It’s weird. It seems that the older you get, the more less interesting stuff is interesting. Such things that would be considered entirely lame when you are young that suddenly become the best gifts ever when you age include:

  • A new toilet seat
  • A good carpet cleaning spray
  • Pots/pans
  • Socks/underwear
  • New prescription glasses

In addition to the above list, I got a new pair of goggles for swimming that I’m really excited about. The frames are black with a bit of green on them and the lenes are clear. These will work great for swimming in the pool. The fact that I am so excited about these goggles has led me to seek out more pairs of goggles, so I can have a colletion of goggles. Different colors to suit my mood and different lense tints to suit varying outdoor lighting conditions. I might even feel really frisky and try different styles of goggles. I’ve never been a fan of the independent eye goggles, but I had to borrow a pair during the Santa Barbara triathlon last year and they got me through.


I guess all that is left is to find some speedos that match the green (I’ve been on a green kick lately and have outfitted most of my MTB stuff with green accents) and maybe a new tri suit, too. The icing on the cake would be to get my tri bike repainted green.


Anyone know any good bike frame painters?
