I hate having your brother stay over at my house because he is lazy and won't even turn the light off when he goes to bed. I don't like having inconsiderate guests over He's sleeping in the living room. He needs to get off the damn computer all night and go to bed at a reasonable hour so I don't have to make him get up. Seriously, you're at someone else's house, have some courtesy. Can't wait until he goes home, using up all my food.

I apologized for the sake of peace, but I don't feel sorry for snapping at him for sleeping on my nice couch pillows.

Oh, my Dear.

I will always love you, but you are an unusually poor speller. Only you could have made that error.

Sigh (of acceptance).

Here is the race report that I wrote for the 4.4-mile Great Chesapeake Bay Swim I did yesterday. It was AMAZING.

It was an amazing experience. I woke up early and felt great. No nerves, just anticipation. I went down to Great Marsh Park to watch the start of the Eagleman half-Ironman triathlon and then drove to Kent Island and got the bus over the Bay Bridge to Sandy Point. I met up with a friend who was the only other person I knew doing the Bay Swim. We found a little bit of shade and sunscreened and lubed up before being corralled on the beach. I sat in the water in my wetsuit until they made us get out, a few minutes before the start.

The Bay was calm and warm, and the weather was hot and sunny. We swam to the right to get under the spans and the first mile was getting around the left curve of the bridge. It was pretty incredible to come through the curve and see the whole Bay Bridge disappearing off into the haze, and think "I have to swim that!".

There was no current to speak of, which was the thing I was most concerned about. I positioned myself in the middle of the spans (so I had a buffer both ways if the current did pick up) and in the immortal words of Dory, I just kept swimming. There were some landmarks - the shipping channels and other changes in the bridge architecture that I aimed for and passed. Mile 3 was the longest, I felt like I was in no-mans-land between the shipping channels and just right in the middle of the Bay!

Mostly though, I just really enjoyed the experience. The water felt good and I just cruised along. I was in that meditative zone you get when swimming, just feeling the water and putting one arm in front of the other, enjoying having no pool ends to have to stop and turn around! I couldn't find the first food boat but had a couple of gels in my wetsuit that kept me going. I ate them while floating on my back, washed down (unintentionally) with bay water! By breathing to both sides, I was able to get a unique view of both bridge spans the whole way.

The only time I noticed the current was approaching the 4-mile mark, the last quarter-mile or so before I had to go under the south span and swim to Hemingway's. By that point, I was right beside the south span and the tide was going out so I had to make an effort not to get swept under the bridge before I was supposed to! Then I still had half a mile to swim to the finish beach where some friends were waiting for me. I felt great when I finished which indicates to me that I could have pushed harder but that wasn't my goal. My goal was to enjoy it and I certainly did. My time was 2:36 which I was happy with.

I think the experience would definitely have been way different with different conditions but I got really lucky. Well, a bit of luck and a lot of preparation!

Now onto the Dardanelles!

There are feral colonies in the neighborhood, but this cat has been someone's pet. Whether she's lost or abandoned, I don't know.

Youre a stronger woman than I. I'm a sucker for animals. I would've snuck her in my house in a second!

Oh, I thought about it. But, being thrown out with the cat isn't appealing, lol. She'd be hard to hide. She's pretty vocal.

At any rate, I should at least get her scanned just in case.

I just can't. I've told you for weeks since they pulled out "a piece of metal" from that tire that they didn't repair it right and I've been having to fill it up. I've told you this repeatedly. Now you ask me why the tire might be flat when we get to Denver, I get the 3rd degree about it. Really? SMDH

DG you are AMAZING!! I'm so glad everything went well and you had a great experience. The thought of it terrifies me, but that may be because I can't swim!


xcptnl, the iced coffee shrine!!! I'll worship mine later this afternoon. I'll share a picture of the glory that is my iced coffee as well.
