I searched for some humorous quotes this week.
All of these were culled from ThinkSlogans.com.

I am not lazy. I am energy efficient.
Pen: Franklin-Christoph 31
Ink: Blackstone Barrier Reef Blue
Paper: Conference Notebook - Made In China
The work conference I attended gave out a pocket notebook. It seems decent and does not indicate who made it. It does say it is made in China. I have been enjoying the Blackstone Barrier Reef Blue. The color is nice, shading from a medium to dark blue.

My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it’s gone.
Pen: Karas Kustoms INK
Ink: Callifolio Olivastre
Paper: Nock Co DotDash A5 Notebook
Olivastre is a dark green with some nice shading. You can see it in the close up. I went for a fairly simple print style with serifs. Looking back I see my sizes varied a little more than I would like.

My imaginary friend thinks you have some serious problems.
Pen: Pelikan M205 M nib
Ink: Lamy Dark Lilac
Paper: Life Noble Note
I went with a cursive with curlicue flourishes on this one. Some part of me likes to mix competitive brands like Lamy and Pelikan (both German).

I am not a snob. I am just better than you are.
Pen: Franklin-Christoph Pocket 40
Ink: Robert Oster Fire and Ice
Paper: Pelikan Hub Notepad
Recently, the confirmations for the 2017 Pelikan Hub locations went out. This notepad came from last year’s hub. If they have paper this year, I hope it feathers less. It shows some shading of the Fire and Ice, but none of the great sheen you get with better paper.

Practice safe lunch. Use condiments.
Pen: Karas Pen Co INK TI nib
Ink: Franklin-Christoph Spanish Blue
Paper: Rhodia Le Carre
I have done over a 100 thought, pen, ink and paper for the day entires (many before I started this blog). But sometimes I forget the order. So today we get pen, paper, ink. And this Franklin-Christoph Spanish Blue is great ink. Lots of shading. Of course you can see it in the close-up but it is noticeable everywhere. I didn’t push the titanium nib too much on this one. The f in safe shows some flex as well as the s in use and condiments.
p.s Send someone a funny note.
