Just one cup?

Did you know that a newborn baby has about one cup of blood in his/her body?

Strange Friday

My coworker kept saying to me, "Today is so strange..."

It was one of those days where stress loomed and the weather was dismal. One where I could list all the crappy things that happened, but then it turned around (mostly due to attitude). It became one where I enjoyed camaraderie and the kindness of others, and appreciated the small details of the day, like listening to a good song at the right moment, zonking out for a short nap on the subway, watching my teammates idly slump back on the couch before going back to work, and getting offered some crisp cherry tomatoes for a post-dinner snack. 

Happy Friday! :)

The transformation continues tomorrow! GUNG HO!

Give or Take

If you have the means to and are capable, give blood.

Everyone takes a nap during lunch

Taiwanese try to utilize their full lunch-hour: Eat, then nap. This is no pansy nap. I'm talking about a full-fledged, grab-your-pillow, put-on-your-eyemask, everybody-quiet-down nap. 

I will admit I have taken one 15 minute nap so far, and it was much needed. (But yes, I'd like to point out that it was a pansy nap.) Ask me in a few months. Maybe I will get used to it and succumb to the Pavlov's dog theory that makes all Taiwanese get so sleepy once lunch-time hits.
