Today the weather is all mixed up. Self felt cool-ish this morning so she put on a turtleneck sweater.
Sometime in the afternoon, it began to shower. Only briefly. Only the merest whisper of moisture.
Now, it is hot. So hot it is really punishing to keep the sweater on. But since she’s been traveling so diligently, most of her clothes are in need of washing. And she brought very little with her (because she knew she’d be hitting buses and trains and hauling her own luggage all over the UK). And she is also feeling somewhat lethargic. And it is too much bother to change into something else.
It occurs to self that a number of distinct words describing negative emotional states begin with the letter “D.” Such as:
distracted * distraught * distressed
It occurs also to self that it is hard to write without using the letter “E.”
She just tried doing a challenge on Jennifer’s Journal. Here it is, for those who care to try.
And it occurs to self that Word Riot, several years ago, published a piece by her that was a Dictionary of sorts:
It began thus:
Ask. Ask and thou shalt receive.
Assumpta est Maria, you sang every week in the auditorium.
Angels. Angelus. Angelic.
Admit, admit this was all your fault.
Against. Must you always — ?
And on it went, all the way through the alphabet, self pulling random objects from thin air.
And she did it. She got all the way to the letter “Z.”
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
