it's almost time!!

What a sad way to start the Olympics -- RIP luger Nodar Kumaritashvili of Georgia. He was only 21 =(

I'm packing at the moment while the Olympics preshow is on the telly. Love the Donald Sutherland commercial. The camera battery is recharging. The mp3 player is syncing. And it's still bloody raining in Vancouver/Whistler! No rain, they need snow!!

The fact that we are the only country to host multiple Olympics but never won a gold is being harped all the time. Which ever athlete does this first will be hailed as a hero LOL And if we don't win hockey gold, we may have a revolt. Seriously. I watched a hour-long special on the choosing of the men's team the other day. You know when it's the Olympics when I start watching stuff like that!

OK, back to packing and cleaning my place (which is still a mini-disaster zone from the reno).

Do us proud, Vancouver opening ceremony! T-minus 22 minutes!!!

ETA: Why is the NBC feed on a delay? And Chinese Taipei Taiwan represent!! =)

ETA2: Damn, how tight is Nelly Furtado's dress?! And I just need to say that I'm jealous of Shaun White's hair.

ETA3: That projection floor is amazing. I loved the orcas swimming across. Sarah M!

ETA4: kd lang's voice is gorgeous. Uh oh, glitch on the cauldron! Of all the things to go wrong, not the cauldron! So, Gretzky lights the outside one. Look at the rain! And all the crazy people running along with the cars.

My sister and I were talking about Shawn White's hair! It's GORGEOUS!!

I am so jealous that you're going!! I've been wondering when you were leaving. What events are you going to see?

During the pre-show, CTV was in the athletes' holding area and talked to Shaun White. I don't know what they talked about (Biden, I think?) cause I was fixated by his hair.

I leave Sunday morning :) I don't have tickets for anything -- wasn't sure about timing, if I was even going to go, etc -- so my cousin & I are just going to wing it.

That's so awesome! Hope you get to see some fun stuff. But just being there will be pretty amazing, I'd think!! I can't wait to see your pictures and hear all about it!!

HAVE SO MUCH FUN!

I'm sure you'll have a great time - there seems to be a great vibe in the air.

The orcas were sit-up-straight amazing, weren't they? And I don't know who the little girl singing the anthem was, but kd lang wiped the floor with her, poor thing.

No Shaun White on my coverage, but his hair is looking very rock star at the moment!

What 'may'? Start living in fear now, and save time later.

Yes, kd lang was about twenty-seven different kinds of awesome, and so were the orcas.

Bring back pics!

Our country will implode if we don't get hockey gold.

I forget how awesome kd lang is cause she's so low key. Her version of "Crying" with Orbison rules.
