outofwater: Me outside St John's before my confirmation at the Easter Vigil 2016 (Default)
So the notebooks arrived yesterday, which prompted me to find pens and to wonder about better pens. Or maybe "better." So i went out and bought some pens at Target on my way to pick H up from work.

It was an OK trip. I found that Target's mobile web site will tell you which aisle number the product you are looking at is in the store you have selected. So I knew that the pens I wanted were in aisle B14, for example. That made the trip a very quick in-and-out…even with the delay to realize that somebody had overlaid a package of a similar pen on top of the packages of one of the pens I wanted.

So I found everything quickly, and found that this Target has self-checkout (which I tend to prefer, because I don't have to hand my debit card with the "wrong" name on it to a cashier)…and that went well, except that I tried to pay by debit and it took three times before I used the right combination of card and PIN. (I have debit cards with two different credit unions: and I mixed up which PIN went with which card.)

The notebooks? Are mostly what I expected. The binding is such that it is nice for storage and reading, but I am not sure what I feel about it for writing. But it is fitting the bill as something that is special enough to enjoy using it, but not too special that I fear using it.

That said, I have mostly only done some set-up things. And I am getting nervous about getting started with using it usefully. But I hope to get the ball rolling on that today. Because it's mostly a Just Do It situation. It is good that I have made a few mistakes. Misspellings and a number in the wrong box…easily fixed mistakes, but enough to shatter the illusion that it can (or should be) perfect.
