Quick update

The scissorknot you know and love well probably just the first part is now a certified SCUBA Diver. I went on a little trip to Ginnie Springs in Florida this weekend and finally got my five dives in to get to level 1. Now I am able to SCUBA diver with out an instructor present. The place was nice but dear god was it redneck central. The two nights I was there, two idiots arguing at the top of your lungs kept me awake. I guess the morons forgot they were in a public place and not everyone want to hear it. I do have to admit that I did have some fun at the some of their expense. I ended up getting to the campsite around 11:30 (Would have been around ten but I kept getting lost, yeah I am shit with out a navigator riding shot gun). So I am trying to find out campsite (Turkey Roost, yeah it is that country). And there are drunks all along the road and every time I pass them they had to yell. It has been quite a long time since I had heard what I have come to call "The Call of the Douche Bag" or "The Call" for short. If you have ever been in out somewhere and some Douche Bag yells for no reason that is "The Call." So on Saturday my dive buddy Keenan and a few of the other people are sitting around our camp watching people who are tubing down the Santa Fe River) How they can do that I do not know it is so boring just floating down a river). And of course there are several people doing the call. That is when I relay my theory about "The Call". It goes like this. Whenever a Douche Bag gets separated from his fellow group of douche bags he emits this really loud and really annoying cry "The Call of the Douche Bag" AKA "The Call". They do this so they can locate fellow Douche Bags and feel better because when a Douche Bag is separated from his fellow bags he gets nervous. So the very next day we are getting ready to go diving when a guy in the group, who is a bit on the douche bag side "starts to do 'The Call'". Keenan and I look at each other and all I could say was "See what I mean?"  It is great when you can make fun of people and they not idea what you are talking about. So yeah the SCUBA diving was fun but I am so not a camper (I slept in my truck). Now I will be getting my Diver's card in the mail in a few weeks and I am thinking about going again.

Way cool! I've long wanted to scuba dive. My mother tried it years ago inSri Lanka and said it was the most magical thing ever.

We can train here in False Bay, but the water's icy and it's the home to great white sharks. We'll need a bigger boat.

Where do you think you'll dive next?

It is. It is really hard to explain because it is one of those things you have to do to truly gasp how wonderful it is. It is so peaceful and being in a completely different is amazing.

I have no idea. I will probably have to check with the Dive Locker and see when they have some more trips coming up.

LMAO!
"The Call of the Douchebag" sounds like it should be a nature documentary on the Discovery Channel, only really, really funny.

Congratulations on your scuba card. And just for the record, I hate camping, too.

That would have been awesome. I may just have to take a camera with me the next time I go. You have to admit that would be hilarious to see.

Yeah sleeping outside is so not for me. I have four fucking bug/spider (I do not know which one) bites on my body because of that.

YES!
Definitely bring a camera...

If they are kind of hard and bumpy, and hurt as well as itch, they're probably spider bites.

UGH. Gimmee a clean hotel suite with room service any day.

Yeah that is what they are. Damn spiders.

I do not need room servies but yeah I need a bed and it has to be indoors.

Seriously, not even that mosquito netting crap... I hate that whiny buzzing sound they make.

Don't even get me started on the size of the flying cockroaches down here...

{{shudder}}

I like room service because for once, I can have coffee without the sound of cats wailing for attention.

Only bugs that sting and bite annoy me. My spider bites are almost finally gone and it has only been a month since then.

I don't know why, but spider bites take longer to go away. Nasty little fuckers.

STOMP.

I bet you missed me
Ha ha, I knew I wasn't completely worthless. I bet you must of missed me riding shot gun with all my map skills. So would have gotten you there. :D And were you driving the really nice truck? Lucky you, plenty of room to sleep in that thing.

Re: I bet you missed me
Yes I was really missing you when I was driving around Florida at night praying to god that I did not hear banjo music.

Yeah I borrowed the white one. It was nice because it rained every day and I got to laugh at people who had to run and put up their tent.

Ozsome! I could barely get through snorkeling, I don't think I'd ever be able to SCUBA dive. ;) Cool.
