Gardening in my patch!

My new blog-project: The Veggie Patch is up and running!
Here are some samples of its headers in action. New veggie characters get added to the header every Wednesday & Sunday. Watch the patch grow! My current veggie faves are the 2 featured on the latest header.

Learn new fun facts about the veggies we take for granted, today!

On a more personal note, I decided to start this project as a way of promoting vegetables (a community service of sorts) as I've turned over a new leaf.
(eating habits-wise) :)

Remarkable Remakeables

Talent does not grow over overnight.
IMHO, I'd say its 45% love for what you do, 45% persistent hardwork, 5% burning curiosity & lastly, another 5% of innate perception! It's amazing what one can do when you've put your mind to it.

Say hi to one such talented person, right here> Amy of Remakeables!
A very dear friend and an upcoming brilliant illustrator! Her illustrations are not only pretty to the eyes, they carry weight in their concepts too. It's always a pleasure reading her quirky, little blog-shop, it never fails to inspire & put a smile on my face at the same time.

A big hug & congratulations to finding your calling, Amy!
Since nothing great ever came easy, it looks like we've only just begun!

5 Random/ Weird things about me

Tagged, I have been, by the amazing Amy! Time to spout some quirky randomness. These come in a number of five's:

1) Instead of lazying around in bed, running to the loo or doing some stretch-ups, the first thing I must do in the mornings (after I open my eyes), is to switch on my computer! (SEE! I think that the micro processor human-fusion idea is such a lovely one!)

2) I nibble all chocolate sides of a Kitkat bar before proceeding to dislodge each layer of wafer. All the wayers (wafers+layers) and all their thin chocolate glory will then be savoured, devoured, slowly. This procedure mostly only applies to Kitkat and certain other wafer-y chocolate bars.

3) Whilst speaking I tend to mash up 2words together as demonstrated in 'wayer' :) I also swap the first alphabets of two words around. For instance, I have two good friends named "Jarod & Kelly". Spoonerism, the name of this verbal boo-boo, made me say Karod+Jelly :P (I'm sorry my dears, that was the worstest-funniest example I have!)

4) My i-pod has only one primary function; being a paperweight. (don't bother asking me about it)

5) I used to really dislike vegetables when I was a kid. My mum had to bribe me with candy each time she spooned spinach in my mouth. Can you imagine going without veggies daily for years? I still have all my body parts-organs with me but I was missing out on a whole lot of good stuff! The great news is I've changed me eating habits for the better! (thanks to a certain special someone) Oh the irony! I guess I like them well enough that I am even running a fresh vegetable blog! )

Now, here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names & links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Harlo there June, Liann, Ju, Jac & Nick! You've been tagged!
May you go forth & spread some quirkiness!

TA-DAH!! I'm here!! Back Again!

It's oh so good to be back!!
If there is such a thing as an internet god, thank u thank u thank u!! On top of being swamped with 100 tons of work, my net connection had been down for over a week. Throughout that horrible period, I discovered how much I am connected to the net & my computers.

I had no inkling I was that dependent on them. No, I am not a nerd (neither am I a reclusive with a cave) & I am not obsessed . (btw, how would anyone define a nerd nowadays anyways? with everyone else using laptops or wireless connections too?) It was during my net-less free moments, I pondered how much time I spend on either a comp or the net?

The staggering answer is listed below.....

I practically spend over 85% of the day infront of a screen. Doesnt help that my work requires me to be infront of one all the time! It IS part of the job! I'm not really going to break my computer usage down into percentages & charts and graphs with cute little icons. (mmm.hmmm... that's an idea right there!.... nah...)

From the moment I wake to the moment just before I close my eyes, I am right smack infront of one. Maybe I should consider being fused to a high-end microprocesser with a ultra-fantastic speedy net connection?! MMM.MMMmmmm...
