I must say I'm reminded of Assasin's Creed...
What ever happened to tucking a pencil away behind your ear? It works surprisingly well, if you're not suffering from severe adhd or ucontrollable urges to start headbanging.

Actually, what I've always wanted is a bandolier of pencils like this...
I don't exactly remember what happened, but I think I put on a warmer sweater, when my old wacom pen suddenly went snap and broke in two. It was still working though, just couldn't use the eraser part.
And don't run with pencils.
Did that as a kid, tripped in the rug and stabbed myself in the hand. I remember I freaked out at the amount of blood and for some reason hoped my parents wouldn't notice out of fear they'd take away my pencils. I was 5, and made a bigger fuss about it than it needed. Still got a small grey dot in the hand serving as a reminder :p.
In uni I had an x-acto-type knife in the side pocket of my backpack. After one lecture I tried to lift my bag from beside my foot, but there was some kind of resistance. I tugged a couple of times before I set it down and looked. The upward-pointing knife had cut through the side of the pocket and hooked into my leg. There was quite a bit of blood. No idea why I didn't feel it.
I've been doing watercolor studies in Starbucks. My coffee usually goes on the same crowded little table as all my painting stuff. I've caught myself trying to drink my rinse water. . .
You don't wanna do that.

Hm.. Well I don't paint traditionally very often but when I do I like to scrape into the painting with the back of the brush. This is a problem because I have a habit of putting that end of the brushes in my mouth...
But since I paint digitally mostly.. most things happens whenever the cats jump up on the table and run across the keyboard. Usually something weird happens. I think cats are secretly trying to sabotage me.
