Always Judge a Book by its Cover


When you're in your thirties, it's probably too late

…but only if it’s a notebook. As a wannabe writer I like to make notes whenever some random thought pops into my head that might someday turn into a big profitable idea. I remember reading about this screenwriter guy, Joe Eszterhas, who was immensely proud that he made squillions of dollars off an idea he scribbled on a napkin in a restaurant.

That idea, from memory, was a one sentence summary of the plot of Basic Instinct… a huge film that put him on the Hollywood map and caused millions of randy viewers to break the pause button on their VCR remotes during a certain scene. Don’t pretend you don’t know which scene I’m talking about.

Point is, it sometimes pays to keep a notebook lying around, like this one:


To a Thai person, making a notebook with this cover probably makes total sense

just in case you have that one thought, that one brilliant idea that can make you a rich man …or woman – I’m told they sometimes have thoughts too, you know, about things other than shoes.

PS My current theory is people will be more likely to read and comment on a blog if they can get offended by blatantly sexist/racist comments. In reality, women are probably way smarter than us dopey blokes …but many do spend way too much time salivating over shoes. As a straight male carrot, I don’t see the big deal. I’d wear the same pair of shoes ’til they fell off if I didn’t think people would notice.
