The Olympics.
I love the Olympics. I watch the entire Opening Ceremony yesterday. Yes, all 5 hours of it! China really did an amazing job with the sets, costumes, technology. I can’t imagine all the logistics that went into setting the whole thing up. Coordination must have been a nightmare! And for those of you who watched the parade of nations part, did you feel sorry for those cheerleaders?! They were standing and waving their arms for 2 hours straight! Craziness!

Oh and you gotta love NBC for streaming the matches now. I don’t have to sift through hours and hours of recorded videos just to watch some badminton..hehe. Besides my DVR doesn’t have much space left.

I spent this morning watching some Fencing, Rowing, Volleyball, and Cycling… all of which were surprisingly fun. I even thought of taking a fencing class (I love those uniforms!).

Btw, I have to say that I hate Yahoo! They seriously need spoiler alerts or a way to turn off all Olympic news because I don’t want to know if so and so won a gold medal before watching it on tv! Fucking idiots. They did this on the last Olympics… and they’re doing it again. Haven’t they learned anything!?

Today, I cleaned the apartment because I haven’t cleaned it in a long time. It was just getting cluttered and just plain ol’ dirty. As you know from my previous post, Lauren stopped by today. We killed some time by going to South Coast. I saw this super awesome trench coat that comes with a super not-awesome price tag. The thing is, I never found a trench coat that fits me till now and I’m tempted to get it. >.< blah. As far as I know, it's on hold for me till the 23rd. Hopefully that'll give me enough time to think about it... or find a cheaper alternative. Ok that's it for now. I think I'm gonna watch some more olympics.

Lauren came over today and we saw American Teen. We were supposed to catch the 4.30 showing but because she woke up late (ahem ahem), we ended up seeing the 7pm showing. When we got to the theatre, we find out that 3 of the American Teen cast (Mitch, Colin, and Jake) were doing a QA. They were standing by the entrance talking with a couple movie goers about the movie.

The thing is, Lauren and I didn’t know too much about the movie aside from what we’ve seen in the trailers so we didn’t really have any questions for them. I wanted to talk to them.. but yeah, I didn’t know what to ask!

Even worse is that the QA session was for the 4.30 showing! So they pretty much left after the movie started. Sigh.

I gotta admit, it’s a good movie… even though it’s a high school movie. You could think of it as a real version of Dawson’s Creek (sans the gay dude). Definitely something I can relate to, and I think I would have loved it even better if I saw the movie while I was still in high school.

Aaron showed this to me today.

Fucking hilarious! I’m sure any of you tweeple out there can totally relate. Now is it any wonder why I plurk instead of tweet? And maybe it’s because I’m lazy, but I find myself plurking more that blogging here. It’s sad that my life is summed up in 140 characters no?
