Bullet Points

  • I'm now the proud owner of a wireless card for my laptop.
  • may have arrived two days ago at her destination, but her journey lives on. She sent me postcards! The ones from days 1 and 2 of her trip arrived today.
  • There must be many distraught students on the University of Toronto campus tonight. Thanks to a broken water main, Grad House will have no running water for 12-24 hours.
