Lunch – Salad & Anchovy Pizza

When I ordered an Anchovy Pizza, the cashier said, “You are the first person ordering anchovy in 2 months.” So, I told her “Make that a double anchovy”. My coworker also ordered anchovy pizza.

“How do I explain the beauty of anchovy? How do I make them understand?” I asked my co-worker. “I don’t know, dude… start a website,” he answered.

We talked about anchovy pizzas while we were eating ’em. 
I told him how much I enjoy the chalky, meaty texture of anchovy. 
My coworker told me about the best anchovy pizza he ever had.


For lunch, we only get one trip to the salad bar with this bowl. So, naturally, we pile ’em up high. 

I quickly learned that Sprouts goes on top. That bowl of salad could have gone a lot higher, but I didn’t want to embarrass my coworker.

Unscented Please

How come so many deodorants, aftershaves, and lotions have a stupid smell to them? Why is it so difficult to find a decent unscented aftershave?

I don’t like the smell of every single aftershave in the market. I don’t care if they are from Channel or Old Spice. They are all disgusting. I hate ’em.

I don’t want to smell like a grandfather. I don’t want to smell like a college kid who enjoys clubbing a lot.

They call it “Cool Breeze”, “Sports Scent”, and whatever… that doesn’t make sense. Why advertise your armpit smell? Everyone knows that smell is coming from the pits of your arms. That’s disgusting.

This goes the same with feminine care products. If I was a woman, I would hate my Tampons to smell, period (no pun intended). I don’t want anyone to associate the fragrance with my vagina. If I was a woman, I would like my tampons and pads to eliminate any kind of smell instead of emitting a special scent for my vagina.

When it comes to personal care products, “No Smell” is the way to go. Am I the only person thinking this way?

Why is it SOOO hard to find unscented products?

Gave Tweety Birds to My Neighbor

There is an old lady in my neighborhood. She’s 84 years old. She used to carry a big fuzzy Tweety Bird key chain.

I say “Hi” whenever I see her.  
Her tweety bird was getting dirty.

Then, one day, she stopped carrying her Tweety Bird. She lost the bird; she said.

So I went online and ordered two Tweety Key-chains.

After a few weeks, I saw the old lady walking into her house.

I grabbed my Tweeties from the back seat of my car and ran after her.

I had to be very careful not to scare her. She might think I was a criminal or something, so..

I said “hi” and gave her the tweety key-chain. 

She was very happy. She gave me a big hug. She said “Thank you, thank you… how sweet.. ” She was almost crying.

Good time.

BBQ Day this Weekend

I am getting ready for a BBQ day tomorrow (Saturday). I will eat alone, but it’s OK. I keep myself busy and entertained.

I need to work on my web projects.

I plan to take a nap, practice guitar, watch The Lakers, drink coffee, keep working… I should visit my parents too… hm. I am so busy.

Anyway, I have chicken and steak ready for tomorrow. Chicken is from July 2008 shopping, steak is from the Glorious Thanksgiving Steak Sale.

I need to pick out some movies for this weekend.

Simple Office Ergonomics – Mouse

I hope somebody would agree with me on this

At work, we have expensive office furniture. Everyone sits on a $600.00 Herman Miller office chair. I am saving money so I can buy one for my apartment.

Then I have this under the work desk. This keyboard tray has a built-in mouse pad. It looks like this. This may look very typical to most people, but it makes little sense to me. 

Office Ergonomics

With the above setting, my right hand must move down to grab my mouse. This doesn’t make sense. We must raise the mouse up a little so it will be at the same level as the keyboard. 

Something like this (below)

Office Ergonomics Mouse

This is how I set up my mouse at both work & home office. I raised up my mouse pad slightly. I think this the only way.

I don’t want my mouse too far away from my keyboard.
I want my mouse leveled with my keyboard.

Wash Your Ziplock Bags – Save Money

Your Ziplock bags are not for onetime use only. You must wash & reuse your Ziplock bags as many times as possible. These bags are very expensive. Recycle your ziplock bags. 

This is how I wash my used Ziplock bags.

  1. Turn the bag completely inside out.
  2. Use dish soap and scrubber (soft side).
    • Lay the bag flat on the kitchen sink and scrub it with plenty of detergents (pay more attention if the bag used to hold blood).
    • Rinse inside the bag briefly (“inside” will become “outside” later)
  3. Dry the bag as is (the bag is still turned inside out).

A Christmas Gift to Myself

This is a Christmas gift I gave to myself.

It’s Das Keyboard – the best keyboard in the world.

I bought the “Ultimate” model. As you can see, the keyboard is completely blank. 

It was $129.00, delivered from
It’s a little expensive, but a Christmas gift should be fancy.
I am loving this keyboard.

I spend 12-16 hours a day typing (programming & blogging). I am thinking about getting one for work as well. It’s a beautiful keyboard. The quality is amazing.
