Apparently,mittens aren't the only thing Canadian Olympic fans are crazy about. As an avid spectator of the winter games (from home,on my couch),I have noticed that one sound can be heard above all others during events. It isn't screaming (though there is plenty of that) and it isn't applause (who can clap while wearing those red mittens?). It's cowbell. When Shaun White was completing his amazing gold medal-winning run;cowbell.As Lindsey Vonn skied her way to victory;cowbell and last night,when Jon Montgomery won Olympic gold in men's skeleton; more cowbell. We can't get enough cowbell! In my opinion the cowbell is completely useless as a musical instrument (just don't tell that to the Beastie Boys or Blue Oyster Cult) But as an Olympic-level noise-maker,it earns an A+ for being both distinctive,and loud.
Speaking of distinctive and loud (ha ha),my mani for today is another Pollock-ized Konad using plate M70. The base colour is OPI DS Reflection,and the stamp colours are konad special polish in white,and China Glaze 2030.
both indoors with flash no base or topcoat.
By way of an explanation, one of the spectators told a reporter that the waving a cowbell to show your appreciation is much easier than clapping.Truth be told,I don't actually mind the cowbell.However,I do have an issue with the fact that whenever I hear it I think "All our times have come...here but now they're gone..." And then 'Don't Fear the Reaper' is stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
It's a good thing I like that song.

Have a wonderful day!
