OK, so I’ve got a stationary, notebook, pen fetish. If i stopped buying now, I wouldn’t ever need another. My justification is the perpetual fight against clutter and time… It’s great to read about a fellow sufferer…
John, "…having unhappily put up with an unwieldy multitude of diaries, address
books and notepads for years, Mr. Berendt caught the Gutenberg spirit
three years ago and indulged in a little obsessive-compulsive print
project of his own. He printed up all the letters and numbers he would
need to spell out the months and days of the week (no need for K, X, Q
or Z) and sent them to a company that makes rubber stamps to order."
A lovely story from the NYTimes…
