if i have the option, i stick with uni-ball vision elite pens.
they come in lots of colors, but if you know me, you know i prefer BLACK. oh, if you don't know me, black is my favorite color. please save speeches about absence of color. i don't pick apart why you like mauve, do i?
is anyone's favorite color mauve?
anyway, these are my favorite pens.
they write...like butter. you don't need to scribble on your shoe to start them. they do not leak. i think the box actually says you can take them on airplanes. i don't fly that often, so i wouldn't say it's a high selling point for me...but i'm not that familiar with your flying habits, so i cannot speak for you. maybe some of you need to know that kind of detail.
i write a lot. and i write quickly. and sometimes in a big, sweeping fashion. (like, say, i don't know, when i am signing checks and stuff.) so a smooth, perfect flow of ink is highly important to me.
so what's your favorite type of pen?
