Mark My Words

Onesome: Mark--ing devices? What do you use to mark things up around the house, school, work, wherever? Does the Sharpie rule? ...or do you believe in the sanctity of the pencil ?

I use Sharpies when I need a marker and pens when I need to sign officially or write a check, but otherwise I prefer a pencil. I like something about the feel of it when I'm writing, the scratching on the paper, and for someone as fussy as I am, the eraser! My favorite pencils are Papermate Clicksters. I picked up a package at the grocery store once and have had a supply ever since. Although it is hard sometimes to find a supply because Office Depot doesn't carry them.

Twosome: "My-- day starts off best when I......" I'll let you fill in the blank at your place!

Have time to slowly wake up. I need time to check email, surf the web, blink at the TV and let the brain slowly "boot up." I feel considerably more harassed throughout the day when I have this wake up time.

Threesome: Words-- of a feather clump together? Nah, but hey: what word pairings do you use routinely? Are you into alliteration? ...pithy comments? 'Down home' sayings? Give it up for Thursday!

I try for pithy comments with a little Texas phraseology thrown in now and again. I'm not sure how successful I am in either category.

How about you? When you're ready, post your answers in your own space, and leave a comment here so we can find you!
