First!

Received my first bottle of Noodler’s ink today! It’s Noodler’s Navy, one of the Ink Drop colors. This should be interesting…

I like the value, the bottle is 3oz, which is bigger than the Diamine. I may have to try this famous x-feather one day, too, just to see what the hubbub is about…

Wow, my coworker saw me with my pen and paper, and he asked what it was. I mentioned it was just some notes, and he said, “Wow! That seems so old fashioned. Nobody writes by hand anymore. Kids today!”

Wow, sad! And I’ve actually known people who claimed they had no paper at home. NONE. How do they buy groceries??

TWSBI Vac700, fine nib vs broad.

… you start picking out fountain pen brands in movies.  I had no idea Lex Luthor had a Pelikan M800 in “Superman Returns”.  Until now.

Bwahahahaha. I fully sympathize.  You should have heard me while I was watching the BBC Sherlock season 1 episode “The Great Game.” I was actually yelling at the tv that you can’t tell from looking what kind of fountain pen was used. Luckily, my spouse is accustomed to me and my obsessions so he didn’t bat an eyelash. 

I would have thought that Lex Luthor would go for a Montblanc 149 or something.

Haha, you would think that! You know, he’s gotta save his money to help out with his world domination schemes!

Decided to get a broad nib for my Vac 700!  I should have it late next week, and I can do a comparison of the two sizes.  This fine is SUPER fine, and I don’t have a broad nib in my collection yet.  I have tons of mediums, and a bunch of italics, so my Vac 700 is apparently going to be the “I don’t have this kind of nib yet” pen.  XD

Avast, me hearties!  Feast yer eyes on these eyes on these beauties.  They be the pens o’ the day!  International Talk Like a Pirate Day, that is.  These fine scribblers have stood me well, and the newest instrument makes use of a fine kind of gadgetry.  The Vac700 sucks up ink with a quickness!  Using the special jug (the vac 20) lets the scribbler fill up to the brim, and it’s mighty fun t’use.  I recommend it to sailors and land lubbers alike!

Coming soon to my house!  I got a fine nib, because I don’t have any pens with a fine nib, and I thought I should branch out.  I’ve got tons of italics and a few mediums, and one TINY EXTRAFINE that I don’t particularly like…
Can’t wait!  I bought the vac ink bottle, too!  My first ink bottle just for the sake of having an ink bottle!  Haha, I’m nuts, I know.


I’m unclear why that would be considered nuts? It seems perfectly rational to me… ;-)
(I can’t wait to hear what you think of the pen + bottle combination. I admit I’m curious.)

Lol!  I’ve managed to convince myself that since ink already comes in bottles, it’s extravagant to buy an ink bottle.  :p. But fountain pens can be seen as extravagant anyway so who cares?  XD I’m excited, I’ll have to give a full report once they come.
