would love to try some!

If you're really nice AND you've never tried Iroshizuku Kon-peki, I *might* be convinced to let you fill up your pen with that too, but only for first time Kon-peki users!

I'm falling a bit out of love with Noodler's Navy - does anyone want a sample? Bring a pen to fill or a vial to put it into, and I'll let you take some with you.

Remember - it's on the 8th floor, just to the left of the elevators, room 801.

Do we need to bring anything? Coffee mug, tea, sugar, milk, ect? Are we each bringing our own lunch?
Do we need to set up the room before hand?

If you want anything to eat or drink, you have to bring your own EVERYTHING, which is the downside of having the meet in a non-food place. I have a kettle, but that's all I can offer.

I'm probably going to go somewhere beforehand and grab some food to bring back. the room doesn't need setting up, though if we don't like the configuration, I guess we could move the chairs around or something.

With 9 people, we could totally fit in Carol's Cheesecake cafe. I'm just sayin'. :P

Are you still up for arranging a TR off-white group buy?
thanks!

I may or may not be able to make it for Nov.. I also have cream TR paper, and would be interested in a group buy of the white paper. If there are two more people (in additiona to Jay and I) interested I could even orgranize the group buy - I orgranized the cream paper group buy so I have all the accounts setup for ordering and shipping.

Me too, me too!

I finally got a reply from the US subsidiary, and they most generously offered to send me a minimum shipment of 30 tons, straight from Japan. I think my wife might have some input on that one...

30 tons, that'd be a full load for a tractor trailer. Now, that's alot of paper!

At the moment I'm thinking January, after the holidays.
