I am a bad person.

So I left out something about the triathlon. Something that my roommate said "It's okay if you tell your friends this, but I wouldn't write that in a public forum." If you are dying to know, I have no problem telling you on IM or e-mail (all that info is in my profile). It's not that exciting, really, but my roommate said that it might make someone feel bad.

Anyways, as a result of this, I decided I really need to work on my swimming. Conveniently, when I went swimming on Monday night, Hottie Swim Coach, who is a firefighter by day, was there giving someone a lesson. I thought "I have crappy technique. In fact, I don't even know what good technique is. Hottie Swim Coach should know such things. Maybe I'll take a lesson." So I asked him about it and we're on.

I have to note that I felt badass when he noticed the big 32 on my arm and said:

"Did you do the tri in Marshalltown this weekend?"
"Why yes, yes I did. Bask in my awesomeness."

He's training for his first triathlon. Although unlike me who does little tiny baby tris, he is jumping right in to Olympic distance.

So I am taking a swim lesson. And it is because of the aforementioned event. Not because the swim coach is hot. Really. I swear!

Hooray for hawt swim coaches. It will make the lessons just that much easier if you have some eye candy.

I want to know what happened! You can't tease me like that.

Very eloquently written argument about recycling. I am not really an opponent of recycling per se, but I did have a throw-down with some friends of mine last night over the issue, and I think it was just a bit of lingering frustration over it.

I do think people should have the option to recycle. I don't think people should be forced to recycle, but I also think that the process can be made more efficient. But NOT through the Fed Gov.

I hope I didn't offend you :)

Also, I've begun to long road back to the running shape I used to be in - which is, by the way, not even close to all of you. You all are hardcore, no doubt about it.
