No shit, Tempus Fugit!
First Day of Wimbledon!

tennis - got balls: charliemc
Guess what? It's raining a bit at Wimbledon today! I nearly used my rainy U.S. Open icon for this post, because I don't have a rainy Wimbledon one. (Winners today included Andy, Roger, Martina Hingis -- she's injured and barely came through -- and Serena. Henman and Moya just started a fifth set.)

When you're in the special events world (and you just got hammered by the liquid sunshine), you can really empathize. Here's a question I have no patience for: "Why don't you just change the date of the parade?" (To what? Tell me what day is guaranteed to have perfect weather!)

I'm snorting and my tongue is swollen -- must be allergy season. I actually skipped work today, so I just spent the last hour logged on to my computer there. Can't help myself.

My story turned out great! No, it wasn't at all what I expected it to be, but it might be even better. I think it's something I could actually shop around with a little more work. We'll see how it goes over tonight at the Writer's Circle.

Yawn. I need a nap and a shower, but I think I have to watch this tennis.

And on that note, welcome to my flist, b4_sunrise, a tennis fan who lives in London! Woohoo!

Thanks for the welcome. It's actually meant to be the wettest June on record, and there was about a month's worth of rain today in some parts of the UK. So you can imagine how wet it was during Birmingham when Maria's matches were postponed and she had to play 4 in 2 days. Hopefully we'll actually get to see Maria in action tomorrow. I'm excited to see what she's going to be wearing.
