I have something on my tongue. Yes, I am begat with some calamitous disease which may see the demise of my tongue and all the joyful experiences that go with having one.
Until this thing appeared on my tongue [yesterday, slowly] I hadn’t realised just how much we rely on the muscle residing in our mouths. Talking, swallowing, chewing and kissing all become painful and wretched when one is bless-ed with a poorly tongue.
Sitting in the hairdressers today I made noises that were almost coherent. I shuddered every time I sipped my water. I stuck my tongue out at myself in the mirror when nobody was watching. Not to see what it looked like but because it was funny.
I think it’s an ulcer. It’s on the edge of my tongue, at the side. It’s as big as a pin-head. So teeny you’d need a special instrument to actually see it. And yet it’s made my tongue swell, just a tad mind you, but enough to push against my teeth and thus create some teeth dents in my tongue.
Gosh, I’ll be taking a picture of the happy event soon.
I hope it disappears – I have a very busy weekend ahead of me …
Bloody ulcer. Unless it’s not an ulcer. Hmmm. It makes me feel unclean. Dirty. Despicably disgusting. And horrid.
Make it go away!
I was just reading this and only one thought escaped my mind … who cares? Why do we bother to debate the issue? Is it really that important? Does it matter if you and I don’t agree with each other? Is it really going to affect the enjoyment of our lives? [And as a disclaimer, it’s not general RE in state schools that is teaching Creationism and I don’t agree with the teaching of one single opinion which must be deemed to be Truth … I agree with a well-rounded education that enables young people to form their own views. I just wonder why religious viewpoints matter so much for a generation who aren’t governed by the Church et al.]
Time to ponder the complex questions of life … … [with the help of these guys]
1) What’s the one movie you’ve seen more times than any other?
None. I watch all my favourites in equal amounts, just to be fair. And anal.
2) If you could turn one book, comic book or other print story into a feature-length movie, what story would you pick and why?
Annie. Not some crappy musical that makes a mockery of being an orphan in the Thirties. My Annie would be as true to life as possible, with the unhappiness and the dark times all made to look real.
3) Whom would you cast?
A girl with orange hair.
4) What one movie would you like to see “updated for the year 2005”? (ie, a remake)
None, there have been too many copies of perfectly acceptable original films. Where are all the people with good and creative ideas? Have they died?
5) What one movie are you most looking forward to this year?
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy of course.
I keep refreshing the BBC New Front Page to see if the Pope has breathed his last but he does mock me …
please God bless the pope and the catholics and my tongue and let the weekend be pretty xxx Elsabeth
