That is not the worst thing. You should see what fell off of me yesterday. Gross. I would have posted a picture of it but I could not stand to look at it long enough to snap the pic.
My birthdays keep getting worse. Seems like last year I got stuff from all over the world. This year, I only had a few messages and one girl sent me something that she made in school (thanks Debbi…but what exactly is it?).

If this rain keeps up I don’t think I will ever be able to go outside again without plastic bags all over me. What a pain.

Ever since then, the pain has been manageable but constant, and I have had the peculiar smell of daffodils waft past me every once in a while, though no flowers could possibly be blooming at this time of year.

Right this very second I am writing in complete darkness. I woke up shivering in the middle of the night…the clock in the corner of my screen says 3:15am but I know that is not right. I never reset it from daylight savings time. I just figured that it would be fixed when it came around again.
I could hear the brittle dried-skin leaves scratching like unkempt old fingernails across the charred and broken concrete outside. A faint noise of rusty metal scraping against moldy stone echoed through the inky darkness. All of a sudden,
