I woke up this morning at 3.00am and couldn't go back to sleep, so I got up, got some coffee and fired up Ye Ole Laptop for some browsing. (Note the time stamps on the posts below). My hope was that I would get a little sleepy and manage to fall back into dreamland.
Anyway, after Laud/Mass, breakfast, and a turn around the cloister, I got to work. Lunch, recreation with the brothers, and. . .finally!. . .a little nap.
However, I am still both wired and tired. So, wired and tired that I completely misread this pic caption at one my new fav blogs, Big Government: "Today is also the anniversary of the Charge of the Light Brigade, from the Battle of Balaclava in 1854."
My first thought was, "Uh? The Brits attacked the Russians with sticky Greek pastries?"
My next thought was, "Oh, maybe the Russians were allergic to pistachios."
Now I'm looking for my travel size bottle of Benadryl.
