Baby It's Cold Outside!

Well, it's not quite cold yet here in Seattle, but the return of the rain is a reminder that winter is on its way. This year, I plan to be prepared. I've wanted these every winter, and every winter I neglect to buy them.

Check out the cheapest selection here, but you can also google "usb powered gloves" to find more all over the web. I'm holding out for some not made from wool...

Trust Me

You need this. It is the best.pen.ever.

I bought it after perusing the pens on and reading reviews. [This is what I do instead of writing my dissertation.] These Jimnie Gel Rollerball pens have 15 reviews, all overwhelmingly positive. In fact, the only negative points were that it seems to run out of ink faster than other pens and that people will steal it from you.

This is Who I Want to Be When I Grown Up

I have found the coolest store, ever. My work here is done--I have no need to blog ever again. I'm seriously thinking about running away from my life here in Seattle to see if Kate's Paperie in NYC will take me in.

They have something called an eraser ring, in bling yellow, for goodness sake! How awesome is that?

Everyone's Talking About...

There was quite the buzz about Sharpie's new "pencil"--an erasable pen whose ink becomes permanent after a few days. The consensus seems clear--this is a cool concept, and everything works great--the erasing, the permanenting--except that it writes like crap. Bummer.
And yet I still kind of want one....
