Pre-vacation rant

OK, I couldn't come up with an idea for a bra rant. I suppose that means I'm healthy, being a guy who doesn't cross-dress (or at least admit to it).

Anyway, I love weekends before dive trips, because it forces me to start working on our trip list. We usually take out our dive luggage & start packing the gear that we know we'll be taking.

My biggest dilemma this trip is deciding which wet suit to pack. Usually for May, I dive a 3 mil suit, but I've been getting cold recently. Compounding that is that I've lost 8 pounds since January, which was when I took my last trip. Plus, I think the water temps have been running 1-2 degrees colder than this time last year (up your fucking ass, Al Gore!). Problem if I take a 5 mil is that it may be so hot topside that I'll have to gear down during every surface interval so I don't melt. I'll probably go with the 3 mil & freeze my ass off for the last 15 minutes of every dive.

I also need to go through my music library & decide what to load on my phone, which is also my mp3 player. Since the wife is coming with on this trip, it's out with the Soft Cell, Pet Shop Boys, Scissor Sisters & Fall Out Boy (yes, those guys are fucking fags, too) & in with more "beach-type" stuff. As long as you define "beach-type" stuff as metal, and lots of it.

The thing I love about where we stay is that there's no TV, and aside from our phones & netbook, no real communication w/civilization. Besides twitter, I may check sports scores, but I sure as fuck won't be checking for updates on our self-important asshat President. A week without having to listen to that pompous fuck is a vacation in an of itself.

I will probably post any cool underwater pics & videos here, twitpic and/or facebook. If I take any non-embarrassing topside pix, I'll post those as well.

Oh, and I'm not into dudes. I just like making jokes that make it look like I am.
