Since all of you know how much of a dork I am, I figured I’d share what came in my mail earlier this morning with you all: My new Cross fountain pen! This is the Cross Bailey, which I ordered on Amazon a few days ago. Originally I had a Cross Coventry (the blue model) but let’s just say puppy: 1, Cross Pen: 0. So, I needed to replace it. Luckily I found it cheaper online than it originally is, because, let’s admit, no way in hell am I paying $45 for a fountain pen with my measly budget. The reason I got this too is because I loved my old Cross Coventry, the weight felt good in my hand and the metal body gave it a cool smooth texture. (Yes, metal and the puppy still won.) I have yet to use this one, as I’m waiting for the ink to settle in the nib. But I can’t wait to use it!
So, anyone order anything neat lately?
