Back on deck

I’ve had a bit of a lost week – one of those achey-breaky ‘flus with sore eyes meaning ‘puter time is not restful but is rather ennervating, so I’ve just been sleeping it off and makin sure I get the kids to and from school (it’s been parent-teacher nights this week as well).

I think the relentless rain these past few weeks tipped me over into S.A.D. territory as well, so yesterday while the sun was out I got me some UV, and plan to do the same today..

Last night I had the chance to put up a post at Larvatus Prodeo about the Daily Terror running amok with a story about dangerous hypodermic needles in Kings Cross, in what was quickly determined to be a pretty obvious stunt aiming to discredit the Medically Supervised Injection Centre (hint to the gullible: used syringes are not sparkly clean).

There’s some good medical/neuroscience reading at:

Swollen amgydalae suggest causes, and possibly even cures, for the
debilitating disorder.

  • electron soup posted a link to this fascinating article raising many questions about the extent our behaviour is hardwired by our neurological architecture, prompted by the case study of a man who developed paedophiliac tendencies due to a brain tumour.

Hopefully back to regular blogging shortly.

  1. S.A.D. seems to have become almost widespread over the past few weeks. Hope you’re over it, and the flu.

  2. Thanks for the wellwishes, Morgan. I had a lovely day in the sun with my book today and am feeling much much better. I even got to take my neighbour’s dogs for a walk.

  3. I’m glad to see you back, and hope you are feeling better.
