This is what we're talking about at gDiapers. The gTribe on Yahoo now numbers 2,249. It is a vibrant community and we wouldn't be here without them. While we would love to take credit for it, we can't - it started with one customer and grew from there. And one day, I am going to get me a plane ticket and fly around this big brown land meeting everyone of them. How cool would that be?!
I am heading off to work in our Colorado branch this week. Many don't know we have a branch there. Not even Kim. Because in fact, there is no branch in Colorado. What there is , is more snow than you can poke a stick at and after a 10 year hiatus and as a birthday present from me wife, I am having a ski. (and squeezing in the odd email if my gPhone works at altitude)
To that end, herewith a neat way to deal with skis that have passed their prime.
Yodelei yodelo yodeleiyo to you all...
As I mentioned, previously, I am in the midst of a sleep experiment so I can get more out of my day.
No ice baths for me, rather I invested in a Sleeptracker. It is a watch, alarm and a device that tracks how many times in a night you are in a "nearly -awake" moment. "REM (rapid eye movement sleep" occurs when you are in the deepest of sleeps. These periods are the most regenerative.
There is a theory that there are more REM sleeps before midnight than after it. So for 3 weeks I have been going nye nye at 8.30 - 9pm (No more Gossip Girls and Dirty Sexy Money - bummer...) and setting my watch for 4am. So I am averaging 7 hours of sleep. I was doing 7 hours in 2007 but they were the wrong 7 as they started at 11 pm.
The Sleeptracker's alarm clock works by waking you up within 10, 20 or 30 minutes of your desired wake up time. It records your nearly awake moments and goes off at one of those times rather than while you are in deep REM.
And blow me down, it actually works. Last night I had nearly awake moments at the following times. There were four before midnight and 7 after midnight.
I set it to go off at 4am but it woke me at 3.38. I have never felt better. The average number of minutes between nearly awake moments has increased from 12 minutes to a new world record last night of 33 minutes.
And if you don't believe me, watch Dr Phil:
Australia's beloved Kylie Minogue (seen recently at gDay LA, has just launched her new single after battling cancer last year. And yes, she really is just shy of 5 foot tall...
