Re: Anybody else take Feb 26th off work?

I'm lucky enough (in this case) to have Wednesday/Thursday as my regular weekend because I work in hospitality. I did get a flat tire on my way home from a class this morning though, and didn't make it home until this afternoon. I felt like that was my warning... So I"m waking up next Wednesday...

Re: Nipple care on the playa?
