To explain the concept, let's just say the grand total of all ou think equals 100%. A certain percentage of the time you think about your family, your work, your play, running, blogging, etc.
The following pie chart illustrates what I've been thinking about this week.
Yes, thinkin about what and when I will eat and drink next consumes a great deal of my thinking.
Most of my mindshare this evening has been spent trying to figure out how to retrieve my iPod shuffle from a most unfortunate spot.
See that little green corner. That's the shuffle, which has sadly fallen through a ridiculously narrow spot between the stovetop and the cabinet. At least it's not in water...
So, who has some ideas for how to retrieve the sucker. I've tried double-sticky tape on the end of a long stick.
I made the long stick by taping together the cardboard part of three hangers. Go ahead, call me MacGyver.
I also tried a magnet, taped to the end of the wire part of the hangar, until I cleverly realized: 1) the iPod shuffle is NOT magnetic and 2) putting a magnet next to it was probably not such a wise idea.
So, maybe I recsind the MacGyver comment...
I also thought about using the vacuum cleaner, but the space between the stovetop and the cabinet is really narrow and the hose won't fit (That's what she said...ba dum dum).
Oh, and it's not my fault that it's down there, other than I left it on the counter.
So, if anyone has any really clever ideas for how to retrieve objects from small spaces, please let me know. Walter has already nixed my drilling holes in the cabinets though.
* In all honesty, I really thought I'd lost the shuffle on the plane last Friday when I flew to Oakland. I just couldn't bring myself to share with you that I'd "lost" another music playing device. I didn't discover it's whereabouts until today, which is why I didn't spend the entire FREEKIN' WEEK trying to figure out how to get it.
