I got home a bit over two hours ago, but I've just been reading back through lj, playing with Tabitha and not unpacking. I figure I can do that tomorrow night, if I survive work.

Surprisingly, I slept for nearly six hours on the flight back from London. After watching a movie and reading a bit, I thought I'd try to take a nap. When I woke up, the flight map said "Time to destination: 2:10" and they'd started the final meal service. I imagine I slept right through the mid-flight snack, if indeed there was one!

The wonderful world of reading has sucked me right back in. One of the things I'd asked my mother to bring me was "The trilogy of books by Robertson Davies that includes The Lyre of Orpheus*," which she wrongly took to mean the Deptford Trilogy. No matter, I all but devoured the first one (Fifth Business) over the course of my trip and managed a good chunk of the second one on the bus back to Kichijouji. Excellently written, though nothing so far has made me laugh out loud in sheer delight as did the dinner party chapter in The Lyre of Orpheus, and I can't wait to plough through the rest of his works, as soon as I can get my hands on them.

That's all for now, I've got two episodes of Game of Thrones to watch. And then sleep, blessed sleep.

* Turns out the trilogy I meant is the Cornish Trilogy
