    One more week of winter Olympics. I will admit I have not been watching.

    Highs of high 70s, lows in low 60s around here. Maybe not in the arctic north, but down here spring has sprung. There's green pollen on all the cars and the grass is greening up. I am still on sick leave from work so I will probably be sitting in a golf chair in the sunshine napping today.

    More importantly, sundress weather is around the corner. Isn't this your favorite time of year @Kubla Kahn ?

    You need more colleges, then. We get the sundress + cowboy boots look from March to October, especially on game days in the Fall before it gets cold.

    For instance, yesterday it was a high of about 6°C, and tons of snow was melting like crazy... today it's down to -11°C. Nothing worse than slushy humidity that goes sub-zero. It's like the complete opposite of summer-dress weather.

    Maybe you just need heartier women who don't let the cold keep them from doing this:

    Yeah, that's cute for about 45 seconds, and then they just become cold, shrivelled, and bitchy.

    This is WAY sexier:

    In that kind of cold, her and my dick would both be cold, shrivelled and bitchy.

    But inside, where the warm beds are...she'd be warm, sticky and disappointed. As God intended her to be.

    I have a chance to buy a 2012 Ducati Streetfighter or a 2013 Monster 696. I've had 2 Monsters so far and the SF is...an engineering ejaculation to be proud of. It's also $2500 and easily eclipses my skill as a rider. So, buy the sexy power you don't (yet) need or buy the sexy friendly you have already mastered and save $2500?

    Daytona 500 is this weekend. The trucks race is on currently. If you're the type person -- like me -- who watches just for the crashes, the Daytona 500 is basically a highlight reel.

    I hate this time of year at work. It's all about reports. Endless, endless reports. I have my doubts anyone ever reads them, but I'm still required to fill out reports.

    I spent my whole week at work staring at my computer, drinking coffee and Coke, and listening to the most obnoxious metal music I could find through ear buds in an effort to keep my brain functioning.

    And then I get home and find a BabyMetal concert DVD arrived in the mail, so I've obviously got to watch it. Christ. They're like little Asian cheerleaders jacked up on blow and anime. I'm getting tired just watching them run around.

    I was watching the Olympics last night and I realized something... I haven't heard one single bad thing about them. Unlike the last few games... no "oh shit, stuff hasn't been built yet", no riots, nothing negative (except for them throwing out the Trump and Jong Un impersonators).

    Sure, there's been some political stuff, like the Russians being kicked out, and North/South Korea... but all in all it seems to be a very well run Winter Olympics.

    Anyone else heard anything negative?

    Does the NK propoganda olympics count?

    Beyond that, no. They appear to be very well-run. The weather has gotten in the way of some of the mountain stuff and the organizer's have adapted and moved on. South Korea deserves major props. This is how Olympics SHOULD be handled.

    Call me crazy, but the WINTER olympics should be like the Superbowl played in an outdoor stadium... just play through it.

    In some sports and with some weather, yeah. But when you're talking white out conditions on the downhill skiing, that's like driving a race car at night without headlights. Or ski jumping in heavy winds, that's like... well fuck it, ski jumping is insane anyway. Just let them do it with a blind fold onto an air mattress.

    You've missed some good stuff. As Nett pointed out, SK have been excellent hosts. There have been some good gold medal stories, but my favorite was watching Ester Ledecka from the Czech Repuplic win gold in the women's Super G. She is a World Champion snowboarder and is competing in this Olympics in the snowboard slalom. She was like the 26th racer to go and the announcers all assumed the winning time was already posted. She borrowed Mikaela Shiffrin's skis (who wasn't skiing anyway, due to a rest day because of the compressed schedule from weather delays) and won Gold. The absolute stunned look on her face at the end when she looked up to see her time and her name in first place was just priceless. Fun stuff.
