Say “mol-a-skeen-a”

We just noticed this exchange at Livejournal:

M:
Yesterday, at brunch I was selling G on the beauty of the Moleskine experience.

Built-in bookmark! Elastic closey thing! Little accordion envelope! That’s what I’m talking ’bout!

I currently use two little ones (one ruled; one plain) and two big ones (again, ruled and plain) (with spares of each-sized ruled version as a backup).

Best. PDA. Ever. (that was just for you jg, my little luddite friend).

H:
I must have been parking for that conversation which is a shame, because I would have totally co-huckstered with you. Me, I like the unruled, as I like to draw pictures AND take notes all freestyle-like, and since I’m anti-PDA, it magically solves all my data storage needs, both at home and on the go, not to mention the backwards compatibility is unbeatable.

M:
And it degrades gracefully.

(I never get sick of that phrase.)

Mt:
me, i never get sick of the phrase “elastic closey thingy.”

G:
I am now all about the Moleskine. If its good enough for Andre Breton, its more than good enough for me.

A:
mole-a-SKEEN-a! (said with swooping faux french/italian accent)

you learn something new every day. that f:)n rocks!

M:
Now that I’ve found this very informative link correcting my pronunciation, I will say it like Sylvia Poggioli:

mol-a-skeen-a!”

    I’ve been looking for a good simple way of using these books to replace my PDA/Franklin brick/adresses /journal/ and every thing else that I fret over around the new year. So far I number the pages, leave a few blanks at the front and back, and go for it. I’m contemplating a month at a glance type insert that could go from book to book through out the year, and a most used adresss page for the folder( who really needs every single adress and phone number all the time.) … good lord, there is a web site for every neurosis.
