springtime blues


Ah, spring. So beautiful, so alive, so... lethal. For allergy sufferers, it's the most painful time of the year. On the one hand, you want to enjoy the great outdoors, mother nature, blow some dandelions and have picnics on the grass. Sadly, about five minutes into it, you wish you could cut off your nose. Islamabad is especially brutal in this respect - its beauty in the spring is unparalleled. It is, also, the allergy capital of the world, and the excessive construction is making it worse, as I am witnessing from status updates by countless friends. Allergy sufferers, let us unite and... and... oh, sod it. All this sneezing has made me too tired to think.
