After all the mentions on Strobist, I finally got around to picking up some ball bungees, from fretland on eBay (UK). Quite cheap, free postage, and gives me a few more options for attaching flashes all over the place.
I’m sure there must be plenty of other uses for these little things, too, with a bit of imagination.
After returning the Sheaffer PFM I bought on eBay, with a very helpful seller, I now have my first Parker Vacumatic. I like it a lot. Filling is easy, it writes nicely, and looks beautiful. I also got a Parker/Silver Crane ceramic desk tidy, in almost perfect condition.
A new pen meant new ink, so I got myself a bottle of Diamine Teal. Nice colour.
