#200 and a Giveaway!

Yes, it is my 200th blog post.  Wow.  You have suffered greatly, my friends!  To honor you, I'm going to give away a pen.  I have a Pelikan Pelikano with an "A" nib, a converter, and an empty cartridge to refill.

I'll be honest with you.  I'm giving away this pen because I don't like it.  Why?  Thank you for asking.  I don't like it because:
  1. The nib is too wide and wet for my tastes.  Nothing wrong with that if you like 'em like that.  And some pen people do.
  2. The converter won't sit tight in the pen.  It's fallen out twice - right after I filled the pen.  [Very messy, I can tell you.] 
Yes, it is the correct converter.  I sent the pen back to JetPens for them to figure it out and they sent it back with the assurance that it is correct and it fits the pen just fine.  [No, it doesn't.]  That's why I saved the cartridge and refilled it once.  That worked much better.

So my pain in the tush is yours if you want it.  The rules are:
  1. Leave a comment by midnight Sunday, October 10th and tell me how you are following my blog.  But please don't enter if you aren't going to check back to see if you won.
  2. I will pick the winner via the random generator.
  3. The winner must contact me before midnight Sunday, October 17.
  4. You do not need to be a U.S. resident.  I will be brave and attempt to ship worldwide.
So.  #200 is in the books.  Thanks for tagging along with me!
