i can't wait until the sunday paper shows up later today, because the first letter on display is this one.
which i wrote.
now, i don't know if it's special if the editor-type-people wait to print your letter until sunday, and then put it first.
so you'll have to excuse me while i pretend that IT MEANS I RULE, and also while i allow myself to feel like I AM THE SHIT for a moment or two,
ok, i'm done.
to be honest, i'd started to think that they weren't going to publish my letter at all.
i mean, the first letter in friday's letter section thing was this one, which is not only about the same dispute, but also calls out the same city council member who i poke fun at in my letter.
i was a little concerned that i had already told everyone how excited i was, and the chances of my letter being published were looking pretty dismal.
i mean, how many letters ripping on the same city council lady are really necessary?
apparently, the answer is at least two.
so, hooray for me.
i wrote a letter, and it's in the paper today.
i know this won't seem like a big deal to everyone, but i'm going to go ahead and let myself be happy today.
the city council meeting to hear our case is scheduled for 2/20, so i'll have some further updates for you then. i'd like to say that i would be ready to give them an earful, but i abhor speaking in front of people. so, that won't be happening.
anyway, it could really get interesting after the meeting: either they'll turn us down and i'll have quite a bit of bitching to do, or they'll approve us and we'll have 3 weeks to put an event together that we should have been working on for four months.
seriously, it's soooo nice for the council to make some time for us.
