Corporate pens

Posted: October 3rd, 2001, by Marceline Smith

anyone want to send me additions to my corporate pen collection? they’ve got to be advertising huge corporations or ‘hip’ design/internet companies. so far I’ve got a solid silver Windows 2000 pen [okay, it’s actually some kind of crappy metal painted silver], a Microsoft MSDN plastic pen, a purple Macromedia pen and an astounding pen from Learning IT [they’re not a corporation but the pen has a mini yellow highlighter in the lid!]. send more to me at the address on the contact page. I’ll love you for it.

I’m going to go buy lots of new records today after being stuck in the house for the first four days of my new paycheck. I’ve got four in mind but I don’t think I should buy them all. not with the new Fugazi album coming out very very soon. I really want the Ride boxset though…

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
