On the 12th day in Alva, guess what I did see?
12 flavours of ice cream,
11 kinds of pizza,
10 battered Mars bars,
9 deep-fried mushrooms,
8 pans for scrubbing,
5 deeeaaaaaad cops,
4 hours of sleep,
3 bottles of wine,
2 sore backs
and a portion of fish 'n chips!
Now for my, much less lyrical, list:
9000: words written, each.
3: bottles of wine, between us.
3: full days of writing.
1: visit to the milk shak ebar
2: pans of lasagna consumed
1573: cups of coffee consumed. probably each.
4: flavours of ice cream consumed, each.
1 1/2: dvds watched (poor PS I Love You... too scratched.)
2: bizarre graffit spottings
1: theological debate finally settled (it was the egg).
2: awesome songs composed, including the one above.
1: books read, each (mine--fiction; liz's-- thesis-related)
4: workspaces organised and used
and for the unknowns:
unknown: belly laughs.
unknown: distance walked the length of Alva.
unknown: pounds gained from eating fish 'n chips, no-bake cookies, and other goodies
unknown: birds watching me... (thanks a lot, hitchcock.)
unknown: dishes washed (because Liz did most of them. Thanks.)
unknown: how in the world I would have been as productive AND had as much fun if Liz hadn't come.
