Today...

Recommended Posts

Captain's log: weather was a "warm" 50 degrees (F) tonight so I thought the water might be warmer. I was wrong. Less than 5 seconds in, my hands and feet were numb and it felt like I jumped into a pool of daggers. Damn. I frantically climbed out like a frightened little girl. At least the walk (of shame) back to my place was very warm and toasty in comparison.

 

Found this dude's blog on winter swimming though. He makes it sound like that pain and numbness is completely normal even for veterans. Sorta makes sense since even cold showers become pretty brutal in the middle of winter. Guess next time I'll just force myself to stay in for a full minute and try to relax and see what happens.

On Friday I got roped into a Secret Santa more or less without my consent. I've never been in one before. I could try to get out of it, but that would probably garner more attention than just participating. I need help thinking of a neutral gift that would work for pretty much anyone (I don't know who I got yet). I was thinking of an Amazon gift card. I don't know how much to get one for, though. I don't know if there is a price limit or anything, either. I also don't even know if most people use Amazon. I'll probably find out more details on Tuesday, but I'd rather be over-prepared than under-prepared. This is so stressful. The only thing I suck at more than receiving gifts is giving gifts.

Just wait until Tuesday. You ain't supposed to be gifting the stuff before Christmas anyways.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

An Amazon gift card is perhaps the most boring present you could give to someone. The point of Secret Santa isn't to give the most useful/applicable gift, it's to have fun. Just don't get some really weird specific thing that no one would have a use for, but don't just give them the equivalent of money.

A good gift is something that you would enjoy receiving but is also usable by everyone else. For example, a DVD set of a TV show that you like. There's usually a $15-$25 limit on these things so you don't have to think too big.

I was on a long run today and around the 13th mile I stopped at a Coffee Bean to get a cup of water because I was starting to suffer from dehydration. I got kicked out after 5 minutes of waiting in line because I didn't have a shirt on/ or one with me. I didn't bother arguing with it cause of the the classic saying "No shirt, no shoes, no service" but I was hoping after a quick plea saying I'm 13 miles into a run & I'm sucking on salt (your mouth and lips become salty when you're dehydrated) might be enough to have the barista go against her manager's request to not serve me, but it didn't work, so I left and finished the remaining 2 miles of my run without passing out.

Although he probably doesn't know the person hes giving to too well so a general use gift card is the way to go.

Imagine if everyone brought an amazon gift card.

 

Just buy some candy (Walmart has 2lb bags of sour patch kids for like $10) and something small, like a coffee mug, a bottle opener, or a couple small bottles of alcohol

Bring water with you next time? Or a shirt?

Regardless, had you passed out I would think tp sue the store in some way.

With a country run by corporations and greed, how could there not be a high market for lawsuits?

I believe there is now enough water in my shoes to sustain a small ecosystem.

The reality is that you'd likely trade everything just to become American. Most valuable thing in the world = U.S. citizenship.
