flaunching

A work project I have been working on since February or so finally launched yesterday. This was in clear violation of our “no friday launches” (no flaunching) rule. And as such was a flaunting flaunching.

Pretty good week otherwise. A week of sailing boats and working on bikes. It must be summer.

I also came really close to wetting the bed on Wednesday night! Here is what happened: Wednesday night sail races were lovely. The day was warm and fair, the northerlies puffy but never dead. It was a great night for sail racing, and we ended up taking second place for the series after running two nearly flawless races. This meant celebration after the races and I ended up going home lit.

I passed out in my clothes and then had the strangest dream. In this dream I was walking alone through a beautiful wood. I was walking in this wonderful forest and I came across a urinal growing out of the trunk of a majestic redwood tree. Its plumbing melded with the roots of the tree and it looked so lovely that I thought to myself “hey, would you look at that? That is a fine looking urinal there. I think it would be a good idea to walk up to it and…” At this point the tiny little voice in the back of my head grabbed a megaphone and said “RAZ YOU NEED TO GET UP RIGHT NOW!”.

I had the unfortunate experience of waking up drunk on thursday morning. Sobered up by the time I got to work, and worked like a madman all day. Thursday evening bid farewell to Mackenzie. She is going to do AIDS work in Zambia for a year. How awesome is that? I will miss her terribly, but I am so proud of her too. Caught up with Point 83 and had a lovely ride from the arboretum to Teddy’s.

Yesterday was Cass’s birthday. CWB boat-shop party that was still pretty low-key by the time I left to go to another party. Cool people though and some familiar faces.

This is the first weekend in a long time where I have very few real plans. I am really excited by this fact. This also means that if you read this and you want to hang out, I could very well be convinced to come hang out. Give a holler. 206-240-1264.
