My Blood Pressure is 120/84

This means I get to eat more salt, right? Don't you get some kind of bonus for having such stellar blood pressure? Maybe a gold star.
I signed up for a Kilbirnie Pool membership, because the classes are $8 each, and the monthly membership is only $67.50. Plus you get spas, sauna, all water and fitness classes at both Kilbirnie and Freyberg, AND 5 sessions with a personal trainer. I really only wanted cheap swim classes (deep water aerobics, underwater kickboxing), but when they throw in all that extra stuff it's hard to resist having your biceps measured and all your other stats taken.
Despite my efforts to avoid any actual time in the gym part of the facility (obviously some magical mind control process was involved), I ended up with a weight training plan. I went through the plan for the first time yesterday, a day in which I could almost not get out of bed because my abs were so sore from scuba this weekend.
Joe and I are now certified PADI Open Water Divers! I won't go into the details, suffice to say it was one of the more difficult things I've ever done. If I'd known how hard it was, I never would have done it. But I'm glad we did, and I'm looking forward to trying it out in WARM water, with more than 1 meter visibility. Seems if you learn to dive in the winter in New Zealand (like all geniuses do), you're ready to dive anywhere in the world.
So, here's the poll:
Where should we vacation in March?
