...days until Olympics: London 2012.

I'm so there it's insane. It is my graduation gift to myself... two years later. I am beginning my "Operation: London 2012" savings account as soon as I get a "real job". It has been a dream of mine to attend an opening cermonies since... well since forever, as far as I can remember, not really sure how long that is, probably since the beginning of time.

I think that if I save a small percentage (who am I kidding? It will be a rather large percentage, but with nobody but myself and my bills to pay for, I think it can be done) every month until 2012, I will have enough to pay for my trip. I love the Olympics like I love breathing, and London even more so. Michael Phelps 2012? Yes, please.

I also want an english bulldog. I better get a good job.

In other news, my little brother's football team is going to the state championship this weekend. They will be playing the Joseph City Wildcats (gag noise). Reminds me of ancient times when I was a young little lad (is a lad a boy? maybe I was never a young lad, just when I was a wee little one I guess) and we were faced with the same Wildcats for a state championship game. Every time this thought comes to mind, so does the famous line of a song you may know,
"WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, MY FRIEND. WE'LL KEEP ON FIGHTING 'TIL THE END. WE ARE THE CHAMPONS, WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, NO TIME FOR LOSERS 'CAUSE WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS...OF THE WORLD."

That song is so much more fun to sing when you mean it. Yesssss. In your face Joseph City, my softball team of 2006 are the champions, I'll always have that to hang over your heads. All the members of my family have been state champions (Kymber pitched for our varsity team and therefore was part of my and Lacy's championship team). No pressure little bro, but you better win and uphold the family title. Go Mustangs. I bleed red (so does everyone else, but, you know, I bleed red for the Mustangs).

Some inspiration, little bro:

"Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end, we have to
Unify and watch our flag ascend, so come on
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS."
-Muse.

Oh, Misty. This rivalry between our little towns is vicious! ("You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores!")
I hope, for your brother's sake, that you all win.
I mean, there's always next year. Just don't tell anyone from Joseph City I said that! "Go Wildcats!" ;)
