Is there anything better than a fresh new notepad and a great inky pen? I love the bright paper, the clear blue lines, and the sound the pen makes when it scratches its words across the surface. I had to pull a new notepad out today when I was working at home taking notes on a 1980s interpretive report of my historic site and I must say it made my day (no, that's not pathetic!).
While my last post was about getting with the modern times and the joys of wireless internet, for me nothing will EVER replace the joy of pen and paper. Not eco-friendly of me I know, but hey, I work in the history field and we love pieces of paper and scratchy ink marks and what they have to say.
