Yesterday I spent $2.99 on a notebook to be used solely for my current Big Research Project (BRP). As I type that, it seems absurd that I spent so much money for what is essentially 80 sheets of recycled paper sewn together between two recycled cardboard covers (I suspect the recycling upped the price a fair bit). I can only say that I felt a strong urge to have a notebook to hand yesterday, as if I were about to erupt with words that urgently needed recording.

The notebook sits in my handbag, blank–but waiting.

After reading Scott McLemee’s piece on The Notebook, I feel a bit more at ease with both this notebook and the growing collection I have of such receptacles, including this blog.

Now to prepare for some oral examinations. Comps are done tomorrow.
