Is it still bragging if it's a) not about you and b) not about someone related to you? Yeah? Well, tough, cuz I feel like delaying as long as possible a write-up of yesterday's train wreck of a 10-mile run. So, let's talk about exciting news about someone I have met.
Number One Daughter's BF was invited to try out for the U.S. National rowing team, and made it. "In total, nine crews will represent the United States at the 2006 FISA World Rowing Under 23 Championships scheduled to run July 20-23 in Hazewinkel, Belgium."
He left for Belgium yesterday. His family is leaving on Monday to travel around Europe before hooking up with him in Belgium next week.
NOD had a sudden urge to go to Belgium.
NOD's mother hasn't got an extra dime to her name.
But...NODBF's mother knows how to work online airfares like nobody's business, scoring a most excellent last-minute fare.
NOD's father came thru with the dough.
NOD's workplace said "no problem" when she asked for 4 days off of her intensive summer internship.
Result? NOD is going to Belgium next week—lucky bugger. She's even staying gratis with the BF's family; plus, they are fetching her from and bringing her back to the airport in Brussels.
Personally, I don't know what the big deal is. Just to see some more hawt guys in spandex making funny faces?:
These fetching young chaps be representin', y'all!
