yuck, these hp touchpads are just magnets for the worst humans I've seen in a while.
almost as bad as the ipad, iphone, xbox360 and ps3 craze when they first came out.

Preparing materials for an outrigger canoe event.

Going to be a busy weekend of rowing coaching, rowing boat rigging (or running a course in it) and managing an outrigger canoe race.

Might sleep on Monday. Or go riding (no Sunday ride for me )

The last man at the office at 9:15 p.m. on a Friday, waiting for a couple of companies to release their first-half earnings and hoping I don't mess up the numbers in my stories.

Today I'm delivering my daughter to college and will drive home without her

It is uplifting to be here and around so many bright and enthusiastic young ones, all so eager to start the college life.

She is in good hands here in Walla Walla Washington, so I'm pretty happy overall!

I am on yet another 2-hour conference call. The hands-free clip on my ear is starting to hurt.

Wondering if I really am crazy enough to try to get a ride in this weekend while I still have stitches in my back. And wondering just how fast I can make the next 44 minutes go by. And wondering just how much sangria I'm going to drink this evening, or if all the flute players invading my house this evening is going to drink it all before I get there. And wondering if I'm going to keep my sanity if I don't ride this weekend after having the house invaded by a bunch of flute players this evening...

Uggh, summer cyclists. Four going the wrong way down a bike lane with no lights whatsoever and then a kid on a skateboard ran the red right in front of me.

Oh, and the ride home didn't help the migraine.

Your house is invaded by sangria-drinking flautists? Do they get drunk and start jamming Jethro Tull?

No, no Jethro Tull. There was some jazz going on the stereo while Margaret was making dinner, but most of the flute playing was excerpts from classical pieces routinely used for auditions.

Final drink count for the night:

2.5ish small glasses of sangria. 2 not so small glasses containing Sailor Jerry Navy Rum and coke. Current state, not buzzed any more, but not sober either.

Wow - what club?

Hong Kong Island Paddling Club, Hong Kong Outrigger Canoe Club, Lamma Island CC, Lantau, South Lantau or RHKYC?

She probably knows me - I organise the big race around HK Island.
