    Have you ever had to ground your pens?

    Only the ones that quit working when I'm trying to cover a game.

    Never the Pilot gel pens. ;)
  3. I said Bics on here before but I was wrong ... we stock up on cheap ass Papermate's ...

    I grabbed three black ones -fresh out of the box! - today because I was going to be out on the road ... all three gave me fits. Fuck you Papermate.

    Papermate Flairs have gobs of ink. Unfortunately, when I inevitably leave one in my pants or shirt pocket on laundry day, they have gobs of ink too.

    I prefer the Zebra F-301... at least, that's what it says on my pen. Anyway, fine point, blue ink, not overly bulky, extremely reliable. And they're refillable. Bonus.

    Rosie's household tip of the day...

    One of the best ways to get ink out of clothing is hair spray. Spray the ink stain with hair spray -- Aqua Net works really well -- and rinse. Repeat if necessary. Really bad stains will require a few treatments.

    My employer gives us Bic pens with the company logo on them. I used to give them away to family until they complained about how much they suck. I buy my own now.

    Used the Pilot Precise Grip Extra Fine yesterday, very solid.
