You know what I miss?  
GELLY ROLL PENS.

By Sakura.

Remember these? They were so popular about five years ago, and now I just can't seem to find them ANYWHERE.

Did anyone else use these all the time? I was addicted to the things; when I cleaned out my desk drawer I threw away tons of gel pens that had dried up and were no longer writing - but not Sakura Gelly Rolls! The five that I had remaining all continued to work perfectly.

So I have looked for them a bit - at Office Depot, Micheal's, Target, Office Max, Scrapbook Mania, to name the stores I remember - and NOTHING.

PLEASE DON'T TELL ME THESE AREN'T MADE ANYMORE. THEY WERE THE BEST FUCKING PENS EVER.

Now, it's been a while since I've been... well... anywhere. But I'm almost positive Walgreen's still sells them.

Hmmm, not that I've tried shopping for them elsewhere lately, but my experience of late has been JoAnn Fabrics is full of Gelly Rolls pens. That's where I restocked around last November.

Do they have the 10-packs that sell all the colors conveniently or is it a pick 'n' choose?

Pick'n'choose, with a lot to pick from.

Not a user of such but I've seen them.
If anything...Japanese good stores would definately have them...I _think_ I've seen them there if anything?

I still have my keroppi box full of gelly roll pens. A few of them don't work anymore, but I still kept them....

Remember what we used the pens for? Writing in that Sailor Moon notebook back in Sophomore/Junior year of high school....I still have that notebook...=)

You Know You Love Me...
Now that I have found this: Sakura Gelly Roll Shop

For the record, I also saw them in Barnes and Noble the other day but they were freaking expensive. Like $20 for 7 of them.

You can also find them on Ebay sometimes, in new and unopened packs. That's how I found them again lol. I LOVE THEM. I use them for writing down my recipes.
