The Handball is interesting. We were at lunch in the break room the other day. There were four or five of us in there. There was a sport on we couldn't identify. Teams of women (Norway and Korea) on an indoor court with goals like soccer goals throwing a ball in between the size of a softball and a volleyball. Whenever someone went down the hall, we'd say, "Hey, do you know what sport this is?" We must have asked half a dozen people. Miller said Handball, but we didn't believe him. One of the news reporters looked it up on the Internet schedule. Yep. Handball. Miller was right.
I stayed up until 2am watching Women's 20K Race Walking the other night. It's apparently a difficult sport because several women got disqualified. It was pouring rain in Beijing and there they went racing through the streets for twelve and half miles! I had to see it through to the end at 2am. I was very sleepy the next day. Lots of that going around during this Olympics. People from everywhere keep telling me that.
Speaking of pouring rain, check out this video:
That's my patio in the middle of Tropical Storm Fay this afternoon. (Not bad for being shot using the video mode on my digital camera, huh?) I had a thing to go to at church this morning that required lots of sitting and listening, but the food was excellent. Afterward I came home and took a long nap while it continued to rain. It started sometime around noon Friday and is supposed to go at least until 6pm Monday. What a weekend. I made brownies tonight to make myself feel better. YUMMY!
Last weekend we had a Beth Moore ladies video retreat at church. If you're reading this and thinking, "Wow, that sounds great. I wish I'd known about it," I apologize. While I was sitting there enjoying it, I kept thinking of people I wish I'd invited. People from my knitting group and people from work, too. I'm sorry. Next time I'll do better.
Yesterday at work we had a luau. I'll leave you with some photos to enjoy:
