^ It's the rash that's the problem - the cut has more or less healed.
It has improved in the night - the cracks in the skin have gone although it still looks red and angry and feels odd to the touch.

In other words, always read the label, kids!

Didn't I say to ignore the crap?
I think it's one of those throws you put on settees - don't ask me though for sure, it's my sister's...

Today , I'm recovering from a 20km bike ride around the countryside near Chelmsford. Nothing I havent done before but recovering hard today.

1. First ride since before my holiday - nearly 3 weeks of cider , holiday food and only nature walks for exercise.
2. My bike was back at home so I had to use my sister in laws bike. Resulting in very tender buttocks and a forced upright posture reminiscent of a victorian posh lady on a bike.
3. After said ride I topped up my fluid levels in the pub (after riding there!) so also recovering from that.
4. Bike had a larger turning circle due to weird handlebars / lanky legs combo - resulting in a few near misses and several banged knee moments.

Its all minor but thats me today , feeling a bit tender and victorian.

Today my cat seems to be doing ok (as can be).

Down to a steroid tablet every other day.

He has suspected lymphoma. (costly to diagnose and does not make a difference to the treatment).

All hail my cat. Rex (after empire records).

I found in a charity shop a copy of the 1998 video game and pinball world records book by Twin Galaxies Arcade score-keeper Walter Day. The best part of the book was the second half which was actually made up of his memoirs, giving hilarious stories about all the people who he has known on the high scorer scene, such as Billy Mitchell and a Japanese boy who kept on playing PacMan while his girlfriend and family were crying and pulling on his legs wanting him to quit. The funniest thing about the book is his Asperger type humour and lack of irony, such as when he gets a record on the game Centipede he says "beautiful women were flocking around me, to speak to me with respect in their voice for the first time"very deadpan.

Also got with it a copy of MJ autobiography Moonwalker. I always imagined him as someone oblivious to his own issues so I was surprised how forthright and self-deprecating he could be at times in the book.

Today the O/H took the car round to the garage to get checked out due to a grinding noise.

Luckily everything was fine and didn't get charged for the check-up either. :D

Staying at the inlaws massive static caravan. Wacked my barefoot on a hinge and split my small toenail in half all the way down :evil:

Sodding hurts. Least there is no blood everywhere.

^a massive ouch to that.

Had to pull my little toenail off a couple of weeks ago. Pulled my sock off and it was just hanging off, had to do the last pull which was a bar steward.
