Sorry to flake on all the new readers this week. I have been absolutely swamped at work all month, and this week took the cake. Trust me, folks, an all-nighter on Sunday night is no way to start your week! (And they're a heck of a lot harder at age 49 than in your college years, I can tell you.)
I've been able to spend maybe an hour a day with my family this week, so the blog took a hit. Anyway . . .
This is going to be another crazy weekend, starting with a drive to the airport to drop off my wife and 8-year old daughter for a visit with her grandparents, then back to the grind to work all weekend and probably one more all-nighter between now and Wednesday. On Friday, I'll get to join my wife and daughter and finally relax a little with them.
Amid all this tumult, I took a few minutes from my work to show my wife — who seems mildly amused by my new-found fetish — the notes I had taken today in Private Reserve Copper Burst, which I just got on Wednesday. A few minutes later, I was ranting and raving about some stupid court rule making my life more difficult. When I was done letting off steam, my wife smiled at me and said, "At least you've got a nice pen."
And a nice wife, don't you think?
So, here's the Copper Burst and the rest of this week's order from Jet Pens:
I'm dying to open the Iroshizuku, but I'm so pressed for time, and want to savor it, so I'm saving it for later. Reviews of everything here (except the Lamy converter) lie ahead . . . as time allows.
