Show and tell

Look what Alex gave me for Christmas: an orange Swingline stapler, the best stapler I ever saw. He knows I would never spend the money to get this for myself. I love it.

My stapler, which I use quite often, is black, which explains why I hide it behind my computer monitor. Too boring. I would proudly display the orange stapler. Must.Find.One.

flanthrower said...

What a cool gift! I didn't know they made them in other colors (besides red). I totally thought of Milton when I first saw it.

Amy said...

Is it sad that I knew EXACTLY where that stapler came from? (I love CB2 way too much...)

bettyninja said...

Perfect!

Shauna said...

I love it!! Best hubs ever!!

Jacee said...

Oh, shoot! I just bought a RED one (a la Office Space), but I would've held out for ORANGE! Fabulous!

Anne Magee said...

That is awesome! Does it also come in hot pink? Because my dd would absolutely love it!

Dee Beale said...

Fab!

June said...

Although I'm not the orangiest person around (wonder who that is?) I love this stapler. After seeing it, I suddenly realized that I will have to take a picture of my orange polka dot teapot and post it to your "orangey goodness gallery. Oh, and Happy New Year to you!

Erin said...

I got one too for Christmas! I love it - it makes me happy whenever I see it on my desk. And lots of people have commented also!

gnkinis said...

I must have that for my office desk! It will certainly complement my in-box, mug, pen holder and highlighters - all orange.

Julie said...

Nice! I would love one of those, especially if it comes in ORANGE.

Lynne said...

It's amazing how something so simple can make someone so happy - it is fab!

Megumi said...

That taste showes he is an engineer!

I love to find his engineer temperament

You, too, right?

Katie said...

oh la la! It's a practical but surprisingly really pretty gift! I want one.

Jess said...

Yep, me too, Megumi. When he opened the things in his Christmas stocking, he carefully arranged them on the table making sure they were evenly spaced with sides parallel to each other. :)

Tina said...

that is an awesome gift--practical and pretty!!

Angie said...

Just had to comment since it is soooo Office Space! I am a huge fan!

tula said...

The Pitter Patter Boutique said...

I'm new & I have no idea why you love orange. Please share. Is it a Vitamin C thing like the commercial? :-)

P.S. The stapler rocks!

Jess said...

It's a happy color.

Roseanna said...

Swingline makes the best staplers, period!!
I just received my orange one and love it. Thank you, I have been coveting my husbands cherry red one...but, orange rules!

Linda said...

OMG! I am going to order one as soon as possible......8-) Until I found your blog, I thought I was the only person this crazy about orange. My family thinks I'm strange because of this.....sigh. They just don't have the "orange gene", I guess. I'm so happy to find others living in the world of orange.
