New Words:  595
Total Words: 595
Pages: 5
Deadline: none. because of course I couldn't be mugged by either of the shorts I owe.
Reason for stopping: bed
Stimulants:  cream cheese bagel
Exercise: weights, ski machine
Mail: money!
Today's words Word don't know: depilation, scrunchy 
Mean Things: scrotal tattooing.
Darling du jour:  The tattoo artist was Yukako Kobayashi, and she was in her sixties or seventies--or possibly older; with her hair skinned back in a bun, her cheekbones lifted like unfurling wings under button-bright eyes. She was tiny in her batwing sweaters and leggings, scrunchy elf boots pooled at her ankles, and Matt was just barely thankful that she hadn't opted for the Laura Holt hair to complete the outfit.
Books in progress: Martin Cruz Smith, Stallion Gate; Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice;
The glamour!: I just spent two hours researching penis tattoos. I do not get paid enough for this gig.
