    It's a Built In Post-it!

     Every single month, I have to write "RENT" on the back of my hand in big black letters or I will seriously forget to pay my rent. And it still takes me a few days (rent's not late until after the 5th). But hey, it works - I've never paid my rent late so far...

    Lots of Reminders!!

    My hand is like the portable, and possibly unloosable diary. It my guides me through my every day, being there for me when I need it most. My most important reminder at the moment is so important, I've used both hands. Writing one half the message on my left, and the rest on my...

    No Paper

    Currently on my hand is ' Find book' ' Research John Williams' ' Rename doodles' ' Organise desk' ' Make sandwich' - I have a few pictures doodled on my hand as well. I know this is bad for you, and you could probably get ink poisoning or something. But I never have any...

    Oh Yes.

    I do it all the time. Particularly at school. I've used pen, sharpie marker, pencil (it hurts, believe me), white out... whatever is available. My dad gets so angry with me when I come home with scrawl all over my skin, though. And one of my friends once wrote "Penis"...

    At Work..

    ...my boss is always asking me why do I have to write reminders on my hands. I know I forget things I don't particularly care about quickly and my hands are something I can't lose, throw away or forget!

    I Write On My Hand

    Especially when I don't have any paper.  If it's something that I'll need to remember much later I'll write it on my hand and then rewrite it once I get to my desk.

    X Marks the Spot
