live, love, eat.

Attempts at order
I recently bought a new Palm Treo to get some organization back into my life. Two days and it has already become the boss of me.

It beeps when I am one minute late from doing what I am supposed to be doing – which could be anything from taking care of business to scrubbing my walls clean to watching a rerun of Beauty and the Geek. It helps keep me on track, especially during weekends when I have to work from home. It reminds me that I have no right to be watching DVDs when there are is work to be finished, employees to look out for, worlds to be conquered.

The Treo reminds me that there are some things to respect – like appointments, other people’s time, etc. I know it’s pathetic to be controlled by gadget, but that’s just me – I have to have a beeping, nagging equipment with definite rules to abide by. Religion would work, too, sure. But until I could find a beeping morality meter, the Treo is coming with me. Everywhere.

Eating bistro style
The few times that MSP and I get to go out, we look for nice restaurants with reasonably-priced food. A few days ago after our business meeting in the good old Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, we stumbled upon a crowded bistro that served great salads and wine for about $4 per person. It was not bad at all.
