Re: From Megsie

This is the sort of post I come up with when I don't have any ideas but am still determined to post :)


I want those pants for myself! Just for that, I'm going to force my husband to watch curling with me. (Aside: Italian television is TERRIBLE about broadcasting the Olympics. As in, they just don't. During the last summer Olympics, they only showed rowing and fencing. And all we have seen of the Winter Olympics so far on Italian TV is one awards ceremony. ZERO SPORTS. So we've been doing all sorts of top-secret fancy proxy server stuff to watch NBC online... which allows us to skip the Bob Costas commentary and is really not so bad a deal after all. How is the coverage in Sweden?)

The coverage here is actually pretty good, and we also get Eurosport. But I haven't really watched that much. I catch some online as well.

Love this list. Love YOU. When you come to the states, PLEASE let's make some time together happen!
(I'm with you on the ice dancing costume failures! GRIN.)

I would love to but not sure how we'll make it work. If (still an if), we make it for summer vacation, we'll be in Michigan, and possibly (hopefully) a few days in Chicago. I'm still waiting to hear if anything will happen with a work trip this fall, since the marketing manager is new and I don't know the dates of the conference yet. Keep your fingers crossed!!!

Fingers promptly crossed.

Although hmmm... I've always wanted to visit Chicago in the summer...


Well, if Chicago doesn't work - you could always come to Michigan in the summer. I'm near Port Huron. Love, Lizardmom

Ohhh... that would be sooo fun! It would be so great to see you again too! xoxox!
