Whitby and all that.

You know that you've had a great time when you look back on the events of a week and you find it hard to remember anything without grinning. There were so many high points it was like one of those continuous nowhere-differentiable functions – everywhere you look, there are peaks. Without prejudice and in no particular order, here are a few: finding mattp at random in Java; going window-shopping with ankaret and buying a tiger-eye poison ring which is just capacious enough to hold one 20mg morphine tablet; a soft fabric Kali; the mad pursuits of the Tottyhounds; bimbling around Whitby holding hands with Jus; seeing spikeylady and ciphergoth again; discovering that Debauched Steve is actually blooddoll3's brother; wearing, all too briefly, a £350 handmade coat; being pain-free enough some of the time to dance, FSVO "dance"; coffee absinthe; a lovely present from giolla; warm sunshine and blue seas at the arse-end of October; snuggling with tals; seeing wildeabandon for the first time in far too long; spiced chicken and banana soup; my aurum potabile recipe being sampled with delight from my new hip-flask; buying a lovely new T-shirt with a luminous star and constellation map (positioning Draco between my nipples); watching cute semi-naked guys at Laughtons with the aforementioned Steve (including the one with cuts of meat marked out on his torso); wondering about diabetic-flavour ice cream; Kath's amazing breakfasts... you get the picture. If I haven't mentioned you or what you were getting up to, don't worry, I haven't forgotten you :D

Low points? Not many. A few unpleasant back episodes. Not managing to find faerierhona. Having to miss seeing Matt because my back was acting up, and then not managing to find him again. Some of my favourite people having rough emotional and/or physical times. A minor indication that perhaps I'd been taking rather too many NSAIDs (all cleared up now, though). Jus getting a bit Gothed-out and wibbly (he doesn't do crowds very well), though all things being considered he had a great time.

On the way home we called in at York to see my parents, who seem both to be doing pretty well, and then to see my sister and her mob, all of whom are lovely.

Yesterday I spent in bed recovering. Last night... ah, that wasn't so much fun. I think all the muscles in the left side of my chest decided to spazz all at once. I couldn't breathe, couldn't move, could barely whimper. I wasn't entirely sure, during the worst bits, that I wasn't dying. Fortunately I wasn't, and the only after-effects are a feeling that I've been kicked hard under my left shoulder-blade.

So that's what my week's been like. How've you all been doing?
