I have recently started carrying around a journal to record my thoughts about blog posts.
It’s very cool looking, and for what you get, very inexpensive.
I recommend it for anyone involved in anything creative. It also has the side-effect of generating a lot of comment (though occasionally people ask me to what Bible Study I’m going) and letting you talk about how geeky you are by explaining your creative outlets in gaming,art, or whatever.
Edit: Oh, about that “lots of comment” thing. I happened to take it to a restaurant and bar for a work function. I set it down on the bar as I ordered a glass of (red) wine, and the woman sitting down next to me (not from work) instantly struck up a conversation with me. Now, I’m a married man, so I’ve been out of the game for a while (and my wife could kill me with fist, sword, or gun, so I don’t muck with that), but I swear, no amount of nerdity was going to stop this woman from trying to have my children right there on the bar. I mean, seriously – I know the artsy types get all the attention, but this was just too much. She was stroking the book’s paper like she wanted it to have a wordgasm.
Flattering, though it was definitely the props. I’m just not that interesting.
