First of all, the stupid Tooth Fairy did not show up the other night. This time I trusted her, but noooo, she just blew me off. All those years I covered for her and lovingly sneaked quarters under those little pillows. Where was she this time? Out drinking and carousing with the Easter Bunny? Making nice with St. Nick? Flitting around with a little Leprechaun?

I spent the last three days being lazy, and by that I mean lazy, lazy, lazy. With Zeus still in Berkeley I kicked back and did practically nothing. I did manage to drag my butt out of bed Sunday and Monday mornings for half-hearted runs but then promptly returned to doing nothing for the rest of the day. It's a good thing that Zeus has returned or I might still be sitting at the island eating Ghirardelli chocolate. Hey, if I can't have a caramel apple that will do just fine.

The images at the left were taken in The Mining Building on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley. There were three huge skylights with lamps hanging from the centers of each. To get the bottom image I had to lie down on the lobby floor on my back and scoot around until I got exactly under the hanging lamp. The building was constructed in 1918. It was amazing.
