Ok, that’s it, I’m leaving. Not only has the temperature dropped below 3 degrees at night, but –
I’ve had the Winter Bug.
First warmly welcomed by Ms M, then gently shepherded in my direction over the weekend, resulting in five days of ear-clutching, tonsil-swallowing, head-tightening, chill-sweating would-be bed rest. Would-be, BECAUSE..
I promised the New Boss that I’d deliver a piece of survey analysis the like of which he’d never seen, by the weekend. Which I did, by dint of sitting in my home office, shoving panadols in one end and stats out the other.
HOWEVER, the combined force of these two Destinies meant that I missed out on:
- One Act of Selfless Karma-Kounting, viz, meeting my new 90 year old Red Cross Visitee from a nearby aged care hostel. I guess killing him with The Bug wouldn’t really count as a good deed…
- Visiting the Cat Rescue Lady with bags of minced Other Unfortunate Animal (yes I do see the irony, for a vegetarian)..
- Any social life whatsoever (and there WOULD HAVE BEEN quite a lot of it, this week). For instance I’m really sorry I didn’t get to shove Captain Savage into the waiting jaws of lubricious local poetesses at the Poetry Slam, as planned (I planned that, not him).
Also, I didn’t get to read the blogs I normally read, because I was so hard at work/shivering. So I’m sorry if I haven’t been about much this week. And, of course, I failed to deliver my weekly Karmic round-up (Round-Up is a weed-killer..is that ominous or what?).
BUT I did get to hug my all time hero, Simon the Brave, who’s returned from afar with a couple of renewed addictions and some extra baggage. I do love that man, even though I’m sorry to say he looks really dumb with his tongue stuck out on Facebook (and no, I won’t put that photo up, my dear).
Anyway I’m getting better now and to celebrate here is this song!
