Toasters are Intrinsically Brave

I just hit my 130,000th stumble on StumbleUpon. That translates quite concisely to, “Claudia spends way too much time on the internet.”

In addition, I just found a video of the entire 2010 Winter Olympics opening ceremony.


All you need are blogs

The “OH GOD MUST WIN” link of the week.

The geeky link of the week.

The “possibly real/probably false but really funny” link of the week. I just want the figure skating men.


Haha, this is fun. Sorry blogs kinda suck, I’m reveling in being home and not doing anything of any importance.

Olympics underway!

YAY Olympics! I love the Olympics, I always have. I think it’s pretty damn awesome that I got to saw the flame/insane crowds/other Olympic-related insanity.


And we can always rely on the good contributors to Wiki to keep this as up-to-date as the news.

I also like to look at the flags. I like flags.

That is all.

I think I just won the gold medal in Sensory Overload

There’s a sort of freakish excitement of knowing that the Olympics are going on all around you (well, on most sides, at least).

Kate and I went downtown since we’re done with grad school horribleness for a few weeks.

There are SO MANY PEOPLE HERE. Here are some pictures.

This is why Stong’s is awesome.

Cambie Street/BC Place, where a lot of the events are happening.

More downtown insanity.


Flags outside of the Olympic cauldron fence. It was the bluest sky I’ve ever seen.

Olympic flame! Yes, they fenced it in. Yes, people were bitching.
ALSO: we saw part of the Swiss team. It was pretty awesome. That is all. Fun day.
