:lol:  I think this sort of thing every time someone asks how to date some pen or other. :D

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

 On mention of being smitten with the perfect page:

(Too bad I can't bloody draw, much less distil the imagery in my mind down to skeleton stick figure representations of the key elements while preserving their essential topology.)

I'd say you're doing a pretty good job!  Fantastic stick(ish) figures in both.  And the romance novel cover drawing is hilarious!  I suspect I'm missing something obvious about the barber drawings, but I think they're great.  (OK, admittedly, not great like Andrew's or Tas's, but great for us folk who can't draw. :D )

Well, while the former wasn't properly a stickman...

Yes, well, close enough.  No idea what we call our stick-ish drawings, so we'll just be inclusive an keep them all. :D

here, prompted by "Would like help identifying a Onoto pen", I know, way too literal, but...

:lol:definitely don't want a cop trying to identify my fountain pens! :D  And there's no such thing as too literal (see next)...

Thanks! When I saw the thread title, that it:

  • has seven syllables;
  • ended with the word ‘again‘ (and which, in my mind, is where the emphasis would be if the question was asked aloud); and
  • has the word ‘time’ in it,

somehow made my mind take just a jump to the left and think, ”Let's do the time warp again!” and then the talk of baldness in conjunction with long hair just cemented the image of the Riff Raff character in my head.

Hah! I also thought of a dutiful page when I read that!!!

 

Then I thought of doodling something and adding it to THAT discussion. Then I thought that maybe I should do it to every discussion whose title lends itself to misinterpretation. Then I thought that that's how I tend to get banned from places...

:D Isn't it fun how the mind makes these "jumps to the left"?  The human brain is a magnificent thing!  Thanks for sharing the route your brain took from A to B.  :)

Yes! Yes! and Yes!  :D  Some people just have no sense of humor. :rolleyes:

Or it could have been like this:

but then it wouldn't have been as much fun. ;)

 

Aside: I only just realised yellow ink is very useful when it comes to drawing! And there I was, fretting only a few days ago over why I bothered buying not just one but two 50ml bottles of Robert Oster Yellow Sunset for A$5 apiece…

Bah!  I had figured out the geographic arrangement, but I didn't realize the numbers were based on international calling codes!  (PS: My research says +7 is Russia.)

:)  Yes, yellow ink is primarily for drawing - at least in my opinion.  Glad you've found a use for your bottles of yellow ink. :D

Well, that was the question (or puzzle) of which I made specific mention, when talking about what and how I would send. The somewhat geographical placement of individual vials was just so that it gave me a sense of order while packing them.

Oh, you're right! Silly me, I was searching for 7[0-9], but of course 7* as a shell wildcard would mean 7.*, and I never thought to look for that in the list. My mistake.
