Hey guys! Sorry I havent been around, I got grounded from my computer for a bit heheh…anyway…I just found out that i WON javallama’s mascot contest!! YAAAYY!!!! Thank you all so much for voting for me!!!!! in addition to my pic being on Javallama’s sidebar, I got a virtual trophy, too! here is is:
Annnnnd…THE OLYMPICS!!!! WOOHOO!!! Josh has his own version at http://somekindofwonderfulness.wordpress.com so check it out!! But, for those of you who watched the opening ceremony, my fave part was probably the drummers, with a tie for second with the light-up green guys and the printing block guys. It was all so cool! And there were 2008 drummer guys and 2008 light-up green guys. the total cast of the show was 15,000 people! holy cow! and also, in Athens, Greece they spent 4 billion dollars on their opening ceremony. China spent 40 billion! and what a show!!! you need to watch it if you havent seen it!!
here is a little montage of 2 pics of the drummers i put together:
There are a few more, but not very good pics at http://www.nbcolympics.com/photos/galleryid=183797.html (link found at javallamas site)
