Craziness...My notes are disappearing from my notebook! I think the culprit might be that I left my work notebook (Shinola) in my hot car the other day. Today, when I went to go back though my notes from earlier in the month, whole sections had disappeared. The parts you see here are non Frixion.
Anyone else had this happen to them?

So, last week I am sitting in a French restaurant in Yokohama, Japan at a business meeting. The guy across the table from me has a monogrammed Pilot Frixion in .38 and I loved it. You may recall that in the past I said that multi-pens tend to do a lot of things...but none of them that well.
Something clicked and I needed to have this pen. (Not that exact one silly, it was already monogrammed.) The search was on and I started swinging by the stores, but all I can find are the .5's. I did find one .38 but it was in some sort of lavender color and I couldn't pull the trigger.
Oh, by the way, the 7-11's in Japan have a ridiculously awesome array of pens. Anyhow...cut to the airport later that week. .5's everywhere, but then across the display, I spy the .38 refills. BOOM, problem solved. Except for green, I could not find the green refills. No biggie, I can deal.

So, for about 3 bucks a color, I made the pen more enjoyable for me. (I am not calling this a hack, that terms is getting overused in the pen circles.)

The spring clip is a nice touch. It's still a pretty big pen to throw in your shirt pocket, but at least you know it will stay there. So, what else is new with me lately? I bought a TON of pens and notebooks. I bought a lathe to consider making pens with. The Red Sox are on an incredible run and I rescued this little Mastiff/ Lab mix.

My next post will probably be how I have just about perfected the perfect pen cup. Not the actual cup, but the contents. It's close to awesome and I will get it there before I post. Cheers.
