Ok, so I admit I watched the premiere of Survivor II last night. It was on after the Superbowl, an event in which I had zero interest, so I kept switching from the Superbowl channel to the Japan Skating Championship to Die Hard 2 to the Superbowl channel, waiting for the show to start. I never watched the first Survivor (except part of the last episode, while waiting for my flight in the Philadelphia Airport). I'll likely not watch any more Survivor II episodes (which will be airing on Urban Tapestry practice nights anyway). The Survivor participants in this sequel seem to be more buff and tough than the ones in the first show. Plus is it my imagination, or do some of them hate each other already?

Speaking of Survivor, check out Dot Com Survivor, a free online game.

I woke up a bit sore from the weekend...mainly my upper arms, probably from leaning on ski poles while sludge-wading. Better get back to the gym!

Today's Blatherpic:
Cottage photo. An airhole on the lake; we were careful to avoid these on the way over to the cottage.
