Greatly enjoyed the speech last night in Campinas. But paid the price for starting at about my normal Anglo Saxon bedtime—9:45 pm. So I finished at 11 pm, chock full of adrenaline as usual; hence I didn't get to sleep 'til 2:30 am (my wake-up for flight to Belo Horizonte was 4 am).
Am genuinely peeved at our President. Ever since he passed Condi the immortal "I gotta go" note at the UN, all I can think about before a speech is if I've gone enough so I won't have to go; my last act before hitting the stage these days is a loooooong stop at the loo!
