word crush monday: chanel

today i spent some time training my brain to improve memory. i've also had a very itchy eye, which is grating on me. i just spent ages wondering why my music wasn't playing and found iTunes being stubborn. no matter - there's good noise again. i've been conjuring up poems, and semi-writing them in my… Continue reading word crush monday: chanel

Time Machine is Broken

Worn out from months of use, I imagine. The warranty on that thing must be very limited. I've run out of time to speed-read a book and review it tonight: the goal is an early night and I've just spent thirteen minutes capturing stray dinner-thoughts that will soon grow up to become poems.

Monday’s Missions

Firstly, I am going to create new categories. I'm sitting here writing and relishing in the sheer quiet that comes after a long day of work. I like to be organized, so I figured I might as well step it up - I feel like I've been slacking off in the Super-Organized section. So, categories:… Continue reading Monday’s Missions
