Side sleepers: give your pillow reviews. | Ask MetaFilter. Recommendations for firm pillows that aren’t necessarily the too-warm memory foam sort.

Cool Tools – Trauma Shears. Strong enough to cut through a penny, these look great for crafters to have around.

I want the absolute best, most bombproof compact umbrella available. | Ask MetaFilter. This is a timely question for me, we managed to misplace all of our umbrellas this year.

The Best Pen | The Wirecutter. My favorite pen was given out as a freebie at a conference I attended earlier this year and I have no idea what sort it was other than it was branded Bic. None of the Wirecutter favorites are the one I love so my search goes on. This Wirecutter post shows that there are a surprising number websites dedicated to reviews of pens.

    Megan, I sell promotional products (including Bic pens), if you send me a photo of your beloved pen I may be able to find out the model name for you :)

    I know the feeling of the pen search. Maptote gives out pens with their wholesale orders. They are my favorite pens ever, and whenever I loose it I am so mad at myself I would buy them bulk if I could.

    That link for the (super cool) 3D jewelry has an extra y at the end, so it ends up going to an orange coat.

    The umbrella discussion was interesting to me, because I’d always assumed that if you want durability and ability to stand up in the wind, forget compacts. Too many joints. Good to know that’s not necessarily true, you just need to pay for it.

    That said, most of the time, I just wear a good raincoat, and if it’s windy, rain pants, too!

    My husband is an ICU nurse. I commandeered a pair of his trauma shears for use in the kitchen and the garden. They are amazing at opening that annoying plastic clamshell packaging.

    Denise – that! is genius.

    I came home to a package of Uniball JetStream pens. Valentine’s Day starts early around here.
