Confession: I am a TOTAL office supply whore. I heart the back to school season because all of my favorite stores greet me as I enter with lavish displays of pens, notebooks, folders and other paperish items.

Back to School 2009: Enter the Sharpie retractable pen.

I have been searching like a fiend for this hot little item since I first drooled over the swirling coffee cup in the lame introductory commercial campaign. MUST. HAVE. IT. NOW.

Alas, no brick and mortar stores in the Greater Metro Detroit area could keep them in stock long enough for me to get my hands on one. And, quite frankly, I draw the line at $3.99 shipping from Amazon.com.

So imagine my sheer delight when I found them on Sunday at my neighborhood unfriendly Wally World. YIPPIE!

And in case you were wondering, they are awesome.

Yay! How exciting!! I am like you...office supply stores make me ridiculously excited. Happy writing with your new pens!

HA ha!!! I totally share the obsession. As a kid I always wanted a cash register or gift certificates to office supply stores for my birthday. I could walk every single isle for hours and hours in any given office supply store. Ha!! Oh, and thanks a bunch, I now MUST HAVE the pens as well. Let the hunt begin!!

Oooh I MUST get those. David will love them too!

Do you think we get our obsession from writing in all those books as children and getting scolded for it? Hey, how were we supposed to know you didn't write in them like they did at the library. LOL.

Office Supplies make me so giddy... going back to school supply hopping was my absolute favorite thing and when I started working at my first paper and they showed me the "supply" room... I almost fainted.

I am waiting til I can find these at Staples so I can use my rewards gift certificate. I'm like a kid in a toy store at Staples!
