temptation, thy name is sharpie

Yesterday, in Costco:

Having just purchased a pack of these three weeks ago, just exactly how many black Sharpie fine point pens do I need?


And how long must I stand there, mouth agape, to arrive at this conclusion?

Um...52 minutes.

That's a long time to spend staring at, fondling, this pack of five million identical black pens, pretending to scrutinize them, raising one eyebrow as if to ponder the value, when really, the fucking pens emit a pheromone or something and I just can't resist the urge to buy them whenever I see them.

my life doesn't pose many opportunities to use the sharpie fine points. now, the retractable extra fine point sharpies...those are my workmates. I use those all the time and find myself buying them up as if there will be a sudden drought of them.

Have you discovered the new Sharpie pens? They are still permanent, but don't bleed through the paper.

I <3 them!! The only way they could be better would be if they were retractable.

I was just coveting some today at Target. I don't need them, but I want them!!
