This evening of May 19th, 2012

I get so distracted I can't tell my left hand from my right.

Surrounding me tonight as I sit at my kitchen-counter/office:

  • The edition of Vanity Fair with newly-released photos of Marilyn M
  • Three new books I picked up for Julia, but will have to read myself first because I'm such an awesome book-chooser
  • The dishes that have been used and piled up on the counter since I started the dishwasher
  • Newly-installed pantry with mirrored doors (you never know when you might be tempted to take a photo of yourself, or need to open a new jar of peanut butter)
  • The thumb drive I put through the washing machine which may or may not be totally tanked but I'm loathe to find out about 
  • An empty wine glass and two-thirds of a Rogers Dark Chocolate with Caramel Filling bar---the balance must be restored!
  • An avocado begging to be guacamoled
  • My e-reader, just stashed
  • Fifteen silver and/or crystal bracelets that keep needing rearrangement so that I can feel creatively justified
  • The memory of a book I saw today telling the real story of Downton Abbey with glorious illustrations
  • The phone which I should be using to catch up on my siblings
  • The e-mails which none of my siblings have sent me which has caused me to need to phone them
  • The melancholy which I'm feeling about not having seen Julia and Emma this week (I did get news of Phoebe, and had a visit from Robyn)
  • The absolutely black and silent TV screen on which I had half-expected to watch Turner Classic Movies this evening
  • And, just a click away, Facebook and Google+
