An update. - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
An update.

Oh, dear.


Firstly, a very important recommendation, generally Britpickish but especially Potterfennish: programme four, ‘Extreme Britain’, on Dartmoor, ‘The Most Dangerous Place in Britain’, here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/science/extremebritain.shtml. 


Secondly, my apologies.  I started a number of hares, as it were, and then vanished.  It was a Judgement.  I seem to have offended, by my late remarks, someone’s patron, whether the butcher’s, the fishmonger’s, or who-have-you (not, thank God, the greengrocer’s): beginning in the small hours of Tuesday morning, I was I think as ill as I’ve been in living memory.  And it was bad nosh, not the weather, that much was rather definitively established.


I thank those who responded to my late query – one of my few f-locked entries.  I should say here that all the kind words were grateful; but I must also admit that I never even considered that my question might appear as a request for reassurance.  What prompted it was guilt: I’ve been banging on, of late, about the writer’s task, and it occurred to me I might have a beam in my own eye.  Thank you for your views.


More, no doubt, all too soon.

Oh dear. I hope you're feeling much better now.

If you were throwing up regularlly for between 12 and 48 hours, it's possible you had the norwalk virus, in which case you will be completely exhausted for between one and three weeks once the vomiting has finished. It's easily transmitted and you can have it more than once; the only preventive is paranoic levels of hand and wrist scrubbing any time your hands are going to or have been near your mouth (or... well, I'm sure you can work out where else).
