The Boost from Without Lifts the Soul from Within!

Was feeling under the weather one day and IM-ed a fellow colleague about it. Next thing I was handed this glass of booster drink. I think the sweet gesture perked me up faster than the drink did!
It is an absolute bonus to make friends out of colleagues and I think when we do, we will find that despite freezing temperatures, office is a warm and fuzzy place to work in!


Viva Voodoo Fun!

Matthew 5:39 in the Bible says “…But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also”.

I have been blessed with very nice colleagues all this while. It is too perfect I think. I love them all and I count their company as my daily blessings.
A bastard has been sent to spruce things up and to remind me not to take things for granted. Yes, perhaps that is so.

Mr. ATWB is one big @#%*ing asshole. He disregards people, is completely unhelpful, very dense and tries to kill you by writing loaded emails to our director. I have tried for 3 months to give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he’s just a ‘cool’ person who needs some time for us to find some redeeming quality in him.
Nah, so wrong. It just gets worse to the extent that you want to run to IKEA and buy that funny Voodoo doll to poke at him at night.
\(o_0)=O POW!

Do you have an arse faced co-worker in the office you badly want to inflict pain upon? Here is a really good game to vent your frustrations on:
It helps you steer clear of committing homicide or getting forced into attending compulsory anger management classes.

Our brain is like a muscle. Don’t give it a regular workout and it will turn flabby.
For 8 hours of my life on weekdays, I feel my brain wasting away. It scorns at the tasks it is made to work on, complaining that they limit optimal performance. Maybe I should put it on my desk one day while I work. Ha!

My brain is underused, I am nevertheless overworked and I am a grouchy walking time bomb.

Mind Boggling Brain Facts (by Dr. Dan Korow)
• Weighs only 2-3 pounds

• Compactly designed to fit inside the human skull

• Contains about 10 billion neurons, and 100 billion glial cells

• Has an estimated 100 trillion synapses (neuron interconnections)

• Performs 1015 computations per second

• Holds at least 1014 bits (binary digits) of information

• Potential brain capacity is estimated at 20 million books- filling a 500 mile bookshelf

• Filters irrelevant stimuli or information from important data

• Directs and controls sequential brain activity like a “Central Programming Unit”

• Recalls facts and events

• Recognizes objects and faces

• Remembers navigational routes

• Reasons, plans & solves complex problems

• Comprehends written & verbal languages

• Develops & fine tunes grammatical & pronunciation skills

• Appreciates visual beauty & the musical arts

• Intimately associated with emotional states, morals, and behaviors

• Regulates & coordinates tissue function from the cellular level leading to muscle activity

Gosh, seems like we are under-utilizing our brains most time. Come on, stretch it!

Wishing and Hoping

I wish to be younger. 3 years younger is all I wish for. There are so many things in my early adulthood left undone.
I hope to have a black Chanel 2.55. Sigh. It goes so well with everything, especially with my business suits.

The Punk in Me!

Was deliberating over this hoodie at Hard Rock cafe (San Diego) on my last visit. Decided to take my food first to prevent another impluse buy. The Apple Crumble at Hard Rock is really yummy! It was a satisfying meal. So, did I purchase the hoodie in the end?

Ah, the punk in me said yes and followed me home it did! ;-)
