9 Things about right now. In no particular order.

1. I hate the olympics. For as much as I like sports in general, I couldn't care less about the olympics. And that's all I have to say about that.

2. Speaking of the olympics, would someone like to explain to me how China, a country that only won ONE medal in the 2004 summer olympics (notice I'm not capitalizing "olympics", because I hate them) have SIXTY-ONE medals in 2008? They're the host country. Something is up. You don't go from ONE medal 4 years ago to SIXTY ONE medals with a week to go in 2008. I don't like it. Not one bit.

EDIT: I stand corrected. Apparently the broadcaster said China only won one medal in the specific event he was covering at the time, not the entire olympics in 2004. China won over 60 medals each of the last two olympics. But whatever.

3. The new Star Wars movie (the animated one) is dreadful. I mean, AWFUL. Absolute rubbish. The entire 100 minutes of the movie, I sat there wishing it would end. Seriously, from the opening scene is when I started thinking that. Gone was the traditional Star Wars music from the opening. Gone was the traditional golden scrolling text from the beginning. Gone was any resemblance to any other of the 6 Star Wars films. I could start and stop with Anakin having a padawan. I could also start and stop with his female padawan calling him "Skyguy" the entire film. If I'd had coke or popcorn, I would have thrown it at the screen. What an absolute disappointment and black eye to the Star Wars franchise and universe. What's even worse is that in a few months on cable, the movie is contuining in sitcom form. Uggggh. Kill me right now. Why? Because I know despite how much I absolutely loathed this movie, I'll still force myself to watch the tv episodes. George, please stop being the executive producer and supreme-o decision maker. Let someone else take the reigns for a while. Go make Howard the Duck 2: Electric Boogaloo.

4. I went golfing on Friday. Notice I said I didn't play golf. I refuse. But Justin got married Saturday and he wanted all of his "guys" to golf with him on Friday. It was about 368 degrees outside, so thank God I wore 50SPF. But man, what a horrible "sport". There is nothing fun about it. Nothing "athletic" either. It's a skill, I'll give you that, but it is most certainly not a sport. And the worst part? My friends, all turned into uppity bastards for the 6 hours we were on the course. It's like once you put on your stupid polo shirt and plaid shorts, you HAVE to act like a prick. The one good thing that did come out of it though, was that spending those 6 hours watching my friends golf, solidified my stance on never ever wanting to do it myself. Chlorophyl? More like BOROPHYL.

5. I start school next Thursday. So technically, this is my last week as a free man before I begin my journey into pastorhood. I'll be in Las Vegas sinning it up for the next week if you need me, under the name "Satan McLucifer". Wow. That joke and this whole #5 are completely inappropriate. But funny.

6. I caught a cold last week. It's just now getting better. Does someone want to explain THAT to me? It was like 105 degrees all of last week.

7. I spent my entire day today cleaning my house, grocery shopping and doing laundry. I officially need my man license revoked.

8. I need a lawnmower. BIG TIME. My backyard looks like the Vietnamese jungle. My front yard looks like an abandoned baseball outfield.

9. Seriously. The olympics suck.

And then this.

    China won 32 gold medals, 17 silver medals and 14 bronze medals in Athens in 2004, 63 total. They totally dominate synchronized diving, badminton, table tennis and artistic gynastics.

    I don't like the swimmer guy..I refuse to say his name. I wish someone would give him a face transplant. I have had "the cold" for like two weeks, so suck it up. My favorite picture is the last one on the right.

    First, Olympics are great...part of them. You have to narrow in on the good ones. Second, agree 100% about golf. Finally, Olympics (noticed I capitalized that) are great and you suck.
