2007 will be a special year for me, one with some significant milestones happening. For one, I will turn 30 in 2007. Also, I may get into a graduate school, and hence do a relocation, in 2007.
To commemorate this special year, I bought myself an Oris Flight Timer 2 a few days ago. The second time zone feature will be useful when I start the PhD program, I told my wife. We need to keep track of the home time so that we don't make calls back at unearthly hours.
Yes, I'm jumping the gun with all the talks about the "special year", "significant milestones", and "useful second time zone" - but hey, I do need to give some justifications for the purchase.
