How to feel old

Realize that it’s just a precious few years standing between Apolo Anton Ohno being “incredibly hot” and “young enough to be my kid.”

[Also, this just in: Ice dancing is STILL NOT A SPORT. Please take your spackling equipment (used for application of eye make-up) and go home.]

    But! They are athletes! Not! Complete goobers!

    Or the other way around. Whatever.

    The only way he’s “a few precious years” from being “young enough to be your kid” is if you are from West Virginia and related to Jerry Lee Lewis.

    Hon – he’s only 10-11 years younger than you. Your fantasy isn’t illegal. Just naughty.

    P.S. When I was 17 I dated a 33 year-old. You aren’t even the naughtiest.

    OK! So I’ve been out of commission for a few days and am just now catching up. SO sorry about the boob. And the invention convention. Ridiculously happy for Kira (who I’ve never met but so what? I heart her anyway). Total agreement on the ice dancing…although curling is worse. I mean what IS that? And who in their right mind CARES? Hoping you are having a great weekend. And that the boob is better! OK! Caught up now. ;)

    Oh no! You made me look…… and realise that I COULD be his mom. That is scary (see, I’m older than you). Shoot, I’ll never look at all those athletes in the same light ever again. Thanks Mir!

    OMG he is very nice to look at…when we lived in Colorado Springs he was practicing at the rink next to the rink my then 6 yr old son was practicing at…guess which rink I was in…drooling!! Nothing like a freezing cold ice rink and really hot speed skater!!

    Ice dancing is awful, but why can’t I bring myself to turn it off? I think I was mesmerized by the outfits.

    Jenn, the outfits! My GOD the outfits!!!! It’s like they have the same designer designing all of them, and they’re all equally hideous!! No backs–as much floral crap as possible across the boobs…and glitteries! Yeah, let’s put TONS of glittery stuff! Because maybe we’ll blind people so they don’t have to look at these outfits!!! Who, me obsessing?
