Get Over It!

8 Feb

Okay people, I’m getting pretty tired of all the negative commentary on the Olympic games in Sochi.  I mean, come on!  For 4, 8, 12 years some of these athletes have been dreaming, and wishing, and hoping, and praying for the opportunity to join these games.  For all those years, they worked and sacrificed for this very moment.  It’s the crowning peak of their lives.  Some of them may never again reach a moment like this.  

And all anyone can talk about is a few run-down hotels, an anti-gay law, and a broken light fixture.  Seriously?

 If  you can’t suffer through some bad hotels, then you shouldn’t travel.  I’ve been to five-star hotels in the US that sucked pretty badly too.  Missing internet in Russia? Talk about filled condoms on the sheets, pubic hair in the showers, AND broken internet in the US–all in one room.  Get over it!   These things just give you stories to tell to your grandchildren.  I once slept sans pillow and blankets on the floor, washed my teeth in a sink shared with 70 other women, and lived in the same clothes three days in a row when I was supposed to have a lovely hotel room.  That’s life!

Brrrr…. -58 degrees!!

Brrrr…. -58 degrees in Russia!!

Wow, according to this article Russia is seeing weather approaching -58 degree Fahrenheit. I thought seeing my first ever blizzard was pretty amazing (which actually, it was–I kept thinking of the “Little House on the Prairie” books 😛 ), but that is nothing compared to what these people are going through.

I cannot imagine actually being alive in weather that cold.  It is the coldest winter in 70 years?  Makes global warming seem a little far-fetched with record cold like this.  How can the world be getting warmer, if we are experiencing temperatures like this?

On the other hand, I bet their snowmen will last forever!  Makes going out and building one that much more worthwhile.  But that raises the question of who actually wants to go outside in -58 degree temps to build a snowman. . . oh alright me!  Cold weather always excites me!  🙂

I think this dude shares my love of cold, how awesome is that trick?!?
