No, really. I mean it. In a good way.
When I married Bill and married into his family, I gained, among other things, three more nephews and another niece.
I've mentioned Joe before, in this blog - he's the only one of them who lives nearby. The others are scattered - a nephew out in the Seattle area, one in the DC area, and the niece is in Florida.
Well, today I'm talking about the nephew in DC.
Meet DC Rainmaker.
He competes in marathons and triathelons and all sorts of other "thons" and "elons" here, there and everywhere. He also cooks, is an awesome photographer, travels extensively, and blogs about all of it.
He also does stuff like this.
Anyway, he has entered a competition sponsored by Quark Expeditions to be the official blogger on an expedition to Antarctica. The winner will be announced on September 30th, 2009, and the journey to Antarctica will take place in February 2010.
And I want him to win because A) it would be extremely cool (no pun intended), and B) he's my nephew, after all, and C) he'll do an awesome job blogging and photographing the trip, and we can all live vicariously through him for a few weeks.
All you have to do is register here (to prove you're a human being) and then log in and vote.
Quick, painless, and free.
I'd be ever so grateful.
