daidoji_gisei: Tarot Queen of Swords (Queen of Swords)

I'm doing this via my new tablet, so this will probably be quick. As I am not one of those people wedded to their cell phone, typing with only two fingers is slightly unnatural.

I was reading FPN over lunch and became irked at a young man who announced that he couldn't possibly date someone who used BIC pens because obviously their thoughts meant nothing to them. Having written most of my L5R fiction using a computer and cheap ballpoints I could not possibly see how this could be true. I posted a terse rebuttal which may have included the word "horse-hooey". I hope I don't get modded, but whatever.

In unrelated news, I have a new pen in the mail. I am hoping it arrives before my new Ink Drop samples do.

FPN has its share of idiot snobs. I pretty much don't read it anymore unless I need to look up pen or ink reviews.

Pretty much every fandom in existence has its share, methinks...

Yeah, because human beings are human beings. :]

Very tangentially related, Tim and I thought of you this weekend when we were visiting Hughenden Manor, a country pile that used to belong to Prime Minister Disraeli and is now filled with various trinkets from his life. One of them was an inkwell given to him by a friend as "a token of affection". Said token of affection was a foot long, made of gold, and used to belong to either a Pope or a Tzar (I forget which). I asked Tim when he was going to give me a token of affection, and he promptly offered to buy me some ink cartridges... anyway, it was an inkwell worthy of your ink collection! *grin*

BTW: is this the Edison pen? You must let us know how you like it!
