can turn into depression. This is no good.

Other thing that haves me worried is my feet they are starting the get all swollen all of the sudden for no reason and that can not happen. I am too young for that too happen. If you add to all this the family heritage in healthy issues I could say that I am messed up and my healthy issue tree aint good: high blodd pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, high cholesterol, bad circulation on the legs, etc. Most of them thanks to the bad eating habits and genetics too.

To keep track of what I am eating and stuff I am using this excellent website called SparkPeople. This site was recommended to me by Sarai [@Chunkyrican] she haves this great blog called My Weight Loss Journey were she writes about her experience. Very nice and inspiring to me. I got motivated to do all this by her. Anyways, the SparkPeople web helps you out on keeping record of all your process what you eat, exercise, calories all this related to the journey. It is pretty complete easy to handle after you read all the things they offer. It is free which is great. If you are trying to gain or loose weight you should consider visiting the site.

I was thinking of opening a new blog [maybe in wordpress] to just put the dieting process on it but I cant deal with another blog so I will just add the entries here and put a label on it. That will do the work. I dont know if I am going to post this things daily or weekly. Not sure yet. If you are interested you can check the labels later I think. On the post I will include a the daily table of the calories and etc. Will print screen it from the site. If I ever do the other blog you will know or perhaps I shouls keep it private. Mmm note sure yet.

Below are print screen of SparkPeople website.

Dedicatoria

Esto fue una vez parte de una dedicatoria

La vida aparece a la luz de este razonamiento como una larga pesadilla, de la que sin embargo uno puede liberarse con la muerte, que sería, así, una especie de despertar. ¿Pero despertar a qué ? Esa irresolución de arrojarse a la nada absoluta y eterna me ha detenido en todos los proyectos de suicidio. A pesar de todo, el hombre tiene tanto apego a lo que existe, que prefiere finalmente soportar su imperfección y el do­lor que causa su fealdad, antes que aniquilar la fantasmagoría con un acto de propia voluntad. Y suele resultar, también, que cuando hemos llegado hasta ese borde de la desespera­ción que precede al suicidio, por haber agotado el inventario de todo lo que es malo y haber llegado al punto en que el mal es insuperable, cualquier elemento bueno, por pequeño que sea, adquiere un desproporcionado valor, termina por hacerse decisivo y nos aferramos a él como nos agarraríamos desespe­radamente de cualquier hierba ante el peligro de rodar en un abismo.

Fiesta del Empiezo del Café.

Ayer fui con un grupo de amigos a la Fiesta del Empiezo del Café celebrada en el poblado de Castañer en el pueblo de Lares, Puerto Rico. La actividad originalmente estaba pautada para el fin de semana pasado.

Esta es la primera vez que se celebra este Festival. El mismo fue organizado por la nueva Asociación de Productores de Café (APROCAFÉ) para estimular el que más personas se unan durante el inicio de cosecha para evitar que se pierda el grano y de una vez para que el público conozca las variedades de cafés y tuestes disponibles. Luego se cierra la temporada del café con la fiesta del Acabe del Café que anuncia el fin de la cosecha.

Fui a la actividad por varias razones:
  • Para salir de mi casa porque hace tiempo no salia.
  • Aprovechar a ir a una actividad pueblerina aprender y ver algo diferente.
  • Habia pasado por Lares pero nunca habia entrado a Lares.
Datos extras:
  • El poblado de Castañer queda bien adentro del pueblo de Lares es la parte montañosa de dicho municipio. La carretera no es apta para todo el mundo ya que es estrecha y lo que hay a cada lado es jaldas. Lo que si es impresionante es la vista. Es increible. Estas tan algo que se ve toda la ciudad abajo. Las neblinas toman posesion de la montanha y hace una excelente brisa. Aunque el dia estaba nublado no llovio tanto como se esperaba Gracias a Dios aun asi La gente fue y se gozaron la actividad.
  • Draco Cornelius tiene la Hacienda Horizonte y se metio en esto del café. Como fan pues fui a ver de que se trababa todo esto. El Café Draco es muy bueno, fuerte y tiene un aroma exquisito. Lo disfrute y compre para mi casa. Ahora espero que lo muelan. 
  • Mi abuelo cuando llegue a casa se fue en viaje porque le gusto su aroma [decia que ese café es bueno] y lo queria moler en el pilon grande que hay en casa. El tiene café en su patio. No es mucho pero el bregaba con eso y lo tostaba en planchas de zinc en su casa hasta hace menos de 5 años. Tan lindo.
  • En la fiesta del Empiezo del Café hubo obviamente café, sangria, trovadores, musica, comida, bebida, familias, motociclistas, artesania y muchas cosas mas.
  • Las fotos honestamente los llovisnas no ayudaron mucho asi que tome fotos cerca del area del booth del Draco [por ende las mayorias son de ese booth]. A la hora que llegamos ya muchos habian cerrado por cuestion de la lluvia. Llegamos a eso de las 3:oopm
  • La sangria de Tierra Adentro se las recomiendo MUY buena. Trust me on this one.
Nota:
  • En Puerto Rico se celebran MUCHAS fiestas de pueblo; Festival de la China, Festival del Cafe, Festival del Acabe, Festival del mango y de artesania [etc] a lo largo del año. Es bueno que si tienes hijos los lleves desde pequeño para que aprenda a apreciar estas cosas de su pais. Asi no dira cuando grande que no conoce su isla.
  • Si ya usted es mayor mire haga un corillo y salgan a hacer turismo interno. Estoy segura que no has corrido todos los rincones de Puerto Rico y en Puerto Rico siempre hay algo en algun lugar. Despues no digas que no hay nada para hacer.

She is a great climber too. Plays with anything that crosses in front of her or catches her attention. Loves ham lean turkey one. Well here are her new photos in the "jungle".

Pixador protestando por su arte.

Hace unos dias atras en Sao Paulo, Brasil un grupo de 30 pixadores [grafiteros] entraron a la galeria principal de arte urbano en la ciudad llamada Choque Cultural durante la expocision llamada "Pop Revistado" y la invadieron. Escribiendo en sus paredes su protesta y arruinando en su paso todas las obras expuestas alli. Este acto fue en contra del mercadeo, institutonalizacion y domesticacion del arte urbano en dicha ciudad.

La noticia a recorrido el mundo cibernetico por blogs y youtube. Como todo en la vida esto tiene un inicio y una razon ademas de la ya expuesta. Sucede que el organizador de dicha actividad Rafael Guedes Augustaitizn [Rafael Pixobomb] fue expulsado de la Escuela de Bellas Artes de Sao Paulo por un incedente que ocurrio en junio 12 de este año de las misma magnitud. Sus profesores le exigieron hacer unos trabajos mas "artisticos" ya que no consideraban el graffiti como parte del arte y el se nego. El mismo dia de la actividad junto con otros amigos llego a la facultad [paredes, pasillos, oficinas] y la arruino junto con los trabajos del resto del estudiantado el dia de la exposicion.

Yo entiendo el punto del grupo de pixadores y de  hacer ver que se esta comercializando a niveles desorbitantes. Algo que causa contraste todavia porque muchos dicen/creen que su principal idea es la libre expresion, poseer una pared, llevar un mensaje, una protesta, una idea y plasmar tus creencias. Ir encontra de la autoridad para poder expresarte. Han pasado decadas desde que se comenzo y se ha logrado mucho [por ejemplo: llevarlo a las galerias] pero aun queda un grupo que reclama que se debe quedar en la calle donde nacio.

Muchos catalogan esta actitud como algo heroico otros como vandalismo. Muchos dijeron que fue el mejor trabajo de toda la exposicion de la facultad el trabajo mas genuino. Despues de ver un caso como este me pregunto ¿Cuando se cruza la linea entre la libre expresion y el vandalismo? En muchas paginas lo que lei dicen estar a favor y que sigan atacando el "arte burdes". Incluso en un comentario lei ¡Fogo!  [fuego]. El muchacho tiene bien claro su mensaje, sus ideales. Tiene muchos seguidores y personas que le respaldan.

Muchos grafiteros han luchado para entrar a las galerias donde antes todo el graffiti se consideraba vandalismo y algo que no decia nada. No era considerado arte. Ahora que ya al fin estan abriendo las puertas. Cual es la postura actual del arte urbano, callejero y la libre expresion. Evolucionar o seguir en la calle con la libertad y la emocion de plasmar tus ideas aun cuando el mundo va contra de ti. El arte urbano contra el arte de galeria una guerra sin cuartel que nadie sabe donde terminara. Me gustaria saber ¿Que creen los graffiteros a nivel local sobre este asunto? y ¿Estarian dispuestos a llegar a esta situacion solo por el hecho de defender su estilo arte?

Things I Learned: Twitter

As most of you know I am a twitter user for quite some time now [since july 2008]. I will now share the things I have learned while using it.


  1. I have made lots of new friends [most "twittericans" > people from Puerto Rico]. I can't mention all of them but they are good people.
  2. Don't you ever underestimate the power of twitter.
  3. Remember that you only have 140 characters to write. Please use a shorter name if your username haves 10+ characters or more it will take most of the message. [examples: uselessdegree and Freeman_LaFleur] too long names.
  4. If you have a blog you can update your feeds with twitterfeed. That does help people visit your sites but please don't spam.
  5. Twitpic is great tool to share photos with other twitter users. I have learned a lot from twitpic. I have seen what people are doing, how a place look like, what they eat, hang out, work areas well you name it they have it. My twitpic page > http://twitpic.com/photos/reavel
  6. I am using tweetdeck to post my twits. But if you have multiple accounts DO use twitterfox.
  7. At first it is kind of slow and boring cause you have no friends to twit with but once you get around and add people it does become addictive.
  8. Didn't knew there was a site called 12 seconds where you upload 12seconds videos. To my surprise you can do a lot in 12 seconds you just have to be fast.
  9. Using tinyurl will make your linking experience much better since it shortens those long web addresses. 
  10. Yes. Twitter can get you into a lot of problems and confusion. [long story]
  11. You can do your autobiography or make a social experiments like @afreytes did.
  12. Many companies have acquired twitter accounts cause they understood they could harass you even there. Not good but it can happen.
  13. Blocking other annoying twitters makes your life easier and happier.
  14. You get to a point where you could become a stalker without even knowing or noticing it.
  15. If you have a question twit it away people might reply with the answer or something like an answer.
  16. Direct Messages are very helpful and keep personal issues aside.
  17. I have some twits marked as favorites Icon_star_full.
  18. When you answer the question > What you are doing? you have started your own road to perdition on this micro blogging future.
  19. It is pretty user friendly.
  20. I love twitter.
