1.  I heard the sound of my gate opening a minute ago.  I'm at my desk, frozen in fear and agitation.  I hate it when strangers stop by in the middle of the day (or ever).  They always want me to buy something.  (Okay, I peeked out the window and no one is there.  So, that's good news.) 2.  I'm writing something.  A novel!  Without an outline!  I thought this method might temporarily save me from my perfectionism.  We shall see.

3.  My eye has been itchy for the past few days.  Ever since I started wearing radiant pink mascara.  Coincidence?

4.  I have a new phone.  It' s a lavender BlackBerry and I ♥ it.

5.  I just learned this week that Alt (num-pad)3 is how one makes hearts while typing.  Has that always been the case?  I swear it used to be more complex.  ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
