Where did all of my pens go?

I've never really been short on pens before... usually the situation is that I can't find a pencil or a highlighter. Pens? Not a problem. You get them for free... everywhere.

Well, the tables have turned and last week I had nearly 0 pens. I say "nearly" because I couldn't find any in my bag, but I find it hard to believe that I had killed all of my pens (or lost them).

My friend Meghan has always been a vocal fan of the Uniball Vision Elite Micro pen. I'll never forget when she announced to the class that they had changed her life. (ok, i think this happened but I can't remember really... it was in the fall). So I tried her pen in class, and was pleased but I never pay for pens, so I wasn't about to start. Recently, I got an email from someone else proclaiming their love for the pens and asking for help finding them on sale online.

This particular friend was also really specific about the difference in blue pens, black pens, and blue black pens. I had no idea.

Again, I didn't buy the pens for myself.

So flashforward to this past week, I have ZERO pens. I need pens. desperately.

I gave in.... bought myself some Vision Elite Micro on Amazon .... and got them last Thursday.

I love them. I'm a convert. Meghan was right these pens will change your life. Also, having tried the blue pens and the black pens.... I know see why you'd want blue black pens... they might just be the best combo ever.

So to sum up:
  1. I bought pens for the first time in potentially 5 years
  2. I now know why "blue black" is the best pen color
  3. Its been raining in Boston for 4 days.... and a water resistant pen has become nearly a necessity. As evidence, here is my shopping list that got drenched in the weather yesterday... and was still totally readable.
