...the past two weeks have been ones of intense writing for me...between writing two abstracts for two different conferences, a conference paper and an article (that got published here) for EF Magazine here in the city, I seem to be constantly surrounded by paper, notes, post-its, books, pens and yup you guessed it~pencils! So I figured, why not have some fun with word play and do a post, not really about writing with pencils, but about my recent obsession: pencil skirts! You know, those lovely form-fitting garments that come out of hibernation around spring time and stick around until the first nasty snow fall the following winter...since I am impatiently, yet eagerly, awaiting the spring, I figured why not help to push the impatience along and feature some of the lovely photos of my current favourite apparel, which I have been hoarding all winter on my laptop...and so here they are, some of my favourite images of pencils, not the type you write with, but the type you wear and look fabulous in...sigh, common spring, come soon so I can finally rouse some of my own lovelies from their winter slumber and parade around the city surrounded by blossoms in full spring bloom...wishful thinking? Ya think?
Until then, I find comfort in raiding the interweb for inspirational fashion images...hope you enjoy these...

Alright back to work, back to reading, back to writing...with pencils...less permanent that way...
