Getting this in just before midnight because I had an eventful day, sort of. I had a mole on my foot that my doctor was worried might actually be melanoma, so I got that removed today. It hurts in that to-the-bone sore achey way, and I don’t get the results back for a week. With my history, I’m seriously praying I don’t have melanoma, or that there isn’t any more now that that mole’s been removed.
Writing is going good. I have a few new ideas I want to work on after GPK is done, and after New Fate is revised.
Now, I’ve been into the Olympics hardcore this year, and I’m loving it (even though the US men didn’t place in team gymnastics). My major frustration has been with NBC and how they handle their coverage of the events. I know broadcasting the events live on TV isn’t an option, since most events start at around 3-4am, but they shouldn’t put off the coverage until 7pm just because that’s primetime, when they get the highest ratings. If I so much as look elsewhere online I’ll find spoilers about who won what event, and that is incredibly frustrating when I want to find out in the heat of the moment, to cheer for my favorite athlete or team.
I know they have live coverage online, but on the major events you can’t go back and re-watch the coverage when you wake up at 7-9am and it happened at 5am your time and NBC won’t let you watch the replay because they’re saving it for primetime. Just saying, that’s a load of crap.
Also I think it’s awesome that Great Britain won bronze for the first time in men’s team gymnastics for the first time in 100 years. Congrats boys. Also very said Jordyn Wieber didn’t make the All-Around finals, but oh well. Also, fencing is badass. The Italian that won a gold in fencing was named Elisa, so you know that’s legit. It’s all because of the name, right? ;P
So how are y’all? Are you watching the Olympics? What do you think of what’s happened so far?
