My swim meet was great. Aside from the power going out and delaying the meet for an hour and a half, I think it was a great day. I competed in the 50 breast and the 50 free. Breast was great — lane 4, heat 4. I was the fastest in my heat with a time around 34 seconds. In the 50 Free, I came out with a 26.4.
It snowed today which sucks, but gas prices are low and I can finally take advantage of it. With my luck prices will be back up before I get out of class and have a chance to go. That’s life I guess.
I just finished the first day of my first meet swimming for the U of L. I am dead tired. Today I swam the 100 Breast (1:18), 100 Free (1:01), and 50 Fly (32.5). I took a few pictures on my digital camera but I don’t think they are going to turn out to well. It’s too dark in the pool area, but if there are any worth it I may try to improve them in Photoshop.
Happy Birthday Jackie! Just like that, “voila!” she’s 21!
It’s my sister Jackie’s birthday today. I was going to call her, but I realized that she wasn’t going to be home so instead I just sent her and email and dedicated this post to her. That’s right Jack, this is all for you. So what I’m going to do is list some of the things I like about you, Jackie, and some of the things I don’t like.
Things I like about growing up with my kid-sister Jackie:
She’s always been a easy scapegoat, it’s her own fault really.
that time she stole a pack of hubba bubba and shared with everyone
all the my little ponies that she had for targets for my GI Joe
never complaining to mom and dad all the times that Gary and I tied her up with ropes just for the fun of it.
never asking me to give you my Christmas spending money so you could buy a present for me and then turn around and buy headphones for yourself.
also never whining about not wanting to go on the Dumbo ride at Disneyland and then monopolizing the controls.
someone to talk to through the vents in my ceiling.
always being a good sport about all the nick names you’ve been given over the years.
bringing over friends…(don’t ask why)
hmmm, I guess that’s about it.
Things I dislike about growning up with my kid-sister Jackie:
that time she squirted ketchup on me just to prove that she would.
that time she borrowed risk for her boyfriend and never returned it (still)
all the times that she decided she would like to play monopoly but then either quit 10 minutes into it or the equivilent by just letting us roll for her.
telling me that you love me when you know I am angry at you and then saying that you only said you love me to impress people at church.
The conspiracy continues. My gas tank is still three quarters full but gas dropped to 25.4 cents yesterday. On top of that Safeway gives 3.5 cents off per litre so all I can say is at least I’m happy that I don’t have to wait in line for cheap gas.
I think there is a conspiracy going on in Lethbridge. Actually I think it’s all across Southern Alberta. Every time my gas tank is full, the gas stations drop their prices. When it comes time for me to buy – they jack them up like crazy. It’s as if they actually know when I need gas and change their prices just to screw me over.
By the way, it’s Kyoto, not Keyoto. The interesting thing about Kyoto is that, from the sounds of it, you might think it’s a small town or even a medium sized city. This, however, is not the case. Kyoto is in fact a major metropolis. An easy way to remember how to spell Kyoto is to just switch the letters of Tokyo around. Kyoto means number two and I guess that was the deal — Tokyo is number one, Kyoto well it’s number two because it’s just a rearrangement of letters. Also interesting about Kyoto, I think that they sure produce a lot of poisonous gases themselves to be bossing everyone around. But thanks to Kyoto, we now have the Kyoto Accord and now everybody’s got to reduce their emissions. I wish the kid next to me in this computer lab would reduce his emissions. That’s all for me.
Since I can’t think of anything better to post, I’ve decided to write about my new computer. I purchased a 19 inch monitor but had to take it back. The picture on it was compressed at the top. I got a new monitor — same model (NEC AccuSync 95f) and it has the same problem. Since I live in Lethbridge and the computer store is closed for Canadian Thanksgiving, I’ve decided to let my parents take it back and I will get a new one in Lethbridge.
