blogging from the blankets

So your friendly host meister has a naaasty flu going on.. this since saturday.
flu virus - yesterday
flu virus – yesterday
I got the whole ear, nose, throat stuff kicking off.. and the ‘HOT COLDREX’ seems to be slow to kick in.
Hence blogging from the blankets.
I also got a visit from the ARBO, the sick police, jeez, they’re fast to come out… but when the lady looked down at me on the sofa, blankets and hotdrink.. I think she felt pity as I wheezed and coughed my answers to her questions.
Its strange being ill with flu, hot sweaty dreams of warm honey and lemon, waking at strangely lit hours of the day/night. Thinking about things I should do while at home, but never actually remembering any of them as i wake/sleep.
Anyway.. must sleep or was that wake?

Free Pinhole camera

DIRKON ? THE 35mm PAPER CAMERA
“This Czech designed pinhole camera is made from carefully cut out and constructed paper (needs to be stiff and lightproof). The name comes from the Czech word for pinhole (dirka) and a pun on Nikon. Uses 35mm film. Remember that you’ll want a long exposure for a pinhole camera.”
