So, on my nightly Tumblr peruse, I found this fantastic little drawing that basically encompasses my life:
Except, it’s more like *I have over 200 pairs of nice underwear, and no one to show them to. And that’s a true story. I actually picked up 2 more pairs yesterday from Victoria’s Secret because I had free panties coupons. I accumulate approximately 12-24 new pairs each year that way. I love it! BUUUUT, I really do wish I had someone else to appreciate the awesomeness of my massive collection.
On an unrelated note, somehow I got to be on Twitter and have started following Matt Grevers, Michael Phelps, and Ryan Lochte, and I looked through most of their TwitPic uploads. I’m currently still flipping through Ryan Lochte’s and the further I delve, the most amused I am. I’m also reminded of a post I saw yesterday on Tumblr where someone captioned a picture of him biting his gold medal with his grill on as being a douchebag, I loled because I was like damn, it’s true. I can’t quite decide if he’s the assholey kind of douchebag, or just one of those douchebags that exudes coolness. I think I need to know him IRL to make a legit opinion.
Said Tumblr post.
Also, he totally has Lochte merchandise on his website, including these Ray Ban style doucher glasses:
I want to hate it all, but the whole thing not only makes me laugh, but makes me admire him just a little bit.
Every 4 years when I watch the Summer Olympics, I always get in a hyper-fitness mood. I watch these people break world records and lull myself into thinking that I could totally be like, half as good as them. Of course, I know I can’t – which to the optimist’s point of view, is like setting yourself up for a negative self-fulfilling prophecy. But I’ve never been very athletic (unless you count my legit boss skillz in handball and gold-medal excellence in grunting during tennis) and getting my body into Olympic shape would take A LONG ASS TIME. Although, I would love to be that fit.
I was watching swimming and gymnastics earlier and I thought to myself, man, sometimes I wish I had swimmer’s arms. But then I thought no, I’d look far too top-heavy. However, I would love to have a gymnast’s butt. They have the most spectacular butts. If you’re watching the Olympics this year, please tune into the gymnastics and stare at everyone’s butts. They’re fabulous.
Also, team USA really got their asses whooped by France in that 4×100 mens freestyle relay tonight. They were so close, but France forged ahead those last 10 meters. Touché. ALSO, why did Michael Phelps even participate in the individual 400 IM? He didn’t train for it, so what was the point? 4th place was embarrassing to watch.
At least Ryan Lochte’s doing quite well this year. Seems like he’s the one to watch – competitively and eye-candily. Although I was reminded of the stunning Matt Grevers and his 6’8″ frame tonight during the 100m Backstroke and was hurtled back to 4 years ago when the Grevers-Lochte-Phelps trio was my swimming crush. *sigh*
Matt Grevers is a beast.
Lastly, I’m a little sad to find out that Ian Thorpe is not competing this year. Although I don’t think he competed in Beijing either. He’s getting old anyway, but he is such a babe. I remember watching The Thorpedo in Athens and Sydney. Bloody brilliant. They don’t call him The Thorpedo for nothing. ETA: He failed to qualify for the O
