Check In

Putting my money where my mouth is:

So far the $5 fountain pen I bought has been fun to use, along with the notebook I bought with it.  I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of doing the ten-minute free-writing exercises that are the core of the “Writing Down The Bones” writing practice.  I haven’t done it every day, but I have been doing it at least a couple of times a week, usually in the late afternoon.  I think I might be better off trying to do them first thing in the morning, so we’ll see how that goes.  But, all in all, I am pretty pleased that I nailed three of the things I posted about here simply because posting about them got me interested again.

Studying Latin again, on the other hand, hasn’t gone very far.  Mea culpa.

After I discovered a reliable source for the Irish whiskey I was looking for, Facebook started throwing me adverts for some special whiskey glasses from a company called Norlan.  I generally pride myself on never clicking on ads anywhere on the Internet, but I succumbed to this and bought a pair of them as a birthday present for myself.  They’re pretty nice, to be honest.

I don’t know if it makes the whiskey taste any better or not, but they look nice and it was my birthday, after all. I also bought various Riedel wine glasses years ago, so I guess I am a sucker for these things.

I’ll check in on all of these again in a few weeks.  Maybe by then I’ll have made some progress with Wheelock’s Latin.
