Yesterday I realized that , though I lead mostly an unorganized and

Yahoo movies (I always keep a tab on Box Office collections), Amazon, Wired
Google news etc.

reading on the pot. I prefer to brush and take bath immediately after that.
By the time I am picking my clothes to wear I usually am hungry. I prefer to
have my meals early in the morning. Having breakfast and lunch is not for me.

problems and to-dos.
Only then, only then, do I make calls or take calls and start yet another
