Cuts Construction Paper into Perfect Imperfection: review, Scotch Precision Bent Scissor, 8-Inches

The sleek matte steel finish of the Scotch Precision Bent Scissor sliced through the crisp green construction paper. That's all I wanted it do it, and now it is done.

Scotch Precision Bent Scissor, 8-Inches (1448B)The blades bit tightly on each side of the sheet. Crunching through, the edges of my project were straight and true. Sharp, yes, it is true, and magnificently so. Comfortable opening and closing the blades, the grips never slipped from my hold.

My project finished imperfectly, per my lack of skill and not the scissors' capacities: I fashioned snowflake-esque shapes as I bode my wait for a phone call. I expect these scissors to live a long life helping distract me from my impatience, and cutting more ordinary things such as coupons and queries from well-meaning politicians delivered by post.

May your scissors cut a sharp line in all your projects.

Osama bin Laden is Dead: A Moment of Silence

Osama bin Laden is dead. I don't get into politics on this blog, but this is big news.

Like most of America, 9-11 struck me hard. It meant things changed, and they changed in ways we could not predict.

Now, the mastermind of 9-11 is dead. I don't know what this means or what will happen.

You happened upon my blog looking for a romantic tale, or a poem, or a book review. There is time enough for that. Or, this post itself showed up in your search and you have no idea what I'm about. That's OK. However, take a look at the clock on your computer or phone or watch.

Let a minute pass quietly, recognizing what is ahead in our nation, and in the world, is something we must approach without fear, with much faith, and with unity to stand against evil wherever it happens.

Peace to all of you.
