Just as a brief explanation of why there’ve been few posts here for the last few days — I’ve been very unwell. The stress of the descent of Gamergater/Rabid Puppy filth on here a couple of weeks ago (which, again, pre-moderation stopped from getting through, but *I* saw it all), combined with the stress of the imminent election and my own general poor health, has meant I’ve been dealing with things like, for example, getting indigestion so bad I woke up at 3AM today choking on my own bile, which in turn also triggered an asthma attack that lasted an hour. On top of that, I’ve also been dogsitting my niece’s extremely energetic Jack Russell, who requires a great deal of attention.
I do, however, have next week off work. I’ll be spending a few hours a day trying to help get John Leech re-elected, and obviously all day polling day, but the rest of the time will be for a combination of rest and writing. I need to do more of both.
