Asking For Things

Thing #7 - Computer disk

I have a computer disk with 'songs # 2' written on it in pencil, and crossed out in red pen. In the same red pen it says 'THE RING' on it in ominous capital letters. Initially, I must admit I was a little disappointed. Ungrateful little sod that I am. Computer disks remind of me of school and coursework, and I don't have a computer at home to play them on, so I had to wait until the following morning to find out what it was.

Thing #3 - Eyeball

In my box was an eyeball. It is scared of the dark, so I took it out of the box, and it now sits on my desk, where it watches me work. Sometimes it blinks. I think it is starting to get a bit bored with just being on my desk, because sometimes out of the corner of my eye I think I see it looking around the room, trying to see out of the window. Luckily it has a pin clip at the back, so maybe next week if it behaves I will pin it to my shirt and...
