As the Cottonwood continues to propel itself into the air with reckless abandon , my sinus's continue to suffer. Week two: and although it's miserable and rainy out somehow those pesky allergens are still macheteing their way into my nasal passages. Here's another excerpt from one of my 10 year old London publications - Enjoy.
In other news. I’m in love. Hard core love. Seriously the mere thought of him sends chills up and down my spine. Melvin, Millicent and I went to the movies the other night. We saw Batman Begins. Yes. Yes. Christian Bale *car tires screeching to a halt* Actually no. How about Cillian Murphy? His “piercing blue eyes” paralyzed me when they first appeared on the big screen. I shit you not, when I say drool was pooling at the corners of my mouth every time he flashed across the celluloid. There’s something to be said for being dangerously attractive AND a sinister mastermind devoid of morals with a love of hallucinogenics. In a word. Wow. He can contaminate my ground water supply any day.
It’s nice to have a new crush. Damon has been most elusive since I no longer work 4 doors away from his house. Odd?
Only slightly less boring than my imaginary love affairs are…….
My allergies. Which are marching along nicely, thank you very much. If I could rip my eyes out of their sockets and scratch the remaining bloody holes with a scouring pad, I’m sure I’d be left feeling satiated and in less discomfort. I’m an absolute mess. And the stupid London Plane trees (clearly put on this earth to torment me) just stand there laughing as they continue to thrust pollen in the air on a regular basis. I did some reading up on this thing the English have called a Pollen Count. Right now is when we are infested by tree pollen (read: The LDN P. tree) this debilitating infestation should last roughly…. till the end of august. By which time I’ll be happily resting in a nice cool grave or I’ll be in Canadia, where I belong. I’m miserable. There’s constant sneezing. The past 3 days I’ve been favoring about 5-8 annoyingly loud repetitions of sneezes in a given second. There’s constant nose blowing, with careful attention not blow one too many times and end up with a gusher of a nose bleed and half a tampon stuck in my nostril for the remainder of the day. And there’s constant eye rubbing. I try to get my fists as far into my eyes as they’ll go, but I still end up puffy and red and scratchy and unsatisfied. Some new developments are the sore throat, and the cough. These are 2 very new symptoms. And may I say, a nice change from the monotony.
