Hi;

Sorry, I got called away from my machine. We can talk about them tomorrow.

I just finished eating and watching a documentary of sorts. I hope to be sleeping soon...

We are 8 hours behind you if you are in London.

Yes, it is 09:34 here so presumably 01:34 where you are. I am supposed to be in school but I get Thursdays off since they seem to have put lots of my free periods on to this day. They recommend that you come to school to do work anyway but I don't bother. Only disadvantage is it means I don't get to see people that often.

Hi;

It is 1:38 AM, Thanksgiving Day. Lots of food and relaxation!

Hmm, so it is... I thought it was on the 24th. I wonder if any of the American people I know are celebrating it.

It is always the fourth Thursday of the month. This year that is the 22nd.

Oh, I see... so this is the earliest possible date for Thanksgiving.

Yes, it is a little bit confusing and even over here people get the date wrong. Anyway, I did not get a Turkey this year because it is just me, so I will have some chicken instead.

Chicken might be better if you want to feel less sleepy. I heard turkey contains much higher levels of tryptophan.

Yes it does which does make some people sleepy. Actually I think the overeating is what really does it.

That is why I don't like it when my exams are so soon after Christmas. At least it can help you get some rest if you need it.

I do not overindulge in food. It does make you drowsy and how can you do math if you can not stay awake?

Lots of tea/coffee.

I like hot cocoa instead. What do you drink?

Tea, definitely.

What kind of tea do you like best?

**zetafunc.****Guest**

PG Tips, with milk and 1 or 2 sugars. My parents say I drink too much of it (2-3 cups per day but it warms me up during my maths).

I do not think I have ever seen that brand. What kind of tea is it?

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**zetafunc.****Guest**

Just standard teabags with ground tea leaves inside. It's called PG Tips since they only use the 'tips' of the tea plants. The teabags have a tetrahedral shape.

**zetafunc.****Guest**

I think it is the most common kind of tea people drink over here. I think they're only based in the UK. They originated in Manchester, England.

So it is a brown tea?
