I am so deep into the Olympics that I am totally neglecting everything. I promised to announce a winner for a book giveaway on my book review blog Wednesday, but didn't get it up until after midnight on Thursday. I haven't been visiting my regular blogs.... I don't write... I don't call..... But, it only happens every 2 years (if we count both Winter and Summer Olympics), so I get a free pass. Right? Um, don't I? In a desperate bid to win your acceptance I am going to try to bribe you with the information that P'Dub is giving away two $500 gift certificates to Home Depot. But you gotta enter by THURSDAY NOON PACIFIC TIME. So get on it people! Can I talk Olympics now or is it getting obnoxious? Tell you what, I'll wait to see what the general opinion is on my current obsession before I go on. Though I wouldn't mind discussion some of the current Olympic controversies..... Underage athletes; the Chinese "machine" that pulls children from their homes as early as age 3 to be groomed to compete for their country; Mark Spitz not being invited to the games to watch Phelps break his record... What do you all think? Am I driving you crazy yet?
