Attack of the killer fungus

So now I have tinea. Now, tinea is not thrush, obviously, but it's a fungusy thing and I am sitting here going "Damn that was fast." Except it probably wasn't - it was probably brewing anyway and the timing is just, you know, the most brilliant fucking timing ever.

This is the second time I've had tinea this year after never having had it in my life before. Luckily, I still have the ointment that fell in my lap with the last bout, which I never got round to returning. Thank you and apologies and all that other stuff associated with "OMG am I glad I still have that."

I would love to know where it's coming from. I don't go to swimming baths or gyms or any of the usual places to pick up such things. Am I just having random, untriggered outbursts of fungus? If so, WTF?

Hi I'm Tats and if I were a horse they'd shoot me.

Also, this memelike thing: If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now (even if we don't speak often or ever) please post a comment with a completely made up, fictional memory of you and me.

It can be anything you want - good or bad - but it has to be fake, mmk?


The sheep, who can apparently recognise faces and remember them for years amongst other things, obviously recognise mine. And every time they see my face, something's up. Something that involves dark sheds, noisy smelly machines, being wrestled to the ground and having a hot buzzy thing applied to their bodies, and then being colder than before. Maybe having something hard and metal shoved down their throats, complete with a squirt of something that tastes like ass boiled in sock.

It was a perspective kind of day. I've been having a few health problems and I'm pissed off about it because I'm normally so damn healthy. But you know, I spent all day running around the hills with my dog, mustering sheep and enjoying the outdoors. These are not the pursuits of an unhealthy person. Lots of people wouldn't be capable of doing that.

So yeah, perspective. I has it.
