Sometimes I am utterly convinced of the entirely perverse nature of the universe we live in.  Why else, when I’ve got a crazy schedule for the next four or five days, would I fall ill with the first cold I’ve had in months?  Although DayQuil is keeping me alive, I’m functioning on the principle that [...]
