The highlights of my day!

I have noticed that highlighters are becoming more modern.
I have some fairly interesting highlighters at work.



This first one is three in one. It is a triangle of highlights!

Yellow...


Green...


Hot pink.



This second one is my favorite.

It clicks like a ballpoint pen.



This third one has a chamber on the end that rotates to uncover...

little post it tags.



Now, this is not considered a highlighter, but it is a sharpie marker. Not only one, but...

two!
Fine point on one end and extra fine point on the other end!

Very clever, don't you think?
Anyone else have a cool highlighter?

Now, was I the highlight of your day! ;)

Hi Lee Ann. Number 2 is my fave too. Number three is a perversion of the concept.

I wish my job had perks.

Jason said...

With the coming rain, and me having to get out and work in it, I'd definately say yes.

Becky said...

I like the clicky highlighter, nice and convenient! I had the one with post-its in it on my desk, when I did work, lol

coach said...

Osbasso said...

Good Lord, I love office supplies! You are the highlight of my life! (is that a little overboard?)

The Husband said...

they sure are getting clever with hi-liters and markers. next thing you know they will have IPOD's built into them.

MyUtopia said...

Sweet, I am a total geek about that stuff!

hotboy said...

So that's what a highlighter is! What a good idea! I thought kids asking me if I had one to lend were taking the michael. So it's not a mascara thing after all! Learn something every day, eh! Hotboy

Ellen said...

Sweetie, you are the highlight of everyones day!

Otis said...

So...recapping the highlights of today's post...

I had a cool one but lost it. It had a stylus for the pda and a highlighter too.

Alas it's gone now.

Violet said...

i have to admit that my favorite department in any store is the office supplies aisle. also, this is prime "office supply stock-up" time, with all the back-to-school stuff on sale... makes me all giddy and shtuff.

Tumbleweed said...

You're just so silly!!

Polyman2 said...

Nobody touches my highlighters-
I'm very possessive.
I like the good old ones in yellow.

Same to you Os.

Carl ~ You might be onto something Carl!

Myutopia ~ Oh, that is great! You are not the only one!

Tumble ~ I know, can't help it!

Poly ~ I am the same way, very possessive about my highlighter.
I do like the yellow ones the best too.

Rob ~ Hey that is a great idea!

ticharu said...

I like the 2 sided caligraphy pens.

You can get great pens at Micheals, but I'm too cool to go there on my own of course, looking for pens... jeese!

Have you ever heard 'Take Stuff From Work' by King Missile???

Lee Ann said...

Tich ~ I do caligraphy. It has been a while, but I was just thinking of picking it up again very soon.

jamwall said...

i dunno, the first highlighter is incredibly awesome. i would use it on my nipples.

Neo said...

Lee Ann - Hey what gives? No HNT?

*sniffle*

- Neo

jiggs said...

you are the mistress of office supplies!

Metalchick said...

Hi Lee Ann,
I don't have any cool highlighters, but I do have Sharpie markers in every color. Have you seen those? They're great! I even have the silver sharpie, which is the coolest. The best thing about them is when you burn CD's and want to decorate them in a cool way.

Lee Ann said...

Jams ~ Ok Jams, I want to help with that!

Neo ~ No more! ;)

Baby Dragon ~ They might make your tongue yellow! Of course you can come swim in my moat. Anytime baby.

Lee Ann said...

Jiggs ~ Thank you so much!

Metalchick ~ Oh, I have seen those. I like the commercial where they use them to touch up the paint on the cars they run into!

Henri Banks said...

wow that triangle thing looks funny is it practical to write with ,because the form is so unusual.My dear Lee Ann Have a nice weekend ;-)

Lee Ann said...

Henri ~ If you had to do a lot of writing with the triangle, it would not be easy. But to highlight a sentence or a word is not hard. It is different, isn't it!
Have a great weekend Henri.

Spinning Girl said...

Lee Ann said...

SG ~ I knew you would like the highlighters. The clicky ones are the best!
