Pens, Puking, and Props.

Read on, and I'll tell you what I want to see.

Stop making pens that write upside-down. I have no use for them. Don't ask me why, but I just don't spend enough time (writing) upside-down to need a pen for that purpose.

I would, hewever, like to see a pen that can write when I am outside and it's like -20. That is something that I could use quite a bit these days. It is kind of getting on my nerves that I go outside with a pen to check plates and it will only write for the first 5 seconds of being outdoors. After that I basically make imprints on the paper using the pen and have to copy it down again once I get inside. I could use a stick from the ground to do that.

Stupid. That's what all these pens are. Stupid.

Does anyone have any insight into pens? I am pretty sure that I REQUIRE one that writes outside in the cold ALL THE TIME, not just for a few seconds. Help!


And another thing:
This is long overdue I believe.

I want to say thanks to all those who cleaned (and cleaned up after) my stupid ass on New Years. I am not 100% sure on the details but I seem to recall needing to thank Trevor very specifically, as well as Laura and some other person (guy I think) in the hallway. As I said the details are fuzzy at best so please don't feel left out if I didn't specifically thank you, I want to thank you, but I don't know who you are.

I would also like to appologize to all those in any kind of proximity to the event, or actually just everyone in general. Especially if anyone got splashed.

I feel pretty bad about the whole deal, and hope that I can help out those who helped me at some point in the future. I always thought that I would eventually learn some kind of lesson. It would appear however that at best I am a slow learner. I have several lame explanations and so forth, but it doesn't change anything. What's done is done.

I was going to type a bunch more, but I have decided not to.

Thanks to most, and appologies to all,
Mike "The Mess" Mighton
