A Confession...

I LOVE fresh, new pencils!


And today I walked past the printer just to see this little vase filled with pencils. Sad but true, it totally made my day! I'm not sure how or why, but something about Office Max is therapeutic for my soul. I'm pretty sure I could spend hours looking at pens and pondering the beauty that fresh binders have to offer...ok I'm lying. I'm very sure I could spend hours because I HAVE spent hours doing just that! In fact this morning I needed a pen, and it just so happened I was in the copy room...danger danger! So I meandered over to the magic cabinet of wonder that contains all pens, pencils, highlighters, markers and so much more. I'm ashamed to say I spent 5 minutes evaluating them all! I tested some, took 5 and went on my way (Bo, sorry I was 5 minutes late to our meeting!).

Call me a geek, call me crazy, call me silly (but beware I will get you back with well-crafted sass)...but I just love office supplies!

Ummm...I love office supplies too. Shall we schedule a date to Office Max sometime soon when you've got a few hours to spare?

PENS and Markers make life Happy!

I don't think you're silly.
You're not at all a geek.
Life is just better when the copy room is stocked with such glorious things!

how about the 24 pack of Colored Sharpies from Costco... total i have probably pondered buying them about 100 times!

Um, way to live out the greatest movie of all time. Also, I have, in the past, spent 45 min. looking for a good quill and ink online. You are not alone.:)

Katie,
I agree... there is nothing quite as great as a pen or pencil that writes like magic. I relate. Maybe it's because we're related... :) -Sarah
