So this is just basically a brain-dump of everything that's been going on recently. Since my last post, things have calmed down a bit, but we've still been super busy, which is just par for the course in the summertime.
We went to Minnesota to visit some friends (I took no pictures), FACES just had our 6th annual Casino Night (again...no pictures), we celebrated a friend's engagement (pictures? nah...), and our 3rd niece turned 1 (not even a phone pic).
I blame the lack of picture-taking on the fact that I would have nowhere to upload them if I actually did take any - I spilled water on my MacBook a few months ago and I think my battery connection has just finally died. It won't stay powered on, even when plugged in, so I need to take a trip to the Apple store and get my baby all fixed up. If you really care to see photo evidence of my life, hit me up on Instagram - cakeene.
In other news, OF COURSE we've been watching the hell out of the Olympics. I've always been a fan of the US swimming team, and gymnastics just amazes me, but I think I've found my new favorite sport... Track Cycling.
Have you guys watched this? Saul and I caught it last night and were DYING. What we gathered was that the winner is decided by a best 2 out of 3 situation, and the races consist of 3 laps around a insanely graded track. The venue they race in is nicknamed "The Pringle," because of it's uncanny likeness to the chip, which again, DYING. Also, when the racers get going, they spend the whole first lap in "intense psychological contention," (announcer's words, not mine) which means they go slow as freaking snails until they hit lap 2, and then they just take off. It is so weird. I don't understand the reason for going slow to start, but it's definitely hilarious to watch because it just looks like the guy in front is making sure the guy behind him is checking out his butt.
Nice glutes, bro.
The Olympics this year have been really weird in that I pretty much know how everything turns out before I watch it, which is a bummer. I try to stay off any internet site that might have spoilers, but seeing as how I work in IT and I'm at a computer all day, it's not as easy as it sounds. Also, my co-workers are really into the Olympics too, so basically everything has been ruined.
However, so far no one that I know of in my office watches Track Cycling, so that won't get spoiled ;)
