Holding pattern ...  
Am sitting in Adelaide David Jones food hall drugged out of my mind but with a stable wireless connection which my hotel would not allow. Ask me about my headache! I will say URRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH, at you, and also that Urgh is probably the first word I have not had to fix a typo in so far. Including typo.

The plane had issues, I am underslept even for me, and I have two Britpicks that I wanted to send back tonight. Girls, I will send them tomorrow. Please send your mods here where I take full responsibility. Tonight I would probably insist that you add in a gotten or indeed a golem somewhere, I am so out of my skull.

On asprin.

Fucking lightweight.

I owe many comments, which will also happen tomorrow. Staggering back upstairs now. At least I have chocolate, so if I throw up later it will taste good! (ish)

Poor Brammers. My partner would say this is karma for his cocaine cube incident the other day.

Hope you feel better soon.

What was he thinking eating four before bedtime? Silly M! A Violet Crumble is a breakfast food!

Crashed and burned this afternoon, but feeling considerably better now.

Sweetheart, you don't have to send it at all! Good Lord, take care of yourself first. I'm dead serious. The fic's since had a full copy-edit beta. Getting it Britpicked is one of my stupid hang-ups. It can go without this once.

I think I need to win the lottery so I can send you and Cal to one of those fancy healing spas for a month.

Rest and get better.

I'd never thought of that description before... I'm not a beta reader, I'm a copy editor! (I hate commenting on style...) Of course, I'm a halfway decent continuity editor, too...

*tucks you into a nice, warm blanket and gives you hot chocolate* Feel better soon, my dear. :)

blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 12:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks, dear. That should make everything better!
beatnikspinster on August 22nd, 2008 12:10 pm (UTC)
That sucks. I hope you feel better soon.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 01:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I am on the mend, but yes, silly to go to a nice city and then sleep through it. Oh well ...
Randy: Noah Luke Bitch Pleasedrgaellon on August 22nd, 2008 12:56 pm (UTC)
Awwww... poor Brammers. Sending you healing thoughts and lots of paracetamol (see, even I know that only we Colonists call it "acetaminophen").

PS don't use aspirin in pain-relieving quantities; it thins the blood and can cause spontaneous hemorrhages. I tell patients all the time that it's no longer considered safe to take more than about 650mg of aspirin per day.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 01:35 pm (UTC)
I had never known that was what you called paracetamol! I am feeling somewhat better, another sleep should see me right for the plane home, but at least I was able to teach the class I came down to teach.

And I think it was only 500mg aspirin, I don't tend to use painkillers so a little goes a very long way. I can never decide whether liver damage or blood thinning is worse ...
Dedicated Escape Artist: Peter Headachejadzialove on August 22nd, 2008 01:06 pm (UTC)
My poor Brammers. *pets very gently*

I've been there before, many times, and I hope the aspirin kicks in soon, or else there will be many people without the skill of sewing. And who, I ask you, will bring back fashion after the apocalypse if no one can sew?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
I managed to teach the class, I had people squeeing over a rolled hem stitch. This is my idea of success ;-) Am having a burst of energy after a bath and a read. Will crash very shortly ...
violetagevioletage on August 22nd, 2008 01:38 pm (UTC)
Awwww. Poor thing, *massages temples very very gently, turns lights down and lowers voice to a murmur* feel better soon,
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
Oooh, that IS soothing, thank you.
&helena;uminohikari on August 22nd, 2008 02:06 pm (UTC)
Aww. *pets*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
Thanks, dear. That bunny is quite cheering :-)
trichinopoly ash: sweeney: grumpy lovealdehyde on August 22nd, 2008 02:14 pm (UTC)
awwh *hugs and gives you cup of yummy hot chocolate with marshmallows*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:12 pm (UTC)
Oh, perfect! Thank you!

*warms up her Reiki hands *

I'll send you some healing energy, my dear, and hopefully the headache will clear.

But yes, you are a lightweight. Yesterday I took codeine and ibuprofin and muscle relaxants for my headache. Honestly, BB, such an amateur!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:14 pm (UTC)
I am the Nancy Reagan postergirl, except unlike Nancy, I actually do usually say no. Of course, I then have these huge traumas and the hospital sends you home with mega pills, which J and previously my ex-flatmate have always eaten like sweets. The buggers.

Energy and long bath seem to have done the trick.
AMY 凛☆ラブ☆アタック: amicitomatoe18 on August 22nd, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
I hope you feel better soon! *sends you the fluffiest hug in the universe and then some more*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:14 pm (UTC)
Cheers, dear, the fluffiness has helped!
Pureblood Princessraitala on August 22nd, 2008 04:53 pm (UTC)
Ooo, nasty! I hope you feel better tomorrow. I've already let Sansa know, but if you want to chuck me the other brit pick, I'd be happy to take it off your hands.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:15 pm (UTC)
You are such a darling. I've made it 1/2 way through the other one and may well be up to finishing it on the plane home. I;ll email her mods and let them know it was my fault! *sends hugs* And I AM jealous, BTW ...
thebrandytookthebrandytook on August 22nd, 2008 08:37 pm (UTC)
*pets* Feel better. Get some rest and relaxation. Don't overwork yourself.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you dear! That icon has certainly made me feel better! And yes, it's the overwork ...
Stray: grey_huntergrey_hunter on August 23rd, 2008 11:27 am (UTC)
I'm spamming you. Read this. It's short. And I think it's better if you read the footnotes afterwards because otherwise it will give it away.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on August 23rd, 2008 03:17 pm (UTC)
Thanks, luv! Too daft to make my way through it tonight, but will read it over breakfast, it looks hilarious!
