Amazon Reviewer groupies. They are the most s exually voracious of all groupies... and the most beautiful. Whereas the Negative Voter has possibly the smallest "membrum virile" in the animal kingdom. and the most heavily stained underwear.

Leitz Style A5 Soft Cover Ruled Notebook - Titan B&hellip by Leitz

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I doubt I'm the first reviewer to note that this notepad is a Moleskine wannabe. The wee pouch in the back, the page marker, the elastic closure, the price...

...THE PRICE! I mean come on! 22 (at the time of writing) is blooming extortionate for a notepad. Walk down the stationery aisle at Asda or WHS and you'll find any number of A5 pads of variable quality for less than a tenner. I wouldn't mind so much if it was of comparable quality to a Moleskine, but it ain't quite there.

About as healthy a breakfast as you can manage to get out of a packet. I have a special drawer at work full of these sachets and my morning routine is to cycle to work, make up a cuppa and a bowl of porridge and enjoy a quiet half hour of brekky at my desk.

3.0 out of 5 stars nae worries, captain, 1 Sep 2014
Well look. If you want good, old fashioned, unadulterated porridge, made from scratch, you can buy porridge oats by the box (or a sachet), add milk, sugar and salt(!) to taste and cook it up in a saucepan or nuke it in a cereal bowl. On the other hand, if you're away from hearth and home, have access to no more than a kettle and a spoon and you NEED a convenient porridge fix, this stuff serves.Added sugar, added milk powder, all you need is boiling water. I myself like to add a pinch of salt because it brings out the flavour of the oats.

The end result is a fairly convincing serving (a SMALL serving) of your favourite… Read more
