Memory lapse?

I think my memory is going. My short term memory. The thing that lets me retain instructions from my wife, for instance. I know she told me I have to do something but I have little to no idea what that thing might be. Honey, if you're reading this, shoot me an email, ok?

My memory for blog material is also suffering. I think I need to get a pad or something. I see all this cool and interesting stuff and I want to blog about said stuff but something happens. Sometime between thinking its cool and getting to my keyboard, I lose the thread. I get here and can't recall at all what I wanted to write about. *sigh*

Court went well yesterday. I do remember that much. My client was pleased and I got a preliminary injunction to shut down a former officer from competing with my client after said former officer admitted to stealing file and confidential business information. Injunctive relief work is very consuming. It is all done on short notice and without the usual care you might take in preparing a serious application. Sometimes, it is all about the speed. And the speed, that my friends, is a rush.

So much of a rush that I was still happy this morning when I got to the gym and put up 70 pound dumbbells, 10 times, for my last set of chest press. That explains, in part, why it was difficult to dry my hair after my shower. You know you worked out hard when you can't dry your hair because your arms and chest are too pumped.

So, that's it really.

I think the memory loss is contagious.
Probably a massive viral infect spreading across the east coast.

At least that's the story I'm going with, 'cause the missus asked me to take care of a couple of things on the way home and I haven't the slightest idea what they were.

Of course she'll blame it on my "selective" hearing.

RP - sorry I missed you in New York - but I will be there on a more permanent basis most probably and I will surely take you out for a drink then! :)

As for the memory loss - someone once told me its all in the confidence. Pretend you have the best memory, and you will have it ;p

Its a long shot, but worth a try...

The other option is a REALLY handy To-do list system... there are lots out there... Like the cult of 'Getting things done' by David Allen... and his type of todo lists...

Also try green tea ;)
