I have had two - count 'em, TWO - ChocoEspressos at lunch today courtesy of Central Library and I'm actually starting to regret it. Whoa boy, my brain's going at a hundred miles an hour. I can't concentrate at all. Coffeecoffeecoffeecoffee!

What has led me to this state of caffeinated lunacy, you ask? It can only be one thing.

The Kelza has started writing again. And she's discovered that it's a Very Good Idea to do some during her lunch break, at Central Library, which is just about two stones throws away. I measured it today and that sounds just about right.

Last night, disturbed by the sweltering heat, I managed four pages. One before Top Gear, then another three between 9 and 11pm. This was with an approximately 200-word book review for work. I went to bed, as you do, wrote another page this morning, then two at lunch.

I feel like I can manage another hundred pages on this book easily before I burn out again. I must use all the energy I have, whether it be my own natural motivation or spurred on by the glorious coffeecoffeecoffeecoffee.

So! The weather! It's been fiendishly hot these past two days, but as I write it's starting to cool down again. According to the Metro (i.e. that there free newspaper I get on the bus every morning when all the copies haven't been pilfered) we're in for some severe weather later tonight, including thunder, large-sized hail, gales of up to 70mph or more and possibly tornadoes! Jolly good!

As most of you already know, I am a huge weather geek. News like the above sets most people worrying or panicking - as for me, I'm whipping out my camera and stationing myself on the roof. I love extreme weather.

God, I'm so caffeinated and hungry and tired that I keep hallucinating that people are texting me. Is that crazy? It probably is. It looks like my phone screen keeps lighting up. My phone's set to vibrate though so I'll know if anyone texts. Hopefully.

If I haven't gone crazy by that point.

Random Thoughts as I Write

09:47PM: Have an interview with Lazuli at the end of the book! Of course! That's a nifty way of showing where he might be, one year after reality gets fixed!

09:53PM: Maybe I should try this coffee... anything I put in this flask these days tastes a bit off...

09:54PM: Hmmm. Strong, with a weird biscuity aftertaste. It smells weirder than it tastes, though. And this time, it isn't soapy. For this, I am pleased. I've also only written just over half a page. It's been nearly an hour, now. Bugger.

10:12PM: Wa-hey! A page! Five more to go! I'm turning my phone off to minimise distractions. Not that it's working well, anyway.

10:44PM: Nearly 11, nearly two pages. Oh, wait, two pages exactly because of that little bit I wrote to polish off the page I started on. And the coffee's not all that bad!

11:00PM: There comes a time where every portable CD player requires new batteries. Mine's time is soon, and it had to happen when we're all broke.

11:20PM: Three pages! Currently listening to Matching Mole's 'Gloria Gloom'.

09/08/10 @ 12:37AM: So technically I'm done for the night. Just completed my sixth page. I want to go to bed now as I'm exhausted, but I don't much fancy shifting everything back onto my desk! I listened to 'Cunning Stunts' before 'Little Red Record', and then followed it up with 'Whatevershebringswesing'. It's as wonderful as ever. How long has it been since I've listened to Kevin Ayers? Answer: too long.
