Time Event
12:48a
Olympics
I watched 2 TiVo'd nights of Olympics just now, so these comments are slightly belated. Better than my 2-month-old entertainment magazines, or 8 or so year-old regular magazines.

The snowboarding commentators kept talking about errors. Big errors, impressive errors, spectacular errors. I'm not a snowboard expert, but I didn't see what was so erroneous. I finally realized they were saying AIR, not error. Never mind!

The men's figure skating long program was the primary event. I couldn't figure out why Plushenko had such a commanding lead. He was more like a jumping machine. Several of the others were much more graceful and exciting. Not that I'm qualified to comment (but that doesn't stop me).

I'm looking forward to seeing what Emily Hughes can do (go, Great Neck North!), though I don't know if she'll be as spectacular as her sister. When Sarah won, I was super-excited and left a message of congratulations on a GNN alumni site. I don't know if Sarah saw it, but my classmate B as well as former neighbor S saw the message, and E-mailed me. By the way, the Hughes family are said to be crossword fans.

Here we go again
Yet another article with the same old headline:

Today blukitten interviewed me for a biographical profile she's writing for a class assignment. If you're reading this, thanks for dinner at Ollie's. And PLEASE find a different way to start the article. Everyone uses "What's a __-letter word for __?" and thinks they're being original. This has been a public service announcement.

At the other end of the spectrum from student journalists, I had a fact-checking inquiry from Premiere (via our Sundance PR group). So there's hope that they'll cover "Wordplay" more than Entertainment Weekly - which would only require writing at least a full sentence on it.
