The End of the Internet

Here is a breakthrough in the history of web browsing. After months of absolute inactivity on a dumb projects (9 months to be precise, still counting, although not for long), I have reached it!

Here is a sneak preview:

Mind you, when I say inactivity, that is not exactly true. I have been intensively browsing, exploring the web. My typical daily web surfing routine includes a thorough press review (usually done in the morning, whilst attending boring conference calls) with Le Monde, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Liberation, Ha'aretz as well as liberal amounts of Yahoo! Actualites (the people section too... several times a day I confess).
When the afternoon comes, I have to broaden my horizons... Wikipedia is a great knowledge quencher. In spite of inaccuracies and some debatable articles, I have to admit I am a great fan of the Random Article function! Sometimes I am so bored that I can press the button several times a day.

Being food obsessed, I also spend a lot of time on various food blogs, looking for recipes that I will most likely never compose, yet I am convinced that this will turn me into a fantastic cook one day.

I am very much in favour of cooking based on recipes, not per a specific recipe. Ok, sometimes improvisation and cooking do not go well together, but overall the results can be great! My all-time fave is of course the Rolls-Royce of food blogging, the famous Chocolate & Zucchini, written by the talented Clotilde Dusoulier (BTW, I strongly recommend her book, it is a must have. I even queued in Dean & Deluca to have it signed last May during her book tour). I also like Requia, Mercotte, and a few others.
I should look for a job, I know. I had one though (see below). But I will keep on looking. That is my summer resolution. Is it less painful than committing to lose those extra pounds to fit in your new bikini? I don't know.
But one thing is for sure: if I cut down on food website browsing, I will spend additional time sending out resumes. Therefore, I could possibly get a new job and make less (and eat less) petits pots de creme au chocolat, which in turn may positively affect my beach appearance!

Merci de te promener sur mon blog aussi ! Je découvre le tien grâce à Technorati !! Bonne chance pour trouver un nouveau job et aussi pour rentrer dans ton bikini ! S'il fait le même temps à NY qu'ici tu as peu de chance d'en profiter, tu peux manger sans remords un peu de bons desserts au chocolat !!
