August Log, Blog and Salad Challenge - Day 20

Friday, August 20, 2010

I haven't logged, blogged or ate a salad today, yikes. Hit and miss yesterday. Better get a move on!

Yesterday I was at WalMart, shopping for groceries...when it happened. Irresistibly I am drawn to the back to school specials. What is the attraction of paper and notebooks and pens and pencils? It's the school marm in me. It represents a new year, a fresh beginning, an opportunity for greatness. Like a new year, a fresh sheet of paper can be changed into anything I want to create.
Do you remember that line Tom Hanks sends online to Meg Ryan in YOU'VE GOT MAIL, noting that Fall makes him want to send someone a nice bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils? I know exactly what he meant.

    I love all that stuff and stationery, lol. Guess we are nerds at heart, haha. I also love books even though I can never find time to read them I am always wanting to buy them.

    I never liked having to go back to school as a kid, but I always loved getting new school supplies, and I had the same feelings about them.
