20 Old Fashioned Baby Names That are Back in Style
I gotta say, I 100% support bringing back old-fashioned names. Much better than naming your kid Brittaniey. I especially love the name Henry.
Masarap ako. Tipo ng tao na masarap magmahal. Gusto ko yung tipong pag nawala ako, hahanap hanapin nya yung presensya ko. Yun bang mahihirapan syang makamove on kaya oras na lokohin nya ako, malaking kawalan ang mangyayare sa kanya. Kahit mukha akong suplado, medyo maeffort naman ako. Gusto ko kase yung satisfied sya lagi sa mga ginagawa ko. Tipong sasabihin nya na swerte sya kase ako yung pinili nya. Gusto ko yung tipong mahihirapan syang pakawalan ako kase nga masarap ako, de kase bihira lang dumating sa buhay nya ang tulad ko. Gagawin ko lahat ng parte ko sa relasyon namin, sya na bahalang gawin yung part nya. Ngayon kung hindi ako naaappreciate, eh malamang ako na rin ang unang sumuko. At oras na malaman kong ginagago ako, makikipag gagauhan din ako. Patigasan na lang. Yung ganun ba. Medyo marami naman kaseng nagmamahal saken kaya hindi ko kailangang magsettle sa taong hindi naman ako kayang ipaglaban.

Ten amazing facts about Yours Truly
ashmariie asked: TAG, you’re it! The rules are to state ten random facts about yourself. Then send this to the fifteen nicest people on tumblr.
Unka Glen answered: Generally I’d prefer this blog to be about YOU, but I suppose you do deserve to know what kind of dude is writing all this, so here goes:
1. I’m from Texas. This means that every woman, from my 3 year-old-neice, to my oldest Aunty, is either sweetheart, darlin’, or hon. When my wife asks me to do something for her I say, “yes ma’am”. I always take my hat off my head when speaking to a woman,and I’m prone to Texas sayings in my sermons. (“I’m not going to say our next door neighbor was heavy, bless her heart, but she was warm in winter and shady in summer”).
2. If you asked me to use one word to describe myself, I would choose: scoundrel. I would say I’m a scoundrel with a thin candy coating of sanctification.
3. I don’t like wearing pants. If you come to my house unannounced you will almost certainly find me in my boxers. I check the mail every day, even in Chicago winters, in my underwear… to my wife’s horror. My feeling is, if you don’t wanna see nothin’, don’t go lookin’ for nothin’!
4. During our wedding ceremony, my wife put the ring on the wrong finger. (I know!) I’ve been accused of holding out the wrong hand intentionally. (Can you imagine?) Nonetheless, as a result, she is married to me, but (technically) I am not married to her. I need to look that up to be sure, but I’m pretty sure that’s the law. You can’t argue with facts.
5. I make stuff. I made a set of golf clubs once. I made the digital clock that sits next to my desk. And the lamp I’m typing by. I figured out how to string a ukulele to be tuned like a mandolin (this involved WalMart fishing line), and with an electric pickup, volume and tone controls, I invented the world’s only Electric Mandolele. This may be the least cool invention ever…or the most cool…I’m not sure. I’ve also made my own custom fitted earbuds, they sound awesome, but they look very much like a pickled pig’s rectum.
6. I hosted a Christian radio program several years ago, and I got in trouble for saying, on the air, “today’s show is so good, it’s gonna give the devil a pants-down spankin’!.”
7. I have a gold tooth all the way in the back of my head. I lost the tooth after hitting the ground in a state of unconsciousness. A very large school bully was harassing a very small kid for being a Muslim, I stepped in (despite being pretty much the same size as the kid), and blamo! I didn’t actually like the kid much myself, and he never thanked me. I feel there’s a lesson in this story, but I have no idea what it might be.
8. I’ve preached at chapel services for the Chicago White Sox, and the Milwaukee Brewers.
9. I am a Christian, but I remain a work in progress. God’s not in a hurry with this work, and so neither am I. God and I are walkin’ and talkin’ and we’re intensely engaged in working things out. The natural by-product of this will certainly be a less sinful me, but it might take awhile. In this, God is patient with me, whether anyone else is or not.
10. I really, truly love writing this blog, and I really truly love YOU for reading it. Seriously. Almost all of these posts are queued to drop in the evenings, but the majority of them are written very late at night, after a long day of urban ministry. You have amazed me and inspired me. You’ve encouraged me, and pushed me to be my best, and when I realized my best wasn’t good enough, I had to go to God to get HIS best. You deserve nothing less.
15 Totally Random But Shocking Facts
15. How to stop your yawn.
The next time you’re tired and let out a yawn, touch your tongue. It’s impossible to yawn if you touch your tongue!
14. Cracking your knuckles isn’t so bad after all.
Remember when your mom scolded you for cracking your knuckles? “You’re knuckles will get fat and you’ll get arthritis!” Cracking your knuckles is actually beneficial for your bones. The sound is made by bursting gas bubbles.
13. A seashell from the seashore.
Though it’s commonly told otherwise, when you put a seashell next to your ear, you actually hear the sound of your blood surging through your veins, not the sound of the ocean.
12. The black sheep of berries.
Strawberries aren’t actually berries because it isn’t a fleshy fruit developed from a single seed, but bananas can be technically classified as one for the same reason the aforementioned isn’t.
11. An unlikely fear.
Anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere in the world, there is a duck watching you. This specific type of phobia develops from an earlier childhood experience as most birds, such as geese and swans, are known for their aggressive tendencies.
10. A familiar mutation.
Not widely known, blue eyes are actually a mutation rather than a natural trait. The alteration takes place in a woman’s womb where the OCA2 gene, which is involved in the production of melanin, is disrupted to make the eyes blue rather than brown.
9. A lucky exit.
Statistics and research show an individual is more likely to die on their way to buy a lottery ticket than they are to actually win the lottery.
8. Endless conversations.
According to calculations, the average woman speaks more than 7,000 words a day. The average man only speaks about 2,000 words or less.
7. Rhyming and scheming.
No word in the English language or the refined instalment of the Oxford Dictionary rhymes with orange, purple, month or silver.
6. Spiritual thrifting.
The Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter and The Twilight series all present worthy cases, but the Bible is actually the number one most shoplifted book of all time.
5. Not common knowledge.
Though the public education system puts a major emphasis on sciences, only 55% of all Americans know that the sun is actually a star.
4. A numbers game.
Next to Three and Five, Four is the only number known to have the same amount of letters as its actual numeric value.
3. No humming allowed.
You actually can’t hum while you’re holding your nose closed. Try it out for yourself!
2. A natural fear.
On average, people tend to fear spiders more than they do death. Some statistics show 50% of women and 10% of men suffer from a case of arachnophobia.
1. It’s all about water.
Since jellyfish are 98% water, they can evaporate into thin air if exposed to the sun. Humans are roughly made up of 60-70% water.
