Write different

Everybody needs school supplies. If you go to Michigan State, that means you need to stock up on cheap beer, cologne and lame excuses for bad grades. For the rest of us, that means pens and paper. How a person uses pens says a lot about his or her character. Are you a pen stealer, a cheapskate who writes with pencils from the golf course, or the anal type who cherishes fancy-schmancy “writing instruments”? Perhaps the Morph pen by Cross Pens ($50 at www.cross.com) is for you. It “morphs” from a regular pen to an ergonomic triangle-handled pen with a twist of a dial that allows all you rebels who think outside the box to also write outside the margins.
