Things I am fond of #6 ... a pencil sharpener?!

I know it sounds crazy, but I LOVE this X-Acto pencil sharpener {X-Acto® By Boston® School Pro™ Electric Pencil Sharpener to be X-Acto! HA!}  It lasts a long time {years ... knock on wood}, it sharpens a lot of pencils quickly, it holds a TON of pencil shavings and you can sharpen multiple sizes!  I just LOVE IT! 
I linked to the cheapest one I found at Amazon... more expensive at Office Depot & such...}
***Random thought {SQUIRREL!} does anyone else think that the pencils of today are terrible?!!!  Ours always break when sharpened or don't sharpen at all...BLECH! ***
Any who... back to the pencil sharpener.  It is a bit expensive, but it is well worth it.  I'm curious if anyone else out there uses it and if you love it as much as I do...
I'll leave you with a joke:
What did one pencil say to the other?
You're lookin' SHARP!


  1. All teachers in our building got one this year and my gosh...I do love it!

    1. So much better than some of the slooooooooooowwwwww ones out there for sure!
