To Jolena...

I'm on top of the world, lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
You're love's put me at the top of the world

I saw the end of a real honest to goodness triathlon today, from the first person participant point of view... I was not real fast, but I did see the end...

I'm looking forward to seeing the birth of my son in about 8 weeks. Well, it's going to be a ceasarian, so I really don't want to watch, but I'll be there...

I'm tired, I'll have to update this thread later...

Sailed as a crew member aboard the USCGC BARQUE EAGLE (and yes, went to the top of the mast :D)

Which reality show, which game show, which SC anchor, which talk show host, and which future NBA player?
