1) The quiet of an hour in bed, reading the news. In five minutes I have to get in the shower; in 30 minutes I have to leave for the office for the last day before Reunions begin.
2) For many years now I've sent this video clip to my colleagues early in the week of Reunions. "But you keep your feet on the ground, and your head on those shoulders of yours, and gpo out and Sawyer . . . you're going out there a youngster, but you've got to come back a STAR!"
2a) No lie, this tune stays in my head the entire weekend. Except for Pops, when Arthur Fiedler's arrangement of "Strike Up the Band" takes over.
3) For those of you used to getting here via a link on ye Fycebykke . . . I just can't deal with ye Fycebykke this week.
