Well, now what?

So, you know when you get home from a vacation- a vacation that you've been looking forward to for a long time, say four years- and, then you get home, and you have all that laundry to do, and you have to go back to work, and things just seem so bland and uninteresting and uninspiring.

I think you know where I'm going with this.

Even the commercials, "After the Olympics...(something awful, like America's Got Talent)", are so depressing. What does any other programming have to offer me? Are any records going to be broken? Will I be moved to tears by moments of human greatness and grand sportsmanship?

I think not.

I always have a bit of hard time moving on. After the last Harry Potter came out, I was thrown into Post-Potter Depression. Everything seemed so insignificant and un-magical.

I'm not looking for advice on how to move on. Give me time.

Actually, I think I'll spend that time comprising a list of my favorite Olympic moments.

Oh, and I take back all those things I said about Michael Phelps maybe being a tool. I saw that Johnson & Johnson commercial during the closing ceremonies, where his mom talks about how great he is, and, the thing is, I believe her. I think he probably is humble and giving. I take it back. I take it all back. I'm a Phelps fan (I'm just a bigger Jason Lezak fan).


  1. Well, Val, at least there may be someone to wait on you the next time you go to Home Depot.
