You see, I've just read the search terms on Google Analytics and found people looking for 'woman with bag over her head" had landed on my blog not once but 17 times in one week. Personally, I don't want to be known as some kind of senior Miley Cyrus of the blogging world.
So, this post is going to be more cultural and topical. And definitely age appropriate.
So what could be more cultural and topical than sport?
And the Winter Olympics in particular.
Well it might be except for the fact that I don't think I've watched the Winter Olympics since Torvill and Dean got perfect scores in their Bolero routine 30 years ago.
However, in a serious quest to find some recent Olympic news I did uncover something interesting and age appropriate.
Torvill and Dean.
I would have assumed that at 55 and 54 respectively, they would have been lounging poolside somewhere enjoying their retirement and living off the riches of their long career. After all, they are still the only ones to ever receive a perfect score in Olympic skating history.
Relax? Of course not. Crazy, crazy idea.
Elite sportspeople do not think like you or I (excluding you Peggy as I know you've been cycling every day lately..well a week is ok) no matter what the numbers say on their birth certificate.
Torvill and Dean have apparently just returned to Sarajevo to recreate their winning Bolero performance. Not just in pictures people but actually on the ice.
Now given most of us can remember 30 years ago, I want you to watch this and imagine.....being dragged around an ice rink and not just out of bed. It is amazing. And no, I am not going to search for the original performance as I would like to think that in 30 years it has only got better. Just like us.
Now watch it and weep...for many different reasons .....like could I even bend down that far to put skates on??
This next video is really for my mother but anyone else can look too if you're not in a hurry to put your skates on. I was trying to explain to Mum that my house had been decorated by a warped exhibitionist called Kermit. It was all lost in translation so I thought I would show her my bedroom to explain it.
Now when watching the video Mum I know the bed covers are not straight. You see after watching Torvill and Dean I had to have a bit of a lie down to recover and forgot to straighten them up. Also, I have yet to get bedroom curtains, the ones that were there had to be removed quickly, for the sake of my mental health. In particular, please note how the ensuite and WIR has its own deck with sliding glass doors (new blinds there now).
So, why Kermit the exhibitionist?
Because on every window of nearly every room there
So now I have a house full of curtains up for grabs. Any midget exhibitionists can have the blinds free of charge, I am sure you know where to find me. Just google.
