Maple walnut et al

August 28, 2012


I bought three scented candles today, for the first time ever. (This is because my girly sister left a stockpile of various candles when she moved away and the power cuts depleted them.

I woke up at 5 am one night last week to service my pathetically weak excretory system. Drowsily becoming vertical I made to open the door of my room. It was jammed. I pushed, I pulled, I hung on the knob; I put on my glasses and turned on the light, and for some reason […]

I know you’ve been biting your nails in anxiety over not knowing events of such import. So I actually did go to my Halloween party as Mia Wallace. In my quest […]
