Coworkers who talk about themselves non-stop...

Yes, I know this is a continuation of the "freaks you work with" thread, but here me out... I work with a woman who's basically nice (though kind of shallow and not too bright) who she stops by my desk every morning and talks (30 min+) about herself, what she did this weekend/last night, the things her mother in law does to make her mad, etc. I'm single and I suppose she assumes I have no life because she never asks me about it, she just talks and talks and talks.. Presently I just sort of smile and nod (she doesn't actually seem to want any kind of response) because even though she is sort of dippy I don't want to be rude, though when I am having a bad day/not feeling well, these monologues test my nerves in a big way. I'm sure you guys work with people like this - how do you handle them?
