hiroshige: foxfires on musashino


1. Either I have caught a cold or (snorts gently) I am allergic to something growing in Toronto in January. The former is more likely, the latter is what it feels like. Successive sneezes is an allergy marker in my world.

2. I used to hallucinate ringing telephones. Now I hallucinate 'text message in' pinging cell phones. That didn't take long.

3. Had more of this entry written last night but lost connection after #2. Now have forgotten what I was saying.

4. Finally finished bloody Whitechapel Gods, skimming all the way.

5. Should not walk too much, but did yesterday-- down to Bloor, along to Doug Miller's new store, by the library to return Kyoka's Japanese Gothic Tales, to the drugstore for anti-histamines, and up to my cafe. Then home, ditched backpack, and went out to scrape ice off part of the Baptists' frontage. Today leg is hysterical, the Baptists finished the rest of their sidewalk themselves, and we have 6-7" forecast to fall tonight.
