Frieda 09-08-2008 04:39 AM

my employer wants me to register on linkedin, but that also implies putting my name up on the internet.. there are a few people with my name so i guess i should be ok..

then there's facebook on which some of my friends hang out, and hoffspace which i am not a member of. really, i'm not.

i'm just not so sure if it's actually useful!

Stephi_B 09-08-2008 08:48 AM

Myspace, it pays off but not in $, but it getting to know about interesting people, bands, projects & stuff, most recently I learned about a cool gallery currently located just a bit down my very street. I walk past the place twice I day, but I had no clue until this artist requested my friendship, just the same with one of my fav bar/lounges meanwhile.

I think I've registered at Facebook some ages ago, but I forgot the password, then I am also at Lokalisten and StudiVZ (similar to Myspace), but only cos my sisters forced me to, so I can check out their party videos, their newest flirt etc ;) Otherwise I don't use them.

oh my, yes, I'm a social networking whore.

myspace: local friends - they use the bulletin app for broadcast messages about parties or local happenings.

facebook: weirdly, every damn person I've ever met or taken class with in my entire life, starting with pre-kindergarten. I'm not a seeker - these people find me and friend me and then do nothing else to bug me, generally - but how weird is it that e.g. Tenaya from grade 2, now living in Miami, is part of my world again?

linkedin: I have a presence but I don't use the site. sometimes people link to me, and I keep my profile nice and professional for the googlers.

flickr: easier to upload my pix here to share than any other method. I have a pro account.

youtube: takes an age to upload and the flash conversion algorithm is blocky, but it's the easiest video site to share either here or on a blog.

vimeo: flukey - I get failed uploads more often than youtube, but there's a better conversion algorithm and I can allow others to download the original file.

blip: more stable than vimeo - I upload here as well - what the hell.

twitter: haven't used it in, apparently, 78 days. don't miss it.

hoffspace: I'll join today the better to stalk Frieda :) cuz I don't believe she's not signed up there :)

MoJoRiSin 09-09-2008 02:30 PM

xfox 09-14-2008 02:43 PM

What is your favorite government regulation and why?

I think mine are FDA 21 CFR Part 812

especially if I have trouble sleeping

lukkucairi 09-14-2008 03:33 PM

the entirety of the USCIS - or do I have to pick a single rule under their aegis?

Frieda 09-14-2008 03:47 PM

woops

Frieda 09-14-2008 03:50 PM

wet bescherming persoonsgegevens, law to protect personal data (aka the right to remain anonymous)

Although it might still be interesting to hear what the rest of you have been eating....

Frieda 09-16-2008 08:04 AM

sooo what's my kcal count?? let's hear my malnutrition verdict :D

Stephi_B 09-16-2008 08:38 AM

Let's see.... I nourished

2 vollkornbrötchen with cheese
1 twix
several cups of white tea
1 vollkornbrötchen with egg
(all brötchen with tomato, cucumber and a bit butter,
from the machine, but these uni cafeteria folks know how to make brötchen
.... meanwhile ;))
1 thai noodle soup with green curry
2 glasses grape juice
****
2 coffee with milk
1 ciabatta brötchen with orange marmalade
1 roiboos vanilla tea

Yeah, a bit brötchen-leaning....

well, that included two dinners and an "early breakfast" (4am) and a "late breakfast (9am) - but I eat often but not very much at a time, so there's a difference between the 2tbsp of tuna with capers and the 1 tbsp of tuna salad...

oh what the hell :p

brightpearl 09-16-2008 11:56 AM

Actually, lulu, your eating habits are a lot like mine...grazing. It can work really well. So can one meal a day, just depends.

Frieda, I will estimate calories for you, but you're going to have to give me a day or two..I have a lot of things due on Thursday and a couple of exams...

but my first impression thought is if you had the yogurt and nectarines and added in some dark green salad, it looks better than average!

YsaPur EsChomuw 09-16-2008 12:08 PM

a chocolate roll
a sweet bun filled with poppyseed mix
an apple
a litre of lime falvoured rooibos tea
my colleague's wedding pastries (can't remember the exact number, but more than five)
unidentifiable canteen soup at work (there was some smoked meat in it and yucky noodle-like pieces of pasta)
fried tofu with peas, carrots and cabbage (canteen menu)
chocolate
four fresh walnuts (found on my way home)
another apple

... and it's 5 p.m. so the day isn't over yet.

I'll probably eat another apple
drink tap water
and have either bread with French spread
or cook polenta with cheese and chili. (That is, if I don't feel too lazy, which I usually do.)

oh no worries.. it's about 1320 and would've been 1600 with the yoghurt & nectarines ;) :p

brightpearl 09-16-2008 07:02 PM

^Well, it depends on what your usual intake is, but I've heard some nutritionists say that if you cut too many calories at one time, your body may go into "starvation mode" and respond by adjusting two particular hormones in an effort to conserve resources...one will function to make it harder for fat to leave your fat cells, and the other will function to make it easier to store fat in your fat cells. I know some people who don't seem to have had that response, but if you go on a big diet and don't lose weight, try eating more for a bit, and then start exercising a little more and cut 200 calories at a time. When you plateau again, cut 200 more, and add in more exercise...

blah blah blah.
:D

Your photos always look great. Don't worry about it too much.

this is the only part i want to remember

T.I.P. 09-16-2008 11:40 PM

so lessee, 24 hours, eh?

pasta & arrabiata sauce with a generous amount of parmesan cheese on top
0.5 avocado
0.5 tomato
olive oil & balsamic vinegar
1 coffee with 2 sugars
1 bowl soy milk & whole foods raisin granola
6 pieces of sushi (california roll), soy sauce & ginger
1 cup of fries with wasabi mayo
0.5 packs of those red gummy strawberry flavored candies
3 pieces of bean desserts
1 box full of various stuff from the hot bar at whole foods: edamame, white cabbage, indian stuffs in curry, brown rice, bit of mac&cheese, some seaweed just to see what it tastes like (blech), couscous, and other delightful stuff. 1.19 lb total says my receipt (holy cow that's a bit much maybe. oh well.)
1 glass of italian soda, way more sugary than i had thought it would be

Brynn 09-17-2008 12:07 AM

Okay, good advice. That explains a lot.

Breakfast:
coffee
a big pile of celery with a Tbsp of cream cheese and a Tbsp of almond butter

Lunch:
a blended 'green" drink
Smelled:my husband's fried spam sandwich he ate right in front of me.
Then: a slice of processed ham eaten in protest of the green drink

Snack:
a handful of sunflower seeds, and a bowl of cherry tomatoes from the garden
Looked at: a chocolate bar but did not consume.
Looked at: feta cheese but then thought "eh."
Looked at and inhaled at the seams of the box but did not open: Cheezits
Engaged in: separating my egoic desire to eat when not actually physically hungry from Who I Really Am, as well as squelching desire to berate husband for buying Cheezits for the kids and deciding to not take it as "a savage attempt to personally sabotage me" but rather to see it objectively as an unconscious act of Not Thinking Things Through Entirely.

Dinner:
green drink
left over quinoa with chicken, mushyrooms, red onions and curry
salted avocado with rice crackers

However, the evening is not yet over. I am looking forward to drinking a large glass of water instead of eating that bar of milk chocolate my husband left lying around, which has absolutely nothing to do with me and I don't even know why I brought it up.

Jack Flanders 09-17-2008 02:13 AM

^^( yay - another celery eater! and what does your *green drink* consist of?)

oh nono, i've lost 10kg since last november, 12 kg was planned for this november to reach a weight of 56 kg and i'm going to make it easily :) i am losing weight because i'm only eating 200kcal less on a high carb diet. 1800 is normal for me because i don't exercise.

i know i'm not overweight, just needed to shape up a bit so i would fit into my clothes again! :)
