I'm signed off from work with a norovirus. Back next Monday, so mostly just playing DAI and being bored. Still haven't finished Joshiraku.

Well, I was going to sell my old Laptop Bluray player as my current one doesn't have a slot for it, so I chucked it on Ebay.

£70 Bluray player put on Ebay for £40 what I thought was a fair price considering its hardly used. Got an offer for £15 what I thought was taking the **** so I counter offered for £32, then he offered £20... -_-

So I've ended up buying a £6 cable and rather than selling it to people like that, now have a External Bluray Drive

Going to give swimming a try at the local pool tonight as I am a bit sick to death of being 100kg. I can cycle tons, do 40 miles at least once / twice a month, cycle to work, but weight is being stubborn due to the antidepressants.

Lets see how it goes.

This is why I hate selling things. When i sold my iPhone I kept having idiots low balling me, and the guy who eventually bought it still attempted to get a tenner off of it when he came to pick it up (at an agreed price). Cheapskates

Weight management is 80% diet and 20% exercise

If weight gain is a side effect of the medicine, that'll make it tough I bet.

Yesterday I went to see a Rakugo show by a Canadian performer called Katsura Sunshine who is in Brighton for the fringe festival. It's a small preview type show ahead of his upcoming seasons in the West End and Off-Broadway later in the year, but it had the trappings of the Rakugo I'm familiar with from the recent anime on the subject.

Sunshine is a brilliant comic performer and gives little snippets and observations from his many years in Japan and from his intense three year apprenticeship with his master Katsura Bunshi VI.

We got talking after the show and went out for dinner too. Touring some of Brighton's nicer venues we discussed how he got into Rakugo, the current state of the industry (booming, apparently), the differences between his Osaka school and the Tokyo system they show in Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu (Osaka doesn't have Shinunchi, for example), what it's like being the first foreign performer in many decades, how he came to London and much more besides.

I've suggested to Hanners that he should interview him for the site; I think it'd make for a great article

Here are some links and videos of the man in action:

Its quite a common side effect. Keeping stable at least, but just hard to shift.

Trying no to get absolutely blootered too often as well helps.

Also, going over port blocking and RDP access on Friday afternoons is not a lot of fun.

Bad luck. I caught norovirus for the first time this winter - seeing as I've been working in tourism and dealing with customers snorting all manner of virulent lurge incubated in aeroplanes' recirculated air for the last six years I thought I had a decent innings before being knocked out, really. Still deeply unpleasant, hope you got over it quickly.

Thank- it took me about a week but I got over it by starving myself pretty much and only using hydration packs.

Now back to the grind before another four day weekend. I love bank holidays~

Logged into something that reactivated my Facebook because I figured "Well, you don't have to use it".

Checked my feed today considering the bombing, forgot literally everyone I know is a socialist who can't help but push their shit agenda.

Lets get back to not using Facebook.
