Day 214- Like a Spoon

2 August 2011- My new mouse from Japan- a nice cordless model called (seriously) "Like a Spoon". It is a nice mouse to use, and since it is wireless, it doesn't matter that I prefer to use it left handed (the cleaners used to switch my old one back to the other side of the computer).

Postcard 95 - Russia

Received 28 July 2011, as part of the round robin. A postcard of St Petersburg, a city I would love to visit. I studied St Petersburg in college, when I was in Geneva. So the mention does bring back the faintly stressful air of being a mediocre french speaker in a post-graduate class (I can't beleive I was allowed to take it) all in French. I still remember the day the Professor informed me of the exam that I thought I wasn't going to take. Scary.
