That's one drawback of a script typeface: the typos look bizarre.
Yep. :-\ And for some reason, I have a really hard time *not* making typos on that machine. It's the carriage shift, I think. I'm spoiled. That, and even when not shifting, it takes a bit of gumption to type on it...more so than the others, for sure. I think that's why I haven't truly bonded with it, though it's a pretty little thing.
That's quite a packing list...sounds cool. Might you be interested in possibly trading for one of your SM-9s?
I'd say potentially the white-silver SM-9, the script SM-5 and the Olivetti Lettera 35l could all be up for grabs. I doubt anyone would want poor Stinky, and I'm kind of attached to the oldest of the SM-9s. But we'll see.I really wish I could bring the SG-1, just so everyone could see and feel how wonderful it is...but it's not exactly portable, and we couldn't very well tuck it under a table there.
Well heck, I think I need a more comprehensive packing list. I'm bringing several machines to give away or trade, a SC Silent Super, a SC Sterling, maybe the odious script Hermes and possibly a 1920's Royal Standard that needs some work.
I hope there is room for all of us!
I figure I can leave most of them in the car unless they're wanted (I'd probably pick the older SM-9 and the Galaxie for my own use), but it's not as though I can run back home and get 'em if they're wanted...And I keep thinking of other smallish things it would be fun to at least have on hand since you folks are the sort to appreciate 'em...like pencils, my composition book cover, and Circa stuff. I'll narrow it down to just what I can easily chuck in the faithful backpack.Heading out in just a few hours here! From what I can tell, if I hit any traffic it may be two and a half hours, so I want to give myself leeway. I can't quite believe I'm doing this...but I think it's too late to back out now. ;)
