Armchair Ponderings

A few random thoughts come to mind when I'm watching the Olympics:
  • Look at the muscles on those men!
  • Look at the muscles on those women?!
  • How do they DO that?
  • That is AMAZING?
  • I'm tired from just WATCHING this competition!
  • How can I get one of these specimens of strength & endurance to landscape my yard?

one more random thought....i spent friday and saturday painting my bedroom and i am sore all over. saturday night when i finished i watched that 38 year old woman (almost 2 years younger than me) win the marathon and then run 2 or 3 or 4 more laps after she FINISHED.

and i am achy from getting up and down off a chair and squatting repeatedly to cut in the ceiling and walls.

lordy, just dig a hole in that clay yard of yours and bury me, i'm pathetic.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets tired watching the Olympics. I swear I pulled a hamstring the other night!

Lime: You know, I've been meaning to paint my bedroom for Oh, the last 6 months at least (the walls are STILL contractor white) but I haven't been able to get up the gumption or the will. And you know what your comment made me want to do?

NOT WANT TO PAINT MY BEDROOM!

The memories are still to fresh of the aches and pains from painting my daughters room a year and half ago.

And honey, I'd dig you a hole but this damn soil is so hard I'd need to rent a back-hoe, which I'd promptly fall into upon completion.

Katy: LOL! Me too, just getting up off the couch for a mid-Olympic snack!

Hey--I missed you while I was away on vacation? It is NOT EASY to be without internet, let me tell you (and if you would've said that to me 7-8 months ago, I would've rolled my eyes and scorned you.)

Can you believe I haven't seen the Olympics at all? If you recruit one of those athletes to landscape for you, send them over to me next.:)

I watch in total amazement every night saying the same things..of course I add in a few other things like
1) Oh, sure you pass HER off as 20 and she actually looks it, but then you try to convince me those little 3rd graders are 16? whatever dudes..
2) eat that frenchy
3) poor aim? sure, poor aim once.. maaaaaybe twice, but six times? That's assault with a deadly weapon a$$wipe and you should not only be ejected from the game you should be banned from baseball for life AND your team should have an automatic loss..poorsports!
4) oh go ahead and take your gold medals, buncha babies...our silvers mean more anyway because we didn't cheat to get them.

oh I have more, but I think I used up all my bad words last night....

who knew I'd get so into it? Me? a self proclaimed ANTI sports enthusiast...Ha!

See? My fear of exhaustion by osmosis and my complete self-loathing based on my body fat percentage are reason enough for me not to be watching these games.

Michael Phelps chest, however, lures me in every time ...

Hi Christy, missed you too and I'm really hoping I'll be able to glom onto a local network when we go to the beach in a few weeks, otherwise a week without blogging strikes fear into my heart.

Stacie, I wish you lived close by because you would be such a kick in the ass to watch the Olympics with.
:-)

Hi Maternal, I'm partial to Ryan Lochte myself but then my husband has to go and remind me that I'm nearly old enough to be his mother and ruins the entire fantasy.
