First, the pen.
I drew this on the back of my notes at church on Sunday. It's of a pen I got from Super Stock at the HOW Conference in June. The drawing doesn't do it justice. It lights up! Red! That fact alone catapults it into the top ten pens I've had in my lifetime. But it writes well too, and in black ink. Money. This is up there with flying cars and living on the moon, the kind of futuristic thing that we were all promised long ago. Only difference is that this actually is reality. It's the future, now!
Here's how my kitchen looked as of this morning. That's a brand new half-wall in the foreground, I made that. It'll all come together nicely when the cabinets arrive sometime.
