For the first time in a very long time, Fuzzychops The Cat has been outside for as long as she felt like being outside. I checked on her occasionally through the living room window - it was nice to see her lying on the dirt amongst the artichokes, watching the flickers made by daylight, random insects and leaves. She was in her element and looked really perky.

I'm at a loose end. The usual existential stuff. And lack of motivation to do the stuff you need to do, because there's not been enough stuff that you *want* to do.

Bah humbug to this, I need to fall down a rabbit hole.

~~~

And this sneezing, could it stop already please? Sneezing started up quite suddenly today. Sprays have been sprayed and pills have been swallowed and it's not as bad as it was but further improvement would be welcome.

Maybe I need some of that local honey that people talk about - apparently hayfever can be relieved by honey produced in your own area. Kind of like a vaccination against the pollen that's actually causing the trouble.

Mind you, the bees might need to be making it from my very own housedust, rather than pollen, in order for it to work. Do bees do that sort of thing? On special request perhaps?

~~~

My mood seems to be picking up with liberal applications of the right sort of music. And today the right sort of music seems to be The Dandy Warhols, to be followed by various other examples of psychedelia with a punk sensibility until I hit a wall and suddenly need either silence or Abba. Or Hildegard von Bingen.

Music is weird.

Sneezing. Yes, I started doing that a lot yesterday too.

Sounds like you need a bit of a weekend of rest like us Splodge.

Really? I think I need something interesting to happen.

Excitement. Adventure. Really wild things.

(Where is that from? I think it's Douglas Adams but I can't remember where.)

Yep, that's Adams. Can't place it in the HItchhiker's saga ATM, but classic Hitchhiker's for certain.

And therefore you need to be swept away on a mildly amusing but mostly kid-safe adventure, along with the cat, and the Dandy Warhols, in a sort of Yellow Submarine hijinks caper. Because Fuzzychops threatened the microscopic alien civilization and the aliens came back with something much bigger, nearly the size of a Mini Cooper, and want to End The World. You will attempt to drive Bazza with the Warhols stacked behind and atop you in a silly chase scene.

Yay for happy cats.

If it's just sneezing and not snot or what have you, it might be one of those odd reflex thingies. My father swore by smashing one's fingers flat up against the base of the nose and the upper lip, as if karate-chopping oneself in the front teeth; therefore supposedly to reset the sneeze nerves and not cause one to sneeze while doing Very Sneaky Army Things. It works fairly well for me, but Kai says it's bunk and never works for him.

Supposedly yes, local bees make local honey which contains some local pollen, thus one partly immunizes oneself by small doses of local honey. I think this works better for folks who've moved from entirely different environments, like across a country, and one is supposed to start on the honey before pollen season when possible. So it only works on seasonal plants, not things like dust or mildew which are pretty much always around. Perhaps if we had micro-bees which lived in each room of the house and gathered... what, mildew spores and my skin flakes? Never mind, whatever results from this is not something I'm eating. The bees probably don't want to either.

Yay for Dandy Warhols.
