You may have heard of the book or blog called Stuff White People Like. It's amusing, and often all too true. I came across this post today:
#122 Moleskine Notebooks.
I admit, I own one, and I carry it around in my bag and occasionally write down ideas for stories or little poems in them.
It was actually useful the one time that I needed to produce more poems that I expected: the Poetry Slam. It got me a $25 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble (which reminds me... I should use that sometime...).
