Day 296

Wednesday | December 19th, 2012


I don’t know when I got home last night. I don’t even remember going home, getting home, putting a key in my home. Who knows. I remember bothering Meow a lot. I remember I had a good time. I remember that I broke the rules (don’t drink Cass, don’t drink beer, drink water, don’t be tired). I had a nice time though. And I wasn’t about to stop drinking and go home just so I could spend a third night rolling in restless sleeplessness.

I didn’t drink enough to sleep all day and I didn’t drink enough to be hungover, but I did sort of drag … all … day … at least … for the parts of the day that I was actually awake. Hangovers don’t beat you down like this.

I was up before 13.00 and showering for too long; then napping on the couch; then on the (warm) floor at Meow’s insistance; then I was up to walk the dogs (that ramyeon wasn’t gonna go buy itself!); then I was home eating my precious, my precious hangover recovery ramyeon and drinking the soup and thinking at length how revolting it all was; then I was sleeping on the floor again. It wasn’t until a few hours later when I woke drenched in sweat, hair soaked, clothes damp and chilled, that I had been plowing through a bit of flu all day.

All and all, I was awake from about 13.00 – 14.00, 16.00 – 17.30, and not again. Wish for prolonged sleep, get prolonged sleep … I guess.

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
