Pens and Paper
Yeah, off topic as hell, but someone needs to throw you guys a curveball every now and then.

Do you have a favorite pen/pencil type/style? If you're buying journals, are you picky?

I like fountain pens, and someday, I'll pick up some Mont Blanc and Waterman fountains, but in the meantime, I'm OK with disposable Pilot Varsity and the occasional upgrade.

I also am picky about my journals. I like the Moleskine/Piccadilly graph paper journals, and Ive been known to buy MiquelRius graph ring notes by the case.

Anybody else that picky?

I think those companies would be out of business if you were the only one buying their products

In school I always liked Pilot pens. One semester I thought it would be fun to have all Mead Composition notebooks like John Doe in Se7en (yes, my sick **** ass bought them for that reason), but I got two B's that semester and hated the wide rule, so I generally bought one Five Star three subject notebooks and three Mead single subjects.

Uniball Vision Elite is the best disposable pen I have used.

I really like gel ballpoint pens.

Not sure of the names or sizes, but I like the medium tip gel pens and medium Sharpies for my work. Nothing REAL fancy. I lose them too often.

I have the neatest handwriting known to man. I get comments from others on my printing being almost printer-like. For me, I have about 50 of these pens and carry them on my person constantly:

Best you can get. Doesn't smear and smooth writing. You get the occasional bad pen, but for the most part, they are top of the line.

As far as journals, I found that Moleskine smears too much. I get regular Mead notebooks, usually the graph paper notebooks.

I have a Mont Blanc roller I take to more formal meetings but think those Vision Elites may be better than it to write with.

Love my Mont Blanc fountain pen.

When I was a kid I always thought fountain pens were unbelievably cool.

I guess I still love the way they write, but they're too much of a smeary mess to use every day.

Lying, cheating pens? No thanks. You know damn good and well they've been ink doping for years.
