Who stole all the spoons?

Thank you all for nice comments on my last post, especially leback who wrote the best part of a complaint letter. Haven't managed to turn that into an actual complaint & send it yet, due to a severe shortage of spoons.

Am coping a bit better but have had a cold for the past week. So that's been a chest infection, a sinus infection and a cold, all one after the other. Seriously, what is wrong with my immune system? I'd be concerned if it wasn't for the fact that I've been like this my whole life, and nothing makes me more likely to catch a virus than going out with a bacterial infection, and vice versa. I have been using my taxi allowance to get to and from college, which makes me feel pretty weird - guilty, even. I feel bad about fossil fuels being used to transport just me. But I honestly haven't been capable of doing the extra walking needed to take the Tube or buses :/

Brighton BiFest last Saturday was fun and it was good to see various people, such as barakta, mattp, a_musing_amazon and anarchist_nomad. Didn't make it down until the evening, so I missed all the workshops, and the_kumquat, conflux & adjectivemarcus... well, hopefully will see them in London soon. The games room was awesome, though playing giant Connect 4 against topbit is a waste of time because he'll win. My ability at most of the common board-type games is way below my intelligence level because I'm an only child and never had anyone to play them with :/ Mind you, I did beat Richard at Connect 4, but only because he lost concentration for a second and put his piece in the wrong place. Hmm.

Wow, there's a lot of tags on this post!

    Urgh. I switched on my computer in the hope I might write something, but I just don't have the spoons. I've been like this for weeks - not really…
