Ah Hah!!! ok the subject is in "print" and your talking Olympics and it says up top of page, this is the place to blab away so would it be safe to say... Olympics
See, I'm one of "them" who live in the place where in.. how long did you say... 8 days (and of course 2 years) it will all be in my backyard!!
Does it seem like perhaps I'm NOT an fan of the Olympics? Oh contrare.. I applaud & admire all the hard working atheletes, I do
, and in years past have watched with great anticipation to see if "my" Country might bring home 1 or 2 gold/silver or bronze... no.. my feelings regarding the Olympics has nothing to do with those who enter this competiton, nor the competitive strive to be the best, it's the IOC and the aftermath to those Countries who beg for the opportunity to have their's be "the one". Well, we did it.. we're gonna be the "1" in 2010!
Anyone want a home for 2 weeks, mine will be empty, my ad would read "quiet rural setting, far enough away from all that hustle & bustle so as to provide a "restfull haven" yet close enough to get to and from daily events *roflmao*
I could make a fortune but not nearly enough to make a dent in what will take the rest of what-ever time I have on this earth (which hopefully will be awhile yet), to cover what our "dearly beloved" (in jest) Premier has opted to "donate" for this exhibition... like many countries and a few other provinces who have gone before us here in BC, we're gonna be in debt forever, maybe, if luck is with us, my great great grandchildren will finally see a "paid in full" stamp but I doubt it.. probably be their great great ones *snicker*
Ok so now I've ranted, and how rude of me, I did it in your space.. I do hope you'll be forgiving enough to take this for what it is.. just a rant on the Olympic Commitee, never the Olympic participants nor the countries they represent.. (does that statement save me?)
All that said, I'll be watching the swimming to.. cuz Aussies really will
dominate, they have worked long and hard to improve training techniques beyond what could have ever been imagined!! woo hoo go Aussie's
