Antheneum Tape Dispenser at Anthro, 20
Not too expensive such that if I were wealthy/old enough/needed a home office, I would not hesitate to slam the $20 on Anthro's we're-so-clever-for-repurposing-these-shelves-as-desks counter.
This morning as I walked to the bus stop, there were bunches of flowers at every corner and one in the center of the intersection. Seemed to be the aftermath of a memorial ceremony. The petals were crushed in a line on each side. It was nice to see all the bikers weave and drivers scuttle past the remainders. Kind of them. I hadn't heard anything about an accident or death there. It looked so bizarre. So close, too. When someone dies next to you and you don't know it.
