The other day Roses did a post about her love for Stationery and lots of people rushed in (stationery traffic - geddit?!) to identify with this unusual fetish (or to grass up somebody they knew with the problem).
There is a drawer of my desk which contains dozens of small notebooks, very few of which have been used but I just like to KNOW that they are there ready... along with the clear pencil case containing HB Pencils, a metal sharpener and a sketching pad should I ever decide to take up drawing.
There must be a psychological reason for this obsession. Perhaps it a branch of control-freakery, or a yearning for the pre-computer days where written communication had personality, style and permanence - non-volatile paper records last hundreds of years whereas these rambling keyboard taps will be merely dots and dashes in a few days - yesterday's computer chip rappings.
Now I've come OUT as a stationery freak I'd like a proper name for it. Any suggestions?
