when i was a teenager i needed LOTS of sleep. wasn't til my 20s that i started to not sleep much. erm, there may have been colombian stimulants involved.
i was a night crawler for most of my life. i've cured this by making myself get up early. even on days off i am usually up by 7. because of that i am too bushed to be up all night.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
