0 america in the UK

the plan was initially to sleep peacefully last night and then wake up and read about hillary this morning.

then i remembered that, in 2011, k.clen and i woke up pre-dawn to watch the royal wedding. a circumstance significantly less important and a realization that revealed my priorities to be all out of wack.

and so i set my alarm.

for what would have been two hours after HRC's speech, because- after 3 1/2 years of living in the UK- i inexplicably chose now to forget how to calculate time differences and figured out the difference between 4 a.m. UK time and 10 a.m. EST rather than the difference between 10 p.m. EST and morning in the UK.

both of which would have been wrong anyway as i actually needed to wake up at 3 a.m. which i did, automatically, so disaster was averted. history was seen. i am not someone who prioritizes weddings over milestones for women. huzzah.
