Monday Meh, Riddle Edition

Q:  What's red & white and red & white...?

A: Me!

Intelliwench, here, with a severe case of BBQ thighs thanks to several hours spent yesterday on a relaxing float down the South Fork of the New (blissfully sans institute participants this time!). The outing was in celebration of the end of this summer's obligatory stint in charge of the overall well-being of 44 graduate students (ages 29 - 69) and the 7 faculty who taught them. This year's participants were a very self-sufficient bunch, much to my relief. Instead, it was the faculty, the facilities, and the Bluto-Blutarsky-wanna-be graduate assistant who challenged my patience and good humor, not to mention my psychic abilities -- things WILL go wrong, it's just a matter of knowing ahead of time how to most expediently address these "challenges" before the boss finds out and blows a fuse. 

Anyway, I'm taking today (mostly) off to sleep in, do laundry, redeem a massage gift certificate, and see if I remember how to blog. So far, so good. 

So, aside from the heat in my loins sunburned legs, today's not really so meh after all.
