Welcome back, hypothetical reader! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (for you Americans), and that everyone else had a superlative Thursday.
I went Black Friday shopping and bought…
dun dun dun
…a calligraphy pen. No particular reason. An impulse buy, really – just a simple felt-tipped deal, four dollars at Hobby Lobby.
I then learned how to write Blackletter (also known as “Gothic script” or, somewhat incorrectly, “Old English”) and spent hours practicing obsessively over the weekend. My pen ran out of ink, so I got five new ones (black, red, green, blue, brown) from Staples.
What happens when you teach calligraphy to a geek? You get, uh, geeky calligraphy.

Any suggestions for other phrases to try?
Don’t forget, Ask Brian Anything is open till the end of the day Friday. I’ve gotten three excellent questions already, so add yours to the list! I will answer every question I get.
See you tomorrow!
