Revelations

I did accomplish one thing this weekend aside from noisy fiddle repair: I cleaned up my primary desk, and also did a buncha sorting through the various drawers and cups and storage bins where writing supplies and other junk tend to accumulate. Threw out a lot of things, cleaned up others. In the process, I discovered a few things.

For one, I may have the largest private collection of those correction tape dispenser thingies in existence:


Seriously, there are about a dozen! I guess I can stop buying 'em for awhile, now I know where they all are...

Also, after clean up, I'm even more perplexed by my complete and utter inability to ever find a Sharpie on those occasions when I need one. I mean...they were everywhere! More than half a dozen of 'em, spread throughout the house!



They are corralled now. Hopefully they'll stay that way.

Don't make me set up a webcam to keep an eye on you while I'm out and about, Sharpies. I don't want to hurt you, but I will.

You never know when you might need a pocket sized pencil!

Just chanced upon your blog. Funny that you posted about correction tape, I just ordered a couple of bottles of Liquid Paper and thought how odd that might sound to other people.

My wife, an avid scrapbooker, has tons of tape rollers, but you definitely have her beat on Sharpies!!!

I totally cracked up about the Sharpies! I do the same thing. I swear they can shift into an alternate universe just when I need one!

Quite possibly there is an alternate universe somewhere entirely populated by Sharpies, scissors, and mismatched socks.
