What does purple ink say about you?
Posted 20 May 2009 - 21:06
Actually, i've stopped putting my student number in purple on essays, because it was too easy to tell which one was mine. Not so much a big deal in terms of the markers, who can usually recognise my writing anyway, but I'd rather the whole seminar group couldn't tell my grade from the colour ink I filled out the assessment form in. So now I use either blue or black, and then don't recognise my essays because I look for the purple one. That was a roundabout way of saying that I use purple so much that people can tell if a pen's mine if its ink is purple.
And for what it's worth, my current favourite purples are Waterman Violet and Diamine Damson.

Not sure what all it says about me other than I love and use purple inks.

Someone of good taste.

Probably NOT a lot more than when I use orange or green...........I suspect using brown probably says the "least."

What does purple ink say about me? That I have a job where I can get away with it, in this straight laced modern world.
That's why one of the nice perks of being a uni professor. No one blinks an eyebrow when they see a mid-40s hetero male using Bung-Box L'Amant in a fountain pen to write student progress reports.
Here in academia, not being eccentric is considered an eccentricity.
