I have suffered a tragic loss

As I was hurrying along to intercede on the behalf of some downtrodden peoples I heard a sort of 'clink' sound followed by a gasp of horror as I realised one of my earrings had fallen out of my ear and was at that moment very busily rolling away towards the gutter.

And before I could dash and snatch it from the gross metal jaws of loss it rolled and fell right in between the metal teeth of the grate.

I was powerless to save it, only to watch it from above as it lay between some unnamed rubbish and discarded crisp wrappers... lost to me forevermore.



the widowed earring and the miasma of loss

On a similar note, of all the unpleasant things which have befallen me one of the more original is discovering that what looks like a gang of spiders has spent the night feasting upon the luscious flesh of my right buttock.

This seems particularly mean-spirited on the part of the arachnids considering that whenever I've discovered them in the house I've been interceding with Z to let them live.

A picture of the earring, but not a picture of the buttock?

Is it so wrong that I laughed? At both little tales?

Also, don't female spiders eat their mates after they're finished making litle spiders? Have you considered the possibility that perhaps the spiders are showing their appreciation to you?

Not until this moment, but I'm sure from now on my nightmares will reflect the theme admirably.

None of them really handy near the office... Also I wasn't sure I'd want the earring back after it's prolonged association with rubbish... :(

I am chained to The Man Wed-Fri but I've got Uni on Tuesdays (inaccessible from 4 until about 10pm). On Mondays I tend to be happy and free though. :) It would be lovely to hear from you. :)

aw, maybe it will turn up again mysteriously...I lost a really small button and I just found it! I feel like it is short of a miracle!

If not, you can just wear two different earings, I hear it is 'in fashion'

all hail the return of the prodigal accessory!

mysterious returns are always gratifying. So far no earring, although the missing halves of some socks turned up - I was very gleeful afterwards.
