Sickly Days...

This incessant very high pollen count is really messing me up. If I take the one-only megadose antihistamine tab in the morning, it gets me through exercising and pootling around for a bit, but by about three, I'm a constantly sneezing. itchy-eyed, rasping,wheezy,  raw-throated wreck. Wah.
Being even less functional than usual, I've spent yet more time in front of the Fool's Lantern:

Caught a couple of chapters of RIPPER STREET series 3. Yipes!
Re-watched ANDREI RUBLEV after many years. There were some bits I didn't remember seeing , like the nasty (real!) death of a horse (I disapprove, needless to say-) and the blink-and-miss return of the mute Idiot Girl, now a wealthy Tartar wife, at the end.
WHIPLASH really is very good, with an alarming turn from the excellent JK Simmons. I've been a big fan of his since his frightening 'Schillinger' in OZ.
MONTAGE OF HECK is a very absorbing biodoc about poor Kurt Cobain.
BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES is definitely the best of the HOBBIT trilogy, but pretty meh, all in all.. Strange; I enjoyed the LORD OF THE RINGS films hugely, although they were equally overblown and pompous. I don't know why this batch seemed so much less involving. Maybe I'd just had enough of that particular world. All those prosthetic-laden gnomes were annoying, too... Why were there two (doomed) good-looking ones?

are actually in Tolkien's original text. I forget the wording, exactly, but Fili and Kili were supposed to be uncommonly handsome for dwarves. There was a hint of a suggestion of Mirkwood elfbood somewhere.

Ahh, that explains it. Thanks.

She's such a brave warrior in the cause of truth. Admirable really.

Whoops, too busy giggling at your drawings to mention: antihistamines are very benign drugs in the scheme of things and I have it from a medical source that you can safely double (and probably more, actually) the dose if need be.

When I used to live in the south east, I used to get terrible hayfever, mostly down to bloody privet.

I see Ole Vinegar Tits is back on form. Bless.
