a life in post-its

When I was a little boy, I loved playing office.I had a whole set-up.Pens, assorted papers, envelopes, an old check writing machine, a keyboard from a Tandy computer, credit card triplicates, carbon paper, a binder full of medical record stickers – I was stocked.Most of those things are anachronisms now.In the mid-90s, I went from having a summer job as a filer to the next summer unfiling all the previous summer’s files and scanning them into a huge computer.

sb true w. hollywood story - père noël coward

I don’t like to play favorites, but I love this scent.  I’ve always adored the smell of pine and the intense bite you get from it. As a kid, I loved the smell of the living room when it had a real tree in it.  Even when you touched the trunk and got sap stuck to your fingers, it was a mess, but at least it smelled wonderful.
