Attack of the tacks...  
In my room, it seems, simple push pins cease to be inanimate, but somehow, become like strange, crawly, vindictive bugs. With stingers.

Last night I laid down in bed only to be stuck by a pin in the arm. I turned on the light and looked to see which poster it had fallen from. It hadn't. All the pins that were supposed to be in my poster were there. Okay, I thought, maybe I'd dropped it a while ago when hanging them up and it just turned up. Fine with me.

This morning, I woke up and saw another pin on my futon. I haven't hung anything up since getting that futon, and there weren't any missing from the poster above it.

Just a little while ago, I heard a noise like something hitting the floor. I look over, and what should it be but another push pin, down by the window. Again, all poster pins are in place. I'd hammered those ones in but good.

The excess pins I purchased are all in my desk drawer. So, where are these other ones coming from? It's most bizarre...

You know, my friend and I actually teased the guy at the store who tried to sell me velcro to hang up my posters. Perhaps this is his revenge...

Okay, I have to admit. I planted those tacks because you're My Ellen and you have strayed too long with this "Brandon" guy and so I'm punishing you in as insidious a way as possible. Every time you feel the sting of a tack, know that it is meant with the bitterness of thwarted love!

Oh the pain! Woe is me! Random exclamations and gesticulations!

It's all true! I should have known...

I'm sorry my dear...but he has...that...oh, you know. Besides, don't you have a boy of your own now?

Why do you torment me so!!

Are you discriminating against me because I don't have a penis? Aren't you an equal opportunity lover? Were all those promises just empty lies? Do I have an inexhaustible amount of questions?

But honestly, I remember when you two got together and, except for the fact that neither of you are putting out for me (currently), I couldn't be happier for either of you. Hugs and kisses to both of you.

It's not what people say that you should be worried about...it's if the tacks hear you. All tacky hell might break loose...
