Ah, July. I loathe the weather you bring, but I love you for bringing me the Tour de France. Did anyone else see today's stage? I thought there was no way McEwen could win--I mean, he was actually out of the peloton at one point--but he did. Amazing! I know cycling has gotten tossed about a bit especially in the last year, but I'm still in awe of anyone who is willing to ride a bike for three weeks. THREE WEEKS! (Not to mention all the mountain stages--I don't think I'd want to walk up any of them, much less ride through them after being on a bike for days already)

I'm going to New York tomorrow, and I'm really excited about it...BUT I'm going to miss a stage of the Tour. Waaah! I'm tivoing it--I like the morning coverage so much better than what's on in the evening--but still. It's not the same as watching it live. And yes, I know, bike racing? But I'm telling you, read this, and then check out this (it's not the greatest picture quality, but you get a very clear idea of what a comeback McEwen made from the commentators)

Unrelated, but other things that are making me happy: Bloom got a five-star (!!) review over at hiplibrariansbookblog and was mentioned on Avenging Sybil. Pardon me, but SQUEE!!!

Really a stellar job, Elizabeth. I know I didn't go into the detail it deserves, but just know that I found so much to like about Bloom and thought your no-nonsense approach to sex as it related to these characters' lives (as well as the bit of role reversal between Dave and Lauren) to be particularly refreshing and honest. -DE
