Today's news of ending the ridiculous government shutdown lifted me back into the saddle. The 11th hour conclusion to the sixteen days worth of MSNBC that I've just consumed, though not as riveting as the conclusion of Breaking Bad, was a good one. Damn, in hindsight, I could have watched Breaking Bad all over again! Regardless, I am instantly realizing my desperate need for a shave, my jammie pants have overstayed their welcome in my spot on the couch, I am realizing that I've consumed more than my fair share of beer in the last sixteen days, and above all, I am realizing that my body and mind still have a passionate need to wake up in the early morning and go help make something happen in the scientific community which I serve.
I'm going back to work tomorrow!
