I’m a bookworm. I loooooove books, which is one of the reasons my first few jobs were in bookstores. I loved being surrounded by books. Loved it then; love it even more now. I’m in the middle of moving a few bookshelves around, so to make the job easier I decided to stack all my… Read more I [Heart] Books
You heard it here first (and since no one else will really care about this, it’s also the only place you’ll hear about it, which sort of makes this story a Gnorb.NET Exclusive): the last of my cavities has been taken care of, and to everyone’s surprise it turns out I don’t need to have… Read more The Dental Debacle is Over!
This is a follow up to a previous post about the matter. Probably the most studied war today, World War II still holds us in fascination over the immensity of the odds at stake, the fairy tale like themes of good versus evil, and as an example of the lengths we will go to in… Read more Hiroshima: What Was it Like?
Talk about one heck of a week! I know you probably haven’t been wondering about why I haven’t posted all that much recently (well, other than “why hasn’t Gnorb posted more? Hmm…”), but I’ll explain anyway. This has been one really screwy week. I’ll start with last night and sort of jump around from there.
Stories like this just make me feel good, especially now. This guy went from 500 lbs to 240 lbs. I was 34 and had always struggled with my weight, but for 15 years, I had allowed it to get out of control. I ate as if it were my hobby. I was unable to do… Read more Path To Weight Loss: Matt’s Story and CR-Related Soreness
Over the past few months I’ve been increasingly intrigued by Donald Trump. Sure, I disagree with some of the guy’s philosophies (like when he says “When somebody screws you, you screw them back”), and some of his businesses (casinos, in particular), but his books contain insight about the world of business which can only be… Read more Guy Kawasaki Interviews Donald Trump
Well, I’ve done it: I’ve become the biggest weight-loser in the office: 12.6 lbs in two weeks. The runner up lost 5 lbs. Grand prize is $70, plus two weeks of candy-based sabotage attacks from my co-workers, starting with the big pile of M&M’s and Snickers bars put in front of my office. Thanks for… Read more Path To Weight Loss: First Cycle Results
I just finished watching the first season of the new Sci-Fi Chanel version of Battlestar Gallactica. I wrote about it before, after having seen the opening movie, and while I wasn’t too impressed, I liked what I saw. (Luckily in sci-fi there are only two kinds of movies: good movies and funny movies. The first… Read more Battlestar Galactica, Season 1 Observations
Look at the picture to the right. What does it look like to you? If you’re like I was just a few weeks ago, you’re probably thinking “It’s a mug that looks sort of like a flower pot with a handle.” But isn’t it funny how if you walked into someone’s house, asked for a… Read more Every Cup Has a Story: A Visit to Pottery Highway
As you may recall, a few weeks ago some people at my office got together and started their own chapter (?) of The Biggest Loser, in an effort to help the average weight of the office — a number I personally skew way up — down to more normal levels (for the rest of society,… Read more Path to Weight Loss: The Beginning
