“You can suck my ‘phytoes’ ” I was told in a friendly manner. It’s not something vulgar biologic the President of the Galaxy would enjoy, but the mere loving offer to use the last few Lutschdrageés sold under the name “Phytohustil” ; they contain Eibisch (Althea) that fights the terrible & hurting need to cough. It’s Saturday afternoon and for the first time since Sunday I sit at my desk and my computer. This “Grippe” hit fast, only three hours from beginning headaches to staggering through the appartement and falling into bed on last Sunday, and was effective : I felt weak and helpless for days, had fever and was simply laying from Sunday evening to Wednesday without any notable activity, except coughing. At least I’m five kilograms lighter. A good start, still some to go ; it helps that spring is looming somewhere out there and that means outdoor activity etc.
And it’s the best chance ever to finally get rid of the tabacco, why should I litter my freshly cleaned lungs with that nasty stuff again ?
I was so glad to have my papers sorted and having brought all that stuff up to date, now there’s another  – if notably smaller – heap of official letters that need some attention, action even in some cases, it never stops.
I have not looked into the news, GOd what will have happened anyway ? Idiots kill people, vanity & stupidity reign as usual. I noticed that google started another try to clean their net, this time forbidding nudity – and, arrogant as ever, declaring that they know and decide what is porn or un~ / acceptable : The power to define. According to FOUCAULT there sits true power, not within the discours, but when one can define the limits, what is in, what is out. Ah yes, the web according to some middle-aged American multi-billionaires’ ideas about moral – and of course, “you are free to leave if you do not like it”. The same “love it or leave it”-attitude as years ago when I left, after Leni Qinan and MJ were filtered out. I only hope that “waves of perverts” join wordpress now. As far as I’m concerned it works easily, I exported, I imported – et voilà. Enough things to tweak, just select a template with a nice font – go and find out for yourselves.
Now it’s time for tea, sofa, and some gentle music.

  1. It tastes funny, but works fine for me MrPeenee. Seems as if I would have to update my link-collection soon … I’m sorry to hear that it will take still some more weeks until your new home is ready – but it will be splendid !

    Glad to hear that you are up and about again… but that’s one hell of a way to lose weight my friend! It is good to get things in order… I’ve spent the last few weeks sorting through boxes and boxes of donated fabrics trying to create some order around the palais before staring on a new show for this year. Lovely bit of jazz to get me in the mood to finish it off…
    Stay well and I wish you success and continued perseverance with the non partaking of tobacco… that’s my next personal challenge! Have a great week

  3. What would work for a flipping Stirnhöllenentzündung?
    Good luck with the non smokinG! That is a tough habit to break. I’m so glad I quit.
    If things get very bad with blogger, I suppose I could hoppel on over to wp.
    Be well!

  4. HA – another glad phyto-user ! I seems to be a good idea to have a spare site at hand for all contingencies, LX.

    Words of wisdom – “you’ll have to quit one day, might as well do it now” – dear Norma. I do not feel the urge to light one up, but the real test will be next week.

    Oh Princess – another show ?! Will you be responsible for all the costumes ? I think it’s difficult to sort fabrics – colour, texture, print, design, use … there are so many different possibilities ! The five kilos are down and will stay down, I will even loose some more, yes !

    I’m sorry to hear that you have to suffer from this Hoppelschaum, must hurt. I guess you need to inhale, either with some apparatus or the old-fashioned way with a steaming pot and a large handkerchief over your head. You can use salty water to clean the respiratory passages or you can drop some aetherische Öle in the steaming water and inhale them : Kamille, Belladonna, Fliegenpilz, Eibisch, Eukalyptus, Latschenkiefer, Stechapfel … all the good stuff our foremothers found in the garden and the woods.
    Careful, this goes only without risk if you do not have asthmatic problems.

    No way MJ (Desireé ?) – my garderobe is incomplete without one of Norma’s caftans !

  5. Tumblr . . . . Tumblr is where all the porn is happening. That’s what I heard anyway.

    If I knew more about net neutrality, I would mention net neutrality…in this comment …to this blog post of yours. From what I understand, it’s good:
    Nobody’s packets are getting any special preference (wait, that sounded a little like porn).

    Feel better! Stop with the smokin! (Try vaping, it’s cheaper long term.)

  6. Savannah brought the topic of net neutrality up some time ago Happy Apathy, she had linked an informative video, sadly I did not keep it. This is all about the transport of information, but what gargle did was (again !) tinkering with the content. And I do not think that it is alright that google deceides what I see on blogs or not. I am over eighteen, you know.
    I will not use these vapour inhalers, but just stick to my dried datura and the day is my friend … 🙂
