The retard pen arrived at last from friend of the moment, jkirlin.

Since I've nothing like the photo skills of jk or prairie girl, I thought I'd fancy it up with a little context.

Absolutely wonderful Billy -- I am thrilled!

Very cool photos in a wonderfully whacky context.

Hmmm. A Maine State Lottery Coin. Now that's the kind of gift that just keeps on giving.

Clo said...

Oups! I'm not the first... But my sister is, hee hee heeeeeeeeee. So at least I will SEE that fabulous pen!
Now, the pen is going to take a little vacancy in our french city, and visit the "Place Royale" and the "Ch√Ęteau Frontenac"... wow!
P.S. I love your pics with the "little context".

GONNA GET IT! GONNA GET IT! GONNA GET IT! hum...
Nice photos Billy. And I love the idea of sending a gift with it... So you will have a little souvenir when the pen will go away from SF...All the Way to Quebec City, where I intend to pass it to Clo, then Mei Shile, then back to me for the post... YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Tonight, Chemical Billy let me touch the retard pen. I feel as if I have been changed forever...

Chemical Billy said...

merlinprincesse, you are! the very first! ...and you and clo are in Quebec City? Just one of my favorite places on the North American continent. I'm jealous of the pen.

However, it will first go to Varla, who is right here in River City.

jk, your dedication is touching.

prairie girl, high praise indeed!

jason, isn't it though?

Geo, carbon monoxide poisoning!!! Goodness, girl, are you okay? I'm better, me, but...carbon monoxide poisoning?

bluemonkey, I could see the glow as you left.

This pen reminds me of a company that we always pass on our way up to my parents' house. It called "Remedial Engineering". Is that where the "special" engineers get work? ;)
