Michael reviews some gel pens. I was a G2 user for a long time, but recently bought a big box of Zebra Sarasas and have been pretty happy with them, though they do tend to randomly give a little too much ink sometimes.

Add me to the list of people who gets happy when they go to an office supply store. I have more paper, pens, tape, and office doo-hickeys than food in my fridge. I may not survive the weeks following an earthquake but I could supply a small government agency for a year on my supplies.
