Olympic Medals

Posted in Journal tagged , , , , at 1:30 pm by Jenn

I’ve been following the Olympic games as closely as AFN (Armed Forces Network) allows.  I’ve been up most days bright and early to catch the best coverage which comes on usually between 4am-9am Baku time. 

Yesterday during Michael Phelps’s medal ceremony I noticed for the first time the reverse side of this years medal and thought it was absolutely beautiful.  So, for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here it is

 

and see this page for more info on the design.

The US leads the medal count with 27 total medals, but China still has more total gold at this point (16).  I see now that Belarus has one medal, a bronze and that Azerbaijan has 3 medals, including one gold.  I’m going now to check that out.

I Got Sucked In

I joined another group on Ravelry, this one for Harry Potter lovers in anticipation of the upcoming movie and hopefully to motivate me to actually knit something with all of this Harry Potter themed yarn that I have stashed. 

Instead of getting inspired to knit, I was sucked in to taking a quiz to find out who my “Potter husband” would be, and here are the surprising results.  Hmmm, he sounds a lot like Scott.  LOL.

Your perfect HP man is James Potter.

Mrs. James Potter

Your guy was popular in school, but also kind of a jerk.  But that’s okay, because he grew up to be a pretty decent guy.  He knows how to have fun, but also how to be serious, and he’s a really good friend.  Sure, he’s the kind of guy that everyone says nice things about, but no one can be very specific about it, but that doesn’t matter.  We’re sure he really was a good bloke…at least to most people.
