Two days down, two to go

I have been staring at a blank screen for about 10 minutes trying to figure out what to say about the past two days. Nothing comes to mind. Not because nothing happened but because I am so tired, so sleep-deprived and so completely unable to think normally.

This sentence, although it appears to flow naturally from the one above, took another five minutes of staring into cyberspace before I actually typed any words. Anyway, before I fall asleep on the keyboard, here's a brief recap:
  • Friday: Swam the 1500 freestyle in a time of 22:03.29, which was good enough for 2nd place. Am surprised about this. Wear medal around my neck the entire day.

  • Saturday: Swam the 100 freestyle in a time of 1:09.75 (8th place). Also swam the 400 freestyle in a time of 5:29.20 (5th place). Swore never to swim at another swim meet again. Too much pain. Not enough gain.

  • Attended banquet with parents and house guests (two teammates from Vancouver are staying with me in Toronto). We were "entertained" by an Elvis impersonator with a British accent. Elvis impersonater also gave motivational speech. Something about frogs in a pond. If you can't get out, keep swimming around. Cannot confirm point of speech. No one else was listening.

  • Left banquet after dancing started. Annoyed that I am the only one on the team who wants to stick around to get down on the dance floor. Leave with group. Sulk in back seat of car.

  • Home now. Updating blog. Friends are watching tv. Five minute blog update has turned into half hour. Am being yelled at to get off computer.
More later. For those of you who are really curious, or really bored, live results from the swim meet can be found here.
