Dear Europe,
I'm sorry. I tried. We have fucked ourselves and are going to have to live with the consequences. Consequences that were TOTALLY avoidable. It's a tad frustrating tbh.

Last night my brain dreamt that my family and I got a horrifically virulent strain of chicken pox and had to try and navigate the world without starting an epidemic. My brain obviously agrees with me that this is a horrendous business.

One of my students said yesterday I should get a handle on the swearing. I didn't say "if all y'all weren't such fuckers that would definitely be a thing I could try" but it was a close run thing.
This week is my worst work wise. I have two 10 hour days and it's all very busy. But it's done now. Fuck em.

6:40 am and though it's not light, it's definitely not dark anymore.

Days off are for despairing, then self care, then sleep.

Then we protest again.

I knew all that cardio would come in useful. I'm fit, I've got excellent sensible shoes, I have come to make some noise.

I remember... 8 years ago... I skipped out on work early so I could watch the Obama inauguration speech at home on tele.
He mentioned soil and I cheered quietly, all alone on the couch.
It was a good day.

So that was the first full week of the year... I didn't do too bad - I managed to do my weekly "culture check" and got out into the sun a bit :-)

(Apparently there are rumbles that LJ is dying again... I shall have to do an archive thing and wake up the Dreamwidth version)

Christened the new DVD player with Imagine Me And You. Because it should know what it's getting into in this house.

Benches, that's what.

I'm going out for a long run over the Moors this morning. Gonna pound the remains of 2016 into the mud and watch it DIE.

Very cathartic.

However, it'll mean I probably won't be around online to wish my Australians the first and most hopeful happy new year. So I'm putting it down here in advance.

Happy New Year, my lovelies. I wish you so many good things. And don't worry - we in the North will be out, watching The Wall for you. Enjoy your celebrations, we won't let anything through.
