I succumb to other people’s blog madness

Moleskinestack"Somewhere in my meanderings amongst other people’s blogs I found myself reading
entries about notebooks.  And then blogs about notebooks.  I barely believed it
possible that anyone would write, at length, about notebooks (rather than in
them) but for some reason I read on.  Ignoramus that I am, I had never heard of
Moleskine notebooks. Nope.  Meant nothing to me.  But it means a lot to these
people.  So obviously, having read all that and this, I was forced (yes, forced
I tell you) to order a large ruled and small plain Moleskine. …

…All this fuss about a notebook??

And then I opened them.   Oooh.  The paper is so smooth.  So silky.  Slips
so deliciously under one’s fingers.  And the dinky little expanding pocket at
the back!
 
I have apologised to both of them that they are not destined for stardom
and that they are probably doomed to endless lists of the ‘bread (1 loaf), milk
(1 pint), red wine (20 bottles)’ variety.  They are looking accusingly at me, as
if they have been lured here under false pretences.  I should probably copy out
some impenetrable quotes from Derrida onto the first page but frankly, I’m far
too intimidated. "

    Ahh, and I’ve had such a similar experience. Of course, I still blog, but I’ve named my moleskine “Anablog.”
