Today I Want...

There are two things that I want today. The first is a watch that I love but probably won't get - after all, I do have a gorgeous Coach watch that I LOVE and that goes with everything. The second is a pen that I might really get...yes, a pen.

1) How beautiful is this Tortoise shell watch by Michael Kors? It's cool without being really trendy, and it would look so cute with so many things...

2) The Pulse Smart Pen by Livescribe - that's right, a smart pen! It's a computer in a pen, one that records voices as you write, and that can transcribe your notes right onto the computer! You can hit playback and listen to, say, part of a lecture that you missed. How cool is this? You have to watch the whole video at the Livescribe website - it is really, truly cool...


Adventures in Food

In honor of my brother, who recently found out he's allergic to nearly every food under the sun (including carrots - come on now, who's allergic to carrots??), I've been trying to eat one new food a week, if not more, and break out of my comfort zone. This week's food was pretty far out there - buckwheat pancakes! I'll post pictures of them soon (because they look a bit funky), but you know what? They're pretty tasty! They're more like a dry cake consistency than a pancake consistency, but I ate them with spray butter and Smucker's sugar-free syrup, and they were pretty good. And btw, Smucker's is the best sugar-free syrup that I've found...it tastes just like syrup, unlike some of those other sugar-free syrups, like Eggo. Ick.
