Illuminati

Miracleman and Medication

Today I got a bunch of stuff done during the morning, but have now headed home to collapse on the sofa, with a head full of cotton wool, as my slightly itchy throat of the last few days has turned into a proper cold. I don't mind feeling a bit sick in the office (and it's pointless staying home to avoid infecting others, considering the amount of couching echoing across our massive open-plan halls), but when my brain shuts down there's no point me being there*.

One positive thing from the last few days is me _finally_ noticing that sugar-free Strepsil lozenges use maltitol - which triggers my IBS, and that's why I've had an upset stomach since Sunday. So I went looking to see what the alternatives are, and discovered benzocaine throat spray, which does a pretty good job of preventing me from coughing, without any of the negative side-effects.

Also, I arrived home to discover that the collected version of Gaiman/Buckingham's "Miracleman: The Golden Age" was in the hands of our neighbours. So I've got that to read. I can't believe it's been 22 years since these comics were last in print, and we might actually get to see how it all turns out...

I have had to cancel going to see "Hail, Ceasar!" tonight, as it's not really fair on other people to cough my way through a performance. But hopefully I'll be up to it tomorrow instead.

*I may do some research for a work problem later, if my brain can manage technical things.

It's never too late

I just phoned my parents after about three weeks of being a bit avoidant. And discovered that my father has, at the age of 73, just seen the Rocky Horror Show live on stage for the first time.

Apparently it was very good, and Rocky's star jumps were particularly impressive.
