Actually, I think my eating habits deserve a stand-alone post; more on that later, but I can safely say that I'm probably the junkiest person you'll ever get to meet.
Besides putting on 5 kilos in the past few months, the reason why I've become health-concious all of a sudden is that there is a nice momentum building up in my stay-fit attitude, and I'm trying to capitalize on it. I've been exercising, swimming, and playing soccer almost daily in the past one and a half months. Prior to that, the last time I moved a muscle was May 2005 playing tennis and squash. Then I hurt my shoulder and that was about it. Add to it the fact that my Asthma doesn't help much. Also, I hadn't played soccer for probably 2 years, so you can imagine the soreness in my muscles and how banged up my knees and ankles are. The best part is that I finally could play continuously for 2 hours without playing goal keeper; in other words, taking a rest.
Finally; Disturbing news.
One day before his return to Kuwait after his yearly holiday in India, our driver's wife got struck by a car while walking on foot with him. She died from her injuries, leaving him and their 10-year old son behind.
He's been living with us for 15 years now. Hearing the news from mom sent chills through my spine. She described how broken down he sounded on the phone, and that kept him in my mind all day. My deepest condolonces to him and his family. I can't even imagine what's the future going to be like for their son. The poor man still asked my family not to bring someone else, and asked to be given a couple more weeks before returning to Kuwait. Clearly he's more desparate now to provide a living for his son.
Sad. Very, very sad indeed.

Only he, Heckard, is 8 years older and 6 inches shorter.
In the suit, he claimed a great deal of physical and emotional damage has been inflicted upon him in the past 15 years for looking like Mike. His friends and family always make fun of him for that; thus, challenging the popular notion that looking like someone like Michael Jordan is a compliment.
Anyway. He's suing Nike because it made MJ the icon he is, and suing MJ because he became .. well .. MJ. For that, he's seeking $800 million (yes, 6 zeros next to the 800) worth of damages.
He dropped the suit yesterday without stating any reasons. Could MJ have paid him hush-hush money? I mean .. he had a good case, did he not?
Please. Do not misjudge the guy. Take a look for yourself.
Poor Allen. Broke my heart :(
Actually, I think MJ has a good case if he counter-sues and says "you have no right to have my copyrighted face."
