Canadian In South Korea

Recommended Posts

HI.

 

I am a school teacher working and living in South Korea. I have three pens: a TWSBI 580, Pelican M800, an artisan turned deer-horn IPN and a Shaefer Calligraphy pen from the set I got when I was 13 years old.

 

I started to use fountain pens regularly in University where I would buy $1 fountain pens in lots of five since one or two in every five would work.

 

Nowadays, I usually use my TWSBI to go to work and the Pelican at home. I like that Pelican so much that I rarely take it out since I often misplace sunglasses and fountain pens. Also the cleaning ladies in Korean Universities are relentless about pocketing anything left behind....sunglasses, coffee tumblers, even my class logs...you can't leave anything behind. I've lost two Lamys, a Pelicano and another cheaper Pelican to these ladies. ... anyway they are fine people, you just hvae to be careful when leaving the room....if they clean it, anything not bolted down goes.

 

So looking forward to using this forum.

 

Colin

Welcome !

 

I get it. They are fine people, except for the stealing.

Welcome to FPN! Sorry to hear that anything left behind is lost, and that will certainly shape your pen acquisition strategy!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
