I’m sorry to say my Noodler’s Ahab in King Philip Purple is leaking. I used it for about an hour at work on Monday and next thing I knew there was ink all over my hands. We’ll see how things go after another thorough cleaning.

I will announce the pen for May on April 27.

No purchases this week; watching pennies obsessively. More on that below.

Some points covered this week in my journals:

  • Twelve of the fourteen pages written this week have been devoted to lists, reminders, questions and thoughts about a certain big event coming up in our lives. My company is transferring me to one of our East Coast offices which is a) where I grew up and b) SIX PROVINCES AWAY. The logistics are a little overwhelming, as I have lived here for 19 years and accumulated 19 years of stuff. Hence the lists etc. Thankfully things are falling into place daily. And what a great purging exercise. If you have to pay to move a journal collection, that collection gets paired down mighty quick. So if I seem distracted or miss a post here and there over the next six weeks, you know why.
  • For those of you who a) live in Canada and b) wear glasses you might want to check out Superstore for crazy deals. I purchased single vision glasses with transition lenses, as well as a pair of sunglasses, in non-designer frames, for $298. Yep. And the technician told me if I spent another $2 I would receive 70,000 PC Plus points (redeemable for $70 for in-store purchases). I bought a $5 bottle of glass cleaner with polishing cloth and ta-da! Points galore. Not only does my company benefits plan cover the entire thing, the glasses feel great and look good! What more could you ask for really? I’m not paid in any way to say anything at all about Superstore, just relaying my experience.

Happy writing everyone.
