Watching the Winter Olympics...hooray! Apolo Ohno is a total doll, and I can't wait to see Shaun White (still a total sweetie). The opening was interesting. Two high points for me were the piece featuring the flying guy, which I found quite moving, and the whales (with spouting action!) swimming across the floor of the venue, which was too short and the coolest thing evar. Also, as much as I love Apolo Ohno, if he shaved his little soul patch I wouldn't complain.

Also also, you can keep your Superbowl commercials; commercials for the Olympics are my faves. The Procter&Gamble one with little kids playing the athletes? My favorite so far. :-)

This meme looks like all kinds of fun.

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal

And there's a comm for it! It's not often that a meme inspires a comm, not that I know of anyway. I'm very tempted.

Too bad this didn't turn up a few weeks ago when the Olympics were in full swing because dude, that would have set the mood perfectly.

If you like skating, Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz, you're in for a treat. According to this article, Justin and Cam may be gliding their way to a theater near you.

Cameron and J-T put their skates on

Hollywood couple Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake are reportedly planning to appear together in a romantic comedy about a pair of love-struck ice-skaters.

According to sources close to the stars, Diaz will play the role of a figure-skater and Timberlake a speed-skater, although one wonders how they would master such techniques in order to make the film believable.

"The whole thing is set at the Olympic Games in the Olympic Village," said a source.

"Cameron and Justin have been working on a number of ideas together and this is one they are seriously considering taking it on themselves."

Cameron should be the speed skater, and Justin should *totally* be a snowboarder. TOTALLY. How much would *that* rock? Shaun White would have a cameo, of course, and we all know how cool hat would be. Actually, Camm'd make a good skier, too, or one off those luge chicks!

Thanks to timberho for the heads up on this one.

So, even though Shaun White was my first official winter games boyfriend, I am also crushing hard on little baby diva Johnny Weir. OMG! Did you catch the little shoulder shimmy as he was leaving the arena the other night? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight out of NSync's choreography, and it was driving me crazy that I couldn't pinpoing the tune, though I could *see* Justin doing it (with 'fro and bandana). Erin gave my brain a nudge and she's right: I think it's a move from I Want You Back. And something I didn't know - apparently the boi worships Justin, which pretty much confirms for me that it was definitely an NSync-inspired move. Bwahahahaha!

I'm watching snowboard cross now, and it looks like fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun! I have so much love for the winter games that it isn't funny. Love, love, love the winter games. Johnny Weir, Boi Diva Exraordinaire, skates tonight. I might have to DVR the competition if I'm still talkng to Dad when it comes on.

Oooh! United Airlines commercial - much love with the animation. Verra nice.

After reading spoilers in Gale's LJ, I stayed up til 2:00 watching Project Runway.

Project Runway Evening Gown Challenge )

Watching the men's free skate. As others of you have noted, there are more than a couple of cute skater boys in the crop this Games. *Really* cute, not "for a figure skater" cute. Wow, Evan Lysacek *nailed* all his jumps! Beautiful program! Have I mentioned that I love the winter games? :-D <---[big winter games lovin' grin]

Edited to add: Emanuel Sandhu is completely gorgeous. Holy hannah! The poor man can't stay on his skates, but great googly moogly, he's a looker.

In other news, I am so in love with this bag. Lindsay Lohan needs to give me her collection. Seriously.

The old man and I didn't do anything interesting for Valentine's. I bought him various assorted snack treats at Odd Lots, and picked up a bucket of chicken from KFC. Bwahahaha! We're livin' large, baby. ::Lance's devil horn hands::

I'm watching women's curling, USA vs. Japan. I've never watched curling before, it's pretty cool. I don't understand a thing, but it's still interesting to watch. I'd like to try it! I want to push the stone, though, I don't think I'd be good at sweeping. I'd probably fall, or trip over the stones that have already been played. Yay, Japan won this round! Yes, I'm a traitor! I can't help it, their stone pushing/pitching/hurling girl was hella good. Yay! USA! You didn't win but you're good too! ::loves::

Talked to a friend of mine today. My old job (stressful! eeks!) has a vacancy, and she's thinking of applying. She applied the last couple of times there's been an opening - as well as a pay increase, she'd jump a few grade levels and go from hourly to salary. I know there's no chance that she'll get it, and I think deep down she knows this too. ANYWAY, I offered to fill her in on some of the shakier aspects of the job so she'd see that though the grass may appear greener, some of it is spray painted. ;-)

Shaun White has got to be the sweetest thing ever. EVER!!! He won snowboarding (half pipe) gold yesterday and he cried! He said he cried because he saw his family and they were crying. What a sweetheart. Also, he's got tons and tons of red hair and is it my fault that I want to see him onscreen as one of the Weasleys' American cousins? Eeeeee! I lurve him.

Man, I love seeing the gold medalists tear up when the anthem is played. Chad Hedrick, speed skater, 5000 meters, first US gold medalist of the games. He's all watery-eyed! He's so proud and happy!

Ahhhh, the winter games. How I love thee.
