Things I Learned Today

That I’m not a light packer, but it’s not entirely my fault. Bread Loaf package materials advised attendees to pack light clothes as well as warm, sunscreen and insect repellent as well as raincoats.

That I can’t sleep on planes no matter what precautions I take, including the ingestion of (legal) drugs.

That it’s easy to get dehydrated here at Bread Loaf because of the altitude. And that there are few water fountains on campus.

That Vermont law prohibits open containers of alcohol from all public areas. Drink indoors.

That, despite claims to the contrary, wireless access doesn’t really expand to the cottage where we’re staying. So I have to cut this short.
