Pardon me for a moment....

Last night I spent some time wistfully going through catalogs.
Oh, I know I can't afford to actually order anything from them, but still I imagined it anyway.
The first catalog was Goldspot, which sells fountain pens. I love fountain pens. I love them so much that soon my "goldspot" had turned into a "wet spot". (I like to call Goldspot my favorite "g-spot". Well, ok, second favorite.)
The pen you see pictured here is a Conway Stewart Churchill Burgundy Blush Extra Fine Point Fountain Pen. Its usual price is $650.00, but Goldspot currently has it for $519.00.
Then there was Figi's. I think I ordered from them ONCE, years ago, and they've insisted on sending me a catalog at least twice a year ever since. Gotta love their optimism. I also get similar catalogs from Swiss Colony. They love tempting me with pictures of delicious things I can not afford.
So before I fell asleep, I spent awhile curled up in bed, ogling pictures of Waterman pens and Pelikan pens and Ferrari pens (and much more), along with pictures of pepper jack cheese and hot pepper swiss cheese and sharp cheddar cheese and spicy jerky sticks and BBQ ribs and chocolate-covered everything and dobosh tortes and--
Oops.
Another wet spot....

Sorry about that.

UPDATE: look what's hitting me tonight!

You know, you really need to be a little more careful with the glass of water.

Oh wait...you meant...nevermind.

Janna said...

Travis: Yes... um.... sorry about that. Here, have some cake.

Mr. Fabulous said...

So what is the difference between those pens and my gel pens?

Oh yeah...nothing :)

Square1 said...

Shhh... Janna! You're giving away our biggest secret... that catalogues are nothing more than porn for women.

Oops... was that out loud?

Enjoy the snow and send some my way would ya?

Marilyn said...

We get lots of catalogs we never order from. It's a long story about how this happens... maybe I should blog about it. Anyway, catalogs are nice. Snow is bad, but I like Canadians.

Mr. Fab: **Gasp** Bite your tongue! There's plenty of difference! There's culture and sophistication and class and... and... oh yeah, and the price difference of a couple hundred dollars. Beat that!

Square1: I see what you mean!

Matt-man: I'm surprised you didn't get any last night, with that big storm that went across Michigan and Ohio.

Marilyn: I like Canadians too!

Bah.
Humbug.
Is it spring yet?

Janna said...

Morgen: Enjoy winter, my friend. It'll be here for quite a few months. In the meantime, have some cake. I'm sure Travis will share with you.... maybe.

Travis said...

Get your own CAKE!!!

I mean...uhm...of course I'll share with friends.

**blush**

Sorry. It's CAKE and I lost my head for a moment. But I'm all better now.

Janna said...

Travis: LOL! You know, the other day I had some chocolate CAKE and I thought of you....
I didn't share any of it either. :)
