How to peel post-it pads?

If you work in an office, there are good chances u know what post-it pads are…

A Post-it note is a piece of stationery with a re-adherable strip of adhesive on the back, designed for temporarily attaching notes to documents and to other surfaces: walls, desks, computer displays, and so forth. While now available in a wide range of colors, shapes, and sizes, Post-it Brand notes are most commonly a 3-inch (76 mm) square, canary yellow in color. The notes use a unique low-tack adhesive that enables Post-it Brand notes to be easily attached and removed without leaving marks or residue, unless used on white boards.  (Reminds me of 3 Idiots)

they are very helpful but not really convenient to use. At least to me. I have major trouble peeling them. Whenever I peel one, the end normally gets curved, Probably because of the speed.

So I tried to peel it slowly. It again curved at the last point of contact. : (

I tried to peel it really fast…like really really fast. It curved even more.

I tried to peel it at normal speed and then turn it …. It didn’t curve much, but left a mark.

I am still in process of finding a curve-free way to peel my post it. Any suggestions?

Farmville. :)

I am hooked to this game on Facebook called Farmville. It is not just a game. It is so much more. I, like many other city-born-never-been-to-an-actual-village ppl have a fantasy of owning a farm, cultivating crops, riding on tractors, sleeping under the stars, removing water from the well…etc. How long will I actually living like this is a different question but do I want to do something like this…the answer is yes from not only the bottom of my heart from my full heart 😉

Farmville gives me a placebo satisfaction of sorts. I have a well, animals which include horses, goats, cows, (pink and white), rabbits, ducks and swans, windmill, cottage to stay, rest tent, garden shed, pond, picnic set, maple tree, lime tree, orange tree, apple, apricot, banana, dates, plum, lemon, pomegranate, peach, fig and olive. It is amazing. I show my farm to my parents, aunts, my friends, my sis.

My excitement about owning this farm is so contagious, that if I forget to tell my aunt which veggie have I grown, she asks automatically. I absolutely love playing it. Come visit my farm and be my neighbour there. here is the link. http://apps.facebook.com/onthefarm/index.php?ref=logo

ME at my farm

visit it and let me know what u feel about it.

Dead sea is actually a lake!!!

Imagine my surprise when I read about this. I have always been fascinated by the dead sea as I can’t swim, I remember telling this as a kid that I will float in the dead sea once.

Recently I read that Dead Sea is actually a lake. It also called the Salt Sea is a salt lake in Jordan. The Dead Sea is 378 m (1,240 ft) deep, the deepest hyper saline lake in the world. It is also one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water, with 33.7% salinity. It is 8.6 times more salty than the ocean.

The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David.

The Jordan River is the only major water source flowing into the Dead Sea, although there are small perennial springs under and around the Dead Sea, creating pools and quicksand pits along the edges. There are no outlet streams. Rainfall is scarcely 100 mm (3.9 in) per year in the northern part of the Dead Sea and barely 50 mm (2.0 in) in the southern part. The Dead Sea zone’s aridity is due to the rainshadow effect of the Judean Hills.

There are two contending hypotheses about the origin of the low elevation of the Dead Sea. The older hypothesis is that it lies in a true rift zone, an extension of the Red Sea Rift, or even of the Great Rift Valley of eastern Africa. A more recent hypothesis is that the Dead Sea basin is a consequence of a “step-over” discontinuity along the Dead Sea Transform, creating extension of the crust with consequent subsidence. Around three million years ago what is now the valley of the Jordan River, Dead Sea, and Wadi Arabah was repeatedly inundated by waters from the Mediterranean Sea. The waters formed in a narrow, crooked bay which was connected to the sea through what is now the Jezreel Valley. The floods of the valley came and went depending on long scale climate change. The lake that occupied the Dead Sea Rift, named “Lake Sodom”, deposited beds of salt, eventually coming to be 3 km (1.9 mi) thick. According to geological theory, approximately two million years ago the land between the Rift Valley and the Mediterranean Sea rose to such an extent that the ocean could no longer flood the area. Thus, the long bay became a lake. The salt concentration of the Dead Sea fluctuates around 31.5%. This is unusually high and results in a nominal density of 1.24 kg/L.

Anyone can easily float in the Dead Sea because of natural buoyancy. In this respect the Dead Sea is similar to the Great Salt Lake in Utah in the United States. So in case I am unable to make it to Dead Sea, I will visit the Great Salt Lake. I wanna float.

Rose to banana

I was removing dry clothes from my balcony and saw this lovely looking cloud. It was like a rose…pure white rose and looked exquisite to me. I thought of clicking a snap. Bu the time I folded the t-shirt I had in my hand and went inside to get my cell, the cloud looked like a banana.

Imagine my frustration. Kidhar rose kidhar banana.

I guess it is life’s way of teaching me to quickly grab hold of happiness. Never take it for granted.

Oh how I wish I actually implement the lessons I learn. : )

ek min

how often have you heard someone say “bas ek sec”

lots i am sure.

y do people do this? both u and the person know that it going to take a lot lot longer than ek sec.

it can get so bugging. There are some who say “2 min” even when they know that the task will get over in half that time.  So …. bas…… aise hi????

Y mention any time in the first place.

There are so many other ways of saying it.

1 hmmm….let me check

2 brb

3 lets see

4 hang in there

5 Excuse me – there are a lot of ppl who use ek sec instead. don’t get me started on them 😐
