I slept yesterday until 1:45, which is late even for a night person like me. It means my body is healing and needs rest. I feel much better. I have to adjust my body clock anyway. After only a few weeks my work schedule is already about to change. I'll be doing two day shifts and only two closing shifts. I'll be having weekend nights off for the first time in over a decade, which will be totally bizarre.
Yesterday also brought with it the start of my favorite holiday here in New York. Yes friends, Fleet Week is once again upon us. Hundreds and hundreds of fresh-faced young sailors, some with a rudimentary grasp of English, have descended on my fair city. How do you say "whip it out" in Russian?
