days left until the Charles Party!

Nothing says good bye 2008 like a bottle of Hennessy.

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Spotted between Western Ave and Weeks.

Finally, a rowing picture. Somehow, Hash ended up being semi-translucent. Maybe he's just moving too fast.

Sunday, December 28, 2008

Decided that it was too warm not to do something, so decided to suck it up and ride. This is the "after" picture.

Saturday, December 27, 2008

Looks pretty promising. Now if I can only get this cold to go away. :(

Friday, December 26, 2008

More footage from the Christmas Day trip to Quabbin Reservoir. Too sick to do AT workouts on the erg, but had to get out of the house somehow.

Yay cross training. (And cameras with self-timers).

Is that a GIANT icicle on your boathouse, or are you just happy to see me?

Sunday, December 21, 2008

It finally stopped snowing this evening. Best part--didn't even have to leave the apartment for this shot.

Saturday, December 20, 2008

In light(or rather, lack thereof) of yesterday's picture, this shouldn't be a big surprise. Probably the last 200m of a 6k for all three.

Friday, December 19, 2008

There are these ice crystals falling from the sky onto Weeks bridge

It was a really rough night on the Charles. And no, it's not frozen!

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Have a safe trip, MVP! We'll miss you here, but don't worry, we'll come and crash, err, visit.

Monday, December 15, 2008

It got a little windy this evening. Those leaves are not normally parallel to the ground. That apparently didn't stop BU from going out. I pity the fools.

Saturday, December 13, 2008

I was very proud of myself for taking this one this morning.

Friday, December 12, 2008

The 400 part of the new lens in action. This isn't all that remarkable, unless you consider that I was on one side of Soldiers Field Road, by Weeks, and the hawk was on a roof of a Harvard building on the other side.

Someone found a very unique way of measuring the level of the water in the RBC parking lot this morning.

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Michelle, do you really need a GPS on the erg? :) This picture courtesy of the new lens.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

From a few days ago--this dude was kayaking, at night, in wind and rain. And you thought we, rowers, were crazy.

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Using Baloo as a prop to demonstrate the newest addition to the lens stable.

Monday, December 08, 2008

I took this picture yesterday, planning to pity MIT for taking out the docks too early. However, today that looks like a pretty wise decision. But on Wednesday, when the monsoon comes, we can make fun of them again!

Sunday, December 07, 2008

The queen is retired, long live the king.
2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. Vive le Dark Side!

Igor's got a new toy--a tripod! Thanks to Gary and Marina for the delayed birthday present. Or an early festivus gift. Whatever. It's awesome.

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

Old school! Thanks to Maria and the sun/wind which agreed to cooperate for a good photo day.

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

Man, it's like Trevor time on the blog or something.

Monday, December 01, 2008

Given when Pete started, he might still be erging when this gets posted. Nothing says "Happy Holidays" like erging under a Christmas tree?

Saturday, November 29, 2008

Parrots living in a utility pole? Eh.. Parrots living in NYC? Hmm... Parrots living in a utility pole IN NYC? In November? WTF????

Friday, November 28, 2008

This is totally mind boggling. Congratulations, Niell, Tanya and Anthony.

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

By Wednesday, conditions became downright spectacular.

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Conditions were really shitty, so I suppose I should post the picture of the jackasses that beat us on Saturday. :) Just kidding--it was a lot more fun and much harder than it would have been without Sean and Trevor. And then it wouldn't be racing. Thanks for the race, guys.

Monday, November 24, 2008

And just like that... it's gone. Though it's mostly melted now, it's still the first freeze. Should be fine for tomorrow am, I think.

Sunday, November 23, 2008

A fitting tribute to my favorite chocoholic. Margs, I really wish you were here for this. You would have really had a blast. Five and a half pounds of chocolate will never be put to better use. You were fondly remembered, and will be greatly missed by all who were there. And there were a LOT of people there--you sure did pack a room. Two, actually. I just wish you were there to see it, and the room was packed for a very different reason.

Also, thank you to my brother Alex, Pete, John P., John W., Amelia, Miranda, Claire, Eugene, Becca and Gary for either helping out with the baking/chocolate making here, baking on their own, providing recipes, or bringing cakes all the way from NYC.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

First race back. Thanks for the ride, Aleks.

I wasn't there to see the car that went into the Charles today. But if I was, I bet I'd see those guys. This one's for you, Anna.

This was taken right next to the swing dock at RBC, at 9:30 this morning.

Saturday, November 15, 2008

The fall speed order is a VERY serious regatta.

Friday, November 14, 2008

Bike for Igor, boat for Pete, fun for everyone!

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Amazingly enough, this was also taken on the Charles--at the Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, MA.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

And sometimes, the blog post just really jumps out at you. :)
