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!
I have to say that the answer to this one is obvious:
“The Dude abides.” 🙂
If you’re a Firefly/Serenity fan, there are quite a few options, such as:
“I aim to misbehave.”
Of course, if you wanted to go all Hit-Girl…
I hadn’t even thought to take this down the Lebowski road. Good thinking. I’ll do that one and post it in Friday Links.
On the Firefly side, I was leaning toward:
I don’t care
I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me
“I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar”
Can you believe I had to look up this quote? It’s been too long since I’ve seen Serenity…
I’ll post this on Friday. 🙂
