olymp... yaaaawwwnn....

I'm Feeling: ready for spring!!
Background Noise: Rio by Duran Duran

Confession: I love watching the Olympics, but I cannot stay awake to see how they end. I don't remember this from childhood... perhaps because my parents usually taped stuff we like to watch and we'd wait until it was convenient to put the tape in. Perhaps it's a side effect of living in the Eastern Time Zone now... Maybe I'm just plain turning into an old woman. Whatever it is - I can't make it much past 10:30pm... and it always seems like that's when the interesting stuff is coming on! I missed the aerials (fancy flippy ski jumps), the end of pretty much every figure skating event that's happened so far... bummer. I would say I'd try again tonight, but I really like getting my sleep. Maybe I'll try taping it...

It's lovely outside today - 38 degrees and sunny. I wish Michigan's weather was a little more reliable, and this could be taken as a sign of spring's imminent arrival. But alas, we'll have single-digit weather again next week, rest assured. I'll take what I can get, when I can get it though. It's a nice day today. This morning as I was walking across campus to a meeting, I heard birds chirping. Fabulous. Posted by Picasa
