I am afraid that, despite my best intentions, I am shipwrecking worse than The Noisy Plume ever did. My house is dirty and ugly, the presence of anyone is disturbing me, my hair is a mess, and I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO BEFORE I CAN READ MY LIBRARY BOOKS. Ugh. Deep breath. Off to put on make-up, fix my hair, and write up a list.
