Turned on radio mid-absolutely-wonderful-interview with an author— and eventually was pleasantly thrilled that it was George Saunders. Oh how I love him.

Ink refills for my favorite pens cost more than buying the new pens whole. Why?? Alas. I did pay the dollar more for the refills. I don’t want the guilt of seeing a Uniball Signo stuck in a turtle’s nose...

Chromebook / non-Mac people! I need your help!

Any recommendations for a good/SIMPLE Chromebook? Say, for a not-so-tech-savvy older gentleman who may or may not be my father, and who checks email, watches Netflix and Youtube, does Facebook stuff. That's all.

His requirement: Backlit keyboard.

My requirement: As the person responsible for family tech support, I'd prefer it not make me want to smash it to bits whenever I have to do things to it.
