"Maria Sergunina - 31. Overwater & Underwater / На воде и под водой - Part of my project "100 Drawings in 100 Days". Liners, black marker, 10*14 cm (4*5.6 in). / Проект "100 рисунков за 100 дней". Линеры, черный маркер, 10*14 см."

In this sample, the artwork is a great graphic representation that can remind us how "вода" is expressed in prepositional case and instrumental case.

I had recently found the blog called LifeHacker, where you can find tips about modern life like getting more out of your iPod with "ShrinkMyTunes (that was a link to the original article). The software is available for $39.99. Considering I've only filled about 1 gig on my out-dated iPod, I don't need to take advantage of that tip.

I thought of that blog when I was surfing Hasbro's Monopoly site this evening (trying to get an electronic version to work on the new Windows Vista on the main computer). I found some Monopoly Game Tools that are absolutely necessary for the modern human being.

When I was about nine I cleaned up the bedroom and somehow managed to lose almost all of my Monopoly money. It was a tragedy of monumental proportions.
