[Writing] Pen Casualty :'(

My beloved 'tranquil blue' Parker Inflection -- my first and favorite fountain pen, which I do the majority of my writing with -- took a dive off the desk, and this time when I changed out the cartridge, the ink feed system came with it. :(

Off to the U Bookstore to send the Inflection in for repairs. Parker's lifetime guarantee = teh win. And I have a shiny purple Cross ATX waiting for me, so I'll pick it up as a consolation prize.

*sniffle*

That Inflection is my writing 'soul,' I think. Still, I have my Sonnet in the meantime, and a new Moleskine notebook to console me. And I need to buy a new bottle of ink soon, come to think of it.

Erm. No, I'm not kind of geeky when it comes to writing implements. Not at all. Why do you ask?

I never used to be pen-geeky. I was happy to write with any cheap pen or a nice rollerball.
Then I got my Parker 51. Now I wonder how I coped all those years before. :)
The Parker 51 is a lovely, lovely pen. I would love one. Or alternatively, the Parker 100, which is the updating of the 51.
