Saturday Morning, March 24

1) Ugh. It's definitely a cold. Unable to sleep, so up by 5:15 AM. Coffee, devotional, breakfast, bathroom cleaning, shower, and off to Haymahket by 8:15 AM.

1a) Lemons! So necessary for a cold. Now I have seven, and they'll go into tea and soup.

2) Snatched up Valley of the Dolls to read on the subway, which I hadn't picked up in some time. It's still the best mindless beach read there is.

3) My friend Miss Percy Larsen will be delighted to know that I indulged in the DVD of Sternberg's famous The Scarlet Empress starring Marlene Dietrich. Clips on the Yewtybbe are simply too enticing to avoid this any longer!
