Probably not silly, but I keep a couple of sketchbooks next to my recliner chair and a jar of pencils, different kinds of pens (micro, fine tipped sharpies that don't smell), a little pencil sharpener, some erasers, and a bed pillow that I put on my lap to use as a drawing table. I'm a constant doodler and this way I can look back at my doodles without having a ton of scraps of paper around. I always doodled during meetings at work and the boss didn't seem to mind. He knew, I guess, that this is how some people listen, and I was an active participator in the meetings so he knew I was 100% there. He asked me if he could have one of my doodles after a meeting, once.
