I blipped...and I liked it.

Greetings, my lovely people! I have been in a very musical place lately. One of my Twitter friends was linking music earlier in the week, and I was really enjoying the variety. So, I decided to join the site that he was linking from, and I think I'm addicted.

The music selection is good, and you are able to upload music to the site...but I'm lazy. However, I have only had a few times where something I wanted wasn't on there/was poor quality, so I'm content for now!

So, that's about it. I have more I could touch on, but we'll save the crazy for another day. For today, I just wanted to let you know what I'm up to and that you should so come blip with me.

"blip with me"... sounds kind of dirrty.

ps. I've also been using my account more, so feel free to add me if you have it!

Beboping through the kitchen

Greetings! So, I've been so completely and utterly unmotivated to update my blog. And even now, I'm updating out of some weird sense of obligation. I hope to be motivated for some hard-core blogging again soon, so I'm sorry that it's taking me so long to get motivated again! It's been a few weeks since I last updated, so I'll give you a brief recap: I went on a much-needed week long vacation with my family, and spent this last week watching anything and everything Olympics related. How exciting is that?

The Olympics have been great so far. Swimming has had the most exciting events and I've been anxious to watch all of the races. Gymnastics this year have been good, but no where near the levels of anticipation of past games. I'm going to blame the lack of international coverage on NBC, as well as the lack of Alexi Nemov. *sigh*

Hmmm... what else? Volleyball has been great to watch this year, too! Women's beach volleyball has been fantastic, with May/Walsh dominating the court. I can't wait to see if they get the gold (which, they are undefeated thus far, so I'll keep my fingers crossed for them!). For men's indoor volleyball, the US is also doing well, but my favorites are the Bulgarians. They lost to the US in the first pool, but that was their only loss so far, so I still have hope!

And.. my guilty pleasure Olympic events: Badminton and skeet. I'm kind of disappointed in myself, though, because I haven't watched any fencing. Bad Karen.

Now... my favorite Olympians. In no particular order, the pretties are: Razvan Selariu (I only saw him for a second while team Romania entered the NIS on the first day of prelims, but I still heart him!), Ryan Lochte, Sascha Klein, Andrey Zhekov, Ian Thorpe (he did not compete, but he was in the stands during the final men's relay that gave Phelps his 8th gold, so it counts!)...that's it for now. There are others, but those are the big ones. AND, I did a good job of being an equal-opportunity oogler, as they all are from a different nations.

Less than a week until the closing ceremonies. I'm going to be sad to see them go and it's going to be a long 4 years until we get more summer Olympic goodness. :( However, in about a month, all of my shows will be back on the air and I cannot wait!! I'm getting all twitchy!!

Ok. I'm off to clean and listen to more music. I've been in a very musical mood lately, so I've been dancing all over my apartment today as I clean. Super fun!!
