Post-it Notes on Steroids

Aab

As a long-time aficionado of office supplies, I feel qualified to review this wonderful new (to me, at least) product.

"Yo joe, how come you're always going on about other stuff that we know full well you know less than nothing about?"

Never mind.

I'll talk to you individually after I'm done here.

Now, where was it?

Zits, yeah, we were talking about pimples.

Right?

Wrong?

Post-its? 

Oh, OK, my bad, let's get to it.

These über-Post-its measure 4" x 4" and are a different kettle of fish entirely from others I've used, namely their Lilliputian (it can be capitalized or not, I looked it up, don't distract me) 1.5" x 2", 2" x 3", and 3" x 3" brethren.

These have an entirely different heft and presence under your pencil or pen or Sharpie.

Me, I'm combining them with an ultra-fine point retractable Sharpie

Ccc
for note heaven on Earth.

How are those retractable Sharpies, by the way? They don't dry out more quickly than the capped variety? I love the convenience of retractability, but a dried-out favorite pen is sheer heartbreak.

Well, it's annoying, anyway.

Flautist, I was even more vexed than you that I'd omitted the dimensions: the whole point of the "Post-it Notes on Steroids" headline was that they are 4" x 4".

I will now go back and alter the original post to include their size, so look quick because the original is about to disappear down the memory hole.

And the lines were the second thing I liked, because I'm now using these notes as an aide-mémoire re: what's upcoming each day on boj. There are just enough lines on them for my eight daily posts and their working titles.

I was vexed by the fact that nowhere in the post does it mention the dimensions of the featured Post-its. (Smaller ones, but not these.) It turns out they're 4" x 4" which is perfect. But, but, they have lines! I don't need some line pushing me around and ordering me to write this high or that straight. And the 4" x 6" lineless ones are too big. I wonder how much it would cost them to leave the lines off the damn things?
