Looking forward to a good pen day! Reply My plan to celebrate fountain pen day is simple: Start off the day with a cup of coffee at my local Starbucks with my Oberon blue seas A5 nnotebook and my Pelikan M200 Cafe Creme to write a list of goals for the day, and some writing practice. I’ve picked up 20 Pilot Varsities from my local Staples and I plan on giving them to friends and family who have ever shown an interest in my fountain pens. As I head to class, I’ll have my Pelikan M600, Waterman 52 1/2v and Pilot Custom Heritage 92 tucked away in my Nock Lookout case, ready to write with some of my favorite inks! In between my classes, I plan on doodling away and practicing some calligraphy with my Waterman 52 1/2V and finishing my latest read, which is John Grisham’s “The Firm”. My bookmark of choice you may ask? My Fountain Pen Day bookmark will be my bookmark of choice! I’ve used it avidly since I picked it up at the DC Supershow this year! When I get home, I’ll have a fresh new bottle of Iroshizuku Kon-Peki, according to Amazon, to fill up my Pilot Custom 74 and get on with my day as I head to work at a print shop. As we fulfill orders for customers, we have a small area to write our names for quality checks as well as personalized messages or just saying “Thank for shopping with us!”. I’ll have my trust Custom 72 at my side to help sign my name and write that message! If anyone at any point asks to borrow a pen, be it for notes or something else, I’ll open up my Nock Co Brasstown. What’s in my Brasstown will be a bit different than my usual carry: Pilot Varisties, Pilot Metros and a few Gel and ball points (everyone is entitled to a choice!) and tell them to pick a pen that they’d like to use. At the end of the day, I’ll finish up by giving all of the pens that have run dry over the week a thorough cleaning, and polish them up before putting them back into my display case until they re-enter my weekly rotation. I’ll hang up my Pelikan shirt, that I made for this year’s Pelikan hub, after wearing it all day. Lastly, I’ll pull out a good old fashion dip pen, and write a love letter to my sweet, and set it on her pillow to find just before she goes to bed.
