Amish Paradise

I have a new comptuer mouse, which claims to do many things, which I've to see how they're different to the things my old (albeit broken) computer mouse used to do. Highly amused though at the intructions, which come in a neat CD-box sized envelope, that is until you open it. Then the thing unfolds like a Tube map that's almost twice the size of your desk space.

And last night that was what I was kept up by. So I decided to rewrite things, and then fell asleep at my computer, like on TV And my internet's been down all yesterday. It was awful. Although I ended up getting a lot of work done...
