It's called being a proper fanboy/girl. It's wins like this that make the nightmarish past few weeks/months/years almost worthwhile, they are that much sweeter.

Now you know how I felt two weeks ago when Duckmug got his revenge wins over two tough opponents, and bankrupted every gambler in the world by winning Dubai on his debut there. I was so about it that I didn't even notice he had lost to Haas a week later.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

We had the strangest weather here today. It was raining heavily this morning, then got sunny in the afternoon. So I went to hit some tennis balls with my machine, and towards the end it starts raining....by the time I get to my car there are hailstones

Oh sure. It's pretty when you don't get it for 6 MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR. We literally have snow from November to March and sometimes April. By this time of year, I just can't stand it anymore.

I can see how you wouldn't like it then. I don't know how people deal with the cold that comes along with the snow, honestly It gets like 50 degrees here and we think it's freezing

No comment from me here In 2007 my team (Paris) won the french rugby league while I was in the stade de france, we were down for the entire match but scored 2 tries in the last 10 minutes (the winning one was 2 minutes away from the end). I was on such a high, 80,000 people screaming etc...the only problem was that for the past two years the final of the rugby league was the saturday before the final of the FO, suffice to say the high didn't last very long

I agree that Nole will come guns blazing against Rada

I agree. It's quite a mood lifter but for me it lasts for a short while and then I am back to my melancholic self

I never saw snow too until I came to the US. Now I have had enough of it though it didn't snow much here this year. I like it only for the first time it falls in winter. After that I get tired.

Betty, I read that you do social work in the MTF personal diary. What does that mean?
