Its HERE! The Olympic games are on again. Every four years there is a little spark that ignites inside me. Its when the Olympic games starts. Its a time when countries from around the world who will normally never even speak to each other, come together and compete in one of the most non political activities.... Sport....
I always get a little bit foggy-eyed when the Olympics are on because I really enjoy sport, and this gives the opportunity for me to see sports that I would never get to see normally. It also brings out the best in humans. People helping each other and supporting each other.
I have been watching the 5 dedicated HD channels and it has been very difficult for me. I cant decide what to watch. Too much choice is never a good thing for a Libran. But I will soldier on and schedule my time on my new app. In any event, I am ecstatic that the worlds most gracious and friendly games are on TV!

I am in Amsterdam at the moment. Have been here since Saturday afternoon. I have a week of training next week and I had to take a weeks leave for this week because I extended my trip by a week. The reason I did that was because I got a ticjet online for the Madonna concert. Now those of you who know me, know what a big deal this is for me. I have always wanted to see her perform and always convinced myself that I would never get to. So when it all fell into place I was extatic. I started getting a chest cold on Thursday evening and felt a little sick on Friday night when I had to fly out. As usual I did not sleep on the plane and arrived in Amsterdam tired as all hell, feeling groggy from the cough mixture I had been drinking on the plane mixed with the correnza, and still sick. Yet I soldiered on and made my way to the Ziggo Dome where Madonna was performing. Met up with friends of friends and we finally got inside. She started her show 2 hours late but when she started, she proper started. An amazing show. 2 hours of non stop energy and dancing and singing. The best part was how she had remixed her old songs to be a little more updated. I am so happy I took this week off so that I could see her. It was worth every single minute of anguish and every cent. The only problem now is that I am in Amsterdam for a week without my T.
