ode to the end of summer

hardly believing it's already the end of August. the Olympics come to a close soon, and i've just discovered absolut ruby red and tonic with a lime...

i have LOVED watching the Olympics this year, although they've cut considerably into my beauty sleep. ready for the michael phelps enema to be over, so other athletes can have a crack at the spotlight. yes, yes, he's great. we get it.

my personal favorites would have to be:
misty may and kerri walsh (of course!)- riveting and dominant as always

aaron piersol- i want one

nastia liukin- so graceful she makes it look like a cakewalk

shawn johnson- can i adopt her?

usain bolt- a. maze. ing.

clayton stanley- in your face!

my fave flick from the 80s...

life is good. moved. got promoted. good weather.

this year has been so up and down- i've felt life unravel, spiraling out of control and in flames; i've felt joy and happiness and contentment. let's hope the latter sticks :)
