Just In Case You Wondered What Happened08/22/2013
Yep, I’ve been scarce at Inkophile as well as on Twitter and Google+, but I’ve got a great excuse. No my dog didn’t eat my work! It’s worse. My 12-year-old computer finally told me to find a new mate. Heck, most marriages don’t last that long. So I’ve been working on a borrowed laptop for a few minutes each day – not enough to write a real post but enough to get off a quick one before I go back to researching budget laptops. Wish me luck!
As for fountain pens, I did a major cleaning two days ago and reduced my rotation to one lonely Pelikan M215 stub nib and Sailor Sky High ink. It feels really strange to have only one choice, although that is hardly a choice. One of the Platinum pens will get a fill once a single ink emerges as the next one to use. It’s fun to flip through my ink book or look at the bottles on the shelf for a stand out. It is all too easy to indulge in blue. There are so many nice ones, soothing, and non-offensive. Sky High will do for that color. Ink #2 will be teal, turquoise, brown, burgundy or purple. Yes, an injection of color will be just the thing to close out the summer.
See ya when I get my new laptop up and running!
