I was one of those insufferable teenagers. Not just because I carried a cloud of angst around with me, to act as the ultimate accoutrement to my entirely black-bedecked body.

I don’t sleep particularly well so I appreciate it more than most.  I half expected to find halls blocked off but I went down and grabbed some food at the lovely breakfast buffet that Network of Strength put on.  I love a buffet where you can get fresh fruit, yogurt and BACON.
