Southwest Shrimp Fettuccine at Applebee's: Does it taste the way it sounds?

Liaa turned 10 today. Because it's her birthday, she had the liberty to choose where the final dinner destination would be. She decided to give Applebee's a try. We agreed. After all, it's just in the neighborhood. The rest (probably) had a great time. Since I was the typical 'fun killer,' I had my share of the night again.

At first the waiter served us a mountain load of chips and dip for our order of supposedly an appetizer sampler. As soon as the order touched our table, we hurriedly dipped and messed with the appetizer. A couple of minutes have passed, and the waiter probably realized he committed sin against his hungry guests. At a lightning speed, he snatched the platter and without any apology, he told us that it's not what we ordered. Minus two stars for being a moron!

Fifteen minutes and a few dips of chips in a spinach cream after, the main course came. My order was a grand-sounding Southwest Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo. It looked good on the menu. But …

Brazilian Woman's Virginity is Worth $780,000!

eBay's policies clearly state: no live auctions!

I'm pretty sure it didn't happen on eBay. But wherever this auction was hosted, it is no longer important.

Catarina Migliorini, a 20 year-old Brazilian woman, has auctioned her virginity and won a whopping $780,000 from the highest of the five bidders. The lucky man is from Japan. He will receive his "winning auction" in the United States to avoid slur of prostitution in their respective countries (and what do they think of the US?!).

According to Slate Magazine, this auction process is part of an Australian documentary. They are very careful in clarifying that this is not about prostitution. In fact, the "winning item" and the winning bidder will undergo an STD test before the award! Horrible!

According to Catarina, her intent is good: much of the proceeds will be donated to charity.

Well, the world is spinning so fast.

Any takeaways?


Discover an Active Income from Home

Is there such a thing as active income from home? No matter how silly the question is, this is what I asked myself after reading tons of "passive" income from home ideas from the so-called 'gurus' of the internet revolution.

Affiliate marketers are always lured by the idea that you can have a passive income at home while sleeping. The fourth law of ecology, however, tells us that there is no such thing as free lunch. If you want rewards, work on them.

For quite a while now, I have been promoting Swagbucks as a publisher. However, I was not very much involved in the way it works. I recently experimented doing an active work with it, and my profits quadrupled. Curious? Try it for yourself.

How does anyone earn from Swagbucks? Earning comes in a variety of ways: use of coupons, accepting daily deals, participating in daily polls, playing games online, inviting friends from your facebook, twitter, pinterest and other social networks, searching online (using a special se…
