John Scalzi's weekend assignment

Weekend Assignment #36: I have a mug on my desk with $70.65 in change in it. What should I do with the money? The only unacceptable answer is "give it to me." Honestly. You can do better.

I'd put $10 with it, or wait till a sale, and buy THIS laser cordless mouse.

I haven't been enthralled with my current keyboard and mouse; they came with my Dell, and I paid extra for them.  But the keyboard quit responding entirely a while back.  I must say that once it died, the mouse began responding better.  But it requires batteries at the most inopportune times!  The mouse pictured above has its own charger, so no need for batteries. 

Extra Credit: If you've got a picture of your own loose change storage device, show it.

John, I'd love to; but I left the digital camera at my sister-in-law's house yesterday!  I'm going through withdrawals, believe me.

Oh, I would die too if I left my camera.  I almost died when I dropped it.

I have a cordless laser mouse at work -- and it is not your salvation!   It's so delicate and vulnerable to big clumsy guys like me who tend to bump it and nudge it involuntarily.   I've never had so many visits from the IT guys at Hallmark!  Give me a good old 1996 mouse with a cord any day!

Yes, the battery thing is the downside of my otherwise excellent Logitech cordless mouse. I'm going to asked for lots of AA batteries for Christmas.--Karen

You just taught me something new.  I didn't know laser mouse's existed.  Of course, I'm still in the stone age with my corded mouse.  lol   Ah, what can ya do!   Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!  Love, Anna
