Aside

I’m very excited — I won a limited edition green Lamy Safari fountain pen in a giveaway over at the Tiger Pens blog! I had a Lamy a long time ago, and ran it through the washing machine and broke it. And best yet, this one is green, my favorite pen color! Although it isn’t a pencil, I am looking forward to giving it a try and reviewing it on this here blog.
