From Leslie in August (to George) - Serendipity (pencils)


Ruling writers, AKA folded pens, are the complete opposite of pencils. Wish I had bought more of those stamps. I wonder if they are gone.

It was pure serendipity (or being tracked by my computer) that a video from 9 years ago popped up on the same day I wrote about the pencil heiress. I feel like this video has already been posted on my blog but I am unable to find it. Either way - it will tickle your funny bone, if you have one. It is also true that a hand sharpened pencil has qualities not found in pencils sharpened by handheld or electric sharpeners. I will delve into that tomorrow. 

Warning: David does use the f-word once. It is a slow paced video (9+ minutes) so if you only have 3 to 5 minutes of *silly time* allotted - you might want to save it for a time when you can indulge in a full 9-10 minutes of silliness.

His website is still up, but I do not have time to look at it and figure out if he is still in business. He also wrote a book which must be out of print. New copies are going for $50 - used copies are $8.
