Torturous Cookie Quest

Aaagh-despite today being one of the few days that I've had 'free' in the last few weeks, I am at my wits end. I have a million and one things I need to do and little motivation/organisation/goddam time to do any of them, and I keep finding myself wasting time (like now!), trying to stop myself, and then being unable to, then getting annoyed with myself and getting more and more stressed.
One of the million odd things I had to do today was bake cookies for the Green Action meeting tonight. Well I guess I didn't 'have' to, but I want them to like me, haha, and also I generally enjoy cooking stuff for people. So I decided to knock up a batch of vegan oaty currant cookies. I needed to get some vegan marg, caster sugar and light muscovada sugar. So I went to Maumoniats, who had the marg but not the sugar-no problems, thats what I expected. Clever me, I decided to ride the bike to the Co-op. Now, riding the bike is not an easy thing for me to do. I have no sense of balance and even less road sense. But I have this image of myself being one of those elegant looking boho girls that whizzes past me on the way to uni each morning, so I am desperate to improve. I managed to get to the Co-op with only a few car horns beeped at me, one near death experience and a lot of riding on pavements and down cul-de-sacs where no evil cars will kill me. In fact, when I reached the Co-op I was rather pleased with myself. Until I realised I didn't have the effing key to the effing bike lock. I was not a happy bunny. I considered leaving the bike propped against the wall, being really quick and trusting in humanity, but then I remembered I was in Hyde Park, noticed the scallies in the gold Corsa watching me, and realised that Graeme would be quite annoyed if I got his bike nicked. So I risked my life again and rode back. Only a bloody wall had seperated me from the caster and muscovada sugar! Why?! It was upsetting, believe me.
So I tried Abu Bakhars, who again had neither of the effing sugars, although they do have lovely veggie samosas so I bought 2 of them instead to make me feel better. Eventually I went to evil Jacksons, where they had caster sugar and 'light brown sugar' which I decided will have to do. And I made the cookies-they're OK although some of them decided to merge into a giant cookie monster. But so not worth the life threatening bike ride and the very very cold feet I got during said bike ride, that have still not thawed out.
Well, I guess now I should get on with the bazillion (yes, it's a bazillion now) things I must do. Seriously, why can't I just be content to go to uni and have a job-are all these societies and saving the world efforts really worth it? Bloody hope so.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
