That’s better…

A sleep update from Singapore: I managed to get more sleep last night...a lot more. I was unconscious by 8:30pm and didn't wake up until 4:50am. Epic, uninterrupted sleep. Save for some bizarre dreams about changing career to become a stage magician. Just couldn't keep my eyes open after about 8:20pm...even though I had Game ...
