My Other Addiction

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

Not many knows about this addiction of mine. Not that I am keeping it a secret! Pst! I have few other addictions - but that will be for another time.

OK! I am addicted to PEN, and I love to collect them. I can't resist "browsing" through the pens/pencils section whenever I am in the mall or bookshops. Always looking for new pens and designs. It does not matter whether it is a cheap or expensive pen (expensive to me is more than $100 for a pen - can't afford too expensive addiction anyway!). So far, I have more than 100 pens in my collection :), excluding those in the office. I rarely use them, just like to collect them.

And here is one that I got for myself during lunch break today (Another pen! that would be hubby's reaction :D) - its a Zebra slide pen, my first slide pen actually - I think they are the "in pen" now. Love the green color, actually I also like the purple and turquoise color but I can only choose one and decided on the green. A similar Parker Slide Pen is in the next display but cost about 6x more at RM119 - a bit expensive but if I "want" it I can still change it to "affordable" (wicked Mei) :) Anyway, I will try out the Zebra slide pen first. I might go back for the Parker pen later....hehehe

Anyone out there who is also PEN ADDICT??

Mei, Have you seen Bead Pens?? I think you would have a lot of fun decorating the barrels with wrapped wire and sparklies! http://www.beadpens.com/ http://www.namebeads.com/penparts.html

Diana! Now I am in trouble. I want those pens...and now I have to make one of those..oh no....my pens. What a way to combine my two addictions.
Thank you very much for sharing this site. I have never seen it before. Another one into my "to do" list :)

Ooh Mei. I LOVE pens. I think it's because I'm a nurse, and nurses need fine writing instruments. Plus, we get all these awesome FREE pens from drug companies. But, they have to be black ink, and I like them to have a click button at the top to push so you don't get ink in your pocket and so they're easy to open and close! :D
