Pinch me

house of cards

Hi everyone. Sorry for the late post.

I’ve been binge watching House of Cards Season 2 all day.

I’m on Episode 10 of 13 right now. I’ve taken breaks for dog walks and meals and noteworthy Olympic events.  And later this evening — if I haven’t already completed the season — I’ll have to call a hiatus to watch a very important college basketball game (UK/Florida).

If it weren’t snowing again, this would be the PERFECT DAY.

The book of love

While I watched the Olympics last night, I did the only thing I could ever medal in —

Cleaning out closets.

I am world class both at organizing what I have and purging what I want to sell and/or give away.  And my timing couldn’t be better!

Today is not only Valentine’s Day, it’s also:

book giving day

After my big closet purge, I have two big boxes of books that I am going to donate to my local library.

Now, what could say love more than that?

The Olympic domino effect

When you visit Sochi, the water in the sink looks like this.

When you wash your face in that water, your eyes look like this.

When your eyes look like this, you have to give your prime-time Olympics anchor chair to Matt Lauer.

And when you let Matt Lauer anchor the Olympics in prime-time, babies cry.

Don’t make babies cry, Bob Costas.

Stay away from shitty water.

Of mice and women

sochi logoI arrived home from Florida tonight in time to watch the Winter Olympics Figure Skating Team Competition.

The US was sitting near the bottom in 7th place…then the ice dancing team of Meryl Davis and Charlie White — the reigning Olympic silver medalists — knocked one out of the park and moved the Americans up to 3rd.

Meryl Davis looks like a china doll on the ice and sounds like Minnie Mouse.  I get a bit of a complex just listening to her speak.

Is this what a woman is supposed to sound like?

Raise your hands

There may still be questions about the United States’ participation in the Winter Olympics in Sochi…

But the team has my support!

Want your own way cool mittens?  Go to TeamUSAShop.com to support the US athletes in Russia.

Then we can meet on the street and do the secret Olympics handshake (which I don’t know, but I’m hoping you do).
