    Interdimensional, at the moment. At least there's Wi-Fi.

    I'm fond of pens, I read and write when I can get around to it, and my train of thought has derailed so many times that the UTA has tried to decommission it, but that's not how abstract supertrains of death work.

    Anyways.

    (insert interests here)

    Also, I'm really good at not doing the things I want to do.

  1. @Kasimir Thanks for the heads up! I'll be keeping an extra-close eye on my JoWo nibs, then.
  2. I can handle an art style change between seasons. I might not like it, but I can deal. But in the split second I thought they changed the cast I almost flipped a table. :mellow: 

  3. I mean, I just got (and absolutely love) a Kaweco Sport, so I'm not entirely sure I know what I'm talking about either. Thank goodness I haven't. I'm terrified of breaking something and doing so voids the warranty (understandably, if annoyingly). Good to know, thanks. (I keep hearing that Kyoto's inks are really dry, but that's been the opposite of my experience. I guess this F-C's just really, really wet?) Glad to hear it! (At this point I'm just using parentheses for completeness' sake...)
  4. Finally, I'm a Voidbringer!

    Fear me...I guess? I don't know. You do you.

      Are you in the same ward or something?

      Not even in the same church! Just some banter between a couple old-timers. ;)

      Well we'd welcome you back to full activity anytime.

  5. I think I audibly gasped when I heard there was a matching 91. Unfortunately, the same review that made me aware of it also emphasized its small size, so... I started with one fill each of Ku-jaku and Edelstein Moonstone before settling on Tsuki-yo, which I've used for the last few fills. It's not so much a hassle to clean, actually--you just cycle the vacuum filler until it runs clear, which is easy enough. The hassle is waiting for it to dry out. If my one bottle is anything to go by, Kyoto TAG makes a dang good ink. I got Moegiiro to go with my F-C, but Aonibi and Hisoku look lovely as well. I foresee more bottles in my future. Heard good things about Taccia. How is it?
  6. One should never have to be aware of their own uvula.

  7. It's an interesting thing, you know, finally being able to relate to a meme. For the longest time, I rolled my eyes at all the author jokes about "ah yes, sweet, sweet emotional turmoil" but then one day a scene ripe with anguish literally just popped into my brain as I was getting into bed. It was a eureka moment to the point where I literally went back outside, got back on the computer, and wrote it out then and there.

    Man, I can't wait to use it. :D 

  8. It's so prettyyyyy! I'm that guy who's interested in inks 'cause he likes the name, and I love the moon, so I'm glad Moonlight lives up to its name! It really is one of the best I have. It's divine in the 823, too.
  9. If I have to listen to Marty Robbins sing about the West Texas town of El Paso one more time I'm gonna burn the place to the ground.

      The most important thing about El Paso is that there are a lot of overpasses, and when I moved from AZ to LA with my pug in the front seat, he'd duck every time we drove under an overpass, and that poser Marty Robbins probably doesn't even sing about it once. 

  10. I'll see what I can throw together, but in the meantime I used these inks with the previous pens respectively: Birmingham Panther Blue, Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo, J. Herbin Poussière de Lune, Platinum Aqua Emerald, and J. Herbin Rouille d'Ancre!
  11. I KNOW RIGHT?!
  12. So this weekend is General Conference for us Latter-day Saints, and one of the many reasons I love it is the opportunity to use my pens to take notes! There are five sessions, so I've used five pens: a Pelikan M120, Pilot Custom 823, LAMY 2000, Platinum 3776, and Sailor 1911. Feels good to actually use these things instead of just letting them sit in a drawer and collect dust, you know?
  13. On one hand, I absolutely love sharing music I love with everyone around me. It's like sharing a piece of your soul! On the other hand, I'm absolutely terrified, because it's like sharing a piece of your soul.

    Screw you, psychology.

      I can relate very strongly to this statement.

      Also I listen to a really storming weird variety of musicals, so that makes it weird as well.

      Yeah, I can handle people hearing my taste in rock, but there's a decent helping of MLP and anime songs in rotation and I would actually die if those songs came on while I was DJing. :P 

  14. Me, starting Re:Zero: What's so great about Rem? I mean I like her well enough, but... Me, eleven episodes later: ...oh.
  15. Don't be! I'm excited too! ETA: Yooooo that was an awesome first day! Such awesome talks! Sad to see the Primary General Presidency go, though. ETA again: I totally didn't cry through both opening songs this morning. Nope. Don't know what you're talking about.
