I was commenting on the use of syrup a mere minutes before you posted how you actively avoid using the word

The announcers on the football game I'm watching have said "trickeration" at least ten times now. What the hell?

Please make Resident Evil a survival horror game again...

l'Incandescent said that he uses pink legal pads, but he also said that he prefers pink highlighters. I would think the highlighted text wouldn't stand out. confused.gif

Anything to increase ambiguity, I guess.

Circumstances are in my favor on this one. Although it's true that I use both pink legal pads and pink highlighters, it is extremely rare that I need to highlight something I've written on my legal pad. I'm typically highlighting documents that I've printed out. (The paper I put in my printer is just regular white.)

I used to always write with a pink pen, but the pen I especially liked got discontinued. Then I used white paper. Since I can't use the pink pen anymore, I compensate with pink paper. (Pink is the best color, and there's not really even a close second.)

I really hate when they discontinue great pen models. My 2.5 foot curly-wacky pen ran out of ink ages ago.

Thanks for clarification. I was actually thinking about this while trying to fall asleep last night. On the inside we're all pink.

I write with a Mont Blanc. I get refills at the store. I feel like a dick though when I go to meetings. The CEO and President and such will be writing with the standard BIC pens from the office supply rooms and I am sitting there with a $600 pen with a diamond in it. Then again, shame on them.

I just use Pilot G2s that I have purchased for me but I notice some of my directs have nice pens.

Maybe you should go the bespoke route. You could have a thread where you document each stage of the process. (And where you subject yourself to criticisms on each of your decisions.)

There is no Bic pen that I find even remotely okay to write with. I can't believe anyone would use them on purpose.

EDIT: I hope you got a good night's sleep irregardless, pB. I'd hate to be responsible, even indirectly, for someone's bad sleep.

Is that the turbo or standard six cylinder?

I don't know, but the same model without the diamond was $400.

Not quite on your baller status but I use Diplomat fountain pens and I always have to bring extra Bics along in my briefcase in case clients have to sign something. Clients NEVER bring their own pen to anything. I've learned my lesson very early about letting them borrow my fountain pen. Most of them have no idea how to write with it and they end up ripping the paper and ruining the nib. Fucking savages I represent. Why do I put up with them?

I'm not the kind of man who would come to Style Forum and type false words into the Reply box: when I use a fountain pen, I sometimes rip the paper too. shog[1].gif
