The write stuff

Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable. ~Francis Bacon(courtesy of quotegarden.com)

I wonder if that wonderful quote holds true for blogging as well.

Friday Five - 07/16/04
1. What color ink pen do you like best?
Of traditional pen colors, for traditional applications, I prefer black to blue. (And make them micro rollerballs, please.) For personal writing such as the journal I keep for DD, I like a variety of colors but tend toward the cool end of the spectrum. I would be very psyched to find navy or dark purple micro rollerballs.

2. Do you prefer plain paper or paper with lines (notebook paper)?
I prefer narrow (college) ruled notebook paper or pages. Or graph paper, actually. If I could get graph paper for the same price as looseleaf notebook paper, I'd choose the graph paper.

3. What's better: books from the library, or reading online?
Books from the library. Or better yet, books I own. Paperbacks are wonderfully portable, and I like to read while traveling, or in bed, or wherever.

4. Which would you rather get, e-mail or snail mail?
That really depends. I can keep up with correspondence much better with email (thus says the electron junkie!). But snailmail is much better for keepsake value.

5. Do you have a paper weight on your desk?
I have rather a weight of paper on my desk, but no item specifically designed to weigh down paper. If I need to weigh down paper, a stapler or coffee mug will do.
