Swim Meet in Calgary

The swim meet was great. I had personal bests in 4 out of my 5 swims. As of this posting the site is not updated but I should now be ranked in the top 70 of all Canada. This time the ranking will be more accurate because most of the Universities will have posted their swimmers times.

I didn’t take my own camera to the swim meet because I forgot it! Yes, I didn’t remember to take it when I rushed out the door to catch the bus.

One last thing, I am probably not going to Calgary to see Jackie off. She is going to California for a little while. Anyway I have things I need to do here including another Swim Meet (or is that the weekend after this?) Either way I’ll have to check. If I don’t have a swim meet I’ll have a training course for Water Safety Instructor.

Secret Visit to My Brother and his Wife’s Place

Mom and Dad came and visited me today. We went for lunch at Pizza Hut. They just left a few minutes ago and are heading back to Medicine Hat. Tonight I am going to Calgary but I haven’t told Gary and Tracie I am coming to visit yet. Mom thinks I should pack before I call them. I think maybe I should just show up – as a kind of happy surprise. Anyway I am swimming tomorrow so I should get packed and get going. Instead I will procrastinate and end up driving in the dark.

Swim Team Christmas Party

Yesterday was the Swim Team Christmas Party. We had a pot luck which was pretty tasty… well actually there were a few pasta dishes that weren’t all that tasty, but there was enough really good food that I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Afterwards we had a “chinese” gift exchange. I thought I was going to get a really good present because I drew a high number and would have the choice of a lot of the different presents if I wanted to steal one from someone else, but instead I decided to unwrap a present from the middle. A tradition has developed over the years at these Swim Team Christmas parties. It involves regiving the same crappy / scary doll each year. I was lucky enough to pick the doll present and now I’m expected to save it at my house for a whole year so that I can screw someone else over next year so they can be in charge of it for a whole year… lucky them. Merry Christmas.

Prairie Winter International 2

Riding on a bus for 13 hours sucks. However, the results are in and I did very well at the Swim Meet in Winnipeg. I have a new best time in 50 free (25.58) and that time qualifies me for the Canada West Meet this February. I lent my parking pass to Anna while I was gone and although I just knew this would happen I forgot to put it back in my car on Tuesday and sure enough I got a parking ticket. I am going to appeal it at the security office after my multimedia class today.

In other news, I finally decided to get my own domain. Let the “master of my own domain” jokes begin! It’s not up yet, but it should only be a day or two until my new domain is fully functional!

I bought a fridge the other day from Sears. I came home and double checked the amount of room I have and it looks like I’ll either have to cancel the fridge, or remove cupboards. I’m still undecided. I think I have until the 20th to decide.
