…are too frequent and too many.  I have three screens on my desk including my laptop, with multiple applications open on all of them. And yet by the end of the day, I end up wondering at the little I seemingly managed to achieve.

Truly multitasking is a myth.  Maybe I should just go back to just one screen? But then again, how would I manage with only one?

I’m speechless.  The pilot just takes points the aircraft upward and takes off like a space shuttle. Amazing machine.

I have been on a ‘diet’ for the past two weeks.  Yes, I finally had to admit that I needed to take stock of what i was stuffing in my face or else face the prospect of never going back to my original weight or, even worse, gaining even more weight.

I’m not the type to go for a starvation diet, so my aim was to eat healthy while still feeling at least vaguely full. So I settled for a regime involving:

  1. A bowl of Kellogg’s Special K in the morning,
  2. A cereal bar around 10am,
  3. Salad – chicken, salmon or grilled vegetables – for noon, and
  4. Special K again in the evening.

The result so far is that I have gone down from 77.6KG to 75.0 in two weeks. Not bad at all.. Obviously this is not something that would work for everyone. Hell, it barely works for me as I find myself craving snacks and junk food all the time!

On that last note, I am not observing the routine during weekends because.. well, the weekends are there for enjoyment and even anyway breaking it for two weekends on end has not dented the result.  Granted, it could be that I would have lost even more weight, but luckily 5 days a week seems to be enough.

I’ll just leave this here..

17. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. “But why,” they asked, as they moved off. “Because,” he said, “I can’t stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
