T minus 5

I'm back in the northern hemisphere, which means coping with winter weather—yes, even in Houston, January means flirting with freezing temperatures—with a steady diet of peppermint bark, Turkish coffee and goji berries.

Only five days left until the Constitution-violating full-frontal assault of sub-freezing temperatures that is winter in New England. Five days to unpack and repack, see friends and family, get a flu shot, work out at Life Time, organize my computer desktop, resuscitate or replace my ailing phone, frequent the driving range with Pops, go on a semiannual vitamin run, and check out a friend's newly opened restaurant. I also need to select courses for the new semester and apply for summer internships.

So much for the 休 in 休斯敦...
