The plate with the fork (and spoon?) has been sitting on top of the book return bin since before the winter holiday. I wonder when someone will take it away? I can see it from my office so will report back.
We saw Les Miserables yesterday (local repertory company production in Livermore's wonderful 500-seat theater). Three hours 20 minutes (including 15-minute intermission).

So I'm setting a new keyboard and thought I'd ask an odd question. Do you prefer to put the feet out on your keyboard or leave it flat on the desk.
