Not quite hungover

'Have been feeling quite a bit tired, and a wee bit sick today; a cold has been pestering me for the past couple of weeks -- or perhaps its allergies. It's difficult to tell. While it might have been nice to pick-up some groceries, given the awful weather outside, I was more than happy to stay around the house and rest. I'm rather glad that I didn't make firm plans to attend the Bagel & Blues exchange in Montreal, or to attend the vernissage which swing-friend Nicole C. invited me to via Facebook.

'Doesn't make for a productive day at the office. A few of us went down to Mike's afterwards to spend my tab, though G.T. and J. had to head-off.

The evening course was quite interesting as well. We were broken-up into small groups, and challenged to try to reconstruct or remember at least three words which could be associated with the previous levels' instruction. We were all completely flummoxed, of course; 'might as well have been a classroom of teenagers. We got through it, though. The meditation instruction was quite interesting as well...
