What I'm Doing 13:
UNDER MILK WOOD by Dylan Thomas (of course). I'd not seen it before. At first it seemed overwrought - all those 'bible-blacks', 'sloe-blacks' - every colour had a noun attached (though probably this seemed original and brilliant when he did it - but it has been copied somewhat) - and the people seemed caricatures... but after a while I realised that was probably the point, and enjoyed it.
What I'm listening to:
CHASING CARS by Snow Patrol (from the album EYES OPEN)
One of those albums that seems familiar when you hear it - because you have. Anyway, I like it.
What I'm Reading (the best thing):
THE VIRUS HUNTER by C J Peters
I'm finding out so much. The vaccine for Argentine Hemorrhagic Fever was created by Julio Barrera Oro in 1985. This virus kills about 30 % of the people that contract it and is spread by contact with the droppings of a small mouse. When the virus was isolated, almost simultaneously by two opposing institutions in Buenos Aires, the competition for 'who found it first' was so severe that Julio Barrera Oro inoculated himself with this potentially lethal virus to show his team really had found it. A few days later he developed the fever. Luckily he survived.
What I'm Writing:
Nothing... but tomorrow maybe I shall again.
