Finding gifts on the web for friends


I did some online shopping for my friend Mona and, if you can believe it, ended up finding both of her birthday gifts on the same Web site! In her e-mails to me, Mona often complains of her office desk clutter. She sits in a sweltering hot, non-air-conditioned office in Southern California for nine hours a day … and types for hours on end. By the end of the day she’s hot and cranky and her wrists ache.

So I decided to get her a MouseBungee and a CompuSooth Cooling Wrist Rest. How perfect! Both products, marketed as “comfort technology,” can be ordered at the Soothsoft Web site, The MouseBungee is going to apparently free her wrist and her desk from tangled cords as it offers her “effective and affordable ergonomic relief from mouse cord drag, snags, and tangles.”

Meanwhile, the CompuSooth Cooling Wrist Rest is going to cool her wrists and comfort her Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and repetitive motion stress with fluid-cool cushion action that will support and contour her pressure points! All right!Mona will be getting her treats in a few days. She said she loved the virtual flowers and laughed herself silly while looking at the 1974 Weight Watchers Web site. Maybe I’m not such a bad friend, after all, eh? And hopefully my birthday-forgetting experience taught you a thing or two as well. See you next week.
