It was warmer than cave water. Barely.
Also, we have attained Mordor. The Morannon is apparently a bagel joint in Balbriggan.
Mordor serves a very nice cappuchino dusted with cocoa powder.
Just what you need after a long chilly walk.
If you were wondering, I started my walk to Mordor 1612 days ago, and since then I have walked/swum/kayaked/biked 2290 miles, for an average of 1.4 miles a day.
I'm kind of glad to be done. *g*
Now it's back to working on this novelette that's due July 1, which I would like to get to 5,000 words today. Which requires some dedication, I admit, because I have about 1750 words written. Getting to the halfway point would mean that I can knock the rest of it out before I leave Europe, though, which would be good--because that would leave me only four 500-word book reviews and a 3,000 word article to finish by month's end. Oh, and two conventions and a little transatlantic travel.
It's a good thing I'm superhuman.
