Bonsoir, TWibe. This will be short, as I haven't had time to get something together for you this week. (Tsk. I know. I can't help it, though; work has usurped my life for the time being. I hate when this happens—seriously, I'm against this idea of work taking precedence over all else—but sometimes it can't be helped. You gotta do what you gotta do. Still, if I have to spend many more nights at my office with only the janitorial staff as company, wiping vending machine Cheeto dust off of my fingers and slapping Post-it note reminders all over my desk, I might actually go insane.)

So today's Deuce Club is just a free-for-all. Talk about whatever's on your mind, tennis-related or not. And if you can't think of anything, try this: Tell us what you're doing right . . .  now. What are you looking at? Listening to? Thinking about? Are you talking to someone, watching TV, surfing the Web, or just staring at the computer screen?

Me? I'm typing this, of course. Cleaning out my Outlook inbox. Scoreboarding the Murray-Monfils match. Listening to Goldfrapp's Felt Mountain album on Playlist.com. Eating grapes (no more Cheetos, thankyouverymuch - sorry, jb).

Doesn't feel like it in the least, but I guess I'm multi-tasking . . .

Your turn, TWibe!

Sorry for the lack of material this week, but assuming I don't vanish into some sort of work abyss, we have quite a bit of fun to look forward to here in the DC for the remainder of '10. We still have our ATP awards to give out, and though we dropped the ball on this last year, I'm determined to resurrect the TW poster awards. Maybe we'll do another YouTube post, and don't forget our annual virtual holiday party. If you have any other ideas, feel free to let me know in the comments, on Twitter, or via e-mail. Happy weekend, TWibe!
