I was soggy and hard to light this morning, which I don't really understand since I got to bed early enough last night after getting the laundry done. Anyway, I got out of the apartment with what normally would have been ample time, but Gallows Road was super clogged and very slow. Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately) work is going to be very slow today since I'm waiting for responses to e-mails and don't have anything else going on.
