The Thing About a Typewriter…

Uncategorized

…is you can write on almost anything. I’ve been digging through some so-so poems and surgically removing keeper lines here and there. In the middle of this, I got a package in the mail filled with all manner of clipped bits from old magazines. Add to this my house full of typewriters and there you go. Now the keepers have someplace to go and all is right in the world.

It takes so little to make me happy. I mean that.

They’re impossible to read as-is, so click on each one to make it bigger.

The other thing about a typewriter is that you can’t correct anything, so all typos are “beauty marks.”

  1. Okay, when you said you got a package in the mail filled with all manner of clipped bits from magazines and I thought, “wow, she’s very calm about getting a ransom note”. I should stop watching so much television.These are too cool!! You should frame them!

  2. Yeah, I’m back. I got one of those award thingys where you’re supposed to pass it on to five more bloggers and I gave you one. The details are at my blog. You know, it’s kind of fun to be popular with the other kids!

  3. Oooh, you got an award.I’m in love with your poems–they are so cool like this.Tell Emily I may have had an actual conversation with the Walgreens manager (Me: Obviously looking for the 6/$1 memo books Him: Very tall guy in Walgreens shirt)Can I help you with something, Ma’am. . .They’re out of stock, we commiserated on what a great deal they are, and he gave me a rain check ON THE SPOT.Needless to say, he was very helpful and very charming and their children would be very, very tall. But he gets a thumbs way up from me. And if he’s NOT the one she’s talking about, there’s another strong possibility!SV

  4. I have an award! I’m somebody! I’m making my list right now so the torch(es) can be passed. Thank you, gal!Oh, Steph. Em tells me there are TWO tall ones – one cute and the other, not so much. I hope this was the one, because anyone who’d give an unasked-for raincheck on mini composition books has promise. Six for a dollar? I’m sending Em over there to get MY raincheck.
