may day

hopefully that's something we won't have to say on saturday. dad and i conspired to take mum deep-sea fishing this weekend, so we've got to leave their house at about 0430 to make the boat on time. it's a six-hour trip, and i'm looking forward to it immensely. the weather's supposed to be beautiful, so maybe i'll take my camera and see what kind of pictures i could put up here.

so, order of business for tomorrow is to get dramamine (just in case, having never been on the pacific), pack extra clothes in a waterproof pack, gather up snackable foods for the trip, and clean out the truck. the guy i spoke to when i made the reservations said that the pacific is a lot calmer than the caribbean which is the only place i've been on the water in a small boat. i remember it being terribly choppy. i probably would have been fine if i hadn't gone below--this time i'll remember to keep my eyes on that horizon line. the boat we'll be on is the "irish", a nice nod to our heritage.

so, that's about all i've got planned for the weekend. as i said, i'll try to get a couple pics up here when i get back. and hopefully i'll have a freezer full of fish next week!

It is not the existence of authority but its use and abuse that disrupt the common patterns of behaviour and test the tensile strength of character.
