Rain, Weekends, Boats, And Getting Seasick
I like getting some advance notice of things.
Like just now. The satellite TV cut out. The screen got pixelated then went black. So I knew it would rain. And then it did! Just now. And there is the thunder clap. Just one? That is odd. Usually there are more than one.
South Florida still needs the rain - so this is good!! Even though a three day weekend is approaching, anyone in FL who bitches about rain is an ass. Would you rather we not get any rain? You like taking showers right? Well guess what genius! You think that water just falls from the sky??
Oh wait - it does. Never mind. But if it does not fall from the sky, then we run out of it. So a rainy weekend is well worth it.
And speaking of three day weekends, I have yet to form a plan. All my associates are either going out of town (smart move), working, or have little projects to accomplish.
I kind of want to hit the water, but it remains to be seen if this will happen. In a way it would not be too bad if I did not do anything. I have things to do that really need to get done. Using the boat would be a wonderful excuse to not get those things done.
So maybe Ill just do some of those things, and if I want to take a break go watch a movie. That will be a whole lot cheaper than using the boat anyway.
Unless of course the schedule of some friends clears up. In that case I might have to reconsider the options.
And speaking of boats - this is fairly exciting. The chance to go hang out on an 87 foot vessel is here, and for real. I have to jump through some hoops - but the hoops have a dual payoff. I will have additional things to put on job applications and ye ole resume. This never hurts.
At first, the duties will be dockside. Lots of learning to do. I have to prove myself, and gain the confidence of others.
Once that is done, I can go to sea. And probably get somewhat seasick. Word on the street is EVERYONE gets seasick. 87 feet is really not as large as one might think it is in 4 - 6 foot ocean rollers. Sure, the sea may be at two feet or less - but it can just as easily not be that calm.
All that is part of the fun anyway. If getting seasick is not for you - then neither is going to sea.
So I will get involved in the program. The goal is worth the effort - at least in my view.
And if I puke I puke.
