The last couple of weeks have been pretty terrible at work and I’ve been in a bit of a funk trying to deal with work, planning a wedding, planning to move in March and just general life stuff.
Today our exec sec came in and handed me a box of pens I had asked her to order and I’m just ecstatic! I was down to one blue pen (I hate blue) and one freebie pen from one of the companies that works with us so my box of pens has become a bright spot for me.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets excited over pens, what little things cheer you up when you’re down?

Laffy Taffy cheers me up

The pen is mightier than the sword! Hahaha, never EVER underestimate the power of a good ink pen 🙂 I work in a lab & some ink pens smudge on the labels. I have ONE pen that I like that doesn’t smudge, and someone used it and walked off with it. I literally hunted her down and asked for my pen back. She thought I was a little nuts because, hey, it’s just a pen… RIiiiiiiiiggggght. I hide that pen when I’m not using it.
As for what else cheers me up, well, my Fiance, my dogs, and running. Oh, and a good yoga class… namaste 🙂

I love pens! I used to work in a stationery store and being in that close proximity to so many unusual and awesome pens every day was intoxicating (and not just because of the marker fumes).
I really like receiving Post-Its. I don’t know why.
Also Darling Husband just randomly made this for me the other day when he was bored at work and the cuteness kills me.

I once had a box of 6 brand new Pilot G-2 pens which I put in my pen holder at work. The next day I came in, and all 6 were gone. So I sent an email to my office asking if anyone knew what happened to my pens. I even included a photo.
The next thing I know, our Graphics Department went APE SHIT making fake “Wanted” posters with pictures of my pens and posting them around the office. They also created a “Where’s Waldo” game with pens..etc…etc.
I wanted to be embarrassed, but I was still pissed about my pens!! Oh, the perils of working at a Marketing Agency.
Small things I love: Pilot G-7 Pens, a full gas tank, fuzzy socks, the day the cleaning lady comes!!

@CanAmBride: Yeah, I use the Pilot V5s and I bought my two previous boxes myself because I didn’t want to request an $18 box of pens through supply but after two boxes disappeared completely I finally pulled the manager card and ordered some. That is so awesome that your company made wanted signs! Haha!
@linguo42: Ah! Pengy is so cute! Fiance used to make me little origami flowers when we worked together, I loved getting them.
