I was really excited when I first saw this gadget. But then I realized that it's not, in fact, a robotic device that not only holds your book but also turns the pages for you. It just holds your book open for you. Damn.
On the flip side (ha! flip... geddit?), this clever little notebook and pencil combo just about made my list-lovin' day. First, of course, it satisfies my nerd passion for listmaking, but then it goes one further by using GRAPH PAPER. Oh my stars. I think I've stumbled into some kind of anal retentive fantasy. The clever little pencil insert is almost overkill. Almost.
Of course, paper can't go everywhere, and you never know when you'll suddenly be seized by the compulsion to make a list of, oh, say, your favourite 1980s rock anthems featuring women on lead vocals.* Or a grocery list. I understand that some people like to write those, too. That's where this handy-dandy shower tablet comes in handy.
And since I'm having one of those kinds of days, I'm cranking the Random-O-Meter up to full just to show you this Stagger shelf by Brave Space.
Soooo pretty. Mama likes.
*Pat Benetar, "Love Is a Battlefield"

Annie Lennox, "Sweet Dreams"

Heart, "What About Love"
Feel free to suggest more. My list would've been longer, but I didn't have a damned NOTEBOOK IN THE SHOWER.
