Christmas in Ciaoland

AdvantagesHey its Christmas

DisadvantagesSome of the stars may want to beat me round the head with a big stick

"Flying through the evening air, we fly over Ciaoland a small suburb of the huge city known as Internet. It is a peaceful place where friendly inhabitants conduct their lives, interacting and swapping opinions as well as discussing happenings in their lives. Friendships are made sorrows and joys are shared with equal measure. It is Christmas Eve, and the sky is darkening as evening deepens. Snow gently drifts to earth adding to the white cloak ..."

The Chav's 12 Days of Christmas

AdvantagesEverything a Chav could ever want...

Disadvantages...But will probably already have !

"It's Christmas, and this traditionally means a very busy time of year for high street outlets. In particular, shops that appeal to a certain type of consumer report higher profits (and increased shoplifting). But what do you get the Chav that has got everything ? Well, here are my suggestions in... The Chav's 12 Days Of Christmas... ============================ On the first day of Christmas, my chav bird gave to me, A voucher from J.J.B. On ..." Read review

Belonging.

AdvantagesHidden meanings

Disadvantagesneed another category.

"A short introduction. I've written quite a few poems and coud not find a category for this one. I have written quite a few sad poems, so felt the need to try something different. I'm updating this for a reason, not to change the poem or to get more ratings, not even to change the spelling mistakes. There is a message to this poem and one I feel is somehow appropiate at the moment. I wrote it a while back in an attempt to put a difficult concept ..." Read review

Of Life

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesnone

"OF LIFE I've walked upon a beach of ocean nights and windswept mornings Caught the snow white horses as they pounded to the shore Watched the blazing scarlet sink into the soft green forests Seen the comets blazing trails on cosmic corridors I've heard a whispering legend carried on the Summer breezes Touched the raging Winter wind that sweeps the snow before I've shared a cosy evening watching nature's jewels all falling To the misty ..."

Spring

AdvantagesTime of year

DisadvantagesSnow

"Spring has to be the best time of year. Mostly because summer is just around the corner. When summer arrives you only have autumn and winter to look forward to. How depressing. Actually I quite like autumn and winter. I didn't used to. I always found them hugely depressing. But these days I don't. They're full of beauty, majesty, coldness, warm log fires, days spent indoors writing stuff on your computer, looking out the window at the terrible ..." Read review

STILL CUTTING IT

AdvantagesHopefully you will enjoy

Disadvantagescouldn't find suitable category

"CUTTING IT Since posting my ‘Can You Cut It’ review on Ciao I have received numerous comments on the short stories and the feedback has been encouragingly positive. So I thought I would see if I could dream up a couple more for your entertainment. In the original article I said that it was quite difficult to write a story with a beginning, middle and end in sixty words or less and I think I really understated that comment. I have spent several ..." Read review

GOODBYE TO EVERYONE ?

DisadvantagesNone I hope.

"...under the heading of Seasonal Words, because Professor Ward goes on to explain the seasonal differences in Cyber world and how they affect the future of the Internet. You will see that this is indeed not off topic when you take the link and follow it through to understand what science is behind this spectacular theory which will very soon become a reality.

A Christmas Message Review with images

AdvantagesHopefully amusing

DisadvantagesNot mine (but that may be a plus)

"...would spread a bit of seasonal cheer. Of course, a Christmas message doesn't make me Queen of Ciao (leave suggestions in comments?) DISCLAIMER: The below aren’t my own work - they’ve all been found lying around the internert or (mostly) emailed to me, and I thought I’d pass them on for you all to enjoy. Hope no one finds them offensive… A (POLITICALLY CORRECT?) CHRISTMAS GREETING We wish You and Your Family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy ..." Read review

A Ciao Exposé: Why Father Christmas Can't Exist

AdvantagesIt's mildly amusing

DisadvantagesDisappointingly, it proves Father Christmas may no longer be with us

"I'm sure the mathematicians and statisticians amongst you will find fault in this piece of festive fun found on the Internet, but I thought we'd share it with you anyway! It'll make you think while you're sitting there, stuffed with turkey and slightly tipsy on wine, about where that present with no label on it actually came from ... There are about 2 billion children in the world. An average of 3.5 children per household makes 108 million houses ..." Read review

~Time Line~ Review with images

Advantages Every day gives us the time to enjoy it

Disadvantages We cant stop the time to move on

"This week, I received a short message thru my public guestbook from another member of ciao. She was able to visit my Friendster homepage and she mentioned that she browsed some of my previous postings in my blog and one of them is the poem entitled, Time Line which was written in January of this year. Sometimes it is easy for me to write down my thoughts especially when looking back for the things that I have accomplished for the past few days. ..." Read review

●My Seasons Poems● Review with images

AdvantagesThey're quite good, I think!

DisadvantagesYou might not think they're good!

"I was trying to think of something to do a review on, and came across ‘seasonal words’ section in the Ciao Café. So, I challenged myself to write one or two poems on the seasons of the year. I’m not good at writing poems, but these are what I came up with. Hope you enjoy! ●WINTER● Winter time is full of snow, Falling from the sky to the floor, Fancy flakes of different patterns, In the winter time when Christmas happens, Presents ..." Read review
