speechless in dublin

The last stages of the disease known to its sufferers as "Livejournal Lurgy" have manifested in a horrid new symptom: I have lost my voice. I am like Mavis, the vain wannabe-opera singer who sneaks out to a talent competition and gets stranded in the rain in that Mallory Towers book - "Mavis can't sing, she can only CROAK!" I can only croak, and croak feebly at that. I am speechless!

If you know me in real life, you will realise what a terrible thing this is for me. Of course, it is possibly a good thing for all my friends.

I shall spend tomorrow reading Sherlock Holmes stories and waiting forlornly for my voice to return once more.

Aaaaaw.

I think seriouspenguin would agree that Sherlock Holmes is one of the best ways to get over a cold.

I'm trying to write a letter to my piano teacher/choir director who's known me since I was eight warning her that I'm probably going to turn up to Nine Lessons and Carols with my Big Gay Girlfriend. It's hard! I think I want to swap with you!

Ah Mavis.

I love Sherlock Holmes. Must rescue my complete annotateds from the storage locker next time I am out there.

Oh no! You didn't sound so bad when we got to the pub, but then it started to sound like you were struggling, and -- alas! -- so sad. But at least you can enjoy the downtime -- I hope!

Alas! Surely your dulcet tones will return soon to delight us all!

I haven't lost my voice, so our lurgies are diverging. I have lost all will to emerge from under the duvet, though.

Oh no! And I was going to phone and chat about That Plan we were Planning at the weekend. Perhaps a little later. (Do you have Skype, by the way? For cheapness.)

Gnome has obviously nicked your voice as I think she has learned a second word, which appears to be "NO". Or rather "nananananaNANANANANANAAAAAAAAAAA!" Charming. She's been at it all day.
