Something in this house is conspiring to drive me mad. For the past few days, every time I sit down at my computer I hear a quiet, subtle ticking. An incessant ticking. A maddening ticking. A drive me to distraction ticking.
Why don't I just remove the offending object, you ask? Because I Can't. Find. It!!! My watch doesn't tick, the clock doesn't tick, the dvd player or digital clock on the oven certainly don't tick. I have no freaking idea what is ticking. I'm starting to wonder whether it's something in the new laptop itself, not that I've ever heard of a computer ticking before. Whatever it is, it's driving me mad. MAD, I tell you.
All I know is that I am starting to feel an awful lot like the protagonist in The Tell-Tale Heart. (And oh my god, did you know that someone has actually turned The Tell-Tale Heart into a musical?! Or rather, a musicabre as he's calling it. Amazing. The Tell-Tale Heart - a musical. Good grief.)
