Case of the Mondays

Having just been absent from work for 5 days, I have the same feeling that pervades school when you return from winter vacation, and everyone is somehow insanely tired and perhaps ready to take a vacation from the vacation. My liver is certainly going to be taking some time off - many many thanks to Sprecher Brewery. We sampled some very tasty beer in generous quantities for a whopping $3, with commentary from the good ole' boy next to us who didn't understand the appeal of the 'motor oil' we were drinking and believed a REAL party only involved Michelob, Coors & Bud. His daughter seemed to have no problem w/ the offerings, though.

Other fun highlights...getting stopped on the quiet street by the state park by a 93 year-old woman who wanted us to help her stop her smoke alarm from beeping (needed a new battery)...the lovely, loud, racousness of a 30-person Thanksgiving at my Aunt & Uncle's house...the blowing snow that didn't accumulate (first of the season)...seeing my Grandparents...

Then I came home and went to bed and slept and slept and managed to be social on Sat. night, and then slept some more.

Only 24 days 'til the BIG vacation starts! Woo-hoo!
