    How can you do both hilarious, beautiful and touching in one post.

    Huh? How??? Tell me. Tell me NOW!!!!

  2. Maddy says:

    Sounds like you made a lot of good decisions over the years, one way or another.

    I could certainly have done with a doctor like yours a few years back.
    Eeek!

    Best wishes

    You know, I read in some article that Mr Swimmer Stud consumes around 12000 calories a day. If I were you, I’d be worried about him eating Wee Niblet…

    Thanks for coming out like this. Now I can admit that Maia and I are addicted, too. Girl is going to have to wrestle her for Phelps, or perhaps a 100 Free?

    All those golden moments and here I am wondering what it means when your feet are always hot….

    FWIW, you are the imelda marcos of throw pillows

    Shoes.

    if groomeo has spent the intervening years tossing out lines as great as that one (and meaning them sincerely) you have won a lifetime’s worth of gold medals.

    You are hilarious.I have tears of laughter in my eyes from the way you describe things. As if the birthing story wasn’t funny enough, the doctors visit finished me off completely.And I agree with the first comment from jazz, what you write is beautiful and touching as well.

    I love the Olympics too. But how come the male beach volleyball players don’t have to wear itty bitty, erm, ‘uniforms’ like the women do??
    Sounds like you made the ultimate catch with that Groomeo fella!

    Lacking the funds to fly to China, never mind the athletic prowess to gain egress to the Olympic Village, I am relieved beyond belief that Someone (All Hail Snurkle!) wedgied that tool, Alain Bernard. I can now sleep the sleep of the truly peaceful in the knowledge that such a necessary action was accomplished.

    You’ll score me an invite to the nuptuals in 20 years, yes? I’m even willing to sew sequins on Speedos.

  13. Glamourpuss says:

    You’re such a romantic – even with the bum grapes.

    Puss

    That was a fabulous list. You’ve set me into a reverie, which is nterrupting my blog-catching-up. Curse you for such a good post.

  15. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    I loved this post, which is fairly standard when I come here.

    It also made me realize that we should take stock of our victories, especially the small ones that meant something only to us because in them are probably the signposts of who we truly are.

    May the scrawny flesh of all the beehived biddies be royally feasted upon in the halls of perpetual hell. (Amen.)

  16. velvet says:

    I remember being really excited about the Olympics when I was a kid, but now, not being a TV watcher, I kind of forget to switch the set on. Hmm, sounds like I’ve missed out on some great stuff.

    Bummer.

    Your teacher did not actually say that about left-handers. I’m actually thankful, as a fellow lefty, that I was forced to learn to use a right-handed scissors. Because where the hell do you find a left-handed scissors when you need one?

  19. Ann(ie) says:

    I want to know that, TOO!! You can make me tear up, giggle and reminisce in one second flat. This is a fun idea for a post!! AND I am a little in love with Michael Phelps meself. 😉

  20. Dorky Dad says:

    Wow, what a smoothie. Can I borrow that one? I could use some points at my house.

  21. kimber the wolfgrrrl says:

    Oh, those shoes… they made me huff all the air out of my lungs and clutch my womb with lust.

  22. pistols at dawn says:

    My main problem with California women was always that: it’s impossible to knock a woman’s socks off when they’re wearing flip-flops, since only Germans wear socks and sandals.

  23. Mother of Invention says:

    And is your husband still barefoot??!!!!
    Love all your memories….I have many similar ones.
    I so enjoy your blog, Jocelyn. it is the best written one I reAD AND JUST SO HILARIOUS SOMETIMES. hOPE YOU WILL PRINT OFF AND BIND A COLLECTION OF THEM SOME DAY JUST TO HAVE IN A HARD COPY.
