Stream of consciousness... [May. 5th, 2009|12:52 am]
[mood |awake]

I should continue cleaning, and I will, in just a minute. I'm not looking forward to getting used to a new service, but then again at the same time I get to update both without going to any effort. That's good.

Besides, now my rancid thoughts are backed up in three locations, LJ, DW, and on my PC. And let's face it, if something should happen that is able to effect all three of those locations at the same time, well, I'll probably have much more serious problems to deal with. Y'know, like a meteor hitting the Earth, Swine 'flu actually becoming a genuine concern rather than a piece of overblown media hype, etc.

I could rant about Swine 'flu for hours. I was very disappointed. Here I thought we might finally get the human race thinning pandemic I'd been hoping for, something on a scale with Spanish 'flu, and it's another damp squib like bird 'flu (and yes I know this has got some bird 'flu in it, but that just makes it all the more disappointing). In many respects, I don't want people to die, but thinning out the race by a good percentage might slow the damage being done by us thoughtless and greedy apes.


Oh, now I want to rant about Twitter, but I'm not going to. *resists*

I drank V so I'd have the mental energy to clean/sort/baby-proof. Of course I'm physically rooted, so it's not really been that helpful. Okay, must go clean now...

I realise that Lex doesn't give you that much free time, but is Oh God O'clock really a good time for this? OK, the V may help, (or provide the illusion of doing so) but possibly keep it to only the essentials? Don't want to go into spoon debt.

I'm mostly dealing with Twitter by ignoring it.

V only helps mentally (but does make a noticeable difference).

It's very much a case of have to. I've been resisting the V solution for weeks, and just trying to find the time/mental energy to get this done, and he's just not letting me. And it's partially about making sure he's okay, but most dangerous things have been long dealt with, and mostly about getting things to a point where I don't have to constantly keep an eye out for what he may be damaging, which is a contributing factor in exhausting me.

If I sit around for a few hours, I get some of my stamina back, but as the day wears on, I need longer and longer periods of recuperation to be able to work for shorter periods before I fade mentally or physically.

I won't get most of it done tonight, but even getting some done is an improvement. As for the spoons, there are times they have to be used up and I just have to deal with the debt. *parental sigh*

*mustn't rant about Twitter*

What on Earth is this reference to spoons everyone keeps making? I don't understand!

Every so often in an article or even on the TV somebody will point out how regular flu usually kills 1000 or so Australians every year and then get back to the 100 or so that ManBirdPig flu has killed worldwide so far. I guess the thing is that every time they find a flu that kills healthy adults instead of the young, lame and old they get worried. If it really is the big one then you need to be on it from the start rather than waiting to see whether it is real or just another pretender. We can probably look forward to more false alarms until we are all wiped out by Cane Toad flu.

I was somewhat disappointed when I finally got around to looking at the buzz on swine flu to realise that it was a flu that had basically hit Mexico. I mean, sure, it was spread via international travel to a range of other countries, but for the amount of buzz we were getting here, to not have any confirmed cases in this country made the media buzz just that little bit more hyped. And really, it's a flu. They're all dangerous to one degree or another, but if you have basic hygiene and medical care the problem is remarkably manageable.

Having said all this, I would love to see cane toad flu. That would just be awesome.

I suspect with the hopeless cases of Cane Toad flu, they just beat you to death with a tennis racket.

Did I ever point you at the scientist who was racing cane toads? There were a few articles out, one here for example.

Perhaps the cure for Cane Toad flu would be to eat large amounts of prickly pear?
