I left in time to take my friend ex-collaborator and soon-to-be-ex-housemate out for a meal. We were celebrating his birthday, which was to happen the following day. We'd celebrated his birthday with a curry in the same part of town a year ago... in fact, it was a year ago that our collaboration was about to become a scary reality.
It was probably a good curry. Some people drink to forget, I forget why I drink.
At home, I nearly fell asleep on the phone and managed to get myself fully asleep quite quickly. Sleep was to be precious.
