After having spent a not inconsiderable sum on a birthday present for Sencan, I now realise that I could have saved her all the money and just bought a small box that gave her instructions by beeping at her occasionally.

She has just spent ten minutes sitting in the corner of the lounge playing with her new watch.

"It's a computer!" she screamed in delight. "It's even got an 'Enter' button'.

I'm just waiting for her to install Linux onto it. She must be one of the geekiest women in the country.

Sometimes simplier present can have a more enthusiastic effect on people. I occasionally overdo presents by thinking what I'd love to get, instead of specifically seeking what the birthay person would like.
