happy end of the week

happy fridee (as my old, old boss used to say).

perhaps with the olympics being held in my home town, perhaps the media coverage has been better than in previous years or perhaps there are more canadian athletes to cheer for, but for the first time in years i've been tuning in with regularity to watch the olympics (although, i think tonight will be the last night that i will be crying in front of the tv.)

despite my anti-olympics stance (what with my sadness over the use of tax-payer's money that only an elite group of people will have access to, the financial burden that the citizens in the GVRD will have to bear and the displacement of marginalized people) i can't help but feel giddy and excited whenever an announcer even mentions, the richmond oval, the pacific coliseum or cypress mountain.

and then actually seeing the landmarks on tv is like seeing someone you know flash onto the television for a moment and you want to point to everyone around you and say, 'hey, look! i know that person!'

hmm such mixed feelings i have towards this athletic spectacle. so i shall sign off with pedobear is a 2010 mascot?

have a great weekend and stay warm and cozy fellow torontonians!

I felt the same way about the olympics and then couldn't help but get caught up in it all!
