This throat infection has taken my voice totally.

I'm gong to be unable to speak on the phone for a couple of days at minimum and possibly quite a bit longer.

When my voice goes badly, it can go for quite a long time.  (those who knew me back in my early days in fandom will remember the conventions where my conversations were almost entirely restricted to writing in notebooks)

Resting the voice is the only thing that will help.

Conversations are in clanger-whistles at present...

Here's the five questions I was asked by [livejournal.com profile] dougs. If you want me to interview you, leave a note in the comments.

1. Often, when something good happens, some group of worthy people gets casually omitted when the credit gets handed out. Pick one such good thing, one such uncredited group, and praise them.

2. Default behaviour on this meme is to ask questions which draw the victim out on their favoured topics. In this case, the strong temptation is to ask questions about the environment. Which questions do you often itch to be asked, but which never arise because people ask you questions about the environment instead?

3. Intermittent voice trouble, intermittent shoulder trouble. You have to choose -- you could pick a complete and permanent cure for one of them, in exchange for constant serious problems with the other. Which way round do you make the choice?

4. Imagine you'd had two daughters instead of two sons. Describe your life.

5. You're well known for your activities in B7 and SG fandoms. What are your other fannish obsessions? Any other shows you'd eagerly recommend to someone with time on their hands?

Bad timing

I'm going to see my nephews tomorrow and onto Novacon on Friday.

So when does my voice start to get really bad...

(not that it's ever really been normal since Worldcon, but it had been gaining ground)

Hey ho. I hope [livejournal.com profile] dougs's lipreading is upto scratch... There'll probably be even less voice left after I've told stories to two little boys.

[livejournal.com profile] waveney and [livejournal.com profile] exalted_mugwump were out working today, so I had a day with no temptation to use the voice. Got the front lawn mowed, weeded a good chunk of the rockery, washed lots of dishes, did some study for my Open University short course and made some progress on rewriting a story (erasing the serial numbers is turning into a complete rewrite). This evening, I made some progress in teaching Henry how to fingerspell. No point in me knowing how to do it, if he can't read it.
