I give myself periodic mental breaks at work throughout the day to calm my frazzled nerves and to keep me sane. I may be working late and working through lunch, but I try to at least get a couple two minute breaks in here or there. I'll read the news, blog surf, blog compose, peruse mental floss for an interesting fact, or type a quick e-mail to a friend.

Perfect. The article, of course, was titled "Best Dressed Penguins" (you can find it here if you're interested in a mental break of your own). How is it that the something that's helping me become un-crazy is also something that make other people think I am crazy. Coincidence? Or irony?
