“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.”–Mark Twain

The short weeks always get me–this time it’s the holiday Monday, but it happens the other way around as well. I get caught up in the day off and I forget the routine. I am a creature of habit, although I try and buck it as much as possible. I do like my schedule–even though my schedule is strange to most. We all have our methods, the way we get things done, and within this I like to believe (falsely) that I’m not predictable.
