The Party is Over, So Take Your Medals and Go Home
-The infamous pants. Loud and proud!
-The closing ceremonies: Some of the performers were a little "iffy" (and that's just me being a music snob who can't stand Avril Lavigne,Hedley,or Nickelback),but I enjoyed our comedy kitsch routine (complete with giant inflatable beaver *tee-hee*).Many have tried,but no one makes fun of Canada better than Canadians. Plus, Neil Young rocks.
-Japadog:Who knew that Japanese-style hot dogs would be so popular? Vancouverites! That's who.
-Flame-haired snowboarders who can fly.
-Speedskating: A sport that is predictably unpredictable.
-The Russian national anthem: It's long...really long,but beautiful. Can't wait for Sochi 2014.
-Figure Skater Joannie Rochette: Skated to win a bronze medal 4 days after her mothers' death.The personification of strength and dignity.
-Canada's short track speedskating team: Executed a brilliant strategy that earned them the gold medal. And they're cute :)
-This guy: Because he's a real Canadian hero :) Now could someone please give him back his hockey gear?
-The Swedish women's curling team.Not only did they beat Canada in a close game,they did it while wearing blue nailpolish. Love!
-The Canadian women's curling team:Played well throughout the entire tournament and came this-close to winning it all. Also,if you've been following the press,their skip is quite the stunner.
-The entire Norwegian Olympic team: Don't hate them 'cause they're beautiful.
So now I'm left with the daunting task of remembering what life was like before the Olympics took over. Usually,I'll slip some Olympic-related tidbit or another into my daily conversation.Most of the time,people engage me because I'm an obsessed weirdo.But some employ the "Wow-that's -really-interesting-I'm-walking-away-from-you-now" ,strategy.
I wonder if there's some kind of support group.
My NOTD is China Glaze Luna.A pretty,gritty,sliver-blue glitter. I love it because it is both uniform,and kind of crazy,what,with all the different types of glitter.I normally don't wear a lot of silver,but this one is cool and wintry.Beautiful.
