Olympics 2012

I love watching the Olympics, love watching the excited faces on the kids walking into the stadium smiling at the crowds. Its like nothing and no one can get them down. They have a chance to show the world how amazing they are. But it's the countries no one's heard of with maybe 3 or 4 athletes that I am most inspired by. No matter what they will compete for their country and make them proud.

The first Olympics I remember is Munich 1972 and watching Mark Spitz win so many gold medals. I also remember the tragedy too but don't want to go there. I definitely won't divulge my age at the time then I really will feel old. I have watched every one since then, have watched the countries with their oh so serious athletes who looked like smiling might break their faces. Have seen the Americans dominate just like the Russians and Germans. But what I really think I love the most is the Olympics now and how all the countries come together and cheer each other on. We even know the gay athletes who are out and proud. Talk about inspiration. And the kids with their cell phones out last night sending Insta-gram pics back to their homes. Tweeting what they were feeling to the entire world. And smiling....they all are smiling...How awesome is that?

This is what we need right now. People leaving their problems behind and coming together as one to cheer on the athletes they love. We could learn a lot from them.....

Go team U.S.A. and all the underdogs!!!!

My New Title

A few days ago a friend of mine called me a slacker in regards to my updating on my blog. Not that I would ever admit to this person that they are right, I chose instead to take the higher road and explain to them how I'm just not that exciting.....At least not enough to blog daily. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

This explanation was not good enough for said friend.Yes, this person knows me all to well and can smell the bullshit from across the world (literally).

They said that excuse won't work this time.So I decided to finally give up on the excuses and go with what I know........

Why yes I believe the following definition could at some point or another be about me----

slacker [ˈslækə]
1. a person who evades work or duty; shirker

2. Informal
a.  an educated young adult characterized by cynicism and apathy
b.  (as modifierslacker culture

But I prefer to be known as this:

scrimshanker - a shirker

Sounds way cooler-------

So from now on you may all refer to me as:

Queen Embry Scrimshanker
