Okay a whole 'nother subject. The Olympics! 

The Netherlands are doing such a good job! I'm so proud of us. We won 17 medalles on ice-skating alone so far! It's amazing how fast they can skate, I can't even skate an 8 shape.

Does anyone follow the Olympics?

Wow, 17, that's really good. You're doing better than we are. I haven't watched any of it yet, though I was going to. I think we've won just the one medal so far (think it was ice-skating, yesterday?). I used to be able to skate really well but I haven't been for ages.

Oh dear, ffe! We have two medals, and neither in ice-skating. Jenny Jones got a bronze in the snowboard slopestyle. The first ever medal for the UK on the snow. Lizzie Yarnold got gold in the skeleton, following her landlady Amy Williams' success in the same discipline 4 years ago. Still, not 17! But not bad!

I follow a little bit of it (the Olympics); the curling (the GB team is Scottish, well the female certainly and i think the mens is too, so there is that interest level) and the ice-hockey can be very good to watch. I thought the GB Gold was in some sort of sled/tray thing which you hurl down some circuit head first at silly speeds, but the overkill in the media puts me off and i lose interest quickly so it could very well be ice-skating - i have no idea.

Okay, okay, don't be mean to me. I did say I hadn't watched any of it. I just heard something on the news about us winning something...

Well i got it wrong too. Every time i put on the GB team we are either being disqualified (some Scottish lass in a skating sprint thingy - the cyber bullying she is getting is a disgrace and the people who did it should get hammered by the law), finishing four after getting overtaken by an Italian (some snow thing) or just losing. 

I can't say i care too much about Team GB.

Elise Christie, a Scottish speed skater who was disqualified twice from races.

I'm home (yay!)
Well that was a complete waste of my time :/ They could have done a 2 hour course instead of stretching it over the weekend but (hopefully) I'll get a job out of it.
The course consisted of:
Rules (what ever you do, don't put a finger on the students, if the student has fallen let another student pick them up, right...)
Irish dancing (The same dance about 10 times, fun)
Sleeping in the coldest room known to man kind (I was in a sleeping bag, with pyjamas, bed socks and a bed robe on and I was still freezing)
An interview
Eating loads of food

I'm starting work experience tomorrow at my old primary school because I'm on midterm break now so that should be interesting :D

Good to hear you got back and safely.

How were the folk who went as the weekend went by? Did the silent girl come out of her shell? I do hope so. These trips away can be very daunting for some.

Aren't things like that you went on generally made to last a weekend when they could take 2 hours? Maybe its to prepare you for work when you have to suffer 5 hour team meetings which could have been done in 30 seconds.

There was about 50 of us on the bus and 300 people there in total so I think she met up with some of her friends.
I know, tell me about it- I wanted to get out of the place at 8pm on the Saturday, it was boring me so much. But, alas walking home in the wind and rain for 7 hours wouldn't be the nicest thing me thinks and knowing me I'd get lost :/ I also got looks of disapproval when I told them I wasn't going to a meet-up in early March, feck off I'm going to see 'The Producers' that day!
As the days go by I swear I'm becoming a Mean Ms. Mustard
Now where the hell did I leave my ten bob note?

Quite right. Far better to stay in the dry and withstand the surroundings that get soaked and blown to the next county. You were assertive and confident in yourself and your convictions and able to not bow to pressure from others. Very good skills for your CV.

I am going to put that down on my C.V, t'is much better then "people-person". Of course I'm a people person, humans are meant to like being around other people (within reason of course). Who really wants to have no friends, relationships, whatever for the rest of their life? We're not meant to be solitary beings

And now me going into tangents shows I need to go to bed so night y'all a-hard-days-night-george-10

I got a new purse. It had me at strawberry. I'll be singing "Strawberry Fields Forever" a lot in the coming days. It is a Lulu Guinness, but it is from her JCPenney collection so it isn't nearly as expensive as the ones I'm seeing on her website.

I won't go and search the prices of such purses as i might cause a lot of angst here when i scream at the price. Lets just say that anything more than £20 and i'll be horrified.

I presume there is a difference between the UK and US meanings of purse by the way as a purse in the uk is quite small, isn't it? Glad to say i have a large knowledge vaccuum when it comes to purses.

The purse started out as $50/£29.84.

The sign on the table where the purse was said that it was on sale. It didn't ring up that way, but the cashier said she thought that it may should have. She went to take a look. She said it wasn't officially, but that she would give me the discount price anyway. Lucky me. AND, I had a $10 off coupon for the store.

I ended up paying $16.24/£9.69 for it, tax included.

Yip, I'm feeling good about this purchase!

EDIT: So even if I hadn't gotten the discount price, with my $10 off coupon, I would have only paid a slight bit more than your £ cut-off. Hope you aren't too horrified, mmm. :-)

Purse? Handbag? UK ladies help us out.

Interesting fact time. Lulu Guinness married into THE Guinness family. This means, indirectly, she is related to Tara Browne, who was the "lucky man who made the grade" and "blew his mind out in a car" in A Day In The Life according to John. One of her two daughters is named Tara, surely no coincidence.

I think, it the UK, that would be a handbag!

Did anyone see the skiing in the Olympics?

Miller won the bronze medal and then the reporter wouldn't shut up about his dead brother until he broke down. It was horrible and disgraceful and pathetic and about every other negative thing you could say. And the worst part is that it was on a 9-hour delay, so they could have cut it out, but they didn't.

EDIT: Still no video, but here's a transcript. Disgusting stuff.

 

Finally have a video here. I'm really mad at both the interviewer and the network. Sorry for ranting here.

I haven't watched the Olympics this year. I guess I'm more of a Summer Olympic person.

How awful for a the reporter to do such a thing! Some people's children I swear!
