As you all know, my grandfather has been gravely ill.
I am sad to say that he passed away today at the age of 91. I’ll be traveling and dealing with family/arrangements for a while.
I won’t be able to blog. I think I have a couple posts auto-scheduled for the interim, but I won’t be around to answer questions, etc.
I will be back on October 3 with a HUGE announcement that you won’t want to miss, so be sure to check back.
It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve posted anything.
As some of you know, I have been ill. I have been focused to getting better rather than blogging. I am glad to say that I am doing much much better now, and I hope to be back to blogging within the week.
Yesterday Quo Vadis Blog announced that they would be introducing a change to the Quo Vadis Habana.
At this time, the Quo Vadis Habana comes with a leatherlette cover (not unlike the Rhodia Webnotebook) and with 90 g bright white paper. In 2011, the paper in the Habana will be changed to a 85 g ivory paper. Personally, I think this is a bad move from the company that usually gets it right. What do you think?
“In 2011, we’ll be switching our Habana notebooks over to the same paper as Quo Vadis France. The ones we sell in North America will still be made in the US, but they’ll now contain ivory colored paper that’s 85g in both small and large (and lined and unlined) versions.
The decision was made in the interests of international standardization.”

My aunt suddenly and unexpectedly passed away yesterday, and with her children in a state of utter shock and paralysis I have been asked to plan the funeral arrangements.
As such, I’m not going to have time to do any blog posts or really check in on this site.
I apologize in advance.
To the winners of the Webbies… I will get them in the mail as soon as I have a free moment.
There may be a delay in announcing the winners for the Quo Vadis planner.

I really wish I could draw, but alas I cannot.
I’d really like to have a drawing of a fountain pen (personified) that appears to be dizzy.
I’m thinking the pen is at an angle with star and dizzy lines (maybe birds) swirling around its head. Maybe even with its eyes crossed or something like that.
I know it sounds silly, but it’d be really nice. If you want payment we might be able to work something out…
Can anyone help with this? If you can please reply here or send an email to dizzypen at gmail dot com.
Thanks a lot!
I’m thinking something along these lines:
