I just realised what I miss about England. A good strong cup of tea. I woke up today and realised that it had been weeks since I'd tasted a cup of brown joy.
So we've been working hard, Elaine's been teaching both of us the things that she learned from other blogs and her own research. It's been difficult really since we've both been reasonably alright since arriving here and so haven't really got any way of practising the techniques. It's difficult to explain really. A lot about distinguishing between what's happening and what's inside your head because the G-Man decided to pay you a visit. I'll let her properly post about it. It's her work after all. I'll probably edit this post to link it later.
EDIT: Here you go.
The amusing thing about learning here is that Cam enforces breaks upon us, a random TV show here, Mario Karts there. He's not really flipping out much at all. He's still scared, all of us are, but I think with more of us here, he feels safer. Camaraderie I guess. As for Elaine, she's been pleasant enough, she has a pretty short fuse though. A pretty good thing for this, getting angry is better than getting depressed like Joel and I. One interesting thing I've noticed is that every day at 2PM she vanishes off somewhere and comes back an hour later. I asked Cam about it, he doesn't know really and I'm reluctant to press the subject with her. It's probably none of my business.
Needless to say, Team Labrat is training and will be ready to go soon enough.
Now to move onto the more perplexing and incredibly sad. Melissa has been having major problems and Dollmaker tried to kill Mystery. One thing that shocked me, and really, truly hurt was Jessica. If I were to encounter Dollmaker and Melissa had essentially been killed, right now this second, I don't know what I'd do. I'd want blood...
So yes, there are a lot of things on my mind right at this moment.
Keep safe, seriously.
