An article in today's New York Times about the remarkable 1,300-year-old lost & found system in Japan:
Children are taught from early on to hand in anything they find to the police in their neighborhoods. So most of the 200 to 300 people who come to the center every day take the system for granted [nyt]

The most commonly lost & least commonly reclaimed item: umbrellas. This reminds me that my thin/flat sharper image umbrella is still missing.

7-up, grape juice, saltines

so far 2004 has been rather stupid. just as I'm getting over the cold (just kidding! the cough will never go away.), I eat some crappy swimming rama at Noodle Studio on the snow day and get food poisoning and spend Wednesday in bed. I went to the office today for a change of scenery (& because a baked potato from Briazz seemed like a good idea), but came home early due to a complete lack of energy.

I think I'll try to eat some Amy's No Chicken Noodle soup and see if Thursday television is still must see.
