I have an addiction...

to office supplies.
I was sitting here at work staring at the huge stack of invoices sitting in front of me that needed my approval. I picked up my pen and immediately knew that this just wasn't happening. I needed a new pen.
I think it's the change in the air that makes me want to stock up on new pens and pencils.
I hopped in the car and headed over to Staples where there were tons of mothers and kids stocking up for the school year. Oh how I miss a fresh new notebook to write in.
Anyway, back to office supplies. I'm probably a pen snob, but I'm ok with that. When you sit at a desk all day it's the little things that make the time go by.
I've recently fallen in love with Pentel pens (specifically their EnerGel line). I have them in blue and purple and they are great pens.
Since I love them, I also got their silver and gold pens. They're ok, not as good as the EnerGel line. I was also intrigued by a Sharpie pencil. I love a good pencil and had high hopes for these. They disappointed. My only compliment is that they erase very, very well. If you're not a pencil snob, you may like them.
So now I'm back to work, ready to tackle this stack of invoies with my new silver Pentel pen in hand.

Um, I have an obsession with office supplies too. It started when I was like 10 years old and my grandma got me everything I would need to stock my own personal office. It's sad, really lol :)

I love everything about this post. Except for the fact that the Sharpie pencil is a disappointment. :( I was just telling J the other day I can't wait til B is old enough to take school supply shopping. (Except really I can wait. That time is going to pass too quickly as it is.)
