Calliope tagged me. Here are the rules:

Rules, rules, rules: post what you’ve got on the table (chair, nightstand, whatever) beside your bed. Leave nothing out. Nothing. Heh. Link back to the kind person who tagged you and then tag 3 other folks. Really tag them - none of this “whoever hasn’t done this meme yet” tagging.

OK, so I was going to take a photo and then I got all lazy and didn't. So, nightstand. Well, I have two, because being single there's noone else using the other one, and I'm only going to tell you what's ON them as opposed to what's IN them. Because they have drawers. Which are mostly full of junk and it would take far too long to list everything and we all know I have that laziness streak a mile wide. OK, OK, so there are embryo photos, and a journal started back when I was optimistic and first TTC'ing and which makes me cringe now every time I open it, and maybe a battery-operated toy, and some leftover BCPs from this cycle and other miscellaneous items. There, that's enough information for you.

On the left-hand nightstand I have three photos and a coaster. It's all fairly minimal because for some reason kitteh loves to get up on the bed via this particular nightstand, and she is VERY good at knocking things over. So most of the nightstand is taken up by blank space for kitteh leaping purposes.

On the right-hand nightstand I have a phone, a reading lamp, a tea-light lamp (hardly ever used), a coaster (love me some coasters), a glass with a slurp of water still in it that has probably been there for several weeks and needs to go to the kitchen, a moisturizer, an anti-wrinkle serum, the remote control for my clock/radio/CD thing, two books (currently "Start Where You Are" by Pema Chodron and "Living Buddha, Living Christ" by Thich Nhat Hanh - yes, I was trying to improve myself), a broken pair of eyeglasses, a crystal pendulum (used during 2ww's to ask "am I pregnant?" over and over again and which never gives me a reliable answer), and a large-ish purple box/basket thing containing: face tissues, my watch that I never wear but which is set so the alarm goes off every day as a back-up in case the power fails and the other alarm doesn't work, a tube of handcream, a herbal muscle freeze-relaxant thing that is great for those days when my neck and shoulders are painful from hunching over the computer too much, and a jar of moisturizer that I really didn't like but I haven't yet gotten around to throwing away.

As for following the rules on tagging three people, sorry, I am breaking that one. Unless Bleu would like to do it, because I know how much she loves being tagged! [Just kidding, Bleu - I know you would rather kill me by stabbing me repeatedly with a blunt pencil than do a meme.]


In cycle news, I am bruisey and lumpy. I got tired of injecting the cetrotide suuuuper sloooowly so went a bit too fast this morning. Yup, lump. I've picked up two big bruises, one from cetrotide, one from stims, so I'm sure by the time I get to Vegas I'll be black and blue all over. I am also feeling "congested" down there. It is too early for the follicles to have perked up enough to cause bloating, so maybe the feeling is just them having to get on with some work. God, I hope there are more than 7, but of course I will deal with whatever I get. You'd think that with 600 iU's a day something would perk up in there, but we'll see.

"Maybe" a battery operated toy??

Should'a come to my party! LOL

That's a lotta stuff on your nightstand. I don't remember it seeming that full!
