A few days ago I was sitting with some friends and we were reminiscing about what we were doing last year at the same time and someone uttered the enevitable: "Oh my God, is that a year ago already?!?".

Maybe we just have different perceptions of time. I, for one, am definitely surprised that writing this entry has taking me only 5 minutes. It felt more like 20! So in effect I live my life 4 times slower than others - at least while blogging.
