    Thanks! It's scary but true (in my case ).

    Here's another one...

    You know you're a Fountain Pen Geek when you want to type the word "pelican", but type Pelikan instead...
    That's happened to me a few times

    . . . You carry a zip portfolio of 12 pens everywhere you go and the net worth dwarfs all iPads in the meeting room, combined!

    You know how to pronounce "TWSBI"

    You don't smirk at the mention of a feed nipple.

    Oh no! I may not yet qualify as a geek then.

    I'll let y'all figure out why...

    Your office notebook is filled with repeated alphabet sentences.

    The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
    The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
    The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog..."

    My notebook is quickly filling with:

    Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.

    Some unsuspecting soul will discover this and assume I have a drinking problem.

    You are so eager to use a new pen that you bottle-fill it -- while driving on the freeway. I think it was a CC (lever would have been easier).

    When someone tells you how much they paid for something, you can automatically transfer that number into how many pens (nakaya's, mont blanc, pilot prera's, Parker Duofolds, Ahabs etc) that translates to.

    You can't sleep because you can't decide what ink to order for the new LE pen that hasn't even been made yet.

    When you are the only one in a meeting with fountain pens instead of a tablet or laptop but you think they should be the ones feeling self conscious.

    Our mail room recognizes my packages and calls to let me know my pen(s) are here!
