Do you couchsurf?

If so, and if we know each other, would you please vouch for me? I’m just starting on the site, and would like to surf in a couple weeks, but I understand that someone with approximately no history looks kind of sketchy.

In other news, I woke up yesterday at 5 AM, and for some reason, I have the sort of personality that thinks it totally makes sense to go biking a lot instead of going back to sleep. I went to Seward Park and almost saw Mt. Rainier, almost at sunrise. It was cloudy. I froze my toes and had the best croissant, as Cafe Presse opened. I think the baristas didn’t quite know what to make of me. I didn’t quite know what to make of myself.

I hesitate to blog about this sort of thing, as it must make people think I’m Calvin’s dad, or some kind of crazy outdoorsman. Really, it’s a part of my personality that pops up only rarely, and I will not join you if you want to do a similar adventure, because you can’t plan these things. Nevertheless, I hope I never lose this part of my personality.

In other other news, I’m quite excited about things! It may be a time of great change! I may have just planned the next like decade of my life! I’ll keep mum though, because I’m really just throwing out theoretical ideas; we’ll see what actually comes to fruition.

This is not a bad thing.

Done :D
Where are you thinking of surfing? I’ve never done it in the US… my first experience was when I went to the UAE!

Thanks! Chiang Mai, Thailand. After thinking about it a bit, I think I’ll just meet some fellow surfers for a coffee/drink this time, as my profile is so sketchy. (plus, lodging is cheap.)
