et cetera

I lied, didn’t make the post before the weekend.  Here’s some random styff anyway.

Why is it that the first day of summer starts on the summer solsitce?  That just doesn’t make sense to me, I’d think that the solstice would be more the mid-point but maybe it’s cause of some historhysis effect. meh. The days are getting shorter none-the-less.

So I bought some rock shoes and have started going to a rock gym.  Technically I’m on my second pair.  I wear size 12 tennies and after trying on several pairs of shoes decided that a size 10 would be best.  I was wrong.  After trying them out for an evening and my toes getting a bit cramped I went back and traded them for a 10.5, they fit much better.

I never realized how different and demanding bouldering could be from climbing, but I’m still having fun, even if I’m a bit more sore.  I haven’t done any climbing in the gym yet but that should change once my friends take the climbing class and I take the belay test around the start of the new month.  If you want to join us let me know and I’ll give you a call when were going.  We generally are going twice or three times a week.  Begginers welcome.

This weekend I depart for the house boat trip.  For those of you not in the know I’m going to be spending the next week on a houseboat (duh) with family and extend on Lake Roosevelt (north-central Washington).  These are generally fun but this year much of the family that’d normally go can’t or had to cancel which is kinda bummer.  but this will be the first trip where nonrelatives have gone (my sisters bf & fiance) so that’ll be interesting specially since they really haven’t met the extended family.

I’ve wanted a digtal camera for a long time and this boat trip is a good excuse to get one now.  I’ve been looking at different models and like many things I go to buy, I intend to get something nice and cheap but end up with something very nice and pricey.  If I don’t like it after this weekend though I’ll return it :).  So far I like it though, we’ll see when I get back.

Lastly, I’ve decided that I’d prefer to eat haggis instead of hotdogs.  I’ve thought about this for a bit and came to the conclusion that not only does haggis taste better, but I actually know exactly what’s in it.

Sorry about the false advertising in my last post, but here’s some boobies for you if you want (you pervs).
