Concluding the mystery

The judging for the In The Bag challenge was held earlier this evening. I came second in the Mystery category by popular vote, and got the Judges choice both with this shot, which it seems I neglected to show you with the rest of them, and an honourable mention for the set as a whole. Given that last year's format played completely to my strengths in being a set of quirky still-life style pics, and this theme totally didn't, being portraiture of a sort, I think that's an incredibly good result.

Many many thanks to my models also - this was great fun for me, and I think it was for them too.

In other news, the disruption to my sleep patterns, such as they are and what there is of 'em meant that I didn't get any coffee today, which means I have a thumping headache now. I think it might be time to cut back on the caffeine a bit, but not cold turkey like this.

Congratulations on your fine showing. I've found that Excedrin (tm) works really well while cutting back on coffee. Don't know if it's available there in the Antipodes.

That would be me who left this comment. Sorry, LJ appears to have logged me out overnight.

I don't know if we have Exedrin here, but we do have various OTC analgesic-with-caffiene combos available. I improvised, chasing down a couple of paracetamol (acetaminophen to you) with a cup of milky coffee. It worked well enough for me to get to sleep.

I've been drinking more coffee. It used to be a double espresso every time I went to the Borough Market. But then I started going to 3-hour lectures for my course. An espresso is generally required in the break. Although now I've started getting my coffee before class, since a coffee shop opened just down the road and they gave me a free coffee one day. It's drinkable in the time I take to walk from the coffee shop to uni.

Good On You. They Mystery series is delightful.

Been contemplating cutting down on caffeine myself. Thing is, don't really drink much as it stands. However, I feel it on the day after a night shift, when I don't drink any in the morning after work because I want to sleep a bit.
