hHope your writing is going well,
Alas, no. =A0I thought I had a bad cold. I am not in favour of people wit=
mere colds claiming that it is flu, but I have recovered enough to doBummer. I started coming down with a cold, but I had a lie-in on two
some googling - and I am now fairly sure I have a (mild) case of flu,
rather than a bad cold. I could be wrong, but... the main differences in
the symptoms are all in the "flu" direction, and none in the "cold"
consecutive mornings and fortunately that seemed to kick it. So glad,
I'd have hated my first NaNo to have been jeopardised because of
illness. Hope you get well quickly.
Thanks - today I am feeling much better, but... head still bunged up. I
will spare you any further ghastly details.
[*] I can think, and say, the real word, but I temporarily can't spell
it! :-) Another interesting symptom[**]. I think my body temperature is
still elevated about 0.5F above normal, even after four days. Not enough
Hmm. A Brit and a scientist to boot using Farenheit! I'd have pegged
you as a Celsius boy.
Yeah, mostly now. Celsius for most things - but I remember when the
weather forecasts changed over from F to C. For a number of years, I
thought of winter temperatures in C, and summer temperatures (and indoor
temperatures in F).
I now use C for everything except body temperatures (also, I inherited
my clinical thermometer, which must be about fifty years old, and it is
marked in degrees F. I think it may read 0.2F high, too, but I don't
have anything to calibrate it against, at that level of accuracy.
I do have one other degrees F legacy: my notion of "correct"
temperatures for living room, bedroom, hall are 70F, 60F and 50F.
This means that I feel most international hotels are kept uncomfortably
But those "ideal" temperatures are now only notional: I actually try to
keep my living room around 20C (68F) or above, and the rest of the flat
at or above 15C.
There seems to be a lot of variation even locally, with some people
keeping their homes colder, and others a lot warmer.
