It's 9.30, and I want to be in bed by 11 p.m. I COULD sit down with this nice new print-out of my first chapter and start what I hope will be my next-to-last round of edits.

Or I could instead make myself a martini and read trashy magazines until I fall asleep (not like I wasn't already falling asleep on the train home from Schmancy, even with five people around me speaking extremely loud, Hebrew-accented French).

Which one do you think is going to win out?

magazine / martini -- what do I win?

Alas for B*, I went with an unexpected Option C: gin-and-tonic and calling my folks. Though the magazine did make a 15-minute appearance until I fell into a deep sleep which featured--no joke!--a dream about taking care of someone's new hamster. (It didn't go well.)

Tell me about it! Today I can a) sort out my stupid awkward religious movement I'm researching, or start on the new Harpers & Queen. But unlike me, you've been working hard (you must have been do produce chpt 1), so treat yourself!

G&T is a perfect summer drink!
