Lost my fountain pen today. Immediately ordered a new one from Amazon when I got home. I don't know if I unconsciously take more care with my writing with one or what, but I'm certainly more legible with one.
#SaturdayFF (I think my first ever). My other major online network is the Straight Dope Message Board. http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb... . I ended up there after a different message board I was on instigated a "board war" with the SDMB. I found I liked the SDMB better and have been a member there since June 2000. The other board is long defunct
So, if you, as a pedestrian, walk into the crosswalk, get 3/4 of the way across, turn around, go halfway back to the initial curb, THEN turn around again, while I'm stopped at the 4-way stop waiting to go that way?
