Utter Exhaustion...

Unnngh!  I didn't feel ill, but so exhausted that I could just about shuffle from bed to bog, to chair and back, all day. I did manage to watch SHIRLEY, only nodding off briefly a couple of times, and found it very intriguing, although I expect it was mostly fiction. Shirley Jackson in prevented as a rather sadistic heavy drinker, who spends most of her life flaked out in bed (could relate to that-) with agoraphobia. She and her slimily pompous lecturer hubby enable each other's foibles, and seem to fuel their twisted relationship by demoralising and creatively draining a young couple. Like I said, a bit extreme, but it was an excellent watch.
