I have now had tonsillitis for over three weeks. This time last week it seemed to be petering out but the last couple of days have seen a resurgence and once more it hurts to eat, drink, kiss (not that's there's much of that going on, what with me being diseased), talk, gurn, laugh, scream uncontrollably at Ten's fucking incessant advertising for So You Think You Got Pants, etc. I am also disinclined to: get out bed, go to work, read books, write, think, tell people I've still got tonsillitis lest they think I'm a hypochondriac, impersonate Captain Beefheart/Tom Waits/Howlin' Wolf, etc. It's a pitiful state of affairs and I think that unless there is significant improvement before Monday I'll be seeing my doctor to demand the removal of my malfunctioning balls of throat tissue. And he'll probably just tell me to continue taking it easy, recommend I ingest still more Panadeine (bastard won't give me any of the hard stuff), and send me on my way. I really should get a proper doctor - I swear the certificates displayed above this guy's desk are participation awards from medical school fun runs.
