Just to let everyone know--it is 100 days until my birthday.
Here are some random gadgets from the Thailand trip:
This is the "master control" in each room. It turned on/off all the lights, air conditioning, television, alarm clock, etc. Kind of nifty but very confusing at first.
When we first entered the room, we were confused because we couldn't get the lights to turn on. It turns out that there was a magnetic strip that you had to put your key on (facing the correct way) in order for any of the lights to work. This also meant that every time you left the room everything on the control box got turned off, including the air conditioning. Man, were we suffering when we came back every day to a hot room! (actually we all figured out that we should just leave a key behind...)
This was the coveted hair dryer that was in a satin box. It was also chained to the drawer so you had to sit at the desk in front of the mirror in order to reach your hair. It's like they thought we would want to steal it or something!
