Sdtrk: ‘No more trains’ by Braille

When it comes to Things That Are Most Likely to Prevent Effective Moving, one of the top three things cited will be Getting the Flu. That’s right. For fuck’s sake. As of this writing, though, I’ve had it for three days, and with the help of copious draughts of Alka-seltzer and more sleep than the human body is meant to have in a 12-hour period, I’m fighting this thing. Surely there are better ways to spend one’s time?

A little while back, barstowmama forwarded me the honour of the Blogging Star Award! ‘This is for meritorious work in blogging and telling things as they are. Keep up the good work!’ she says, which leads me to believe that she’s confused ‘Shouting etc etc’ for some other blog entirely. Nevertheless, thanks very much!
So have you seen her YouTube channel yet? You should.

Also, part two of Violet Blue’s article for the SFGate, ‘The Rape of the Real Doll‘ is available for intense perusal. Oddly enough, a lot of the comments on it are blasting her for seemingly copying and pasting sizeable sections from the post I wrote on ‘Lars and the Real Girl‘ a while ago. Wow. Can you say ‘missing the point’? Personally, if I find that someone has said something that I either agree with or wholeheartedly back, I’d rather quote them first, as it just makes more sense to me. Besides, I’m really left with the impression that had she not been writing about RealDolls, people wouldn’t have been so critical. But you know how it is with these things…

Right, I’m going to try to cram more boxes full of books, then I intend on rewarding my good work with starting to watch my burned Cd-ROMs of either Turn A Gundam or Kamen rider 555. But… which one?? zOMG

    There you are, and now the flu! That sucks big time. I know Shi-chan isn’t really into cooking, but some chicken noodle soup, thera-flu, crackers and ginger ale should help. And right during moving…it figures.

    Well hope you feel better soon, and your blog truly does “tell it like it is…” tee hee!

    I love you guys!

    Ginger ale… why didn’t I think of that?
    Don’t know if you have it in Cali, but there’s a brand called Stewart’s, and they make various sodas; one of them being a particularly strong ginger beer (which is what they used to call it over in Engerland). That stuff is potent. If you drink it at anything below a chilled temperature, it will burn your throat something fierce, it’s got that much of a kick to it. A heady beverage!

    Again, thanks for the kudos, and thanks for looking out for us, Mom! We love you too! 🙂

    OH the joys of moving! Oh the joys of flu! I have polo mint’s when i have flu- do you get them over the pond? I hate moving. But i tend to put everything in a few boxes and in a van and get on with it. The result? 2 pairs of broken mary janes. 🙁 i’d normally say give it to someone else but i’m playing 2 gigs tonight so i could do without it! Lol! Get well soon hun! I’m sending love! X
