Waffle. Waffle. On the fence. Really, another pen?
Waffle. Waffle. It is a nifty looking demonstrator.
Waffle. Waffle. But I already have a Safari with EF nib.
Waffle. Waffle. But I don't have one with a fine nib.
Waffle. Waffle. But I'm poor. It'll mean I'll have to a wait 3-4 months longer to budget for that TWSBI I'm eying. Do I really want to do that?
Waffle. Waffle. Goodbye $25.81. Hello, Fine-nibbed Lamy Vista (with converter, of course).
Oh dear. I really must spend less time on this site.
Sigh.

Gonzo, my man, I tell you from experience: you must learn to turn away from the deals more often than you don't. This comes from a man who bought the K7XX immediately after buying the Q701 from Massdrop, because "it seemed like a good deal," burning $400 for what is essentially identical headphones, save for the color and a few minor tweaks. Massdrop will consume you if you let it hahahaha.

@ZALHERA
I appreciate your concern and solidarity. I've done similar things that seem silly in retrospect.
Fortunately, Massdrop now sends out their updates directly in follow-up emails to participants. I'll just have to take some time away from this site. Unless they can offer a Pilot VP for $50 or Custom 823 for $100, I think I'll be okay.
As for the headphones, now you don't have to carry a pair between stereos.
I'm usually pretty mindful of my budget and will just have to resist the good deals (for a little while, at least) that are sure come up on this site.
And browse at my own risk.
Cheers.
ps. I've enjoyed your posts. Hopefully our paths will cross on forums outside of here.
pps. Not yet edited.
