Interesting fact: It's quite hard to find Lucky Charms in Ireland and if you can find them they are at ridiculous prices, who pays €8 for a box of cereal???

Since when is a box of cereal a lucky charm?

Wait, you've never had Lucky Charms? Marshmallowy goodness.

I'm more of a Honey Bunches of Oats guy myself. I tend to stay away from the marshmallow cereals unless that's all there is to eat.

I don't like any sugary cereal. What a way to hit your digestive system at 7 in the morning. Actually, I can't remeber the last time I had anything but muesli, fruit, or fruit and muesli. I like what I know, I suppose.

Doesn't it also have a good amount of winter, which makes it easier to get good at winter sports? Most of our skiers, etc, learn and train on dry slopes. You should see how our skeleton Gold medallist trained!

 

A good amount of winter? Please don't make me laugh. I can't remember the last time it really snowed, like, a lot. It hasn't snowed at all this year and last year it has snowed a few times but it was mostly like that kind of filthy wet snow. I haven't made a snowman in what, 8 years? 

It hasn't really frozen a lot either, usually there's a lot of ice on the roads, but this year I haven't noticed anything. No problems with the trains either. It was a relatively warm winter. Christmas kind of sucked too. It was about 10 degrees celsius. Oh well, at least it was dry. Last year it was about 14 degrees celsius, which is veeeery unusual. That's the kind of weather we usually have in March-April. December 2012 was a weird one. In the first half of that month it was very cold, -12,8 apparently, at then all of a sudden it became warmer and then there was that Christmas of 14 degrees celsius I just mentioned. There were a few days where it snowed very hard apparently, but I can't remember. I think it didn't stay long enough or they were able to remove a lot. Anyway, we usually don't have very good winters or horror winters. Our winters are similar to the UK and Germany. Which isn't strange, as we're situated between the two of them.

Maybe this is another global warning message! I can remember 30+/- years ago, week after week, trudging down the hill through the snow to my school, years in a row. We got 3-4 weeks of snow a year. Since then, late 70s, early 80s, it's becoming rarer and rarer, and seems worse when it does happen.

I still think your competitors have easier access to good winter sports conditions than ours. After all, we need to get off a small island!

Russia showing how backwards they are in how they deal with protesters by their Patrol men (Cossacks) whipping, punching, pulling on hair and spraying members of Pussy Riot in the face with an unknown substance.

Still the good news is the Ukraine President has agreed a truce with the opposition which will hopefully stop the riots and deaths.

In very loosely related news, Russia has been eliminated from the Olympic hockey tournament.

The semis are Sweden/Finland and USA/Canada, both on Friday, winners go to Gold Medal Game, losers go to Bronze Medal Game. 

Sucks I'll be in school so I can't watch the game. I'll catch snatches of it at lunch, when I can watch on my friends phone. Really hope they win, but it sucks they can't play Canada in the GMG. Rematch would have been awesome

UK Mens Curling Team are into the Final, Women's Team are playing in the Bronze Play-off. So expect total overreaction if the men win and total overreaction if the women lose by some sections of the universe.

My work promotion passed one more level - the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Two more levels to go: the university president then the state board of regents.

Getting promoted in BB Land, and in real life! Excellent job.

Keep your fingers crossed for me on the work promotion if you would, Faceo. I've worked with the man who is president now. I'm fairly certain he will pass me for promotion. I haven't gotten on the bad side of any of the regents so I shouldn't have a problem there.

Wise observation, there. I thought it was usually only women that noticed things like that.

Congrats, Ahhh Girl, on passing that level. Now fingers crossed for the next two. It sounds like you're quietly confident? heartheart

GB Women's Team won the Curling Bronze Medals. 2Q==Image Enlarger

2Q==Image Enlarger

The UK medal tally will now match their highest amount won since 1924 (taking into account the GB Male Curling Team is guaranteed at least Silver). Quite something - until you find the number is 4.
