You can safely read this - there are no Olympics spoilers, nothing is revealed!
My husband had already seen the paper when I got up this morning and I told him not to tell me who won the men's figure skating. I wanted to see the competition and I wanted it to be a surprise. And I avoided the morning news that I always watch - it was so hard to not follow my usual routine. D'oh.
So instead of running my errands (gee ... I wonder what we're going to eat for dinner tonight?!!), I just plopped myself in front of the TV this morning and watched my DVR of the men's figure skating from last night. My heart was in my throat, it made me so nervous!!! I kept looking at my lap, I could barely lift my head up and watch and when I did, I looked through my fingers. Shiver shiver shake.
In case you haven't watched your DVR or Tivo yet, I'll let you discover who won yourself. :)
My favorite, ice dancing, starts tonight, cannot wait! I can still remember Torvill and Dean, from 1984, skating to Bolero. Funny how some things leave such lasting impressions on you.
I guess I had better be off to the market. PHOOEY! I had a wonderful creamy polenta with gorgonzola and roasted cherry tomatoes at a restaurant recently and I think I'll see if I can find a recipe and give it a shot.
We're hoping to get in to see the Oscar nominated animated short films this weekend and if we're lucky the live action shorts too.
What are you up to this weekend? Wishing you lots of fun or relaxation, whatever it is you're in need of!
