Dearest Cullen Jones,

Sorry I awkwardly touched your left arm as you walked me tonight at Solas but I was overcome by your awesomeness/ fact that you totally know Michael Phelps-ness. I only did it out of love and admiration.

On a local news show tonight that recaps the Olympics, one of the reporters was talking to a little boy about his hero (and mine!) Michael Phelps.

reporter: 'So Halloween it coming up soon- Who do you want to dress up as?"

little boy: " Um, Michael Phelps."

reporter: " Oh really! What will you wear?"

little boy: "A Michael Phelps suit."

people are killing me today...

I tried to keep my head from exploding after hearing the following...

1.) "I didn't really like Christian Bale as Batman."

2.) "What did Christian Laettner do?"
- okay, that is a bit of an obscure reference but...he's like my Duke basketball hero. This is what he did- in case you were wondering.

(I just realized these both involve men named Christian...weird)

i saw this article today about Mark Spitz, who currently holds the record for most gold medals in one Olympics- 7. his record could ,and probably, will be broken by Michael Phelps. in the article, he complains about not being offically invited to the games, which would have been a nice moment to see the elder athlete "passing the torch" to the next generation but honestly he sounds kind of like a jerk. he says he would have won eight gold medals if there had been an extra event in the year he competed like there is now and that Michael Phelps will probably win the 8 golds because "He's almost identical to me..."

hello giant ego...

oh oh olympics!

i love watching the olympics! it's kind of dorky but it's really fun and exciting. AND the super hot men's swimmers are worth waiting four years to see- especially Michael Phelps. he's just amazing, amazing, amazing.

courtney and cupcakes

this is one of my most favorite things Courtney has ever said to funny.

“you’ve learned a valuable lesson: taste your store bought baked goods before bringing them to work, because if they are bad God will punish you in devestating and heart-breaking ways”

i love court.

i bought cupcakes for work today....and will taste them before serving them to my lovely co-workers.
