Idle

Took a 90-minute lunchbreak today, walked downtown and had salmon steak and Bratkartoffel with a glass of French white wine at a semi-fastfood place, and very nice it was too. Trees are leafing out all over — and the dandelions are up!

After such a lovely break, I am now finding it very difficult to get back to work. Be strong! I only need another 1.5 hours to make my weekly target. Spent the whole of yesterday plus an hour Tuesday working on a single page of the M√ľnsters' Wiki, the longest and most complicated piece yet. I was absolutely exhausted at the end of it, I found myself yestereve sitting around in SL lost for words. Imagine that: moi, unable to find le mot juste.

I've now spent a week back at Rose Street (and for that matter back at work) after the better part of three weeks off, what with London and bronchitis, and have come to a conclusion. At least some of my discomfort and annoyance here has a biochemical basis: too much caffeine and sugar. It makes me irritable and unconcentrated and vaguely queasy. I am considering making a thermos of Yogi Tea to bring with me each morning, to cut down on my coffee consumption. As for the sugar, I could simply stop going to the local bakery every single morning (and most afternoons too).

Enough. Onwards and upwards, get those damned 90 minutes done.

Shabbat shalom, my dears. I wish you all a delightful and Springlike weekend.

Nice to have goals at times. Also great to meet them. Good work.

Biochemically, that makes a lot of sense, yes. I'm so proud of you, you're becoming so better at pampering yourself properly!

SL often leaves me speechless, especially the conversations at newbie points. ;)

Shabbat shalom!

Shabbat Shalom y'all (that's how they say it in Florida.) Please say a prayer for the traveler: I hope to be home in the Holy Land by Sunday.

Oh, yeah. 'Cause "yogi tea" (whatever the hell that is) will satisfy your quit reasonable craving for coffee.

I'm trying to cut down on sugar too, Udge. Good luck!
