I'm praying for a shiny Safari. Not to be rude, but I really dislike matte Safaris.
And it's funny -- I prefer the matte colors over the shiny ones. I have tried to make myself like the shiny colors well enough to get a second Safari and have not yet talked myself into it (when I decided I really did want one, I thought about getting one of the pink ones (not coral -- the actual pink from a couple of years before). Only when I saw them for real I was very unenamored of the color. But the Dark Lilac? Oh absolutely.... Of course the black nib and black clip helped....
But that's the great thing about this little hobby. Flippy, you can have all the shiny barrel Safaris your little heart desires (assuming that you aren't blowing the college funds or anything of course), so I don't have to buy ANY of them!
