I'm feeling quite a lot better, thanks to impossibly kind things said by purplerabbits, thechaosdiva and darkpooka and done by giolla and elfgeek, and inadvertant efforts from babysimon*, ergotia (yes, I will pay you to write it up) and blu_dragonfly. And half-advertant efforts from ciphergoth, who can't quite have predicted how much what he said would make me laugh. ~s~
So thank you, all of you.
And also thank you to the weather for making it a lovely day, to John Foxx for making fantastic music, and to Pentel for making pens in pretty sparkly colours.
Sorry I don't have anything edifying to say, but it's better than moping, right? ~g~
