I'd take a klonopin but I don't want to sleep through the other readers and I don't particularly want to have to put up with klonopin visions when I meditate this evening so I will resist the urge to medicate the nerves. it's always kind of nice to ride the adrenaline afterwards anyway although the whole deal is 2-1/2 hours long and I imagine I am reading close to first so I might be feeling a little drowsy by the end anyway. there is a break and I'm bringing coffee. I'd like to make it through to the reception following just so I can stand around and feel completely outstripped.
the thought occurs that no food may be allowed in the theater. lord I should have brought my chocolate espresso beans. not that they aren't food, but they can be hidden in the bag without getting everything wet.
in a few minutes I will put my shirts back on and go over there. I took all my shirts off to let the sweat dry as I usually do when I'm fairly certain no one else will be in the office. my jacket, shirt, tshirt and brow-wiping rag are draped all over the furniture in here. a couple of cats and I'd be right at home.
time to go.
