aibo, sleepy, cute

tired and wheezy, but this is not necessarily bad...

Have spent the week exhausted and wheezy. The exhaustion is because I’m too bloody busy, which is kinda good - having had a chronic fatigue illness, I’m very aware of the difference between "good" exhaustion and "bad" exhaustion. It’s nice to be tired because I’m working so hard and having so much fun, rather than because I’m ill, depressed and in pain. But I’d rather like to have more spare time to catch up with things I enjoy that aren’t amazingly important (e.g. livejournal). And I worry that if I push myself too hard, I might get ill again. So... I need to learn moderation. On another tentacle, this is rather difficult when I have a list of things to do this term that fills 5 pages of A4 - and that’s just the list without descriptions! The amount of work we have to do is insane but I’ve moaned about this before so I’ll spare you...

The wheeziness has been down to the delicious air pollution that fills the UK every year between ~2nd and ~9th November. Bloody Bonfire Night. Levels of ozone, particulates, NOx and SOx can increase to more than 800% of their typical levels during the rest of the year. Collapse )

Got about a million lj entries to write about various things I've been meaning to comment on. Don't think I'll ever get round to some of them (e.g. my thoughts about Frank Bruno and The Sun's coverage of his illness). I still owe you not just a BiCon 2003 writeup, but one for 2002! Ah well.

    okay okay
face only, scary

lj posts I have enjoyed recently

Still no time to write something myself. Bah.

You know when someone writes something intensely personal about their own life, but it resonates really strongly with you? See this entry by rivka. My circumstances are different, but... yeah.

This post by lilairen is also fantastic. Especially this subthread. I suppose I should comment in those posts rather than just pointing other people to them, but I don't have enough spare brain energy to say anything other than "*hand flap* seeble". Which lilairen would probably appreciate, actually.

If you want to be amused, see unintentional furry erotica (work-safe, pointed out by mactavish). If you want to read intentionally amusing erotica, see inquis's nanowrimo novel Chapter 1 Chapter 2 (not work-safe).

And finally, Prince Charles: semi-serious discussion and scary speculation. Hrm.

Jealous of everyone who's at Bisexual Underground tonight :/
