Are Laptops Better than Cat Beds? Your Cat Thinks So

This one’s mine. Said every cat ever. Are you inspired to complete your thesis? Planning to finish writing that long-awaited novel? Or it’s that infernal presentation that your boss has been harping about? Whatever the reason, you brew yourself a hot cup of coffee and fire up the laptop. You’re about to do some serious…

Halt! Stop the Meeting Invitations!

Photo by rawpixel.com from Pexels Has anyone ever asked to schedule a meeting for a meeting of the meeting for that meeting… Sorry, I had to do that. But think about it. How many meetings have you attended lately? How many meetings have you attended lately within a day? How many of these meetings were…

Why You Should Keep A Journal (Mine Would Be With A Typewriter).

Now that I have a typewriter, I’ve often been wondering what the heck am I going to use a typewriter for as I already have a laptop and several new Moleskine ruled notebooks (these are still waiting to be used). I’ve done my share of researching online, reading a variety of blogs and websites on…

For The Love of Typewriters.

I have always been one to lean towards all things retro and vintage, from big things like cars to small things like accessories and costume jewellery. When I came across photos of old timey things like the retro and/or vintage typewriters, I’ve not looked back since. I often croon and rave about typewriters to my…

Why We Read and What Can Books Do For Us.

Have you often asked yourself why is it that you read? Why do you read what you read? Why do we even read in the first place? I suppose the simple answer would be for pleasure. We read because it pleases us. We read because it feels pleasurable to read. But what exactly is the…

As a Matter of Conflict: Fight or Flight?

  There has been a bad vibe going around in my workplace for some time now, and truth be told, I had wanted nothing to do with it. It was conflict. I wanted to sink in further down my chair, hide behind my laptop and pretend nothing happened. The thing is, the conflict revolved around me….

My Heart Goes Out to the Orlando Victims.

A short post today, after reading all the reports and post-mortem articles on the Orlando shooting: My condolences to the victims of the shooting, and their families. I pray that they will find some calm and peace amidst the rocky waves of terror and fear. No human being should ever have to go through this….

When Life Gives You Lemons…

A whole bunch of quotes exist where lemons are concerned. You have probably heard of some, like: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila and salt. When life gives you lemons, throw them back (really, really hard!) When life gives you lemons, keep them because hey, free…

Reasons Why We Own A Cat.

We never thought that we would actually adopt a cat one day. A friend had rescued him as a stray, had two existing ones of her own, and decided to find an owner for him. When we saw him as a kitten, we fell in love with him and decided to adopt him. I’ve never…

Exceptional-list.

No one really knows how the idea for lists came around (although there was a slight mention of David Letterman’s name), and if there is a specific number of points per list. Can you imagine trying to think of top 10 reasons why you love ‘Top 10’ lists with top 10 explanations to support your…

Gotham vs. Krypton.

Warning: Lost blog post ahead. There have been a lot of movie remakes lately, especially the ones with Peter Parker in it and the fairy-tales of Walt Disney. I vividly recall Kristen Stewart in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. Oh my God, please, no. Her acting was stiff and wooden in the Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight…

To Read, Or Not to Read.

My voracious appetite for books and reading has earned me a number of interrogative questions, especially by my relatives on how many books I’ve read, how many books do I buy at one given time, and how is it that I can go for long periods reading and not falling asleep. Because many people I…
