I am an addict. That's the first step right? Admitting you have a problem? I've actually been an addict since Kindergarten. Yes, that long. I even knew back then that I had a problem. Each year in early August my parents would take me school supply shopping. The brand new pencils, crayons, notebooks and pencil cases were better than Christmas. That's when you know as a six year old that you have a problem - the new school supplies were more exciting than Christmas gifts. Over the years, I've learned to control my addiction. Then I decided to get a job in the office supply industry. I've never been the same.
My home office is cluttered with samples. My addiction to new, cool office supplies prevents me from donating them (I may need those ten different sizes of Post-Its at some point in time!) The number of pens in my house would amaze you. There is, however, one pen that has captured my heard and my hand.
In my very organized (really) pile of samples, the one I dig into most is the pen pile. I mean, why not use a different pen every day? That was until I was introduced to the Schneider Slider Memo XB. This is the pen for people who love to write. I don't mean the people who love to write via a keyboard, but those who actually like to feel the words flow from their brain to their hand and then through the ink that hits the page. Sounds a bit overboard? Not for me. I'm not sure how Schneider created what the call "Viscoglide-Technology", but I LOVE it. With it's bold ink, this is by far the smoothest writing pen I have ever used. Needless to say, the rest of my collection is starting to gather dust. My recommendation to you, try this pen. Then, put the rest of your pens in your cup or on your desk for coworkers to borrow (or steal) and hide this one inside your desk drawer. Until next time, when I tell you about my addiction to the Ampad Versa...just need to get my hands on this little organizational miracle notebook.
