every day it is raining.
i wanted to go hiking but going to indian buffet
is seeming more likely. the buffet is by the market
where we buy our groceries (sunflower); i always think it'd
be lovely to get groceries and go to the buffet and
maybe see a movie at 'chez artiste', also in the same complex,
but so far we've only gotten groceries.
yesterday i went to cherry creek shopping mall
cause i wanted to look at this shop called
paradise pen. it was scary in there. i was imagining like...
a paradise of pens with many pens and some nice ones and all
sorts of paper and stationary but it was a small room with pens
behind glass and one dude working there in a suit. i shld
have known better cause that same mall
has tiffany's and other stuff like that in it. i left and had a
cup of soup at whole foods. i got some ink at meininger's; noodlers
violet, pelikan violet and shaeffer violet. i guess i like violet.
i also got a miquelrius notebook that has 300 pages in it. 300! it
is so huge, a brick. now we're doing laundry, lazing, cat napping.

i love noodlers black ink. it's so strong compared to others. although i did go an buy some aurora black cartridges the other day. i'd heard good things about it and wanted to try it and see how it fares to the noodlers. that's a shame about the pen store. the place where i get my ink downtown is kinda like that, but it's mostly a cigar shop. there are display cases of pens and inks and such and then there's a whole other room twice as large used for the cigars and set up with the humidifier system and all that. i've heard good things about the pelikan ink. i still want to try and get a different fountain pen. maybe a pilot or lamy one.

it was just too fancy. i like to look at the fancy pens at the art supply shop, but paradise pen was too chic or something. i cldn't even look at anything with that guy staring at me from behind his little counter. is the noodlers black you like the one called bulletproof? the place i got ink also has lamy ink, waterman, j herbin and private reserve. i'm really obsessed right now; it is as bad as bylthe or lolita.

i think i just have the regular black one. the bulletproof is an extreme permanent ink they make. it only comes in black i think. despite choking on cigar smoke every time i visit the shop for pen stuffs i do like it. they have really fancy expensive pens and such and there's the guy behind the counter, usually with a cigar in his mouth, but the people there are really friendly. they know it's a bit intimidating, so they make sure to make people feel welcome there.

for a while i was totally obsessed as well. i was reading up on pens and ink and even the history of dip pens, quills, etc... for several months last year. though i had to realize i don't have the money to spend on all the stuff i'd like in regards to pens and such.
sometimes i'll browse this site and be very tempted to buy a few things.

i hate going into stores where i have to ask to touch something that is behind glass. it makes me so nervous. once i decided to buy a silver beaded choker from tiffany's and i was so scared to try it on that after about 10 times of me trying to get the clasp right, the salesman had to do it. then i made him wrap it up for me in a gift box, with ribbon. then i asked him to please show me how to tie the tiffany bow. it seems like once i get nervous i just push it farther and farther into ridiculousland.

if i bought a fountain pen, is there a kind i could get that i could use with the j herbin bottles i own? i think i have 3 or 4. i like to use brown, amber, violet or sometimes green.

that is a hefty notebook.

i'm awfully jealous of the rain. it's been in the 90s still with no rain anywhere.

sorry for the long reply. we are at the v's house but they aren't here. r is busy and a is sleeping. hellllllloooooooo gooooooodddbyyyye there is a strange animal sound.

I always want to go for indian food and watch a movie at chez artiste too when I am at sunflower shopping, but I never have either.
