Along with most other Canadians, I breathed a sigh of relief when Canada finally got a gold medal on Canadian soil ... um ... snow.
Well, the olympics seem to be going along nicely despite the fact that there isn't much snow. I take full responsibility for the fact that Cypress Mtn has had to truck in and make snow since I stated months ago I wanted NO SNOW for Christmas. Last year we had record snowfalls and this year I demanded a green Christmas. Things just got a little out of hand, I guess.
Tomorrow I plan to venture from my cozy front row seat in my living room into downtown Vancouver. I don't have tickets for any events but I plan to visit Sochi House - our science museum now converted into a Russian venue. I also hope to see the big torch cauldron. The way the crowds are I figure that little jaunt should take about 6 - 8 hours. Not kidding.
On the writing front, I've been working on my new story but keep getting sidetracked by research. I hate it when that happens. When my brain says, "hold on a second, could that body really be pinned under a pile of lumber for days and be recognizable?" Questions like that lead me visiting body farm websites and posting questions on research loops and before I know it I've stopped writing while I wait for answers. That's more of a 2nd draft thing and I'm still in 1st draft so I need to cut it out!
So how are things where you are? Getting sidetracked lately?
