What should I stick in my manbook?
It all depends on your motives. If you want to impress potential mates, manbooking can help distort reality to make you appear more intelligent, interesting, or caring than you really are.
Your manbook could have pages with themes like "That One Time I Saved a Kitten" or "Important Female Role Models in My Life" or "The Sunset That Made Me Cry."
Perhaps you need to create a manbook to mollify your spouse or placate aging parents. Focus on family pictures to convey a sense of involvement. Get in the habit of taking pictures whenever you go out with the family or visit your folks. With a little creativity, the most mundane event can be warped into a golden memory through the magic of manbooking.
A family-oriented manbook could cover subjects like "Date Night: Olive Garden" or "Visiting My Mother In-Law, Who I Love" or "Fun with Flu Shots." How about a page full of wacky quotes from the kids? The opportunities for sucking up and positive spin are endless with manbooking.
Supplies — don't pay for them
For God's sake, don't buy any supplies for your manbook - use her crap. She'll feel better knowing that you're using that frilly satin ribbon she paid ten bucks for and never used. Plus, if you don't use her textured paper and all her tags and borders and stickers and stuff, those trees will have died for nothing.
