I feel like I’m the only person alive right now who doesn’t give a damn about the Olympics. I don’t hate America, I just don’t get excited for the summer games.
I don’t even remember where I lived exactly in 2008, and I’m almost positive I didn’t watch a second of those games either. Just not my thing.
While I was at Firefly last weekend, I decided it was mandatory that we throw a barbecue this weekend. The fresh air really spoke to me.
Our apartment has a grill and a pool that we hardly ever get use out of, so I figured having people over would maximize the pleasure of grilling and sitting poolside (although not simultaneously, it was a two part event).
However, I totally overlooked the fact that I had scheduled it during the Opening Ceremony.
Luckily, people were good sports about it and we actually had a really good turn out.
Since I work from home on Fridays, I had plenty of time to go overboard preparing the food. We had hamburgers, dogs, chicken sausages, pasta salad, taco dip, grilled veggies and spiked lemonade.
Tom is a good griller.
Actually, I don’t think it was too overboard at all. There wasn’t that much leftover food and people still had room for the not homemade snickerdoodles and sugar free apple pie I served for dessert.
We make pretty good hosts, if I do say so myself. Even if our parties take place during the biggest world-wide sporting event of all time…
(Gotta love a good overexposed picture – despite the ghost face, it hides all your sweaty flaws!)
I would never be so dense as to schedule a party during an OU football game though. And football is pretty American. And so are barbecues, come to think of it. So don’t call me a traitor just yet.
After all, I do live in the nation’s capital.
Picture taken at the W hotel, at a party I showed up to where none of the actual party throwers were in attendance. We waited until nearly an hour and a half past time it was supposed to start before heading out. How rude.
Then I spent the rest of the weekend not watching the Olympics. I’m sure I’ll hear enough about it today to catch me up anyway.
