today's pen is the pen that more or less is responsible for this blog. this is was the pen that i had used to sign the check at denny's, it wasn't until i got home that i realized that i had put it into my pocket without noticing. this happens quite often actually, i'm pretty notorious about that sort of thing.
after i discovered i has taken this pen from some poor waitress that was undoubtedly forced to take orders by using ketchup and her finger for the rest of the shift, i began to wonder what brand of pen this was. it had no cap nor markings on the body, i was looking on google for some hint, but to no avail.
so this is where i realized that i had to get into the habit of posting regular work and that i have a pretty extensive collection of pens and the real-life experiences that i have had using them.
so this pen is made of a metal body, covered in a grayish ribbed rubber sheath (and yes, know that there is an obvious joke in that). it is a medium sized ballpoint pen that had good flow, it doesn't skip or stutter, it had good bite, it interacts well with paper, the ink is capable of a fairly wide range in value and it covers pencil lines with no problem.
other than that i don't have much else to say about this pen, however, if you are reading this and happen to know what brand this pen is, and you tell me, i will draw you an awesome picture with any one of the nearly one hundred and twenty pens that i have featured on this blog.
