It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Uni-ball Super Ink Robot!

OK…so the name could be a little more “super hero-ish”, but how awesome would this be?  A freakin’ ROBOT from Uni-ball!  This is a marriage made in heaven for all us pen nerds who also love a good action figure.  Check out this post from OfficeSupplyGeek.  He’s making it his personal duty to start up a petition to try and get this hero of the pen world made.  Be sure to head over there and vote.  And while you’re at it, be sure to comment as well.  Who knows?  The more interest we show, the better our chances will be of actually putting our grubby little hands on this treasure.  I so want one!

Pen Junkie

I am a pen junkie.  Actually, it’s much bigger than that.  I’m a stationery/office supply/anything to do with paper/writing junkie.  In high school I aspired to become an administrative assistant because they got to file, organize, fill out forms, type, staple, 3-hole punch…well, you get the picture.  And when I was even younger, my cousin and I would play office all summer long.  Some people played doctor…I played office.  Unlike other kids, I loved the “Back to School” season because it meant new notebooks, pens, pencils and pencil cases.  While other girls were coveting the newest fashions and proclaiming nothing came between them and their Calvin’s, I was busy checking out the latest models of Parkers, Bics and Paper Mates.

Today I have more pens than I can possibly use in this lifetime.  The number of journals I have is staggering – most of which are empty vessels waiting for their turn to hold some great secret or “The Next Best Novel”.  If you were to look in my desk drawer you’d find countless clips, push pins, post-it notes and thingamafloggies all neatly organized.  I don’t use half the stuff, but I like to look at them and organize them.  Sometimes it’s by color and sometimes it’s by type.  Sick, I know.  Places like Office Depot, Staples, and Office Max are some of my favorite places to shop.  I can easily waste away an hour just browsing the isles.  My newest favorite find is the on-line store JetPens.  I’ve spent so much money there in the past 3 months that I should own stock!  Seriously.
