Coffee anyone?

I just learned on Oprah that coffee... drum roll please... makes you younger! Yes, coffee shaves years off of your "real age" and keeps you younger and healthier. I should be about 16 in that case.

And so it turns out that one of my vices is actually a virture. Hooray!

Work Life Balance Seminars

I find it ironic that the work life balance group at my firm is holding a seminar after work next week on how to juggle work and your personal life. Here's a thought... how about attending less afterwork seminars?

And yes, there is a whole group devoted to this that has extra meetings, deliverables, and seminars to talk about work life balance... it's like holding a chocolholic convention at Hershey's headquarters.
