The Coolest Pen!

So today this woman from the school comes by to drop a small box off at my desk. Hmm...intrigued I opened it to find this sincerely cool pen.
To start off with, it has the school name on it. Very nice!
Flip it over and guess what?! A laser pointer! So cool. But that's not all!!!
Screw it open and it has a USB! Maybe I am just easily amused but I really like this pen.

So I know the old saying goes that one should never shop when hungry, but I would like to add an addendum that when in China, one should never shop while hungry AND homesick. Or else this happens:
I am sufficiently ashamed of myself. I mean, yes, I did also buy some fresh fruit, chicken, rice, and more traditional Chinese foods, but for some reason as soon as I hit the imported goods section I couldn't help myself. *sigh* I gotta wean myself off this kind of stuff.

I commented on a classified ad on an expat site on a guy selling his bike. We should be meeting up tomorrow and if the bike looks ok, I'll probably buy it. Whoo.

I felt fine all day, but I started feeling very sick when I got home. My throat is sore, I have a headache and feel very tired and achy. I'm having some tea now. I hope I feel better by morning.

Lots O' Love,
Steph
