We will defeat them with pretty ladies and candied prunus fruits

I have a small Moleskine notebook that I use to jot down quick ideas when I'm on the train or wake up in the middle of the night or in some other situation that doesn't warrant sitting down and fleshing out an idea.

Usually, they are pretty quick and self-contained, like "Fe'm gwneir yn gyflawn gan fy nghyn-gariadon," but sometimes they are supposed to be prompts reminding me of some big idea that was bouncing in my head. Such is the case with the headline to this post. It was something I wrote down at 3 a.m. the other night. But I cannot now for the life of me remember what the fuck I was on about.

In the front of said notebook there is printed, "In case of loss please return to:" and I have written my web address. Underneath that is printed: "As a reward:" and I have written, "A big kiss."

I keep trying to lose my notebook in Fflur's purse.

"I keep trying to lose my notebook in Fflur's purse." -- Zoinks. That sounds far dirtier than I intended.

I too have a Moleskine notebook for all my amazing thoughts. As a cash reward I am offering "a fistful of dollars" for its safe return.

Needless to say I was 'riding' a 'railcar' in the 'wild west' when I filled that bit in.

I have a Moleskine diary in which I write the temperature and what I had for dinner. I BET MY GRANDCHILDREN WILL CHERISH THAT ONE.
