Lists of Things

1. Things on my desk: let's do kitchen counters, shall we?
The Bodum coffee machine, a loaf of mouldy bread, half a bottle of wine, the toaster, the butter, the Yellow Submarine cookie jar, the tiny microwave oven, tall bottles of cooking oil, four kinds of salt on a dish, paper towels, a scented candle, the thing that holds the sponge and scrub brush, a jug of parsley, the liquid hand soap.

2. Things on the table: a box of lightbulbs, some grapes, a newspaper, a catalogue, the telephone, K's keys, my bag, a pencil.

3. Things I am wearing: mary janes, black panties, brown cord skirt, turquoise tank top, black henley shirt, my watch, my prayer beads, my rings.

4. Things in my bag
: a zip bag with allergy pills, an inhaler, pressed powder, an eye pencil, another zip bag with my iPod, some mints, hand lotion, a Tide stick, two panty shields, some Xanax, my checkbook and a pen, my wallet, two eyeglass cases, a hair brush, my date book, my keys and a change purse.

5. Things that made up my lunch: a burger with blue cheese and a coke.

6. Things I wish I'd never swallowed: that ricotta cheesecake.

7. Things I have a fondness for that are less than obvious: cleaning out the dryer lint, picking my ears, the smell of the post office, squares.

8. A thing I wish was not stuck in my head: this hangover.

So glad you're wearing panties today.

And do throw out that mouldy bread. It's disturbing.

Some of that half-bottle may provide you with a cure for number 8.

So we are both fans of the dryer lint. I washed towels yesterday and took great pleasure in removing the lint from the lint trap.

I so have my iPod in a plastic zip bag, very classy of us, don't you think?

I thought the same thing as Kel.

Are your panty shield loose in your purse? Because those shouldn't get dirty, I think.

And now I want a coke.
