Me: As cool as you and me put together.

Sanford Sharpie Stainless Steel Fine Point

Today when Rob picked me up he started talking about his new cool Sharpie--a Stainless Steel Sharpie that you can buy refills for and . . . let's face it, if you love Sharpies you are already excited and if not you couldn't care less about what I am talking about.

So when we get home he shows me his new Stainless Steel Sharpie and, as I sit there inhaling that familiar Sharpie scent, he says, "Isn't it cool?"  To which I said, "As cool as you and me put together."  (Yes, I know it is "I" but I am tired and am not a grammar "nazi.")

But you want to know what's really really cool about this?

Rob bought 2 and gave me a Stainless Steel Sharpie of my very own!

You know you're jealous!  Admit it!


  1. Yay! Joe is a grammar Nazi. But Yay for your new stainless steel sharpies! I'm still waiting for the pencil

  2. Well, the only good thing that can come out of being around a grammar Nazi is that they occasionally correct you and you learn something new. Otherwise, we . . . I mean THEY can be quite annoying.

    (And the movie Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood isn't nearly as good as the book. Fried Green Tomatoes is both a good movie and a good book. Steel Magnolias--I agree with Heather that the other women were more interesting than Julia Roberts, Sally Fields and the others that were there. For me it was Dukakis and Maclaine with Parton coming in not too far behind as the most interesting characters.)

    Oh boy! My coffee is ready. Yummmm . . .

  3. I was only using Julia Roberts as a reference as to what the movies was.
    See, what happened was we were lying in bed and just joking around I said, "I'm dead...Ughhh." Closed my eyes and laid still. Brianna started screaming "WAKE UP MOMMY!" To which I "woke" up. Then I said that it is the saddest thing in the world for a young child to try and wake a parent if they really are dead. And this made me say, "Like in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes." The rest of the conversation is what I posted on FB. I couldn't remember anyone else in the movie but Julia Roberts.

  4. I must admit I've heard the name but haven't ever seen nor smelled a sharpie (shame on me?)... I got an expensive (looking) stainless steel mechanic pencil once but didn't like it... too heavy for me to feel comfortable, unfortunately.

    As for the grammar nazis: Our English textbook in highschool was called "You and Me".

  5. One of the many reasons I want to find a job is so I can buy all the Sharpies. Once upon a time you had a choice of red, black, or dark blue but now there are rainbows of Sharpies, and different points and even Sharpie pencils. It's become quite "the thing."

    They smell like any permanent marker does, I suppose. I just love the smell of permanent markers. Always have.

    You and Me?
    Ouch . . .

  6. Joe is also has an affection for Sharpies. He would buy the big multi-packs and I would take turns stealing different colors and giving them back. It was our thing. Our first steps at flirting (even if it was childish). And from that point on, Sharpies hold a special place in our heart. I think I just figured out what to get Joe for his birthday...Just haveta figure out how to get to the store without him knowing...

  7. You know you can always ask me and/or Rob to buy something and you can reimburse us. In this case, you could say "buy this but don't spend more than such and such" and we could do that for you.

    After all, that's how Joe and Rei bought Marc's bday gift since I was ordering something anyway and said, "If we all order we could save on shipping and . . ."

    Tada! Family is here to help. Yaaaaay!
