Take off for Manhattan

July 2, 2008

The toes and fingers are painted, bags are halfway packed, and the flight is tonight at 9:30.  I couldn’t find “The Lifeguard Makes Me Blush” nail polish (The EC nail polish), but I think I found adequately named ones.  The nail salon couldn’t believe that I was picking colors based on names, but I never was normal.  On the toes we have “Grand Central Carnation” a lovely deep muavy purple.  On the fingers “See ya later Sailor” which is a soft iridescent blue.  Now all you marathon men out there, it is time to take the plunge and get a signature color on those toes and fingers!  (Come on Mark you know you want to!)  The nail person did give me a lecture about placing too much on the names of the nail polish.  I just smiled and nodded.   For the record, I don’t think a nail polish name is going to get me around Manhattan, but if it makes me smile and think happy thought and gives me a giggle, well then I’m all for it.

What else.  Oh yes, I need to post a map of Manhattan outlining the course.  Um I don’t have time for that now.  Perhaps if Leroy is procrastinating he can get one up here for you, as he still has access to do so. 

Mom will be posting updates of the swim, but don’t expect the google pinpoints.  She will explain things the best she can from the information that Jane and Cathy provide. 

Ok, I have to finish up some work stuff and the packing.  I’ll talk to you all when I get to Manhattan.
