Do you know how much immense pleasure can be derived from writing with a pencil? It is lightweight and erases your mistakes with a fair amount of ease. The only reason I still enjoy typing anymore is because of the clickclack noise but pens can suck it. You know who uses pencils? People with important things to do. People who use math on a daily basis. People who need to make edits on papers for other people. Piano teachers. You can make your writing as precise as you want to. Just sharpen the point. Or dull it out into a soft nub. Whatever you want to do. You can chew on it and sometimes this is also satisfactory. A whole package of 100 pencils only costs five cents.

My 2 Favorite Made-for-TV Movies:

Who is Julia?
Two young womens lives are changed forever in one moment. A strikingly beautiful and wealthy woman is hit by a truck and is all smashed up and nearly killed. At nearly the same time, a very plain looking lower middle class woman simply faints and suffers brain death. The beautiful womans brain is fine, so, doctors merely transplant her brain into plain Jane. Problems ensue when plain Janes husband continues to believe she is still his wife. She has no memory of him, and goes to live with the beautiful womans husband. She doesn't mix well with her new socialite friends and family. Mirrors are emotional battlefields as well. ~ courtesy of IMDB

Paper Dolls


It is a real shame that I can find neither video clips from Who is Julia? or a plot summary for Paper Dolls (the TV movie with Darryl Hannah and Alexandra Paul- not to be confused with the TV series).

I am updating my bday wish list to include Pentec medium point pens (both black and blue ink) and VHS copies of these two fine productions.

I missed another party last night because of the TV. The first time it happened I skipped my sorority formal because the premiere of Walking with Dinosaurs was on. Last night I blame Beowulf.
