Tried to get up this morning to meet Annika for a dawnie. I mean I really tried. Hard. But I just couldn’t do it. When the alarm and the coffee maker both went off at 5:45 am, I was up and out of bed…for about 15 seconds. But as quickly as the momentum to go shot me out of bed, it rapidly dissipated and I turned off the coffee maker and the iPod and crawled right back into to bed. Just couldn’t do it. It was so dark and gloomy and I was just, well, so tired. I couldn’t even muster the wherewithal to send her a text message to say that I was flaking. Just crashed. Hard.
When I finally managed to peel my eyes open at about 7 am, I sent her the text I owed her… “2 laze.” I did a quick surf check at the pier about 8:15 am to see what I missed. Absolutely nothing. It was utter and total lamesauce. Size is back up and shape is way down. Close-out city. Damn SW swells. Please, please, please can we have some NW swells already.
And for those of you monitoring the countdown – one week from tomorrow and I’m off to Fiji.
