How I can tell February has gone on 60 days too long

1. I have started to watch Judge Alex
2. I have started to watch Judge Judy
3. I have started to watch Judge Joe Brown
4. As a result I have started to sympathize with women who cut up their ex-boyfriends wardrobes into tiny vindictive bits
5. I also have started to watch curling competitions
6. And I care who wins

My funny friend Chris Decker is the one who said February has lasted 60 days. And she's right.

On the other hand, I just got word that Viking is buying a picture of mine called SOPHIE'S FISH. And so February hasn't been all dreariness . . .

Great news! Not about February, which is indeed overly long and never feels like the shortest month. About the picture book. YES!!

I'm so happy for you.
And February is cold and pointless.

Sophies Fish!!!!!!!!!

What a great title.

February is almost over, and you'll be happy to know that I bought a dress made of LINEN that is a lovely shade of PINK.

(I feel that "pink" and "linen" are two harbinger words for spring, and I'm not afraid to use them.)

I passed part of February by reading "The Loser's Guide to Life and Love." I loved this book, it was so funny. Thanks for making a few days of this snowy month brighter.

I sure enjoyed meeting you tonight at the corral. You're so down to earth and easy to chat with! We're looking forward to reading The Loser's Guide...
*whispers* Don't forget the Twitter thing. ;)
