I spent a very satisfying day yesterday watching the Olympics with R. The weather was gloomy and rainy so we planted ourselves on the couch and cheered on the pairs figure skaters, the speed skaters and the freestyle skiers. Fun fun. I was so happy the American figure skaters landed their fancy schmancy throw, and that the Italian swooped up for the the bronze in the speed skating. I do think "The Exception" is the stupidest nickname ever for an athlete though. Oooh... I am quaking in my skates because I have to race "The Exception". The Flying Tomato and The White Sausage are both much cooler nicknames.
As all these sports were being viewed, I managed 3 rows on my first sock. I had to rip out four because I was turning too early, but I am in a good rhythm now. I am not sure about how the crocheted socks are going to turn out -- the stitches seem to be too loose, so the resulting fabric may be sort of holey. I will persevere though, and see how it all ends up.
Back to the Olympics coverage, I loooved the little scene between Marlena and John from Days of Our Lives about the figure skating scandal in Salt Lake City. Marlena says, "John, it wasn't me, it was the French judge!". Hee hee! Someday I will post a true confessions type post about my love of Days of Our Lives, and the embarrassing amount I watch it.
