The Olympics are over.

I must admit, I was getting a little bored with nothing but the Olympic coverage on television. I always love watching the opening ceremony, but then I find myself easily bored by people running and jumping and swimming. Omg, I can do that too!

yawn!
figure 3: Georgia finds herself bored with the Olympics

Ok, maybe not as fast, but I still have those very same skills. I’m a highly skilled person. And sometimes this highly skilled person wishes that the television would deliver something other than running and swimming!

I must admit, that dirt bike racing thing was pretty entertaining – when they were falling off and crashing into one another and stuff.

And the Russian/Georgian volleyball match was politically fun.

Oh, and watching Hamish and Andy try their luck at ‘ghosting’ army officers was also pretty hilarious. I was entertained. (see: http://www.fox.com.au/shows/hamishandandy/beijing)

But like, running in a straight line, whatevs says I! We need more entertaining sports! (No offence to track stars and whatnot, you guys have some serious discipline and motivation and I have some serious respect for that.) I’m thinking fire eating, hula hooping and sleeping could be some pretty epic sports. And maybe a pie eating contest or two? I’ve always enjoyed watching people stuff themselves silly.

Well, that’s my two cents worth for now. I am still working away at thist bloody Criminal Law assignment (see post: lol!) and I must complete it tonight! Ugh…

Happy Monday!

British history is an interesting one, especially when taught by the monotone man, who is actually one of my favourite lecturers – no sarcasm at all.

Shout outs very quickly to my first two comments and also to Sam (who is sitting next to me) and Julia – who are both aging by a WHOLE year tomorow! (Twenty and eighteen respectively.)

Now, where were we? Ah yes, British history, the first world war to be exact. Not my favourite war – that’s the Russo-Japanese war of the early 1900s – but still a great war in itself.

Speaking of war – excuse me America, whatchu doing trying to boss Russia around? Sure they invaded Georgia (my sister in spirit, seeing as we came to exist almost at the same time) but hello! America! Who haven’t you gone to war against? Seriously. Get out of Iraq and then MAYBE Russia will listen to you. They don’t like hypocrites, even if they are hypocrites themselves. (As all countries are.)

Yeah, that’s all I’ve really got to say on that topic, besides: “GO GEORGIA!”, seeing as I must support my kindred.

Speaking of which, apparently Georgia and Russia are playing eachother later today in the Olympics volleyball, thrilling stuff. Should be a very interesting match – maybe that battle will prove a huge decider in the winner of the war? Maybe not. Either way, I’m going to try and catch it on tv.

So, with my (unofficial) namesake and her old mother land at war, I find myself torn between my Socialist beliefs (such of which once tried to exist in Russia) and my sisterland, wondering who has the right intentions. Only so much can be reported in the news.

I shall continue to watch this conflict closely, as should you, and hopefully the outcome is one that makes me smile. GO GEORGIA! (No, really.)

Gone.

p.s. please stop the fighting.

p.p.s. where in the world is kt?
