On Saturday, I panicked a bit when I realized that my beloved M&Co. watch, which I've worn every day for the past eleven years, had slipped off my wrist and was gone forever. Michael's mention of the Swiss Railway Watch reminded me that I still had one, somewhere. Today I unearthed it. Yay. Needs a new battery and a new band.
The card in the background is the work of Martin Perrin (set in Tobias Frere-Jones's Interstate). I got it in the mail a few years ago; I stuck it up on one of my magnet boards to remind myself (a) that a little panic can be a good thing sometimes, and (b) to keep my head down.
