Here is the rub. It's 7.15 am. I have a left butt cheek that has the lump the size of a tennis ball on it which is both painful and making it hard to sit. I have a lot of study to do. I won't make pump because of the large lump the size of a tennis ball on my left butt cheek (not that it hurts to walk, it's a bit uncomfortable). I was going to cook lunch for the week, but I don't have any paprika - I have all the other spices, but not paprika. I have a lot of study to do.
It'scome down to doing this meme, courtesy of Sunday Stealing, or going to get some paprika. And icing my arse cheek and taking some nurofen (advil).

Bring anyone dead back to life, who would it be?
I don't believe in bringing people back from the dead, but I really wish Philip Seymour Hoffman and Alan Rickman didn't die. I mourn the films they never made,
I also wish that my niece could be happy and healthy and still on the planet. She died four months ago. It feels like days in some ways, years in others. 16 is not a life.
