Three Things Thursday

1. I didn't quite need the ark today. But almost. Actually, if I had left my office about 2 hours earlier that ark would have come in handy since we got about 2 inches of rain in a 1.5 hour period. The street in front of my office had turned into Little Lake Waugoo. And even though the water had receded by the time I left for the night, I ended up going to the YMCA since it still looked like it was going to pour at any moment. 2.3 miles on the treadmill and 13.7 miles on the spin bike later, I left the YMCA. And it was raining. Again.

2. I'm sad the Tour de France is coming to an end on Sunday. I usually end up catching the end of the stage each day during my lunch break. And yes, I was rooting for Lance Armstrong to pull out that stage victory on Tuesday. Sigh. It's been a good run for him though. But did anyone catch it today? That finish, with the fog/mist/clouds? So eerie looking. But super cool.

3. I'm not a huge TV watcher. But I've noticed that Minute to Win It and Wipeout are two shows that I find myself having to watch each week. Mindless. Entertaining. And there's just something about watching the Wipeout contestants get smacked and tossed into the water while trying to go across the big red balls. Humorous.

I'm sad about the tour coming to an end too. But then I won't have to block out the world until I watch it on Tivo. And I'll also get about 3 hours back not watching it. Though i'll probably waste that on the internet I avoided using so I didn't know who won each day.

My parents were trying to fly back into Milwaukee and couldn't because of all the rain up there.
