To be honest, since the announcement that Covid-19 vaccines were effective the main thing on my mind has been wondering how 'normal' things will actually be when 'things return to normal'.
You kind of hope that we all will have taken stock during this past year indoors and remember to cherish the little things when we're allowed back outside, instead of just chanting 'PUB, PUB, PUB' in unison as we march towards the nearest beer garden.
Judging by this week's tweets, though, things are not nearly getting back to normal, not even close.
1. This would indeed fulfill Ineos' promise of more open, exciting racing
2. You probably also had time to talk to every single person in Latvia during the broadcasting of Milan - Sanremo from start to finish
3. The irony is that when the website says yes the racing is too exciting for anyone to be wasting time checking a joke website
4. Didn't see this sort of thing mentioned in the new UCI health and safety measures
5. Harsh, but ask yourself would you rather be a loveable bathtime accessory or an animal with the neck power to break a human arm?
6. What was the joke? (Wrong) answers on a postcard please
7. People talk about riders' transition from cyclocross to the road but where's the respect for Sam Bewley for making it from the WorldTour to Twitter-hacked-cryptocurrency-trading and then back again?
8. Yep, things are definitely not even close to back to normal
9. I'll just say I could use all the help I can get
10. This is the only tweet you really needed this week, Suez Canal x Movistar memes directly into my veins s'il vous plaît
11. Me too, bud, me too
We’ll be back in seven days with more pure fuego tweets de la semaña.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.
Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).
I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
