Leaving it all behind...

I'm taking a break from work this coming week.

Plan to catch up on some Wii gaming, and spend some hours on the 17" Mac Book Pro that my team acquired for research. Or maybe not. Just focus on my gaming, gym workouts (beeefcakkkeee!) and also catch up on some of the books i've bought recently.

Gaming-wise, i really need to complete Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii, and then start on Okami which is a really beautiful game.

Just today, i was at Fred Meyer's and i saw the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle winking at me........ @@ ! Seelllf control is required!


A very funny book bought recently was "The Groucho Letters: Letters from and to Groucho Marx". Loved all his movies and old time radio shows and i'm sure i'll be laughing my head off when i start reading this.

Another book i really want to read accompanied by my mp3 player will be "The Stone Roses (33 1/3)". The Stone Roses is one of my favorite albums of all time, and i definitely would like to read how Alex Green, the author, think about this band and how their music is so everlasting and did indeed changed British music forever.

I also bought a book called "The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything" by the other Stephen Covey. I agree with the main message of the author: that trust has a bottom-line impact on results and that when trust goes up, agility (speed) goes up, and want to find out what other factors will be impacted if trust isn't there in a team/org/company/family.

Can i complete them all? Probably.
