Hi Gadgettes and J-man!

As much as I enjoyed the pens episode, I still feel a need to comment.

Dearest Jason- how can you revile pens so much? As any red-blooded movie going person raised in the last 30-something years, you must know the power of the pen. Take James Bond. Does he ever go with out a pen? How many pens has Q passed on over the years? What about Ethan Hunt? Jason Bourne? The camera pen, the holds micro-fiche pen (AKA old school USB), the acid wielding pen, the listening device pen, the pen as a bomb, the list goes on. I say give the pen the respect it's due, Jason! But hey, you can stay, since the end of last weeks show was hilarious.

Speaking as an artist, I too always enjoyed a trip to the art store to see all the paints and pens sorted by color and variety, it was like seeing my imagination sitting on the shelves anticipating my arrival!

Thanks for all the great shows, Gadgettes and dude.

Sheala, Fan in Georgia!

PS- My mom called on the recent replacement of her cell phone to tell me how excited she was to have the new one in pink.
