Moleskine notebook


Maybe if I use a really expensive notebook, the things I write inside it will be more profound! Sure, I have a smartphone, tablet, and computer which I could use for free, but spending $13 on a little pile of lined paper really does something magical for me.

Before you get too mad, I admit to owning a pile of Moleskine notebooks in different sizes. I hate that I like them so much. I hate that a company has designed a product that exploits a cognitive problem my brain has. I hate it and I write in them and I buy more of them.

The next time someone tells you they believe in intelligent design, ask them “Then why does my brain want me to buy an overpriced notebook?”
