    Naw, no ritual or anything. Just gotta take the old one off and put the new one on. It can be a little disorenting until you get the new one broken in, however.

    It also give you a chance to wash the bloodsplatters off of the old one

    I have no clue what I am getting for christmas, I'm hoping for the Logitech MX700 Wireless Optical mouse


    but my parents and girl friends are not the most techy people in the world and probably didn't get me anything computer related.
