Whee! Did my exercises.

Can one of you americans reading this answer a question for me? How do US dress sizes compare to UK dress sizes? I know you use the same sorts of numbers but I'm pretty sure they differ - and I've read some stuff recently about women being 'size 2' which if it was UK sizes would be stick-women type of size. Ill and nearly dead. So I'm curious. To help, I'm a UK size 14 and I have a 30 inch waist and 40 inch hips ... what'd that make me in the US?

Hmm ... I hope I'm not acquiring a latex allergy. I've got little blistery-type spots on the backs of my hands, and I didn't realise till today that I'd not had any while I was working at home for 3 months. But now when I've been back in the lab for 3 weeks and wearing latex gloves again I've got these little spots back. Hopefully it's just coincidence coz latex allergies are sensitising allergies generally which means it can only get worse :( On one of my summer jobs at uni my boss had a bad latex allergy and we weren't even allowed to bring rubberbands into the lab in case she accidentally touched one :S

It might all be coincidence though. And there're non-latex gloves available that I can wear if I need to.

Just done my excerises - the most active thing I've done today. I also did some more thesis work, and I burnt a new CD-R for J of the Porcupine Tree b-sides ... hopefully this one will work in his work CD-Rom drive. And I sat and vegetated :) We didn't get up till nearly midday despite setting the alarm for 1030am, it went off, and we switched it off and went straight back to sleep.

Had a nice sausage casserole for dinner, and will maybe be able to turn the leftovers into a pasta sauce tomorrow.

The mood is just coz - I'm grumpy for no reason at all, I just am.
