I'd have to say don't buy me paper.....I AM picky about it.  However, the
idea of a gift certificate to.....oh my gosh, the perfect place in this
area, Kevin, would be Pearl.  In artist's terms it is a Mecca!  I think any
scribe in this area would flip if you gave them that!  Seriously!  It is a
thoughtful gift, and that way they can get just what they need!  Kudos for
that suggestion, 'C'!  ;)
