Remember how I said I couldn’t wait for the Olympics to be over?
Ok. Maybe not.
But right now, it still holds true, but for different reasons.
Every night I go home now, instead of Moving to London, job searching, washing my bras, reading my books, practicing my Putonghua, or otherwise having a constructive relationship with my brother, I lounge in front of the TV, watching Olympic reruns.
I watch Kobe Bryant dunk basketballs over Yao Ming’s Team China.
I watch Michael Phelps break world records and become the most successful Olympian ever.
Of course, I watch Phelps for other *ahem* reasons too.
I watch the Chinese Men and Women win overall team gymnastics gold medals.
I watch the short Mongolian throw the much taller Kazakhstani to the ground in Judo.
Not that I know anything about Judo. Or gymnastics.
Except that swimmers look great.
I watch Great Britain play the Netherlands in men’s field hockey.
And then get disappointed because the game ended 5 minutes after I’ve just discovered it.
And then I stay up late to see if they’ll show some diving, more Phelps or a snippet of hockey.
And more Phelps.
I can’t wait for the Olympics to be over, so I can get back to Normal Daily Life.
(Oh, did you know Phelp’s website is in 2 languages? Just two. And they are: English and Chinese.
Interesting he’s got it in Chinese….maybe I should look into it some more….)
