Grad student/future crazy cat lady. Virginia born, Mississippi livin'. I like sports, science, baking, cross stitch, TV, books, and lots of other stuff.
Bye bye, Sochi Olympics. I don’t know what I’m going to do with my time now. Like, maybe I will actually sleep at night?
" he thought she looked just like a large pale toad. She was rather squat with a broad, flabby face, as little a neck as uncle Vernon, and a very wide, slack mouth. Her eyes were large, round and slightly bulging. Even the little black velvet bow perched on top of her short curly hair put him in mind of a large fly she was about to catch on a long sticky tongue"
I’m a sucker for moments in the Olympics that aren’t about winning medals. You know, the classic, cheesy moments that will end up in commercials 4 years from now praising the Olympic spirit. So dear lord, do I love me some Jeremy Abbott right now. Dude crashed, HARD, into the wall at the beginning of the short program, curled into the fetal position in obvious pain for several seconds (but it seemed like minutes), then GOT BACK UP AND FUCKING NAILED EVERY OTHER MOVE IN HIS PROGRAM. He had to switch things up/go super fast through the rest of his program to fit in all the elements but he did it, TOOK THE LEAD, and qualified for the next day of skating.
MAN do I love Olympic men’s figure skating.
Also, one of his deductions was a point for “excess interruption.” This is my new favorite phrase. If someone bugs me for too long I’m going to deduct a point from them for excessive interruption.
