On top of which, I'm freezing

1) Take a photo of yourself now, ungussied beforehand, and unedited afterwards. Post it here.


that's me, at the breakfast table, sleep-mussed hair, no makeup, and slightly worried about what I might look like

___________________


I suppose I ought to be thankful that my sciatica, which had been threatening to flare up again all through last week, hasn't actually done so until after I returned home from Germany; but it still couldn't have come at a worse time, as I have a job interview lined up for tomorrow. I went to the doctor's yesterday, and got some painkillers, but they're not doing much in the way of actually killing pain, they sort of just blunt the edges of it for a few hours. I'm going to see a physiotherapist later on today, but I'm not holding out much hope that I'll be able to move free of excruciating pain in time for the interview in one of Utrecht's suburbs.

Oh, no! Feel better!

(But seriously, if that's what you look like just after getting up in the morning, I am jealous. You look grand!)

Thanks! The physiotherapy session has paid some dividends -- I'm already finding moving's easier. Now I just want the pain in my lower leg to go away and then I have no doubt I'll be able to talk my way into gainful employment tomorrow.
