to any of you who enjoy the line in "you've got mail" ~ "i would send you a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils," you might enjoy this find. last week, heidi showed me her new pencil sharpener, that she got a costco. i begged her immediately after i sharpened a pencil to get me one. its the best pencil sharpener i've ever seen! (as a teacher, i've seen a lot of 'em!) it stops sharpening when its done! how cool is that?!? rush out to costco and get you one!
