Bleh and more bleh

Bit of a funk here. Unseasonably warm here – 84 as I type this. Dry air, probably with a touch of smoke from Los Angeles and random other sites, is doing a number on my sinuses. Making no progress on a writing project despite a deadline. My new wetsuit is back for warranty repair or replacement and my old is still suffering from shrinkage. I keep drawing unhelpful tiles in Facebook Scrabble. Bored with swimming laps lap after lap. So I’m here. Entertain me internet people. Please help me forget my frustrations. Anyone?

Saltwater Therapy Fails

Tried to get some saltwater therapy in Del Mar while waiting for a bout of writer’s block to go away this morning. The therapy itself was initially very successful, but a seam on my new wetsuit ripped out as I was unzipping the suit after the session. So much for the calming effects of surf – now we’re into the mental-bouncy effects of waiting for warranty repair or exchange. And the writer’s block is still there.

Life? I Had One Here Somewhere.

Ready to put this miserable excuse for a week behind me and take a little weekend roadtrip. Time to test out the new wetsuit somewhere between here and Ventura. Disgusted with myself that I’ve had it for a week now and it hasn’t even been near the water. There’s been something seriously wrong with my priorities.

Looking Forward

I should be writing, but instead I just keep pushing the refresh button trying to find out where FedEx is hiding my new wetsuit. My schedule is packed between now and Tuesday, mostly with election stuff, but come Wednesday I want to be comfy and warm and not at my desk.

Something in a black Neoprene

After watching some surfing from the shore for a bit this morning I spent some time today looking for a new wetsuit.  Locally and online.  The old one is in good shape, just getting tighter in some places.  There appears to be more Chuck then there used to be, and my current fullsuit is about maxed out.  No big rush, but I really should get something before my surftrip/hearing in Ventura next month, and so I can head back to the water once the summer tourists go home.
