I got off the elevator to go home after work yesterday, and there was a crowd in the lobby. A camera crew was taping Alberta Premier Ralph Klein, who was giving a speech about something or other. L was waiting for me on the mezzanine level, so I had to circle around the camera crew to get to the escalator. We don't see Ralph around town much nowadays.

Then I found myself on top of a large balloon or globe, looking through the same magazines. That didn't seem unusual, until I started to think about how I could get down without hurting myself (the globe was several stories high). About that time I started to wake up.

I'm starting to feel much better. I was pretty much wiped out all week by whatever bug I had. I had no energy, and little interest in doing anything.
