    • Have a few faves, because I’m a stationary nut. Particularly like a proper fine nibbed ink pen (like a Sharpie) and for a regular Biro-type pen, I opt for 0.7 gauge nib.
      Bet you weren’t expecting that kind of detail 🙂

      • Love that you give this detail. I’m a fan of Rotring drawing pens. 0.3 or maybe 0.5 for writing. But 0.7 is great for doodles. But still a sucker for old fashioned fountain pen like I had in school.

      • Fountain pens at school? Like refillable ones sans inkwell? Very schmancy! I have a traditional fountain pen I bought for calligraphy but find them quite scratchy.

      • I admit, I’ve never tried any other kind of fountain pen, apart from the scratchy-type (which I shall remedy!). I can’t believe you had them at school!

      • Okay, I confess, I saw “silly socks” up there and wondered exactly how you defined silly socks. 😀 Color and moonlight look pretty intriguing, too – well, they are particular favorites of mine as well. 🙂
