I'm so jealous to hear that you guys are going to get to watch the Tour of California on Versus! I don't get Versus up here, except when OLN carries it during the TdF, so I'm still stuck watching it on cycling.tv - bah (not that I'm ungrateful for the stellar service provided by cycling.tv - it's certainly better than nothing - I'd just much rather be on my comfy couch watching it on TV than at my desk in front of my laptop).
It's back to being ridiculously cold up here. I can't wait for spring. My pool is frozen over and now my dogs have taken to running out onto the ice and relieving themselves IN MY POOL! So gross.
An update on my first writer's group meeting: I took your wonderful feedback and made a few changes to my first chapter before reading it aloud to the group. I was so nervous that I was literally shaking. But the good news is that they really, really liked it. I got some great feedback - and this is from people who don't know me at all and thus don't have to be nice to me. I was so happy that when I got stopped by a cop on my way home for running a red light (I didn't really run it, it was yellow going in but turned red once I was already in the intersection) I didn't even care. He only gave me a warning, but I was on such a high from the fact that people - strangers - actually liked my work - that I would have whistled all the way home, even with a ticket.
