New Wayfarer

My Ray Ban New Wayfarer got here last saturday. The New Wayfarer is a redesigned Wayfarer. A problem with the original Wayfarer design was that it only looked good on very few people. The redesign makes for a pair of sunglasses suitable for a lot more faces. Cool pair of shades!

184 days

That's 184 days of uptime. Half a year, and counting... Not bad. Not bad at all!

Reuben Tishkoff's brother

We went to an optician today to pick up the new specs for my wife. I had a look around and soon spotted a IC! Berlin frame I fancied. The female assistent handed me another frame she thought would look good on me. The shop owner and she both went "Wow! Looks great on you!" Me, I wasn't so sure. I felt I looked like Reuben Tishkoff's spitting image with that frame. All that was missing to make it complete was a bow tie, some gold bling-bling and a big Cuban cigar. Who's Reuben Tishkoff you ask? See picture... I politely said I would give it a thought. I did however buy something else. A Ray Ban New Wayfarer in Havana with prescription lenses.

I found out about it last year, but this summer I bought a set: Speedminton. The Speedminton racket is a bit like a racquetball racket. Speedminton is played with a Speeder: a shuttlecock that's smaller and faster than a badminton shuttlecock. Three different Speeders exist: Fun Speeder, Match Speeder, Night Speeder

The Fun Speeder is a slow(ish) Speeder. The Match Speeder is faster. The Night Speeder is a Match Speeder that can be illuminated with a Speedlight (=small glow stick). 

Playing Speedminton is great fun and it's a nice workout too! Playing Speedminton in the dark at 10.00 pm with the illuminated Night Speeder is awesome.

La Marque Jaune

While on holiday in France I grabbed the chance to get a French copy of my favourite comic strip: La Marque Jaune. I now have it in Dutch (twice), German, English and French.
