New Toy!


…and it’s not electronic!

For those of you that don’t know already. I’m an artist. I love to paint, draw, and all that good stuff. One of my most favorite thing to do is Calligraphy. I’ve always been fascinated by typography, lettering, fancy handwriting, and “graffiti” ever since I was a kid. I was also into poetry so calligraphy and poetry went together nicely. When I was in junior high and high school I’d always be giving my friends fake tattoos. Anyway, aside from collecting Greygoose bottles and electronic gadgets, I also collect incredible writing instruments. This piece is the latest addition to my collection :) I’ve been wanting one of these for so long but never got it because it’s extremely expensive. I have several fountain pens but none as handsome as this one. This is a pen I definitely wouldn’t let anyone borrow :)

Mont Blanc Meisterstück Solitaire Doué Signum Classique Medium Point Fountain Pen
Fountain pen with piston converter, 18 K gold nib with platinum inlay, special design features Montblanc star logo engraved on black precious resin, platinum-plated cap inlaid with Montblanc white star, platinum-plated clip and rings. MSRP $790.00
Mont Blanc Ink bottle $11.90
(I take it the store isn’t relying on the ink to make their money…)

Each Pen is engraved with a unique identification number. ooOoooOh….

Piston converter to pump ink instead of having to use cartridges although cartridges can be used as well. aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh….

Pooh wanted to model the pen for my blog…I think Mont Blanc should hire him. Don’t you?

Anyway, I am sure many of my readers probably aren’t as fascinated with the specs on a pen as much as I am. I just thought I’d share one of my random interests with you guys. :)

    Ohmigawd! $790? Jeeezzz! Wow! But it seems to be a good investment, Tiggah, since you’re really good at Calligraphy! I wonder if you’re good at swordmanship, too (Think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon!) =)

    Pooh can model for that expensive thing, fo’ sho! He needs a good director though! I like that pose. But he can do better! Hehe.

    Like your new haircut, by the way! Kamusta na?

    tiggah I totally understand – I have a Mont Blanc Mieisterstuck – I like just holding it in my hand and feeling the weight and the smoothness (ooooh…).

    I hope the pen cheers you up some too

    You have great handwriting. I love the hair. Pooh is a very lucky man.

    I know about the relationship issues. My man Oliver and I are going through them right now.

    I can’t seem to get him to want to move to Scottsdale, AZ with me even though my job is a great opportunity for both of us to get away from Florida.
