  • PUBES! – (WARNING! Do not read while eating)

    I LOATHE! public toilets. I HATE! community toilets. I DESPISE! having to share a toilet.

    But I can’t very well go the entire day without going potty.

    And to make my experience worse – I find PUBES! left on the toilet seat. YES! ON.THE.TOILET.SEAT. I think that is the abolute-st worst-est thing to find left behind by the person that had entered the toilet just before me. NO THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENT!

    It further puts me off that it is a 1.5 inch long pube – and I start having eeky-yucky pictures in my head as I ‘see’ in my head this lovely young lady with a FOREST of 1.5inch long pubes. I KNOW! WHO’D LEFT THE PUBE! Why didn’t she just sweep it on to the floor, or take it with her?

    Any other hair – on a woman – that is not on the head – IS.VERY.GROSS!

    Other disgusting things left behind in toilets are: wee drip stains, droplets of menstrual you-know-what, crap – yuck, yuck, yuck!

    Why don’t people practise toilet courtesy? The least they could do is FLUSH! It’s not like they are PAYING! for the water!

    And some people find the need to take a ‘shower’ on the toilet bowl and end up wetting the entire toilet in the process.

    I did warn you this post is gross.

    So – what’s the worst thing that got left behind for you?

  • Done Is Better Than Perfect

    Such words of wisdom.

    It deserves a spot on my Passing Thoughts – since I am yet to come up with my new years’ resolution. And I can’t very well be CONTEMPLATING my New Year’s Resolution for the rest of the year.

    Speaking of which – my new year’s resolutions just needs to be done! That is – after all better than perfect!

  • Chicken Parts – Definition at KFC

    I have been having an unsettling craving for KFC for 2 weeks. I succumbed and decided to pig-out, despite my fast-expanding waistline, post-festive-holiday season.

    The scenario at Kentucky Fried Chicken at Midvalley Megamall:
    KFC Girl: Good afternoon. May I have your order please.
    Me: I’d just like 2 piece chicken, Original Recipe. No breast meat, please.*
    KFC Girl: Ok. No drink? Anything else?
    Me: No thank you.

    So, I pay her, and she goes get my order.

    On my plate, she gives me one drumstick, and one chicken breast, the part with the BREAST bone, or rib-cage looking part .

    Me: I said, I don’t want chicken breast.
    KFC Girl: This is not breast meat. This is CHEST meat.
    Me: ??? (Speechless and in awe)

    She proceeds to pick up HER definition of breast meat and shows it to me. This is the other half portion which I also consider breast meat. This is the part with the soft bone.

    KFC Girl: This is BREAST meat. This one I give you is CHEST meat.

    Can anyone help me out here? Is what she said correct?

    I tried looking it up here, and it has pictures of breast meat, alright. And their pictures are as MY thoughts of what is breast meat.

    So, is there really breast meat AND chest meat? Or is she just pulling my leg?

    * I was told you cannot request for which part of the chicken you want. However, you can request for which part you DON’T want. Go figure!

  • Sleep vs. Exercise

    These are the facts on sleep:

    – If you do need to exercise in the morning – you shouldn’t do so at the expense of sleep. (This is my favourite fact)

    – On the other hand, from a different source – exercise early in the day. Exercise in the morning or the afternoon. Avoid exercise 6 hours before sleep. Exercise stimulates the body and aerobic activity before bedtime may make falling asleep more difficult.

    – Women sleeping less than 7 hours a night had increased risk of coronary events compared to those averaging 8 hours of sleep a night.

    – The best time to go to bed is between 9pm to 12am.

    And these are the facts on exercise:

    Afternoon exercise is a good way to prevent injury and get maximum performance.

    – Don’t exercise at least 90 minutes after a heavy meal.

    Given such information, I should ideally go to bed at 11pm, so that I can wake up at 7am after 8 hours of sleep. And if I need to exercise, I should do so at 5pm – 6 hours before I sleep. But I don’t get off work that early! Hardly anybody gets off work that early.

    And since I am not a morning person, there is no way I can sleep at 10pm, to wake at 6am for my exercise. Going back to the point where we shouldn’t exercise at the expense of sleep.

    And when the heck am I suppose to have my dinner?

    Well, I suppose we can’t have it all. The most important thing about exercise is that we do some. It’s far less important what we do and when we do it.

    The best time for all of us to exercise is the time that is free of interruptions, when we have sufficient energy and body temperature, and that can allow us to exercise as consistently as possible over the long term.

    And since I sometimes have problems sleeping, tossing and turning for hours and sometimes even needing to resort to artificial means of getting sleep I thought I’d share this information that I came across the internet;

    Tips on getting a good night’s sleep:

    • Follow a consistent bedtime routine.
    • Establish a relaxing setting at bedtime.
    • Get a full night’s sleep every night.
    • Do not go to bed hungry, but don’t eat a big meal before bedtime either.
    • Avoid alcohol, foods or drinks that contain caffeine, and any medicine that has a stimulant, prior to bedtime.
    • Avoid any rigorous exercise within six hours of your bedtime.
    • Make your bedroom quiet, dark and a little bit cool.
    • Get up at the same time every morning.
