Greatly enjoyed the speech last night in Campinas. But paid the price for starting at about my normal Anglo Saxon bedtime—9:45 pm. So I finished at 11 pm, chock full of adrenaline as usual; hence I didn't get to sleep 'til 2:30 am (my wake-up for flight to Belo Horizonte was 4 am).
Am genuinely peeved at our President. Ever since he passed Condi the immortal "I gotta go" note at the UN, all I can think about before a speech is if I've gone enough so I won't have to go; my last act before hitting the stage these days is a loooooong stop at the loo!
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
