We have identified one of the couch thiefs as Markus Ruhnke - He is doing keylights when he's not out and about stealing my stuff during the night shift. Please do ask him what happened at Pizzeria Napule last time he was in Kyiv in 2013...........

I see a My Little Pony and a Turkish carpet used as a mouse pad. What do you see? Joan! I got nothing..........

JLM: Last year all the operators named their sessions after My Little Pony characters. That's all...I just wondered if this fascination with these small horses was coincidental?  My Little Pony 2016
