    What do you mean by "it used to click...?"

    Are you saying that it will not stay in the pen and falls out?

    No, it used to click like a button. That's the best way I can describe it. It's still attached, it's just doesn't do anything and didn't have the same pressure as it did when I first got it.

    That sounds more like a problem with the pen itself, not the nib...

    Try taking the nib out and banging the end of the pen, not hard, against a table and see if any plastic bits fall out...it could be something jamming it...if you replace the nib in the pen and it still doesn't work, then you need a new pen, which are sadly pretty pricey :/

    :sigh: I think you may be right. I tried what you suggested and it didn't work. I may need to get a new pen altogether. Just contacted my mum's friend about it. He knows more than I do.

    Up until I finally saw what he looks like, all this time, I thought Steve Tyrell was black. :o

    Every time I see that pic from The Great Santa Claus Switch on the forum's MC Radio widget, I keep thinking I'm seeing Ernie's, because those elves look like Ernie.

    We got bottles of soda and I asked my dad if they were smaller than usual cause they looked smaller.

    Turns out, he bought the normal 16.9 oz bottles and I'm just used to the 20 oz bottles they sell at school :o

    Don't be duped though, a LOT of things keep getting smaller and smaller... "they" say it's to "help keep the price down", or otherwise, the same as it was before when it was bigger.

    They're still just screwing you over either way.

    Ugh, yes, everything is getting smaller. Ice cream containers, beverage containers, pretty much anything found in a container at a grocery store is getting smaller, yet same prices are still being charged, and half the time no one even notices the difference.

    One store around here even started making their cakes a few inches smaller and is still charging the same for them.

    McDonald's insultingly small medium fries...everything at Sonic (their food is gross anyway)

    Wendy's still seems like the only fast food place that hasn't shrunk anything...

    I'd argue the sentiment about Sonic, but ehh, I'm not in the mood.

    Non-fast food restaurants are even worse... it's all the same menus, for the most part, but the prices DO ever-so continuously... I can remember a time when a dinner for three was like maybe around $32 or so, but nowadays, it's rarely under $50.

    The one where I live is gross :p

    But since I live out in the middle of nowhere, we have a lot of privately owned, country type restaurants. This one diner place we go to gives you HUGE portions and are relatively cheap. Chicken fingers are about 6 there when I've seen them upwards of 9 dollars at places

    I bumped an old thread without knowing it.

    I ran around the house today trying to prepare breakfast thinking that I had to leave for church soon, only to find out that it was 1:30 AM on a Thursday morning. :oops:

    Beats me...I half wonder if I randomly woke up and imagined turning off my alarm or something. :p

    I spilled yogurt on my shirt this morning because I wasn't paying attention. Ugh. Nothing to make you feel more like a slob than seeing food all over your shirt.

    Not today, but I just now realized that I didn't even use my Easter Snowth avatar this year. :o

    My parents consider the topic of my latest post in the "What Made you Smile Today" thread to be this, heh heh. :laugh:

    I just wasted two CD-Rs, because I didn't realize I didn't specify that I was burning an audio CD, not a data CD. :o
