The Olympics!

Are over. :( And I missed most of them! Sadness.

However, I did see a lot of the ice dancing and I love it! We stayed up very late to finish watching it one night, and I was SO happy when Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won gold! Their performance was absolutely beautiful in a very simple, exquisite way, and they both seem like such genuinely nice, happy people. It was great!

And there was Evan Lysacek, winner of the gold for mens' figure skating! AHHH!!! I've only seen his Gala Performance, and I must admit I was screaming like a fan girl during pretty much the entire thing! :D You MUST watch it, especially the turns at the end! He's a brilliant skater, and quite good-looking as well. haha

I also enjoyed watching Apolo Ohno speed skate...I remember watching him in the 2006 Torino Olympics and I've liked him ever since! Speed skating is such an insane, intense sport, and really cool to watch. Ski jumping is another one of my favorites, as well as any other sort of skiing, except for the moguls. I find those just sort of painful to watch!

So that's the last of the Winter Olympics until 2014...I'll be almost 21...*gaspeth*. I'm definitely looking forward to the Summer Olympics in 2012, though! But I'll be 19...*cries*... Anyhoo. ;)

Last night we finally watched "Monk" again! My mom, sister, and I are OBSESSED with that show! We're watching all the episodes on DVD, and it took a very long time for Season 4 to come in. We were going into serious Monk withdrawal! But we finally got it last night, and watched three episodes. Yay!

In case you don't know, "Monk" is a TV show about a detective who was removed from the police force after his OCD symptoms exploded into a huge disorder following the murder of his beloved wife, Trudy. However, he's still called by his friend Captain Stottlemeyer to help solve the more difficult cases, but this isn't always easy, as he has phobias of germs, milk, elevators, and practically anything else you could think of! The episodes are always very good, interesting, touching, and absolutely hilarious! We become rather addicted. :) They're also unusually clean for being a mainstream TV show, and very well acted. I definitely recommend it!

Oh, and I was wondering, has anyone noticed the pages I put up? You can find them right under my header. How do you like them?

Yes, I think that's a cool idea to put up a synopsis of your stories!

My family and I love Monk! Even my mom watches it with us, and she generally can't stay awake for any movies. :P

My grandma taped the Olympics for us (she's amazing!) and now my little sister is an Evan Lysacek fangirl.
