I agree on all counts. Except for the fountain pen part: they give me the chills because of the scratching on the paper. Ball point pens all the way for me.

Huge snail mail advocate. We have a box of mail supplies in the house so I can always send letters, & I send postcards to my friends whenever I travel. That you can pay a small fee to have humans transmit objects from your own hand to someone else’s remains a source of wonder.
