The City Wakes

I've been really tired and listless all week. I was worried that it might be anaemia coming back - it's horrible. But today my chest hurts and I've got a cough, so that provides an alternative explanation which I don't really mind too much. If it doesn't go soon I'll get some antibiotics.

I have made more typos on my blog today (I think I've caught them all now) than usual, and I'm feeling really sleepy. Still, it's the weekend so who cares.

My daughter asked me to take her to The City Wakes tribute to Syd Barrett in Cambridge, but I don't think I'll be up to the drive. It's on for a couple of weeks so we might go next weekend.

I'm re-reading the Dead Zone by Stephen King at the moment, because it reminds me of what is happening right now in the USA. Here is an interview with Stephen King where he says the present day reminds him of his own story too.

"The Dead Zone" is a political novel. There's that scene in "The Dead Zone" where Johnny Smith sees Greg Stillson in the future starting a nuclear war. Around my house we kinda laugh when Sarah Palin comes on TV, and we say, "That's Greg Stillson as a woman."

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
