I am writing this to let everyone know that for the next two weeks I will most likely be describing everything as "lovely" and saying "that's brilliant" every other sentence.
And I'm going to start calling cupcakes "fairy cakes" and the backyard a "garden". British jargon. I honestly think its lovely. I actually think it sounds just as beautiful as the French language sounds. After the time I spent in London I made a huge effort to adopt the words they use in England for awhile. And then I came back to America, and I started describing things as "cool" again. I think it's time to try again!
Plus, I need to practice for marrying a British guy one day and moving to London.
That being said, when it comes to the Olympics (I told you that's all I would talk about/think about from now on) I will never cheer on another team than my own country. Even if it is my beloved England. I have been walking around with an American flag in my pocket chanting U.S.A. everywhere I go for the last three days!
We have a friend from Paris staying at our house this week, and watching the Olympic swimming with her got rather intense when I quickly realized that she is equally as competitive as I am!
What are your guys' favorite events to watch?
I love the gymnastics! And track, of course. But it is all incredible.
What do you think about Michael Phelps getting beat?
I think Ryan Lochte is way cute, personally...
How cool is it that America sent more female athletes this year than male athletes? First time in Olympic history. AND three countries are sending a female athlete for the first time this year!!!!
It's Monday, which means the work week, which means I have much less time to watch the games. But know that I will be periodically be checking live results online. On that note, I really should get back to work. Office jobs allow for so many distractions!!! Yikes.
Have a lovely monday :)
