  1. That you can write something like this, and then have a productive day afterward, is incredible to me.

    I would spend hours poring over some ditty about trees and lakes and mountains, but you are working with DRY ASS NEWS MATERIAL and you still come up with something engaging.

    How do you not just go take a nap for 6 hours.
