just a little desperate

Sometimes life sneaks up on you so fast and so quietly you just know something is wrong but you can't quite put your finger on what it is.  Maybe it's PMS, maybe it's love, maybe it's the fact that I haven't cleaned out my closet in six months and all my outfits are no longer turning me on.  I don't know, but something is up and it's getting on my nerves.  I have a laundry list of things I need...
