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.
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 stole this image from my cousin’s Facebook page.
She was encouraging her children not to feel the need to follow what everyone else is doing — to strike out on their own.
I couldn’t agree more.
But here’s another thing to keep in mind — not only do we
see the lone bird first, it’s far easier to take a shot at him. So if you take a different route, be prepared to defend your choice.
(Don’t worry — it’s
totally worth it.)

While The Sticky Egg is no doubt your favorite egg-y blog — thank you for that — chances are you prefer eggs cooked in a somewhat different style.
But what does your favorite egg prep say about you?
An eggs-ceptional amount.
MindLab International researched the psychology behind this consumer choice in a study conducted for the British Egg Industry Council. Here is what they found your egg choice says about you:
Poached egg-eaters — outgoing and happier than most.
Boiled egg-eaters — disorganized and at the greatest risk of getting divorced.
Fried egg fans — have a high sex drive (!!) and usually hail from the ‘skilled working class’ (so British, right?).
Scrambled eggs — preferred by people who are guarded and without children.
Omelettes — are self-disciplined.
Strangely, the study didn’t say what a preference for The Sticky Egg says about you….
Brilliant? Good looking? I’d say that’s a pretty safe bet.

Two images dominated my Facebook newsfeed this morning, with very differing points of view:
What to do…what to do?
The latter is certainly louder, with its bright yellow color and bold font. But the former harkens back to childhood memories of simpler times, when sermons were about far more exotic sins.
Perhaps a poll is in order. Which philosophy will you espouse on this Manic Monday?

Dear Time Warner Cable: Two is not enough.
(As in the number of HD shows I can record concurrently per DVR.)
I have always been aware of this restriction. But there will come a night — like tonight, Sunday night — when I have three shows in one given time slot that I want to watch and/or record.
And I’m forced to make
Yes, I know some or all of these programs may be available online. But call me old-fashioned — I like watching my favorite shows on my big ol’ LCD TV.
Not on my laptop or iPad. Unless forced.
And this ‘two program limit per DVR’ is forcing me to
not watch television in the comfort of my own living room.

If you’re looking for the first robins of spring where you live…
They’re all in Central Park.
I noticed a large gathering of robins on the Great Lawn when I was walking Rory this morning. They were spaced out in an almost geometric pattern, standing very still.
It looked much like the start of some sci-fi films, just before the aliens land…or creatures burst through the earth after being buried in pods for centuries.
Perhaps they were exhibiting the bird behavior that mathematician John Nash studied as a student at Princeton, which was dramatized in the movie A Beautiful Mind, starring Russell Crowe.
Of course, there is one other reason the birds could have been standing there on the Great Lawn in the early morning –

Truly bizarre holidays are colliding!!
It’s Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent on the Christian calendar, so you’ll be hearing — and seeing — a lot about that today.
It’s also National Margarita Day. So those of you who are thinking about giving up liquor might want to pause and reconsider.
Actually, it’s International World Thinking Day, Be Humble Day, and Walk the Dog Day, too…
Might I suggest the following order of events?
Walk the dog.
Think hard about what you’re giving up for Lent, if anything. (Hey —
Downton Abbey is off the air for months…isn’t that penance enough?) Be humble about your decision. (Translation: no need to mention it
every day.) Have a drink.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
