happy new year and updates

For those who follow the personal side of this blog, here are some updates.

  • I'm writing this on my new netbook! It's this one, a Lenovo IdeaPad S10, in black. I don't know if another used ThinkPad would have been a better buy, but I really need something small and light, and I'll just have to see how long it lasts. The screen is excellent and the keyboard is almost full size (about 80%). My typing is a little clumsy right now but I'm sure I'll adjust in no time.

  • We bought a six-year-old dryer from a friend. It works great, and I feel a whole lot better about all the energy I'm not using.

  • I stopped looking for new gloves, and resigned myself to wearing old ones that I don't like. Then, in the supermarket, out of the corner of my eye, I saw some cheap imitations of the ones I loved and lost. Only $9.00! I snapped them up, and am happy. I also made a note to myself to order the real thing from L.L. Bean before next winter, when there's still a selection.

    Those are all the updates I can think of, at least until I get my grades.

    Happy New Year, friends of wmtc! Thanks for being here. I don't know what I'd do without you all. I wish us all peace of mind, good health and strong community for 2010.

    This time next year, may all the US war resisters be living safely in Canada.
