Oh, and KWZ inks...   Interested in Mandarin (#82 in the picture), IG Green #3 (#76 in the picture), Honey, and Grey Plum. Will most likely get Mandarin and Grey Plum for next month's ink. Looked at all of the IG Blues offered, and they were all too enticing, so I decided to give up on those. After Kobe #51, would I really need any other BBs (the answer would still be "probably", but with a bit more hesitation than before). Green Gold 2, Grapefruit, and IG...
That's just lovely :)
To me it is right along the line of a "middle-of-the-road" purple, maybe a tinge towards the red side (rather than blue), but not enough to be adequately interesting/complex. Could have been more interesting if it were more heavily saturated. And more red, like the new Lamy Dark Lilac. If it were less saturated, but more blue, I would have liked it more as well.   This picture of Murasaki-shikibu is very close to how I saw it (seems to be on Tomoe as well).   If it...
I find people smile more in movies than they do in real life. Maybe I need to smile more. I used to smile more in the past (so I have been told). I feel like I might have BRF syndrome these days. Generally, I find myself in a fairly good mood most of the time, but whenever I catch my reflection, I always seem like I am mid-scowl.   Smiling is a strange reflex. Baring your teeth is almost like a show of weakness. I think that's from Dwight (The Office). In which case,...
Think of all the cat food I could have bought! It's true, S.O., you are the sound of one hand clapping...  I just wanted to add, for Kobe #51, it seems that the black component is a bit more apparent on Rhodia and cheaper papers. So from a distance, it gives the impression of being slightly tealer than it really should. And on Tomoe, with a drier pen, the lighter parts of shading looks a bit grey. At its lightest, it still manages to give off the vibe of a more saturated...
Time to sell out. Maybelline May, sponsored by MicrosoftⒸ and McDonaldsⒸ.
Mostly May. We've almost run out. 11 days left...

This fell out of my subscription feed somehow... Anyways, good to see you too. Sailor Shigure (時雨 - and it's Purple!) might have been even more apt. I got my #51 in today. Rather than a typical BB, it's more of a rich, dark blue, without any teal undertones. With a wetter nib, it turn into a deep, almost-black with this wicked green sheen. Spectacular either way. I can see why people are so enamoured over what felt like "yet another FOTM BB". On Tomoe River, with a...
