Magic #79

by

Amethyst shook her head, and turned away, sneezing again she emitted another cloud of greasy black smoke. "Sorry." She sniffed.

"The boy has no aura, he just 'is' if you understand my meaning. I'm truly at a loss, and would very much like to hear what the oracle has to say about him." She wiped her nose. "Intrigued, indeed. There may be interesting times ahead. Hmm?" She blew her nose loudly into the giant handkerchief she had brought out. "I'd be more interested in my ingredients first though. I think I'm running a temperature, and that's never a good thing!"

    Love the mental image of her both wiping and blowing her nose! Eeeew! 🤢

    Just imagine a 5 ton 3 year Old with a runny nose 😏 It's gonna be messy, and toxic. That handkerchief is the size of a large beach towel! 😉

    Finally caught up with this. I'm still seeing this as a CGI-animated feature movie. Too bad I don't have any connections in Hollyweird or I'd hook you up, Jeff!

    Thanks, Christopher! As it happens, one of my friends is an award-winning Special effects person. In fact, he's been working on the new "His Dark Materials" series about to air and is currently working on series 2. He's also been prodding me for content to pitch to Netflix. Apparently they're looking for new content. Sadly though, it's unlikely to be this.

    Sorry to all for being off the air. Jamie's no doubt seen me skulking around Facebook, but I've been a "Bit off" 😅

    Sorry about you being a ‘bit off’ Jeff. I hope you’ve a period of being ‘not off’ now. 🤞

    Hope you're back on again now Jeff. I've seen the trailer for HDM and it looks amazing, it'll be a hell of an effort to get that book on screen, but judging by that trailer they've done a superb job. Anyway, all the best to you mate, hope you're keeping good!

    Thanks Drew. Much appreciated. At least I can type a coherent sentence today. These storms are a nightmare right now. Damn you Jet Stream! Damn yoouu! 😉

    And thanks, Neville, too. The weather is not doing my brain any good right now. That darn little lizard left-over keeps freaking out every time a storm comes across the country and giving me a migraine.

    Sorry about that Jeff. I know you’re very migraine prone; it sounds awful. You’d think they’d have a decent treatment if not cure by now given that they can get to Mars!

    Pah! Mars, shmars. That's just rocket science! The brain is a fickle and unkind mistress when it wants to be! 😉

    I've probably mentioned this before Jeff - if so, sorry.
    Have you tried Feverfew? I used to have a lot of migraines, especially when I was a teenager. Then my uncle told me about Feverfew so my mother (who also had migraines, usually brought on by the weather and/or stress) grew some in the garden. You eat a leaf a day - and it's disgusting!
    These days you can get tavlets from health food shops, thankfully :)
    The point is, it worked. Didn't cure them, but for me it stopped the major in-bed-all-day migraines and reduced the number of "smaller" migraines.
    Might be worth a try?

    Thanks for the suggestion, Drew. I know about feverfew, it's been amongst my pharmaceutical cornucopia in amongst all the other custom molecular medicine ;)
