    Pens Are Beautiful

    My favorite color pens are black and purple gel ink. Black is so strong and bold. It's just a color that seems to permenant and gives your words meaning. Purple is fun and funky. It shows up on all kinds of paper, no matter if it's liquid ink or gel ink. Purple is something...

    Just because. Now I have to type another sentence because apparently "just because" isn't enough of a reason why I prefer black ink over any other colors of ink. Oh well...

    most of the time I prefer blue. Either a medium one or a very thin one.  I think the medium one is better to write with but the stuff written looks better with the thin one.

    Black, medium point-real ink, not gel--with a wide barrel I'm very particular about my pens.  They have to drift across my paper like a boat on the wave-less sea.

    Green, Preferable Dark And Rich.

    I want pen that is the color of a Christmas tree, early in the morning when you wonder if its time to jump on your sleeping parents and declare it time to open that present you hand picked earlier but they wrapped up anyway.

    But of Course...pink.

    Pink is "my signature color". It represents my fight against breast cancer. So of course my favorite ink color is pink as well. Plus, hubby isn't so much into pink so he leaves my pens alone...hehehehe

    Anyone else notice red and green pens suck? Actually, beyond the realm of blue and black pens, everything else runs out of ink quickly or doesn't work as well, so i usually use black, but I really REALLY like purple pens. It just screams "I'm nerdy and sophisticated!"...

    Purple Or Green

    My preference would have to be purple or green, they show up well and are a change to what people usually use - black and blue. So it's very good then. Most of my pens are either of these colours.

    My Color of Choice

    I prefer to use a pen of blue ink for most things, unless it's a professional document that I have to sign then I go for the black ink pen. But on a regular basis, I use blue ink, just not has dull to look at on paper. I have to have some color :)
