btw, ice storm last night.
Anyway, I thought I would pop in with a proper update on things.
Good news, both my classes are running. Though we've only met once so far because of all of the school closures due to bad weather. But they are both running. Nice bit of cash. I got my tax returns mailed out so with any luck at all, I'll be able to get a new car soon.
I'm looking at either a 2010 or 2011 Kia Sportage. I almost got one five years ago when I ended up buying my Rio because the deal was too good to pass up.
More good news, I finally got my first words on paper (well, computer) for the novel that's been floating around in my head and on random notes on napkins and matchbook covers. I'm liking the way it's developing. And I signed up for Amazon's self publishing service so I can sell it.
And finally, I don't know if anyone else here watches Detroit 187 (if you don't you should. It's an awesome police drama, not a procedural.) Anyway, ABC hasn't made a decision yet as to whether or not they will pick it up for a second season. One of the show's stars, Aisha Hinds, posted a link to a petition to ABC asking for the show to be renewed.
Here is the link: www.petitiononline.com/det187/petition.h
The show is really well written and well acted and intelligent. I can't really say that with confidence about any of the other new shows this season and I would really love to see it picked up for another season. You can fill out the petition anonymously; they have an option to hide your email address.
Well, I guess that's it for now. Once it stops raining I have to go chip all of the ice off my car and go food shopping.
