Not very clever, I know. But I'm posting twice in one day so I can finish out the A-to-Z Challenge in the month it's actually supposed to end. It's been a struggle to get a post done every day (bad planning on my part...mostly because I did not plan ahead at all. Bad Mary, no cookie).
Still, I do love to finish things--almost as much as I like to start things.
Every year, I buy a couple of packages of Bic Cristal blue pens (not black *shudder*). I've been using these pens since high school and they are by far the most reliable, consistent pens I've ever come across--and they're cheap. I've tried the fancy ones, the smooth ones, the ones with awesomely comfortable grips all for nought. I always return to the blue pens of my high school years.
Why? Because they start smoothly and finish strong. The Ze End with the Bic pens is the best. The last bit of visible blue ink disappears into tip and still writes for a good long time. It's a thrill to finish one of these because it's good to the very last pen stroke.
This is my attempt to make like a Bic Cristal blue pen to finish strong here and say ZE END to A-to-Z Challenge 2012! If I haven't yet made my way around to your blog, I'll get there, I promise (It may take me another month but I'll get there).
