Corvette Stingray Shooting Brake Aerowagon: Grab Your Groceries at 190 MPH

There’s something about a nicely-designed station wagon. Maybe it’s because of all of the Audi Allroads I’ve been seeing, but they make appealing vehicles, especially if you have to lug a lot of stuff around and you don’t want a full-on SUV. That being said, if you’ve got the means, you can still go around with style and speed, thanks to the folks at Callaway Cars.

Dan Hillier's Tentacle horrors laser-etched by Modofly

I just read through Nick Cernis’ Moleskine guide. It was interesting, but left me wanting for more². I’d never pay for customized Moleskines, but I’d modify the covers myself. Even so, it’s somewhat daunting because if you make a mistake, you’ll kind of ruin a MS notebook, which is usually expensive. I like MS enough to find out if I can buy them in bulk for cheaper. Well, maybe not in bulk, but scour some deals on the web. MS are pretty expensive here in Taiwan⁴.

Personally, I don’t really like modifying a MS to put in a pencil holder⁵. I find that ludicrous since I go pretty much everywhere with a pencil case. I’ve seen some very small and effective pencil cases that can be taken everywhere⁹. There’s no need to do that to a MS. Here’s a link to some MS hacks, two of which I don’t find useful. The pencil holder and the pencil sharpener don’t really work for me as I either use a mechanical pencil, (0.7mm Koh-I-Noor Rapidomatic⁶), or have a good pencil sharpener with me. I also have a micro backup solution if I need one, just a plain sharpener that I have in my pencil case. In exams, I’ve learned to be prepared. A simple lead pencil with a pencil sharpener is my backup solution.
