Fresh Find | Archie Grand notebooks

I made a weekend trip to Philadelphia this weekend to visit Dan, and we stumbled upon this knick knack store (i.e., a housewares and gift shop) called Open House in Center City. During our perusals there, I stumbled upon a bunch of notebooks by Archie Grand. For obvious reasons, the below notebook caught my eye:

The cover of this particular notebook reads Chefs I've Met and Liked. I immediately knew I had to get this as a little present for myself. Archie Grand notebooks have 120 blank pages of high quality paper to soak up any kind of ink. These pages are sewn to the spine for a great feel and durability. While it was a little disappointing to find out the notebook has unlined pages, I guess not all is lost--I can do some kind of scrapbook style documentation here perhaps. I'm looking forward to filling this with my experiences of meeting new and long-time chefs during my adventures in the culinary realm--just gotta figure out how to best utilize this notebook! I was thinking I could document the date I've met a said chef and enclose the restaurant's business card followed with a brief description of how the meeting came to be, noting any interesting conversation points. Any other ideas? I'm open to any and all suggestions!
