Little Fox...

starry eyed - cinerama

this film & people asking me about is beginning to annoy me.
of all the names they could choose for the little fox, they choose mine!!!


and do you know how many people have been saying 'do you know there's a movie with your name in it?' and each person thinks they're the first one to say it to me.

WELL YOU AREN'T!
lots & lots of people have asked me before you....


feeling a bit ranty today.

i've been fighting a damn cold for about a week & it's making me tired & irritated.

have taken the day off today, and the sun is shining - in fact it's a gorgeous day - but all i can do is sit & wallow in my own misery.

bah humbug.

so, if anyone has some ancient secret family recipes for horrible annoying tickly coughs, please let me know...
(have already tried hot salty water, hot rum, hot soup, ice cream, minty drinks, hot tea....nothing really works that well)

I recommend renkon. However you cook it (maybe simple is best, just fry some up in olive oil and think of it as chips) it will soothe your throat like you wouldnt believe. I got that from a very good osteopath in shinjuku and swear by it!

and it's yummy.

perhaps being happy helps. i always get sick when i'm not right with the world.

i hope you get better soon. odaiji ni little heren.

ps. can't tell you the amount of times people have thought themselves comic genius' by stepping on my foot and noting that they were trying to protect me from the spider. mind numbingly boring. rant all you like. i hear ya!

j-ster - tried the renkon chips yesterday. tasted way better than i thought they (not that i doubted the renkon or you; just doubted my own ability with a frying pan and oil)
am feeling better than i was - still not 100% though....someday recommended hot cola with ginger...maybe i will try that next...or not...

arumanda - thank you too. am odaiji-ing with spirit & foxiness...

if you're all stuffed up, I recommend eating really spicy food - really spicy ramen noodles or thai tom yang (sp??) spicy soup. Get that nose running and clear some passages. Super spicy curry, etc. I'm just starting to get a cold myself, so I'm having some beef and 2 bean chili tonight. Not as good as ramen, but that's hard to come by in Toronto. Did find a restaurant called "Izakaya" so Brian and I ordered take-out ramen and it was pretty authentic. Not as good as the ramen I had in some restaurants in Tokyo, though. Note: although this restaurant is called "Izakaya" it has only a quarter of the food normally offered in izakayas in Japan. Hope you feel better soon!!

what on earth is renkon? Never heard of it in Yorkshire! Is it similar to hot whisky and orange with glycerin and a couple of aspirin? That always seemd to cure my cough symptoms when I was little.

I have sympathy with the spicy food suggestion though. A quick Bradford curry is good at clearing out all sorts of passages:)
