When innovation catches up to itself

“Writing”, 22 November 2008 (Photo credit: ed_needs_a_bicycle)

I’m recycling something I posted on my old blog a few years ago…again! I’m still adjusting to going back to a 40-hour workweek. If by adjusting I mean cutting out all time spent writing and cartooning. I’ve always said, always since a few years ago when I was in college and thought about it, that when you introduce a new activity to your routine, something has to be given up. Two events can’t occupy the same time space, usually. There are exceptions, such as eating and tasting, or watching and viewing.

Usually, as is the case for me, when you introduce an activity such as work, another activity, such as work (writing and cartooning have been my work for several months now), must diminish in priority. I’m contemplating making sleep be the loser and keep writing and cartooning, but I’ve been down that road before. Things will settle again and I should have better time for writing. Until then, here is another blast from the past. If you like what is written here, check out the book compilation of my old blog posts, Ajax’s Whimsical Revolution (eBook and paperback).


As Seen on TV…In My Mind

It is the greatest unnecessary invention since the Egg-Wave! As redundant and ridiculous as the Snuggie! Can you stand the anticipation of what it is? I can’t wait to tell you, so I imagine you must be full to the brim of excitement!!

I present to you, the binder with a shoulder strap! Tired of carrying your three ring binder from class to class in your hand, but can’t be bothered to weigh yourself down with a back pack? Messenger bags are the trend, but do you really need to carry around all that extra lugging space? You can fit at least three books in a messenger bag, but you only need to bring one.

Here is the answer: the binder with a shoulder strap! Our engineers have taken the standard three ring binder and attached a luxurious pleather strap to the binding. The strap has four loops across the front to hold your pencil, pen, Chapstick, rolled-up index card, candy cane, WHATEVER!

You can carry four of anything that will fit! Each end of the strap clips into a special strap loop welded to the spine of the binder. Simply clip the strap into each end of the binder and throw it over your shoulder like a messenger bag – without all that horrendous unused carrying space, you are conserving resources! When you get to your destination, simply unclip the strap from the binder and clip the two ends together. You now have a stylish bandoleer for your writing utensils or whatever!

When you are ready to travel again, all you need to do is unclip and reclip and head out, its as easy as 1, 2, 3! As if this deal could be any better…well we are about to make it so! If you order now, we’ll throw in a second strap, made out of web material, perfect for a casual appearance. But not only that! We’ll send you a fabric cover for your binder, one size fits all! Just slide the binder into the cover, which has metal grommets to clip the strap into, and voila! This deal cannot be beat and is not available in stores, so order now! Only $14.95 for the whole lot, you can’t go wrong…unless you don’t order now!
