I don't feel well, but there are too many items on my 'to do' list to dwell on it. If I can work, it's not a problem anyway.

My brother's operation will be on Monday. Understandably, I'm nervous.

The research looks quite promising. I'm collaborating on three projects simultaneously, so that's fun. They combine some of my favourite feelings: being lost, "don't panic", "things are about to click" and bursts of ingenuity. I can definitely see why people are burning out, but I relish the challenge.

Health-wise, I might need meds for my low blood pressure after all. I feel, almost constantly, physically tired and light-headed. The checkup is in February, but I'm bracing myself for it already. Compressive socks don't work, just make me feel like I'm someone's grandma.

I’d bet a hefty sum that you’re sharper on your off days than me when I’m at the top of my game.

Hang in there. Best wishes for next Monday.

About that 'sharp' thing: yesterday I was trying to remember what 'Wyoming' means. Seriously. I completely blanked it as a state, kept thinking its a verb because of the '-ing'. In a text in Polish. About Utah.

Can I get S-M-R-T?

We all Wyome from time to time.

I haven't the first clue about anything below the scale of countries anywhere in Europe. Finally going to visit Norway in a few months for a team meeting, never been on your side of the Atlantic :).

That's a Simpsons reference, yah? Even the new stuff that people diss on is still pretty good, from the few episodes I've seen.

Cool! Norway is a great country. I only got to experience Oslo and (mostly) the Old Town in Fredrikstad but loved everything about it.

That said: google Vinmonopolet. It confused a lot of people I know who visited Norway. :P
