jet lag blues

It is now 2:30 AM in Helsinki. I’m have just raided the minibar, devouring a bag of almonds and downing a gin and tonic. CNN is playing on the TV. As much as I love traveling abroad to promote my books, this is the downside of hopping across the Atlantic — waking up fully alert hours before dawn, my inner clock telling me it’s time for dinner, and knowing that in six hours I will have to be at my best, looking bright-eyed and intelligent. Fat chance.

    Hi Tess,

    Wow, almonds, gin & tonic, and CNN.
    You really know how to live, Tess. Good luck in Finland. Raise some Hel(sinki).

    What would Rizzoli do in your situation? Or worse…. Warren Hoyt! yikes!

    You will be snug and back at home soon, all the sleep you need, with your donkeys.
