A Few Things I Should Have Tweeted

I don't really have very much to say--at least not much to say on one single topic that could possibly be turned into an entire blog post. If I were better at Facebook and Twitter I would, though, have had plenty to say over the last week or so. Sadly I am very bad at Facebook and Twitter. Still, for posterity's sake (or something) I thought I would write down a few of the thoughts I should have tweeted (most of them on the Olympics):

The Opening Ceremonies were lovely--especially the whales, the trees, and the poem. SLC's were better though (not that I am biased at all).

USA! USA! USA!

Must remember to breath while watching Olympic competition.

Crossing my fingers on my right hand seems to offer the best support to US athletes (the baseball in me is very superstitious).

Exactly what are the rules for Curling?

Really must remember that going without air for 4+ minutes is very bad. Just breath.

Russian whining is pathetic.

I hope the Russians finish below 4th place in the medal count--usually I try to be a good sport when watching sports (root for someone not against) but the Russians are really starting to annoy me.

Am heartbroken for
Noelle (perhaps more so than she is) who finished in 4th place by 1/10th of a second.

Had lovely cake at
The Chocolate with lovely friends (including Nemesis, Goddess Divine, Foodie--I know you are jealous).

How is it that I remember so little of the Torino Games? (A few days after having this thought I remembered I was in the UK during the last Games and they don't cover the Games nearly as well as the US does--also my
Visiting Teachers decided to pay me a 2 hour visit during the women's figure skating 4 years ago and I couldn't figure out how to get them to leave.)

I love the sounds of hockey (and not just the sounds of players smashing each other into the glass).

Go USA hockey!

I can't believe the Olympics are nearly over.

Is it possible to love your book group too much? (If you can believe it, I love it even more than the Olympics)

You didn't even happen to mention WHICH lovely cake you had... and I would have fired those visiting teachers.

Book group! I wish I had a book group. I need to F.acebook less and read more......I just can't figure out how to do that!

It's funny, I was just thinking how much I don't remember from the last Olympics! It has been a fun couple of weeks. And you were quite patient with your visiting teachers!
