check it out

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.

p.s.
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.

No seriously, you are the shit. Sunday??? I've been in that paper several times and never made the SUNDAY paper. Clearly, it means you rock. Congrats!
