I've been grading papers so I brought a few with me to my local coffee shop.
A maroon aero "51" with Noodler's black, a Pel 150M with Cross black, a Pel 800 with blue Parker quink, a Waterman Carene with black quink, and a golden striped Parker vacumatic with waterman black. I hate how much time it takes to grade papers, but I love all the writing I get to do during midterms!

Today, in the back pocket of my nasty Levis has been a Parker Vector Sylvester the Cat pen, filled with Noodlers Eternal Blue. Sylvester didn't complain much but wow! Sitting down and forgetting Sylvester was in there was a HUGE mistake. :angry:

I was going to make a cheeky (pun intended) remark about being in the backpocket of your nasty Levis, but I think I'll refrain :lol: I'm sure Sylvester thought it was all worth it. :lol: (Hope he's ok though :unsure: )


For me, today I'm showing love to my Parker Frontier. Stainless steel capped, black barreled, medium nibbed (which is normally too broad for me, but somehow this one is not as broad as I expected) and filled with Waterman Blue Black, just to get it going.

Sorry for the deviation. Back on topic,

Papermate... I don't know anything else about it other than the W. Germany it has written on the cap.

I have four pens in circulation, today.

1. VP (fine nib) with Waterman Havana

2. Esterbrook J (9556 nib) with Levenger Cardinal Red

3. Parker Vector (Ang-stubbed nib) with Noodler's Apache Sunset

4. Pelikan M200 (14k oblique medium nib) with Private Reserve's Sherwood Green


For some reason, I really felt like using that Pelikan, today. It's been "on leave" for a while, as that blasted oblique nib was proving too much for me. But it's kinda like bleu cheese; sometime's it repels me, and sometimes I absolutely jones for it. I decirculated (that's not actually a word, is it?) my latest, a Sheaffer Royal Selangor Bamboo (which I adore, but it's a bit of an ink guzzler), to ink up the Pelikan.

Thanks! That's my boy! Kenneth turned 2 on Feb. 4th. The quilt he got for Christmas - my wife's aunt made it for him. The stuffed Golden Lab is taller than he is - Christmas present from his granny. He is such a blessing (most of the time anyhow ;) ).

Today (and pretty much every day) I'm using my MB 149 w/B nib filled with MB blue-Black ink.

I occasionally use a Monteverde Invincia w/M nib, filled with PR Midnight Blues ink, but I mostly use that pen on the weekends when I'm traveling around.

Hi T,

Cool shades Sasha!
My little one calls her sunglasses, "sunshiny glasses". :lol:

Hi SP,
Kenneth looks very cute too.
My little one is two. What a fun age.
She doesn't have a quilt, but the refrain of "lello (yellow) blankie, lello blankie!" is often heard here.

Back on topic -
After struggling with the packing for the good part of the morning, i extricated an older 146 with a monotone gold nib. A nice writer in very good shape.

Cute avatar, T and Southpaw!


In my pocket: I think my Balium Core. It's always in my pocket and it's always filled with PR Shoreline Gold.

1st -- I guess I've got to put an avitar of my kids up, the rest of you SP and T you both have great avitars. 2 is a great age (at times). I'm about 5 months away from seeing how it is for my son, my daughter didn't really have a terrible 2's, she is having a terrible 3.5's...some of the time. The rest of the time she is sweet as apple pie

now on topic
Lamy 2000 (ef) -- Legal lapis
Wality 52 (f) -- just ran out of Eternal brown

(now I know why I always carry 2 pens)

Today and probably for the next couple of weeks...

1) Conway Stewart #76 with Waterman Violet
2) Conway Stewart 85L with Waterman Black
3) Parker Senior Duofold with PR Lake Placid Blue
4) Montblanc Starwalker ballpoint (broad black refill if you're bothered)

They are listed in order of preference (in use) so I will use the CS#76 for most notes, sign letters with the CS85L make notes in my work journal with the Parker and use the MB for signing carbon paper orders/delviery notes that are still in use.

Hey at least I get to play around with different pens every day...
