I have a thing for notebooks. I recently came across a brilliant one at Powell's in Portland: a blank journal with "Screenplays about My Cat" emblazoned across the front in gold. I got another one by the same designer ("Dope Rhymes") directly from their website. I don't own a cat, and I rarely produce dope rhymes, but the paper is of solid quality and the covers are hilarious. Both notebooks are the work of husband-wife duo, "The Mincing Mockingbird and the Frantic Meerkat."
