My neutrophils, 0.0 on Sunday, have been rocketing up, reaching 0.6 by Tuesday! Naturally this is great news, and hopefully means escape over the next couple of days. One antibiotic has been stopped, and all in all I’m well.
Unfortunately, though, my hair seems to be falling out again at last! It is unfortunate because currently it is wonderfully soft, and depending on the light seems to be mostly blond, white or silver… It’s so gorgeous to touch, and I’m forever trying to fluff it up even more. That, for me, means a lot, as I normally barely even notice my hair. But now it’s falling out again! Hopefully it will return as lovely as it is now.
I am sure Paul Simon’s lyrics mean a lot more than I ever knew about – thank you as ever, Amphimacer for sharing some of your knowledge…
Here are a few of my current favourite lyrics. Generally they’re a bit more easily understandable – perhaps I’m simpler than I ever realised. Guess the band and song (unless you’re Rob and have therefore probably heard me sing most of them far too often) – no cheating please!
1. ‘Don’t pick fights with the bullies or the cads –
I’m not much cop at punching other people’s dads.’
2. ‘Is there room in your heart for one more trip to the moon?’
3. ‘You’ll never get surprises
Living in Devizes.’
4. ‘They’re drinking a drink they call loneliness…
But it’s better than drinking alone.’
5. ‘There is only one cure for unrequited love:
Chocolate and howling at the moon.’
6. ‘And he yells to the cook with his arms open wide,
“Oh, bring me more fish: throw it down by my side.”
And he wants so to belch, but he’s too full to try,
So he stands up and laughs and he zips up his fly.’
