Sometimes, I want to play with my pens, inks, and papers, but can think of nothing to write.
The first step is to write the name of the ink and the name of the pen (see above). I just noticed that each ink is from a different manufacturer – nice.
Apparently, the last resort is to write things that I overhear from the television (see below).
It was actually quite a bit of fun – watching and scribbling, changing pens and writing a bit more. I love the way the entire sheet of paper looks – each color is pretty amazing on its own, yes?
Let’s take a closer look . . .
Above – DeAtramentis Alexander Hamilton. I love this purple. It’s so rich and deep in color – nice saturation. I don’t see this ink discussed much on the various forums, but I think this is a purple that could be used anywhere. (more on that another day)
Below – Private Reserve Spearmint. One of my favorite green inks. It looks a bit dark here to my eye, but it is usually quite cheery.
Do you have a guess as to which show I was watching at the time?
Below – Montblanc Hitchcock. A gorgeous blood red ink if I ever did see one. Some really pretty shading in there, too. I have to confess, I have a quite a lot of this in my cabinet. Shall I keep it forever? Use it as if I’ll never run out? Or maybe even sell some?
Below – Noodler’s Habanero. A favorite. That shading. The brightness of the color. Need I say more? Mm..wait, I already did right here.
By the way, the above quote is the one that seems like the one that would tell the secret of what I was watching. Have you guessed it yet?
Above – Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun. I wonder if I only could have one ink, if this would be it. Check out my big review here. It is crazy CrAzY to think that I, lover of bright and beautiful colors, would be so taken with a gray ink, but there you go.
Above – Diamine Majestic Blue. Easy to see why it’s one of my favorites, yes? So pretty.
And, so, there we have it – six pretty colors. All so different from one another and yet all so wonderful.
Which show was I watching? Downton Abbey, of course! Have you seen it? Highly recommended.
I was sitting right next to you as you wrote, and I couldn't remember what show it was! I might have to try that Majestic Blue next… wow.
I'm so glad you named the show – a couple of quotes sounded familiar, especially the one about using the food paid for by the army, but I didn't recognize it right away. Downton Abbey is the best – I love it! Thanks for the ink review, too. I like the Habanero, nice shading and not too bright.
I really love the effect of the Waterman Vintage Semi-Flex!
I do the SAME THING! And I often wonder about (slightly morbid) things like if I were murdered or otherwise in a police investigation, would they think these words had some particular meaning? Let's hope not!
hahah, Jess, thank you for stopping by and confirming that I'm not the only weirdo! 🙂
