I’m off to Helsinki tomorrow for a break from St. Petersburg and all its little frustrations. I will return refreshed and un-cynical. :-)

I have a head cold. Again. Well, at least this time it was two months between colds. After being sick three times in a four week span in March/April, I have been faithfully taking my vitamins, washing my hands and using hand sanitizer all the time. But I forgot my vitamins a couple of days last week. And so I suffer. When did I become such a sickly person?
