Actually I was responding to an earlier poster's comment about a (generic) notebook and pen could be had for $5. which as we know is true.
And yes, Moleskine Pocket size notebooks are $9.95 and IMHO worth every penny for a perfectionist like me (and I'm not bragging about being a perfectionist, frankly I wish I were not.)
It was much later that I thought just for kicks I would post my recent comment on Moleskine, just to see who many people here knew what they were. Hence the very short one line post.
Using myself as an example, I did'nt even know what a Moleskine was until 3 months ago when I saw one on Flickr. When I noticed there were over 10,000 pictures of Moleskine's on Flickr it grabbed my attention.
Then being one who loves to write with a fine pen and high grade paper, I promptly ordered a few of these and a couple of special pens that are suggested for their quick drying qualities and clean lines. The type of ink that will not bleed through to the other side of the page.
The upside of me using one for writing, is that I am beginning to recapture my penmanship which went out the window after so many years of laptop use.
I still use my BB for my personal and business organizer on Outlook 2003 and sync'd with my ThinkPad laptop. As well as using all the other wonderful features a BlackBerry brings to the table.
