nothing on my left actually.. ..so right to  farther right, (even wrapping around to the bookshelf that is beside me on the right)--

a pen-- a stapler-- a cd (natalie merchant) my checkbook, a bottle of "dew" and a notepad that i wrote the poem i posted tonight on (table for one)-- that's it.

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

~Figured it'd be a good time to answer this one as it's actually sort of clean for once. Ok, besides the computer and it's parts:

*my little pouch wallet thing
*a little glass jar with push pins and coins in it
*a rock
*a tiny turtle with a bouncing head? (E gave that to me the other day. It's cute).
*a flattened and rusted bottle cap
*two small earings (not matching)
*a tin with pens, pencils and paintbrushes
*chapstick
*software
*a lightbulb (just laying there?)
*thesaurus and dictionary
*two cans of air spray? (lilac and lavender)
*pile of loose BW photographs
*a battery
*a plate with fork, knife and leftover dinner
*and a pictionary hourglass timer thing.

~Think that's it. I sound like a slob huh? It's not that bad really. *Peace.

And my reply:

"Sis,
      He didn't write you back (BIG surprise!), and if you want to get online, drive back to college, you have a computer there!"
