The Four Coins Magic Performance

Last summer, while visiting the Pike Market in downtown Seattle, I ran into a street magician. He let me film him while he performance his trick. Enjoy and don’t spoil the fun, you will be able to see his sleight of hand eventually 😉

And you know what? You are absolutely right!

Days of the week as people

days-of-week
The other day I was reading Jamie’s blog and I was intrigued by the post she had written as an assignment for her writing group. She was asked to describe the days of the week as if they were people 🙂

I liked the idea, so here’s my version of characters I give to each day of the week as if they were employees in a big company.

Monday

A very motivated, creative and enthusiastic person. I know I may be tired from a long fun day from the day before, but I can’t wait to start creating something new. “Yes boss”, you can count on me. Continue reading

Baoding trackball mouse

I routinely clean my trackball mouse but this time something else came to mind also: Baoding balls.

A small excerpt from Wikipedia about Baoding Balls:

Baoding balls, also called Chinese exercise balls, Chinese meditation balls, and Chinese medicine balls, are thought to have been created in Baoding, China, during the Ming dynasty. Baoding balls are a tool for injury recovery or as an exercise tool to improve manual dexterity and strength. They consist of two or more balls which are rotated to orbit in the hand. The iron-ball system is the greatest of Baoding prefecture’s “three treasures.” Long throughout history, renowned within China and other countries, this is Baoding prefecture’s traditional product. This item of Buddhist martial arts was first produced in the Northern Song Dynasty.

So imagine the mouse initially like this:

How the mouse normally looks

Then ready to be cleaned:

How it looks without its ball

But suddenly, the Baoding Balls sitting on the shelf catch my attention:

The perfect match!

So you can imagine what I did next:

Oh btw, Baoding balls produce a nice sound when you juggle them in your hands:

But I doubt you can use this mouse at work since it will produce lots of melody! 😉
