Even more jet lagged

I was up the entire night, sleeping maybe two hours because my room was like a sauna (and it smelled like dirty socks which I couldn't figure out- it smelled that way when I arrived). I just laid there until the alarm went off and had a quick breakfast before the meeting. The meeting organizers were fascinated by this little gizmo's where we could "vote" on different things and text comments to the electronically. It was very annoying because they kept having us rate everything and text responses which took forever and seemed a huge waste of time. I just kept looking forward to the hour and a half lunch break when I planned to take a nap before the afternoon session. Just as it was time for lunch, they announced there were two lunch groups and I was in the bad group.
After the meeting finished, a group of us decided to go out to eat right away so we could try to go to bed early. We walked through the gardens and over to Harrod's where I bought some haggis! I was very excited, it said it served two-three and was microwaveable.
We then had a good Indian dinner of way too mush curry, naan, and rogan josh before calling it a night. I was careful not to drink alcohol or caffeine so I would sleep. But unfortunately it was a repeat of the night before except this time I didn't sleep a bit. Frustrated, I wandered the halls of the hotel without my contacts in from 1:30-3:30. Some of the night staff asked me if I was a doctor which really confused me until I realized I was wearing my scrubs for pajamas. I used the internet but as I reported before just as I was finishing my blog there was an energy surge and everything disappeared. So I gave up and went back to my room.
