not as quiet as it would appear

As you can see, it's been over a week since my last entry. This may cause some to think, "why that lazy bastard hasn't done a darn thing!", but you'd be wrong! While it's true I didn't produce mass amounts of anything on Christmas Eve, the dungeon has been a bustling!

I received a gift certificate and some cash for Christmas that was quickly converted into a drill press! I've also received a new order from my good friends at Woodcraft. This order consisted of some drill bits, finish and an assortment of pen blanks. I got assortment "A". Some friends got me a gift certificate to woodcraft that will allow me to get assortment "B". I can't wait to start making some pens with this wood, the colors are amazing!

Some of those pen blanks are so cool! The Purple Heart and Zebra are neat. It's kinda cool to hold a piece of wood in your hand and know that not too long ago it was a tree in Africa.

The Purple Heart is really cool. I've heard about it from a couple customers at the real job that use it, but this is the first time I've ever seen it. I also like the looks of the Cocobolo, it's got that deeper chocolately look to it.

I'm curious to see the reaction I get when I bring some into work, perhaps I can get this habit (I mean hobby) to pay for itself!

I'm a little offended seeing that a pen never leaves my hand in the 8+ hours of my work day that I didn't get one, at least I would use it and not store it in a china cupboard or complain about the big bubble end(but I don't think i could write with the bubble end either).
Oh well what is the saying...
Wish in one Hand, S*** in the other and see which fills up first!!!
