Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Should I be painting the living room or watching the downhill ski races at the Olympics. I am torn but the Olympics are going to win out. On my 2002 Winter Olympics poster on my I love me wall the second pin from the right on the upper part of the frame is Bode Miller's 2002 team pin. He gave it to me the night before he skied for the Silver Medal for one of my Forest Service shields. (If you double click the picture you can see the pin pretty good)

You can paint the wall anytime! Watch the Olympics! :0) Cool pin!

Delirious said...

I agree with the Olympics!

Don't you guys have DVR yet? :) I love being able to watch tv whenever it fits into my schedule, instead of the other way around. That being said, watch the Olympics. The wall will get painted eventually! :)

Damn!!! Bode ran first and ran a really good time---second racer beat him and the third racer beat him then those times stood through all the rest of the event---guess it is pretty good that he got the bronze---he got blanked last time.

You could move the TV to the room where you are painting!

Dee Ice Hole said...

I kinda did both. Since Bode skiied at 1:30 and they didn't show it until evening I turned on the TV and watched as I painted. Not finished yet but a heck of a lot closer than yesterday. US is doing good 8 medals out of 48.

I watched his run. All three medalists were going so fast. It scared me just watching it in HD.

Dee Ice Hole said...

NM--Yeah but to run 3, 2, 1 right out the gate is in itself awesome---great games goin' on even with tehproblems they are having with the weathere and break downs of equipment---these games should be dedicated to all the paralympians since they have had so many problems and they still keep goin' on.
