Mostly just for my future self, would be interesting to see how this changes in (say) five years.
- Lamy Safari (x2, oldest one is from 2012 !)
- TWSBI Eco (Fine and Extra-Fine)
- Faber-Castell Ambition (imho, the smoothest writing one of the bunch)
- Platinum Preppy (x2, currently with blue and purple ink cartridges)
Muji fountain pen (didn’t like it at all)
- Muji 0.38mm gel pens (a bunch, both black and colored)
- Baron Fig Squire (the only rollerball on this list)
- Pilot Frixxion 4-color gel multi pen
Guess we got a bit greedy there …
Something darkly funny: was reading something with my daughter and came across something to do with gazelles and how they dance, and thought, “hey, let’s look up videos of gazelles on Youtube! I’m sure we’ll find some good animal videos!”
Bad idea. Very bad idea.
In case you didn’t click through, the top results (as I see them right now) include:
“Cheetah high speed gazelle hunt”
“Springboks Antelops vs Cheetahs” (huh?)
“Cheetah chasing gazelles”
“There’s a Theory that Gazelles Style On Predators… Just Because”
“Gazelle mother trying to regain her children from eagle but can not”
“Must see! Leopard hunts gazelle on Safari tour, Masai Mara, Kenya, Africa”
“Crocodiles catch whole herd of migrating gazelle” (with two variations on this theme)
“Shaky video! Cheetah playing with baby gazelle before eating it”
“Cheetah vs gazelle | super hunting skill of of cheetah”
… and my favorite:
“Warthog attacks newborn gazelle fawn”
Further down, the only graceful gazelle to be found was Shakira’s character from Zootopia.

Wondering if I should switch to some more structured way of recording all these … would make for a nice database to look back on later!
This pome will now be neatly blended elsewhere: as part of a general “consolidate all the things!” spring cleaning exercise, I’ve imported all this into WordPress, so you can go check these at http://abacusnoirform.blog.
I realized if I actually want to write anything here other than the “monthly update” style stuff, I want to be able to write little snippets — but also, I don’t always want to add a title. And it should be possible to stop writing at the end of a paragraph, like this one.
