Pen Envy

I have a confession: I am a fool for good pens. I love it, love it, love it when ink flows silkily from a well-crafted writing implement. Sometimes, when I have a new pen in my hand, I make up things to write so that I can enjoy my sprawling scrawl on a blank sheet of paper. This could explain my penchant for crafting fiction. It could also explain my carpal tunnel syndrome.

Anyway, I was conducting a meeting the other day and I was distracted by this:

Oh, baby. Uni-ball has slicked up my favorite product in their catalog. And it comes in many pretty colors. I looked down at my own boring stick pen and decided I was going to need to make an office supply run. One Staples trip later, and I am the proud owner of a full-on rainbow of Uni-ball pens. Green, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, black, and blue/black. They are all mine!

Hey, it's the little thrills that keep life interesting, right? RIGHT?
