excuses...

When I lost my sketchbook on the plane, I also lost my favorite pen.
The most pressing thing about this is that I'm hand-rendering the typeface on the bottom of this poster and it needs to match the writing on the top (that was rendered with my favorite pen.)
I've been using a paintbrush + india ink and other various pens, but nothing looks quite the same.
So...I decided to buy a new pentel brush pen online yesterday.
The bad/ridiculous thing about this is that I had just been explaining to Josh that while I do get obsessed over projects that I'm working on, I don't typically get obsessed with buying things.
"Yeah, I mean, It's very rarely that I see something for sale and just have to have it."
Not 12 hrs. later I was drooling over the stuff on jetpens.com.
Final checkout sum: $25 (Just enough to qualify for free shipping :)
And I stayed up until I was almost too tired/lazy to brush my teeth perusing the site.
The first thought I had when I woke up this morning was, "I seriously spent $25 on pens again?!"
But when I thought about what I'd bought, I was just really excited:Scented .5mm mechanical pencil & scented lead.

Weird pencil bag that reads:
"the one who has a good sense of humor." and "the one who always looks at herself through the mirror."I'm hoping it will help me never lose my favorite writing utensils ever again.

"Utensils?" I prefer "implements." What do they smell like?
