This blog contains a snippet of my mind, and interesting and thought-provoking things I find.
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

Weekends always seem to go quickly, but they’re longer than we think. There are 60 hours between that 6 p.m. Friday beer and that 6 a.m. Monday alarm clock. That’s plenty of time for fun, relaxation and more importantly, recharging the batteries.
Here are 10 tips for making the most of your days off:
1. Do make a plan.
2. Don’t fill every minute.
3. Do stretch yourself occasionally.
4. Don’t forget to exercise.
5. Do schedule downtime.
6. Don’t give in to the Sunday-night blues.
7. Do make the most of other people’s schedules.
8. Don’t do too many chores.
9. Do spend some time planning your week.
10. Don’t work every minute.
I can get on board with this. You’ve worked hard all week, now make sure you enjoy the fruits of your labor.
One day an engineer found himself at the pearly gates. St. Peter looked him up in the book, and found that he was destined for the other place. The engineer protested that this must be a mistake, and that he had lived a righteous life, going to church every week, being faithful to his wife etc. to no avail.
About 6 weeks later God reviews the lists and realizes that the engineer has been sent to the wrong place. So he rings up Lucifer and demands that the engineer be sent up. Lucifer says NO WAY. This guy was the best thing to ever happen here. He’s got the AC working, we have running water and cable now too, and next week he thinks we will get internet access and an ice cream machine. God is pissed and yelling says “I’ll sue”. Lucifer says LOL where are you going to get a lawyer and hangs up.
