Office Supply Fetish: Red Parker Jotter

Hopefully this will satisfy my office supply obsession to for a little while. I just got a Red Parker Jotter and loaded it with a blue ink “Quink Flow” refill.

I’ve had the black version of the Jotter for about 5 years now and have used it quite a bit. I’m not exactly sure what it is that draws me to these pens. To be honest sometimes I feel like the barrel is a little narrow.

I think I like them because they remind me of something my grandfather would have kept in his cart of pens and pencils. Or maybe it’s the kind of pen my parents wouldn’t let me play with when I was a kid, because I would have taken it apart immediately.

Whatever the reason, I’m enjoying writing with it, especially on the Ampad Gold Fiber legal pads I just got. Okay. This getting too nerdy even for me. Time to get to work.
