A bubble-blowing day wish

I wish every day was a bubble-blowing day. It is just so relaxing to dip and blow with a bubble wand.

Best Office Gadget Ever Award

And the winner is....

This particular kind of staple remover is my office best friend.

I received one of these years ago from a business fair as a promo item and have loved it ever since. I even took it to Cambodia with me because those other "claw" removers just don't do the job right.

Recently I've been doing some office work that requires removing lots of staples and started using the claw kind until a fellow office mate provided me a Swingline remover.

Unfortunately it just didn't do the job right either.

So when I happened to be volunteering at a Baby Boomer Expo the other weekend scanning the different books, my eyes glommed onto the prize. It was one of the fantastic "freebie" promo staple removers.

I think the vendor thought I was a little nutso for being so excited over such a small office gadget. He just doesn't realize how magnificent those little tools are when one is dealing with staples.

For me, the promotional staple remover is

the Best Office Gadget Ever!

Join me as I lead this tour through some of the spots I love the most. We'll see the sights and shop the markets in Bangkok; hit an elephant trek in Chiang Mai; take a river cruise in Luang Prabang plus explore its historical streets, hitting the tribal night market (I'll finally get to buy more handmade paper lanterns that I left on the bus in Jan '05); visit the amazing Angkor Wat plus hangout with the family at their house for lunch in the village; and finally ending the tour by taking in the vibrant life of the capital in Phnom Penh.

It's priced at a mere $2750 (land only), and that includes your 3-star hotels througout, local tour guides throughout, bus/flight transfers, land transportation and most of your meals. What more could you ask for? (Well, I suppose FREE.)
