Well, last night after I posted I made myself some macaroni and cheese, puttered around for a while wanting to read something but not being interested in any of the books I could find, and finally settled on a collection of Chinua Achebe short stories titled Girls at War and Other Stories. I drew myself a nice hot bath, took a dose of (antihistamine-based) sleeping pills, and read a couple of the stories. Then I went to bed AND SLEPT! It’s a miracle!
I’m a little groggy this morning, but it feels like ordinary timezone-adjustment grogginess, rather than shambling-undead-corpse-that-yearns-for-the-rest-of-death grogginess. So that’s an improvement. Plus I have Chinua Achebe stories to read on the T, and I’m getting together with lilbjorn for dinner in the North End tonight.
