Neville and the Short Pencil Saga


I've been completely off The Drug for two weeks.  Neville seems to be doing mostly ok with this, not many wild twinges or zaps.  My outer fingers are a little puffier and the shiny-skin look is back, but Neville is just bipping along in a mild fashion.  And I'm still a little fog-brained but that's getting better, too.  At least I remember recent conversations now, something I had trouble with a month ago. 

It's been awhile since I've mentioned YouTube.  The danger with YouTube is in the search results.  I may not find what I was looking for but the Related Videos offer so many other possibilities.  An example:  while looking for a video about library bookdrops, something interesting presented itself in Related Videos (not related to bookdrops at all, by the way.)   Pencil Spinning Tutorial - talk about distraction.  This is what I did during part of my 25th-Wedding-Anniversary.  Wouldn't it be cool to be able to do this?  I could compete on America's Got Talent.  Or not, since I haven't yet made it past the ability to do the thumb-spin.  But I'm not giving up.  My husband despairs.

Pencils.  You would not believe how much YouTube time is devoted to pencils.

Who among us has used a short yellow pencil in the library?  Ever wonder how they got there?  Short Pencil Saga takes you on a journey from the forest to the library.

Not the most riveting blog entry, but there it is.  Next time?  Mango Buttercream Icing.  Stay tuned.
