And a little bit of that, I think, will be the order of the day!
On the Olympic eligible swimming front, national world championship teams are currently being established north and south of the border. Canadian trials results can be found here. The women's 50 breaststroke was pretty exciting yesterday in Montreal, when 15 year old phenom Amanda Reason went :30.23 in the 50 breast and set a new world record! Update: CBC's video of the event can be found here. South of the 49th, Aaron Piersol was under 52 seconds for a world record in the hundred back. And Mr. Phelps is swimming up a storm, so Worlds promises to be full of exciting competition!
Glowing Orb Watch: It is currently visible in the sky — so people will be much happier today. Especially those of us who were caught in one of the downpours yesterday! Although there were bright spots — after my swim I thought I'd get takeout from the Chinese restaurant on the corner, but ended up eating in with old friends who were already there! And while Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is weaker than the earlier films, it is still an enjoyable way to spend an evening. Plus Scrat! Who doesn't love Scrat!?! And as an aside I note that Simon Pegg has had some plum parts of late.
Bluesfest has begun up on LeBreton Flats, so The Boarder was quite occupied last evening. He clearly preferred Jeff Beck to some of last year's offerings. At least he wasn't "singing" back at him!
As the glowing orb is visible, I've just finished washing the Long Pants. Hopefully they won't be pressed into service for a while! There are some towels in the dryer (Heaven knows I go through enough of them!), so more swimming can occur this week. Hopefully a pond swim this evening. And it will be a very late night, as I report at midnight for an 00:30 MRI!
