Haha, I can't watch Countdown and not think of the IT Crowd (assuming you recognise the quote on my sig).

Happens to me all the time at work. So much to do at any given moment and constantly multitasking....I'm often saying to myself "Now what else was I doing??"
Sounds weird, but I actually have to physically take a few steps back, or spin myself around a couple times to jog my memory. I suppose because so much of how I do things is kinesthetic in nature. (edit: I realize that sounds redundant )
Anyway, many times I don't remember at all until an hour or two later (usually when I'm on my break). If I don't do what I'm thinking right away it gets lost in the shuffle.
That makes a lot of sense actually (the taking a few steps back thing), as I once read it's related to motor memory and the like
Come to think of it, I should give it a try. I sometimes just repeat out loud what I'm supposed to do... but if I forget I'm supposed to remember something, that's as useless as it sounds
