Today was the day I would seriously start the finishing of my paper on St Thomas Becket. I did not. I am so tired that the world seems to move in slow motion, my head wants to dangle from the shoulders, and I think my eyelashes are painted with lead. This is because I had to get up super early this morning; 9 am is for the mature part of humanity but not me! I also had serious problems falling asleep yesterday, probably because I knew I had to get up early. But I didn’t mind that much since I listened to 3 CD:s of the Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell audio book while lying in bed and trying to feel enthusiastic about the whole falling asleep-process.
Now I’m done with the whining. Let’s move on to something more fun!
I got new books today – again. Have you read any of them? Which should I start with?
I haven’t finished the last stash of books yet, but you can never buy too many books.
Except for a welcomed package full of books I also got a Swap-Bot letter with a recipe for Kentucky Chocolate Chip Pie. Sounds awesomely delicious! I have actually never had chocolate pie. I have only tried pies with various fruit/berry fillings. Now I just have to translate the American cooking terms to something I can work with. What is a “stick” of butter for example? xD Google will probably help me if I ask nicely.
Other than being tired and receiving mail I have visited an optician and gotten myself some contact lenses. It’s weird to see the world without the blurry black frame like I’m used to. It’s also weird to see so much of my own nose! Seriously, it looks twice as big now when I have no glasses blocking the view of it!
