strange thing 1: my grandparents insist on using the speaker option for the house phone, so we can hear what they're saying all over the house -- now speaker is what you use when your hands are full. my grandparents' hands are never full.
strange thing 2: when we use the house phone to call someone, the wireless goes down. when someone calls from outside, this does not happen. or maybe it's a speaker-related issue.
What I like:
miniature mechanical circuses (a la the one I saw today at the Ringling Bros. Museum today)
Conde Nast Traveler magazine
London, no matter what New York magazine says
what I don't like:
how much work I'm NOT getting done
