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.

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.

Today leg is hysterical, the Baptists finished the rest of their sidewalk themselves, and we have 6-7" forecast to fall tonight.

French, The Likeness
Leyser, Medieval Women
Carriger, Soulless
-- Curtsies and Conspiracies
-- Etiquette and Espionage
-- Waistcoats and Weaponry
Peters, Whitechapel Gods
