lines and lines and lines

I am a prolific list writer. In fact, right now I am sat in bed, with coffee, surrounded by lists. I like writing lists, I like organising things and I like crossing things off.

My current lists reside on various bits of scrap paper, but 'proper' lists, not just to-do lists are kept in my fabulous hand printed moleskine cahier from the fabulous Champignons on etsy.

Last night I was ignoring my to-do list, as if frequently the case - I am also a prolific procrastinator and time waster - I guess that's why the lists are so important....I find myself day dreaming or going off on a complete tangent and completely forget what I was doing....
So last night, I found the most wonderful dinnerware from Fishs Eddy. Now I can keep my coffee in line whilst sitting in bed writing my lists, or organise my cheese into a list of which should be eaten first! (Brie is obviously top of that list by the way) . It is a little sad that they don't come as dinner plates, but peas would be flying off all over the place and to put a lip on these would be sacrilege , and that's just not good, is it?

Anyway, this discovery took me on a little Google adventure, albeit quite a disappointing one. How fabulous would it be to have stationary know, a knife that looks like a ruler, things shaped like pens and pencils.....these are all I found.
Ummm....yes.....pen lids with plastic forks on the end. How completely useless.


"These eating tools work in conjunction with your ball point pens, this makes it easier to eat with and handle the food properly without getting it all down your clothes! "

Or just use a real fork.

I chew pen lids. I would stab my mouth. Not fun. I often forget to take a pen with me, or loose them, so this wouldn't really be very handy for impromptu eating either. Ridiculous.

Now, real cutlery shaped like stationary is perfectly acceptable and any cutlery designers reading this should take note (ha!) and make some for me please. I don't want to be resigned to cutting my cheese with a plastic fork taped to a Biro. Thank you.

Ah, bless you. I have just posted a blog entry on my fabulous laziness-look at me here, busy googling myself instead of working.. the moleskines did at least arrive (eventually!).

I live for list writing! It makes you feel productive yet you're not actually doing work.

Have you seen this website? I haven't joined, but I do like the thought of it a lot!

That seems a little bit too organised...and creepy, the map thing especially! Although mine would blatantly just be a little dot hovering over my flat, and then a little to the left when I go get milk! I like a good old pen and paper!

And both of you should know that both list writing and googling yourself are legitimate forms of work. Honest.
