Archive for September, 2008


I have had a recurring headache for three days now.
It makes life very unpleasant.
Saridon provides a spurious and fake relief that lasts a couple of hours and is then replaced by the usual pounding when I have finally managed to drag myself to dissertation-land.

A few more days of this nonsense and beheading will begin to seem like sweet sweet release.

Of course, when I do go on my rare and brief visits to dissertation-land I am quite sure I can hear the Red Queen yelling “Off with her head,” in the background. So it should come as no surprise to the universe if I am found headless.

I can only hope my afterlife holds a horse.
The Headless Geranium Horseperson, striking terror into the hearts of the innocent, the Headless Horsanium Scourge of the Land.

I can’t wait.

orange you glad: a tale of misery, doom, despair and insurmountable fate

orange you glad you woke up this morning?
orange you glad you went to bed?
orange you glad you brushed your teeth,
and orange you glad your skin’s not red?
