Moleskine Quality Assurance stickers


In each pack of two pocket sized Moleskines, there's a Moleskine brochure and a quality assurance sticker. The first one I noticed I stuck in the first page of the book. The next couple I received I thought, "Cute. Blue," stuck the sticker in the book, made a note that it cracked me up, and that's about it. Today, as I went to pick out my next everyday book color, I noticed the sticker was green. It prompted me to look at the stickers in the other books.

They have different patterns.

As it should be


Since I'm heading down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, I don't expect to have any working electronics. I had thought about bringing my sidekick down with me, but its need to sync everything, even when the network and wireless are off, means the battery won't last more than 10 minutes on the trip.

So, I'm taking a moleskine.

Yes, I've finally broken down and decided to use a moleskine.

I've had them since Christmas, when I impulsively asked Kris to buy me a set of three, 64 page grid moleskines. I had them in my box of paperwork this whole time, minus the one I gave Mom earlier this month. It's small, so I feel like it's a small deck of index cards (and way way way way smaller than my usual 1.5" stack of index cards, that's for sure).
