Здравствуйте, друзья! That'd be "Hello, Friends!" in Russian. Ohh yes, I've got a major case of Putin Fever. Juuust kidding he seems like a raging D but I do love me some 'lympics so...Sochi 4 Lyfe. At least until like, mid-next week when the 2014 Winter Games are but a distant memory and I've moved on to some other temporary obsession.
But for now! It's nothing but curling and speed skating and two man bobsledding round these parts and I maaaay have completely forgotten to document my ever-important life. So in honor of this XXII Olympiad, may I present, with limited comment...
Five Olympians Keeping It Awkward This Week:
I mean....yes, your eye infection does seem uncomfortable but you're only making it worse by incessantly talking about it. I think the appropriate action in these situations is to confidently power forward as though nothing is wrong, not call attention to the problem. I mean, that's a move I would pull.
And if you're behaving socially in a way Liz Ho might ... you're doing it all very, very wrong.
I know, I'm the worst. This poor guy just saw his life's hopes and dreams and hard work crush beneath him on the ice and even managed to get up and keep skating and the closest I'll ever get to the Olympics is right here on my couch eating tostitos but people face planting is never not funny.
Am I wrong?
(DIS) honorable mention along with Abbott: ALL of the male figure skaters. Allegedly the premier atheletes in their sport and not a single one made it through without falling?! A disgrace, I say. A DISGRACE.
Strike One: With one exception for Anne Lamott, I strongly disapprove of white people with dreadlocks.
Strike Two: WHAT are you wearing. This is the Olympics, dude, show some respect!
Ok, mostly this awkwardness reflects upon me. The hijinks (see: gum chewing on the podium!) and "fashions" of slopestyle snowboarding have revealed what a deeply prudish and conservative granny I truly am.
Unzipped her skating uniform and forgot she was 100% topless underneath. YOU GO GIRL!!
(Also: how is she speed skating sans sports bra? You srsly go girl.)
Just awkward for the rest of us pathetic schlubs who have to wake up every morning and contend with the cold, hard truth that we'll never ever be as perfect as Davis and White.
Annnnd the end. Gold Medal in the "Laziest Blogger Competition: Short Performance."
What is your fave Olympic moment?? Let's dish!
