I have a cold

I'm not good at being ill, everyone needs to know, and everyone needs to sympathize. At the moment my cold's not bad enough to stop me doing anything but it's soooo annoying! The drippy nose, the dry mouth when you wake up as you've not breathed through your nose all night, the annoying cough. I hate it, make me well again damn it!

Eating meat...

Well do you, don't you?
Personally I do, and think I would have no problem killing my own meat. There's a really good programme on BBC3 right now (long live the BBC!) tracking meat animals from rearing, slaughter, butchering, and finally cooking. It's a real education, I've always been brought up to be quite in touch about where my food comes from, but some peoples knowledge is shocking.
The footage of the animals being killed will shock some people, but personally I don't have a problem with it. This sounds morbid but I would rather get a quick electrocution, then not feel anything and bleed out, rather than die a slow degrading death like we make some people do.
On that cheery note, I went to bed, then had to come back and edit this morning as the spelling was atrocious!

Soo tired!

Well I've been throroughly rubbish at posting over the last few days but I do have an excuse honest!
I've been busy helping organise a 42 mile night mountain marathon around the Derwent watershed in the peak district. Most of my time has been spent driving a minibus, shopping, chopping and peeling vegetables, sitting around waiting and making sandwiches. Saturday nights sleep consisted of about 2 hours from 4.30 am, I think I've caught up now but didn't make it to my 9am lecture this morning. All I need to do now is catch up on a small mountain of work!
