    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    This seems a decent thread. I hate to kill it.

    What is inconceivable is the number of innocent moles who have died to make notebooks for us to scribble in. For shame!

    This mole can go, though.

    They are expensive here too. Overpriced.

    Get a Leuchtturm1917 instead (though admittedly they're not the cheapest around).

    Leuchtturm1917? I've never heard about this brand before, thanks.

    What is good in Moleskines is how they're built. Good quality paper assembled in a way that allows to completely open the notebook, leaving no bump created by the spine of the book. That's awesome when it comes to sketchbooks, allowing to do double-page drawings and stuff.

    I had my sister to bring some for me when she went to Europe, so I can finally try one without having to pay 2x-3x the original price here.

    Nihal:

    Yeah, same with the Leuchtturm. I came across them looking for good-quality paper notebooks, because I write with a fountain pen and with most notebooks the ink bleeds right through the page. You have to have good paper for that.

    I don't think the Leuchtturms will open the way you want, though. Although they make a lot of different notebooks, so maybe they have something that does.

    This just in: I was having tea at 4:00 in the afternoon, which is the official tea time.

    Uh… isn't it? I wouldn't really know. Massachusetts is better known for dumping tea into the ocean. I don't live on the coast so I had to drink it. It was too hot to drink near the pool, and dumping tea in the toilet or bathtub doesn't make a strong enough statement.

    4:05. I think I'll pour another cup.



    @People having a real conversation: sorry.

    ^ That made me chuckle. Shame I'm all out of thanks again.

    Careful, tea-dumping is a sensitive topic for a certain Scribe around here. ;)

    @Ireth,

    Then I'll get no thanks for representing my home state by echoing the statement made my the original tea-dumping Bostonians:

    Quick switch back to the older conversation topic just to maintain the chaos, mwahaha!

    I went through the Leuchtturm, trying to find notebooks with paper of a good gramature, so, I ended checking all their lines. I don't think I saw any one with the feature I'm looking for. :|

    About the tea, you can throw away as much tea you want! Yuck!

    In Hong Kong, there are so-called local 'western' restaurants. They usually serve breakfast foods, and are as authentically western as Americanized* Chinese restaurants.

    *(My wife had no idea what a fortune cookie or a crab rangoon was when we first met. In a game of charades, when she drew the word 'fortune cookie' she mimicked eating a cooking, then wiping her brow in mock relief after being missed by a falling object.)

    Anyway, at the HK western restaurants, they serve a drink called 'coffee-tea.' Take coffee and tea, put them together, and you end up with a drink that is neither instead of both. By that I mean, you can like both coffee and tea, but not necessarily like coffee-tea. I don't. Next time I'm back, I'll start the Tsim Sha Tsui Coffee-Tea Party.

    Heh. My dad once had that here in Canada by complete accident -- he ordered tea, but by some odd mistake they put coffee into his teapot along with the teabag. He didn't like it much. XD

    *now curious as to what tea would taste like if made with the leaves of the coffee plant... would that be coffee tea too?*

    Just because we had a damn fine Navy that put everyone else to shame, does not make us fish.
