Wet Ink

So I was writing in the 'ol journal this afternoon and spilled some condensation from my glass on the paper. It gave me the idea of testing how the ink of different pens stick to the paper when wet. I remembered in the trash there was a balled up piece of paper that I used the other day to see how different pens I use wrote. It was after reading LFP’s different opinions on pens what not. When journaling I like to use pens that flow across the paper and write fairly evenly. I tend to write very small and use almost exclusively either the Jotter or my Uni Ball Vision Elite. I am willing to invest in a nice fountain pen that doesn’t write so boldly but have yet to find one. Last year I picked up the disposable pilot fountain pens at staples but never really used them. They write so damn boldly. I write with either a .5MM or something similar. As much as I love my Jotter, my hand can become sweaty and likes to slide down the pen. But when that happens it’s usually time to give my hand a quick break anyways. I guess my somewhat lack of pen knowledge led to my preference of the typewriter. But although I’m aware of what I’m getting myself into here ($$$) and being an office supply geek LPF brought up an interest I avoided since high school. My stepfather owns a business selling promotional products. He brought my pen addiction to a full time high when I was a kid. But fountain pens are a whole new world for me. Opinions??

Home on the way

On that note...

So last night Allie and I decided to move the bed to make more room. Room for what you might ask, well with school and everything what could be better than a desk of course! Finally, *sigh* Before the bed was in the middle of the room and there wasn't much space for anything. Now I will be able to write next to the window as well instead of looking at a blank wall. I ordered a L shaped corner desk, I can't wait till it arrives. As you might remember, the selectric on a tray table only lasts for so long before you realize how nice a desk would be. Luckily there is room now!
