email threads

email threads
i love a good email thread. take 10 of your friends who regularly check their email at work, a topic that all recipients have an opinion about - presto change-o you've got the best quick escape for the middle of a tough work day.

normally the subject of the email thread is irrelevant after 5-6 emails, because someone strikes a tangent that everyone follows. most of the responses are 1 liners, every 10-15 minutes your inbox gets a few new messages, and holding your laughter is sometimes impossible within your dead silent office job. you have to play off the laughter with a fake cough or learn to do the silent laugh, which is pretty embarrassing if you are caught in the middle of.

the beauty of this phenomenon is that that it's not something that you can force into creation. the best email chains are organic and all inclusive. each recipient has to be close to or on their email during the short few hours that the email chain is alive. the chain is hot for a short period of time, and it's almost an intense moment to juggle anything else while the emails keep coming in.

then there's always that token person who was missing from the email chain, and returns to see their iphone or blackberry or inbox has 64 new email messages, all new from the last hour or so.

small things like this really brighten my day.

tent is waterfall and an spc



i moved to la around this time last year. i was overworked, ate take-out and more take-out, and never once broke a sweat due to exercise.

i'm back in sf and life is different now. i am not overworked, thus i have time, thus i can cook -and thus work off the extra weight i've accumulated. but how?!? join a gym? lypo-suction? live like hong and eat tuna out of a can with crackers for lunch and dinner (nothing for breakfast)?

nope. i assess the situation, and act accordingly.

i work on the 11th floor of a 22 story building. buildings have stairs, and i have time. so started a short routine a few weeks ago. you've guessed it! walk the stairs! at the end of my work day, i take the elevator down to floor 1, and walk the stairs to the top. then turn around and walk down. instead of stairs i could take a walk outside, or do something elsewhere but it's cold, rainy, windy, etc. outside, and other places are further from work than say, the stairwell. the stairs are always the same temperature, and they're dry! and to top it all off, nobody is ever in the stairwell!

the whole trip is about 15 mins, but boy is it tough. the first few times my legs were shaking at the end, i had to sit down! and the day after, were my legs tired.

however, this isn't the total of my "lose the la weight" plan, it's simply the start. i won't disclose the future plans just yet as i haven't solidified them, however i do plan to fit comfortably back in my work clothes once again!
