    The fuck?

    Do you have some sort of horrific tropical bacterial infection?

    No, I'm just too just-woke-up my for short-term memory to kick in.

    I'll just postpone this one to the next meal.

    Freelancing is nerve-wracking!

    Got no savings left, scrabbling to pay the bills. Holidays trashing my income, people canceling classes coz they're busy, which reduces my income catastrophically. And then within minutes of cancellations, other people wanting new lessons.

    And then just now, someone asking if I'd like to work essentially full-time as a consultant at Price Waterhouse Coopers! No idea if that will work out or fall through, but right now I'm just exhausted from the emotional roller coaster.

    I don't think I could cope with the instability of such things. You're a braver man than I.

    I would have thought this impossible. It is a great rant though. We live in a police start plagued by violence, Bogart. Only gun violence can set us free. Or we'll invade America. Again.

    It's a series of bold, fearless statements that we can all learn from.

    Am also enjoying the occasional tweets from similar visionaries to the effect that anyone who thinks this guy is crazy does so because that's just what the government want them to think. Statues should be erected to such paragons of logic.

    Oh dear. Maybe make some time labeled or numbered pill boxes so you can be sure in future

    Every couple hours? You're probably okay either way. If two pills in the same two-hour period would be harmful, there's no way they'd prescribe a regimen like this, knowing that food intake and other factors will affect the absorption rate. And if missing a pill once would give the bacteria the foothold they need to steamroll your immune system, you'd probably be under supervision with a nurse making sure you're taking your meds.

    Oh, yes. I meant, like, I was warned not to overdose by taking two in an hour, but I'm sure staggering them apart is fine.

    Wait. Forget David Bowie.

    Should be fine. Just try not to get in the habit, as the only thing worse than overdoing the antibiotics and killing off all the harmless (and therefore beneficial) bacterial flora in your gut is giving yourself sub-therapeutic dosage, which is like rolling out the red carpet for virulent, harmful strains of bacteria.

    In a surprising development my lost gloves were found in the fridge in a supermarket bag alongside homemade chickpea salad.

    I have no idea how this happened

    I can't either. I was just forced into this by the shit salaries of full time work in my field, and now I am like Born Free or something - I have tasted the sweet sweet freedom of not having a boss and now I can never go back.

    Never!

    I figure I could take a bear.

    This. Especially any boney chunks. Check for rings in the salad before taking a bite.

    When is Obama going to start locking up these fearless truthtellers that endanger their New World Order? Surely the longer Alex Jones is free the more damage he's doing to their plans for world domination?

    It's a schoolboy error.

    By Christ my parents will throw pills at anything. I have a cough and my mother's first reaction was to offer me some antibiotics her doctor gave her two years ago. She doesn't understand why this is horrifying.

    Obama is George W. Bush II: Bush Harder.

    But he's black and Democrat, so the people who loved Bush and by extension, should probably love his even more extreme successor, hate his guts instead.

    Whenever I have even the slightest amount of illness I just take one of everything in my medicine cabinet

    It's shotgun-style medical care, you see

    not the horse kind though
