NEW - Public Enemies Columbus Merchandise
It seems Georgia has been attacked by Russia. At first I was worried about our peanut crop and Jimmy Carter but then I realized it was not Georgia in America but the one in Europe. WHEW!! No wonder it was not on the news as much as I thought it should be.
But now I'm reading that the Georgians (who call themselves ქართველები) want help from America.
HELLO!!!!! We have the Olympics at the moment. We're a little busy ourselves!!
If you want to impress your friends at the water cooler just start talking about the 2008 South Ossetia war. Here is what happened. South Ossetia, a State like Florida, declared independence 16 years ago and I guess Georgia just realized it.
So Georgia sent in troops and attacked. Russia, who is like a cat seeing another cat attacked Georgia just because well, it saw another cat, it's what they do. Of course Russia could not stop themselves and went into Georgia by mistake (they forgot to hand out maps I guess).
There is a lot of he said she said and finger pointing and frankly . . . . I got a little bored with the whole mess.
Back to the Olympics!
Hooray for Shawn Johnson. I was tired of her always getting the Silver. She always smiled at getting Silver but you could tell she REALLY wanted a Gold. When she finally won it she could barely contain herself . . . until she was on the podium and the National Anthem was playing and she was making a goofy little face the whole time.
And what's with her little march anyway. Does she always walk that way? Anybody else see that little march she does like a little solder?
So the International Table Tennis Federation wants woman to wear skirts and shirts with more curves to attack (attract - oops) more fans! I feel that something more akin to the beach volleyball outfits would work.
BUT THEN there is the Great Christmas Lights Swimsuit Debacle of 2008. Spain's synchronized swimming team are banned from wearing swimming suits with little lights sewn into the fabric. Can they not make up their minds??? Too much . . too little.
Hey - did I miss this event?? What if you had a little girl whose goal was to be a Olympic Ribbon Twirler. Would you quit your job and move to New Jersey to have some Russian coach train her for the next 15 years?
Is this something that would be useful later in life? Go on tour with Twirling With The Stars.
And what about those Gymnastic Stationary Ring guys. Have you ever tried that? Remember in High School. I would just hang there.
I want o see the legs of those guys - I bet they are scary skinny.
OK - Jaw Dropping Gorgeous
I received in the mail yesterday Sue's collage poster's and it is beautiful. So beautiful that so far every person I have shown it too actually has their jaw drop. Julie at Julie's Java House said "Now THAT is what I'm talking about". A few people wanted to buy them and the print will soon be made into postcards and another project I'm working on.
I'll have them for sale online - have to get the logistics's going with a new web address. www.PublicEnemiesColumbus.com will soon be up and running.
So - with that I must go!
