I've joined a cult:

Moleskine

I've always jokingly sneered at the type of person who buys an iPod now, when they are 'cool' for the mainstream herd, and now I go and fall for the stationery equivalent. *sigh*

But they ARE such beautiful books: Gallery
Though I hate following the early adopters, these pocket-sized books really are hard to beat. The European hype isn't impressive--but the simple functionality is. I'm in love with it, carry it everywhere in my hoodie pocket with (since the truly hardcore also reveal their pens) a black 0.38 mm Mitsubishi Uni-ball Signo DX. Since getting one, I've scribbled more things these last few days than I have in a year.

Random things I have written in mine:
Angry ranting
Rooming combinations in Leverett House
My attempt at a Japanese tanka
The registration number of a Qualysis installer Cd
Positions of reflective markers on a goat

Maybe I should write a novel instead. :p

Dude! Ya can't be an early adopter of something that has been around for a couple of decades.

Ho-hum Hemmingway, Picaso, and others used the little black books before the iPod was a stain in Steve Jobs' shorts.
