So yeah, I’ve totally been sucked in by the Olympics! I usually watch them when they’re on…I’ve always like skating and gymnastics and everything, but this year I’ve watched just about everything. I really enjoyed the moguls, the snowboarding and the skating so far. The luge I don’t understand…or the skeleton one…omg! And watching anyone crash is always hard…omg and that guy who died? Poor guy and his poor family. What a horrible way to go!
A friend of mine sent me this link in an email this past week: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Olympic%20Narcolepsy
The sensation you get that you will abruptly fall asleep at any moment during the day due to trying to watch as much of the Olympics as you can the night prior, causing you to stay up way too late. A seasonal disorder, occurring in winter or summer only, and is of brief duration (around 2 weeks), and usually occurs in even numbered years. VCR, TiVO or other recording device is the only known remedy.
This is TOTALLY me right now! I am up half the night watching the Olympics, I have them on ALL.STINKIN.DAY. on the weekends…I even watch the late night recap after the news. WHO DOES THAT?? Me, I guess! LOL
I don’t even want to DVR any of the primetime stuff because I can’t stay away from media to not spoil who wins!
I’m a mess!!
How many more days are left? Eight. One.more.week.left!
I may have to call in to work…”yes, this is Heidi…I won’t be in today because I’m suffering from Olympic Narcolepsy. Will I be in tomorrow? Let me check the schedule…hmm..you know, I’ll just be off till March 1st when the Olympics are over. I’ll see you then.”
I wish! LOL
