Both By Chance & Circumstance

BBCAC 091012 
20 pages, 6" x 4" by ?, the usual from GPO Box 4201, Melbourne VIC 3001, AUSTRALIA 
Hard to get past that awful title. Both by chance and circumstance? Ugh.
But it's the guts of this perzine that make it interesting. The anonymous ziner writes about her troubles getting a job since she has something called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which sounds like fun but is not. If CFS wasn't enough, she also has dyscalculia, a mathematical form of dyslexia. Plus she doesn't have a car, and she admits to having a bad attitude. It's all very entertaining in a grim and awkward sort of way, like my favourite show, Embarrassing Bodies.

A friend of my Dad's had chronic fatigue syndrome and it really knocked him around for a couple of years. How he gradually came back was through lawn bowls. Because this bloke had such a competitive spirit, he ended up becoming one of the best players in the club!

EVERY single time "Embarrassing Bodies" comes on, I vow I won't watch it, and EVERY single time I do ... ;)

I love it! But it creeps Jojo out, especially the breast reductions where they cut the nipple off and sew it back on again.
