With a little more time I have researched my new latin motto "Velox Ocius Pango" and realized it actually means Fast Faster Fasten. That's right fasten, as in to affix. That makes my motto even better.
In the comments on my last post, somebody named "Reid" accused me of parodying Ross Bennett, an actual sailor. I'll admit I'd never read his blog but know of said Ross through Sailing Anarchy and believe me I would never use this blog to parody anybody but myself. The Laser Twins, Litoralis and Tillerman, led me down the mock-a-real-sailor road in the comments section. Blame them.
And, finally, possibly, the last word on this 2012 Laser Olympic Campaign. Joe offended me as part of his continual bashing of the Laser. I get it...he hates the Laser. Not sure why but he does. I can see how he's worried that I'm becoming part of the Greater Laser Conspiracy with my newfound Olympic Campaign (Velox Ocius Pango!) but this time he's crossed the line with this remark:
"You know that the world is lost when a well regarded sailor is seen in this bleeping boat!"
Ummm, since when did I become a "well regarded sailor"? Who regards me? How did that happen? Has Joe forgotten this and this and many other escapades similar to these? Why do I even blog if people aren't seeing the truth in my writing?
