Remember when the Macy’s Day Parade wasn’t a giant ad for Verizon? I think I’ve seen more ads for Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband than parade floats, at about a 5:1 ratio, if not higher. And this AR stuff is obnoxious.

Bought an empty ink bottle to swap from the horribly useless squat Sailor bottles. This new bottle is so much nicer.

Part of my Fountain Pen Day order arrived. Still one more package on the way.

Yesterday morning I had zero typewriters. Picked up the Coronet from my parent’s last night, and found a second, the 88, from Craigslist this afternoon.

Pumpkins carved, we had fun doing these. Didn’t get a chance to carve any last year.

In the process of writing a snail mail letter today, I managed to write two fountain pens empty.

Anyone else smash a smoke alarm until it stops beeping after going off for absolutely no reason 4 times in an hour and the silence button does nothing? I can’t be the only one.

Finally got time to tear into the Moonlander’s drivetrain issue. Turns out 7 years of riding in all kinds of conditions and numerous miles has finally killed the X7 derailleur. Time to order a clutched derailleur.
