December 9, 2013

I like to think of a journal as kind of like a bar frequented only by me and a sole silent listener who neither advises nor judges. Anyone who uses one knows how great it can be to have a place like that to unload all those emotions, ideas and events that would otherwise overload and […]

Pilot MR Gets (Slightly) Wild With New Animal Collection

November 25, 2013

The Pilot MR is one of my favorite retractable ballpoint pens, not so much for the writing – which is above-average smooth for a ballpoint – as for the design of the pen itself.
