Pen-o-phile.

These are the best fucking rollerball pens. I'm going to go home and throw out all my other pens as soon as I can buy me a carton of these babies.

Where can you get these magic pens? Like at a regular old Office Max? I looooooove new office supplies.

Oh, did get the Wiz cd. It rocks! Thought I had sent you an email about that, but THANK YOU. :)

I got mine at the K-Mart going out of business sale. I am going to be very sad if I can't track them down at the OfficeMax or Office Depot or what have you. (They weren't on the web pages of either chain, but you know how that goes.) Specifically the pink pen, too, because the pink pen rocks my world.

You're welcome. :)

I hate rollerballs...
... but that's mostly because I am left-handed and end up dragging my hand through the ink.

Re: I hate rollerballs...
What pens work for that? I am trying to imagine a pen that has ink that dries like, immediately, and I can't.

Basic ballpoint pens rarely do it. I'm a huge fan of the very basic Bic disposable pens, medium point, black ink. I buy them in ten packs.

Some lefties do that hook-handed thing, which keeps the hand out of the ink, but I found it to be wrist-crampy.

at least we're crazy about pens! i can think of alot of worse things! :)

i think it also has to do with it being fall and the whole atmosphere of back-to-school-supply buying.

I'm still going to cling to my Fountain Pen Ways, but I do have to concede the occaisional utility of a good rollerball - a point that got driven home the other day when I signed a receipt with my fountain pen and the cheap paper shredded enough under the tip that I had to get a pair of modelling tweezers and clean out the nib. Not Much Fun.

Still, I'll have to keep an eye out for these. They look just about right for knockaround pens.

i can't afford the kind of fountain pen i like. but i do like fountain pens. sometimes, as you point out here though, you need a low-maintenance pen.

Yay!
Not bad. And unlike the Pilot Precise pens I usually use, you can buy the off colors sepeately, and not just in the variety pack. If only I could find some other colors besides green and purple. I am very jealous of your pink.

Re: Yay!
where did you find the place to buy them? i've been having trouble with that. they aren't carried anywhere nearby and i couldn't find them on any office depot type websites.
