Mar. 21st, 2006

I've been in London for about 6 hours now. I want to stay awake all day so I can adapt to the new time zone. Effectively, this means I've pulled an all-nighter and am embarking on my second straight day of wakefulness. There are some things I want to post about, thoughts I had on the plane, etc., but I'm in too much of a mental fog to post anything really coherent or meaningful. Until I'm properly rested and can think more clearly, know that I've arrived safely and am settling in.

Hooray!

I always find that the best way to combat eastbound jet lag is to do what you are doing; stay awake as long as you can, and crash in the evening. Then sleep like the dead for a while.

Good luck!

I'm about to go to bed, and I think the dead will look lively compared to me. It didn't help that I only slept 3 hours the night before and 4 the night before that. My body's quitting on me! But I hope to wake up in the morning refreshed and on GMT. ;)

Adjusting
I've heard that the use of a stimulant like caffeine in the morning at your new location aids in adjusting to the new time zone. My preferred stim is coffee, naturally, but cola or an APC (Aspirin, Phenacatin and Caffeine) tablet would probably do the job. Apart from that refinement, what you're doing is perfect for adapting.

Woo Hoo! You've arrived! Glad to hear you landed safely. Enjoy a nice pint of warm ale for me.

Reaction
Your mother's reaction to your voyage is to clean house. I finally had to go downstairs to get some peace.
