Share the love: Go there, do that, and buy the t-shirt! (got discount)

In the high-stress, high workload world of the private sector, a giggly fit is sometimes a good thing. And so it was that this afternoon, in reponse to my notifying mr brown of xiaxue’s picture on tonypierce.com, the doyen of singapore bloggers decided to make me choke on my lunch by sending me an MMS of himself with the ‘I’m too sexy for my blog’ expression. I had no recourse but to reciprocate with mine, and in the midst of the best gigglefest I’ve had in a while, we posted and cross-linked and this viral meme (teochew for fast fast) was born.

sexybloggers

Be part of the grober phenomenon! Is simple:

  1. Get a Flickr account if you don’t already have one. It’s free and it’s great.
  2. Take a picture of yourself with the ‘sexyblogger‘ expression, or find one in your archives that comes close.
  3. Post it to your flickr account and tag it with the word ‘sexyblogger’.

These people have already gone and done it (links updated by mr brown).

Some more, there are benefits (just like getting married or serving NS):

As a token of appreciation for all the love (or something to that effect) for XiaXue, effective tomorrow, if you show your “I’m too sexy for my blog” expression at any of LocalBrand’s retailers, you will immediately get a 20% discount on any LocalBrand shirts.*

For retail locations: http://www.localbrand.sg/shops.htm

We may regret doing this someday, but for now, we can’t help but feel the need to be part of this truly strange yet compelling phenomenon. Wear dem LocalBrand shirts in good health!

*This offer is good through the end of March ’05

Channel Newsasia, limpeh faster than you! Don’t say Mr Miyagi never bring you breaking news about the dengue.

Lately, because ST Interactive is now pay-to-view-for-fuck, I’ve found myself actually looking through the print edition to see if I might have missed out important stuff by not touching the newspapers. And as much as I’d like to deny it, I have.

Today’s (Monday) read was scintillating stuff like PM Lee’s spiel about the elite. What about that, huh? I was like, reading it and reading it, and it was going on and on about the inclusive elite and like, what role they have in like, y’know, society? Then the classifieds dropped out onto the floor and I was like, whoa, Asia Pacific Travel got package deal to Hong Kong 3 Days Free & Easy fr $278!

In other, more important news, I’d like to suck up to Xiaxue now and tell youse all that she was on the New Paper last Saturday, somewhere between the 139 pages of soccer results, previews and analyses (and ‘health club’ ads). Then tonight, on my Bloglines feeds, I found that Tony Pierce of tonypierce.com had filched a pic of her and pasted it on his very popular blog (though nowhere as popular as xiaxue’s). This girl is going places. Don’t ever steal her taxi again! Then again, at the rate she’s going, she’s not gonna need taxis no more, you public transport bitches, you been warned!

No comments no spam lor!

You currently can’t leave comments on some (many) Blogger blogs. And this free service is full-o-bugs:

Known Issues

This is a list of currently-known Blogger bugs/issues (and workarounds, if available). We hope to fix all of them in time, so thanks for your continued patience!
Blogger Bugs

* Users are currently getting “Blog not found” errors when accessing comment pages. We are working on getting this resolved ASAP.
* We have had to temporarily disable the Mail-to-Blogger feature, which means that emailed posts will not be able to reach your blog. We plan to restore this functionality soon but have needed to turn this feature off for now in order to stabilize our database servers. In the meantime, you can continue to post by logging in through the Blogger.com homepage.
* Stats collection has been temporarily turned off as well, so you will not see your post count or recent posts updating on your dashboard or profile. Once we get this restored, these items will update automatically.
* Currently, Profile Images must be under 50k in size, and their URLs must be less than 68 characters long. These bugs will be fixed soon.
* Posts made between midnight and 1:00 am may have their time stamps off by one hour. You can correct this by editing the post and manually changing the time.
* Republishing an entire blog will sometimes get stuck part way through and not finish, though new entries can still be published normally. We are working on improving the database performance to fix this error.
* Post-search (from the Edit Posts page) doesn’t do Advanced searching (multiple terms, etc.)

Browser Issues

* In Mac versions of Internet Explorer, certain buttons are not appearing, such as the buttons for signing in, creating accounts and blogs, and saving profiles. The best thing to do until we fix this is to simply use a different browser, such as Safari or Firefox. For cases like signing in or saving a profile, you can also just press Return to submit the form.
* Spell check does not work in Safari. We recommend using Mozilla Firefox for Mac users.
* In the Camino browser, text cannot be entered into the posting field. We will be making some changes to handle this browser better.
* In recent versions of Mozilla browsers, the image upload and spell-check windows may be blocked as popups. You can fix this by changing your preferences to allow popups from blogger.com & www.blogger.com.

BUT! I am sticking to Blogger for the time being because it is free, and the very infrequent bugs are part of the quirks. And I have engineers at Google fixing the bugs rather than myself having to tinker with stuff on MT or WP. And cool people use Blogger.

And no comments means no comments spam.
