What Are Your Essential Objects?

I tend to geek out over devices. Not necessarily high-tech gadgets (although those too), but even the simple things used for menial, everyday tasks. 

This probably comes from my father. He's a master carpenter, and even aside from a need to have a specific drill or circular saw, his propensity for the particular is evident even in which pencils, staplers and highlighters he uses.

And I won't begin to try to explain the level of brand loyalty he practices when purchasing clothing and footwear.

For me, it's not so different. I like to use certain things for certain tasks. Pens are a big deal for me. So are my bookbags. I could have a "nicer" car, but hope to never part with my baby blue 1980 Volvo 240 Wagon. 

Let's not get me started on typewriters, either.

What are some daily-use "tools" that you can't do without?

1. Pilot Better ballpoint retractable pen, fine point

2. My Olivetti Lettera 32, purchased for $20 Argentinian pesos in Buenos Aires

3. A small, military surplus backpack

4. My Mary Maxim pheasant shawl cardigan (I will end anyone that tries to come between us)
