    No kidding. I remember one of these being passed around among snickering classmates... in 1970.

  5. Someone gave me a pen with a bare-chested guy on it. He loses his briefs when the heat from one's fingers warms the, ahem, barrel. (There was no way to say that without innuendo. LOLOL)

    I want the Logitech digital pen for myself!!

    Hi!

    Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I got my books from the Hallowe'en contest. Between mail to Canada and our seeming inability to walk half a block to get the mail, it took some time.

    I'm looking forward to settling in with them over the holiday!

    Thanks again,

    Garnigal

    My favorite fountain pen is the Lamy Safari. They write very smoothly, fit nicely in my hand, and go for under $30.

    I bought a clear one (you can see all the innards) on sale at fountainpenhospital.com. It was $21. They are now sending me catalogs and calendars filled with multi-thousand dollar pens. I have to laugh.

    I did splurge and buy some Noodler's Ink when I bought my pen, and I'm glad I did. It comes in lovely and unusual colors. Nightshade is a purplish black, and I also got Red-Black, wonderful for mystery stories. They are perfectly readable, just a bit different. Some of the colors are designed to be a solid with a contrasting border color. Others are recreations of Civil War and other historical inks.

    Must not just randomly buy ink! Must use up inks already own!
