Not much time to type, but I'm sitting at a kiosk in the Blue Ridge Mall in Hendersonville. The camp internet is (ONCE AGAIN) not working, and the library is closed, so I came into the mall to ask if anyone knew of an internet cafe in Asheville. Well, while I was asking (in Bath & Body Works), a guy from across the strip was listening and told me I could come to the SunCom kiosk and use his computer. So here I am. :)

Unfortunately there's not that much to tell, aside from the fact that I feel like I got run over by a truck, because we were doing all kinds of crazy dives off the board yesterday and I did a couple of face-plants while trying to do a one-and-a-half (which is a flip and then another half-flip so that you go into the water diving and not feet-first). I didn't feel a thing yesterday, but today my neck really hurts. The equivalent of whiplash, I guess.

Hey Olga, if you still read this, would you ask D to e-mail me? Only if he wants to, I mean :) but I was thinking about him the other day because we haven't talked in so long and I have no idea what he's up to. I wanted to e-mail him, but I have a limited time on this computer. :( So if he feels like it, could you ask him to drop me a line? I don't want to lose contact just because I'm out of the country. :)

Camp's going pretty well; the girls leave on Friday and my co-counselor Christine and I are driving to my aunt's house in South Carolina for a day of real food, real showers, real beds, and normal conversation. I love my girls, but you can literally feel yourself 'dumbing down' when you're around them too long. :)

You guys should hear from me again on Friday. I miss all of you!!!
