15.7.08

And the countdown begins...


I'm thinking it might be time for me to retire. From blogging that is...!


This post is post number 85...which means I have 15 more to go before I reach 100. And at that point, I believe I will throw the towel in and call it quits.


So, to commemorate that point, let's look at 15 reasons why it's a good idea for me to call it quits...
1) The life of MoO has reached a plateau...which means that the cow hasn't had any (mis)adventures to report back and has to live vicariously through others! So let the stories continue...and they better be good coz' I'd like to live on the edge...through others!
2) No one wants to hear about my obsessive compulsive crazy self and re-arranging toilet paper rolls! Not to mention the use of same coloured pegs...or re-arranging coloured pens according to colours...and the list goes on...
3) There's only so far that cuteness can go...so no more stories of the fur-kids considering our puppies have already outgrown that phase and have become the hounds from hell. So this is potentially what it's like to have kids...hmmmmmm...
4) I already have visual enhancements (read: glasses) - let's not 'enhance' it anymore.
5) My tiny brain can only hold so much...and given that little bits have been dribbling out of my ears, I wouldn't trust it to hold anything too intelligent.
6) Work, work, work and more work. Let's not get started on work. We might be here all night. And day. And night...
7) I need to read. It's been such a long time since I've picked up a good book and had some brain food. Recently, I've been going through manga...now don't get me wrong, looking at pictures and having a really interesting storyline is a great way to de-stress but it's like feeding my brain chips when what it really needs is some meat and veggies!
9) How do you think you get RSI?
10) The law of diminishing returns. It's like ice cream...you know you want some but when you get too much ice cream, you wonder why you wanted some in the first place. So before we reach that point, I should cut my losses and look at perhaps chocolates...I'm sure I've got a block somewhere...hmmmm...
11) I blinked and it's now already halfway through the year. Where has the time gone? Maybe I need to get out more...and start doing other stuff...like go look for flute lessons already. I've got the instrument, what am I waiting for? (Note to self...2007 goal not achieved yet!!!) Just the other day, we went roller skating...and that was so much fun! I should get out more...
12) If I did less blogging, then I would be conserving energy and contributing to a greener environment! (Stop sniggering Izso, every littl' bit helps!)
13) Maybe this will make me pick up the phone and actually ring someone...hmmm...random thought: Did you know that VOIP calls can easily be hacked into?
14) Because blogging doesn't give me the same satisfaction anymore. The whole 'Been there, done that' thing I guess.
15) Just coz' I wanted to see if you would notice that number 8's missing! Now you're going to go back and check right? And then say...but hang on, that makes it 14! Well, the last reason is simply because I can. So there.

Hi,

Blogging is interesting. Depend why you do blogging? If you do for fun then calling a quit is not a big issue.

if you to give your experience to the community then calling it a quit might affect other people who learn something from you!

Depends i guess...

Cheers

Shoaib

moo,
I post one post a week when I used to post 2 post in a day.

Its the kind of thing we do once we get into the habit.

Blogging is now part of my life as a venue of expressing my thoughts. Its not really a columnist job which requires constant updates.

But again as you say, its yours and your decision.

Loosing your site as a reading area will in to some extent be a lost in my daily routine.

So what am I suppose to do in the alloted 10 minutes for moo's blogtime?

Shoaib: Thanks for your thoughts...I guess I do a bit of both...hmmm...

NinJaMoo said...

Excuses, excuses. Just admit it: you're a lazy cow, that's why!

Taknak jumpa! *pouts*

izso said...

Why would I snigger? Laugh out loud man! And cows apparently contribute to some 30% of the greenhouse gases because of their farts and burps. Now THATS funny!

As for RSI, RSI is because you're not taking precautionary measures.

1. Break often. Every 10 minutes and stretch.

2. Get a good sitting position, elbows by your side, hands positioned 90 degrees and no awkward movements for your hands and shoulders. Get proper feet elevation if they don't touch the floor and straighten your back. I have tender ligaments caused by RSI related pain so I know what I'm talking about.

3. See a doc about anti-inflammatory medication if you have symptoms of RSI. Eg- pain in the wrist, stiffness, discomfort in the fingers, etc.

4. And do something about it early. It's not something that'll go away!

Lastly - DON'T STOP BLOGGING. Just lower your post count if you absolutely must. We need to know whats going on in your life irregardless of significance. Like when you're gonna have kids and all. ;)
