Olympic Proportions...

by - Wednesday, February 17, 2010

In the past 24 hours I have been to:

- 9 different HBC stores (5 Zellers, 2 Bays and 2 Homeoutfitters)
- 3 different Walmarts
- 14 different McDonalds

In the past 24 hours I have procured:

- 4 pair of red mittens
- 2 happy meal toys that I didn't have (the figure skating Miga and the hockey goalie Quatchi)
- 1 happy meal toy that I already had (damn Quatchi luger)
- 1 Sidney Crosby McFarlane figurine

In the past 24 hours I have:

- confirmed the fact that I have some of the most awesome Twitter friends... I've been searching for a scarf for two (to no avail - yet) and I have another Twitter friend looking for the skiing Sumi for me (and she found it and is mailing it to me!!).
- watched about 14 hours of Olympic coverage. No lie. My eyes are going square.
- stood and sung the national anthem in my living room as Maelle Ricker got her gold medal.

And I still need:

- the bobsledding Quatchi (and possibly the skiing Sumi Yay for Kimli - she's sending me a skiing Sumi!!!)

The things I will do for the Olympics...

I'm going to need a holiday when this is all over.
