My annual tradition of watching cable television coverage of The Tour at mom and dad's has been shattered. They don't get OLN, the network carrying tour coverage in the states this year (no one around here seems to), so the only TV we can get is a Sunday afternoon hour on CBS.
So Sunday afternoon I trooped over and we watched an hour of the overdramatized summary of week one of racing (overdramatized because it was pretty uneventful, as the first week always is except for Jackie Durand wearing the polkadot jersey for a bit).
In honor of Le Tour's first mountain stage this week, I did a pretty ambitious climb on my own bike yesterday - 2,500 feet elevation gain. It was rather by accident, a road new to me that I'd been afraid of 'cause everyone talks about what a hard climb it is. I intended to go up as far as I could until I blew up, then turn around and ride down. But I never blew up, which meant the top! It wasn't as hard a climb as I thought.computers
And who should I meet near the top, but my ubiquitous cycling fiend friend Nancy, who I seem to bump into everywhere.
Some good discussions launched on gnome-docs-list about architectural issues for GNOME 2 help. This is great for me, because I'm not very good at thinking about these big-picture things, and we must get this right.sigh
Vacation's done. Must go to work.
