In a desparate attempt to get six loads of laundry done, I woke up this morning at 5:30. My brain was not quite ready to handle this transition, which is why I didn't do it very well. But this ungodly hour is the only time nobody else is using the washing machine downstairs, on the weekends at least, so I had to seize my oppportunity.

As soon as I was done, I passed out between freshly laundered sheets. Wonderful!

When I awoke, I got ready for a trip to Café l'Utopik. There, I found joenotcharles, vierge_en_trop, feygele sitting around a Scrabble board. With them was phoebus, introduced to me as a man distinguished by his choice of T-shirt.

There were some ill people sitting around the table, such that I could start to smell the disease. It hung in the air like a palpable vapour. I wondered what it was, until I noticed coughing. Oh dear, I hope I haven't caught anything. I always take forever to heal.

After the first game finished, iangurudata had shown up. Along with Liz and Jenny, whom I have never met before. I joined in on a game where I lost spectacularly, and incapable of spelling a word with two blank tiles. Benjamin spent at least ten minutes trying to figure out how to put it on the board, while everyone else packed up around him.

As a consolation, I treated myself to some ice cream. I'm not sure that was a brilliant idea, because I forgot to take lactese beforehand. Ah well, no pain yet, which must be a good sign.

I arrived home in time for it to be dark out. It seems to have turned out to be an excellent day: clean clothes, new people, and the return of my book. Huzzah!

I'm going to have to start going to these Scrabble dealies. With enough practice, maybe I can someday put up some competition for my parents - they're both lethal at Scrabble and demolish me every time.

I didn't do so well this time. I ended up with a depressingly small, double-digits, number of points.

Of course, I wasn't very coherent because I woke up at 5:30, but that's no excuse.

Sounds like we'd have been relatively well-matched then :)

Everyone should come to Scrabble - it's great fun!

As for the 10 minutes spent with your last tiles... I cannot believe it took so long to find a word, then find somewhere to put it. *shakes fist at the W*.

Oh, and having spent too much time with Liz and her sickness, I'm still healthy. So I'm sure you'll be fine...
