I really need to stop falling asleep at 6pm. Which probably means I need to stop reading in bed and go outside and read so this doesn't keep happening. If not I wake up around 10pm feeling unsure of what to do with myself and with contact lenses suction-cupped to my eyes. And for some reason the contact in my right eye is extra keen on being bonded to my eye, even when I haven't even fallen asleep in them. So I just spent a good ten minutes in the bathroom squeezing my right eyeball. Really not pleasant. It always give you the fear that you're gonna put an eye out. So here I am typing with one contact in, one out. Also quite pleasant.
Waking up at 10, I hadn't had dinner. But I didn't exactly want to eat a huge meal now that it's so late. So I washed myself up a giant plate of blueberries. Really dismally low on food. Mostly because I want to finish my perishables by my flight tomorrow. And also because buying less here means I can buy more in Seattle! I fly out tomorrow evening. I love being on planes. I love airports. I love to be going places. And I've never been to Seattle. Gonna be a good week.
I've also started making tea with milk. I ordered this honeysuckle tea from Republic of Tea, and I'm in love. It's so light and perfectly unassuming, but the milk and raw sugar really bring it a new life. I'm also a crafty little thing and use one bag for two cups because it's time needed to steep is so short (30 to 60 seconds). I even went to back to watch Charlie's old How to Be English videos to get a few pointers. Can't do the sugar bit first because I have to boil my water in my mug in the microwave. No kettle. Unless I can put sugar water in the microwave? I dunno, maybe I can do that.
