Tidying some pencils

Some pencils were scattered around on my desk. I picked them up one by one. I placed the pencils in the drawer which I use to store pencils.

    This blog entry is like a very long Haiku. With too many syllables.

    People have a habit of stating the obvious.
    And then going and giving romanticism with condescending glares.

    May they burn in the meat freezer.

    I think he died in 2006. The same time the internets primary use did as well. This is a lot worse than the guy who posts pics of him smelling his collection of athletic shoes! What has this society come to?

    Yellow pencils are my favorite. I like to write words and numbers with them, then erase the words and numbers if I feel like it. Sometimes I chew on the eraser.

  12. As a playwright, I too have some experience using pencils. However, I keep them in a small wire mesh cup on my desk, thereby eliminating the need to open a drawer to put each one away, and also thereby saving a measurable amount of time not having to close the drawer after putting away the aforementioned pencil as well. Perhaps some of your readers might benefit from this helpful, time saving device. As an aside, I have also discovered that an unused coffee mug can be employed in such a fashion, although the chance for amusing mix-ups (“drinking” pencils, or placing a pencil in another similar cup that still contains a certain amount of coffee) poses an ongoing hazard. I advise caution if this devil-may-care use of inappropriate pencil receptacles is followed.

    Notice how you got more and more comments as the blog got popular. If you made a line graph of comments, it would be a steep curve.

    While I was reading this I got the sudden urge to post a comment. Then I looked out the window and saw a bird. It was quite a nice looking bird. I then proceeded to catch the bird and eat it. A few moments later, I sprouted some wings and flew away. When I arrived back home, I finished writing this comment.

  45. Not Stroke the Jar says:

    This writing of the words makes me happy feeling, All the happy is with me because of all the words that I made appear in my head from your blog. I like the story about the pencils because I like pencils. Lots. Even more than Dan does. But we don’t talk about him ever since Heather’s mistake. Pencils are of interest to me I would have a website showing my likings for Pencils but I do not have the interweb or any clue of what to do with it, I am doing this entirely in my sleep and won’t remember a thing in the morning day when I awake. Also like all leaves and some kinds of bees. BUT NOT HEATHER FOR HAVING OUTER MARITAL SEX AND GETTING PREGNANT AND ALMOST GIVING BIRTH TO THE ANTI CHRIST. THANK GOD WE STOPPED IT.
    I also like stairs.
