5 Things: Going for gold edition


Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week and didn't regret the Valentine's treats at the office and at school. At my office a lot of coworkers brought Valentine's Day candy including a hilarious blast from the past: Fun Dip! I didn't even know they still made the stuff (which is all sugar, obviously). But I did behave myself and looked but did not touch.

Well, even if you mostly didn't behave with the V-Day treats this week, I think you'll appreciate that it's Friday. Of course, that means it's time for another "5 Things." What better to enjoy this week than the Winter Olympics among other things, right?

1) Check out one of the most exciting skating performances I've seen in awhile! Incredible timing for the difference in their heights and just altogether gorgeous. Totally worth the record-breaking score and the gold!

2) Then there's Shaun White's flawless halfpipe. Holy moly he makes it look so effortless! I guess that's what "in the zone" looks like. Wow!

3) I had a Cool Runnings flashback moment when I saw the first skeleton competitor from Ghana. Very talented guy and it's cool to see more countries competing in the winter games.

4) Like Jennifer Lopez and Fred Armisen I, too, wonder if they forgot to finish that ramp. Best quote of the skit: "This is the madness that happens when a country has no beaches."

5) And I thought this was hilarious so I had to share: In case you're wondering you can track Elon Musk's Tesla on its orbit. Even though there is a very slight possibility it could come back to Earth in the next... oh... million years. Haha!

Okay, that's all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
