jiip sad

Weary Friday

Tired of being tired. Cough has tapered off to be replaced by a new virus that causes... well, tiredness (sleeps of 9 and 10 hours) and unplaceable malaise. Other staff at work has it too, so it's not just me being hypochondriac. Hand foot and mouth continues apace, but until I see blisters I shall think myself safe.

Nightwood left a bad mental taste in my mouth. Are there really that many Robin-type women in the world? There's another in Dusty Answer (which predates Nightwood) and I knew two RL examples in Tokyo- who, admittedly, exercised rather more agency than Robin does, but as they unconsciously exercised it for DRAMA!!! it's not much of an improvement.

Heartening drop of a kilo from yesterday is heartening, but if my body can take it off overnight, it can as easily put it back on. And from the way I was feeling when I woke this morning, I was sure it had.
