02 09 11 - 21:52This is random, but I got to try one of these today -- probably the best writing instrument I've picked up in a while:
PaperMate Silhouette Elite pens, $21/12
These pens literally glide across the page. The ink is thick and not smeary like the goofy gel pens everyone is selling. Even better, the barrel is hard plastic except for a comfort grip. Good clicking action too. For the price difference, you'd be crazed to buy the usual modern "athletic shoe" style pen which will blurt smears across the page, when you can have the writing experience of what apparently is a well-engineered pen from PaperMate.
