Default School Supplies -- Serious and Kitchy

A couple of people on another thread mentioned they have office/school supplies fetishes. I have friends who do, but *I* am above all that. *cough*

Anyway, this was my favorite school related item ever --



I was so excited when I heard that my new position did not require me to post assignments and grades online because I could revert to using an actual gradebook. I don't really love them, but I love buying them. However it turns out there's a FORM, that we use to turn grades in on a weekly basis. Drat.

No point in buying a lesson planner because I don't teach like that. *Foiled*

I did get to buy one of these though, which was fun. Mine is a little smaller, and much cuter.



So what is your relationship to office and school supplies? Tell us about some of your favorites. Reveal your unsavory preferences. Tell all.

I just bought a case of notebooks at wal-mart because they were 17 cents each. I still have notebooks from last year.

my last lunch bucket was a red patent leather one, with a woman in a mini skirt and white boots. I would give ANYTHING (almost) to have that again

See... You need the lunch box to put all of the sharpies in...

I have a fascination with the InPlace folder system you can get at Office Max. There are these heavyduty plastic folders in the four different colors of the system bundle they sellf, so I have different colors for each class I am currently taking.

I will go to any office supply store and spend about an hour in the pen & pencils section. I love a quality writing instrument, and carry around 2-3 pens all the time.

My prized office supply item is my baby blue Swingline 747 stapler. I totally understand the weird dude in the movie "Office Space" when he gets protective of his stapler. I have had mine for over 20 years.

And who could resist the Tickles Tapeworm pencil case by Parasite Pals? I gave this as a gift years ago, and regret not getting one for myself:



I can't recall now, but I think this is on the back. Who knew you could write a bio for a tapeworm that reads like a page from Tiger Beat:

Ohhhhhhhhh i love office/school supplies!!!!

My fav store in the whole world is office max. I could shop in there for days. I love pens and notebooks. My fav pens are pentel. The tall ones are so cool. They flow so smoothly.

Another thing i love is calendars and notebooks. I have a really cool notebook i keep my mileage in and it's so pretty and retro huge pink flowers and it's covered in plastic inside and out. I have a bunch of calendars as well, small to large.

I honestly think i would rather shop at Office Max than i would a shoe store. That's HUGE coming from me.

Oh and of course, sharpies. I have tons of them. Love. Love.

I associate sharpies with being drawn on and with students who swipe them in order to tag things. I have more often used them for practical purposes, but these associations are stronger. So I can't say that I love them.

Now, colored pencils, those I love.

Talking

I haz serious fountain pen and good paper habit.

Sadly the old school desk and chair had to go...many moons ago and I haven't replaced them.

The College (est. 2003. Our founder Mr.Daktari OBE himself is rather the fountain pen enthusiast and collector) expects all students to use a fountain pen. Girls and boys must be very conscious of their hand-writing during spelling tests and assignments, sloppy work will not be tolerated. A regulation school fountain pen (either a Lamy Nexx or Pelikano dependent upon a number of variables.) will be issued and is expected to be kept in good writing condition. All students must provide their own notebooks. *note to parents: Aurora or Rhodia exercise books please.

Uniform must be worn at all times. Skirt lengths will be checked without warning. Boys caps must be folded carefully and placed in (your own) blazer pocket. Ties must be fastened correctly at all times.

The College will not tolerate bad behaviour from our young ladies and gentlemen and has a strict policy of corporal punishment. In line with current guidelines the student/punishee will be provided with a clean leather strop to bite on during administration. Any noise from the student will result in loss of play-time and sweets/candy privileges. Lesser infractions, ie. sloppy handwriting, will be dealt with immediately by the form tutor with a swift ruler either across the the knuckles or backs of the legs.

NB. Post admonishment Butt Butt'r can be provided and applied by Matron...there will be a small charge for this service.


You did say serious or kinky didn't you?

Any other fountain pen enthusiasts? What nibs do you prefer? Do you have a favourite fp? Are there any fps you aspire to?

What about ink? Favourite colours for different occasions or one colour across the board? Favourite ink brand? I'm trying to find the 'perfect' dark green and imperial purple for my taste. Currently the Lamy turquoise is a favoured colour but I don't like the slight pooling that causes darker areas in the script.

Currently I really enjoy using a (ebay bargain: brand new and less than half price) Scheaffer Urban, ebony lacquer/chrome trim with a M, thankfully it doesn't write too thick for me...I usually prefer a F nib dependent upon brand and pen. There's also a vintage Paper Mate, slim line fp with gold accoutrement, tortoiseshell pattern metal barrel and lid, that is an absolute joy to use and is filled with good old Quink blue/black.

The current favourite, every day, throwing in my rucksack pen, is a Lamy Nexx (pink lid) with F black nib.

I think this falls within the realm of kitsch and/or whimsy...



Saw a similar one years ago with an image that flipped between Jesus and the words "Jesus Rules".

I know Venus007 is a fountain pen lover and can talk nibs and stuff. Hopefully she'll post.
