I've awakened in the dead of night here and cannot get back to sleep. Sleep, always the bane of my existence, is generally even more unpredictable when I am traveling.
Yesterday, as many readers know, was my birthday--agewise, my Crucifixion birthday or Rolling Rock birthday, depending on one's preferred reference. I appreciate all the e-mailed greetings I received. I continued my tradition of buying a palindromic gift for myself: this time treating myself to a laser level.
