Ha!!! …..seems I am not alone

So ….the post preceding this ( or should I say see link below)  made my day ….YES the NOTEBOOK  is apparantly alive and kicking …the beautiful, tangible paper variety that you can hold in your hand, pop in your pocket and have an organic relationship with that flows and is not going to stick ..block ..or disappear into the ether …

I KNEW it …have ALWAYS loved them, and according to the article they are big with the tech head and creative types …HUZZAH!!!   I MUST tell the boys :D:D:D

There’s somthing about a notebook isn’t there? …and it’s funny how we choose them …at one time I was into the minimalist, japanesey organic paper kind that had that woody paper smell …these days I seem to be going for the opposite extreme …the more luxurious and flamboyant the better:D:D:D

Now we ALL know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover …but in the case of notebooks I feel it’s safe to throw THAT rule STRAGHT out of the window …its no good buying a cheap WH Smith pack of four ….it’s an intimate relationship we have with our notebooks …we have to LOVE it:):):):)……

Now I’ve posted a pic of Eric in his sophisticated SLIGHTLY flamboyant jacket before …(yes I even buy my IPad nice jackets to soften his cold hard edges) ….WELL …get a load of THIS!!!

Yes …it’s my current notebook …GEORGEOUS is’nt it? …it has a smooth, shiney texture like warm chrome …and the pattern and little jewels are in relief….YES …you can close your eyes and feeeeeeel them …and the cover snaps shut with a little magnet …well ..more a gentle little  ‘thunk’ than a ‘snap’ ….it’s very tactile ….BEAUTIFUL:):):):)

Hmmmmmm …if anyone looked inside they would  be a bit disappointed tho …it’s FULL of jottings,arrows and scribbles that only I can decipher:D:D:D

I would LOVE to get comments from any other notebook users out there …see if the activity is indeed flourishing and why …maybe send a pic of your current notebook

Oh dearie me ….have just read this back and am laughing

What a ‘saddo’ am I?:D:D:D

Oh well …maybe there are similar ‘saddo’s’ out there

‘Saddo’s …do not be ashamed …be bold and come forth …share your notebook experience

Come out of the closet and UNITE say I :D:D:D

Shake Up & Wake Up

SO ……I’m going to be taking a break from blogging for a little while …

Why?

Because the ex Journo, Writer, Blogger and short film maker Dermott Hayes that has thus far just annoyed the HELL out of me has taken me by the ‘virtual’ shoulders ….given me a good shake ….and pretty much said ….

STOP being so 1/2 arsed ……get your act together …..and WRITE!!!

So today I am going out with old fashioned note book and pen ( he didn’t recommend this but it’s the way I’m going to do it) to scribble things down  ……whether it’s because someone has said I’m not a TOTAL idiot:D:D:D ….or pointed me in a direction when feeling rudderless …..I don’t know …..but last night my brain went BHAM!! ……couldn’t sleep for plots, storylines and characters whizzing thro my mind:D:D:D ……..so I’m going to give it a go 🙂

Tra la li :):):):):):)

It’s pouring with rain outside but I have a brolly so don’t really care….and for some reason the tune below is running thro my mind ….I don’t know why ….but hey ho:D:D:D

Have a good one! 🙂
