Blank Friday

I'm grateful that someone was walking down our quiet suburban road at 4.30 am and saw that some crazed arsonist had set fire to our neighbour's car. Luckily, the horrendous scenario where the fire spread from that car to their car and our car, and then leapt the few feet to our houses, and then the houses that we share party walls with, exists only in anxiety seized imaginations.

Apart from that this week has been a bit...blank. I spent most of last weekend fighting off some sort of immune invasion that made one of my tonsils swell up and ulcerate. I can now say that I've actually coughed up a bit of tonsil, a (hopefully) unique experience that I was not particularly looking to tick off my before 30 list.

And then I've spent most of the last week in that kind of dazed post viral fog where your brain drifts off halfway through a it just did there, and I find myself zoned out and staring into space...with no idea how to end this blog post...


  1. Oh! Yeuch!

    Hope you feel better soon.


  2. I, for one, am disappointed that you neglected to get a good macro shot of the coughed-up tonsil part! I guess the lapse of missing such a great photo-op can be blamed on that post-viral fog you described.
    Wishing you well!

  3. Sorry about the mysterious illness, but so glad the arsonist didn't cause a chain reaction!

  4. Thanks guys.

    Louciao - if it makes you better I did consider photographing it as I squished the tonsil fragment between my fingers, but then it fell down the plughole. Life is truly cruel sometimes. ;)

  5. Ewww...I guess you could say that your tonsil got defragged.

  6. I visited your blog, thank you very much. Visit you will also see my art and photos from Finland. Autumn Greetings Markku Mäkelä.
