Today has been very slow for me. I got to bed at 2.30am after a really nice dinner at a friends place that, typically, was flowing freely with booze. I made a conscious effort to pace myself and did a reasonable job, but only managed 5 hours sleep before the sun streaming in around the edges of my blinds woke me up. Coffee, coca-cola and mcdonalds have slowly, very very slowly seen me return to some semblance of normality along with the sunshine absorbed while out getting coffee etc.

The dinner party was great, it’s a nice bunch of guys. A couple of times late in the evening the conversation ventured into territory that had potential to become heated but thankfully didn’t. It’s a sign of a good mix of people that those conversations can be challenging in a good way without anyone getting angry.

I think my couch is calling for some more slothful activity.
