a little bit of vintage

A 1976 Japanese Casio calculator. Guess we all had one of these. Still got yours?

We decided to collect simply the covers we really like( this one is so cute)

Mr. Kay goes Hopper.

my idea for 2010
is to get out more( museums, theater and concerts), it's just to tempting to stay at home with a big box of chocolates

Thanks for nominating me at the homies 2009, that made me happy.
