Fortunately I am well on the way to a full and restored constitution and while by the end of the day I am just plain exhausted; I remind myself how much better some fatigue is than camping out on our sofa and having the most exciting part of my day being violent swings of my temperature as it would skyrocket causing my muscles and joints to cramp up and then the full body sweat soaking my patofs and the subsequent crash of temperature. Yay.
What's that? What are patofs? Some of you may may remember a certain clown named Patof, and his dog Boulik I believe from Patofville where Polpon was police chief and Itof was a visiting Russian spy. 1972, au Français. If you remember him, then you may remember his pants. My red pajamas pants and my mustard coloured tshirt and voila, just like Patof. I call my pj bottoms patofs. Just a glimpse into the complicated world of Daniel's mind.
Hey, how about those Russian hosted Olympics? Not near as much fun without the Cold War. I say let's do away with the nationalism, no longer country against country, but instead ideology against ideology. Invite Al-Queda, Hamas, Hezbullah and their ilk to the Olympics and then they can do the short track speed skate against the Ku Klux Klan and Warren Jeff's and his FLDS church? The Bethesda Christian Church vs Jamaica's J-Flag in.. Bobsledding of course! it's EXtremo-Fun for the whole family!
But... Nationalism is here for a bit longer.. So. WAY to GO Canada!! WAY to GO Quebec! I think we are sitting with 4 Gold, 4 Silver and 2 Bronze. Quebec athletes Justine Dufour-Lapointe brought in Gold in Women's Freestyle Moguls, Alexandre Bilodeau defended his Gold in men's Freestyle moguls, and Charles Hamelin added another Gold in Short track Speed Skate to his previous 2 Golds and 1 Silver from '06 and '10. Ontario's Dara Howell took a Gold in women's Freestyle Slope-style.
On the subject of nationalism.. Were you aware that back in the early '70s during NASA's moon missions (yes, Armstrong et al did land on the moon in '69) that the Ruskies also landed on the moon? YEP. They did land two lunar rovers that happily wandered over large tracts of the lunar surface. They had a failed rover in '69 and then the two successful ones in '70 and '73. At the time there wasn't a hint of it on western news.
