[wood, graphite, paper, creativity]

Spare_Pencil_BrwnAlthough I have written what some would
say are a fair few blogs, the majority of what
I write [or in most cases, what I intend to
write] gets written down in my notepads.

I have different notepads for different things, I have
one for general thoughts and feelings that I have in
my day to day as well things that I would otherwise
forget, I have one that will one day become a travel
journal [if I could just start it off], I have one for
writing down ‘Little Green Book‘ lyrics in and I have
one  for writing down my photographic  and video
ideas down into.

The one thing that all these notepads have in
common with one another, is that I only ever
use pencil to jot down ideas. I’m not sure why,
I’ve just always preferred them.

As always I am really into researching things and thats
why at the moment I am reading a book on Greek and
Roman mythology. But if you wanted to research pencils,
here are some sites to look at :]

‘The History Of Pencils’

‘An Entry On Pencils On Wikipedia’

Just a small note, one should always use a HB
pencil for when they are drawing [which I can’t
do anyway] or jotting down their thoughts, it
feels nicer. Almost as nice as using a biro to write
on a banana skin. Go on, try it :]

[xkcd comic] [for the geek in me] =]

Upon reading this I went on Wikipedia.org
and researched anything on this I didn’t
already know about, took ages but I feel
better for it.

Because that is what I use the internet for
these days [besides blogging and MSN of
course] self research. Say for instance I’m
watching a DVD or a television show and
a character says something I don’t know
or understand the reference for, I get the
laptop and look it up.

Thus the great power of the internet,
oh and I am aware that going from an
informative and amusing comic to
a validation of the internet for self
research is quite a segway, but if
you read this blog, it’s what you should
expect.

[Just wait till I write the blog I’ve been
planning that completely U-Turn’s on
what I just said]
