So, what have I been doing with my time, you ask? Well, to start with... the aforementioned healing. It looks a lot like this except I am on the chair too. Covered in a blanket. And likely sleeping. I have to give thanks to my Dad for the loan of the Sleep Chair. It's powers of healing and napping are strong!

from surgery is my idea of a funny joke.
I have restarted reading "Talent is Overrated" by Geoff Colvin. It only sounds like a pessimistic book. It's purpose is to explain "what really separates world-class performers from everybody else". The book discusses a very interesting premise: that there is no such thing as a "natural talent". That "talent" is just really hard work and an ass-load of practice and perhaps the incentive to succeed. What it also suggests is that success is not limited by a person's intelligence or memory- it's not just for super smart people. (Yeah, us regular people have a hope!) I haven't finished the book yet but I am enjoying the read so far.
I've been playing my favourite new app on my ipod touch: SpellTower. I tell you this is an additive game. I have wasted a lot of time on this over the past week or so. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Scott and I also have a new pass time and a new friendly competition... but more on that tomorrow. In the mean time, I guess I have some knitting to do.
