the turino cold, 2006

not feeling too well...
because i caught OLYMPIC FEVER!

curling was on tonight, and so is pairs skating right now. i actually am very sick -my voice is completely gone; staying home with tea & theraflu watching this with a night in is just what the doctor ordered. (seriously, my doctor actually ordered this - no shows tonight, go home, watch the olympics.) i just caught the zhangs from china. she missed her triple toe loop and fell to the ice, but they both got up and skated the long program. way to go! olympics rule!

p.s., high-fives to the real-life olympians i saw at bally's today: bishop, sosenko, and a volunteer named trish who recognized me from the SC show at gilda's club last friday. sometimes this big city don't seem too big. man, that place is insane. i dare more people to join.

I was there...probably still a member. It's too big for me. My building has a fitness center, so fuck that place. Plus any place I have a 50% chance of seeing LB is a place I generally attempt to avoid.

feel better, TD! Watch Jonny Weir skate tonight, I became obsessed with him after randomly watching the US Nationals. Seriously, he is a winning combination of ridiculous campiness and talent. You will not be disappointed.

On behalf of the International Olympic Committee (the "IOC"), I request that you terminate all references to the Turino games. As a member of iO (f/k/a "ImprovOlympic"), you are forbidden from discussing, describing, or using trademarked or reserved terms, images, or materials related to or from the Winter and/or Summer Olympics. I hereby reiterate my client's objection to this flagrant misappropriation of intellectual property. These actions dilute the potency of the marks associated with the Olympic Games, as well as fostering confusion among viewers, consumers, and participants as to the status of iO's affiliation (or lack thereof) with the Olympics.

Further abuses or violations will be met with swift and decisive legal action on the IOC's behalf.

Thank you, and please call my secretary if you have any questions.

Madam, I am in the business of knowing such things. Well, sort of. Ok, not really.

Also, are you aware that you almost just called me Mr.T?!? I pity the fool. Annnnd so forth.

My secretary is me half-assing a high-pitched voice.

Yes, I just used a verb form of "half-ass." That's called versatility.
