Whingeing

In the past week, nothing much has happened other than that I managed to give myself food poisoning (I don't know why I chose to dismiss that greenish tinge to the ham as just a trick of the light and nothing to worry about), bought another pair of boots, and had to replace the microwave as the old one decided to die on me right in the middle of preparing dinner. The new one looks very white and shiney in its place, but I haven't needed to use it yet so I don't know at present if it works.

I was going to see my physiotherapist (or physical therapist I believe some people call them), but he fell ill and because he'd failed to mark my appointment in his diary, his colleagues didn't know to warn me before I turned up at the practice, and I was so flustered I didn't think to ask whether any of them could see me instead. So now my shoulder, having enjoyed a nice rest this week, hardly hurts at all anymore. I'd be tempted to go back to work -as I'm going out of my skull with boredom watching daytime telly- only...I'm not sure the problem won't come back within hours of me starting again. After all, my first day back at work full-time last Monday proved to be a killer, and I couldn't even finish it. Besides, the doctor told me to take two weeks off, so another week of faffing about stretches in front of me.

But the thing that depressed me most this week was that I had to decide against the idea of following David Berkeley on his February tour of the Home Counties, or even coming down for just the weekend. As much as it would perk me up, I simply can't afford it now.

DON'T GO BACK TO WORK, WOMAN!!

You push your body too far and it's now pushing back. Give it some time to heal. If you are crawling up the wall, take a gentle walk. Download something new to watch off the interweb. YouTube can be very entertaining. But don't go back to work woman!!

I'm sorry about the DB tour. There's a bunch of things I'd love to get to if I was only physically closer to them. (ie, in England)

It is a bit of a bummer that I can't do the tour this time, not just because I'll miss the music, but also spending time with my tour buddies anonypooh and quietlychaotic and whoever else is going. Even if it weren't for the money though, I doubt Jobsworth would let me have the time off work next week, seeing as how I've hardly been at the office at all this year.

I won't go back yet. Instead, I'll do my taxes, and then I'll settle down an watch Brokeback Mountain which I got on dvd the other day.

Ah yes, Heath Ledger...

Well I saw the pictures from his wake in news.com.au yesterday and they made me really sad. Okay, someone from m hometown is dead, but more than that, the beautiful pictures of Cottesloe beach in the evening made me miss Perth with a longing I haven't felt in months. It was awful.

That aside, Brokeback Mountain is a good movie. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

I've just finished watching it. It is a good movie, beautifully shot and acted. I don't know why I waited so long to see it, but then, I always do. I've yet to see the concluding part of the PotC-trilogy, e.g. -- I like films, honestly I do, it's just I don't have the time to go see them while they're in the cinemas. Well, that, and no one to see them with...

I've been meaning to ask, how are the wedding plans coming along? I haven't read about them for a while.

Stressful!! I'll be much more sane once I get the bridesmaids' dresses sorted out. Perhaps I should post on it, but it'd probably be mostly gibberish about how I can't stop thinking about it and it's consuming my every waking hour. And Darren isn't really helping (nor is anyone else, but I don't blame them - it's a geographical thing), which means we've had a couple of arguments over it. :(

But it does seem to be coming together slowly, so I just have to keep plugging away at it until it's all done. :)

Darren isn't really helping

He's the groom! Traditionally, I believe all they are required to do is show up.

Seriously though, I can well believe that it's a stressful time for you, but I'm sure you're more than up to the task and you'll make this a wedding both of you will enjoy and remember fondly for years to come.

Now I am earwormed with "Green Eggs and Ham." Poor G. Get completely well, please.

I gave myself food poisoning from ham too, I managed to ignore the sell by date. Glad you're feeling better. Might see you at David's show??

Hi Mezzer!

No, I won't be touring this month for a number of reasons:

a) extortionate airfare
b) suspected difficulty in getting time off on such short notice
c) injured shoulder

but Jules and Christy will be at some of the shows. Say hi for me will you, to them and DB?
