It has arrived! J Herbin's Stormy Grey just popped into my email box as I was working; a delightful surprise from Goulet's mailing service. I don't think I've ever been so excited about an ink.

Feel like a total nerd  :blush:

Yep, I was in the middle of class when I got the email.  Made a quick trip to Goulet's site to snag myself a bottle.  I really can't wait for this one to get here!


So many inks, so little time...

I had to pull my shopping cart over in the middle of IKEA and order this ink on my phone as soon as I got the email from Goulet.  Feel like a total nerd as well.

I don't get it. Sorry, and by all means, no harm meant... but... being so excited about an ink... why should anybody here ever feel like a total nerd?

I was in the middle of my morning shave when I saw the email pop up from the Goulets on my iPhone.

 

Carefully but hastily I finished my task at hand and then jumped on the computer to claim my bottle.

 

A chat later with Margaret at Goulet, and I learned that it was gone in a couple of hours by lunch time.

 

Now the nerdy "F5-refresh" cycle starts on my browser to track the shipment.

 

This is definitely going to be a super exciting ink.

I ordered 2 bottles (plus some Pilot Yama-Guri) and they are already on their way! I can't wait to try the Herbin. How about if we call ourselves the "Goulet Geeks"?

Yup, I can't wait to start peeling off that ten meters of sealing wrap!

 

There's a reason why the Goulets are among the top eRetailers; given the choice of checking in to my flight and ordering Stormy Gray, you can guess what I prioritized :)
