Well, probably not anyway.
As I have already discussed my obsession with notebooks, I thought I'd share my preferences in writing utensils as pens and paper go hand in hand. (And I had no other idea for U-Day.)
This list changes from time to time as I'm always on the hunt for a new pen. I can't make a trip to an office supply story without spending entirely too much time browsing the pen aisle, just to see what's new.
Here are my current faves (see if you can spot the trend):
|10. Bathtub markers. Perfect for recording shower epiphanies.|
However, they will turn your grout fun colors, so be prepared to scrub the walls.
|9. Pilot Varsity fountain pens. Not only do they make your handwriting|
look all lovely and fancy, they also come in purple and turquoise!
|7. Pilot Precise V5 pens. Smooth writing and they're available in|
a variety of colors including...purple and turquoise.
|6. Uni-Ball Vision. Very vibrant colors. Purple and pink and a very pretty blue.|
|4. Uni-Ball Signo click top pens. I found these at the cash register at Staples. They're|
black ink infused with another color. It sounded cool, so I bought purple and teal.
Turns out, they are pretty cool. They write nice, and the ink looks awesome.
|2. Sharpie Fine Point pens. Available in a variety of colors (including purple!).|
They write nicely, make your handwriting look neat. I use these as my
storyboard calendar pens.
|1. Pilot G-2 clicky top gel pens. They write beautifully, always make my|
handwriting look great, and come in purple and teal. And, you know,
other colors. Black, blue, red, orange. But I like the purple and teal best.
So, pen companies, let this be a lesson to you. Want me to buy your product? Make it available in purple or turquoise ink. Or maybe a purple-infused turquoise ink. Oh, that would be so cool. I really hope someone does that someday.
But that's enough from me for one day (and possibly longer.). Let's hear from you. Do you have any favorite writing utensils? What's your favorite ink color?
