The Quest Continues: A Blank Writing Pad?

Does anyone know where I can find a perforated "legal" pad (bound with glue and/or staples on the top) that is 8.5" x. 11" which has NO LINES?

Think of a regular legal pad you'd find at any office. Now think of that same pad, but with blank paper instead of lined paper. Why is this so hard to find?

Call it one of my neuroses, but I can't stand writing on paper that has lines on it. It is damn near impossible to find a "legal pad" (or "scratch pad," "easel pad," "writing tablet," or "planner refill") that is just BLANK.

I can't quite figure out why nobody seems to make this product. I'm stuck buying these spiral bound sketch books, which are cumbersome because I'm a lefty and the spiral is always getting in the way.

What the hell? Any thoughts on where I could find one or order one? Has anybody ever seen one?

go to an art store and pick up a sketch pad?

many have spirals and others are too expensive, but i think you might be able to find something.

just beware that with most of the glue bound sketch pads, the glue usually breaks and the page will fall out if you try to flip the page.

mandizzle, it's actually what i'm using right now until i can find a better solution. the problem is that it's a total mess when you're trying to flip through your notes and find something because every other page is upside down.
