July's Act o' Random Lunacy

So I'm never one to pass up an opportunity to do something 'different'. But, this one comes under the category of Extremely Different. Picture fifteen people, on a morning when I had to scrape the ice off the windscreen of my car, getting naked and jumping into Wellington harbour in the name of fun. Most folks wouldn't do it. In fact most folks (the sane ones) were cosy in their beds (grist, beagl..) at 6.30am.

However, your intrepid Tats and kimeros were taking the plunge, bravely I might add. 30 seconds of immersion, a blue nipple or four, frozen toes and some shrinkage that I tried to avoid looking at, then long hot shower at Freyberg Pool.

This is the second year I've done this, last year it was windy and 'orrible and there was this dude going around trying to recruit people to a 'naturist' club. This year it was frosty and there were spectators. Eeek! Nothing to see here, move along, move along...

Anyway, the bait was $500 potential prize money and I won it. Yay me! Even yayer, Kim and I agreed beforehand to share if either of us won, so op-shopping it is as soon as she's back from Auckland. hesperus, where was that shop in Johnsonville again? *rubs hands together at the prospect of new old clothes*

Right, what's next?
