In lieu of actual content, I shall record what arrived in the post today. I carefully put in my order to Cult Pens in Thursday night, safe in the knowledge that it would appear in my letterbox on Saturday when I'd be in to receive it from the postie. The bubblepack duly arrived, containing the thing I was primarily ordering for, namely a bottle of Diamine Shimmer Golden Oasis fountain pen ink, plus a selection of other goodies on special offer that I do not need but they are so shiny. Literally, in the case of the Pental dual metallic gel pens. :-)

As always, there was something else in the envelope as a promo or general "thanks for ordering". This time it was a Uniball Signo erasable rollerball sample and a fun size pack of Haribo. The warehouse has obviously stocked up on the Halloween sweets...

The other thing that arrived was more of the fruits of a spending spree on Chinese fountain pens. This time it was a pair of Baoer 801s, which I was interested in after reading on one of the pen forums that they were basically a knock-off of my first and best beloved fountain pen, the Parker Vector. They do look suspiciously like a Vector, although I think they're a bit heavier. Alas, the really pretty one of the pair has the barrel jammed on the nib unit, to the point where I'm wondering if it's a fake of a knock-off. :-/
