    Default hello from Boston

    Hello there!

    Glad to be here--especially after attempting to join a certain other forum which seems to have registration issues...?

    ANYWAY, I'm relatively new to the FP space, though I've learned a bit from google and forum searches and a couple of podcasts. I've been living in Boston for about 10 years now but originally from STL. My modest collection consists of: 2 TWSBI Ecos and a Pelikan m200 Smoky Quartz, though I will likely be adding a couple more in the coming months (headed to Japan later this year).

    I'm actually more of a watch guy (as might be inferred from my username) but I figured there's probably some overlap here. If there's another group that's continually asked, "why spend that amount of money? it's just a_____" It's probably fountain pen folks :P

    Thanks Deb and jar! jar, I'm pretty familiar with that cat profile picture by now, as many of the Japanese pen-related threads "out there on the internet" I've read in the past few weeks had it ; I've been going back and forth on the following: Pilot 823, 845, Plat Izumos, 3776 Centuries or Celluloids, Nakayas, KoPs and Eboya. I seem to waffle between all of them daily.

    Receive a warm welcome from sunny Puerto Rico!

    Please be advised that we like it when members post pictures of their pens. And if you include pictures of your watches that is even better!

    Welcome! You're right. Definitely some overlap. I am also into watches. Pens are comparatively a very new thing for me. Both fun though!
