Monthly Pen for May: ONLINE in Black

Next monthly pen will be chosen on May 27


I had planned to review the pen I bought from an FP Geeks member, the Monteverde Prima in Tiger Eye, last Sunday, but I wrote about my mother’s diaries instead. Thanks to everyone for the lovely comments. I will aim to write about the Tiger Eye this Sunday.

The pen I ordered on ebay finally arrived this week! It is a Jinhao 159 and it’s pretty nifty. Review to come. And I’m still waiting on the pen coming from The Netherlands.

And … I didn’t buy anything new this week! My buying spree is over for a while I think.

Some points covered this week in my journals:

  • I regret to say I am still struggling with my ONLINE pen. I’m still using it everyday (or trying to) but it’s very frustrating. It’s still leaking and it’s just alot of work to get it to write. It shouldn’t be doing that so I may have someone look at it.
  • I’m finally seeing an improvement in my leg pain, thank goodness. The pain will never go away completely but there is a definite lengthening of the periods where I can function normally. This week I was very happy to clean the kitchen, go to the grocery store and cook a meal, without any drugs. I think it’s a combination of massage therapy and less stress at work. Whatever it is I want it to continue.
  • It looks like the hawks are back in town. On the way to work I usually see a number of Swainson’s Hawks, and I just love watching them. I record in my journal how many I see in a day. They’re fierce, majestic and dangerous. And beautiful. Read all about them here.

Until next week, happy writing!
