In this last hour, I felt as if vampires had been at me, both mind and body. I was on the verge of wimping out, so I let my Tough & Cool Inner Bookworm take over.
You sleepy? she asked.
Well, that’s tough. You’re not getting any sleep till we see this thing through. You hungry?
Yeah I could eat, I told her.
Well, that can be negotiated, she said. So I/we? walked back to Dorm Sweet Dorm and ate a bowlful of kimchi and rice topped with a fried egg.
Magic. I’m revived. No more of the drained feeling. But just to be on the safe side, I topped it all off with a piece of Russell Stover candy — dark chocolate with coconut underneath.
I’m back visiting blogs and cheering. Slow but diligent progress has brought me up to the M’s. I’m starting to worry that I can’t see everyone’s blog/comment/trawl for interesting book titles before my cheerleading shift ends, 65 minutes from now. But I’ll give it my best shot.
