at the top of my to do list: don't have a nervous breakdown.

Four million other things follow it.

Don't worry, I'll still have time to play Scrabulous. Priorities, people.

THE NOTORIOUS HISTORY OF COFFEE

Coffee has always thrived on adversity. In the Arab world, where the coffee plan was first cultivated commercially in the fifteenth century, coffee was widely consumed by the populace but condemned by Islamic leaders for its supposed intoxicating effects. Coffee was banned repeatedly as it traveled from Constantinople to Venice and then to Vienna and other European capitals. The beans were initially sold by pharmacists and eventually in caf├ęs--which became notorious hotbeds of revolution and enlightened thinking.


HOTBEDS of REVOLUTION! ENLIGHTENED THINKING! Coincidence? I think not!

cranky.

Thinking about all I have to do between now and next Saturday (when we leave for Virginia) makes my head hurt.

I'm cranky.

one of those jobs where you travel around and try different foods.

You know, like what Anthony Bourdain does. I want me one of them.

Except, on my show no one will be able to hear me chew. I hate how on Bizarre Foods you can hear Andrew Zimern chew. I guess some people think it's more "immersive" but I just think it's gross.

fun, busy weekend.

Not as wild for me, it seems, as it was for others.

As far as I know, all attendees still have all fingers and toes... and no "rules" were broken.

Hope you all had fun!

THIS IS COLORADO... GO HARD OR GO HOME!!
