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: http://www.amazon.com/uni-ball-Visio...l+vision+elite

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.

The Lance Armstrong of pens.

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.
