shopping centre angel?

SpcUgly isn't it? These are the ladies public toilets at our local shopping centre, the one we can walk to. I rarely use them, indeed I think I only discovered that they existed during the later stages of pregnancy. When I carried around a mental map of every public convenience in my suburb and beyond.

This was taken sometime on the weekend, at the peak of snotfest '07, during a brief excursion out of the house for provisions. I had intended to try and sneak one in at work this week, but I've missed two days already and won't be back until next week. Today I saw my favourite hippy(ish) doctor at the community health centre and we talked about my tooth that needs root canal treatment (once I can breathe through my nose again) and how some years there are those flu seasons when you seem to go from one bug to the next, which led to a chat about the confluence of mind, body and spirit. He didn't seem to think that soldiering on was a sensible strategy at this point. So time off work, lolling around at home. I feel heaps better already but I'm being good; resting, drinking lots of fluid and taking my medicine. Can you see my halo? 

And I have to say too, that I'm rather enjoying this month's challenge and plan on photographing a different bathroom every week. Oh, I'm so easily amused. Visit a whole world of bathrooms here.

Personally, I think Soldiering On has a lot to answer for.
Apart from everything else, if we didn't all Soldier On, we wouldn't give everybody else the same lurgy.
Should be law against it.
Just wait till I'm Prime Minister....

Blimey! Would you have tried to explain yourself if another public toilet user had walked in on you and your self-portrait?

That's a fabulous halo. Or hello, as thirdcat says.
I heard from someone medical the other day the difference between colds and the real flu. A
cold virus deliberately doesn't get too severe, so people will 'soldier on' and continue out and about in their community and therefore spread the virus. It's the virus's way of taking over the world. Scary, isn't it?
Signed, the gross and obscene blogger (apparently).

Hi Janet,
Read your recent blog entry with interest especially as just bought a new Toshiba laptop that is state of the art. Very cheap here and not made in China. Am living in Ha Noi now - moved here on 25 August after contract finished in HCMC. Been really sick with bronchitis to extent can't smoke. Haven't worked since I arrived as too sick so can't really afford beautiful laptop - but I NEED it so there...
Have French built and appointed apartment in Ha Noi Old Town : Google Hanoi 36 streets for more info. Apartment everything have dreamed of for years and years; Simone de B, Edith Piaf etc could have lived here
- it's very Left Bank, Paris turn of the last century. Write to me!
