    Maybe you should drink enough to kill it off then?

    And very nice it was

    The Chinese, that is; I haven’t been for the drink yet.

    Thankfully no

    Not sure they need that sort of thing here - it’s not like That London, you know

    The gods of the weather clearly knew I’d be walking back from the pub long before I even knew I’d be going there; got drenched coming home

    Hubris, meet Nemesis

    Anyway, an enjoyable evening. Now I need to decide what to have as a post-pub snack, and what to watch

    The snack was a ham sandwich on sesame seed bloomer, as it turned out; very nice

    The watching was going to be a continuation of the All Of James Bond project with Octopussy (1983). I’ve never seen this one before. And, having put up with it for forty minutes, I decided that it can stay that way, as it's absolutely terrible

    Seriously, what a steaming pile of crap. When it thinks it’s being arch and clever it’s just corny, and when it thinks it’s being exciting it’s just clunky. The All Of James Bond project will henceforth be called the All Of James Bond Except That Flaming Heap Of Garbage Octopussy project

    Having abandoned that waste of film, I instead embarked on S4 of The Wire with E1 Boys of Summer (TV Episode 2006) and E2 Soft Eyes (TV Episode 2006). Much better

    Goodnight all

    Morning folks.

    Nice weekend so far down in Sussex. Visited my poorly Nan in hospital, much discussion about the care she needs and how the NHS just want the bed back. Also visited my oldest friend (known her since I was 17 or thereabouts) and her three riotous kids. Hubby was on a night shift and they were all in "show off to Auntie LM" mode which made me laugh but drove her up the wall. Mum is soon to make bacon sandwiches and then I'll decide whether to head home directly or go via the hospital for one last visit.

    Weather seems nice down here. Blue skies through the crack in the curtains.

    <-Nan.

    The view through the gap between the curtains shows patches of blue interspersed with white.

    Colder. 17.7 in here.

    Dry.

    Looks a bit windy.

    Fecking terrible night again, endless coughing, <coughs again immediately after typing that> got up at some point and took some more benylin and gran marnier and some other cough mixture in a vain attempt to stop said coughing.

    What helped most was pulling the sheet up over my face & breathing the warmer damper air without suffocating myself by farting too much.

    It'll be a relief when this lurgie pisses off.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    Oh no, I thought you were on the mend. As my Nan would say, a cold takes 7 days to clear if you do something about it and a week if you don't.

    I think the mendy stage is some days off at the moment.

    Stopping the uncontrollable coughing without using Zen meditation would be good too.

    But there you go, worse things happen at sea, such as catching syphilis off the community blow up doll.
