The first week of school left me running on emergency batteries already Friday morning, and thinking of Lance Armstrong's interview the night before, I mumbled in my beard that I could also use some performance enhancing drugs right now to get through Friday. Extra strong coffee, a brownie? I made it alright but crashed in the evening. Now, the long weekend is ahead, it is bitterly cold, freeze your nostrlils shut cold, but I hope to recover and sleep in. Weekend ahoy!
