I have never been good at naps.
I sleep very soundly at night, so I don’t often feel the need for one. And when I have taken one, I am groggy and dull for the rest of the day.
But today was different.
I returned last night from a quick business trip to Atlanta, and had a tennis lesson this morning. By 2pm I was struggling to keep my eyes open. Then I wondered…why fight it?
Three hours later, I awoke feeling great. And I don’t think I will have any problems sleeping tonight.
Maybe I’m getting the hang of this!

I live in New York City and am a Time Warner Cable customer.
That means, when I return from Atlanta Saturday and try to watch the episode of Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that I am DVRing tonight, I may be greeted instead with….
If the goobers from CBS and TWC can’t come to an agreement by midnight tonight, that is.
You guys had better get your sh#t together…’cause if I miss my Craigy Ferg –
Heads are gonna roll!
Thank you for your attention.

Do you find it so stressful to shop, cook and clean dishes that you would rather not eat all?
Rob Rhinehart does.
He’s a software engineer in Atlanta who found it hard to find time for all food-related activities.
But he did find time to research what nutrients his body needs to survive and created Soylent, a drink mixture of vitamins and minerals.
Now he drinks Soylent for 90 percent of his meals. He doesn’t find the nutrition drink boring and has actually lost the taste for other foods…although he does say in his blog that he still enjoys sushi.
I’m guessing his taste buds have surrendered…
Or just don’t have the strength to complain.

I’ve never watched The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Or Beverly Hills. Or Atlanta or Dallas or Miami
Thank you, no.
But I’m pretty sure we have that reality show franchise to thank for the ‘Everyday Collection’ TV ad from Target.
Gotta love that ‘tude.
Thank you, Housewives.

I’m winging my way to Atlanta today, and will be occupying my usual aisle seat.
Only this time, it will be doctor recommended.
The American College of Chest Physicians released new guidelines that suggest sitting in a window seat is a risk factor for DVT (deep vein thrombosis), dangerous blood clots that can develop in your legs on long plane flights.
People who sit in window seats have the potential to move less than those who sit in the aisle. And it’s really the lack of movement that raises your risk factor for DVT, not your seat.
Now, I sit in aisle seats whenever I can simply because I don’t like to be closed in. And in my experience, passengers in the window seat have no problem asking me to get up and let them out. Repeatedly. Several times a flight. It’s like the people with bladder issues choose the window seat.
So I think they’ll be fine. And I will, too. Because they’re there to keep me on the move.
