Not enough sleep and not enough water and certain other factors that occur on a semi-regular basis meant I was really, really drained today. I pushed myself a bit hard for lunch, heading out to an Ethiopian restaurant with Mike Tsang, his brother David, and their friend Nashira (sp?). It was nice meeting them, though, and I had interesting conversations over delicious food.
That meant I skipped the lunch nap I was thinking of having, though. A high-priority issue came up afterwards, so I didn't get much of an afternoon nap, either. By the time I finally got to nap, it was almost Toastmasters time. I called Paul to say I couldn't make it. I hope he passed the message to Ari.
I wasn't in the mood to cook or even to reheat pizza, but Calum happened to be in the area (he had a thesis meeting with Mark), so he showed me where I could get a nice, healthy soup. It was a bit of a walk, but the nap had left me a little bit better, and I drank plenty of water while I was there.
I felt better after the meal, although still a little out of sorts. I felt good enough to practice some Renaissance dance. I also stayed up talking to Clair and Charo, formulating a battle plan.
All I can say is: thank goodness for portable heating packs, or I'd probably have been totally out of it for the whole day.
