I have found the Moleskine which is not a Moleskine, and it is Cavallini. Made in Italy for a San Francisco importer, they've got trade-paperback-on-card covers with interesting designs (mine has a Japanese tsunami print), a glued (not sewn) lay-flat binding, elastic strap, a pocket in the back, and about 250 pages of very writeable offwhite brown-lined paper. My 8x6" cost about US $10. Perfect compromise.
So I got a year younger today. Somehow, earlier this year I'd completely convinced myself that I was 35, I think because all of the post-MBA stuff…
No, those are not burger cupcakes.
Yay me, I baked bread from scratch! I'm not sure exactly why, but I always considered baking bread from scratch to be beyond my kitchen…
