Are you watching any of the Olympics? What's your favorite? 

Did you ever have any Olympic dreams, maybe as a kid?

Do you know any Olympians?

Why do you think Putin NEVER EVER smiles? (lol)

Would you like to attend the Olympics someday (as a spectator)?

>5. Maybe.  Probablyn not.  There's often talk of trying to bring it to the DC/Baltimore area.  I'd likely put the house up for rent for the duration and then get the heck out of dodge.

LOL GH-Anchorage was in the finalists for Olympics about 20 years ago and at the time I was thinking everyone in our town would have to put someone up in our extra rooms, just to make it work.  There were a lot of hotels, we have always been a touristy place, but it just didn't seem possible at the time.  Since then, they have built so many more hotels--every time you turn around there is some new hotel going up.

1Are you watching any of the Olympics? What's your favorite? I don't usually watch much, usually catch some of the ice skating.

Did you ever have any Olympic dreams, maybe as a kid? Not at all.

Do you know any Olympians?  No.  But I heard one speak this summer and she talked about as a kid setting of the goal of going to the Olympics to be a xcountry skiier.  She told her parents this when she was about 9 & they told her--that's a great dream and all, but really you are not very good at it!  LOL she said she wasn't and the rest of the talk was about hard work, yadda yadda.

Why do you think Putin NEVER EVER smiles?  Stressful job-tough, cold war, USSR/Russia image to uphold.

Would you like to attend the Olympics someday (as a spectator)?  Only if it came to my town.  I wouldn't go out of my way to go to one.
