Macbeth the Usurper

Retro Toys

Hers Truly has gotten toys from my parents. They used to be my (our) toys.

For her birthday, she got a table and chair set. I had completely forgotten these until I saw them. OH WOW. So the girl now has small chairs and a small table. She likes eating at this table. It was all the rage for several weeks.

A few days ago, my sister gave her a Fisher Price plane. Again, I had forgotten it, but when Jenny mentioned it, I suddenly recalled what the plane looked like. And yup, that was the jet plane from my toddlerhood.

I think that we used to have a barn, too. I don't know if anyone has that.

All too often, my goal after 9pm is to stay awake long enough to have a reasonable bedtime. I tried writing tonight, and all I did was nod off several times during text revisions.

I can "fast write", in that stream-of-conciousness way. (The spelling may suck, but I don't fall asleep.) I just can't finely write. Maybe I should write a hack novel during these hours? Fast or nothing?
