It's all about the Olympics. And we watch it all!
Well, not "all". We only have "rabbit ears" on our TV; no cable or satellite, so we are watching whatever is on NBC and trying not to be spoiled. (Yes, we could stream live, but for two late-rising working people, that's a little bit of a tall order.) We do watch pretty much EVERYTHING NBC shows. When we were in Europe over the Summer, promos were constantly on the BBC, with "London Calling" playing (it got so we would drop whatever we were doing to do a 5-second dance when they came on). But in the US, coverage always begins with a mash-up of Olympic suites by John Williams. I'm wondering, what theme music brings the Olympics to you where you live??
Friday I spent most of the day waiting for packages (new projector for the church and blocking mats!) and waiting for the air conditioning service guy to show up. On a related and yet unrelated note, we got a nifty new techie thermostat. I present to you, our Nest:
I noticed I lost a couple followers...I hope it wasn't my Extra-Long Lottlympiad post! Or maybe I offended some Aussies?? Remember, Jim does not speak for the Lottloft...we have no control over his antics. He probably gets all his information from bad 80s movies. Thank you to all 10 of you that actually read to the end, and enjoyed it, even. ;) That post took up a lot of Saturday, actually. Sunday was church, lunch, errands, visit to Dad (where he spoiled the gold medal tennis match for me), more errands, and trying to catch up with the 17 hours of coverage we missed while we were out of the house. I was kind of deliriously happy when I found out coverage ends at 11pm tonight instead of midnight. Holy sleep deprivation, Batman!
And just for fun, let me share a post that brightened my Monday...a really cute post full of bunnies.
|I was shocked to get on the elevator yesterday and see, from the integrated news feed screen, that there are other sports going on right now.|
