when you think your day is bad...

...inevitably someone else's is worse!

I was feeling a bit b*tchy today....I have a ton of work to do, a conference here to attend all day tomorrow and ALL day Saturday (ssshhhh...don't tell anyone I'm skipping Saturday morning to go on a bike ride), a bunch of meeting this afternoon, a bunch of voicemails I've been avoiding...and then I get an email from Dotsie (my friend and amazing bike racer chick--see link). I didn't ask her if I could post her email..so I will just paraphrase, but she wrote me from Venezuela where she is for the Pan-Am championships. After some airport/ticket hassles she finally gets there, but her bikes did not make it! And so she has a TT tomorrow and no bikes! And a bunch of the Track team are sick and on IV's, which she is of course trying to avoid, and it is too dangerous to go out without a police escort! Sounds like a darn lovely place...

So I'm proclaiming to all in the blogosphere...my life is pretty darn good! And GOOD LUCK DOTSIE!!!!!

Yikes! Perhaps the bikes got nabbed by Homeland Security, not wanting the advanced technology to fall into Hugo's hands ;-) Sort of brings backs some old memories of working in South America; always a few extra hurdles. Hope DB gets her bike, stays healthy, and safe.

That is horrible! Hopefully the bikes show up and she is able to compete.

i hope she got her TT bike in time! I haven't heard...so we'll just have to assume the best.
