How to Add an Animated Image to the Post Title in Blogger

Image
I couldn't find a tutorial on how to add random images to the post title so I decided to just add an animated image instead.

The file extension of the animated image is .GIF and I managed to locate an online conversion page in gifninja.com. Fortunately, the instructions are very well understandable and easy to perform.

Next, I tweaked my layout codes by adding this to my post title code (in my layout it's .post h3)

background: url('IMAGE_URL_HERE') no-repeat right center;

so that the image can be placed smugly at the rightmost part of the post title center aligned (so it doesn't quite get in the way of the post title itself). Don't forget to change to insert your image URL in the area specified in the code - (see the line in red)![Finish this post by clicking on "Read the rest of the story here..."]


Next to adjust the post title dimensions, I added these:

height: 70px;
width:550px;

And changed the padding and margin declarations into these:

margin-top: 0px;

Someone Viewed my Resum&#233

An email notification was sent:



Hmmmm... So there's a demand for CPA's huh? Hehehe...
But I don't think that company's a great investment for my, or any other's, career.


New Yahoo Mail header adapts to the Time of Day

Image
It's funny because I thought being evicted from my room was just nasty, but then again, I realized it also has a lot of upside to it.

No. 1 - I can enjoy looking at, but not touching, Ms Gin's things. Which are a lot. A lot of nicety curiosity tickling things to pore at.

NO. 2 - She has internet connection in her room. That's why I can post this darn post.

So I check my mail. One of those things that already seems mandatory and second to impulse, or involuntary, or whatever the term is supposed to be. And I find the header, if that's what it's called, of my email has turned black. At first I jacked my braincells up a bit, then I remembered Matet telling me that the new yahoomail's header (not the classic one!) changes its "look" with the weather or the time of the day where you're located at. And right now, it's black (basically because it's already night time, nitwit.). Here's how it currently looks like - notice the black part:

Being an Evictee of my Own Room

Image
Well, even if I don't entirely like it to be that way, I just have to be evicted from my room.

Apparently, the hotel has overbooked and confidently assumed that it will be okay with me to stay with Ms Gin [name was changed to protect her identity...] in her room. I'm a private person. I like my private life to remain private. I'd rather have myself talking to myself than spending my pre-sleep hours trying to be more than just civil with a person I'm not actually very close with. But this time, I don't have a choice. If I opt to refuse the sudden room change, they might label me as "prima dona" which I wouldn't love too much, would I? So I reluctantly said it's okay. Ms Gin's not that bad.

Have to go pack-up... Tragic.



Mga Salawikain - a Project for all time

Image
I’m a professional now and it just dawned on me that there were these notoriously annoying projects in our elementary years – basically re-used and rehashed in high school – that were plainly, well in my opinion, useless when you’re already working. Except maybe when you’re giving out pep talks to your colleagues, but I much rather give all straight out. Yes, I’m that straight forward. Even though it seems too much at times, I rather enjoy being a no-nonsense type of person. Anyway, back to the projects.

One of these high-grade hurdles is this project in Filipino where we, the students, are asked to compile several Filipino proverbs, or those we call “Salawikain”. I always wondered what the teachers were going to do with all her students’ projects right after grading them. [Finish this post by clicking on "Read the rest of the story here..."]

Ghost Writing for Ms Pots

So far, I've done a lot of ghost writing for Ms Pots, most of these were procedures that are now of general circulation all over the "wasservor" companies within the country, and just a few days ago, she suddenly realized that she can actually ask me to write memos for her which she can immediately send out through email. Which is just great because that gives an added load every now and then, plus, she can deny writing them every time it generates enough heat to singe her!

Just like the memo she issued to follow up the 2009 budget. When she released that particular thing, almost everybody went into an uproar honestly thinking that Ms Pots was boiling with anger. But in reality, she was laughing (I know because she went inside the office and told me all about it!).

Anyway, I just sent her another one and here's how it looks like...

Hohum. Anyway, it's just about 5:30 pm. Time to go.

No Fear

And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
- Mark 4:40

Yep, why is it that we just stop believing?

When we were kids we used to believe in Santa Claus. But now we don't. Yet we still make children think that there is such a bubbly stout old guy who gives presents on Christmas Eve named Santa Claus.

So how come that when we encounter problems and nuisances and other obstacles, we sometimes doubt or even stop believing that there is someone out there watching over us and re-assuring us that, hey, Don't you believe I can make it all better?

Tie a Yellow Ribbon

Better yet, wear a yellow shirt.

There's an ongoing campaign rut between the No's and the Yes's here in the Office ever since the ruling setting October 20 as the date of the certification election.

Everyone's gaga over receiving these yellow sheets outlining the disadvantages of having a union in the company. And they're all in vernacular. Good thing almost everyone can interpret it to me. Hehehe...

And just in, the white ordinary paper campaign started by the union itself. They're campaining for the yes of course... If the yes wins, they're gonna get an estimated cash inflow from us of about 1.8 mil for the entire period of 5 years (if i remember the leaflet details right...if not, then it's not 1.8 M...) Big enough for the leader not to work at all... Good for him. Not so good for the union members. 'Coz that would mean mandatory deductions (which everybody seems to despise!) for things that they really don't need or do not understand at all. (…
