Two Organs, Two Kilos

It's probably not what you're thinking - although, who am I to assume what you're thinking?

But, if you've got a sort of gross image of body parts...forget it. It's safe to read on even if you're squeamish.

This is all about food...and music.

Running and Music

Go together like apple and pie.

Whaat?

I know that probably doesn't make much sense, but hear me out.

I've taken up running (walking fast and jogging slowly to be accurate) and I've found that I just can't really do it without music blasting in my ears. (I'm sure I'm not alone.)

Thing is, I've got two routes. Both of them peppered with food establishments that torture me. And one has got what may be the best apple pie in my area.

Make sense now?

The Quitting Smoking Chronicles: Month 4

It feels like yesterday, but at the same time, it feels like it's been forever.

Most days, I don't even think about smoking anymore, but there are times when the urge to smoke is so strong that I find myself almost caving in. The only thing that stops me is the thought that the past months would have been for nothing. That if I was able to go through all that time without smoking, I can go through one more day.

Today is one of those days.

I wonder when (if?) these moments of craving will ever go away.

It doesn't help that I know I have gained (and seems like am gaining) weight since I stopped smoking. Vanity at its worst, you may say. Sue me.

It also doesn't help that I have been getting sick a lot since I quit. See Month 2.

You a quitter? How was your experience?

What Do You Use Your iPhone For?

I've got this "dedicated device" principle that I like to stick to as much as possible. Back in the day when I had the iPhone 4 and then the iPhone 5, it was easy.

The phone was for, well, phone things - calling and texting. Oh, and I used it as an eReader.

The iPad was for games and working on the road.

The iPod Nano was for music, obviously.

Today, the lines have become blurred, thanks to the changes in device sizes.

Why You Shouldn't Get a Brazilian Blowout

Reason 1: It's probably not what you expect it to be. Reason 2: It won't last more than a week. Maybe less.

I give these reasons based on my own experience.

This is how a Brazilian Blowout is promoted.


Looks enticing, doesn't it? 
But looks can be deceiving. After all, ads are meant to hook customers.
Before I continue, in case you're not familiar with a Brazilian Blowout, here is how the official website describes it.
