    2. Africa?

    4. Silly answer: Torpor involves vampires. Real guess: I think torpor is forced by cold, where hibernation is more voluntary.

    5. Germany?

    2) Venus.

    3) Justin Bieber.

    4) Coma is the difference.

    5) New Jersey, like Häagen-Dazs ice cream.
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    And, if I may, what long weekend are we talking about here? Or is this a special "reveal dedicated holiday"?

    Varick is in TriBeCa. I thought about the logistics of a long weekend in TriBeCa. Given the time difference, it would be ok to go for the weekend if I planned to stay up all night clubbing, but if I wanted to do anything that required me to get out of bed before noon, it would hardly be worth it. The time difference would be too hard to adjust to over a three day period.

    That said, I have a number of cookbooks published by Workman & they're pretty good.

    My birthday was Thursday so I was taking some time off.

    And the answer to #1 is!

    1) FuMan Skeeto. The line launched in 1999 and was done by 2002.
