The cheeseburger of pens.
Sorry for the later post today. I really did not want to buy into the hype around the Sharpie Pens. I thought it was a great idea that Sharpie made these, but I always loved Sharpies for being Sharpies! Sharpies equal- Permanent, thick and 10,000 of them in my drawer when I need them, but not as a writing pen. I caved though and picked up two at Staples or somewhere and I have to admit, I sort of am a fan.
It's not the first pen I will always grab when I need one, but if I happen pick it up when when I am writing, I don't throw it back. I have not found the niche for it yet. It's not for 3x5's... and I do not love it on moleskins...and writes a little thick for my to do list... I am not sure what it does well, but it seems to sort of just...well, it just goes. It's kind of like a cheeseburger from a fast food place, you don't really think you NEED it, but you still get one every now and then, because, really, what's the harm?
