The Canadian Women’s Hockey Team is the best in the world. Period, Full stop.
10 points to Gryffindor if you can guess what colour medal we won.

Canada just kicked some serious former Communist ASS, and Clara Hughes got a bronze. Not a bad day..
On a darker note, I’m so stressed some of the excess stress is leaking out of various crevices. Love going home, but doing work on the plane takes away some of the fun…

Update: What is this? Two MORE medals?! I need to keep up better...
A gold and silver in the Woman's Two-Person Bobsleigh!! That's 3 MEDALS today! :)

Watching Joannie Rochette tonight, I didn’t know whether my heart was breaking or whether I was happy for her. To see her skate a beautiful, clean program considering the circumstances was absolute amazing. But when she started to cry afterwards…. it was predictable, but I still admit to tearing up a little. I can’t imagine what she’s going through…

Medal count is 6 Gold, 4 Silver, 1 Bronze.

Virtue and Moir for the win!!
I actually watched their routine and it was beautiful. Sore losers Italy were interviewed and said it wasn’t “dancing”, but I stand to disagree. Plus, another lovely costume on Virtue!
The shameless romantic in me wants them to be dating, only because they seem like they belong together. Cross your fingers!
…is it sad that I’m hoping for someone’s else relationship harder than my own? sigh…

I get so emotionally attached to the secrets of people I don’t know, mostly when they are similar to mine.

There’s some serious bad luck floating around these games. First was the unfortunate death of the Georgian luger, and now it’s been reported that the mom of Joannie Rochette, the Canadian female figure skater (and one of my faves), has passed away just a few days before Joannie’s event. Sooo sad!

In other news, Melissa Hollingsworth (skeleton) was doing a press conference, and she was apologizing to Canada for not doing so well. CTV then went on the street, where people sent messages to her saying how proud they were and that results don’t matter. What a Canadian thing to do, on both sides! I’m so proud of this country right now, just cause you realize how much work is put into these few minutes of competition. Obviously the pressure’s huge, and I’m so glad that it’s not all just about the medals.


Update: Not going to lie, I'm a little peeved right now that we lost to the US in hockey. 
Regardless of all I said above, that game was shit.
We have another medal though! Kristina Groves, silver in 1500m speed skating! woot!

Today is a mediocre day. The CTV feed is being a fail again, just when I need the procrastination. I’ve discovered that my 12-page beast of an essay is due on March 2. That wouldn’t be so bad, if I weren’t coming back from a weekend-long trip that night. So, doing the math there, I only actually have until Friday morning. My progress so far? 2 sentences. Yipes. Luckily the topic is cool, but that’s still a lot I would have to say about it…..

Plus, I haven’t exercised in days, and it’s starting to catch up with me. I don’t have body issues, but the idea of being a card carrying member of the Winter Chub Club is getting to me. I hate going to the gym, and the pool depresses me now. Sigh… rock and a hard place scenerio here, people. I should probably put the cookie down, but I really don’t want to.
