At Tea Talk we briefly share how we are feeling and what we are thinking. Visit Ruth @ Celebrate Friendship for more

I’m having iced milk tea I picked from the food court as I navigated my way around  three departments at work today. It’s been two hours past lunchtime and it looks like I’m just going to ignore a rambling stomach for now. Things are in a dither over a couple of glitches and  I am keeping myself alert to prevent further mistakes.

This thin plastic glass is disposable obviously but it amuses me. It is adorned with Christmas socks and miniature wreaths, and there is in fact a Happy Christmas greeting on the other side of it. Well, I don’t mind having Christmas in my tea on a warm March afternoon.

I’m feeling abruptly awake after discovering a major memory malfunction on my folder in our local computer network. Thanks to savvy academic machinery I just have to encode a few commands and the problem is sorted.

On my mind are speed and quality.  Technology may hasten things but it is still the human brain that determines qualitative accuracy when the day is done. I reflect on …

What good is speed if the brain has oozed out on the way? – Karl Kraus

There is more to life than just increasing its speed. – Mahatma Gandhi
